Matanga Maharishi was born in the Treta Yuga, and he was mentioned in Ramayana. Lord Rama and Mata Sita visited the ashram of Matanga Maharishi near the Mountain Rishyamukha.
He was the sincere devotee of Shiva and Parvati, and due to that Mata Parvati had taken birth in the earth as his daughter and she was called as Matangi.
He also got great boons from Lord Shiva, and he wishes the prosperity of the people in the earth. He got many disciples and taught them Vedas and divine scriptures and through his guidance, his disciples were become great sages. He is considered as one among the ancient rishis, and contains good features. He would never get angry and never hate others. He used to think only about the goodness of the entire universe, and lived a pious life.
It is believed that due to his good karmic deeds, after the end of his life, he went to the abode of Lord Brahma, the Satyaloka.
Let us worship the great rishi and be blessed.
