    In Shreemad Bhagvat purana we find mentioning by Narada that ,in previous birth in previous kalpa he was a servant boy (Dasi-putra) of a Brahmana.And only child.But no mentioning of name of his mother. Dec 28 '16 at 12:25

Devarshi Narada was created by Lord Brahma alone. So,he is only Lord Brahma's progeny.

I am using the book "Essence of Narada Charitra" as my reference here:

Creation of Brahma:

Later on Brahma continued his Srishti from his ‘Prishta’ (rear side) Adharma and Alakshmi; from his ‘nabhi’ (navel) Vishwakarma the Shilpa Guru, from his ‘Balaparakrama’or prowess Eight Vaus; Manasa Putras (mind-born sons) Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana, Sanatkumaras; Swayambhu Manu and his wife Shatarupa the Administrator of the Universe.......from Brahma’s shadow came out kardama, Panchashikha from his navel, from chest came out Odhu, from Brahma’s throat came Narada, shoulder Marichi, from neck Apaantaratama, from tongue Vasishtha, from lips Pracheta, from left belly came out Hamsa (Swan) and Yati from the right belly.

  • why dont you provide a puranic account for this maybe vishnu purana or skanda purana.
