Every Devta and Devia has a specific place as home. We can see that only Narad muni keeps travelling across all the lokas everytime.

Where is his home location? Or is there any reason that he has to keep travelling across all the lokas continuously?

  • Narad muni is one who is allowed to go anywhere at anytime that's why is a trylokya-ramani or the one who can roam or is roaming in 3 worlds viz heaven,hell,mrutuloka(earth or physical universe)

  • Yes, he is, but I think he has some kind of "shrap" that he has to keep moving from one place to another. I want to know this story.

1 Answer 1


In the start of Satya yuga, Narad muni misguided Daksha Prajapati's all sons, to take Sanyaas and perform meditation for Lord Shiva.

Because of this, Daksha's sons declined to marry and to accept society. They all went to jungle to perform meditation.

This made Daksha Prajapati worried about how he will handle the kingdom, because he will not have any successors. He asks his sons who misguided them.

When Daksha knows Narad is the root cause, he curses Narad muni, that he will not have any home/family and will have to travel places, here and there with chanting of Narayana.

Narad muni accepts his curse as the curse states the chanting of Narayana.

As per Hindu scriptures, Narada does not have any home, but he has spent most of time in traveling only.

From Vedabase,

SB 6.5.43: You have made me lose my sons once, and now you have again done the same inauspicious thing. Therefore you are a rascal who does not know how to behave toward others. You may travel all over the universe, but I curse you to have no residence anywhere.

  • As per Hindu scriptures.. which scripture? Please provide source..

  • Chanting of Narayana is not part of the curse according to the source provided (how could that even be considered a curse at all?), so please update the answer accordingly.
