Since Kuntī got a boon from the legendary, Ṛṣi Durvāsa himself, I guess, noone would disrespect his boon thus would have descended down to beget Kuntī a son, as per her choice.

So, why did Panḍu and Kuntī limit themselves with the elemental or solar or netherworld deities only (i.e., Sūryadeva, Dharmarāj, Vāyudeva, Indradeva, & the Aśvinī Kumāras)? Why not invite the 'higher' primordial Gods who are definitely 'more powerful' and thus more 'eligible'? Why not call the Trimurtis (Brahmā, Viṣṇu, Śiva) or Gaṇeśa, Kārtikeya, etc.?

Does any scriptures or any eminent acharyas or hindu personalities or saints, specify or discuss any such reasons for this presumably "hypothetical - situation"?

    @Dark Knight - Suryadeva is extolled many times as a direct Brahman. He is also one of the Pacha-Mahadevtas in the Smarta tradition and thus, is on par, in equivalence to the other 4 deities (Ganesha, Shiva, Vishnu & the Deví). So, I think, there Must be a better and more convincing reason rather than this 'devtaa vs bhagwan' वाला reason. :P :)

    Here one relationship of kunti need to be understand she is daughter-in-law of vedvyas(lord sriman Narayana) The mantra she got it from durvasa whom is regarded as father. Brahma by default will not materialize even if summoned because he will not play any role in the world he had created.

    @sv this is not hypothetical question when tirumurti is there why did she begot from devathas>? that is superb valid question. when you have one wish which will give moksha why would anybody aspire for oppulance or place or richness for that matter..

    @sv. I don't think this is a hypothetical question, because the questioner asked "why didn't...." and not "what if....." Mar 17 at 12:17
