Significance Of Manibhadra :-
Manibhadra was a son of Kubera and his wife, Bhadra. He had a brother named Nalakuvara. In Ramayana, Manibhadra fought with Ravana to defend Lanka but failed. In the Mahabharata Manibhadra is mentioned along with Kubera as a chief of the yakshas. Arjuna had worshipped him. The Bhagavatam narrates a story about the brothers. Once Manibhadra and Nalakuvara were playing with their respective wife or apasaras in the river Ganges. They were drunk and nude. When god sage, Narada passed by to visit Vishnu, the women covered themselves but the nude brothers were too intoxicated to see the sage and started to boast about themselves. Narada wanted to teach the brothers a lesson and cursed them to be turned into trees and only to be liberated by Vishnu avatar. During Dwapada Yuga, an infant Krishna was tied to a mortar by his mother, Yashoda as a punishment for eating dirt. Krishna crawled with the mortar, however the mortar was stuck between two trees. Krishna using his divine powers uprooted the trees, liberating Nalakuvara and Manigriva from their curse.
