According to Hindu mythology, Narada Muni was a Hindu Gandharv and was cursed to take birth on earth. His father was a servant to a group of saintly priests, who were also served by Narada. The priests offered Narada prasad of Lord Vishnu and narrated the tales of the Lord. Narada became an ardent follower and started chanting the name of Lord Vishnu. Impressed by his devotion, Lord Vishnu appeared to him and told him that Narada can gain his divine form only after his death. Hence, Narada dedicated his entire life in worshipping Lord Vishnu.
