KUBJA – An ugly widow


The myth of Kubja is embedded within that of Tilottama, an apsara. Kubja either gained liberation from her performance of auspicious rituals, especially the one known as the Magha bath, or was transformed into a beautiful woman by the embrace of Sri Krishna. Kubja was the rebirth of the celestial damsel called Tilottama, or Kubja might be seen as the incarnation of Tilottama.
