JAMBAVAT

Indian fabulous creature

Also known as JAMBAVAN

King of the Bears.

He added herbs to the great sea of milk that was churned into AMRITA — so he is a creature of taste.

However, he got himself into trouble with KRISHNA by purloining a sacred ruby, and had to retire to a cave reflecting on his former days of glory, such as when he fought with RAMA against the demons.

We feel he deserves a large pot of honey for services rendered.
