Some of them are as follows: The tale of Vasishta-King Vishwamitra (Kaushika), after becoming impressed with Vashishtâ€™s cows, Kaamadhenu and Nandhini, tried to acquire them by force. But, even after repeated attempts was unable to do so. Thereafter, he penance in front of Lord Shiva and acquired divine powers in exchange.

The Significance of the Arundhati Star
Great Bear (Ursa Major)-known to us as Saptarishi Mandala, the seven easily visible stars maned after Seven Sages-Kratu (Dubhe), Pulaha (Merak), Pulastya (Phad) and Arti (Megrez) making up the "square" and Angiras, (Alioth) Vasishta (Mizar) and Marichi (Benetnasch).
Nearly half of the starts in the sky are double or multiple. If you look closely at Mizar, the star in the middle of the Great Bear's tail, you many detect it has a tiny companion. This star, Alcor, was known to the ancients all over the world, and was sometimes used as a test for good vision. In any binoculars, Alcor can be plainly seen as separate star.
Mizar- the middle star in the tail has a visual companion Alcor.
Mizar is known to us as Vasishta the great ascetic, and alcor as Arundhati. In vedic literature, she is regarded as the epitome of chastity, conjugal bliss and wifely devotion and a character that is unblemished, inspiring and worthy of imitation. During a Hindu wedding, after the Saptapathi ritual, the groom shows the bride the Vasishta and Arundhati double stars as an example of the ideal couple symbolizing marital happiness and devotion. It is only symbolic.
Arundhati is the wife of Sage Vasishta, the first teacher of Lord Rama and as the couple is asked to see the stars as a mark of wedding togetherness, the couple is asked to live life with full understanding like these.
Force people - there are many stories associated with Arundhati.
Many of the poojaris, marriage prestart/devotees of Shiva-Brahmins who conduct the marriage knows to show the stars and it is definitely not possible to show them in daylight â€“ so ironically a marriage starts with a lie of showing the star-probably it would have been apt when it was started for night marriages and particular seasons when the twin stars can be seen.
A copper representing a human head style in the manner described for the Rig Vedic Vasishta has been dated to around 3,700 B.C in three western universities using among tests carbon 14 tests, spectrographic analysis, X-ray dispersal analysis and metallography (Hicks and Anderson. Analysis of an Indo-European Vedic Aryan Head-4500-2500 B.C., in Journal of IE studies 18:425-446. Fall 1990). This indicates that some Rig Vedic customers were already known at a very early time. The head was not found in an archaeological context, as it was rescued from being melted down in Delhi.
Vyasa along with Pandavas, the five brothers of Mahabharata. He is typically described in ancient and medieval Hindu texts as a sage with long flowing hairs that are neatly tied into a bun that s coiled with a tuft to the right, a beard, a handlebar moustache and a tilak on his forehead.
In Buddhist Pali canonical texts such as Digha Nikaya, Tevijja Sutta describes a discussion between the Bbuddha and Vedic scholars of his time. The Buddha names ten rishis, calls them "early sages" and makers of ancient verses that been collected and chanted in his era, and among those ten rishi is Vasishta (the Pali spelling of Vasishta in Sanskrit).
Vasishta in Buddhism
In the Buddhist literature of Vinayapitaka, Lord Buddha Declares that only a few Vedhic Rishic had true knowledge of the Vedas and Vashistha was one of them.
Vasishta is the author of Mandala 7 of Rig - Veda (or) the seventh book of the Rig-Veda, one of its "family books" and among the oldest of Mandela of Rig-Veda layer of hymns in the Vedic scriptures of Hinduism. The hymns composed by Vasishta are dedicated to Agni, Indra and other gods.
These hymns are particularly significant for four Indravarunau hymns. These have an embedded message of transcending "all thoughts of bigotry", suggesting a realistic approach of mutual "coordination and harmony" between two rival religious ideas by abandoning disputed ideas from each and finding the complementary spiritual core in both. These hymns declare two gods, Indra and Varuna, as equally great. In another hymn, particularly the Rig Vedic verse 8.83.9, Vasishta teaches that the Vedic gods Indra and Veruna are complementary and equally important because one vanquishes the evil by the defeat of enemies in battles, while other sustains the good during peace through social-ethical laws. The seventh mandala of the Rigveda by Vasishta is a metaphorical treatise. Vasishta reappears as a character in Hindu texts, through its history, that explore conciliation between conflicting or opposing ideologies.
Vasishta hymns in the Rig - Veda are among the most intriguing in many ways and influential. Vasishta emphasizes means to be as important as end during one's life, encouraging truthfulness, devotion, optimism, family life, sharing one's prosperity with other members of society, among other cultural values.
