Apalala the River Dragon who was Converted to Buddhism-

Apalala *River Dragon who Converted to Buddhism-
The Apalala River Dragon
Apalala is a fascinating Indian River Dragon that I thought you my dear
friends and followers would find interesting. From what I cold tell you, in the Buddhist Mythology, 
he was the only dragon ever to be converted to a human religion and by Buddha himself. It is said that the Apalala River Dragon lived near the Swat River in India where Buddha visited often. Apalala was an Indian Naga Dragon-A greenish dragon like creature with two legs, two arm and a long tail. Apalala had no wings and a human head. He lived by the Swat river and was the Guardian of the source of the Subhavastu River.
The legends have said many versions and it was very difficult to find what I did find for you.
In one legend it tells that Apalala was unhappy with his life. And It happened to be that very day when
Apalala turned into a
huge Dragon causing
destruction to the
people of India
Buddha himself came to call at the river that Apalala dwell in. And the Buddha actually spoke and had
a conversation with the River Dragon Apalala. This is when Apalala was then converted to Buddhism 
found contentment. As the tale goes Apalala was very Happy so in gratitude the Dragon began using 
his charms to keep the other powerful dragons of the area in check and protect the all the people of 
the India region.After Buddha converted Apalala to the human religion of Buddhism, Apalala then set out to teach it to other dragons, but the other dragons drove him away. However they still allowed Apalala to still 
continue to teach the humans. As most legends goes this went well at first. The people of India were very grateful and offered Apalala the River Dragon a tribute. Sadly over time the people of India started to take
Apalala for granted and eventually even forgot about him.  Well this angered the Dragon Apalala. 
So he turned against humanity and prayed to become a poisonous dragon, causing storms and 
destroying the land of the people. From what I understand this is one of the more popular legends in
Buddhist folklore. The tale is often told to Buddhist children for them to learn their happiness lies in 
their faith and not to take anything for granted. So there is a moral to this tale of the
Apalala River Dragon who wanted to help the people of India.. Never take anything for
granted as the people of India did with the kindly Dragon Apalala did and then he 
turned on them into a deadly Dragon causing destruction and terror to their homeland.
I hope that you all Enjoyed this post about the Apalala River Dragon. I love you all 
my dear friends and followers very much..
