Maharishi Bhrigu was a Manas Putra (born from a wish). It so happened that when Lord Brahma was thinking of making this universe he faced some problems for which he requested maharishi Bhrigu ji to help him out. Maharishi bhrigu is also called �Prajapati� (Creator) as he was created by lord Brahma to help him in the process of creation of the universe . Maharishi Bhrigu ji was married to Khyati ,the daughter of Daksha. He had two sons, Dhata and Vidhata and a daughter shri also known as Lakshmi.  He had one more son, who is better known than Maharishi Bhrigu ji himself �Shukra. The sage chyavana is also said to be his son.

          It is well known that destiny plays role in the formation or birth of remarkable things. It so happened that when thousands of years ago this world was created then after four years all the supreme powers saw that the human kind was in deep pain and problems so they decided to perform a Yagya (A religious ceremony) for the well being of humanity. Just then Narad ji raised a question asking that who will be the head of this Yagya. All the Rishi Munie�s were astonished at the question raised by Narad ji and thought he had a very valid question to be answerd. Maharishi Bhrigu ji told him that the creator of this world can only lead us but then again Narad ji replied that out of the three Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh only can lead not all and very cleverly gave the duty to Maharishi Bhrigu ji to find it out by himself. Maharishi Bhrigu ji accepted the task and asked the munies to give him sometime to resolves this matter.

Lord Vishnu was astonished to see Maharishi Bhrigu ji standing there. So he bended down his head folded his hands, and said to Maharishi Bhrigu ji, �My Lord, My chest is the strongest thing in the world, like a mountain, but your feet are so soft. May be you got hurt while kicking me. So please forgive me for that.� While listening to the words of Lord Vishnu Maharishi Bhrigu ji declared him the greatest. But goddess Lakshmi, wife of Lord Vishnu, perceived it an insult of her husband. She gave a curse to Maharishi Bhrigu ji that he and his community (Brahmins) to which he represent will be parted away from wealth.
