Beautiful story in Srimad Bhagavatam

  • OM SAI RAM!!!

    There was a beautiful story in Srimad Bhagavatam,
    the life story of Krishna.

    There was a rich man who was devoted to Krishna.
    He used to observe the ekadashi vrata every month.

    He would fast on ekadashi day, and the next day he would
    feed the pious people, the devotees of Krishna.

    It is considered a great punya,
    an act which will bring a lot of merit.

    Pleased with his vrata, Krishna appeared before him
    one day and asked 'My son, ask me for a boon!
    You are doing so much wonderful work.'

    The rich man said, 'If you bless me with more and
    more wealth, I will be happy to do this service on a
    large scale.'

    Krishna blessed him with abundant wealth and the
    man was very happy.

    There was another devotee of Krishna, an old lady
    who used to think about Krishna and meditate on Krishna
    all the time; she was practically living with Krishna.
    She was a poor lady and had only a cow as her property.

    She also used to observe the ekadashi vrata, and the
    next day she would make a little butter from the
    cow's milk and share it with a few devotees of Krishna.

    One day, Krishna appeared in front of her, but he did not ask
    her what she wants. He just ate up all her butter and

    And that very day, that old lady's cow died!

    Naturally all the gopikas living around Krishna asked him,
    'What is this? That man is already rich, but you went and
    showered more wealth on him, and this poor old lady has
    only one cow, and you went and killed that cow and came back.
    What is this?'

    Then Krishna said, 'See that rich man still has a lot of desires.
    No problem. He asked for wealth and I gave him wealth,
    let him do good work and enjoy and finally exhaust all his desires.
    Let him come to me for enlightenment when he is ready!

    But this old lady has no attachment other than that one cow.
    It is the only attachment which is stopping her from becoming
    enlightened and merging into me completely. So I took away
    that attachment, that's all!

    Now she will reach me completely. She will achieve jivanmukti,
    and the eternal abode of my feet.'

    So when God loves you, you can never be sure what will happen!

    Sometimes He gives, sometimes He takes away, you can't
    judge anything from outside.

    And many a time, understand that He is expressing His love
    more strongly when He takes away something from you!

    Understand that when He takes away everything else from you,
    He is making a strong statement that you belong to Him alone!"


    (Interesting story......rcd thru whatsapp, sharing ....................)

    If you are sad n in pain, Be as the ocean, and release. The ocean tides don't pause and hold in anything, they ebb...and then they flow. Only briefly holding on top of a wave for a moment. If something from your past bubbles up, simply take a deep breath, and let it go. More love!
