KRISHNA KNOWS OUR NEEDS – STORY
There was one sincere devotee.
One day Krishna was very pleased with his devotional service and appeared in front of the devotee.
Krishna told the devotee to join Him for a walk in the town.
Taking the form of Brahmanas,both walked on the street.
Krishna told the devotee that He is very hungry.
On the way they saw a house of a rich merchant.
The merchant was giving a feast as he was very happy due to the money he earned in his new business.
Krishna and devotee entered in the house and requested for some food.
The merchant saw them and got very angry with his watchman for allowing the poor Brahmanas in the house.
Both were asked to leave immediately.
After coming out of the house, Krishna said “I bless this merchant so that he gets more wealth”.
The devotee was surprised but did not say anything.
They went further and saw one Sanyasi on the boundary of the town.
Both approached him and requested for some food.
Sanyasi had one roti with him. He said “I have this one roti in prasadam. We will share this one. I also have a cow so I will get you a glass of milk. That should fill your stomach”.
After taking prasadam and milk, both thanked the Sanyasi and left.
After walking some distance, Krishna said “Let this Sanyasi’s cow be stolen tonight”.
Now the devotee was bewildered. He said “Prabhu, how is it? You gave more money to the rich merchant who had thrown us out and You are taking away the cow from that poor Sanyasi.”
Krishna replied “The rich merchant is very much caught in Karma that he is going to suffer after his death. So from his past good deeds, let him enjoy in this life. But the Sanyasi is already free from all Karma and very close to coming back to me. I do not want him to get attached to that cow and enter again in the cycle of birth and death”.
