KRISHNA PROTECTS VAISHNAVAS -STORY
Though one tries to defame or defeat a humble vaishnava, his actions will attack him back in the reverse.
This true incident in the life of Sri Bhakti Vinoda Thakura proves this:
In l874 eighty-thousand rupees from the Jagannatha Temple had been misappropriated by the Raja of Puri for his own enjoyment.
Sri Bhaktivinoda Thakura found out about this nonsense.
Then, he forced the Raja to give Lord Jagannatha bhoga prasada fifty-two times a day.
Raja too started to offer prasada to Jagannatha fifty two times a day.
Because of this the Raja’s money was soon diminished to nothing.
He was extremely angry at this action that Bhaktivinoda took on him.
He wanted to kill the Thakura but he saw that it was not possible to kill him by ordinary means.
Intent on killing Bhaktivinoda somehow, the Raja then began to perform a fire yajna [ritual] with fifty learned panditas.
The yajna was being performed in the inner compartments of his palace so that the public did not find out about this attempt on the life of Bhaktivinoda Thakura.
Still, everyday information was coming to Bhaktivinoda about the measures that the Raja was taking to kill him.
After thirty days of yajnas, when the last oblation of ghee was being poured on the fire, Thakura Bhaktivinoda was to have died at that moment.
Bhakti Vinoda Thakura did not die. Instead, the Raja’s dear and only son died within the palace when the last oblation had been offered.
Do not fight with or defame the vaishnavas. They are protected by Krishna directly. Instead, get their blessings as much as possible.
