A demon Trinavarta by name, a servant of Kamsa, carried away the child in the form of a whirlwind at the instigation of Kamsa. The whole Gokula was wrapped in dust and darkness for sometime. The demon reached the sky but he was not able to proceed further on account of the heaviness of Krishna. The child gripped his neck tightly and the demon was strangled.

Examine my mouth.” Yasoda said, “Open your mouth, my child!” Sri Krishna opened His mouth. Therein she saw the whole universe of animate and inanimate things, the sky, the cardinal points, the mountains, continents, seas, the whole earth, air, fire, the sun, the moon and the stars, the seven Dvipas, the planets, the Devas, the mind, the senses, the three Gunas and their modifications, the Jiva, Karma and its seeds, even Brindavan and herself. She was amazed, and began to reflect thus, “Is this a dream or a strange vision of God‟s illusion or does my child possess any inborn Yogic powers?” She said, “Salutations to the Lord, I take shelter under Him whose Maya produces the wrong notions—This is Nanda, my husband. This is my son. I am Yasoda. This is mine.” She had the true knowledge, but she lost her memory of the vision by the Yoga Maya of the Lord.

Story No. 8

Krishna had many women disciples, but one favourite, Radha. Each disciple said to herself, "Krishna loves me more than anyone else." Still, because Krishna often talked to Radha, the others were envious of her. Noticing their jealousy, he wanted to teach them a lesson. So one day Krishna feigned a terrible headache. The anxious desciples expressed their great concern over the master's distress.

At last Krishna said, "The headache will go away if one of you will stand on my head and massage it with your feet." The horrified devoteed exclaimed, "We can not do this. You are god, the Lord of the Universe. It would be highest sacrilege to dare to descrete your form by touching your sacred head with our feet."

The master was pretending an increase in his pain when Radha came on the scene. She ran to her Lord, saying, "What can I do for you?" Krishna made the same request of her that he made of the other devotees. Radha immediately stood on his head; the master's "pain" disappeared, and he fell asleep. The other disciples angrily dragged Radha away from the sleeping Lord. "We will kill you" , they threatened.

"But why?"

"You dare to step on the head of the master?"
"What of it?", Radha protested. "Did it not free him from his pain?"
"For such a sacrilegious act you will go to the lowest stratum of hades."
"Oh, is that what you are worrying about?" Radha smiled. "I would gladly live there forever if it would make him happy for a second"
Then they all bowed to Radha. They understood why Krishna favoured her; for Radha alone had no thought for herself, but only for her Lord's comfort.

Story No. 9

One morning, the Krishna and Uddhava went on a walk and they come across a rich man's mansion. Krishna said he was thirsty and asked Uddhava to fetch him some water from the rich man's house. Uddhava went to the house and asked for water. The man of the house invited them in, received them with respect and offered them cool refreshments. Krishna was pleased and, once they went out, he blessed the man with prosperity and even more riches.

They continued on their walk and came across a small hut, with a cow grazing in the background. Krishna again said he is thirsty and asked Uddahava to ask for water. Uddhava was suspicious that Krishna was up to his usual tricks but was reassured by Krishna that there was nothing amiss. Uddhava went and knocked on the door. An old ascetic opened the door and invited them in. When Uddhava told him that his friend is thirsty, the ascetic said regretfully that 'there was nothing in the house to offer' them. The yogi then exclaimed that his one dear possession, the cow, will not let him down. He milked the cow and offered fresh milk to his guests. Krishna gulped it down with enjoyment and thanked him.

They walked out and Krishna's hands moved up in blessing, "May the old yogi's cow die!" A shocked Uddhava found this difficult to comprehend. He questioned Krishna, asking him why the punishment when the yogi offered them the best he could. Krishna laughed and said that his blessings are always true and is based on the need of the individual and not on his 'desire' or 'want'. He went on to explain that the yogi was on the verge of reaching Him but his remaining attachment to his cow prevented him from attaining Mukti, the Ultimate Truth.
