Samba, The Son of Jambavati

Postby bhaktarichard » Monday 21 August 2017, 21:31

Dear Guru Maharaja,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to You and Srila Prabhupada.

SB. 11.1.13-15

"To that holy place, the young boys of the Yadu dynasty had brought Sāmba, son of Jāmbavatī, dressed in woman’s garb. Playfully approaching the great sages gathered there, the boys grabbed hold of the sages’ feet and impudently asked them with feigned humility, “O learned brāhmaṇas, this black-eyed pregnant woman has something to ask you. She is too embarrassed to inquire for herself. She is just about to give birth and is very desirous of having a son. Since all of you are great sages with infallible vision, please tell us whether her child will be a boy or a girl."

Why did the boys of the Yadu dynasty dress Samba in woman's garb when they approached the sages? Thank you.


Your servant
Bhakta Richard
