Abhimanyu chased away

posted in: English 0


On one occasion Abhimanyu went to the market to buy some cows. He selected nice cows and in the afternoon he came back to take some coins to purchase the cows.

Meanwhile by His arrangements, Krishna spread a rumor in Yavat that “Krishna is coming in the disguise of Abhimanyu to see Srimati Radharani.”

When Jatila[1] and Kutila[2] heard this they stood at the gateway of the village with sticks. They were determined that Krishna was not even going to have a moment glance upon Srimati Radharani.

So Abhimanyu came at home not expecting anything. As soon as Abhimanyu arrived, Jatila, Kutila started screaming at him

“Get out of here, we know that who you are, we know that you are Krishna in disguise. Get away from here or we will beat you with these sticks. Get out, get out, get out!” 

As they were saying the whole village of Javat was in an uproar, 

“Get out of here, Get out of here,”

Abhimanyu didn’t know what in the world was happening. So he tried to explain

“I just came back to get some money for the cows to buy.”

They said,

“Get out, get out we know your tricks. We know your cunningness, Krishna, get out of here now.”

Afraid of the sticks, Abhimanyu ran away.


Meanwhile from another direction Lord Sri Krishna came perfectly disguised as Abhimanyu. When Jatila and Kutila saw Him their hearts were overwhelmed with parental affection. They embraced Krishna.

They said,

“Oh! Abhimanyu, we are so happy to see you. You know? Krishna just came and He was disguised as you, but we drove Him out of this village. Now Radharani is waiting for you.”

Krishna said,

“It is an auspicious day for Radharani to perform the Puja to goddess Mangaladevi. She should fast today and She should go to the temple and She should worship throughout the day and throughout the night.”

Jatila said,

“All right that is very good. Whatever pleases you, my son.”

So she sent Srimati Radharani to the Mangaladevi temple to do Her prayers throughout the day and the night.


When She arrived at that temple, Lalita, Visaka, the Gopis and Krishna appeared there to the delight of Sri Radhika and they performed Rasa Lila throughout the night.
