Krishna blesses the fruit vendor

posted in: English 0

Once a woman selling fruit in Vrndavana called out, “O inhabitants of Vrajabhumi, if you want to purchase some fruit, come here!”

Upon hearing this, Krsna immediately took some grains and went to barter as if He needed some fruit.

While Krsna hastily went toward the fruit vendor, most of the grains He was holding fell.
Nonetheless, the fruit vendor filled Krsna’s hands with fruit, and her basket was immediately filled with jewels and gold.

Krsna is so kind that if anyone offers Him a leaf, a fruit, a flower, or some water, He will immediately accept it. The only condition is that these things should be offered with loving devotion.The fruit vendor, although a woman belonging to the lower class, dealt with Krsna with great affection, saying “krsna, You have come to me to take some fruit in exchange for grains. All the grains have fallen, but still You may take whatever You like.”

Thus she filled Krsna’s palms with whatever fruit He could carry. In exchange, Krsna filled her whole basket with jewels and gold.

From this incident one should learn that when something is offered to Krsna with love and affection, krsna will reciprocate many millions of times over, both materially and spiritually.
