The Naive Sages

Without Parvata's knowledge, Narada went to Vaikunta to consult Mahavishnu. He narrated to him all that had happened. He said to Lord Vishnu: "0 Lord, have mercy on me and do me a favor. At the time of the Swayamvara, please make Parvata look like a monkey." The Lord smilingly

Later, it was sage Parvata's turn to approach Lord Vishnu - without Narada's present. He said to Vishnu: "0 Lord, at the time of the Swayamwara, please make Narada look like a bear." Vishnu said to himself, "Aha! Both are naive, and there is little to choose between them!" But he smilingly assured the sage that he would grant his request.

The day of the Swayamwara. Came. Both the sages arrived at the Swayamwara each congratulating himself on their cleverness.
