PARASHURAMA

The Surprised King

The sages perform penance for securing welfare to the world. Not only the people on earth but those in heaven also assist them in their task. Indra, the Lord of Heaven, had sent the divine cow-Kamadhenu-for assisting Jamadagni who was in penance at the time.

Kamadhenu was a wish fulfilling divine cow. The king of the land had been visiting the hermitage and he had to be treated with a reception fitting the majesty of royalty. The sage requested the divine cow to oblige him by helping to arrange for a sumptuous lunch. Soon, the ceremonial lunch was ready. The sage treated the guests to a royal feast and all felt happy and contented.

"What a wonderful feast! I had never tasted such fine meals even at the palace. And it is practically impossible to prepare such a festive meal at such a short notice even at the palace. How did you arrange this?" the king queried in surprise.

"O king! This is the grace of Kamadhenu. Lord Indra has sent this sacred cow to assist me. The cow can bestow any favour instantly. All these are her blessings."
