Lord Vishnu's maya and Narada
Devarshi Narada gave birth to 50 sons.
Once Narada ji asked Lord Vishnu that "Lord, what is your maya (illusion) that fascinates the whole world. Please tell me the secret of this.
Hearing this, the girl said, "O Bhupathi, I do not have any relative in this world. Now you are my shelter, then King Taladhwaj took her to his palace and married her." After some time, the girl became pregnant and on completion of time she gave birth to a Tumbi ie pumpkin who had 50 divine children. All those children were put into a very large kund(tank) which was filled with ghee. By doing this, those childrens immediately reached the teenagers stages .
Then they too had children and due to the influence of maya their number started to increase and in a few days the number of sons and grandchildren of the queen also increased a lot. Due to the high number, there was a dispute among them about the throne which became so violent that they started fighting among themselves and died. Seeing the destruction of own dynasty in front of their eyes. The king and queen were very sad. Just then a Brahmin comes with his two disciples and meets the sadded King & queen explaining to them that you are all mourning in vain.
All this is maya of Shri Hari Vishnu. The maya of the Lord is such that hundreds, Chakravarti kings and thousands of Indra are destroyed in the same way. As the lamp extinguishes strong wind. Vishnu with the influence of maya, the creatures of the whole world, whether animals or birds or any human, enchantingly sing and cry. Saying so, the Brahmin holds the hand of the queen and says that Narada ji this is maya of Vishnu which was created by Shri Hari himself. Now you have seen the illusion of Vishnu. Now take bath and fulfill your duty by offering tribute to your dead sons.
Saying so, Srihari bathed Narada in the same lake where he became a girl after bathing. After bathing again, he came back to his true form, which the king was surprised to see when Shri Hari Vishnu held Narada's finger back and the next moment Lord and Narada came back to Baikunth Dham. Lord Vishnu came back to Baikunth Dham and said to Lord Narada , Munivar my illusion is very painful. It is about to bond, so that is why I have kept the sage-saints free from it. How did you like my illusion.
