Once, there was a pride rises in Narada's mind that he is the biggest devotee of Lord Vishnu. They started thinking, 'I sing Lord Vishnu's glory night and day. Then who can be a bigger devotee than me in this world? But I do not know whether Srihari also understands me like this or not? '
Considering this, Narada reached to Lord Vishnu at Kshirsagar and bowed to him.
"Come Narada!" Vishnu said, "Tell me how did you come?"
"I've come to ask you one thing, Lord." Narada said.
"I know your mind, Narada. Still want to hear from your mouth. " Vishnu said.
O, God! I have been praising you throughout my life, every moment, I only meditate you. Tell me if you have any other devotee bigger than me in the world? " Narada asked.
Vishnu had already understood that Narada has developed pride on his devotion, but hiding his mind, he said, "Narada! For this question you will have to go with me to earth. "
"I'm ready, Lord." Both started walking toward the earth.
Upon reaching the earth, both of them took the disguise of the farmer and walked towards a hut built on the side of a village. Vishnu said, "Narada! A great devotee of mine lives here in this hut. "
"Wonder, can anyone have more devotion than me." Narada exclaimed, "Does he, like me, ? Does he keep your's form meditation in own mind anytime ?"
"Come, you will know yourself." Vishnu said and headed towards that hut.
The farmer was tying his cow outside the hut at that time. The voice of 'Hari, Hari Govind' was coming out of his mouth. Farmer's form Vishnu went near him and said 'Narayan-Narayan', the farmer asked in a polite voice, "Where have you come from, Bhadra(Gentleman). Please tell without hesitation if you have any service for me. "
"We are going to the city, but darkness has begun to come." There is a fear of wild animals in the forest. That's why we want an overnight shelter. "
"Welcome to my hut, Bhadra(Gentleman) and whatever some little amount of food, is present for you." God has given me an opportunity to serve you people, it is a great blessing. " The farmer said happily.
Putting the two out on a cot in the hallway, the farmer went inside and said to his wife, "Goddess! Two guests have arrived. "
The farmer's wife was serving food to her children at that time. Gently showing the pot of flour, she said, "There is no much flour in the house, and these children are asking for more food."
No problem. We will provide the guests with a full meal. ” The farmer said, " Today you make kanji drink for childrens ."
Narada and Narayana heard the whole conversation of the both of them, yet sat eat of food for test. When the two were ate full of food, Narada thought, 'How can this simple householder be the biggest devotee of God?
On the other hand, Shrihari "'asked the farmer to fetch more food. He said," My stomach is not full yet. Will I get more food? "
The farmer went to the kitchen and asked the wife, "Is there any other food left?"
"Made kanji for children, that's all that's left." Wife said.
Vishnu and Narada also drank that Kanji. The farmer and his family had to sleep hungry. Hungry children held the mother's hand and said, "Mother, I am not sleepy." I am very hungry, why did the father also give kanji to those guests? "
"Offering food to the guest is like offering food to Lord Vishnu himself, son!" The father said while turning his hand on the child's head.
In the hallway outside, both the guests were lying on separate beds. Lord Vishnu said, "Narada You heard ! The farmer and his family did not get food, yet he is singing my glories. "
"This is nothing." I have remembered you after being hungry for many days. " Narada said.
They saw it the next morning. The farmer was saying in front of the idol of Lord Vishnu, "Govind Hari-Hari. You always stay in my heart, just, I don't want anything else. " Then he said to both the guests, "Hari has a great grace. He is the keeper of the world. Is there any trouble at night due to the mercy of God? Both of you stay here for as long as you want. I'm going to the farm. "
"We will also go with you, if you do not mind." Shri Hari said.
Narada and lord Vishnu went with farmer to his farm. The farmer said, "This is my farm. Now I will do my work… Govind Hari-Hari. ”
"You are a true man. You are a great devotee of God, you keep taking his name every moment. " Narada said.
"Oh no?" Whenever I get a little time from work, then I remember his name. ” The farmer said.
"When will you get time?" Narada asked.
“I wake up in the morning. I sleep at night then and during the day whenever I get time from work. " The farmer told.
"Ah I see." Got out of Narada's mouth.
When both of them walked away from the farmer, Narada said in a sarcastic voice, " God you heard . He remembers you two or four times a day in the morning while I always meditate on you. Still you call him a great devotee. "
Srihari remained silent, but in his heart he said, 'You will know the reason too, Narada.'
Vishnu filled a vase filled with oil to Narada and said, "Narada! Put it on your head and bring it to the front hill without putting your hand. Remember, not a single drop of oil kept in this Kalash(vase) should fall on the ground. ”
"This task is not easy, however, if you are pleased, nothing is impossible." Narada said and placed the urn on the head.
'Oops! If a little attention is paid then the oil will spill out. ”Thinking Narada walked towards the hill, raising the urn on his head.
Narada went up to the hill and returned. Vishnu said, "Narada has returned! Okay, now tell me how many times have you remembered me in going so far and coming? "
"Not even once, Lord." Narada said, "How do I do? All my attention was towards oil and urn. "
"Think of yourself then." Srihari said, “That farmer works hard all day. Still, he remember me two or four times, and you could not remember me even once. "
Narada's knowledge eye opened. Falling at Srihari's feet, he said, "O Lord! Those who remember you even while living in the mess of the world are the biggest devotees. "

The results of karma is very peculiar. Sometimes, by virtue of the grace of God, when the sin & virtues move in parallel, then the condition of life also gets pulled in a different direction. But where the burden of sinful deeds is on the mind, then the human does not get peace anywhere and he moves moves here & there, but the sins keep him disturbed. If the virtues pulled him towards the good path, then the sins lead him to the wrong way. It can also be seen as something like the struggle of the sea churning of Devas and Asuras in which fourteen gems appear. Likewise, there is upheaval in our mind like churning of the sea. Our thoughts, which are full by the effects of the acts of natural previous births, spontaneously drag us into the present birth towards good deeds or sin deeds. In this context, while giving the Gita knowledge in the Mahabharata war, Lord Shri Krishna says that Arjuna, you do not want to fight, yet you will be bound to fight by the flow of inspired virtues and rituals of your birth.
In this context, the amazing truth of life is hidden. Thousands elephants's power is in this mind, which can distract the ordinary -extraordinary man and bring him from anywhere.
Now see Ashwatthama, the warrior of Mahabharata. He is one of the seven Sanjeevan Devas who are worshiped in the morning with a mantra for long life. That Ashwatthama is immortal but due to curse and his sin, he wanders on the restless earth with his wounds.
Ashwatthama was born to Drona, the son of the sage Bharadwaja. His mother was Kripi, the daughter of sage Shardwan. Dronacharya's gotra was Angira. Brahmin Drona married Kripi to get children by orders of ancestors. Kripi was also very religious, simple and virtuous. Both were from poor family. As soon as he was born, Ashwatthama uttered a loud word like horse's voice which resonated in all directions and sky. Then Akashvani said that the name of this special child will be Ashwatthama.
Fear of Ashwatthama in the Mahabharata war: When the army of demons led a terrible attack under the leadership of Ghatotkacha all the Kaurava heroes fled. Then Ashwatthama stood there alone. He killed Anjanaparva, the son of Ghatotkacha. He also killed an Akshohini army of Pandavas and wounded Ghatotkacha.
Ashwatthama was the Maharathi of the Kaurava army. Kururaj organized the eleven Akshohini army of his side under the command of eleven commander . Ashwatthama holds a prominent position among the eleven commanders.
Here in the war, Arjuna, Krishna, Yudhishthira, Bhima, Nakula, Sahadeva, Drupada, Dhrishtadumra and Ghatotkacha etc. were fighting. In spite of him, Ashwatthama killed 90 sons of Kuntibhoj, heroes like Balanik, Shataniq, Jayashva, Shrutahya, Hemmali, Parshvdhra and Chandrasen were killed in the battle and drove away Yudhishthira's army. Fear and terror spread in the Pandava's side in view of this demolition by Ashwatthama. Now it was very important to stop Ashwatthama. Everyone was considering it otherwise the defeat was certain the next day.
Ashwatthama elephant killed : Drona is made new commander at the behest of Karna in the battle of the tenth day after Bhishma lying on arrow's bed. Duryodhana and Shakuni tell Drona that if he take Yudhishthira captive, the war will end automatically. When at the end of the day, Drona proceeds to defeating Yudhishthira in battle and to arrest him , then that Arjuna comes and stops him with his arrow's rain. Nakula was with Yudhishthira and Arjuna also returned to Yudhishthira. Thus the Kauravas could not capture Yudhishthira.
But with the increasing destructive power of Drona, panic spreads in the Pandavas' camp. The father and son together ensured the defeat of the Pandavas in the Mahabharata war. Seeing the defeat of the Pandavas, Shri Krishna asked Yudhishthira to resort to deceit. Under this plan, in the war it was spread that 'Ashwatthama was killed' but Yudhishthira was not ready to lie. Then the elephant of a king named Avantiraja, whose name was Ashwatthama, was slaughtered by Bhima. After this, in the war it was spread that 'Ashwatthama was killed.'
When Guru Dronacharya asked Dharmaraja Yudhishthira to know the truth of Ashwatthama, he replied, "Ashwatthama is killed but an elephant."
At the same time Shri Krishna performed the Sankhnaad, due to which the noise of Guru Dronacharya could not hear the last word 'elephant' and he understood that my son was killed. Hearing this, he gave up his arms and closed his eyes in the battlefield and sank into mourning. This was the occasion when Draupadi's brother Dhrishtadumara, knowing Dronacharya was unarmed, beheaded him with a sword. This news was horribly tragic for Ashwatthama. After the deceitful murder of the father, Ashwatthama laid down all the rules of war.
Use of Brahmshirastra on the 18th day of Mahabharata: On the eighteenth day three warriors of the Kauravas are left - Ashwatthama, Kripacharya and Kritavarma. On this day, Ashwatthama vowed to kill the Pandavas, but he did not understand how to kill the Pandavas. Ashwatthama was thinking this only when an owl attacked the crows at night, the owl kills them all. Seeing this incident, Ashwatthama had the same idea in his mind, and with the help of Kripacharya and Kritavarma, in the dark night, he reached the Pandavas' camp and beheaded the 5 sons of the sleeping Pandavas as Pandavas. When Dhritishdumra wakes up from this incident, Ashwatthama kills him too.
Everyone condemns this misdeed of Ashwatthama. Unhappy with the murder of her sons, Draupadi starts mourning. Hearing his lamentation, Arjuna vowed to cut Ashwatthama's head. Hearing Arjuna's pledge, Ashwatthama escaped, then Arjuna followed him by making Shri Krishna a charioteer and taking his Gandiva-bow. Ashwatthama did not get protection anywhere, due to fear, he used Brahmashirastra on Arjuna. Arjuna also had to use Brahmashirastra under compulsion. At the prayer of the sages, Arjuna withdrew his weapon but Ashwatthama turned his brahmashirastra towards Abhimanyu's widow Uttara's womb. Krishna saves Uttara's womb with his power.
Finally Shri Krishna said, "O Arjuna! Dharmatma, sleeping, inattentive, drunk, mad, ignorant, chariotless, women and child killing is forbidden according to dharma. He has behaved against dharma, killing sleeping innocent children. If he alive, he will commit sin again, so immediately fulfill your vow by killing him and placing his severed head in front of Draupadi. "
Even after hearing these words of Shri Krishna, Arjuna took pity on his guru son and took Ashwatthama alive in the camp and put him in front of Draupadi. Draupadi, looking at the tied Guru's son like an animal, said, "O Aryaputra, this is the Guru's son. You have gained knowledge of these unique weapons from his father. Acharya Drona is standing in front of you as a son. By killing him, his mother Krupi would be just like me and mourn the son in mourning. She did not sati with Dronacharya because of her special attachment to the son. Kripi's soul will constantly curse me. My dead sons cannot come back after killing him, then you should free him. "Hearing these religious utterances of Draupadi, everyone praised her. To this, Shri Krishna said, "O Arjuna! According to the scriptures, it is a sin not to punish the sinner, so do what is right. "
Realizing his point, Arjuna cut Ashwatthama's head hair with his sword and took out the gem of his forehead. Once Mani came out, he became powerless. Later Shri Krishna cursed Ashwatthama to wander for 3 thousand years. Finally Arjuna expels him from the camp in the same humiliated state. Ashwatthama was the son of Dronacharya. Dronacharya pleased Shiva with his penance and got a son named Ashwatthama .
Ashwatthama had many powers given to him by Shiva. He was incaration of Shiva himself. Since birth, Ashwatthama had a priceless gem on his forehead which kept him fearless from the demons, monster, weapons, disease, deity, serpent etc. Due to this gem, no weapon could be affected. While giving life to Ashwatthama, Draupadi suggested Arjuna to take off his gem. Therefore, Arjuna took his gem and gave him life. Arjuna gave this gem to Draupadi whom Draupadi gave to Yudhishthira.
According to Shiva Mahapuran (Shatrudrasamhita-37) Ashwatthama is still alive and he resides on the banks of the Ganges but it is not stated where his residence is.

Who was Pondrak, why did Shreekrishna kill him.
In the scriptures and mythological texts of our Sanatan Dharma, various incarnations of God are found, in the present era, or in the era of Lord Krishna, i.e., in the Dwapar Yuga, an interesting description of a fake incarnation is found in the dasham skandha of the Srimad Bhagavat Granth.
The story of this fake avatar of Dwapar yuga gives us a very important lesson which is very relevant in today's Kali Yuga. But first we go towards the story. It is about the time of Dwapar yuga when Lord Krishna was as Dwarkadhish and in a vast area of the sea, he built his very beautiful Dwarka city . At the same time, King Pondrak of Karush desha once sent his messenger to Lord Krishna and said, 'I am Lord Vasudev, the real incarnation of God , no one else.'
When the envoy of Pondrak came to the assembly , Lord Krishna was sitting in Dwarka's assembly with his members . The messenger appeared and told his king Pondrak's message in front of everyone, "I am the only Vasudeva, there is no one else.
I have taken an avatar for grace the creatures of the world. You have falsely named your name Vasudev, now leave it. Yaduvanshi Veer! You are foolishly wearing my sign. Leave them and come to my shelter and if you do not agree, fight with me. " At that time, listening to the message of King Pondrak, who claimed to be the incarnation of the real God, all the members including Ugrasen started laughing.
Shri Krishna also smilingly said to Pondrak's messenger, "Go and tell your king that it will be decided in the war, who is the real Vasudeva?" And yes to tell him to abandon foolishness and take the shelter of knowledge, otherwise I will not remove my chakras and other symbol . I will leave them to him and not only to him, but also to all his friends, by whom he is being misled like this. "
King Pondrak was living in Kashi at that time with his friend Kashiraj. After the answer given by Krishna to Pondrak's messenger, there was a war between them. The armies on both sides came into the ground, the king of Kashi with his huge army was behind Pondrak's army.
At that time, Pondrak had put on his body signs of conch, chakra, mace, sword, Sharang dhanusha( bow) and shrivats made of divine science and technology. Artificial Kaustubhamani (who was also giving the impression of artificial divinity) and Vanamala were hanging on the chest. He was wearing silky yellow clothes (like Lord Vishnu) and also put a Garuda symbol on the flag of the chariot.
He was wearing a priceless crown on his head, which was giving an absolutely amazing aura and the earlobes of his ears were shining, that fake Krishna kept his costume completely divine (but artificially). It seemed as if some other place (planet) creature had come to the earth.
For a moment, Lord Shri Krishna challenged him and start loudly laughing ,when looked at that fake avatar , who announced real Vashudeva himself . Krishna's laughter not liked by Pondrak.
After this Pondrak attacked on Lord Krishna with Trishul, mace and other weapons. Lord Krishna destroyed the elephants, chariots and horses of the army of Pondrak and Kashiraj in a moment. After this, Lord Krishna severed the head of that fake avatar by striking his Sudarshan Chakra.
Thousands of years before Pondrak, Hiranyakashipu also introduced himself as God, he was reprimanded his son Prahlada for not to worshiping any god as none other than me. That demon made a miserable attempt to inflict inhuman tortures on his own son Bhaktaraja Prahlada, in allegation of devotion to God.

'Annadan has special importance in life'
A person who performs Anandan daily receives all the auspicious results of the world. According to your ability and convenience, you should give some food. This leads to ultimate well-being. In particular, donation of food is an honor factor in life. Therefore, food should be donated to the needy. By donating food, all sins are replenished and there is happiness in this world and hereafter.
A legend related to this is also found in Padmapuran. Once a conversation is happening between Brahma ji, the creator of the universe and Shweta, the king of Vidarbha. This dialogue shows that whatever a person donates in his living state, after death he gets the same thing in the hereafter. King Shweta reaches Brahmaloka on the strength of his harsh austerity, but never receives food there during his lifetime due to not donating food.
‘नादत्तं कस्योपतिष्ठते’ That is, what will one get without giving. The more you sow, the more you will get. In the Anushashanparva of Mahabharata, it is said that due to which works of previous birth, auspicious or inauspicious results are obtained.
Donate to whom?
We can understand this very well with an example, if a person has the ability to donate fifty rupees, then he should donate only fifty rupees. Donating ten rupees or hundred rupees in place of fifty is not a donation but a sin. Donation work should be done with a pure and happy mind.
Similarly, if a poor beggar who lives in torn clothes, if given a new cloth to wear, thats coth will not like by him, he will not be able to wear that cloth either he will sell it or throw it away; so he will be like only torn cloth. Feeding food to a full stomach does not make any bless in his mind, but if a poor person with a hungry stomach is fed with food, then he will be fully satisfied and will give prayers from his heart. Donation can be of any thing, not just food. Medicine for the patient, education for the uneducated, food for the hungry, clothing for the naked, it means that if someone who lacks and is unable to get it, then also arrange for such a thing to the people , falls in the category of donation . Therefore, while giving donations, special attention should be given that donations should be given to the appropriate person.
We have been doing this activity by the ancestors of all of us (grandmother, mother etc.). It is considered our ultimate duty to offer food to Brahmins, Pandits, Pujaris etc. on any festival, date, special (Amavasya, Purnima, Ekadashi etc.). According to our scriptures, donations made in this way are necessary and good. We have seen this practice in all places around us.
Donation should not be done with gratitude to anyone because it depends on our willingness and devotion and the person's aim is to reduce his sufferings, sorrows, impunity etc. while giving donations. Donations are also made for the peace of evil planets and for the relief of various kinds of suffering. By donating some part of your income, there is definitely self-purification and wealth growth. It is absolutely true that donations are made for their own welfare. Donation removes poverty, even improves until the next birth. Donation never reduces because any kind of donation never goes empty, but it gets its results till the next birth. Donation is also a measure of the aggregation of virtuous deeds and repentance of inauspicious deeds done by oneself.
There is no worship and ritual in Hinduism, better than feeding a hungry one. Annadana is a Mahadana - or the largest donation in Hinduism and is an essential part of the Sanatan Dharma tradition. Food donation is not limited to feeding a human being, but it includes all living beings. There are many stories in praise of Annadan, the glory of the Hindu scriptures - the main Goddess Parvati appearing as Goddess Annapurneshwari and feeding Shiva.
Therefore, it is clear that food is the main basis of life. Rather food is life. Therefore, food is equal to life. In the scriptures, food is considered to be the best and effulgent virtue. It is a major part of dharma. Any chanting without donations; Tenacity; The yajna etc. is not complete, the person who performs Anandan daily; That river; Receives the fruits of the donation of the entire earth, including mountains and forests. If someone is mentioned in the Mahabharata period as the bravest, the most worthy, the most abandoned and the biggest donor, then he is Karna. As is well known that Karna was the son of Rajmata Kunti and Lord Suryadev and was get flow in the water due to at that time Kunti was not married till then. While flowing in water, Karna met a Sut(slave) and he was brought up by him. Karna later became Duryodhana's first choice and supreme friend due to his valor and also got throne. From childhood to becoming king, Karna always had two characteristics with him, his valor and his charity. Karna's charity was discussed because the petitioner who came to his door had never returned empty handed. Karna had donated gold, silver, diamonds, pearls, etc. throughout his life, but he had never donated food. Being unfamiliar with his past, he said that nobody had even fed food in the name of his ancestors. The same thing went opposite Karna.
