Teaching Story - The Brahmin
by Life Positive
Lord Krishna, pleased with his prayers,
appeared before him and told him to ask for
any boon. Sage Uttanga told Krishna that he
did not want anything. But on Lord Krishna’s
insistence, he asked that whenever he needed
water (since it was a desert area) and
whenever he felt thirsty, water may be provided
to him. Lord Krishna granted him the
boon and disappeared.
One day, after walking long in the desert, Sage Uttanga felt thirsty. But there was no trace of water. Then he remembered the boon granted by Lord Krishna.
| The only true love is Divine Love. All other types of love are useful only if there is divine love in the heart within.
- Dada Vaswani
Meantime, Krishna appeared, smiled and said, “I had asked Lord Indra to fetch you water. Instead of water, he had actually brought you the nectar of immortality, but on the condition that you would be able to recognise the divinity in all.”
Uttanga understood that he had failed in the test. He was yet to conquer his ego.
