God Really And Visibly Takes Care Of His Believers – Story From Hindu Religion

God Really And Visibly Takes Care Of His Believers – this story from Hindu Religion is based on Bhagavan Sri Krishna and it clearly shows that god really and visibly takes care of his believers.

There are many stories that illustrate that love of God for His devotees, whom He considers His own. These stories we find in the Puranas and other scriptures. One of the most beautiful of the stories is the story of a little boy to whom God appeared in human form, because he had a very devoted mother.

There was a little boy and his mother was a great devotee. She always worshipped Krishna. But she was very poor. She lived with her little son, far from the village, and she could barely manage to make both ends meet. When the boy was old enough his mother send him to school. Every morning the little fellow would pick up his slate and his mat to sit on, and would set out for school. But the distance was considerable and the path led through a thick forest. The boy did not like to go through the forest all alone. He was frightened. He often heard strange noises and in some places the forest was dark with heavy foliage. And so he told his mother of his fear.

Now the mother could not possibly go with him, and she did not want the boy to lose his schooling. So she told him, ‘When you enter the forest call for Brother Krishna. Then you will not be afraid.’ When the boy went to school the next day, he became frightened again seeing some animal move in the brush. He remembered what his mother had told him and he called out, ‘Brother Krishna, Brother Krishna, come quick, there is an animal and I do not know what it is.’ And there, from behind a tree stepped out Brother Krishna, a beautiful boy, strong and healthy and a head taller than the frightened boy. Seeing Brother Krishna our little friend was very happy and felt quite sure that his big brother would be able to kill all the animals in the forest, so big and strong he looked.

The boys walked through the forest together, talking and playing as they went along. But at the end of the forest brother Krishna said, ‘Now I must go back, but I will come whenever you call Me.’ Those were happy days for the little boy. Every day going to school and returning through the forest he would call, ‘Brother Krishna, come and play with me.’ And Brother Krishna would come and they would be happy together. Now it happened that the teacher’s birthday was approaching and all the boys were going to be treated and they were going to have a most glorious time; for the guru was a good and kind teacher and he loved to see his pupils happy. All the boys were going to bring a present that day for the teacher, some nice fruit, or a new turban, or a dhoti, each according to his means. And so, on coming home, our little fellow told his mother all about it and then asked her what present he was going to take to the teacher. The mother did not know what to answer. What could she give, poor woman that she was, with scarcely food enough to keep her boy and herself alive? She thought and thought, but there was nothing worth giving. At last she said, ‘Well, my son, we are very poor. You must tell the teacher that you feel very sorry but that you are a very poor boy and that your mother could not give you anything to present to the teacher.’

The little fellow was very sorry for he loved his teacher, and also because he thought what will the other boys say when I go empty-handed? The next day when he went to school, instead of being very happy like the other boys at the prospect of a great feast and holiday, the boy was thoroughly miserable and ashamed. And when he called Brother Krishna there were tears in his eyes. Now Brother Krishna knew what was troubling the lad, so he had made provision for the occasion and when he appeared that morning he brought with him a small pitcher of milk. ‘Well, little brother,’ He said, ‘why are you weeping? I brought you a little present for your teacher. And you will see that he will be very happy to have it.’ Now the boy was satisfied. It was not much to give, but it was far better than nothing. He was smiling and happy when he reached the school and offered his little present.

The teacher knew that the boy was very poor, so he appreciated the little gift and thanked the boy very kindly. He took the pitcher and emptied the milk. But what was his surprise when the milk kept on running!

One basin after another was filled, but still the milk ran from the little pitcher until every pot and can that could be found was filled with milk. That was a great surprise. Delicious dishes and sweetmeats were prepared from the milk and there was great rejoicing. Then the teacher asked the boy where he got the milk. And the boy told him that Brother Krishna had given it to him that morning.

Imagine the joy of the mother when her little son related to her what had happened. Krishna had done all this. And these are not just stories. Many devotees can testify to the fact that God really and visibly takes care of them. With our materialistic education and training such things seem utterly impossible and incredible. Our belief and faith is so weak that we cannot believe and accept as true anything that goes even slightly different from our day-to-day experience. But bhaktas feel quite satisfied that Bhagavan is all-powerful and that He hears the prayers of His devotees. Nay, even without their prayer Bhagavan cares and provides for them.
