LORD KRISHNA’S MERCY (Episode from Mahabharata)
The Mahabharata war was about to begin.
The armies were taking up positions. The
elephants started marching. Deafening
noise of conch shells warned of imminent
danger. The dust raised was so thick as to
eclipse the sun. A lapwing had built her
nest in a hillock close to the Kurukshetra
battlefield. She was staying there with her
nestlings and was concerned for their safety.
She cried wildly and caught the attention
of Lord Krishna. Out of compassion for
the mother bird and her young ones, Lord
Krishna lifted up an elephant bell that he
found nearby and placed it over the bird’s
nest saying: “This will protect you” . So,
during the eighteen days of the terrific war,
the mother-bird and her little ones remained
fully safe. “One who takes refuge at the lotus
feet of the Lord, will be protected by Him.”
Such was the lesson from Mahabharata war.
