Stories about, Sri Krishna – Krishna And The Pot Of Butter.
A buttery delight.
Krishna was very curious during his days and like all small boys, he was naughty. There was great joy in the heart of Yashoda because it was Krishna’s Birthday.
Yasodha: Son, It’s your birthday today. Go and bring a female calf here, and worship her.
Krishna became so happy. He went out and chose a very beautiful shecalf, who was as white as a swan. Krishna wanted to catch her, but He couldn’t, because she was jumping a lot. After a great struggle, He managed to hold her, and then He wanted to bring her into the courtyard. He suddenly noticed a pot hanging from a rope. He immediately understood that this pot was full of sweet butter. But how could He reach the butter? It was hanging high up in the rafters, and there was no ladder, or anything to stand on. What to do? After considering carefully,
Krishna: I can reach the butter very easily if I stand on this calf.
He managed to climb up on the calf’s back, and when He stood upright, He was high enough to put His hand into the pot. However, just at that moment, the calf suddenly jumped away. He was left dangling there.
Krishna: Mother! Mother! Mother! Please help me. Mother! Mother! Mother! Please help me, Mother! Mother! Please help me Get me down. Mother! Mother! Mother! Mother! Mother! Please get me down! Mother! Mother! Mother! Mother! Please get me down! Mother! Mother! Mother! Mother! Please get me down
As soon as she saw Him hanging high above the ground, she understood what had happened.
Yashoda: You stay like that! I’m not going to touch you. And I’ll punish you for being naughty, as well. I’ll never help You!
Krishna: Mother! Mother! Please!
Who could bear to see Krishna in tears! Mother Yasoda brought Him down. Krishna was extremely naughty in His childhood, but his beautiful face, his innocent eyes, and his sweet smile always made Mother Yashoda embrace him.
