Bhimasena, greatly puzzled, but full of faith in Sri Krishna, hastened to
the river where Durvasa and his followers were bathing.
They were in great surprise to find that their ravenous hunger had
given place to a pleased satiety. They had all the comfor- table cheerfulness of people
who had feasted well.
The disciples told the sage: "We have come here after asking
Yudhishthira to prepare food for us, but we feel well-fed and full and cannot eat anything
Durvasa knew what it was and he told Bhima: "We have taken our
meals. Tell Yudhishthira to forgive us." Then the party went away.
The explanation is that as the whole universe is contained in Sri
Krishna, his satisfaction with a single grain of rice satisfied for the time the hunger of
all beings including the sage.
