MAHANANDI

In course of time, it was noticed that the cow was absenting itself for long periods of time in the Forest, and that its milk supply also tended to decrease considerably. One day the cowherd followed the cow to the forest to find out why the milk supply was diminishing. He found the cow grazing round an anthill and, after some time, it stood right over it. The milk was flowing into the anthill and, at last the form of a young child in the form of Lord Krishna peeped out of the ant-hill and gave Darshan to the cow, after which the cow returned to the cowherd. The news was carried to the king and the king guessed correctly that the child was the Lord himself who had come to test his faith. The next day the king also followed the cow and, hiding himself in a dense bush was lying there deep in meditation, and expecting to have a glimpse of the Lord. The cow arrived and circled round the ant-hill, being wrapped in devotion to the Lord. The Lord in the form of child appeared and accepted the offering of the milk from the cow.
