TRYAMBAKESHVAR - TRYAMBAK

Some were walking fast preserving their strength for the final sprint, others had started on the doubles right from the beginning. The scene was most queer; kings, princes, gods, and sages trying to out run each-other ! One of the competitors was a sage named Gautama. He was not very good at this kind of exercise although he was well known for his yogic and spiritual attainments and after an initial burst of energy his steps slowed down considerably. He lagged behind the rest but had not lost all hopes. So he kept on moving. Now it sohappened that while trodding his way in this manner he saw a cow giving birth to a calf.

The cow was a ‘kapila’ -of black colour. Gautama immediately hastened to the spot and circumambulated the cow thrice. He then started back towards Brahmadeva and his time he was doing it real fast. Brahmadeva saw the age approach him, panting and puffing, but rather curiously from the direction opposite to the one from which he was expected ! He felt sorry for the man. It was obvious that he learned fellow had dropped out of the race. But no, Gautama loudly declared that he had won the race, he had circled the earth. How could it be? Brahmadeva could not believe his own ears, he shook his head in utter disbelief. Gautama stated again, this time in a louder and clearer tone for the benefit of Brahma that he had won the race.
