NANGUNERI

Even Indra would not have the courage to fight with me; I am tolerating your bitter words, as you are God Himself and so I beseech you for salvation." Krishna told him to pray to Lord Siva. The sage did so, still keeping his hands on the boy. To his surprise he found himself in the Milky Ocean, on Sweta Dweepa, with beautiful groves of Kalpaka trees. In this beautiful grove of Kalpaka trees he found Lord Vishnu on the couch and canopy of Adi Sesha. wondering what it was, he began chanting again the sacred names of Lord Siva. Not being able to understand the mystery, he told the boy:

"Till today I could not bear to hear the name of Vishnu. I wanted to follow your advice and I did so. Meditating on Siva, I saw the Milky Ocean, Vishnu with keyuras and kundalas and garland and other beautiful decorations. What does all this mean? Accept me as your disciple and grant me salvation." Immediately he threw away the two bells hanging from his ears and prostrated before the boy. God was pleased and Vishnu in his incarnation as Krishna gave him salvation instantaneously
