AMBAJI
The Renowned Sakti Peetha of Gujarat 

THE COWHERD'S EPISODE

At a distance of 5 kms. from the temple, there is a hill by name Gabbar. It is believed that its inner chamber is frequented by Ambaji for rest and recreation. There she sits on a swing and enjoys listening to songs. Once a cowherd boy .entered all on a sudden and asked wages for tending her cow along with his own. He said that as it got mixed up with his cows unnoticed, and tended it for days. Out of compassion for the innocent boy, she gave barley instead of coins. Disappointed urchin threw them away in utter despair on coming out of the portal. When he leisurely examined one of them that got stuck up to the cloth into which he received, he realized that they were made of gold. Anon he ran to collect those scattered but could find none, nor even that Supreme Goddess who gave him. Although he was disappointed twice, it brings out the MOTHER'S boundless mercy for her children.
