Once there was a drought hit village. There was absolutely no rains
for the past 3-4 years. All the villagers who are solely depending
on Agriculture were almost starving to death. After some time they
all decided to perform a yajna, to get rain.
They all decided to venue & time for the Yajna. And made it compulsory for all the people to attend.
As per the schedule, slowly all the vilalgers started to gather at the
venue. One villager came with an umbrella. Seeing this person, all the
villagers burst into laughter. They all thought that he has become
The Yajna was performed & after taking prasadam, the villagers slowly started to leave the place. To their disbelief, the sky darkened, & in a few moments there was a heavy shower. All the people ran upto the person who was holding the umbrella.
They asked him what made him to carry an Umbrella . He simply replied “FAITH”. He said we are performing a puja to Krishna for rain. He said he had firm faith in the Lord’s mercy.
Moral of the story:
The Crux of this story is that if we have faith on the Lord &
surrender to him, he will take care of the rest.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead promises in the Ninth chapter of Bagavad Gita, that his devotee does not perishes.
The Lord in the 18 chapter says:
sarva dharman parityajya
mam ekam saranam vraja
aham tvam sarva papebhyo
moksya samy ma sucah
If there is such a guarantee from the Supreme Personality of God
himself, we should take to the process of Surrender immediately with
full faith & without any delay
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.
