KRISHNA'S love to his devotees

            One day Krishna was playing in the courtyard with Balarama and others. He heard the voice of a woman in the street crying out, “Fruits! Jambu fruits!” Jambu fruits!” Immediately Krishna wanted to buy some of them. But he had no money. His eager eyes noticed, however, a huge heap of grains stocked nearby. He collected a handful of grains in his tiny fists and ran to the street. On the way most of the grains fell down to the ground from his hands.

                He came to the fruit seller and holding out his hands said, ”O dear lady, take these grains and give me fruits in exchange.” The woman was carried away by the beauty and charm of the boy. The tinkling of the anklets of his feet was sweet music to her ears. She was never to forget it in her life. She said, “O my child! You have come to purchase fruits in exchange of grains. All the grains have fallen down on the way, but still you may take whatever quantity of fruits you like.”
                    So saying, she filled his small hands with as much of those fruits as he could hold after he had dropped into her basket the few grains. When the woman went home and looked into her basket she could not believe her eyes. All the grains had turned into jewels and gold. By performing this miracle Krishna showed that anything offered to Krishna with love and affection returns to the devotees increased a thousand fold.
