FILE INFO
CaptionOnce, Maharaja Pariksit, while engaged in hunting in the forest, became extremely fatigued. He was searching for a reservoir of water and he came upon the hermitage of the sage Samika Rshi. Samika Rshi was sitting silently with closed eyes. His senses, mind and breath were all restrained from material activities. King Pariksit, approached him and asked him for water, but the sage said nothing. The King was not received with any welcome or a place to sit or water. Considering himself neglected, he became angry. While leaving, he saw a lifeless snake and picked it up with his bow and placed it on the shoulders of Samika. Upon returning, King Pariksit began to wonder if the sage had actually been in a trance or if he had done this to avoid serving a kshatriya, a lower rank from that of a brahmana. Because Pariksit was a devotee and a good soul, he did not approve of his action which was uncharacteristic of him. Actually the dead snake was there by the will of the Lord; and the whole situation was arranged by the Lord in order to call his devotee Pariksit back home, back to Godhead.
