|Caption||The demigod Cupid took another birth as the son of Krishna and Rukmini, and was named Pradyumna. Because he was begotten by Lord Krishna directly, his qualities were very similar to those of Krishna.|
There was a demon named Sambara who was destined to be killed by this Pradyumna. Sambara was aware of this, so when Pradyumna was born, Sambara kidnapped the baby less than ten days after his birth. The demon Sambara took him and threw him into the sea. When the baby Pradyumna was thrown into the sea, he was immediately eaten by a big fish. This very fish was caught by the net of a fisherman and sold to Sambara. In the kitchen of Sambara there was a maidservant named Mayavati. Mayavati had formerly been the wife of Cupid. When the cook cut open the fish, he found the baby inside and he gave the baby to Mayavati . She was perplexed how the baby could have remained within the belly of the fish unharmed. But at that time, the sage Narada Muni arrived and explained to Mayavati the whole situation.
