FILE INFO
CaptionWhen the nurse of Jambavan's child saw Krishna coming, she immediately thought He might take away the valuable Syamantaka jewel, and she cried out in fear. Jambavan heard her and went there in an angry mood. Seeing Krishna, he challenged Him to fight. Although Jambavan was a devotee of Lord Ramachandra, clouded by his anger he did not recognize Krishna to be the same Supreme Personality of Godhead. There was a great fight between them, which lasted twenty-eight days without stopping. Jambavan was the strongest living entity at that time, so he expected to defeat Krishna. After twenty-eight days, Jambavan had perspiration all over his body and was extremely tired. He realized that the person he was fighting must be the Supreme Lord, Who is the source of all strength and all kinds of opulence. He offered prayers to Lord Krishna, and hearing of the Lord's desire, he gave him the Syamantaka jewel. He then presented his daughter, Jambavati, to be married to Lord Krishna. Krishna returned to Dvaraka with Jambavati and the residents of Dvaraka rejoiced and arranged a great celebration.
