|Caption||Once, when Narada Muni was walking on a forest path, he saw a deer, a boar and a rabbit, all of them pierced with arrows and twisting in pain. He strayed from the path and found the hunter,Mgrari, hiding behind a tree, his bow and arrow raised, ready for his next kill. The hunter's body was blackish, and he had reddish eyes. As soon as Narada came closer, all the animals fled.|
Mrgari had been trained from a young age to hunt animals with a bow and arrow, but not kill them completely. He actually felt great pleasure seeing half-killed animals suffer. Narada explained that by consciously causing these animals unnecessary pain, he would incur very great sins. Hearing Narada speak about the error of his activities and the sinful reactions that would come to him in his next life, Mrgari was convinced. He surrendered to Narada Muni saying, "My dear sir, please tell me how I can be relieved of the reactions of my sinful life. Now I fully surrender unto you and fall down at your lotus feet. Please deliver me from sinful reactions."
