FILE INFO
CaptionKing Prithu, who was a great devotee of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, was performing one-hundred horse sacrifices. By the proper pronunciation of the vedic mantras chanted during the sacrifice, the sacrificial animals were not killed, but would come out with a new life. Indra became very envious of Prithu, fearing that he would excel him. As Prithu began the last of the one-hundred sacrifices, Indra made himself invisible and stole the horse meant for the sacrifice. Then, he dressed himself in saffron robes to appear as a liberated person. The son of King Prithu went after him, but seeing his dress as a sannyasi, he refrained from shooting him with his arrows, thinking him to be religious man.
-Taken from Srimad Bhagavatam 4.19.2-14
