|Caption||After giving up the body of a deer, Bharata took birth in a brahmana family. By the Lord's mercy, Bharata could remember his past lives and in order to avoid fall-down, he acted like a madman while internally he remained always thinking of the lotus feet of the Lord. Most everyone thought he was dull and dumb.|
One day King Rahugana needed a carrier for his palanquin and his chief carrier found Jada Bharata. He was forced to carry the palanquin. While carrying the King in his palanquin, Jada Bharata was very careful not to step on any ants, so he kept stopping to let them by. Because of this, the palanquin was shaking, and the king began to criticize him sarcastically. When the shaking still did not stop King Rahugana got very angry.
Painted in 1997.
