Krishna Nectar Lila 42 – “The Perfect Antidote”

Mahanidhi Madan Gopal Das
The cowherd boys appeared like they had just left the jaws of death. They felt completely relieved and happy to see the tender lotus face of the peaceful prince of Vraja, which looked more attractive than the rising sun. The transcendental deeds of the Lord completely eclipsed the glories of the sun. One after another the boys embraced Krishna while talking excitedly.
One boy said, “O Krishna! While we played that terrible demon devoured us, and knocked us out with a burning poison. How did You bring us back to life?” Krishna replied, “I am the perfect antidote to neutralize poison and also kill the poison giver. If a man smells this medicine, he will become joyful and relish it like the taste of honey. Even the dead will come back to life and enjoy sweet rasa if they smell this medicine.”
Krishna’s witty remarks increased the cowherd boys’ loving friendship for Him. Then the cowherd boys, the Lord’s eternal associates, enthusiastically embraced each other. Swelling with pride for his beloved friend, one boy said, “I told you before that Krishna would finish this demon, just as He had previously killed Bakasura.
