Chapter 16: Verse 142-150



142.Feed at least as many brahmanas as prescribed for the vow, but politely invite more, numberless brahmanas.

143.At the end of the vow give charity of gold, jewels and coral and give daksina to the priest.

144.Speaking these words, Lord Siva intructed her to follow the vow. Parvati followed it with opulence greater than all the others.

145.O brahmana, thus I have told you of Parvati’ vow. The brahmanas were not able to carry away all the jewels they received in charity at Parvati’s vow.

146.Now you have heard everything about this. O Narada, now please hear of Lord Krsna’s childhood pastimes, which are newer and newer at every step.

147.After killing these great demons, Lord Krsna returned with the boys and cows to His own home, which was as opulent as Kuvera’s palace.

148.The boys told everyone what had happened in the forest. Everyone was astonished. Nanda was terrified.

149.Calling together the elder gopas and gopis, Nanda considered what to do.

150.Deciding to leave that place, he had the gopas prepare carts for a journey to Vrndavana.
