One day an elderly woman came near Krsna’ s house to sell fruit. She called out, “If anyone wants fruit, please come to me!” Krsna took some grain in His hands and went to trade it for fruit, just as He had seen the older people do. But He was not very careful to hold His hands tight, and He was dropping all the grain as He walked. Still, captivated by Krsna’s beauty, the fruit vendor accepted the few grains left in His palm and filled His hands with fruit. At that moment, through His mystic power Krsna filled the woman’s basket with jewels and gold . Whoever gives something to the Lord is never the loser; he is the gainer millions of times over.
