achanak ek bar varsha ke dinon men tez barish huee. kee dinon tak bnd hone ka nam hi nahin liya. badalon ki garaj aur bijali ki kadak ne sabake hday men bhay utpann kar diya. moosaladhar varsha ne gram ke pas bahane vali nadi men badh ki sthiti paida kar di. kinare todakar nadi uphan padi. charon or pani hi pani kachche-pakke sabhi makan dhahane lage. ghar ka saman bah gaya. pashu bhi doob ge. anek vyakti mar ge. ganv men trahi-trahi mach gee. narad ji ab kya karen. unhonne bhi ghar men jo kimati thoda-bahut saman bacha tha usaki gathadi-muthari bandhi aur apani patni tatha bachchon ko lekar pani men se hote hue jan bachane ke lie ghar se bahar nikale. bagal men gathari, ek hath se ek bachche ka pakade, doosare se apani stri ko snbhale tatha patni bhi ek bachche ko god men lie, ek ka hath pakade dhire-dhire age badhe. pani ka bahav atyant tez tha tatha yah bhi pata nahin chalata tha ki kahan gaddha hai aur kahan tila. achanak narad ji ne thokar khaee aur gathari bagal se nikalakar bah gee. narad ji gathari kaise pakaden, donon hath to ghire the. socha jaisa usaki ichchha phir kama lenge. kuchh door jane par patni ek gaddhe men gir padi or god ka bachcha bah gaya. patni bahut roee, lekin kya ho sakata tha, dhire-dhire aur do bachche bhi pani men bah ge, bahut koshish ki unhen bachane ki, lekin kuchh n ho saka. donon pati-patni bade dukhi, rote, kalapate, ek-doosare ko satvana dete, age koee oonchi jagah dhoondhate badhate rahe. ek jagah age chalakar donon ek gaddhe sama ge. narad ji to kisi prakar ke gaddhe men se nikal ae, lekin unaki patni ka pata nahin chala . bahut der tak naradaji use idhar se udhar door-door tak dhoondhate rahe lekin vyarth, rote-rote unaka bura hal tha, hday patni aur bachchon ko yad kar karake phata ja raha tha . unaki to sari grihasthi ujad gee thi. bechare kya karen, kise kosen apane bhagy ko ya bhagavan ko. bhagavan ka dhyan ate hi narad ji ke mastishk men prakash phail gaya aur purani sabhi baten yad a gee. ve kisalie ae the aur kahan phns ge. o ho! bhagavan vishnu to unaki pratiksha kar rahe honge. ve to unake lie jal lene ae the aur yahan grihasthi basakar baith ge. varsho bit ge, grihasthi ko basane men aur phir sab nasht ho gaya. kya bhagavan ab bhi meri pratiksha men usi vriksh ke niche baithe honge. yah sochate hi badh nadarad ho gee. ganv bhi atnrdhan ho gaya. ve to ghane van men khade the. narad ji pachhatate aur sharamate hue daude, dekha kuchh hi door par usi vriksh ke niche bhagavan lete hain. narad ji ko dekhate hi ve uth baithe aur bole, 'are bhaee narad, kahan chale ge the, badi der laga di . pani lae ya nahin.'

narad ji bhagavan ke charan pakadakar baith ge aur lage ashru bahane. unake munh se ek bol bhi n phata. bhagavan muskarae aur bol, 'tum abhi to ge the. kuchh adhik der thode hi huee hai.' lekin narad ji ko lagata hai ki varshon bit ge. ab unaki samajh men aya ki sab bhagavan ki maya thi, jo unake abhiman ko choor-choor karane ke lie paida huee thi. unhen bada ghamand tha ki unase badhakar trilok men doosara koee bhakt nahin hai. jara si der men dher ho gaya. ve punah saralata aur vinay ke sath bhagavan ke gun gane lage.


is katha se hamen yah shiksha milati hai ki yadi hamare pas kuchh hai, hamane athak parishram, lagan tatha nishtha se kuchh prapt kar liya hai chahe vah apar dhan ho, sharirik shakti ho, bhara-poora parivar ho ya phir koee oonchi yogyata, pad ya yash ho to us par ghamand kyon karen. kya hamase oopar aur log nahin hain? kya ham hi sarvopari hain? anek hamase pahale ho chuke hain aur age bhi hogen phir ghamand kaisa. apani is visheshata se apana aur doosaron ka labh hone den tabhi usaka kuchh mahattv hai anyatha vah to koyale ki bori ke saman hai jo apake stor men vyarth men hi bina upayog men ae rakhi hai. ikattha karane men nahin bantane men sukh hai, anand hai.
