Murder of God
nature of man is strange. To kill Lord Ram, Ravan jumped into
the battlefield. To murder Shri Krishna, Kans tried his best.
Bhasmasur took boon from Lord Shanker and then ran behind
him to reduce him to ashes and Lord Vishnu somehow saved him.
It means that men have tried to omnipotent God.
There was a
similar king who dreamed of murdering God. He called his commander-in-chief
and ordered him to murder God because he felt that it is because
of God that he is unable to rule upon earth. His Commander-in-chief
bowed his head and said to the Kind - “But he is formless,
so he cannot be arrested. Then how can he be killed?”.
The king became angry
and said loudly “what is the investigation department doing”? Tell
the department to investigate exactly where God is. You fool! It
is continuously said about God that he is omnipresent and he exists
in everyone. If my order is not followed within one month, you will
The king's Commander-in-chief
went away from the office, but his heart was filled with fear. Hearing
the foolish order of the king, he became puzzled. He thought that
his end was near. Just then, the Commander thought of a trick. As
soon as the stipulated time duration passed, the commander–in-chief
came to the king.
The crown full
of priceless diamonds on the King's head was glittering like
the Sun. He asked his commander-in-chief while twisting his
long moustache - “Have you followed my order or not?”
Bowing his head
in honour, the commander-in-chief answered “My King, you have
said the truth that God is every where. This means that he
is within your as well, without a doubt. To arrest God, I
must arrest you first and then to murder God, you must be
murdered. How can I follow your order in these circumstances?
I am just your servant and I am yours faithfully.”
The king wondered
how he could give such a foolish order. After feeling guilty about
passing this foolish order, he said. “Go away from in front of my
eyes and do your work.”
