Yogurt Rice And Pickles by Sripad Vallabhacharya
The cowherd boys derived transcendental bliss as they were having their lunch with Lord of the universe! At first all the boys, gathered all the various dishes which they had brought, and the first portion was offered to Lord Sri Krishna. Because of this, these dishes which had been offered to the Lord, became unlimited by His Grace! Now all the boys were able to eat without restriction, as the quantity became unlimited. Along with the cowherd boys, our Lord also began to eat His food.
To exhibit His sweet childhood pastimes of eating, Krishna now sat with His flute tucked beneath His waistcloth on His right side and with His horn, bugle and cow-driving stick on His left. He held in His left hand a very nice preparation of yogurt-rice mixed with ghee, and in His right hand he kept, in his fingers, pickles made of fruit
which can be eaten with the rice.
Even when Lord went away to search for the calves He was still carrying the yogurt rice on the palm of His hand.
He neither ate it nor threw it away! He carried this yogurt rice, in His hand, as He went into the caves of the mountains, forests and other dangerous places, in search of the calves.
