Brahma was amazed to see little Krishna perform wonderful
feats. He thought of a plan to test him.
One day, while Krishna was out with his friends tending the cattle,
he found them all disappearing one by one. Seeing the field getting empty
this way, Krishna was surprised. He immediately understood that this was
the doing of Lord Brahma. But he did not want to return without his
friends and cattle as it would make their parents anxious. To convince
Brahma of his ability, Krishna started expanding into various forms. As
he was god himself, Krishna could take on any from he desired. In a while
the entire field was again crowded with all his friends. The calves
too appeared, some mooing and some grazing the fields. It looked exactly
the same as before.
Brahma was startled. He realised Krishna's immense powers and showered
flowers from the heavens above.
