He immediately fell down at the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa, although his own crown was dazzling like sunshine.
Krishna and Kaliya the Demon Serpent. In this story Krishna, the ultimate manifestation of the Hindu God-head is exorcising a ferocious malevolent entity in serpent form who had terrorized the villagers, poisoned the waters, and killed all the nearby wildlife - even birds flying by overhead.
”Of truth there exist many riches. The vision of truth smashes the crooked, and the signal call of truth bored open deaf ears; [...] and by truth the cows approached truth. (Whoever) holds fast to truth, just he wins truth. The explosive force of truth hastens swiftly as it seeks cattle. For truth the two (worlds) are wide, ample, and deep; for truth do they, as the two highest milk-cows, give their milk.“ ––– R̥gveda IV 23 (319), 8–10, Indra & r̥ta; tsl. Jamison & Brereton 2014: 596
