Chritar 24 - Tale of Sumer Kaur
A raja, who belonged to Raghubans Dynasty, used to live in the Upper
part of the country. Chandra Mati was his principal Rani, very
pretty one. They had a daughter, named Sumer Kaur, who was extra
ordinary beautiful. She got married to a southern Raja, and began
enjoying her married life. She gave birth to two sons and a
daughter, all of whom were very handsome and beautiful. Soon
after, the southern Raja died, and his son succeeded
him. Long time passed, but the widowed Rani could not
bear to be without her lover, as she acutely felt the necessity for
sexual union. She called for a handsome man, and had sex with him
and was greatly calmed. She started to calling him at her house
every night. When the people saw the man going to her house, they
admonished him, the watchman treated him as a thief. Then the
maid would make some story, and the man would enter the house.
Then the woman would have sex with him. On another night she
called for her man, who disguised himself as a woman and entered her
house. She them told him, that he had enough of sex with her,
which is the end of it. For the future, a new way was to be
adopted. He should go to the jungle and bath in the natural
spring water there. Then tell others that he had met Sri Krishna
and thereafter become a silent ascetic. Whosoever people
would come to see him, he would tell them of this surprising
thing. Listening to this they too will be surprised.
Thereafter, the woman said that she would come in a palanquin to
see him; she would bow to him, considering him as her Guru.
Thereafter she would bring him in her house, and there they would enjoy
the sexual copulation. The man acted as she directed him to do.
Next morning he went to the jungle , and took bath in the spring
water. After mouth washing, he sat down beside the spring in deep
contemplation, uttering that Lord Krishna had come in his vision.
Hearing this news the people swarmed to the place, bringing with them
sweetmeats and snacks. They presented him milk and rice
too. Then they made obeisance at his feet in various ways.
People began to say that since he had the vision of Krishna, so he was
their Guru. They further demanded that since they esteemed him
greatly, so he should remove the fear of Death in
Their hearsay also spread in the town, and the Rani also heard it
thoughtfully. She sat is palanquin and along with twenty five of
her friends went to the jungle where man was. She went
toward the man, bowed down at his feet, and begged for her peace of
mind. Addressing the man, she said that he had been blessed with
the vision of Krishna, so he should give them some anecdotes of his
He said that he had come there for an ablution, and after taking bath
he contemplated, When he sought his divination with great
determination, then Shri Krishna came to his vision. He further
stated that he did not remember what Lord Krishna had conferred on
him, He was merely astounded with his radiant sight and he lost
his senses. The lord came with a garland of wild flowers
around and yellow clothes on. Even lightening faltered on his
sight; and that he was astounded to see all this. Krishna’s
glamour was so high that , even, the birds, antelopes and reptiles
became very attractive. The deer felt modest and the black bees
went crazy on his lotus like posture. Krishna had many pretty
female companions, who had adored beautiful and novel
The Rani then said that there should be no doubt that this man
was the knower of Bhagwan, and Vedas and the Shastras could testify
this fact. All the ladies who had come to see him, fell on his
feet to pay their obeisance and requested him to visit their respective
houses to sing the praises of Sri Krishna.
He then said to the Rani that he prayed for the prosperity of her
country, and that he was quite satisfied to live there like a
hermit. However, she persisted to visit her house. She
would every service to his desire and would never evade.
The Rani then told all others to leave her alone with him, as she
wanted to talk to him. She then started making love with
him. Every one imagines that she had attained to Krishna, and
none could know the actual reality. Then she brought her paramour
to her home with other fifty friends. She then made people to
leave the place, and began her love affairs with him. The people
considered the man as the Guru, and did not understand the

Her lover lived with her, as if they were living as man and wife.
