The Story of Gajendra, Elephant-King


The story of Gajendra is found in Srimad Bhagavatam, or Bhagavata Purana, one of the most renowned and sacred texts of ancient India. It promotes bhakti, devotion and love for God Vishnu. This amazing scripture includes breathtaking narratives, about battles between good and evil, distant stars and interplanetary travels, brave warriors and extraordinary magicians, self-knowledge and wisdom, duty and righteous life.

In the described story, Vishnu saves Gajendra, King of the elephants, from the jaws of a giant crocodile.

Anna Milagrits introduces this timeless Purana for children and assures her young audience that it is important to ask for help and support, even if one is famous and powerful, like Gajendra.
