Sakshi Gopal (Children's Story Book)

Gopal the Lord who stood as witness

Sakshi Gopal is the story of an old brahmin who had the desire to go to Vrindavan to see Lord Krishna and the young brahmin who assisted him on his pilgrimage. When they arrived in Vrindavan after a long journey the old brahmin prommised to give his daughter in marriage to the young brahman to thank him for helping him make this pilgrimage. However, when they returned the old brahmin's family became very upset about this because the young brahmin was from a lower family.

Sakshi Gopal (Children's Story Book)

Once there lived in Vidyanaga two Brahmins. They decided to go on a pilgrimage. One brahmin was young and poor. The other was old and wealthy.   First they visited Gaya, then Kashi, then Prayag. With great joy they went on to Mathura. From there they visited the twelve forests of Vrindavan and bathed in the Yamuna River.

The young poor brahmin boy took care of the old wealthy brahmin very well. The old brahmin was very pleased with the young man's services.

The young man turned around and pointed towards the Gopal ji temple...


The old brahmin continued: "In return I promise you my daughter in marriage."

"Dear sir," the young man said, "I am not at all aristocratic or educated, and I am very poor. I am not a suitable husband for your daughter."

"I served you to please Lord Krishna for He likes to see His devotees serving the brahmins. Besides you cannot give me your daughter without the consent of your friends and relatives."

The old man assured him that no one could make him change his mind.

A wonderful story and a great size for the children. Simple text and a lovely bed time story for the younger children. I love the illustrations and Gopal looks so cute in this book.

The story is very good in this book. We have been giving this book to delivery men who come to deliver goods to our house. And to a nurse.
