As I had mentioned earlier, our friendship should be like one that existed in between Lord Krishna and Sudama as how fondly they held each other in great esteem. Lord Krishna had blessed the family of Sudama with plenty of wealth without even telling him as he had not asked for it. Lord Krishna depicted it clearly that wealth and sta...tus never decides the fate of a relation. Friendship when done should be carried out with love, care and respect. He even proved the well-know idiom that a friend in need is a friend indeed. Sudama is an example of sakhya rasa because he had entrusted himself to Lord Krishna with full love though his friend was rich he didn't demand for help, but maintained his self respect and showed that friendship is a mutual understanding not a relation of demands

Here, one can see the Picture of Lord Krishna and Sudama. Lord Krishna has defined friendship a sacred bond of life by depicting his friendship with his childhood friend Sudama. As the legendary story goes, I present herewith the said story... in brief and urge you to have glimpse on it and learn lesson from it.During the days of gurukul Lord Krishna and Sudama had become good friends and with time sudama went to Mathura and settled their as a Brahman. Sudama worshipped Lord Krishna as his deity and his family survived on the charity he got from the villagers; his poverty increased with time thus his wife advised him to go to his friend Shri Krishna and ask for help for he had become the king of Dwarka. Sudamaji didn't agree but seeing his family’s miserable life he agreed to it. His wife gave him a tiny bag of rice she had just begged it from her neighbor. When Sudama arrived to Dwarka his state was too bad, for he walked from Mathura to Dwarka his feet got swollen covered with mud pricked with blades of grass, clothes clad and feeble body. On the gates of Dwarka's palace he told the guards to inform Shri Krishna that his childhood friend Sudama had come to meet him, though guards didn’t believe but they still informed Shri Krishna of his arrival. As Lord Krishna heard this message he ran towards the gates of palace bare feet and hugged Sudama. On seeing his friend in that pitiful state ,tears from eyes of Lord Krishna rolled out. He welcomed Sudama with full respect and requested him to spend some time in Dwarka with him. Lord Krishna gave a special treatment to Sudama and respected him in every manner. Lord Krishna knew that Sudama hid the bag of rice his wife gave as a gesture for Krishna in order to avoid humiliation of being poor. Lord Krishna snatched it from Sudama and accepted it with pleasure. Sudama left for Mathura, but regretted for he couldn't ask Krishna for help. On reaching Mathura Sudama was astonished to know that Lord Krishna had blessed his family with plenty of wealth without even telling him as he had not asked for it. Lord Krishna depicted it clearly that wealth and status never decides the fate of a relation. Friendship when done should be carried out with love, care and respect. He even proved the well-known idiom that a friend in need is a friend indeed.Let us cherish their friendship and pay our humble obeisances to their lotus feet to seek their bliss to carry out their legacy very truthfully in our life!

many people may need to be reminded,in this age,all over again.but all those ,who live in Krishna consciousness,modestly..me.live by all these moral values.life is so lovely that ,when a person rises,in consciousness,we can do a much large...r benefit,to society ,than on a individualistic nature.
