Lord Sri Krishna caused three well-performed Asvamedha-yajnas [horse sacrifices] to be conducted by Maharaja Yudhishthira and thus caused his virtuous fame to be glorified in all directions, like that of Indra, who had performed one hundred such sacrifices.




This is something like the preface to the performances of Asvamedha-yajna by Maharaja Yudhishthira. The comparison of Maharaja Yudhishthira to the King of heaven is significant. The King of heaven is thousands and thousands of times greater than Maharaja Yudhishthira in opulence, yet the fame of Maharaja Yudhishthira was not less. The reason is that Maharaja Yudhishthira was a pure devotee of the Lord, and by His grace only was King Yudhishthira on the level of the King of heaven, even though he performed only three yajnas whereas the King of heaven performed hundreds. That is the prerogative of the devotee of the Lord. The Lord is equal to everyone, but a devotee of the Lord is more glorified because he is always in touch with the all-great. The sun rays are equally distributed, but still there are some places which are always dark. <font color="blue"> *This is not due to the sun but to the receptive power. </font color> Similarly, those who are cent percent devotees of the Lord get the full-fledged mercy of the Lord, which is always equally distributed everywhere.
