A little boy lived in a town. Good looking and cheerful he was affectionate towards all. Once,there was heavy rain in this town and its surrounding areas. Hearing a moaning sound close to his house the boy rushed out. It was coming from a lion cub getting drenched in the heavy rain. Being compassionate by nature he brought the cub home and brought it up. The cub grew in to a lion and behaved like a pet animal. The big lion followed the boy wherever he went.
Once, he happened to pass a forest near his town. Is not a forest filled with wild and dangerous animals like tiger, bear and leopard? These wild animals thinking that the boy was alone came up to kill and devour him. But going near him they were shocked to find a lion playing so closely withhim.
All the animals who came to make a meal of the boy ran away out of fear on seeing the lion with him. The boy had no power to control these wild animals of the jungle: yet, these cruel animals feared this little boy because the lion, the king of the forest, was with him.
In the sameway, the wild and dangerous animals of desire and hate are waiting to take hold of us and pull us away who are passing through the forest of life (samsaara). To protect ourselves from it we have to surrender verily unto the Lord's Divine Name (BhagavanNaama).
No sin will touch the Devotee (Bhakta) who surrenders unto the Lord's Divine Name and incessantly chants the Divine Name. Sins will flee from one who has the Divine Name with him.
