Krishna and Sudama Eternal Friendship | Mythological Story

When people think about True Friendship, Krishna & Sudama is always talked about. Sudama was a Brahmin man but he was very poor. He couldn't even feed his children every day because of money.
One day his wife told him,"Even if we remain hungry at least our children should be able to get food to eat."

Sudama was poor but he didn't like to take any favors. He felt hurt by his wife's statement. He said, "What can be done? We can't ask for favors from anybody."

Sudama's wife replied, "Krishna is a good friend of yours. You have been saying that you have a deep bond of friendship with him. He is the King of Dwarka, so why don't you go to him? There won't be any need to ask for anything there."

Sudama found wisdom in the words of his wife. He decided to go to Dwarka & said, "I'll definitely go to Krishna but what should I take along with his children?"


Sudama's wife packed some rice snacks, which she borrowed from her neighbors, in a torn clothes, and gave it to Sudama. Sudama took the bundle and left for Dwarka.

On seeing Dwarka, Sudama was amazed. The entire town was built with gold & the people were very well-off. He asked for directions for Krishna's palace & finally reached there. On seeing Sudama who looked like a solitary, the palace guards asked, "Why have you come here?"

Sudama answered, "I want to meet Krishna who is my friend. Go & tell him that Sudama has come to meet you."

The guard smirked on seeing Sudama's attire. However, he hesitantly went & informed Krishna of Sudama's arrival. On hearing Sudama's name, Krishna immediately stood up & ran to meet him. Everyone looked on in wonder upon seeing such a great King running bare-footed to meet his poor friend.

Krishna took Sudama into the palace. They recalled their childhood days. Seeing Krishna's wealth, Sudama felt ashamed of the rice snacks that he had brought & tried to hide the bundle but Krishna snatched it from him. While enjoying the snack Krishna said, "I have never tasted such sweetness in anything else."

Later, they sat to have their meal which was served in gold plates. Sudama felt sad as he remembered his hungry children at home. He stayed at the palace for two days but he couldn't prepare himself to ask Krishna for any favors. On the third day, he got ready to go back home. Krishna embraced Sudama & escorted him out as he bid him farewell.

On the way back, Sudama wondered, "What shall I say when my wife asks me what I've brought back?"

As Sudama approached home, he could not find his hut! Instead, his wife came out from a magnificent palace & dressed in elegant clothes. She told Sudama, "Look at Lord Krishna's; we have been rid of our poverty. Krishna has ended all our miseries." Sudama recollected Krishna's pure love & his eyes welled up with tears of joy.
