”Of truth there exist many riches. The vision of truth smashes the crooked, and the signal call of truth bored open deaf ears; [...] and by truth the cows approached truth. (Whoever) holds fast to truth, just he wins truth. The explosive force of truth hastens swiftly as it seeks cattle. For truth the two (worlds) are wide, ample, and deep; for truth do they, as the two highest milk-cows, give their milk.“ ––– R̥gveda IV 23 (319), 8–10, Indra & r̥ta; tsl.

While Krishna was playing with some herdboys, their ball fell into the river and Krishna jumped after it. The serpent Kāliya rose up with his hundred and ten hoods vomiting poison and wrapped himself around Krishna's body. Krishna became so huge that Kāliya had to release him. When he saw the Brij folk were afraid he sprang onto Kāliya's head and assumed the weight of the whole universe, and danced on the naga's heads, beating time with his feet.
