BECAUSE HE WAS THE SLAVE OF HIS LOVERS
Krishna replied that prasad was for his lovers and none else. This consisted of laddu or Indian sweetmeat balls.
At last the Rishi, who was very intelligent, begged Krishna's
favourite disciple, Pendya, who was a cripple, to ask Krishna for
him. This Krishna permitted (because he was the slave of his lovers)
and as a result the Rishi gained illumination.
