A vast number of these variants have become fixed in literary renderings; others continue in the fluid form of unwritten folklore. T h e story is told of a semi-divine ascetic, Narada, who once demanded directly of the Supreme Being to be taught the secret of his Maya. * In response to his prolonged and fervent austerity, Vishnu had appeared to him in his hermitage, and granted the fulfilment of a wish. W hen he humbly expressed his profound desire, the god instructed him, not with words, but by subject­ ing him to a harrowing adventure.

The god responded. ” “ ‘T he god went on: “ No one can comprehend my Maya. No one has ever comprehended it. There will never be anyone ca­ pable of penetrating to its secret. Long, long ago, there lived a godlike holy seer, Narada by name, and he was a direct son of the god Brahma himself, full of fervent devotion to me. Like you, he merited my grace, and I appeared before him, just as I am appearing now to you. I granted him a boon, and he uttered the wish that you have uttered. Then, though I warned him not to inquire further into the secret of my Maya, he insisted, just like you.

But then his mind became aware of the fathomless depth of the shoreless ocean and was overcome with a freezing fear. T h e god, in the guise of the divine child, gently addressed him. " T h e voice had the soft deep tone of the melodious thundering of an auspicious rain cloud. T h e god reassured him: “Welcome, Markandeya! Do not be afraid, my child. Do not fear. ” T h e hoary, ageless saint could not recall a time when anyone had presumed either to address him as “ child,” or to name him simply by his first name without any respectful appellation re­ ferring to his saintliness and birth.
