One day, when Krishna and His cowherd
boy friends were playing on Govardhana Hill, a demon who could fly in
the sky approached. The demon’s name was Vyomasura. He turned
himself into a cowherd boy and joined in their games.
The boys decided to play a game of thieves and constables, in which
some boys were constables, some were thieves, and some were the sheep
that the thieves would steal. Vyomasura played as a thief, and he stole
the smaller boys who played as sheep, and put them into a cave on the
hill. Then he blocked the cave with a big stone, and stole more boys.
Krishna saw what was happening, so He went to the cave and confronted
Vyomasura. Vyomasura turned himself back into his own demon form and
grew suddenly to a giant size to prevent Krishna from grabbing him.
But Krishna simply threw the giant demon down and killed him, and then
He rolled aside the stone and freed the boys.
