SB 1.8 - The devotees accept the Lord's mercy

Lord Kṛṣṇa caused three well performed Aśvamedha yajñas to be conducted by Yudhiṣṭhira and thus caused the king’s fame to be glorified in all directions like that of Indra, who had performed one hundred such sacrifices. Yudhiṣṭhira was a pure devotee of the Lord, and thus his fame was on an equal level with Indra, although Yudhiṣṭhira had performed only three sacrifices. The mercy of the Lord is always equally distributed everywhere but the pure devotees who accept that mercy are glorified. The Lord, although playing the part of a kṣatriya, was worshipped by the brāhmaṇas headed by Vyāsa. Observing the social customs to set an example, the Lord also reciprocated their greetings. Then He prepared for His departure.
