While he waits at the edge of the forest, Narada goes to the village , knocks at the door, falls in love with the young woman who answers, marries her, founds a family, and lives happily with his wife and children for years until a flood comes and inundates the village sweeping everything before it.
Five Beautiful Stories on Hindu Concept of Time
Narada too is washed away by the current and is thrown perchance at exactly the point where he had parted company with Vishnu. As he lands there, he is greeted by Vishnu who asks him for the water that he had gone to fetch. The narrative reaches the point where the demon Maricha, assuming the guise of a golden deer, lures Rama away from his forest-hut in the hermitage, leaving Sita exposed to danger.
Where, Oh where, is my bow? As the king of the gods sits majestically in his, self-satisfied and aware of his own importance, into this assembly moves a phalanx of ants that takes everyone by surprise. Only one man in the assembly, seeing his strange vision, laughs aloud. When asked by Indra what causes him this laughter, he says that each of these ants was an Indra in a previous birth.
As he approaches the senior most queen of Krishna, he finds her attending upon Krishna with chowri fly-whisk in her hand. Greeting the divine pair, Narada withdraws and moves into the next chamber to pay his respects to the wife of Krishna next in seniority and, as he enters, sees her playing a game off dice with Krishna. In chamber after chamber Narada encounters Krishna, and is greeted by him each time as if he had seen the sage just then.
In the Bhagavata Purana, again, Akrura, the great devotee of Krishna, is described as being entrusted with the responsibility of escorting Krishna and Balarama to Mathura. On the way, Akrura feels the need to refresh himself by taking a bath in the Yamuna along the banks of which they are moving. With the permission of the two brothers, Akrura halts his chariot, enters the water, and dips his head only to see, below the surface of the water, Krishna and Balarama seated in the chariot exactly as he had left them on the river bank.

Disbelieving, he takes another dip: this time, under the water, he sees Krishna as Vishnu lying on the serpent couch of Sesha, Krishna and Balarama having assumed their true forms. Akrura suddenly sees, in this vision, the identity of Krishna and Vishnu, Balarama and Sesha. But when he lifts his head, he sees on the river bank Krishna and Balarama again as youthful boys engaged in conversation.
