NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM 37- KRISHNA AVATHAARAM - PRELUDE


Dasakam 37 - Krishna Avathaaram - Prelude






Lord had killed lot of asuras during their fight with devas, some attained salvation. Few like Kaalanemi who had some karma left, were again born as kamsa and other asuras and were troubling people on the earth.  Soon Goddess Earth was over burdened with the weight of Asuras and people with evil mind and actions. She surrendered at the feet of Brahma asking him to bring relief to her. Even before she reached, Devas and other gods had already reached and requested the same. Seeing the sorrowful plight of Mother Earth and Devas, Brahma meditated on Lord.

Brahma suggested that only Lord Hari could help at this point and hence led by Lord Shiva, Mother Earth, devas, Brahma and other gods reached the milky ocean and took refuge at the lotus feet of the Lord. Everyone meditated at the Lord's feet, Brahma heard the voice of Lord in his heart. He conveyed the happy news to the gods that Lord is aware and acknowledges the sad plight caused by asuras and hence will be born in Yadava clan with all his powers to have a complete incarnation. The gods will be born as rishis, wives of Devas will be born in earth to serve him. These words brought happiness and peace to the Mother Earth, devas and gods assembled there.

In the famous city of Mathura, Vasudeva, son of King Surasena, ruling over Mathura city, married Devaki, the daughter of Devaka. Devaki's brother Kamsa took the couple on procession in the decked chariot, to honour them. At that time, Lord's voice sounded that Kamsa will be killed by Devaki's eighth son. Kamsa immediately, out of fear, took his sword and caught Devaki by hair and was about to kill her. Vasudeva pleaded with Kamsa to spare her life but those did not make any positive impact on Kamsa. After Vasudeva promised to hand over all his children, the moment they are born, Kamsa let Devaki free. 

When the first child was born, Vasudeva handed over the child to Kamsa. Even the cruel minded Kamsa for a moment got attracted to the beauty of child and thought of sparing him. Sage Narada prompted by Lord, advised him that he is an asura and Yadavas were Devas, Hari the master of Maaya will be born in any of the birth to kill him. Kamsa then chased the yadavas and killed the child and this cruel action continued for all 6 children born to Vasudevan and Devaki. 

The King of Serpants, Adhisesha entered the womb of Devaki, when she concieved for seventh time, Lord prompted yoga maaya to transfer the fetus to the womb of Rohini. Lord then entered the womb of Devaki at her eighth pregnancy. Devas and Gods praised the Lord in appreciation for his avathaaram as Sri Krishna to commence on earth sooner.

Bhattathiri overwhelmed with the love, devotion and appreciation for the Lord Krishna prays to him to remove his sufferings and grant him devotion to Lord, which can lead to salvation.


Lyrics of Dasakam 37


सान्द्रानन्दतनो हरे ननु पुरा दैवासुरे सङ्गरे
त्वत्-कृत्ता अपि कर्मशेष वशतो ये ते न याता गतिम् ।
