NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 39 - KRISHNA JANMOTHSAVAM


Dasakam - 39 - Krishna Janmothsavam






Vasudeva, one who is best among the yadhu clan, carried the baby Krishna and reached the river Yamuna. The river was running to its full, with waves touching the sky. The moment he approached the water, she receded and reduced the water to the ankle height of Vasudeva, as if the huge flooding waters were an illusory magic. At Gokulam, everyone was fast asleep due to the prompt of Lord. Doors of Nandagopan's house opened and the yogamaya gave a shrill cry as if to announce the location of the house. Vasudeva left the baby Krishna near sleeping Yashoda and carried the girl child to reach Mathura faster.

Yogamaya cried after reaching the prison and guards rushed to inform Kamsa that 8th baby is born. Kamsa came running in anger and agitation to the prison cell, but was confused to see a baby girl in his sister Devaki's hands. Kamsa thought to himself that this must be some maaya of Lord Vishnu. He snatched the baby from Devaki's hands like an elephant snatching and plucking the lotus from the pond and lifted his hand to hit it hard on the stone slab. The baby girl slipped of his hands and took a divine form with powerful weapons in her eight arms in the sky.

Yogamaya called out to the cruel king Kamsa and said that there is no use in killing her, the person who is going to kill him is born elsewhere.  Lord's sister then vanished in to the different temples in the earth while devas sprinkled flowers on her. Kamsa informed his demons Pralamba, Baka, and Poothana about Yogamaya's words, the next morning and immediately the asuras went on a spree of killing all male infants all around the world. Bhattathiri exclaimed that what deeds are not possible for such merciless people?

Krishna now gave a cry announcing his birth in gokula, waking up Yashoda. She immediately informed Nandagopan and all gopikas, the happy news of arrival of male child. The whole gokula rejoiced the arrival of the child. Yasodha looked at the baby Krishna who was as fresh as the kayambu flower, fed him with milk, touched and caressed him and felt extremely happy. Bhattadiri exclaimed that yasodha is the most fortunate one in the world to experience this bliss.

Nandagopan brimming with joy distributed gifts to all holy Brahmins and performed all rituals for baby's welfare. Gopas did all the auspicious rites and observances for the child. Bhattathiri requested Lord who bestows auspiciousness to all in the three worlds to ward off his afflictions and protect him.



Lyrics of Dasakam 39



भवन्तम्-अयमुद्वहन् यदुकुलोद्वहो निस्सरन्
ददर्श गगनोच्चलत्-जलभरां कलिन्दात्मजाम् ।
अहो सलिल सञ्चय: स पुनरैन्द्र जालोदितो
जलौघ इव तत्क्षणात् प्रपदमेयताम्-आययौ ॥१॥

भवत्-कुशल-काम्यया स खलु नन्दगोपस्तदा
प्रमोद भर सङ्कुलो द्विजकुलाय किन्नाददात् ।
तथैव पशुपालका: किमु न मङ्गलं तेनिरे
