NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 40 - PUTANA MOKASHAM


Dasakam - 40 - Putana Moksham






Nandagopan, a man of great virtues, went to the kingdom of Mathura where Kamsa is ruling, to pay taxes. Vasudeva met Nadagopan and talked affectionately and very friendly to him. He congratulated Nandagopan and expressed his happiness over him begetting a son and conveyed that he is as happy as he would have got one.

Vasudeva warned Nandagopan of the bad omens which are felt at Gokulam at that time and hence instructed him to return home back as quickly as possible. Hearing it, Nandagopan fell in to apprehension about the safety of Krishna and set on his return to Gokulam.

In the meanwhile, Putana, the demoness, under Kamsa's order visited Nandagopan's house in the disguise of a beautiful woman, with hair adorned with beautiful and attractive flowers. She, after killing several infants, lifted Krishna in her hand, even while the other gopikas wondered amongst themselves as to who this beautiful lady was.

Awestruck by her charming looks, Gopis did not obstruct her when she took the child in her hand and went in to the house. She chose a place in the house and started to feed the child with her breast milk. Angered at Putana's killing of innocent children, Krishna fearlessly climbed on to her body and sucked the poison smeared breasts as if it was a huge mango fruit.

Krishna sucked the life of Putana, acting as if he was sucking the milk. She fell on the ground making thunderous sound with both hands stretched, reverting to her huge demoness form. Hearing the huge sound, entire Gokulam was in a state of shock. Seeing Krishna playing innocently on the dead body of Putana, Gopikas came and picked him up hurriedly.

Gopikas prayed to Lord, chanting his various names which brings auspiciousness to the world, seeking him to protect the child without knowing that Lord only is in the form of child Krishna in their hands. Bhattathiri requested Guruvayoorappan to free him from his disease and make him more devoted towards Lord.
