NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 44 - KRISHNA NAAMAKARANAM


Dasakam - Krishna Naamakaranam







Vasudeva wanted to perform naming ritual for the baby. So at his request, Garga Muni, expert in Hora shastras visited Nandagopan's house. Nandagopan welcomed the sage and honoured him ceremoniously. Garga Muni told Nandagopan that he is Acharyar for Yadhu vamsham and he planned to conduct the naming ceremony rather secretly.

Lord has more than thousand names, amongst that which name to select? Garga Muni had this apprehension for some time, then secretly named the child as Krishna. Krish meant existence and Na meant the connection between the existence and absolute bliss form. Krishna also meant the one who removes the sin of all. He also gave few other names including Vaasudevan, without actually revealing that the child Krishna is Sri Hari himself. He named the elder brother as Rama (Bala Rama).

Garga Muni told Nandagopan that whoever is devoted to his son Krishna will never suffer and whoever troubles your son will perish. He added that his son would kill many asuras and help his clan to achieve good position and as father, Nandgopan will be hearing always of his son's untainted fame.

Sage meant Vasudeva and told him that all his sufferings will come to an end only through this child. Without mentioning that his son is Lord Hari himself, he asked Vasudeva to keep faith on the child. After sage's depature, Nandagopan and all gopas were very delighted and looked after Krishna enderingly. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord, to remove his afflictions with his mercy.


Lyrics of Dasakam 44


गूढं वसुदेवगिरा कर्तुं ते निष्क्रियस्य संस्कारान् ।
