NARAYANEEYAM DASAKM - 41 - CREMATION OF PUTANA


Dasakam - 41 - Cremation of Putana



Nandagopan returned to Gokulam immediately as per the advice of Vasudeva. On his way, he saw a huge thing falling on the earth, crashing the trees. Frightened at this sight, Nandagopan surrendered to Lord and kept seeking protection for Krishna. The gopas were spellbound and shocked when they were informed by the gopikas about the incident. They took axe and cut Putana's body in to pieces and cremated it at a distant place.

Lord had sat on Putana's lap and sucked the breast milk, which sanctified her. So when fire engulfed her body, good fragrance emanated from it, making everyone wonder if it was incense or sandalwood that is burning. It was as if to send message to Gopas that the fruits of touching Lord's body or having vision of Lord will not be delayed. Eventually they will get Moksham in that birth itself. For this reason, Lord conferred such a fragrance on Putana.

Gopas were immersed in bliss seeing Krishna's face, surprised at the fact that the child escaped from the demoness and that those events were already predicted by Vasudeva. Gokulam flourished with prosperity, happiness, auspiciousness and undiminished virtues as Lord himself was growing up there.

Gopikas kept talking about the beauty of the child, his smile amongst themselves all day long while they did work and evenings they rushed to Nandagopan's house to see and play with the child. They would call baby Krishna and held him in their arms and showered their love in many ways. As each one of the gopikas passed Krishna from one hand to the other, it was like honey beetle moving from one red lotus to the other in a garland.

Yashoda fed the baby and kept looking at his face smilingly. Bhattathiri wondered at the joy, Yashoda must have experienced in all these acts of caring and pampering of Krishna. He requests such Lord to remove his afflictions and save him.
