NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 45 - BALA LEELA

Dasakam - 45 - Bala Leela






Balarama and Krishna started to crawl on their hands and knees. They were interested in hearing to the rhythmic sound made by their anklets put in their beautiful lotus flower like legs and hence crawled with great briskness. The duo smiled exposing their beautiful new teeth, hair locks falling on their faces and the lotus like feet, armlets slipping down to the wrists, becoming like bracelets were very attractive for the onlookers.

The people who watched the two crawl, followed them everywhere. Both ran away after giving an enchanting smile. When people stopped following both, the duo turned their lotus faces back, casting a look, giving incredible joy to the people. While moving fast, Krishna would fall down and get smeared and tainted by mud, Sages in the heaven witnessed these pranks of the Lord and worshipped them. Rohini and Yashoda came quickly and lifted them up carefully and embraced them, kissed them again and again with great joy.

The soft hearted Yashoda took the baby Krishna on her lap and fed him. While taking the feed, Krishna would stop in between and smile at Yashoda charmingly,  adding immense joy to her. How fortunate was the mother Yashoda?! Soon Krishna started to walk and started to run and play with the Gopa boys in the neighbourhood. With the child-like restlessness, Krishna ran behind pets, cows and calves in the houses and Gopa boys with great difficulty restrained Krishna from doing these pranks.

Krishna and Balarama went everywhere together. Gopikas were watching and  following them, leaving their household chores, children, family behind. This became the routine for the gopikas. Krishna loved the freshly made butter given by gopikas. Sometimes Krishna sang sweetly or danced graciously, captivating the Gopikas. With lot of affection, Gopikas served him with freshly boiled milk which he drank with delight.

Lord having begged Mahabali for food in his Vamana avatharam, now in this krishna avatharam decided not to beg gopikas for butter but decided to silently steal from their pots. His clever tricks delighted the gopikas more than making them angry. Krishna along with stealing butter and ghee from gopikas, stole their hearts as well and immersed them in the ocean of Bliss.

Bhattathiri prayed to such chitta-chor Lord Guruvayoorappan to remove his afflictions.


Lyrics of Dasakam 45 


अयि सबल मुरारे पाणिजानुप्रचारै:
किमपि भवनभागान् भूषयन्तौ भवन्तौ ।
चलित चरण कञ्जौ मञ्जु मञ्जीर शिञ्जा-
श्रवण कुतुक भाजौ चेरतुश्चारु वेगात् ॥१॥
