NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 55 - KAALIYA NARTHANAM


Dasakam - 55 - Kaaliya Narthanam








With the intention to drive away Kaaliya from river Yamuna, Krishna reached the Kadamba tree near the bank of the river, leaves of which had already dried up due to the poisonous air. Krishna climbed the tree with his lotus feet. From the top of the tree, he leaped into the river waters with swirling waves. Krishna, who bears three worlds, when jumped in to the water, the river rose and swell due to his immense weight, submerging river bed to an extent of hundred yards.

Disturbed by the uproar and upsurge, Kaaliya came out angrily with his thousand hoods, each resembling a mountain, emitting fire and deadly poison, attacked Krishna who did not even move. Then Kaaliya who was fuming poison and spreading intense heat wrapped himself around Krishna.

Meanwhile Gopas waiting for Krishna became restless and came in search of him to the river. Also the people of Vrindavan experienced some bad omens at home and rushed to river yamuna to see what was happening there.  All of them saw that Krishna was being surrounded by thousand heads of the deadly Kaaliya. Immediately they were gripped by fear and grief, wanted to give up their life to save Krishna. But all of a sudden, Krishna freed himself from the clutches of Kaaliya's hoods and rose smilingly above the coils of the serpant in the water.

Mounted on the hoods of the serpent king Kaaliya, Krishna started to dance with his tender lotus like beautiful feet. He danced so gracefully over every rising hood of the serpent with his anklets making gentle sound matching with the tinklings of the bangles on his wrists. Gopas were awestruck to see the dance, Divine sages and Gods from heaven who gathered to witness the dance, showered flowers.

Bhattathiri delighted with the grace with which Lord danced on the serpent king Kaaliya, prayed to Guruvayoorappan to protect him and cure him of afflictions.
