NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 57 - PRALAMBASURA VADHAM



Dasakam - 57 - Pralambasura Vadham








Krishna, the fulfiller of all wishes, one day decked in best attire went to the forest together with Balarama and Gopas surrounded by cows. Happily showing the pure scenic beauty of the Brindavana to Balarama, Krishna carrying a staff and sporting a playful mood reached the Bhandareeka(Banyan) tree.

At that time, Pralambasura came there in disguise of a gopa, in an intention to kill Krishna. Krishna quickly recognizing him and his motive, acted innocent and welcomed him and allowed him to be a part of the group. Then Krishna divided the group in to two one headed by him and other by his brother, organised a dual fight between people of two groups with condition that whoever wins should be carried on back by the loser. Pralambasura joined Krishna's group as he was aware of Krishna's power.

Balarama's group overpowered Krishna's group soon. Krishna having lost to his dearest friend Sridhama carried him on his back, affirming his affection for his devotees. In due course of time, Many cowherd boys were carrying and be carried by the other as per game rules. Balarama defeated Pralambasura who then carried Balarama on his back and went long distance away from Krishna.

Balarama increased his weight slowly by his divine power. Unable to bear Balarama's weight for long, Pralambasura dropped him and took his actual form. He resembled a huge mountain touching the cloud and his form was so scary that even Balarama for a second, was shocked. Then seeing Krishna from far, he warded off his fear and sat on shoulders of Pralambasura and hit his head with his mighty fist. Pralambasura was crushed to pulp and fell dead.

Balarama returned back victoriously after killing asura. Krishna embraced his brother and devas and God, who watched this from the celestial world, showered flowers on them. Bhattathiri praised the Lord, the supporter of the three world, one who shines like bees, the one who perfectly executed the plan to kill Pralambasura without delay to protect his devotees and requested to cure his afflictions soon.
