NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 60 - GOPIKA VASTRAABAHARANAM



Dasakam - 60 - Gopika Vasthraabaharanam






The Gopikas, due to their overwhelming love for Krishna, were pained with their separation from him. Desiring to serve Krishna's lotus feet every day, gopikas made an image of Goddess Girja on sand near the banks of river Yamuna and worshipped her devoutly. In the morning the beautiful eyed girls of Vraja, chanted Lord's names and exchanged his pastimes while going to the river bank. They worshipped the Goddess with different pooja aids and offerings with the prayer that the son of Nanda, Krishna should become their husband.

Krishna was touched by compassion, when he saw the gopikas performed these vratha for a month. He went to the river bank to bless them. Having completed the vows and vratha for a month, the gopikas went to the river to sport in the water happily, leaving behind their clothes on the river bank. When they saw Krishna there, they felt embarrassed. Gopikas put their heads down in shame. Krishna took away the heap of clothes lying on the river bank and climbed up the branch of a tree.

Krishna with a teasing smile, asked the gopikas to come and take their clothes. Gopikas became helpless and more embarrassed at this and were confused as to what to do. With folded hands they pleaded with Krishna as to why he is doing this to them, who are his servants and requested him to give back their clothes. Krishna gave an attractive smile as an answer.

Gopikas came out of the water with folded hands and prayed to Krishna. Krishna relieved them of the sin of having taken bath without clothes in the river. He gave back each one of them their clothes and blessed them along with words of promise. Krishna said that he knows their mind and would give a proper response during the moon lit nights on the sand banks of the river Yamuna at an appropriate time.

Gopikas heard the honey dripping words of Krishna. They saw his lotus face again and again with love and slowly returned to their respective houses. After blessing the Gopikas, Krishna roamed in the forest. Bhattathiri pleased with Gopika's devotion and Krishna's mercy on them, requested Lord to put an end to all his ailments.
