NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 61 - VIPRA PATHNIGAL ANUGRAHAM


Dasakam - 61 - Vipra Pathnigal Anugraham









One day, Krishna along with his brother Balarama, Gopas and cows went little far away in to the forest from Vrindavan. He had planned to give blessings to Brahmin women or the vipra-pathnis who were all devoted to him. As they wandered deep in to the forest, Gopas felt tired and hungry and wanted food to eat and water to quench their thirst. Krishna directed them to go to the Brahmins who were doing yagnya nearby and ask boiled rice in his name.

Gopas went to the Brahmins and requested food in the name of Krishna but they turned a deaf ear to their pleas concentrating on their rituals. Gopas were saddened at heart at being ignored by the Brahmins and returned disappointed. This act of the ritualistic Brahmins who were not devoted to Lord for a long time, was expected. When they are not devoted, how they will offer food to Lord?

Krishna then told the gopas to go to the wives of those brahmins and ask for food. He added that the vipra pathnis or yagna pathnis who are full of compassion, will not refuse offering food. The gopas went to the vipra pathnis and asked for food. When Gopas took Krishna's name, the wives became excited. They had desired to see Krishna for a long time. Inspite of being forbidden by their husbands, the women carried four types of food offering and came to see Krishna quickly.

The vipra pathnis were delighted to see Krishna with a cheeks glowing with the reflection of the dancing ear-drops, swaying peacock feathers in his crown and standing with his arms around his friend's shoulder. One of the vipra pathni was physically prevented by her ritualistic husband to go near Krishna and meeting him. She meditated deeply on Krishna at that place itself and merged with Lord, attaining salvation. How fortunate, She is?!

 Krishna took their offering and blessed them. The vipra pathnis desired to have physical contact with Krishna and had abandoned their houses.  Krishna advised them to go back to their husbands and help their husbands to conduct the yagnya rituals properly. He asked the husbands, not to have ill feelings towards their wives.

The Brahmins realized their mistake of not recognizing who Krishna was and respected the devotion of their wives to him. They reflected upon themselves, realised the paramatma and sang in his praise. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord Guruvayoorappan, who blessed the vipra pathnis, to eradicate all his sufferings.
