NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 79 - RUKMINI VIVAHAM


Dasakam 79 - Rukmini Vivaham






Krishna entered Kundini kingdom and Bhishmaka, King of Kundini welcomed him with honours.
Balaraman got to know that Krishna had gone to Kundini and took his army and reached Kundini to be of support to Krishna. The Brahmin approached Rukmini and informed her of Krishna's arrival. Rukmini was overjoyed by the news and prostrated the Brahmin immediately. The people of Kundini saw the beautiful and charming Krishna and felt sad about Rukmi's decision to give Rukmini in marriage to Shishupala. They spent entire night, sleepless and in sorrow.

Next day morning Rukmini, who face resembled as beautiful as moon, decked in her bridal dress and jewelry, came out of her palace. Having set her mind, heart and soul on Krishna, Rukmini, surrounded by guards, went to the Ambika temple to pray to goddess Parvati. Rukmini entered the temple with the noble women and did pooja for Goddess Parvati and prostrated at her feet. She prayed again and again that only Krishna should marry her.

The kings assembled outside the temple eagerly to see the beautiful princess Rukmini. Krishna also was standing along with them but little aloof. As she came out of the temple, her radiating beauty mesmerised the kings and people on all sides. Krishna was enchanted by her when she cast her side glance on him. Krishna went near her and asked where she was heading to and while speaking only, he took her hand, led her to the chariot and drove away with her. There was a loud protest from the onlookers.

The angered kings including Salva searched where the cowherd boy had gone and put up a fight. They were easily defeated by Yadavas. A lion is not affected by the barking of dogs, similarly Krishna was unaffected by the enraged and evil minded kings. Next, enraged Rukmi attacked Krishna. Defeating him effortlessly, Krishna was refrained from killing him by Rukmini. Krishna then tied his hands with a vasthra and shaved of his beard and hair thus humbling his pride. With request of Balarama, Krishna released Rukmi from bondage and proceeded to Dwaraka with Rukmini, who is Mahalakshmi herself.

Rukmini felt shy with her union with Krishna and her joy increased with the love experienced. Krishna sported with her in privacy and Rukmini's face beamed with charming smile. Krishna delighted Rukmini, day and night, with his pleasant talks and jokes. One time, Krishna with his doubtful words made the simple and honest minded Rukmini to get agitated. Krishna teased her for wanting to get married to a cowherd-boy when so many kings were seeking her hand. He said she had listened to the Brahman's words and decided to marry Krishna, who does not own any kingdom. He went to the extent of telling that she can chose a different person too, instead. Hearing this, Rukmini fell unconscious. Then Krishna consoled her and made her happy again.

Krishna and Rukmini were given a jubilant welcome at Dwarka and marriage took place with great pomp and glory. Their union was inevitable on earth as they were divine consorts, Vishnu and Mahalakshmi. Having spoken only the glory of Lord always, Bhattathiri requested that he be protected from all miseries due to the disease. Lord Guruvayoorappan promptly acknowledged his request.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 78 - DWARAKA VASAM, BALARAMAN VIVAHAM, RUKMINI SANDESHAM

Dasakam - 78 - Dwaraka Vaasam, 

Balaraman Vivaham, Rukmini Sandesham







Vishwakarma, the divine architect, put all his exemplary skills to built Dwaraka in the middle of the sea. Divine Gods gave  majesties to make it prosperous. But it was beautified more only by the presence of Krishna. Under the instructions of Brahma, Revathan's son, Karuthmaan gave his daughter Revati in marriage to Balaram. Krishna together with Yadavas performed the festive celebration with grandeur.

The King of Vidarbha, Bheeshmaka's daughter Rukmini was in love with Krishna. But her brother Rukmi, in his total ignorance, decided to give his sister in marriage to Chedi king, Shishupala. Rukmi was friend with non-virtuous Shishupala. Rukmini having nurtured love for Krishna for a long time, became upset over her brother's decision to marry her to Shishupala. She sent a Brahmin as messenger to Krishna, conveying her love and the pain she was experiencing due to the threat of non fulfillment of her wish to marry Krishna.

Dwaraka is not reachable for those with evil thoughts and actions but the Brahmin messenger reached it faster. Krishna, the one who removes the afflictions of worldly pleasures, welcomed him and honoured him. Brahmin then conveyed to Krishna that Kundina (capital of Vidarbha) princess Rukmini is in love with him and has sent him to convey her mind. Knowing excellence of Krishna, Rukmini is attracted to Krishna and has already chosen him as her husband. Now chedi king Shishupala is planning to marry her. So she requested Krishna to intervene and protect her. She had also mentioned that she would not live if Krishna fails to protect her.

Krishna conveyed that he is equally in love with Rukmini and promised to the Brahmin that he will come to Vidarbha and carry the princess in front of all the kings assembled there for the marriage and marry the dark-eyed Rukmini.  Krishna left to Kundina immediately with the Brahmin in the chariot. Bhattathiri worshipped the Lord of Guruvayoor to protect him from his afflictions and was duly acknowledged by the Lord.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM 77 - UPASHLOKA JANANAM, JARASANDHA AND KAALAYAVANA VADHAM


Dasakam 77 - Upashloka Jananam,

Jarasandha and Kaalayavana Vadham






Saiarandhari gave sandal paste to Krishna when he entered Mathura. In return, Krishna set right her hunchback and promised her that he will visit her house some day. She dressed herself well with costumes and jewellery, decorated her house well and waited for Krishna's arrival. Krishna decked in his beautiful costumes and jewellery went with Uddhava to Sairandhari's house. At his arrival, all her wishes got fulfilled and she welcomed Krishna and happily served him various offerings

Krishna wanted to grant a boon for her hospitality. Instead of asking for devotion to Krishna throughout her life or asking for his presence with her always, this ignorant woman asked his presence with her for few nights. Bhattathiri wonders at her ignorance of not asking "saamipyam" (being close with Lord) of the Lord or "saaujyam" (being one with Lord) from the Lord. Krishna granted her boon and made her happy the following few nights, as a result a son Upashloka was born to them. He learnt paancharathraagamam from Sage Narada and shone as an exponent forever.

Krishna together with Balarama and Uddhava went to Akrurar's house as promised to him. Akrurar welcomed them heartily and worshipped him singing his praises. Krishna sent Akrurar to know the whereabouts of Pandavas, sons of Kunthi. He came to know the return of Pandavas from exile and Bheema escaping from Duryodhana's attempt to kill him by poisoning him and pushing him into Ganges, through Akrura's meeting with Dhritarashtra.

Jarasandhan, father in law of Kamsan, angry with Kamsa vadham, lost his brains in anger, attacked Mathura. Krishna, taking help from Balarama and the chariot he got from devaloka, retaliated and killed 23 Akshouhinis (1 Akshouhini - 21,870 chariots, elephants, 65,610 cavalry and 1,09,350 infantry). Balarama somehow arrested Jarasandhan who was strongest king in the world at that time, having captured territories in all directions around. To make him come for fights more, Krishna freed him. Jarasandhan attacked 16 times and every time he was defeated and in all 391 Akshouhinis were killed by Krishna. When he came for the 18th time, Krishna took help of devaloka architect Vishwakarma and built a palace in Dwaraka amidst the sea and deported all his people to Dwaraka through his yogic powers.

Krishna then ran away acting coward outside the city. Kaalayavana, friend of Jarasandha chased him and Krishna purposefully ran into a cave as he wanted to avoid killing him with his hands thereby preventing salvation for Kaalayavana. As planned by Krishna, Kaalayavana stepped on Muchukunda who was sleeping inside the cave and got reduced to ashes by him. Pleased with Muchukunda, Krishna showed his Bhagavath Swaroopam to him. Krishna wanted to grant a boon, but Muchukunda being great devotee of Krishna requested only his blessings as he is not interested in anything else. Moved with his answer, Krishna granted deep devotion which will give him moksham at later stage and advised him to do penance to dilute the sin he had accumulated by hunting and killing animals and for having inflicted pain to his subjects during his rule.

Krishna returned to Mathura after Kaalayavana vatham and killed his armies. The Magadha king Jarasandha once again obstructed Krishna. This time once again, Krishna let Jarasandha get victory so that his ego is boosted up and will come for fight once again. Then Krishna fled to his kingdom Dwaraka situated in the middle of the ocean. Bhattathiri worshipped that Lord who gave false pride to Jarasandhan and went to Dwaraka, to protect him from his ailments and Lord immediately acknowledged his request.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 76 - UDDHAVAR DHOOTHYAM


Dasakam - 76 - Uddhavar Dhoothyam





Krishna went to Guru Sandeepani ashram along with Balarama and mastered all arts in sixty four days. As gurudakshina, he brought back alive, Guru's dead son from Yama's abode and gave back to the guru and Guru's wife. Krishna returned back to Mathura sounding his Panchajanya, the conch.

Meanwhile, the gopikas in vraja were constantly thinking of Krishna and were soaked in the bliss all the time. Remembering their love, Krishna felt overwhelmed and decided to send Uddhava as a messenger to Gokulam, thereby creating an opportunity for Uddhava to understand the depth of devotion of the gopikas. Uddhava reached Gokulam by evening. He spent the night with Nanda and Yashoda enquiring about their well being and made them happy by describing the great deeds of Krishna. In the morning, seeing the chariot in front of Nanda's house, gopikas thought Krishna had returned and later got to know that an emissary of Krishna has come. They came to meet Krishna's friend Uddhava, abandoning their chores at home.

Gopikas saw Uddhava dressed in costumes and jewelry similar to that of Krishna. They were reminded of the leelas performed with Krishna before and became speechless. They forgot themselves and others and slowly composed themselves and started to speak with the choked voice. They asked if the merciless Krishna sent Uddhava to just meet his parents, Nanda and Yashoda. They wanted to know the whereabouts of Krishna who must have become the beloved one for Mathura girls, by then. Unable to forget the nectar like body of Krishna and the embraces, the funny talks and actions and the love he had given them, the gopikas lamented that it is very unlikely that they can forget him.

Gopikas remembered how during Rasaleela dance, Krishna's beautiful hair had loosened and dishevelled while his body glowed with sweat drops. They requested Uddhava to tell Krishna that they wanted to embrace Krishna and experience it once again. Uddhava imparted the spiritual message sent by Krishna to the grief struck gopikas and made them come back to their normal selves. Uddhava spent few more days in vraja, narrating various incidents about Krishna and made the gopikas more happier.

Uddhava noticed that in Gokulam, only songs related to Krishna leelas were heard in every house while they did their household chores. Their talks were always centered around Krishna. The people talked about Krishna even in their dreams. Their actions imitated Krishna as they tried to personify him. Uddhava was left wonderstruck and stunned by these observations. Next, Uddhava met Radha and told her, how Krishna was always reminded of her. Krishna would talk about things Radha liked, the way she use to talk. If Uddhava was silent anytime, Krishna would ask why he was silent like his Radha. By conveying these, Uddhava made the lotus eyed Radha very happy.

Krishna's message through Uddhava to Radha and gopikas was that he was unable to come to vraja due to his preoccupation and not due to his reduced love for them. Their devotion towards him was increasing in their separation and hence there is no need to grieve. Krishna will meet them soon and bless them with the supreme bliss after which union or separation from him will mean the same to them. Hearing these assuring words, gopikas were freed from grief. 

The devotion of gopikas were the rarest and best in the whole world. No one has ever heard nor seen such heights of devotion to the Lord. Uddhava felt that mere prostration to their feet is enough to attain salvation than doing penance or studying scriptures

He returned to Mathura completely soaked in the bliss after meeting the gopikas. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord who was happy with Uddhava's realisation about gopikas devotion, to protect him from him afflictions.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 75 - KAMSA VADHAM


Dasakam - 75 - Kamsa Vadham






Early next morning, the fear-stricken Kamsa ordered the commencement of the wrestling match by beating the drums. The kings took their respective seats, Nandagopan went upstairs to watch the happening from balcony and as soon as Kamsan also went upstairs, Krishna and Balarama, dressed well in clothes and ornaments approached the entrance to the arena. Kuvalayapida, an angry elephant obstructed them from entering the arena. Krishna shooed away the elephant by calling it a sinner. The cruel minded and angry mahout prompted the elephant to attack Krishna. The elephant came with great speed and caught Krishna by its tusks. Krishna gave a hard blow to its forehead and disappeared between its legs. Later he came out smilingly.

The sages who meditate upon Krishna, would find him to be in their grasp and suddenly would be missing, similarly he was playing sport with the elephant. He would allow it to catch him and suddenly wriggle out and go far. He even acted as though he fell on the ground. The elephant rushed towards Krishna and immediately he pulled out its life along with its tusks from its root. Below the tusks were some beautiful pearls which Krishna collected and entrusted it to his friends and asked them to make it in to beautiful necklace and gift it to Radha on his behalf.

Krishna carried the tusks on the shoulder and walked into the arena with Balarama. The eyes of all seated there were attracted to the radiance of Krishna and to his auspicious form. The people exclaimed that Nandan was highly fortunate, some said it is Yashoda who was fortunate and some declared it is them, the onlookers who were fortunate in all the three worlds to have the eyes to see Krishna. The Brahman itself, the infinite supreme consciousness and bliss which shone amongst Gopas in real and physical form was not recognised by them. At the appropriate time, many realised Krishna as Brahman and got their sins relieved instantly. They joyfully narrated all his deeds and actions which they remembered.

As per Kamsa's order, great boxer Mushtika and champion wrestler Chanooran started attacking Krishna and Balarama. They created loud noise and blowing their fists fiercely, threw up, pushed down, dragged each other mutually, many times. Even before death, Chanooran attained bondage and release many times in Krishna's hands. The onlookers exclaimed that Balarama and Krishna are tender bodied while the asuras were tough bodies. They wanted to leave the arena not wanting to witness that unequal contest. Just then, Krishna caught Chanooran by his arm, whirled him around and threw him dead on the ground. At the same time, Mushtika was crushed to death by Balarama. Watching the feat, rest of the wrestlers ran away from the arena in fear.

Kamsa stopped the drums and not knowing what to do next, ordered Nanda, Vasudevan and Ugrasena, who are all respectable people to be killed and also chase away Krishna, who is omnipresent, to far off place. On hearing the evil minded Kamsa's words, Krishna leaped like Garuda from the mountain and reached to Kamsa seated on the throne in the balcony. Kamsa came near Krishna whirling his sword and though he resisted, Krishna caught him forcibly.

Krishna crushed the joints of Kamsa and pushed him down and hurled on the top of him. Immediately Devas, Gods and celestial angels showered flowers on Krishna. Bhattathiri mentioned here that Kamsa was constantly thinking of Krishna due to fear and because of having focused his mind on Krishna and his whereabouts always, he attained Moksha. In the previous birth also, when Kamsa was Kaalanemi, he was killed by Krishna and the remembrance of that by Kamsa paved way for moksha in this birth.

Krishna killed eight brothers of Kamsa immediately and released his parents Devaki and Vasudevan from the Jail and offered his salutations to them. He made Kamsa's father Ugrasena as king and gave the Yadavas whatever they desired and made them happy. Krishna made friends with Uddhava, the best among devotees and who had received his educations from Deva Guru Brihaspati. Bhattathiri worshipped that Lord who happily stayed in Mathura to protect him from his ailments and was duly acknowledged by Lord Guruvayoorappan from the sanctum.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 74 - MATHURAPURI PRAVESAM


Dasakam - 74 - Mathurapuri Pravesam






Krishna reached Mathura by noon. He reached the garden in the outskirts and took lunch along with his friends. Then he proceeded to go around the city. Men and women who had heard of his mighty actions and attributes were waiting eagerly to see his swaroopam. Bhattathiri asked Lord at this juncture, if Krishna was tied and pulled to the main road of city, by the rope of good deeds of those people living in Mathura. Lord Guruvayoorappan immediately agreed with Bhattathiri's words.

Women in Mathura gathered around him. They were similar to Krishna in every respect. They were affectionate and glorious similar to his radiating red lotus feet. They had breasts similar to Krishna's lustre of rain bearing clouds. They were running all around to catch glimpse of Krishna similar to the movement of his eyes. The women were decked with beautiful flowers similar to the necklaces covered chest of Krishna. The women appeared majestic and glowed with purity similar to Krishna's pure and majestic form, with the charming smile. The women wore ornaments in their tresses similar to Krishna's crest which was adorned with peacock feather. (Here one should understand that people of Mathura had stayed focused on Krishna's form and glory all the time, that they looked very much like him)

Krishna walked past the city viewing these beautiful women by side glances, making them happy. People gathered in large numbers in awe and joy to have Krishna's darshan. At that time, Krishna saw a washer man carrying clothes and asked him if he can lend him a robe suitable to wear. The washer man arrogantly replied that it belongs to King and how can he give it to him and asked Krishna to go away. Krishna cut off his head instantly with his hand and due to Krishna's touch, washer man attained salvation immediately.

Another washer man gave him suitable robes to wear and Krishna granted him, his abode Vaikuntam immediately for his good deed. Bhattathiri wondered who else other than Lord, know the virtues of the Jeevathmas. One garland maker adorned Krishna with beautiful garlands and sang his praise. Krishna wanted to give a boon to him but he only requested the boon of always being devoted to Krishna. With his answer, Krishna was pleased and blessed him with more devotion and wealth.

There was a beautiful women with lotus eyes but with a hunch back whom Krishna next met and she welcomed him and smeared sandal paste on him and his friends. Krishna, in return, made her love for him, intense and inorder to make her outer physique reflect her inner purity, Krishna held her chin by his right hand and put his arms around her back and stepped on her foot and made her erect as a normal person transforming her to a beautiful women in the world. 

The people of Mathura who were devoid of even a small amount of sin, stood along the road offering betel leaves, flowers whatever they could and offered their salutations to Krishna. Bhattathiri exclaimed at this point that had he stood there in the Mathura with joined palms in salutation when Krishna was entering and offered him what he could, similar to the fortunate people of Mathura, perhaps he would not be born and suffering from ailments and sorrow this day.

Krishna told the lady who offered him sandal paste, that he will come to her house soon and proceeded to the gate of the Mathura fort. She was looking at the direction Krishna went, for a long time with fear. From the jubilation of the people, Devaki inferred that Krishna has arrived and became immensely happy. Milk started to flow from her breasts similar to how Krishna's fame reached Mathura even before he did.

Krishna entered the festive city and went directly to the ammunition room where the bow was kept. Seeing Krishna's radiance, might and beauty, the guards could not deny entry to him. Even before the guards rush to prevent Krishna from touching or taking the bow, which was decorated with flowers, he had already taken it by hand, strung and broke it too.

The terrific breaking sound of the bow was like the prelude to good and auspicious thing to happen the next day, the Kamsa vadham and sounded like the beat of the drum which symbolises victory. It caused horripilation to the Devas. Kamsa trembled in fear and it was further increased by the cries of the guards who were hit by the broken bow.

Krishna made the good people happy and scared the evil ones. He then went around the city and viewed its prosperity and returned to the camp in the garden by late evening. He spent the evening with friend Sridhaama and was sharing his sorrow due to his separation from Radha. Later Krishna went to take rest, feeling happy that his purpose of incarnation to Earth was going to be fulfilled soon. Bhattathiri requested Lord to protect him and Guruvayoorappan acknowledged it immediately.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 73 - MATHURAPURI YATRA


Dasakam - 73 - Mathurapuri Yatra






Gopikas heard the news of Krishna planning to leave to Mathura with Akrurar. They were deeply saddened and lamented as to what was that? How and why it was happening? This son of Nandagopan is ocean of mercy, how can he leave us, who have no support otherwise. Why did God do this to us. Fixing their minds on Krishna, the gopikas lamented and cried.

Krishna was to leave along with father and friends in the last part of the night. Krishna sent one of his companions to console the grief struck gopikas. He sent the word of promise that he will be back soon and they will have many more meetings with him. He further consoled them by saying that he will give them more pleasure and drown them in supreme bliss.

Gopikas with great sorrow worshipped Krishna and followed him with their eyes for a long distance. Krishna too glanced through the corner of his eyes at the direction of gopikas and left with Balarama in Akrurar's chariot. Many gopas followed the chariot in their own chariots and even gopikas followed Krishna through their thoughts. Animals in the forest felt very sorrowful. The trees and creepers on the way too drooped. Krishna crossed all these and came to the Yamuna river bank.

As the chariot reached Yamuna river bank, Akrurar, son of Gandhinee got down to take bath in the river and do his daily ritualistic prayers. When he took a dip in water he saw Krishna in the water and when he lifted up from water, saw Krishna seated on the chariot. He became helpless not knowing what it is all about and wondered at the omnipresent swaroopam of Krishna which is seen everywhere and became excited.

The virtuous Akrurar took a dip in the water once again. He saw Lord seated on Adisesha, adorned with the discus, conch, mace and lotus and surrounded by other Devas, siddha purushas and gods. Immersed in supreme bliss, Akrurar worshipped Krishna as Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva and as devas in saguna and nirguna forms. Even after the vision disappeared, Akrurar continued to be soaked in the unlimited bliss, experienced goosebumps all over the body and came to Krishna seated on the chariot.

 Krishna asked Akrurar whether the water was so cold and is that the reason he got goosebumps all over. However Akrurar was speechless as he was completely immersed in the supreme bliss which was caused by his vision of the Lord's form. Bhattathiri worshipped that Lord Form which was seated besides Akrurar in the chariot and prayed that he may be protected. Lord Guruvayoorappan acknowledged his request immediately.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 72 - AKRURAR'S JOURNEY


Dasakam - 72 - Akrurar's Journey






Kamsan came to know from sage Narada that Krishna, Devaki's eighth son is living in Gokula. He became scared and upset. He immediately summoned Akrurar, son of Gaandhini to meet Krishna and invite him and Balarama to his Dhanur yagna festival. Akrurar had always been a devotee of Krishna for a long time. He hid his longingness to meet Krishna for fear of Kamsan. When Kamsan himself ordered him to meet Krishna, he was overwhelmed with joy and set out on his chariot to meet Lord.

The fortunate Akrurar, on his way to Vraja was constantly thinking of Krishna. He was praying continuously that he should not encounter obstacles in meeting Krishna, so much that he was oblivious of surroundings on the way. While vedic texts offer hundreds of ways to reach Lord, Akrurar wondered if, he will be able to see him, be able to touch him, be able to embrace him, be able to talk to him. Thinking over these, Akrurar went to vraja assuming Krishna to be present everywhere all along the way.

Akrurar reached Brindavana which was sanctified by the holy feet of Krishna and worshipped by Brahma, Parameshwaran and other gods. He was in a state of unexplainable bliss and ecstasy. He worshipped the places where Krishna played. He rolled on the sand where he found Krishna's footprints. At this point, Bhattathiri mentioned that amongst so many devotees in the world then, ardent devotees like Akrurar were still rare to find.

Akrurar passed by the house of gopikas who were singing about various sportive actions of Krishna. It was like sweet nectar flowing in to his ears which took him to a state of bliss and spiritual joy. Finally he reached Krishna's house by dusk. Krishna and Balarama were overseeing milking of cows and it appeared as if Krishna was waiting for the devotee's arrival. Krishna was exhibiting the same internal divine feelings and experiences which Akrurar felt about Krishna on his way to Vraja.

Krishna and Balarama looked fresh and tidy after evening bath and were decked with less jewellery but looking more beautiful. They wore a peethambaram on hip and were sporting a gentle, attractive smile. Krishna spotted Akrurar, the crown of the clan of devotees from distance as he got down from the chariot. Akrura, chief of devotees prostrated to Krishna and Balarama. Krishna lifted him with joy, embraced him and enquired his well-being and led him inside the house.

Krishna and Nandagopa did honours to Akrurar, belonging to Yadavakula. Akrurar conveyed the message of Kamsa to them and Krishna communicated the same to the gopas. Rest of the night, Krishna spent time conversing and exchanging matters with Akrurar at Gokula. That night Gopikas wondered if Krishna spent time with chandrai or chandrabagai or Radha or Mitravrindaa and having fun and forgot the rest of them. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord who is friendly and loved by everyone to protect him from his disease.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 71 - KESHI AND VYOMASURA VADHAM


Dasakam - 71 - Keshi and Vyomasura Vadham





Keshi, a close friend of Bhoja king Kamsa was never unsuccessful in any of his attempts. He took the form of a horse and started from the land of Sindhu, thinking to himself, Krishna is easily accessible to the lady(Mahalakshmi) who came out of Sindhu(ocean), likewise Krishna will be accessible to him as well. He took the form of celestial horse but his fierce voices frightened the three worlds and went on a rampage attacking people of Gokula. Finally he came and stood in front of Krishna.

Keshi kicked the chest of Sri Krishna, whose legs are kept on his vehicle Garuda, with his hooves. Having heard the story of Sage Bhrigu kicking Lord on his chest, Keshi thought perhaps, even he can do so. Krishna caught and took the horse by its hooves and threw him far. Keshi fainted but then sprung back with more anger and fury.

Deciding to punish the horse, Krishna kept his club like arm in to its mouth. The arm grew in size and choked Keshi to death. Though he was a demon in the form of horse, he became one with Lord immediately. Indra and all other Gods were happy merely at the killing of the horse and considered it to be equivalent to Ashwamedha sacrifice done by Krishna. They gave Krishna with name, "Keshava" meaning killer of Keshi and sang his glory.

Sage Narada introduced Krishna as son of Vasudeva to Kamsa. Kamsa set out to kill vasudeva immediately. Narada verbally prevented Kamsa from killing Vasudeva. At the end of Keshi Vadham, Narada met Krishna and sang his glory.

One day Krishna was playing hide and seek with Gopas in the forest. At that time, son of Mayan, Vyoma who has immense magical powers approached Krishna. Gopas were playing thief and police, when Vyomasura acted as thief in the game and hid the cows and gopas in a cave and closed its entrance with a stone. Krishna understood the situation and killed him and freed the cows and gopas.

Krishna made Vraja a happy place for the gopas with his amazing sports and actions. Bhattathiri prayed to that supreme Lord who made the people of Vraja happy, to protect him from his afflictions.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 70 - SUDHARSHANA SAAPA MOKSHAM, SANKACHOODA AND ARISHTA/VRISHABA VADHAM


Dasakam - 70 - Sudharshana Saapa Moksham,

Sankachooda and Arishta/Vrishaba Vadham







After the blissful rasakreeda with gopikas, Krishna went to Ambika vana along with Nandagopa and other gopAs to offer prayer at Sri Parameswaran temple. After performing the divine festival in the night, Krishna and the gopas slept comfortably, a huge snake swallowed Nandagopa. The snake looked up fiercely. Gopas tried to hit the snake with huge logs but it would not simply release Nanda. Gopas surrendered to Krishna and prayed for protection. Krishna went near the snake and touched it with his foot. With Lord's touch, the snake released Nandagopa and took the original form of Vidyaadharan.

Vidyaadharan introduced himself as Sudharshanan to Krishna, the wielder of sudarshana chakra. He said that he was cursed to become snake by divine sage Aangeerasa for having teased him while he was in meditation. When he asked for forgiveness, he was told by sage that he will get back his form only when Krishna touches him. That was the reason, he caught Nandagopa. Sudharshanan thanked Krishna and  prayed with beautiful hymns and left to swargaloka. The gopas happily returned to Vraja.

Once when Krishna and Balarama were playing with gopikas, Kubera's emissary, Sankhachooda kidnapped few gopikas. Krishna and Balarama gave a wild chase and in fear, Sankhachooda left the gopikas and ran away. Krishna caught him, killed him and snatched his crest jewel Choodamani and gifted it to Balarama. Krishna was having good times with Balarama and gopas in the forest during the day time.Krishna looking very attractive, enjoyed playing his flute. This was a wonderful sight for the celestial damsels. Gopikas suffered from the pangs of separation from Krishna and kept lamenting.

Arishta was a demon and servant of Kamsa. He was cruel and evil and terrific in appearance. He took the form of a fierce bull and came bellowing horribly and stood before Krishna. He was chasing all the cows and causing trouble to gopas and finally encountered Krishna, the repository for Vedas. The asura was ready to attack Krishna with his frightening horns but Krishna, though asura came in the auspicious form of Vrishaba, held the horns and attacked him swiftly and killed him.

Devas and divine gods were happy and praised Krishna as the protector of Righteousness or Dharma by slaying Arishtasuran who came in vrishaba form. In Sanskrit, Rishaba means bith Dharma and bull and called him the protector of Dharma. Gopas chased the bulls on the way home for fun, asking them to run as the slayer of bull is with them. Thus Gopas and Krishna reached home happily. Bhattadiri worshipped the Lord, the slayer of Vrishabasura or Arishtasura, to protect him from his afflictions.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 69 - RASAKREEDA VARNANAI

Dasakam - 69 - Rasakreeda Varnanai







Narayana Bhattathiri closed his eyes in meditation and thinking, how a seven year old boy could have done rasakreedai with the young women and continued his bhajans. Hearing the rhythmic beats, he opened his eyes. To his amazement, Lord was enacting the rasakreedai at the sanctum of Guruvayoor temple and Bhattathiri continued singing in the meter corresponding to the rhythm of the dance enacted.

With peacock feathers adorning his hair lock and dancing fish shaped ear-drops, pearl ornaments and variety of garlands on his neck, sandal paste on chest and golden ring around his hip over the yellow silk dress, stone studded shining anklets on the feet; Lord danced spreading his sweet fragrance everywhere. Bhattathiri meditated on the above form of the Lord.

The gopikas, who were dressed in their best with beautiful ear-drops, surrounded Lord (Guruvayoorappa/Krishna) Padmanabha, the consort of Lakshmi. Krishna took many forms and moved in such a way that he was there between two gopikas and one gopika between his two forms alternately. Raasa means dance or it can also be taken as enjoying the sweet divine form of the Lord. 

Sage Narada pleased with the rasakreeda enacted at Sri Guruvayoorappan sanctum, invited devas, apsaras and beautiful damsels to witness the most beautiful dance. Hearing his call from afar, devas and the celestial women dressed in their best, adorned with jewelry rushed from heaven and gathered along the skies.

The music emanating from the flute was showcasing the beautiful key notes and alapanas of the raga of the song played. Matching to the tune, Krishna danced with rhythmic foot steps and he was accompanied by gopikas who were making matching sounds with their bangles. Krishna was sporting his lotus like hand on the shoulders of the gopikas time and again and his waist cloth moved swiftly while dancing. Bhattathiri, at this point, calls out to the people (us) to pray to Lord, who is doing the rasaleela. 

The song reached higher octaves successively and dance matched the sweet music accordingly. The ornaments wore by them shifted from their places due to dancing and even that appeared beautiful. Devas, celestial women who were watching this feat without batting their eyelids, showered flowers and got engrossed in the rasaleela, driving them to divine ecstasy.

One of the gopikas who was slender like a flower creeper became tired of dancing and with drooping eyes fell on Krishna's attractive shoulders. Another one with falling hair locks on her forehead, took his hand, which had the fragrance of fresh sandal paste and kissed it aggressively in ecstasy with goosebumps all over her body. 

A virtuous gopika wearing dangling earrings, pressed her cheek against Krishna's cheek and enjoyed the nectar like juice of the betel chewed in his mouth. By dancing with Krishna, Lakshmi's sporting field and the most beautiful one in the universe, the gopikas were driven to higher states of intoxication and heights of supreme bliss.

The song concluded gradually and so are the percussion instruments. The gopikas however, were soaked in divine bliss were still seen dancing in circles, totally not conscious of themselves. The constellation of stars in the sky too stood still watching this feat. Bhattathiri went speechless at this point.

Krishna soaked the entire universe in divine bliss and ecstasy through his rasakreeda and completed it. Then entire body of the gopikas were glowing with drops of perspiration due to dancing and they were totally in pure consciousness of the Lord. Due to the virtues of gopikas, Krishna took as many forms as the number of gopikas present there and performed this great festivity.

The women of vraja were exhausted and hence Krishna gently took them to river Yamuna and sported with them. In the forest, surrounded by beautiful mountains with cool breeze and trees spreading fragrance of variety of flowers, Krishna gave those numerous women, the ecstatic joy.

Thus Krishna immersed the gopikas in the supreme consciousness and bliss in the midnight with his mercy, which otherwise was achievable only by  yogis. By this act, Krishna made even Brahma, Shiva and other gods to respect the gopikas. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord, whose beautiful form is achievable only by his devotees, to protect him. Lord Guruvayoorappan acknowledged his request immediately by his nod.
