NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 65 - RASAKREEDAI - GOPIKAS RUSHING TO THE FOREST


Dasakam - 65 - Rasakreedai - 

Gopikas rushing to the Forest










Krishna had promised gopikas at the end of the Kathyaayini pooja that he would spend time with them on the moon-lit autumn nights in the banks of river yamuna. One cold night, in the luminescence of full moon, in the forest on the banks of the river Yamuna, Krishna took his flute and started to play sweetly. The ascending and descending seven musical notes that emanated from the flute enchanted the whole world and hearing it from far, Gopikas instantly got attracted to it.

When flute was played by Krishna, few gopikas were taking care of their babies, few others were serving food to their husbands, few others were engaged in household chores. The gopikas captivated by Krishna's flute, abandoned all the work and rushed to the forest to see him. Some of the gopikas dressed themselves well adorning jewellery. Some rushed half adorned with jewels, carrying rest in the hand and these gopikas looked more beautiful to Krishna's eyes.

One charming faced Gopika in hurry to meet Krishna, put the necklace in her hip and waistband on her neck, as if to clearly indicate the attractiveness of her hips. One in her excitement to see Krishna, forgot her drape and carried only her intense love. Few Gopikas were prevented from leaving the house by their husbands, relatives. They meditated on Krishna with such a deep devotion that they left their physical bodies and merged with Krishna. They were the most lucky ones to attain salvation.

Gopikas merely rushed to Krishna abandoning their homes not thinking him as Paramatma but thinking that he is their lover, still they attained state of liberation which even the divine sages cannot attain easily. Those gopikas soaked their mind in the supreme bliss and meditated on it with great difficulty, that they attained salvation so easily.

The beautiful damsels of vraja were looking at the smiling and compassionate face of Krishna who showed unlimited mercy. Bhattathiri worshipped the one and only Lord who steals the heart of all and requested him to cure him of his afflictions.
