NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 66 - RASAKREEDAI - RASALEELA BEGINS



Dasakam - 66 - Rasakreedai - Rasaleela Begins







The beautiful eyed gopikas approached Krishna with lot of love. Krishna had decided to fulfill the desire of those beautiful women, however initially spoke to them as if he was not in favour. Sages had assembled in the skies to see the rasaleela. Krishna started to advise the duties of the good family women to the gopikas loudly so that even the assembled divine sages in sky could hear. Bhattathiri at this point reminds that one should follow the words of the Lord, which are always in accordance with dharma and not try to practice few of his pure minded actions as they cannot always be classified under right or wrong category with our little knowledge.

Hearing Krishna's unfavourable words, Gopikas felt sad and helpless and requested him not to forsake them. Hearing their cries and rantings, Krishna with his great mercy and compassion towards them indulged himself in the sports of passion with the gopikas in the moonlit banks of Yamuna.

The banks of river Yamuna looked beautiful in the moonlight. Gopikas offered a seat for Krishna made with their drape and he sat on it. Krishna held their hands and spoke sweetly and playfully and embraced them. Gopikas were immensely pleased and happy. Thus Krishna fulfilled the desires of gopikas, as promised by him on the day he snatched their clothes and scared them, while they were sporting in the river. Gopikas were transported to an ecstatic world with Krishna's ever enchanting smile and by embracing him who is the Lord of three worlds.

Bhattathiri mentions that when one gets separated from Krishna, it causes unbearable pain to the heart. When one is with him, he is an absolute embodiment of love. When in union with him like these Gopikas, they reach a state of extreme delight and bliss. Addressing Lord as the one who always yearns to be one with Radha, Bhattathiri requested Lord to take mercy on him and remove his sufferings. Lord Guruvayoorappan acknowledged his request promptly.
