NARAYANEEYAM - DASAKAM - 67 - RASAKREEDAI - GOPIKA GARVA PRASAMANAM


Dasakam - 67 - Gopika Garva Prasamanam








Krishna sported with the gopikas on the moon-lit banks of Yamuna in the autumn and they were drowned in the ecstasy and supreme bliss. They were immersed in the bliss so much that they fell victim to pride and self-importance. Each one of the gopikas thought that Krishna, the Lord of three worlds, Lord of Lakshmi who charms the whole world is engrossed in her. Krishna in order to curb their pride and later bless them, disappeared all of a sudden.

Krishna identified Radha who had no pride or self-importance in her heart and took her along with him to a far off place and sported with her. After Krishna disappeared, gopikas fell in to the pangs of separation. Together all of them, started to search for Krishna in the forest and were grief-stricken as they could not find him.

Gopikas frantically cried out to every tree, creeper, fruit, flower which came in their way if they had seen their lotus eyed Krishna. They were totally devoted to the Lord and kept lamenting. One of the gopika cried out that she saw Krishna in her imaginative vision and this doubled the grief for the rest. Gopikas identified themselves with Krishna so much that they started to imitate Krishna in talk and actions.

While gopikas kept searching for Krishna, they found Radha rani, who went with Krishna initially but eventually got separated from him due to her pride. Then together all of them went searching for Krishna, till late evening. Then all of them, came back to the banks of Yamuna and kept singing praises and talking about Krishna's glories.

Krishna, the ocean of mercy, appeared before the grief-struck women of vraja, sporting an attractive smile with mercy in his eyes. Gopikas could not really believe their eyes when Krishna re-appeared before them and wept in joy and relief from the pain of separation. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord, who removed the miseries of gopikas, to protect him from his disease and afflictions.
