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.
