NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 92 - KARMA MISRA BHAKTHI

Dasakam - 92 - Karma Misra Bhakthi






Vedas have prescribed certain actions, which have to be done without expecting fruits of it. Bhattadiri requested mind strength to perform all such actions and surrender actions and their results to Lord's Lotus feet and attain freedom from action. He did not wish to do any action which is not listed in the vedas by his mind, intellect or speech. If by mistake, he committed any action not mentioned in vedas, he would surrender that karma also to Lord.

Singing glory of Lord through Bhajans is also a method of Karma yoga. Bhattathiri wished to pray Lord in the form of a Murthy/Vigraha made of mud, sand or any suitable material or just visualise Lord's Swaroopam in his mind and do pooja with flowers, sandalwood and perfumes, which are affordable to him and earn his blessings. If women and people of lower varna are not privileged to hear to Lord's  glories and pastimes and chant Lord's names, they are still subjected to Lord's mercy. Bhattathiri says he is only worried about those people who were privileged to worship Lord and yet are not peaceful with themselves. He prays to the Lord that he should not be like those privileged ones who perform Yajnas for profession but not devoted to the Lord, turn proud and arrogant due to their fame, obtained out of their karmas.

This world comprises of undevoted people who laugh at the devotees and say that these devotees, in order to hide their misconduct, are chanting names like Rama and Krishna. Such people accuse the devotees of hindering the fame due to them. They go to the extent of calling the devoted brethren as hypocrites and laugh at them for worshipping Lord always. Bhattathiri prayed to Lord that never should he become like those undevoted people.

People worshipped Lord in white colour as Brahmacharya and pleased him through their meditation and penance in krita Yuga. In treta Yuga, Lord was worshipped as clad with sruka and sruva appearing in red colour like an yagna purusha. In Dwapara Yuga, Lord was worshipped as one with chakra and mace and with a black or dark coloured complexion. In Kali Yuga, Lord who is blue in complexion is worshipped through Nama sankeerthanam. The Kali is better than other yugas, because with small effort through the ways of Namasankeerthanam, one can attain the best fruit of life, the Moksham. Therefore people who were born in treta and dwapara yuga would like to be born in kali. Bhattathiri requested Lord to help the people including him born in kali to be not attracted to material desires.

In this Kali, there will more people devoted to Lord and they will be mostly living in the Dravidian land. In that too, they would live along the banks of Kaveri, Tamiraparani, Vaigai and the banks of those rivers flowing towards west. Bhattathiri requested to be born in such regions and be devoted to Lord all the time, never should be bonded emotionally through desires and have a complete devotion. In olden days, King Pareekshit took his sword to kill Kali who was detrimental to dharma. Since he knew the essence of truth, he spared the Kali, as it had some good qualities as well. Only in Kali, service to God gives the best benefit sooner than even the sins. Even Kali is scared to afflict Lord's devotees. Only, before one turns to be Lord's devotee, he perhaps afflict them with diseases and only for that sake, Bhattathiri requested Lord to punish the Kali.

Great Saints have advised that in Kali yuga, Ganga, Gita, Gayathri, Tulsi, Gopichandanam, Shalagrama pooja, Ekadashi fasting and eight aksharas denoting Lord's Nama increases Lord's grace and grants moksham quickly. Hence Bhattathiri requested Lord to make him intensely interested in these eight things. If one abandons all actions and take a total surrender at Lord's feet, he becomes relieved from any debt towards Gods, Sages, Pitrus and is no longer a servant to them. Lord resides in such person and removes all his sins. Bhattathiri requested Lord to remove all his afflictions caused due to sins committed by him. Lord Guruvayoorappan acknowledged his request immediately by nodding his head.

PS: Doing Bhakthi while discharging duties as per the varnashrama without material desires and surrendering the fruits of action to Lord - Karma Misra Bhakthi
