NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 59 - VENU GAANAM


Dasakam - 59 - Venu Gaanam








Krishna's form which was beautiful and fresh like kalaya flower evoked love and attracted the gopikas of the Brindavan day by day. They were captivated by his blissful form. Being extremely fascinated with Krishna, Gopikas longed to have his presence always and even the time he went to forest to tend cows caused the pain of separation to them.

Every morning after Krishna and Gopas left with their cows, Gopikas had their deer like eyes set in his direction, their mind set on him. They listened to the sound of Krishna's flute from afar and continued to exchange stories about his pastimes with each other, awaiting his arrival in the evening.
Krishna after reaching forest, took shelter under beautiful tree, stood cross legged and started to play his flute.

The emanating music from the flute attracted the celestial maidens. The cows and calves stood motionless hearing to it  and forgot to graze pastures, birds on the trees forgot to chirp and melted even the stones. Gopikas visualised his fingers moving deftly over the stops in the flute and his feet tapping rhythmically from Brindavan.

Gopikas considered the celestial damsels who could see his form always, the cows, calves, birds which were blessed with his form all through the day, the forest which carried his footprints are fortunate and blessed. The flute was in contact with Krishna's lips most of the time and enjoyed the nectar of his lips mostly. Gopikas lamented that even getting the nectar of his lips, left remaining for them, is far fetched and were in distress.

Like this, everyday with the grace of the Manmadhan, Gopikas were attracted to Krishna and this was indeed a blessing for them, as they could keep their mind fixed on him all the time. Suffering in the pain of separation from Krishna, Gopikas forgot their household duties and stayed lost in their love for him.

Love or attachment comes naturally to every being but salvation can be obtained only by perseverance, These Gopikas by virtue of being attached to the Lord, they were fortunate to attain love and salvation together. Wondering how fortunate they were, Bhattathiri prayed to Lord to cure him of his disease.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 56- KAALIYA GARVA SAMANAM AND BHAGAWATH ANUGRAHAM


Dasakam - 56- Kaaliya Garva Samanam and 
Bhagawath Anugraham








Krishna, for long time, danced on the raised hoods of Kaaliya with his lotus feet, for the tunes of  musical sound made by Devas on dundhubhi, a drum type instrument and songs rendered by the beautiful celestial damsels, with his ear drops too dancing along with him. Krishna played around for long time, dancing on the hoods with his lotus feet, clapping hands beautifully in rhythm with dancing on hoods of Kaaliya which raised up, leaving the ones which dropped down.

The hoods were getting crushed under Krishna's feet and soon Kaaliya became tired and expelled blood making the waters of the river Yamuna red. When all the hoods started to droop in fatigue, the serpent wives surrendered at the feet of Lord with humility. Having known the mighty valour of the Lord, they sang such praises of Lord, which were not even sung by even Devarishis and requested that their husband be spared.

Overcome with melting compassion, Krishna took his feet off Kaaliya, who immediately surrendered at Lord's lotus feet along with his wives. Krishna directed Kaaliya to go to Ramanaka Island, situated in the middle of the ocean and promised that he will not be disturbed by Garuda there. Respecting the words of Krishna, serpent king Kaaliya left to Ramanakam island with his wives immediately.

Krishna dressed himself with the priceless gems and jewels gifted by the wives of serpent king and reached the shore by the evening. Gopas greeted Krishna with tears of joy. It became dark by then and hence, Krishna and gopas could not return to Vraja. They decided to stay back in the forest for the night.

Gopas were sleeping on the banks of the river in the shelter of Krishna's feet. A forest fire engulfed them at the middle of night on all four sides. Gopas awakened by the forest fire, cried to Krishna for help. Krishna drank the fire to protect the gopas. It is no surprise as Lord's face itself is agni.

Gopas appreciated the fact that earlier, the Peethathvam or yellowness was only found in agni or fire as colour, but now due to his action, it can be perfectly called Peethathvam (act of drinking in the verb form). Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord Guruvayoorappan to remove his sins and afflictions.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 49 - BRINDAVANA PRAVESAM


Dasakam - 49 - Brindavana Pravesam






Gopas were not aware of Krishna's glory or greatness or that he is Lord himself. So they misconstrued the happenings like falling of trees and other incidents as bad omens, They decided to migrate to some other better place. A senior person among the Gopas, Upananda, prompted by Lord from within, suggested that there is a beautiful forest to the west of Gokula called the Brindavan.

Nandagopan along with other gopas converted their present dwelling, Bruhathvanam, in to a cowshed and with great enthusiasm set out to Brindavan. Yashoda lifted Krishna and sat on the cart and all the gopas followed the cart. The hooves of the cattle and the cart made beautiful sounds. Krishna was keeping the gopas and gopikas entertained with his pranks and sweet talks so much that the distance of travel did not matter to them at all.

Krishna was delighted to see Brindavan, which was covered with Kunda trees with flowers in full bloom. The grasslands looked like it is dispersed with green emerald stone everywhere. The gopas built their new houses in a form of half moon (semi circle) and stayed comfortably. Krishna along with gopa boys went around the forest admiring and enjoyed its beauty.

River Yamuna or Kaalindi, daughter of Kalinda was flowing along the winding ways with clear water. The swans on the river made beautiful cooing sounds. The thick growth of lotus flowers in the river appeared like the smiling face of Yamuna. Krishna saw the majestic Govardhana mountains which was radiating the light from the gems it contained. The mountain with its tall peaks touching sathyaloka was attractive with the resonant sounds made by the calls of peacock.

Krishna with his brother Balarama and all other Gopa children wandered all along the forest. He saw Kalindi river flowing full in curves following him everywhere as if she was trying to meet him in solitude. Bhattathiri prayed to Krishna who was spending the days, tending the calves, along with his brother Balaram and other gopa boys in that beautiful Brindhavan, to cure him of all his afflictions.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 46 - REVELATION OF COSMIC FORM


Dasakam - 46 - Revelation of Cosmic Form






Once Krishna after taking feed from yashoda, was lying flat on back on her lap. He yawned and for a moment, Yashoda saw the entire universe in his mouth.  Later, Krishna was playing with his friends. He plucked fruits promising to share it with the friends but cheated them by eating all of them. Angered friends came to mother yasodha and complained that Krishna ate mud. 

Lord consumes earth, water and everything during pralaya or deluge. If he eats mud, nothing can happen to him. However Yashoda is innocent of the fact that Krishna is the Lord himself and feared that he will fall sick if he eats mud and got angry for the act. She repeatedly asked Krishna if he has eaten mud, but Krishna smilingly denied it again and again, very assertively.

Yashoda told Krishna that Balarama and friends are confirming that he has eaten mud. She asked him to either accept the mistake or open his mouth and show to her. Krishna opened his mouth slowly, like a lotus in full bloom. Yashoda wanted to see the mud little atleast in his mouth, Krishna did not want to disappoint his mother. He showed Earth and all worlds in his little mouth. 

Yashoda saw forest, ocean, clouds, skies and rasaathalam in his mouth. One another side, she could see people, asuras, devas. Not only these, Yashoda saw Lord Sri Hari reclining on the snake bed and lying in the milky ocean in the Sri Vaikuntam. At the same time, she also saw him as a small child showing his mouth to her inside his mouth.

Yashoda saw all the worlds and Nandagokula, and in that she saw Krishna with mouth wide open and in that again the many worlds and again in it another Nandagokula and the infinitude of the Universe. For a moment, Yashoda gained the enlightenment that Krishna is paramatma himself. Immediately Krishna showed affection and deluded her to think that he is her son and got on to her lap, asking her to feed him. 

Bhattathiri requested this wondrous child to protect him.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 45 - BALA LEELA

Dasakam - 45 - Bala Leela






Balarama and Krishna started to crawl on their hands and knees. They were interested in hearing to the rhythmic sound made by their anklets put in their beautiful lotus flower like legs and hence crawled with great briskness. The duo smiled exposing their beautiful new teeth, hair locks falling on their faces and the lotus like feet, armlets slipping down to the wrists, becoming like bracelets were very attractive for the onlookers.

The people who watched the two crawl, followed them everywhere. Both ran away after giving an enchanting smile. When people stopped following both, the duo turned their lotus faces back, casting a look, giving incredible joy to the people. While moving fast, Krishna would fall down and get smeared and tainted by mud, Sages in the heaven witnessed these pranks of the Lord and worshipped them. Rohini and Yashoda came quickly and lifted them up carefully and embraced them, kissed them again and again with great joy.

The soft hearted Yashoda took the baby Krishna on her lap and fed him. While taking the feed, Krishna would stop in between and smile at Yashoda charmingly,  adding immense joy to her. How fortunate was the mother Yashoda?! Soon Krishna started to walk and started to run and play with the Gopa boys in the neighbourhood. With the child-like restlessness, Krishna ran behind pets, cows and calves in the houses and Gopa boys with great difficulty restrained Krishna from doing these pranks.

Krishna and Balarama went everywhere together. Gopikas were watching and  following them, leaving their household chores, children, family behind. This became the routine for the gopikas. Krishna loved the freshly made butter given by gopikas. Sometimes Krishna sang sweetly or danced graciously, captivating the Gopikas. With lot of affection, Gopikas served him with freshly boiled milk which he drank with delight.

Lord having begged Mahabali for food in his Vamana avatharam, now in this krishna avatharam decided not to beg gopikas for butter but decided to silently steal from their pots. His clever tricks delighted the gopikas more than making them angry. Krishna along with stealing butter and ghee from gopikas, stole their hearts as well and immersed them in the ocean of Bliss.

Bhattathiri prayed to such chitta-chor Lord Guruvayoorappan to remove his afflictions.
