NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 75 - KAMSA VADHAM


Dasakam - 75 - Kamsa Vadham






Early next morning, the fear-stricken Kamsa ordered the commencement of the wrestling match by beating the drums. The kings took their respective seats, Nandagopan went upstairs to watch the happening from balcony and as soon as Kamsan also went upstairs, Krishna and Balarama, dressed well in clothes and ornaments approached the entrance to the arena. Kuvalayapida, an angry elephant obstructed them from entering the arena. Krishna shooed away the elephant by calling it a sinner. The cruel minded and angry mahout prompted the elephant to attack Krishna. The elephant came with great speed and caught Krishna by its tusks. Krishna gave a hard blow to its forehead and disappeared between its legs. Later he came out smilingly.

The sages who meditate upon Krishna, would find him to be in their grasp and suddenly would be missing, similarly he was playing sport with the elephant. He would allow it to catch him and suddenly wriggle out and go far. He even acted as though he fell on the ground. The elephant rushed towards Krishna and immediately he pulled out its life along with its tusks from its root. Below the tusks were some beautiful pearls which Krishna collected and entrusted it to his friends and asked them to make it in to beautiful necklace and gift it to Radha on his behalf.

Krishna carried the tusks on the shoulder and walked into the arena with Balarama. The eyes of all seated there were attracted to the radiance of Krishna and to his auspicious form. The people exclaimed that Nandan was highly fortunate, some said it is Yashoda who was fortunate and some declared it is them, the onlookers who were fortunate in all the three worlds to have the eyes to see Krishna. The Brahman itself, the infinite supreme consciousness and bliss which shone amongst Gopas in real and physical form was not recognised by them. At the appropriate time, many realised Krishna as Brahman and got their sins relieved instantly. They joyfully narrated all his deeds and actions which they remembered.

As per Kamsa's order, great boxer Mushtika and champion wrestler Chanooran started attacking Krishna and Balarama. They created loud noise and blowing their fists fiercely, threw up, pushed down, dragged each other mutually, many times. Even before death, Chanooran attained bondage and release many times in Krishna's hands. The onlookers exclaimed that Balarama and Krishna are tender bodied while the asuras were tough bodies. They wanted to leave the arena not wanting to witness that unequal contest. Just then, Krishna caught Chanooran by his arm, whirled him around and threw him dead on the ground. At the same time, Mushtika was crushed to death by Balarama. Watching the feat, rest of the wrestlers ran away from the arena in fear.

Kamsa stopped the drums and not knowing what to do next, ordered Nanda, Vasudevan and Ugrasena, who are all respectable people to be killed and also chase away Krishna, who is omnipresent, to far off place. On hearing the evil minded Kamsa's words, Krishna leaped like Garuda from the mountain and reached to Kamsa seated on the throne in the balcony. Kamsa came near Krishna whirling his sword and though he resisted, Krishna caught him forcibly.

Krishna crushed the joints of Kamsa and pushed him down and hurled on the top of him. Immediately Devas, Gods and celestial angels showered flowers on Krishna. Bhattathiri mentioned here that Kamsa was constantly thinking of Krishna due to fear and because of having focused his mind on Krishna and his whereabouts always, he attained Moksha. In the previous birth also, when Kamsa was Kaalanemi, he was killed by Krishna and the remembrance of that by Kamsa paved way for moksha in this birth.

Krishna killed eight brothers of Kamsa immediately and released his parents Devaki and Vasudevan from the Jail and offered his salutations to them. He made Kamsa's father Ugrasena as king and gave the Yadavas whatever they desired and made them happy. Krishna made friends with Uddhava, the best among devotees and who had received his educations from Deva Guru Brihaspati. Bhattathiri worshipped that Lord who happily stayed in Mathura to protect him from his ailments and was duly acknowledged by Lord Guruvayoorappan from the sanctum.


Lyrics of Dasakam 75
