NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 84 - SAMANTA PANCHAKA

 Dasakam - 84 - Samanta Panchaka





On an occasion of Solar Eclipse, Krishna entrusted Dwaraka to Kritavarma and Aniruddha and went to Samanta Panchaka along with yadavas and their womenfolk. Krishna took dip in the holy water to sanctify it for the benefit of human race. He gave gifts and money to Brahmins and interacted with Pandavas and Kauravas. Draupadi who was devoted to Krishna met Rukmini and Satyabhama and spent time with them. She came to know from Rukmini and Satyabhama, how Krishna married them and shared it with other women happily.

Nandagopan and other gopas had also come to the holy place. Krishna met them, honoured them and spent time with them. Gopikas, who were caught in the pangs of separation from Krishna, were excited to see him again. Krishna made the gopikas happy as before. He went to Radha, hugged her and told her that he could not meet her only because of the continuous attack by the enemies and fight. Radha was overwhelmed and forgot herself in his affection. 

After spending good times with Gopikas and Radha as before, he made them realize that he is form of supreme bliss consciousness and the Supreme Brahman, their innermost self. When Uddhava advised them before by meeting them at Gokula, they experienced mixed feeling of joy and sorrow of separation. After Krishna advised the philosophical knowledge of Brahman, they experienced only Supreme bliss at the thoughts of him.

Krishna's father Vasudeva requested Sage Narada and Saint Vyasa to advice him the good deeds to perform to overcome sins. They just laughed and told him when Lord only is his son and he is staying with him, he need not do anything more. Still for his satisfaction, they arranged for an yagna. 

The Yagna began and was happening well. It was well attended by friends. Yadavas honoured the Gopas who came for the ritual. Thus Gopas enjoyed the association with Krishna for those three months. After the completion of Yagna, Krishna went to Radha and hugged her tightly. Hebid her farewell after ascertaining that she is happy and not affected by pains of separation from him anymore and returned to Dwaraka. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord, who removed the miseries of Gopas, gopikas and Radha, to remove his ailments.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 76 - UDDHAVAR DHOOTHYAM


Dasakam - 76 - Uddhavar Dhoothyam





Krishna went to Guru Sandeepani ashram along with Balarama and mastered all arts in sixty four days. As gurudakshina, he brought back alive, Guru's dead son from Yama's abode and gave back to the guru and Guru's wife. Krishna returned back to Mathura sounding his Panchajanya, the conch.

Meanwhile, the gopikas in vraja were constantly thinking of Krishna and were soaked in the bliss all the time. Remembering their love, Krishna felt overwhelmed and decided to send Uddhava as a messenger to Gokulam, thereby creating an opportunity for Uddhava to understand the depth of devotion of the gopikas. Uddhava reached Gokulam by evening. He spent the night with Nanda and Yashoda enquiring about their well being and made them happy by describing the great deeds of Krishna. In the morning, seeing the chariot in front of Nanda's house, gopikas thought Krishna had returned and later got to know that an emissary of Krishna has come. They came to meet Krishna's friend Uddhava, abandoning their chores at home.

Gopikas saw Uddhava dressed in costumes and jewelry similar to that of Krishna. They were reminded of the leelas performed with Krishna before and became speechless. They forgot themselves and others and slowly composed themselves and started to speak with the choked voice. They asked if the merciless Krishna sent Uddhava to just meet his parents, Nanda and Yashoda. They wanted to know the whereabouts of Krishna who must have become the beloved one for Mathura girls, by then. Unable to forget the nectar like body of Krishna and the embraces, the funny talks and actions and the love he had given them, the gopikas lamented that it is very unlikely that they can forget him.

Gopikas remembered how during Rasaleela dance, Krishna's beautiful hair had loosened and dishevelled while his body glowed with sweat drops. They requested Uddhava to tell Krishna that they wanted to embrace Krishna and experience it once again. Uddhava imparted the spiritual message sent by Krishna to the grief struck gopikas and made them come back to their normal selves. Uddhava spent few more days in vraja, narrating various incidents about Krishna and made the gopikas more happier.

Uddhava noticed that in Gokulam, only songs related to Krishna leelas were heard in every house while they did their household chores. Their talks were always centered around Krishna. The people talked about Krishna even in their dreams. Their actions imitated Krishna as they tried to personify him. Uddhava was left wonderstruck and stunned by these observations. Next, Uddhava met Radha and told her, how Krishna was always reminded of her. Krishna would talk about things Radha liked, the way she use to talk. If Uddhava was silent anytime, Krishna would ask why he was silent like his Radha. By conveying these, Uddhava made the lotus eyed Radha very happy.

Krishna's message through Uddhava to Radha and gopikas was that he was unable to come to vraja due to his preoccupation and not due to his reduced love for them. Their devotion towards him was increasing in their separation and hence there is no need to grieve. Krishna will meet them soon and bless them with the supreme bliss after which union or separation from him will mean the same to them. Hearing these assuring words, gopikas were freed from grief. 

The devotion of gopikas were the rarest and best in the whole world. No one has ever heard nor seen such heights of devotion to the Lord. Uddhava felt that mere prostration to their feet is enough to attain salvation than doing penance or studying scriptures

He returned to Mathura completely soaked in the bliss after meeting the gopikas. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord who was happy with Uddhava's realisation about gopikas devotion, to protect him from him afflictions.

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.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 69 - RASAKREEDA VARNANAI

Dasakam - 69 - Rasakreeda Varnanai







Narayana Bhattathiri closed his eyes in meditation and thinking, how a seven year old boy could have done rasakreedai with the young women and continued his bhajans. Hearing the rhythmic beats, he opened his eyes. To his amazement, Lord was enacting the rasakreedai at the sanctum of Guruvayoor temple and Bhattathiri continued singing in the meter corresponding to the rhythm of the dance enacted.

With peacock feathers adorning his hair lock and dancing fish shaped ear-drops, pearl ornaments and variety of garlands on his neck, sandal paste on chest and golden ring around his hip over the yellow silk dress, stone studded shining anklets on the feet; Lord danced spreading his sweet fragrance everywhere. Bhattathiri meditated on the above form of the Lord.

The gopikas, who were dressed in their best with beautiful ear-drops, surrounded Lord (Guruvayoorappa/Krishna) Padmanabha, the consort of Lakshmi. Krishna took many forms and moved in such a way that he was there between two gopikas and one gopika between his two forms alternately. Raasa means dance or it can also be taken as enjoying the sweet divine form of the Lord. 

Sage Narada pleased with the rasakreeda enacted at Sri Guruvayoorappan sanctum, invited devas, apsaras and beautiful damsels to witness the most beautiful dance. Hearing his call from afar, devas and the celestial women dressed in their best, adorned with jewelry rushed from heaven and gathered along the skies.

The music emanating from the flute was showcasing the beautiful key notes and alapanas of the raga of the song played. Matching to the tune, Krishna danced with rhythmic foot steps and he was accompanied by gopikas who were making matching sounds with their bangles. Krishna was sporting his lotus like hand on the shoulders of the gopikas time and again and his waist cloth moved swiftly while dancing. Bhattathiri, at this point, calls out to the people (us) to pray to Lord, who is doing the rasaleela. 

The song reached higher octaves successively and dance matched the sweet music accordingly. The ornaments wore by them shifted from their places due to dancing and even that appeared beautiful. Devas, celestial women who were watching this feat without batting their eyelids, showered flowers and got engrossed in the rasaleela, driving them to divine ecstasy.

One of the gopikas who was slender like a flower creeper became tired of dancing and with drooping eyes fell on Krishna's attractive shoulders. Another one with falling hair locks on her forehead, took his hand, which had the fragrance of fresh sandal paste and kissed it aggressively in ecstasy with goosebumps all over her body. 

A virtuous gopika wearing dangling earrings, pressed her cheek against Krishna's cheek and enjoyed the nectar like juice of the betel chewed in his mouth. By dancing with Krishna, Lakshmi's sporting field and the most beautiful one in the universe, the gopikas were driven to higher states of intoxication and heights of supreme bliss.

The song concluded gradually and so are the percussion instruments. The gopikas however, were soaked in divine bliss were still seen dancing in circles, totally not conscious of themselves. The constellation of stars in the sky too stood still watching this feat. Bhattathiri went speechless at this point.

Krishna soaked the entire universe in divine bliss and ecstasy through his rasakreeda and completed it. Then entire body of the gopikas were glowing with drops of perspiration due to dancing and they were totally in pure consciousness of the Lord. Due to the virtues of gopikas, Krishna took as many forms as the number of gopikas present there and performed this great festivity.

The women of vraja were exhausted and hence Krishna gently took them to river Yamuna and sported with them. In the forest, surrounded by beautiful mountains with cool breeze and trees spreading fragrance of variety of flowers, Krishna gave those numerous women, the ecstatic joy.

Thus Krishna immersed the gopikas in the supreme consciousness and bliss in the midnight with his mercy, which otherwise was achievable only by  yogis. By this act, Krishna made even Brahma, Shiva and other gods to respect the gopikas. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord, whose beautiful form is achievable only by his devotees, to protect him. Lord Guruvayoorappan acknowledged his request immediately by his nod.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 68 - RASKREEDAI - GOPIKA GEETHAM


Dasakam - 68 - Rasakreedai - Gopika Geetham








Krishna appeared before the Gopikas all of a sudden and seeing him, they stood like a statue and fully drowned in the immortal bliss. One of the Gopika took his lotus flower like hand and placed it on her bosom and stood like that for a long time with her body experiencing goosebumps.

One of the gopikas, took his arm and put it around her neck as if she was trying to avoid the vital breath going out of her neck in the pain of separation. One another Gopika, out of her extreme love, without inhibition, took the chewed betel leaf from Krishna's mouth and put it in hers and felt she has attained the supreme bliss.

One of them stood gazing at Krishna with anger in her tearful eyes, as if to ask him the reason for his abandoning of her in the forest. All the gopikas made a seat for Krishna in the banks of river Yamuna with their upper drape tainted with saffron colour. Krishna sat on it with all splendour and shining glory.

Gopikas questioned Krishna as to what type of mercy he is showing to them. While some may show mercy to all, some only to people surrendering to them, Krishna didn't even show compassion to gopikas who gave up house, family, everything for Krishna and surrendered to him.

Krishna smiled at them enchantingly and asked them not to suspect that he is hard-hearted and said that he was afraid of losing their love. He disappeared so that he can make their minds fixed on him continuously. He promised to Gopikas, that none other than them are dear to him and so asked them to enjoy the beautiful moon-lit night along the river Yamuna with him happily without any hurdle.

Gopikas joy found no limit at his declaration and they sported all night along with full of enthusiasm. Bhattadiri prayed to the Lord who had sported Rasaleela, to end his sufferings and was duly acknowledged by Sri Guruvayoorappan.


PS: This is the equivalent of Gopika geetham in Srimad Bhagawatham.

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.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 66 - RASAKREEDAI - RASALEELA BEGINS



Dasakam - 66 - Rasakreedai - Rasaleela Begins







The beautiful eyed gopikas approached Krishna with lot of love. Krishna had decided to fulfill the desire of those beautiful women, however initially spoke to them as if he was not in favour. Sages had assembled in the skies to see the rasaleela. Krishna started to advise the duties of the good family women to the gopikas loudly so that even the assembled divine sages in sky could hear. Bhattathiri at this point reminds that one should follow the words of the Lord, which are always in accordance with dharma and not try to practice few of his pure minded actions as they cannot always be classified under right or wrong category with our little knowledge.

Hearing Krishna's unfavourable words, Gopikas felt sad and helpless and requested him not to forsake them. Hearing their cries and rantings, Krishna with his great mercy and compassion towards them indulged himself in the sports of passion with the gopikas in the moonlit banks of Yamuna.

The banks of river Yamuna looked beautiful in the moonlight. Gopikas offered a seat for Krishna made with their drape and he sat on it. Krishna held their hands and spoke sweetly and playfully and embraced them. Gopikas were immensely pleased and happy. Thus Krishna fulfilled the desires of gopikas, as promised by him on the day he snatched their clothes and scared them, while they were sporting in the river. Gopikas were transported to an ecstatic world with Krishna's ever enchanting smile and by embracing him who is the Lord of three worlds.

Bhattathiri mentions that when one gets separated from Krishna, it causes unbearable pain to the heart. When one is with him, he is an absolute embodiment of love. When in union with him like these Gopikas, they reach a state of extreme delight and bliss. Addressing Lord as the one who always yearns to be one with Radha, Bhattathiri requested Lord to take mercy on him and remove his sufferings. Lord Guruvayoorappan acknowledged his request promptly.
