NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 64 - GOVINDA PATTABHISHEKAM


Dasakam - 64 - Govinda Pattabhishekam








After witnessing several feats of Krishna including lifting of Govardhana mountains, Gopas considered Krishna as the Lord of the Universe. They prompted Nandagopan to check Krishna's horoscope to ascertain the facts. Nandagopan happily shared what Sage Garga has predicted about Krishna's glory, when Krishna was an infant. This made the Gopas show greater respect and love to him than before.

Indra, head of devas, after being disgraced, understood his folly and came down to earth with his divine cow, Kamadenu. With his pride shattered, Indra put his bejewelled crowned head at the lotus feet of Krishna and sang his praises. The divine cow Kamadenu with deep flowing love for Krishna, did Abhishekam with its milk, giving the name Govinda to Krishna. Elephant  Indra brought his elephant Iravatha carrying Ganga jal in his trunk and anointed Krishna with it with great delight. Krishna is the Lord for the three worlds. Having made him the Lord for the Gokulam, the vraja bhoomi attained prosperity equivalent to Vaikuntha, due to Krishna's grace and glory.

Once, Nandagopan after observing Ekadashi fasting, went to river yamuna on dwadashi day at a very early morning time. An asura, a servant of Varuna took away Nandagopan to Varuna loka. Krishna who came to earth in human form to kill the evil, went to Varuna loka to bring his father back. Surprised at Krishna's arrival at Varuna loka, God Varuna welcomed him with great respect and begged pardon for the servant's mistake. Krishna returned with his father to Gokula immediately. Nandagopan narrated the incident to the Gopas.

The gopas now firmly believed that Krishna is Lord Hari himself and requested him to show his abode, Vaikunta. The state of supreme bliss, form of Lord in Vaikunta which is not attainable easily was shown to Gopas. The great ocean of liberation was complete and overflowing with blissful nectar. Gopas soaked in that ocean for a very long time and were brought back to the conscious world later by Krishna.

No other incarnation revealed Lord's Vaikunta to the devotees with ease, but only in Krishna incarnation, when he came as a cowherd boy, the unattainable abode was revealed to devotees clearly like a gooseberry in one's palm. Bhattathiri worshipped such an incarnation of Lord Guruvayoorappan and requested to protect him from his afflictions. Lord immediately acknowledged his request.
