NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 13 - SLAYING OF HIRANYAAKSHA


Dasakam - 13 - Slaying of Hiranyaksha





Hiranyaaksha was so huge in size that ocean waters were only up to his knees. He frantically searched and located Lord after being tipped by Sage Narada that Lord has already found and taken Earth in his tusks. 

Surprised by the look of Lord as wild boar, he got ready to fight . Lord lowered down Goddess Earth carefully on to water so that he can give a mighty fight back.

Hearing the sound of maces, various gods assembled to witness the fight. Brahma cautioned Lord to kill Hiranyaaksha before night fall. Demon knocked down Lord's mace only to be confronted by his Sudarshana chakra. Hiranyaksha tried many feats of warfare only to lose all before the Lord as he is above Maya. He then resorted to punching with fists when Varaha, gave a deathly blow with his toe at the base of the ear.

Hiranyaaksha fell at the Lord's feet, Sages and Gods delighted at this asura vadham and sang hyms in appreciation of Varaha Murthy :- Lord's skin are the Vedic Mantras, hair are the 'kush' grass, eyes are the ghee, feet are the four sacrificing priests, face is 'sruk',( the ladle for sacrifice) and  stomach is the 'Ida' (the vessel which holds the sacrificial ingredients), tongue is the soma pot, ears are the chamasas (the vessel which holds the sacrificial remnants) and  virility is soma, neck are the sacrifices called Upasat, (the subsidiary rites) and the entire body is the embodiment of the holy Yagna.

Pleased with the hyms on his countless glory, Lord concluded purpose of his avatar and retired to Vaikunth. Bhattathiri requested Lord Guruvayoorappan to be pleased with him, and help him overcome his ailments and Lord acknowledged his request immediately.

Note: It is mentioned in Srimad Bhagawatham that whoever chants or hears this Varaha avatharam will get rid of Brahmahatthi Dosham, remedy for which is not easily found in Vedas. other benefits include material comforts, fame, long life and ultimately whoever listens to this will be protected by Lord himself at their death bed.

Lyrics of Dasakam 13


हिरण्याक्षं तावत्-वरद भवदन्वेषण परं
चरन्तं सांवर्ते पयसि निज-जङ्घा-परिमिते ।

शनै:-ऊचे नन्दन् दनुजमपि निन्दन्-तव बलम् ॥१॥
