NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 54 - KAALIYA TAKES REFUGE IN YAMUNA



Dasakam - 54 - Kaaliya takes refuge in Yamuna








Long ago, there was a sage called Soubhari, a devotee of Lord, who did penance to have Lord's vision, by immersing himself in the river Yamuna/Kaalindi for twelve years. During his stay in the river, he got attached to the fishes living there. Once when Lord's mount, Garuda was hungry and ate fish present in the Kalindi river, Shoubari noticed this and overwhelmed with pity for the fishes, cursed Garuda that if he ever came to the river to eat fishes he would die.

A powerful serpent, Kaaliya was very proud due to the power of his poison. He ate offerings kept for Garuda, the enemy of Serpents. Angry with Kaliya, Garuda took refuge at the lotus feet of Lord and then attacked Kaaliya with his wings, overpowered him and chased him out. Knowing that Garuda will not come to the river Yamuna due to Shoubari's Curse, Kaaliya took refuge in it. 

After Kaaliya started to live in the river, the water turned poisonous.  The vegetation in the forest began to wither, birds flying over the river, fell dead inhaling the air around the river. Lord's heart melted in compassion and was moved with the plight of the creatures around the river.

On one hot summer day, Krishna went to the interior of the forest on the banks of the river Yamuna without his brother Balarama. The cows and cowherds which felt very thirsty drank the river water, soon fell dead on the ground. Krishna felt pity for the cows and Gopas and by his merciful glances, which were like showering nectar in to their body and revived them back to life. 

Gopas got up from ground wondering what is flowing in their various parts of the body to make it cool. Remembering various divine acts of Krishna, they concluded that all this must be one of his pranks and hugged him and thanked Krishna for saving them. Even the cows felt grateful and surrounded Krishna and kept mooing, shedding tears of joy.

Gopas had goosebumps all over their body and was experiencing a bliss which could not be expressed. Wondering if it was all due to the poison, the gopas fell at Krishna's feet and praised and prayed to him. Thus Lord revived his devotees by his merciful glances and rendered them devoid of any disease. Bhattathiri prayed to that Lord Guruvayoorappan to protect him and cure him of his disease with his merciful glances and Lord acknowledged it promptly.
