NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 74 - MATHURAPURI PRAVESAM


Dasakam - 74 - Mathurapuri Pravesam






Krishna reached Mathura by noon. He reached the garden in the outskirts and took lunch along with his friends. Then he proceeded to go around the city. Men and women who had heard of his mighty actions and attributes were waiting eagerly to see his swaroopam. Bhattathiri asked Lord at this juncture, if Krishna was tied and pulled to the main road of city, by the rope of good deeds of those people living in Mathura. Lord Guruvayoorappan immediately agreed with Bhattathiri's words.

Women in Mathura gathered around him. They were similar to Krishna in every respect. They were affectionate and glorious similar to his radiating red lotus feet. They had breasts similar to Krishna's lustre of rain bearing clouds. They were running all around to catch glimpse of Krishna similar to the movement of his eyes. The women were decked with beautiful flowers similar to the necklaces covered chest of Krishna. The women appeared majestic and glowed with purity similar to Krishna's pure and majestic form, with the charming smile. The women wore ornaments in their tresses similar to Krishna's crest which was adorned with peacock feather. (Here one should understand that people of Mathura had stayed focused on Krishna's form and glory all the time, that they looked very much like him)

Krishna walked past the city viewing these beautiful women by side glances, making them happy. People gathered in large numbers in awe and joy to have Krishna's darshan. At that time, Krishna saw a washer man carrying clothes and asked him if he can lend him a robe suitable to wear. The washer man arrogantly replied that it belongs to King and how can he give it to him and asked Krishna to go away. Krishna cut off his head instantly with his hand and due to Krishna's touch, washer man attained salvation immediately.

Another washer man gave him suitable robes to wear and Krishna granted him, his abode Vaikuntam immediately for his good deed. Bhattathiri wondered who else other than Lord, know the virtues of the Jeevathmas. One garland maker adorned Krishna with beautiful garlands and sang his praise. Krishna wanted to give a boon to him but he only requested the boon of always being devoted to Krishna. With his answer, Krishna was pleased and blessed him with more devotion and wealth.

There was a beautiful women with lotus eyes but with a hunch back whom Krishna next met and she welcomed him and smeared sandal paste on him and his friends. Krishna, in return, made her love for him, intense and inorder to make her outer physique reflect her inner purity, Krishna held her chin by his right hand and put his arms around her back and stepped on her foot and made her erect as a normal person transforming her to a beautiful women in the world. 

The people of Mathura who were devoid of even a small amount of sin, stood along the road offering betel leaves, flowers whatever they could and offered their salutations to Krishna. Bhattathiri exclaimed at this point that had he stood there in the Mathura with joined palms in salutation when Krishna was entering and offered him what he could, similar to the fortunate people of Mathura, perhaps he would not be born and suffering from ailments and sorrow this day.

Krishna told the lady who offered him sandal paste, that he will come to her house soon and proceeded to the gate of the Mathura fort. She was looking at the direction Krishna went, for a long time with fear. From the jubilation of the people, Devaki inferred that Krishna has arrived and became immensely happy. Milk started to flow from her breasts similar to how Krishna's fame reached Mathura even before he did.

Krishna entered the festive city and went directly to the ammunition room where the bow was kept. Seeing Krishna's radiance, might and beauty, the guards could not deny entry to him. Even before the guards rush to prevent Krishna from touching or taking the bow, which was decorated with flowers, he had already taken it by hand, strung and broke it too.

The terrific breaking sound of the bow was like the prelude to good and auspicious thing to happen the next day, the Kamsa vadham and sounded like the beat of the drum which symbolises victory. It caused horripilation to the Devas. Kamsa trembled in fear and it was further increased by the cries of the guards who were hit by the broken bow.

Krishna made the good people happy and scared the evil ones. He then went around the city and viewed its prosperity and returned to the camp in the garden by late evening. He spent the evening with friend Sridhaama and was sharing his sorrow due to his separation from Radha. Later Krishna went to take rest, feeling happy that his purpose of incarnation to Earth was going to be fulfilled soon. Bhattathiri requested Lord to protect him and Guruvayoorappan acknowledged it immediately.
