NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 39 - KRISHNA JANMOTHSAVAM


Dasakam - 39 - Krishna Janmothsavam






Vasudeva, one who is best among the yadhu clan, carried the baby Krishna and reached the river Yamuna. The river was running to its full, with waves touching the sky. The moment he approached the water, she receded and reduced the water to the ankle height of Vasudeva, as if the huge flooding waters were an illusory magic. At Gokulam, everyone was fast asleep due to the prompt of Lord. Doors of Nandagopan's house opened and the yogamaya gave a shrill cry as if to announce the location of the house. Vasudeva left the baby Krishna near sleeping Yashoda and carried the girl child to reach Mathura faster.

Yogamaya cried after reaching the prison and guards rushed to inform Kamsa that 8th baby is born. Kamsa came running in anger and agitation to the prison cell, but was confused to see a baby girl in his sister Devaki's hands. Kamsa thought to himself that this must be some maaya of Lord Vishnu. He snatched the baby from Devaki's hands like an elephant snatching and plucking the lotus from the pond and lifted his hand to hit it hard on the stone slab. The baby girl slipped of his hands and took a divine form with powerful weapons in her eight arms in the sky.

Yogamaya called out to the cruel king Kamsa and said that there is no use in killing her, the person who is going to kill him is born elsewhere.  Lord's sister then vanished in to the different temples in the earth while devas sprinkled flowers on her. Kamsa informed his demons Pralamba, Baka, and Poothana about Yogamaya's words, the next morning and immediately the asuras went on a spree of killing all male infants all around the world. Bhattathiri exclaimed that what deeds are not possible for such merciless people?

Krishna now gave a cry announcing his birth in gokula, waking up Yashoda. She immediately informed Nandagopan and all gopikas, the happy news of arrival of male child. The whole gokula rejoiced the arrival of the child. Yasodha looked at the baby Krishna who was as fresh as the kayambu flower, fed him with milk, touched and caressed him and felt extremely happy. Bhattadiri exclaimed that yasodha is the most fortunate one in the world to experience this bliss.

Nandagopan brimming with joy distributed gifts to all holy Brahmins and performed all rituals for baby's welfare. Gopas did all the auspicious rites and observances for the child. Bhattathiri requested Lord who bestows auspiciousness to all in the three worlds to ward off his afflictions and protect him.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 38 - KRISHNA AVATHAARAM


Dasakam - 38 - Krishna Avathaaram





Narayana Bhattathiri was overwhelmed with joy as he started the story of Krishna Jananam. He sang, ''Ananda roopa Bhagavannu ayi thae avathare'', meaning Lord's form when born itself, is bliss personified. 

When the time of incarnation came, the sky was covered with rain bearing clouds. It shone very similar to the Lord's blue colour skin which was emanating radiance all over. While the rain cooled the earth, moon emerging out and shining at midnight, virtuous people feeling joyous that their wishes are going to get fulfilled, the Lord who is remover of sorrows in all the three worlds, incarnated on earth as Sri Krishna!

At the time of birth as a child, Krishna was fully decked with sparkling crown, necklaces and sporting his conch, discus, lotus, mace. His blue coloured chest was sporting Mahalakshmi and all the identities to prove that he is Lord Hari himself. Mahalakshmi who never leaves her place on the Lord's chest, glanced the entire room of the prison cell and sanctified it and warded it, of all the evils and negative vibrations due to Kamsa.

Vasudeva saw the form of lord, which cannot be explained by even divine sages, with his own eyes. His eyes swelled and entire body got goosebumps. With his throat choking with overwhelming joy, in a melting voice, Vasudeva sang in praise of the Lord for a very long time. He requested that Lord remove all his sorrows and sufferings with his side glances overflowing with compassion. Devaki's thin body soaked with joyful tears prayed to the Lord. At that time, Lord who is a seat for mercy, reminded them of their previous two births. As per mother's request, then Lord took the form of a human infant.

Lord instructed Vasudeva, son of Soorasena, to carry the infant and exchange it with yoganidhra, the daughter of Nandagopan. The one, whose form can be perceived only by the virtuous sages, was seated like a swan perched on the lotus, in the hands of the father. The yoganidhra born in Nandagopan house put all the people in the entire region to deep sleep with her maaya. For Vasudeva, the locks on the prison doors broke open on its own facilitating Lord to be carried by Vasudeva. This was no surprise.

Vasudeva who was so fortunate to have become father of Lord, carried him to Gokulam. Adiseshan spread the hoods over the child, protecting and preventing from getting wet by rain. It also illuminated the path with the light emanating from its gems on the hoods.

Bhattathiiri requested Lord Guruvayoorappan of such glory to cure him of his ailments.
