NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 84 - SAMANTA PANCHAKA

 Dasakam - 84 - Samanta Panchaka





On an occasion of Solar Eclipse, Krishna entrusted Dwaraka to Kritavarma and Aniruddha and went to Samanta Panchaka along with yadavas and their womenfolk. Krishna took dip in the holy water to sanctify it for the benefit of human race. He gave gifts and money to Brahmins and interacted with Pandavas and Kauravas. Draupadi who was devoted to Krishna met Rukmini and Satyabhama and spent time with them. She came to know from Rukmini and Satyabhama, how Krishna married them and shared it with other women happily.

Nandagopan and other gopas had also come to the holy place. Krishna met them, honoured them and spent time with them. Gopikas, who were caught in the pangs of separation from Krishna, were excited to see him again. Krishna made the gopikas happy as before. He went to Radha, hugged her and told her that he could not meet her only because of the continuous attack by the enemies and fight. Radha was overwhelmed and forgot herself in his affection. 

After spending good times with Gopikas and Radha as before, he made them realize that he is form of supreme bliss consciousness and the Supreme Brahman, their innermost self. When Uddhava advised them before by meeting them at Gokula, they experienced mixed feeling of joy and sorrow of separation. After Krishna advised the philosophical knowledge of Brahman, they experienced only Supreme bliss at the thoughts of him.

Krishna's father Vasudeva requested Sage Narada and Saint Vyasa to advice him the good deeds to perform to overcome sins. They just laughed and told him when Lord only is his son and he is staying with him, he need not do anything more. Still for his satisfaction, they arranged for an yagna. 

The Yagna began and was happening well. It was well attended by friends. Yadavas honoured the Gopas who came for the ritual. Thus Gopas enjoyed the association with Krishna for those three months. After the completion of Yagna, Krishna went to Radha and hugged her tightly. Hebid her farewell after ascertaining that she is happy and not affected by pains of separation from him anymore and returned to Dwaraka. Bhattathiri prayed to the Lord, who removed the miseries of Gopas, gopikas and Radha, to remove his ailments.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 79 - RUKMINI VIVAHAM


Dasakam 79 - Rukmini Vivaham






Krishna entered Kundini kingdom and Bhishmaka, King of Kundini welcomed him with honours.
Balaraman got to know that Krishna had gone to Kundini and took his army and reached Kundini to be of support to Krishna. The Brahmin approached Rukmini and informed her of Krishna's arrival. Rukmini was overjoyed by the news and prostrated the Brahmin immediately. The people of Kundini saw the beautiful and charming Krishna and felt sad about Rukmi's decision to give Rukmini in marriage to Shishupala. They spent entire night, sleepless and in sorrow.

Next day morning Rukmini, who face resembled as beautiful as moon, decked in her bridal dress and jewelry, came out of her palace. Having set her mind, heart and soul on Krishna, Rukmini, surrounded by guards, went to the Ambika temple to pray to goddess Parvati. Rukmini entered the temple with the noble women and did pooja for Goddess Parvati and prostrated at her feet. She prayed again and again that only Krishna should marry her.

The kings assembled outside the temple eagerly to see the beautiful princess Rukmini. Krishna also was standing along with them but little aloof. As she came out of the temple, her radiating beauty mesmerised the kings and people on all sides. Krishna was enchanted by her when she cast her side glance on him. Krishna went near her and asked where she was heading to and while speaking only, he took her hand, led her to the chariot and drove away with her. There was a loud protest from the onlookers.

The angered kings including Salva searched where the cowherd boy had gone and put up a fight. They were easily defeated by Yadavas. A lion is not affected by the barking of dogs, similarly Krishna was unaffected by the enraged and evil minded kings. Next, enraged Rukmi attacked Krishna. Defeating him effortlessly, Krishna was refrained from killing him by Rukmini. Krishna then tied his hands with a vasthra and shaved of his beard and hair thus humbling his pride. With request of Balarama, Krishna released Rukmi from bondage and proceeded to Dwaraka with Rukmini, who is Mahalakshmi herself.

Rukmini felt shy with her union with Krishna and her joy increased with the love experienced. Krishna sported with her in privacy and Rukmini's face beamed with charming smile. Krishna delighted Rukmini, day and night, with his pleasant talks and jokes. One time, Krishna with his doubtful words made the simple and honest minded Rukmini to get agitated. Krishna teased her for wanting to get married to a cowherd-boy when so many kings were seeking her hand. He said she had listened to the Brahman's words and decided to marry Krishna, who does not own any kingdom. He went to the extent of telling that she can chose a different person too, instead. Hearing this, Rukmini fell unconscious. Then Krishna consoled her and made her happy again.

Krishna and Rukmini were given a jubilant welcome at Dwarka and marriage took place with great pomp and glory. Their union was inevitable on earth as they were divine consorts, Vishnu and Mahalakshmi. Having spoken only the glory of Lord always, Bhattathiri requested that he be protected from all miseries due to the disease. Lord Guruvayoorappan promptly acknowledged his request.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 78 - DWARAKA VASAM, BALARAMAN VIVAHAM, RUKMINI SANDESHAM

Dasakam - 78 - Dwaraka Vaasam, 

Balaraman Vivaham, Rukmini Sandesham







Vishwakarma, the divine architect, put all his exemplary skills to built Dwaraka in the middle of the sea. Divine Gods gave  majesties to make it prosperous. But it was beautified more only by the presence of Krishna. Under the instructions of Brahma, Revathan's son, Karuthmaan gave his daughter Revati in marriage to Balaram. Krishna together with Yadavas performed the festive celebration with grandeur.

The King of Vidarbha, Bheeshmaka's daughter Rukmini was in love with Krishna. But her brother Rukmi, in his total ignorance, decided to give his sister in marriage to Chedi king, Shishupala. Rukmi was friend with non-virtuous Shishupala. Rukmini having nurtured love for Krishna for a long time, became upset over her brother's decision to marry her to Shishupala. She sent a Brahmin as messenger to Krishna, conveying her love and the pain she was experiencing due to the threat of non fulfillment of her wish to marry Krishna.

Dwaraka is not reachable for those with evil thoughts and actions but the Brahmin messenger reached it faster. Krishna, the one who removes the afflictions of worldly pleasures, welcomed him and honoured him. Brahmin then conveyed to Krishna that Kundina (capital of Vidarbha) princess Rukmini is in love with him and has sent him to convey her mind. Knowing excellence of Krishna, Rukmini is attracted to Krishna and has already chosen him as her husband. Now chedi king Shishupala is planning to marry her. So she requested Krishna to intervene and protect her. She had also mentioned that she would not live if Krishna fails to protect her.

Krishna conveyed that he is equally in love with Rukmini and promised to the Brahmin that he will come to Vidarbha and carry the princess in front of all the kings assembled there for the marriage and marry the dark-eyed Rukmini.  Krishna left to Kundina immediately with the Brahmin in the chariot. Bhattathiri worshipped the Lord of Guruvayoor to protect him from his afflictions and was duly acknowledged by the Lord.
