NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM 77 - UPASHLOKA JANANAM, JARASANDHA AND KAALAYAVANA VADHAM


Dasakam 77 - Upashloka Jananam,

Jarasandha and Kaalayavana Vadham






Saiarandhari gave sandal paste to Krishna when he entered Mathura. In return, Krishna set right her hunchback and promised her that he will visit her house some day. She dressed herself well with costumes and jewellery, decorated her house well and waited for Krishna's arrival. Krishna decked in his beautiful costumes and jewellery went with Uddhava to Sairandhari's house. At his arrival, all her wishes got fulfilled and she welcomed Krishna and happily served him various offerings

Krishna wanted to grant a boon for her hospitality. Instead of asking for devotion to Krishna throughout her life or asking for his presence with her always, this ignorant woman asked his presence with her for few nights. Bhattathiri wonders at her ignorance of not asking "saamipyam" (being close with Lord) of the Lord or "saaujyam" (being one with Lord) from the Lord. Krishna granted her boon and made her happy the following few nights, as a result a son Upashloka was born to them. He learnt paancharathraagamam from Sage Narada and shone as an exponent forever.

Krishna together with Balarama and Uddhava went to Akrurar's house as promised to him. Akrurar welcomed them heartily and worshipped him singing his praises. Krishna sent Akrurar to know the whereabouts of Pandavas, sons of Kunthi. He came to know the return of Pandavas from exile and Bheema escaping from Duryodhana's attempt to kill him by poisoning him and pushing him into Ganges, through Akrura's meeting with Dhritarashtra.

Jarasandhan, father in law of Kamsan, angry with Kamsa vadham, lost his brains in anger, attacked Mathura. Krishna, taking help from Balarama and the chariot he got from devaloka, retaliated and killed 23 Akshouhinis (1 Akshouhini - 21,870 chariots, elephants, 65,610 cavalry and 1,09,350 infantry). Balarama somehow arrested Jarasandhan who was strongest king in the world at that time, having captured territories in all directions around. To make him come for fights more, Krishna freed him. Jarasandhan attacked 16 times and every time he was defeated and in all 391 Akshouhinis were killed by Krishna. When he came for the 18th time, Krishna took help of devaloka architect Vishwakarma and built a palace in Dwaraka amidst the sea and deported all his people to Dwaraka through his yogic powers.

Krishna then ran away acting coward outside the city. Kaalayavana, friend of Jarasandha chased him and Krishna purposefully ran into a cave as he wanted to avoid killing him with his hands thereby preventing salvation for Kaalayavana. As planned by Krishna, Kaalayavana stepped on Muchukunda who was sleeping inside the cave and got reduced to ashes by him. Pleased with Muchukunda, Krishna showed his Bhagavath Swaroopam to him. Krishna wanted to grant a boon, but Muchukunda being great devotee of Krishna requested only his blessings as he is not interested in anything else. Moved with his answer, Krishna granted deep devotion which will give him moksham at later stage and advised him to do penance to dilute the sin he had accumulated by hunting and killing animals and for having inflicted pain to his subjects during his rule.

Krishna returned to Mathura after Kaalayavana vatham and killed his armies. The Magadha king Jarasandha once again obstructed Krishna. This time once again, Krishna let Jarasandha get victory so that his ego is boosted up and will come for fight once again. Then Krishna fled to his kingdom Dwaraka situated in the middle of the ocean. Bhattathiri worshipped that Lord who gave false pride to Jarasandhan and went to Dwaraka, to protect him from his ailments and Lord immediately acknowledged his request.
