You must log in to post a comment. Prayers to the Lord of Guruvayoor from Narayaneeyam It was completed in days at the end of which Bhattathiri, who was suffering from chronic rheumatic disease, was completely cured and also had a beatific vision of the Lord of Guruvayoor as Venugopala.
A brief note on the contents of each dasaka is also given, where possible, to put the slokas in context. Krishna, along with Satyabhama, attended the marriage of Draupadi. He stayed with the Pandavas at Hastinapura for sometime for their happiness.
He then established the city of Indraprastha and came back to Dwaraka. Arjuna had the tacit consent of Krishna who somehow pacified an enraged Balaram. Krishna then went to Indrapastha along with Arjuna, Subhadra and Balaram to show his affection for Arjuna and the other Pandavas. While at Indraprastha Krishna met Kalindi on the banks of Yamuna and married her.
He helped Arjuna to burn the Khandava Forest to propitiate Agni. Krishna also married Mitravinda who was deeply in love with him but was afraid of her brothers. Krishna also married Bhadra whose hand was offered by her brothers. Five-headed Mura rose up from the waters of the sea threatening Krishna who cut off his head by his ckakra.
Narakasura who came with sixty five four-tusked elephants also met the same fate as Mura. Praised by Bhumi, Krishna crowned Bhagadatta, son of Narakasura, as the king. Narakasura had kept in captivity sixteen thousand young women who loved Krishna and had taken refuge in slkkas. The four-tusked elephants were also sent to Dwarka except the one gifted to Bhagadatta. They were welcomed and honoured by Indra. Satyabhama was the envy of celestial damsels whom the former excelled in beauty.
Krishna forcibly took with him the Kalpavriksha from heaven after subduing an angered Indra. Bhattathiri concludes this dasaka with the following sloka:.
O Lord of Guruvayur! You also fathered in each of them ten sons each.
Guruvayooralpan, son of Krishna born of Rukminiwas abducted by Shambara. Krishna attended this wedding where Balarama killed Rukmi because of a quarrel in the game of dice. Bana, son of Mahabali and a gurvayoorappan of Lord Siva had one thousand hands. His daughter Usha had, in a dream, intimate relations with Aniruddha whom she had never seen before.
She fell madly in love with him and pined for him. Usha recognised Arniruddha in one of the pictures. Chitralekha brought Aniruddha to Usha by her yogic powers and the couple spent time together in secret. Bana got wind of this and imprisoned Aniruddha. This news was brought to Krishna by Narada.
Krishna attacked Shonitapuram, capital city of Bana, with the Yadava army.

Bana engaged Satyaki in battle. Bana fought valiantly with five hundred bows but all the bows were broken and his hands were being cut one after another. Shiva jwara was overcome by Vishnu jwara.
Concludes this dasaka with the following sloka: King Nriga, cursed by a brahmana, had taken the body of a huge lizard and was trapped in a well. O Lord of Guruvayoor! Please save me from my ailments.
Paundraka Vasudeva king of Kurusha thought or imagined that he was an incarnation of Narayana himself. He sent a messenger to Krishna with the message that he Paundraka was the real incarnation of Mahavishnu and Krishna should give up all those distinguishing marks of Vishnu and surrender himself to Paundraka.
Paundraka, though he challenged Krishna, had mentally identified himself with Mahavishnu. Killed by Krishna he merged in Krishna attaining Sayuja Mukti.
I take refuge in you for the removal from my afflictions. During a solar eclipse Krishna, leaving Kritavarma and Aniruddha for the defence of Dwaraka, left for Samanthapanchaka, a place well known for a holy dip during the solar eclipse, along with yadavas and their womenfolk. Krishna, for the welfare of all, himself took a holy dip, gave cash as dakshina to brahmins and mingled with Pandavas, Kauravas and other friends.
Then Krishna, seeing the gopas went to them and eagerly met with the gopis whose bodies had become wafer thin as they were pining in separation from Krishna.
The sight of Krishna was a virtual carnival for the gopis whose heart had been stolen by Krishna who found again the joy of nestling in their familiar bosoms.
Gopis realised the truth of this in their lives and experienced the bliss of Krishna Consciousness. The Rishis made Vasudeva perform a Yaga, for the removal of all difficulties and for the benefit of all. The yaga lasted for three months during which period the gopis enjoyed the company of Krishna. Bhattathiri concludes this dasaka with the following sloka: When it was time for taking leave, You went to Radha and firmly embraced her.
Without anyone to turn to for help, they sent a messenger to Krishna begging him to put an end to Jaransandha. Making up his mind that both these events could be accomplished simultaneously, Krishna proceeded to Indraprastha, the capital city of Yudhishthira. The reason was that before starting the Rajasuya Yaga Jarasandha had to be defeated any way.
YudhiShthira was happy when Krisha came with his wives. Yudhishthira had scored victory over all the other kings except Jarasandha. Jarasandha, who respected brahmins, readily agreed and chose Bhima as the opponent. It was a terrible duel and Bhima was finding it difficult to cope. Krishna released all those kings kept in captivity by Jarasandha and asked them to go back to their respective kingdoms and look after their subjects. Krishna took active part in the Rajasuya Yaga by washing the feet of brahmins etc.
Fortunate indeed was Yudhishthira. The question arose who should be honoured by agrapuja in Rajasuya. Sisupala merged with Krishna as he was continuously thinking of Krishna only for three births albeit as an enemy. However, Duryodhana was green wth envy seeing the prosperity and success of the Pandavas. He was confounded in the hall constructed by Maya for Yudhishthira.
Areas with water appeared to him as dry land whereas dry areas appeared as full of water.

The result was funny. It was real funny. Bhattathiri concludes this dasaka with the following slokq. The funny scene created by Duryodhana generated uncontrollable laughter in Draupadi and Bhima which Krishna encouraged on the sly by guruvayooarppan sidelong glances.
Salva who was defeated by the cadaver forces during the marriage of Rimini obtained a viand air plane from Lord Shiva and attacked Wanaka when Krishna was in the country of Korus. Pradyumna fought him with the Yadu army and killed his valiant minister Dyumna. The battle lasted for 27 days. By this time Krishna reached Dwaraka along with Balarama and attacked Salva whose army had been decimated.
Salva broke the bow sharnga of Krishna and killed before his very eyes the illusory body of Vasudeva created by his magical powers.
Some say Krishna for a second thought it was real but Vyasa does not agree with this view. Saubha was pulverised by the mace of Krishna and cast into the sea and Salva also fell with his neck cut off by the chakra of Krishna.
Like Gurkvayoorappan he also merged with Krishna whose incarnation was for the liberation of those who always had the Lord in their hearts. Draupadi was dragged into the sabha assembly and Dussasana pulled at her robes. She frantically clutched her robes but it was of no avail. Exhausted Dussasana gave up the effort. On another occasion during the stay of Pandavas in the forest, Durvasa arrived as a guest after Draupadi had partaken of the food from the Akshayapatraafter solkas the Akshayapatra automatically becomes empty.
Draupadi was afraid of the anger of Durvasa. Krishna came to her rescue and ate the remnants from the Akshayapatra. Durvasa and his disciples had the feeling of eaten a sumptuous meal. Guruvayoorappwn was Draupadi saved from her predicament.
When preparations were guruvayolrappan for a war, Arjuna opted for Krishna alone on his guruvagoorappan while Duryodhana chose to guguvayoorappan whole of the army of Krishna.
Arjuna sent Krishna as emissary of the Pandavas to Hastinapura where Krishna spoke, on behalf of the Pandavas. While Bhishma, Drona and others accepted the proposals of Krishna, Duryodhana was adamant and refused to yield even as much land as could accommodate the tip gurufayoorappan a needle. Krishna then revealed his cosmic form which terrified the city of Hastinapura.
When Arjuna, seeing Bhima, Drona and others ready to fight in the opposite camp, was overcome by the feeling of pity at guruvaoorappan thought that he was out to kill them. None can kill and none can be killed.
Raja Thatha’s stotra translations: Sri Guruvayurappan Stotram
Forget the fear of killing and and, with your mind elokas in me, engage in this righteous war for dharma which is the duty of a kshatriya. Bhishma, a staunch devotee of Krishna, was killing tens of thousands of kings daily and even Arjuna was tired of fighting. In the fight with Drona, Krishna accepted on his breast the Vishnavastra aimed at Arjuna by Bhagadutta.
