Significance of Sri Radha Kalyana Mahotsavam !! Final Part !!



Jai Sriman Narayana !!



Radhey Krishna !!

 
 
 



 



 
Guruji Sri Haridas Giri describes that the control over the senses is possible only through Nama Sankeerthanam and with the blessings of Lord.  In Kaliyuga there is no alternative other than Hari Nama Sankeerthanam to attain the Blessings of Lord.  While performing Nama Sankeerthanam , the heart melts with the melody of the songs and its tunes.   Lord does not require anything from us other than our constant faith and devotion.  Saints and Sages repeatedly says, surrender to Him ‘ Nishcala Bakthirasthu..’ .    The Dakshina Bhajana Sampradaya creates firm devotion through the melodious songs and certain rituals.  The Supreme Lord is the beginning and the End, while performing these rituals and prayers, control over mind and senses are possible. 


 
 




Worship of Lord Ganesha  brings – intelligence and beauty, Worship of Goddess Gouri brings Gambeera Purhsha ( A Real Super Hero)  as husband,  Worship of Lord Shiva and Vishnu brings Good Luck,  Whoever feed birds will have  a loving husband,  Whoever serves Sanyasins with  rice and Dal would be blessed with a husband of long life.  Radha Kalyanam brings   all the above said merits together in abundance. The eternal Truth is that Death is inevitable.  One day we all should leave this Earth.  No one desires to take rebirth on this Earth again and again and get strangled in the material world with all sorts of pain, agony and grievances.  The one and only way to attain Salvation at the Lotus feet of Sriman Narayana is through Nama Sankeerthana and self-less service to Lord. 


 


Our beloved Guruji - Sri Haridas Giri had done enormous service to the society by spreading Sampradaya Bajans and insists us to conduct the same very often and avail the blessings of Lord.  Hari Nama Sankeerthana and its epitome Sri Radha Kalyanam brings   prosperity, Control over senses, and Salvation.  God resides in everyone’s heart and watches us constantly.  He is 'pure' - 'Sudhha Sathwam' and we should approach him truly and sincerely.

Sri Thotakacharayar who was the disciple of Sri Adi Sankara devoted his life to serve his Guru.  He was a dedicated follower of Sri Adi Sankara, he followed his Guru like his shadow. He visualized Sri Adi sankara as Lord Sri Ramachandra and composed the famous krithi – ‘Thotakashtakam’ – Thodaya mangalam – Jai Janaki Ramana' .  This is listed as one first song in the Dakshina Bajana Sampradaya – Sri Radha Kalyana Padhhathi. 


Sri Maruthanallur Sadguru Swamigal introduced a refined form of Radha Kalyana mahostavam/ Radha Kalyana Padhathi widely known as Dakshina Bajan Sampradaya.  The following are the glimpses of it.


·         Guru Vandanam – Guru Smaranam.  Guru is the Acharaya - the one who takes us to Lord. 


·         Sri Geetha Govindam –  Jayadeva Ashtapadi teaches us how passionate Lord Krishna was towards Sri Radha Rani.   Lord Krishna symbolizes Paramatman, the male form of Supreme Lord and Sri Radha Rani as Jeevathma the female form.    Jayadevar's compositions reveal the eternal truth that we all are Jeevathma (Sri Radha), in order to attain the Lotus feet of Lord one should practice perpetual devotion and faith in Him, which provides eternal bliss.   

·         Kalyanam – Pravaram

·         Muthukuthal ( preparation for Divyasnanam of Lord with all the gems)

·         Goloka Vruthantham

·         Vastra Dharanam

·         Mangalya Dharanam

Chod dhiya Vaikundha Sukha Oh Hari Chod Dhiya

Kabir Das asks , "Why did Lord Vishnu leave His Abode  Sri Vaikundham?".


Kabir Das says Lord Hari left Vaikundham and His comforts in order to protect us from the clutches of material world.   Everyone cannot learn Veda and understand the meaning and depth of it, moreover it is not an easy task to follow the prescribed rules in Veda Sastra and apply them in individual life.    All these divine scriptures talk about the supremacy of Lord;   in the same manner Hari Nama Sankeerthanam/Hari Nama Smaran also praises the glory of Lord.   


In Maharashtra – the zealous devotees like Mukata Bai, Jyaneshwar, Eknath, Kamapatra, Gorakumbar, Namadev, Thukkaram and many were constantly engaged in worshipping Lord Hari with Nama Sankeerthanam in Marati language.  Alternatively Meerabai, Kabir Das, Brahmananda were praised the glories of Lord in their mother tongue Hindi.  But, Kanaka Dasar, Panduranga Dasar, Saint Tyagaraja all were praised Lord in their mother tongue Kannada.  Narasi Mehta praised the glory of Lord in Gujarati.  The language was not at all a barrier to worship Lord, it can be different but the objective was the same.   All were devotedly engaged in praising the glory of Lord and spreading the glories of it in their own language.



Sri Marthanallur Swamigal was lived in a village called Thiruvisnallur in the District of Tanjore.  His yeomen efforts to spread the Hari Nama Sakeerthanam was unparallel, he introduced Dakshina Bhajana Sampradaya.  He travelled extensively from Kanyakumari to Mount Kailash and pioneered the Dakshina Bajana Sampradaya incorporating all the compositions of poets from different states of India and introduced refined form of Dakshina Bhajana Sampradaya Padhhathi.   Later, Sri Haridas Giri Guruji publicized the significance of Hari Nama Sankeerthanam through his number of stunning lectures and Bhajans educated us that it is a need for hour in this Kaliyuga and persuaded every individual to carry out Sampradaya Bhajans/ Hari Nama Sankeerthanam very often and avail the blessings of Lord and attain the highest of the pieties known as Salvation. 

Jai Sriman Narayana !!

There are four Yugas - Kritha Yuga, Thretha Yuga, Dwapara Yuga and Kaliyuga.  Lord Vishnu’s incarnation as Lord Rama and Lord Krishna took place in Threytha Yuga and Dwapara Yuga respectively.  During those Yugas, the worship of Lord was possible only through Yaga, Yagna and Tapasya and these were required lots and lots of time and efforts. After seeing the pains involved in conducting an Yagna and Yaga and the time limits etc..  The Rishis and Sages prayed to Lord that they desired to take re-birth in Kali Yuga to worship him in a better and easier way.  The significance of Kaliyuga is that worship of Lord is much easier and effective than the other Yugas.   In this Yuga, Lord will be pleased at his devotees easily with His Namasmaran/Nama Sankeerthanam.  Sruthi, Smruthi, Ithihasam, Puranam all speaks about the glories of Supreme Lord and were establshed by Him.  Though the sacred scriptures Veda, Sruthi, Smrithi, Puranam and Upanishads everything talk elaborately about Lord, unfortunately it is not possible for a common man to understand the depth of it.


Lord Krishna says to Maharishi Narada:

Na Aham Vasami Vaikundhey Na Yogi Hrudaye Ravou
Math Bathktha  Yathra Gayanathi Thathra Thishatami Narada:


He does not reside in Vaikundham, He does not live in the heart of Yogis and He constantly resides where His devotees sing Nama Sankeerthanam and praise the glories of Him. He stands and watches his devotees obediently with His hands folded in the places where Nama Sankeerthanam takes place.  He requires only Love and Faith of His worshipper.  

Sage Agastya praises the glory of Hari Nama Sankeerthanam:
  
‘Padiyellam Kadanthu Suddha Brahma Vasthu Vaka Irunthu
Bajanayal Makizhthu Thondrum Karunai Moorthiye
Om Namo Narayanaya Om Namo Namo’.


Adi sankara says ‘Knowledge is Brahma’, He instructs us to use the knowledge to learn and love the Supreme Lord.  In Kali Yuga, life will not be easy; there will be no morality or respect exists.   Adi Sankara pronounce that you may be Superior or Inferior, You may be Rich or Poor, You are a Man or Woman, you have already Born or Yet to take Birth, one thing is certain that death is definite, in a short span of life time you have no choice other than to think of Supreme Lord who has created You.  The self – realization and God realization is possible only through knowledge.   Nothing in this Universe can protect you other than the Supreme Lord.

Adi Sankara wrote:

‘Baja Govindam Baja Govindam Govindam Baja Moodamathey
Samprapthey kaley nahi nahi rakshathy drunjunkaraney
Baja Govindam Baja Govindam’ Govindam Baja Moodamathey


Adi Sankara all through his compositions instructs us to praise the glory of Lord Govinda.  In this Kali Yuga singing and praising his glories   provides abundance of merits and Lord Hari resides where there is continuous reverberation of Nama sankeerthanam takes place.

In a moment, Sri Radha Rani was terribly shocked at the separation of her ever youthful charming lover.  With a sudden rush of grief, Sri Radha Rani looked for her husband here and there.  The most distressed Sri Radha Rani fallen on the ground and wept bitterly.  Sri Radha Rani mumbled to herself, ' Oh! Supreme Lord, why did you leave me in this Illusion?’  The infant Krishna also cried louder both of them were continued to express their grief for some time.  All of a sudden Sri Radha Rani could listen to a mysterious voice ' Radhey, don't cry.  Pray to the Lotus feet of Sri Krishna.  In every evening you will be enjoying the precious moments of Rasa leela with me at this place at your heart's content.'  As per the instruction of the unknown voice, Sri Radha Rani carried the child in her hand and started to leave the jewel palace and beautiful flower Garden in the forest of Vrindavan.  She arrived at Nanda's palace within blink of her eyes.





Sri Radha Rani arrived at the palace of Nandaji, her eyes were red and her beautiful dresses were messy.  She placed the child in the hands of Yasoda Mai and said ' I had to face so many difficulties to bring home the hungry and crying baby of yours.  The paths were muddy with continuous rain and my clothes were ruined.'

Sri Radha Rani placed the baby in the hands of Yasoda Mai; she began to feed the crying infant. The distressed Sri Radha Rani continued ' I have been away from home for a long time I should return right now.'  Sri Radha Rani left the place in a hurry.  Saintly Yasoda held the child affectionately to her chest and fed Him.



From that day onwards, every evening Sri Radha Rani meets Sri Krishna at Vrindavan and spends their joyous and wonderful moments with each other.  As a promise to each other the divine couple - Sri Krishna and Sri Radha Rani continued to enjoy their beautiful moments of Supreme Ecstasy in each other's company.


Thus, whoever listens to the glories of Sri Radha Krishna would attain perpetual devotion and liberation from this material world. 

Radhey Krishna !!

The most pleased Sri Radha Rani advised Lord Brahma to ask for a boon.  Lord Brahma desired for the perpectual devotion at the Lotus Feet of Sri Radha Krishna.  Lord Brahma had begun arrangements to perform the celestial wedding of the divine couple.  He seated between them and created sacrificial fire with a prayer to Supreme Lord and recited the mantras.  The Father of the Vedas bowed down His head with respect and circumambulated Sri Radha Rani, Lord Krishna and the sacred for fire seven times.  Sri Radha Rani was seated next to Lord Krishna, Her hands were placed on Krishna's and Sri Krishna chanted the seven Vedic mantras.  The knower of Veda placed Sri Radha Rani's hand on Krishna's chest and vice versa and the couple recited the Vedic mantras.  Sri Radha Rani placed knee length of Parijatha flower garland around Krishna's neck and vice versa.  The divine couple seated next to Lord Brahma holding their hands together and recited five Vedic mantras. Lord Brahma performed 'Kanyadhanam' and placed her hands on Krishna's.  The celestial Dancers and singers were performed and deities showered flowers on the newly wedded couple.  Lord Brahma received eternal faith on the Lotus Feet of Sriman Narayana as Guru Dakshina and left to Sathya Loka. 



When the divine couple was left alone, Sri Randha Rani fixed her eyes on the captivating beauty of Krishna with amazement and shyly covered her beautiful face.  Sri Radha Rani was tormented by the arrows of Kamadeva and approached Sri Krishna to His flower couch.  Sri Radha Rani nervously smeared sandal, kumkum, anguru and musk at Lord Krishna's forehead and chest.  The most affectionate Sri Radha Rani served Lord with honey and nectar in a beautiful jeweled cup.  She offered him betelnut scented with camphor and spices.  It was Sri Krishna's turn to smear her forehead with sandal, kumkum, anguru and musk and served Sri Radha Rani with nectar like betel nuts scented with camphor and spices half chewed.  Sri Radha Rani accepted the 'Thamboolam' (half- chewed betel nuts) from Krishna with great love and respect.  Lord Krishna - The Supreme Lord was tormented by Kamadeva and pretended that He was still having perfect control over all His senses.  The Supreme Lord who is unconquerable finally accepted His failure to Lord Kamadeva.  The bride and the bridegroom took pleasure in their wonderful and enigmatic moments and the couple spent their most breathtaking taking moments in each others hand.  Does Krishna require any explanations for performing Rasa Leela? Lord Krishna - as a learned scholar of Kama Rasa took Sri Radha Rani into ecstacy.   During the wondrous moments they had stolen each others favorites, Sri Radha Rani had stolen Sri Krishna's Flute and Sri Krishna forcibly grabbed Sri Radha Rani's jewel mirror.  Their gorgeous garments made of ornaments of precious jewels were crushed at the supreme ecstasy.   Their heavenly hours of enjoyment continued and Sri Radha Rani was beautifully decked by Lord Krishna.  None of the   Gopis or Vishwakaramas could beautify her in such a way Sri Krishna gracefully ornamented Sri Radha Rani.  When it was Sri Radha Rani’s turn to decorate the Lord, instantly Krishna abandoned His youthful form and transformed into a hungry, frightened and crying infant of Nandaji.

Lord Krishna narrates to Sri Radha Rani that All the deities and Rishis, Lord Brahma, Lord Shiva, Lord Ganesha, Lord Karthikeya, Adi Shesha, Lord Yama, Nara - Narayana, Kapila, Goddess Durga, Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Saraswathy, Goddess Parvathy, Prakriti are dear to him, Sri Radha Rani is more dearer than his life and she dwells in His heart in the same manner Sriman Narayana holds Sri Maha Lakshmi in His heart, Sri Krishna also holds Sri Radha Rani in His heart. After listening to the heartfelt revelation of Lord Krishna, Sri Radha Rani bowed her face timidly towards Him and earnestly replied that she was aware of all the Truth.  She disclosed the very fact of her appearance as Sri Radha Rani on this Earth by the curse of a Devotee, by this means she got separated from Lord and turned into one of the Gopis.  Sri Radha Rani pleaded Lord Krishna to fulfill her desires that was tormented all these hundred years.  Lord Krishna comforted her and instructed her to wait for the appropriate time to fulfill  her all wishes.  Krishna explains to her about the philosophy of Sruthi, Smrithi and Sastras, he reveals the ultimate truth about the destiny that was not possible to erase or rewrite by Him and how it would be possible for Lord Brahma who was after all originated from the Navel of Supreme Lord.





At this moment, Lord Brahma appeared before them with a flower Garland and Kamadhenu.  Lord Brahma bowed his head with tears in his eyes and praised the glories of Lord Krishna.  He approached Sri Radha Rani - Mother of the Universe, with his head bowed, washed her feet and praised her glory.  Lord Brahma performed severe austerities for sixty thousand years in Pushkar Theertham praying to Lord Krishna.   Finally, Lord Krishna pleased at the devotion of Lord Brahma; Lord Krishna provided him with a boon, with this boon Lord Brahma could vision the glorious Lotus Feet of Sri Radha Rani at this moment.  Lord Brahma reveals the eternal truth that Sri Radha Rani was originated from the transcendental body of Krishna, thus she is equivalent to Sri Krishna by all means and respects.  Sri Radha Rani and Sri Krishna are identical entities that cannot be separated by any means. 



All the living beings in this Universe are part of the Supreme Lord and Sri Radha Rani is the source of energy/force in them.  All human beings are Jeevathma, female form of Lord ( Sri Radha Rani) and Lord  Krishna is the only male form known as Paramatman.  Krishna is present in every individual as Super Soul and Sri Radha Rani is the resting place of the Soul. 

Lord Brahma exposes his powerlessness to praise the virtues of Lord Krishna and Radha Rani, though he is the master of Vedas and performs the responsibility as Creator, his intellect and wisdom were incapable to praise the Supreme Lord and Sri Radha Rani.  Lord Brahma added that none of the deities or rishis has the competence to praise the glories of Sri Radha Rani, she holds the most supreme place in all their hearts.   Lord Brahma prostrated at the Lotus Feet of Sri Krishna and Radha Rani.

Sri Radha Rani received Little Krishna from the hands of Nandaji with lot of affection.  She lovingly took the child closer to her chest, embraced and kissed the child with lots and lots of love.  She could envisage the divine 'Rasa Leela' of Krishna with the Gopis.  She could visualise a dazzling palace and its numerous domes decorated with the sparkling jewels, pillars made of Rubies and marvelous garden full of various fragrances of flowers.  The palace and its decoration were made of precious stones and gems.  Sri Radha Rani entered the magnificent Palace and saw the beautiful pitcher made of gold and silver full of nectar and honey.  There she found the youthful dark complexioned Lord Krishna with the resemblance of ten millions Kamadevas (cupid).  Lord Krishna was dressed in Yellow, beautifully adorned his body with precious ornaments and the most handsome Lord in his reclining posture on the bed made out of various flowers.  His splendid ear rings, necklace made of precious stones and jewels, Sparkling Kaustuba Mani on his chest, bracelets and anklets were added His beauty.  His face was similar to the autumn moon and his eyes were resembled the lotus.  The feathers of a peacock in the knot of his beautiful curly hair lock and the freshness of jasmine garlands on his body captivated Sri Radha Rani.








Soon, Sri Radha Rani realized that the child in her hand was no longer an infant.  He was all grown up striking youth.   She could not remove her eyes from Him.   Sri Radha Rani looked at Him passionately.  The young Krishna provoked Sri Radha Rani to come closer to him and Hew revealed the everlasting truth that they are inseparable.  They were bound to each other.  Krishna disclosed the eternal truth that He loved her more than anyone and He would be with her as long as the whiteness in the milk exists, the fragrance in the flowers and the heat presents in the fire.  Krishna expressed the true fact that the potter cannot make pots without clay; Goldsmith cannot make Gold ornaments without Gold in that way He cannot preserve the Universe without Her.  Sri Radha Rani was the one who made Him perfect in his duty of 'Preservation' in the Universe.  Thus, Krishna came to be known as - Shri Krishna.






The sacred Veda describes Krishna as the Supreme Lord and Sri Radha Rani as the source of energy in the entire Universe.  Krishna declared that Sri Radha Rani is the Supreme Goddess and emerged from His body. She is equal to the Power, Glory, Knowledge and Intelligence of Lord Krishna.  Whoever believes that Sri Krishna and Sri Radha Rani are the two aspects would fall in the hell of Kalasutra as long as the Sun and the Moon exists in the Universe.  The sinner would make his seven generations of ancestors and descendants remain the Hell with this sin.  Moreover, the piousness he had earned in ten million births was destroyed by the mere thought of Sri Radha Rani and Sri Krishna is two entities.  Sri Krishna reveals His boundless desire to hear the nectar like words 'Radha' pronounced by his devotees; He dwells in the place where her names are often uttered with faith and devotion.  One who chants the name 'Radha' is  more dearer to him than the one who performs countless offerings to Lord.

Vasudeva Sutham Devam Kamsa Chanoora Mardhanam
Devaki Paramanandam Krishnam Vandhey Jagath Gurum

Krishnaya Vasudevaya Devaki Nandanaya cha
Nandagopa Kumaraya Govindaya Namo Nama:

Brahma Vaivarta Puranam -   Chapter fifteen describes the celestial marriage of Sri Radha Rani with Lord Krishna.


One day Nandaji - Foster father of Sri Krishna took his cow and calves to a forest in Vrindavan, along with his Little - Krishna.  Nandji let his herds of cattle to drink water from the lake and he also drank a little to quench his thirst.  He went to relax sat under a Banyan tree holding his Little Krishna close to his chest.  The little child of Supreme Lord entrusted Yogamaya to form heavy clouds, darkened the forest with hurricane and it created a dismay in the forest.  Nandaji was horrified at the sudden change of the climate.  The thought of leaving behind the cattle in the wasteland and the thought of   protecting the child from the thunder storm put Nandaji in a terrible state.  Suddenly, the little child began to cry louder and louder, holding his father tightly.


At this moment, the most graceful Sri Radha Rani appeared before them.    She was walking enchantingly and more elegant than the Kanjana Birds and Swans.  Her ever beautiful face resembles the autumn moon.  Her glittering eyes were more beautiful than the Lotus flower; her beautiful eyelashes were coated with black Kajal.    Her nose reminds beak of the king of the birds and well decorated with rings of pearls.  The beauty of her ear and earrings stole the splendor of the mid-day sun.  The beauties of her lips were like the ripped Bimba fruits. The beauty of her teeth was similar to finely arranged precious pearls.  Her smile reminds the splendor of the jasmine flowers just beginning to bloom.  Her beautiful forehead was decorated with Sindura.  Her cheeks look more beautiful with the falling of curly locks of hair.  Each and every part of her body revealed the gorgeousness and the loveliness of her youth.  Her neck, shoulders, chest, hands, waist, thighs, legs and feet revealed her dazzling appearance.  Every part of her body was covered with the finest jewelry, precious pearls and Gems.  Her fair complexion stole the beauty of the Champa Flowers.  It was impossible to describe her majesty in a few lines.  She gracefully approached Little Krishna.

Sri Radha Rani's presence created the radiance of more than ten million Suns illuminating at a time from ten directions in the Universe.  Nandaji was more delighted at her presence.  He bowed his head and eyes filled with tears praised the glory of Sri Radha Rani.  Nandaji already learnt from Sage Garga about the reason of Krishna’s birth in Gokul - Vraja along with Sri Radha Rani.  Nandaji realized at once that the little Krishna was none other than the Supreme Lord - Sri Mahavishnu.  Sri Radha Rani is the dearest among Sri Krishna's companions and dearer than Sri Mahalakshmi.    Nandaji pleaded Sri Radha Rani to keep his son with Her and requested to return him once her desires were fulfilled.  Nandaji handed over the crying child to Sri Radha Rani, she took Him with boundless joy.  Sri Radha Rani informed Nandaji not to disclose the secret all that happened because of his pious deeds in several births.  The most pleased Sri Radha Rani offered a boon to Nandaji.  Nandaji humbly requested for perpetual devotion at all times in the Lotus Feet of Sri Krishna and Sri Radha Rani.  He also revealed their desire to be nearer to Sri Krishna and Sri Radha Rani forever.  Sri Radha Rani blessed them with the boon of perpetual devotion to Lord in their hearts.
