my best friend's divorce
by the doc
Age Group: Adult
O Uddhav, (like the) black bee, O friend of that beloved deceiver Krushna, your moustache and beard (your …. Feet) shows tinted colours of saffron; resembling the luminescence of lightening, like the necklace or the garlands of being the shared wives of the clouds and the sky; do not touch our feet! You, appearing thus, are the messenger of that Krushna, the king of sweetness, now seated in the court of the Yadavs, who is worth the scoff of women with pride; may you receive these tinted colours and attention from (their garlands) them! (not from us)
By that generous gifted experience of the captivating divine nectar of His lips, God Krushna has left us and gone, like the way bees like you leave away flowers after drinking their sweet honey up! It is surprising as to how does Goddess Laxmiji ever remain in the service of the divine feet of such a God Krushna! But it seems like that she too has lost her being in totality by the sermons and talks of renowned sages and devotees about the deeds and Leelas of God Krushna and has offered to remain permanently with God.
O six footed one, what are you harping about and singing the glorious deeds of the king of the Yadavas , the eternal, timeless and the most ancient God Krushna in front of us, who are now homeless and centred (only on His memory!) . He the friend of the warrior Arjuna, being also Time that devours all and thus helped and guided Arjuna in battle, sing His praises to His other beloveds and wives like Lakshmanji etc. These queens who have attained eternal happiness and delight, and whose all anguishes of the heart have disappeared by being nearer to God Krushna will give you what you desire (scented garlands of sweet fragrant flowers) .
In the heavens, earth or the netherworlds which woman is there who will not be swayed by or it not favourable to that deceiving delightful laughter, with those indicating and inviting movements of eyebrows of the supreme source Krushna? Goddess Laxmiji too stays ever in the service and attainment of the feet dust of God Krushna, then who are we, as compared to Her? And yet, He did favour us, lowly beings, with His infinite grace, and hence the epithet of Uttamshloka – one with renowned glory in all worlds is extremely suitable and appropriate for Him (God Krushna) .
Leave your head which is forcefully kept at our feet, leave our feet at once! By doing the service of a messenger for that emancipation giving God, we are very well aware of your knowledge in slyness and in talk and cleverness with words to pacify and persuade us! Those near relations to us like our children, husbands and friends have we renounced by our centredness on Krushna; who being thankless and without any gratitude has left us. Knowing Him to be so, what is there to negotiate or listen further?
God Krushna, who is not at all like a greedy silent hunter had like one, surreptitiously killed the monkey-like Vali in His incarnation as God Rama (for His friend Sugreeva) . Though infatuated to various women, and by Seetaji and with God Rama, He was the cause of despoiling the looks of Shoorpanakha who came to Him out of intense love. Having tied King Bali up like a crow even after taking all that Bali offered in his sacrifice in His Vamana incarnation…
O we have had enough of this impure friendship with Krushna! Yet the meanings of the sermons of various deeds and Leelas is impossible to renounce!
By listening to those great deeds and Leelas of God, which were described wonderfully by great saints like Vyasji; even by listening to one drop of that ocean of nectar of God’s Leelas; people rise above all opposites in these world and become equanimous and serene; those pious souls, disappear from society and are not seen by all. These poor captivated devotees in their love for God, renounce their houses and relations; many such people have become silent contemplators like the swans, or have become great sages, and many of them in just this one birth adhere to the paths of wandering monks and ascetics.
We, the Gopijanas, trusted totally in the deceitful truths as spoken by God Krushna, like the she-deer who does not recognize the singing hunter who has taken the apparel of a beautiful male-deer; like those deluded she-deers, we the ignorant wives of the Eternal Source Krushna have become ruined in both the ways (having renounced the world and not being God’s ourselves) . Have you seen us thus, we who have become filled with intense love on seeing God Krushna’s nail marks on our bodies and lost in the contemplation O Uddhava, O wise counselor and minister talk of something else!
O friend of our beloved Krushna! Return back – return back again! Has our beloved sent you? Ask for a boon! What is that you desire to have? O friend, you are worth honouring. Where and how will you take all of us Gopijanas (to Him) who cannot leave that which is difficult to renounce, these opposites that stay together always as God and Goddess! O serene one Goddess Laxmiji always resides with Him in His heart!
Aho! Does God Krushna live in Mathura now? Does He ever remember the house of His father Nandji? O serene friend, does He ever remember the people of Gokul, His friends and cousins related to Nandji and Vraj? Does He ever remember or speak of us, the Gopijanas, always in His service? When will He put His sandalwood scented arms on our head?
