Happy Krishna Janmashtami

Dear Friends,
Wish you all a happy Krishna Janmashtami.

மாயனை மன்னு வடமதுரை மைந்தனைத்
தூய பெருநீர் யமுனைத் துறைவனை
ஆயர் குலத்தினில ் தோன்றும் அணிவிளக்கை த்
தாயைக் குடல்விளக் கம் செய்த தாமோதரனைத்
தூயோமாய் வந்துநாம் தூமலர்தூ வித்தொழுது
வாயினால் பாடி மனத்தினால் சிந்திக்கப ்
போய பிழையும் புகுதருவான ் நின்றனவும்
தீயினில் தூசாகும் செப்பேலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

maayanai, mannu vaDamadhurai maindanait
tUya peru nIr yamunait tuRaivanai
aayar kulattinil tOnRum aNiviLakkait
taayaik kuDal viLakkam seyda damOdaranait
tUyOmaay vandu nAm, tUmalar tUvit tozhudu
vaayinAl paaDi manattinaal sindikkap
pOya pizhaiyum pugudaruvaan ninRanavuM
tIyinil tUsaagum seppElOrempaavaay

Some verses from krishna karnAmrutam tritIya AsvAsA 


कोदण्डम् ऐक्षवम् अखण्डम् इषुम् च पौष्पम्
चक्राब्जपाशसृणिकाञ्चनवंशनालम्।
बिभ्राणम् अष्टविधबाहुभिरर्कवर्णम्
ध्यायेद्धरिम् मदनगोपविलासवेषम्॥ ३-१०४

कोदण्डम् ऐक्षवम् अखण्डम् इषुम् च पौष्पम्
चक्र अब्ज पाश सृणि काञ्चन वंश नालम् ।
बिभ्राणम् अष्ट विध बाहुभिः अर्क वर्णम्
ध्यायेत् हरिम् मदन गोप विलास वेषम् ।। ३-१०४

kodaṇḍam aikṣavam akhaṇḍam iṣum ca pauṣpam

bibhrāṇam aṣṭavidhabāhubhirarkavarṇam
dhyāyeddharim madanagopavilāsaveṣam || 3-104

Lord Hari should be meditated upon as MadanagopAla, dhyAyet harim madanagopa vilAsa vesham, wearing in His eight arms, ashTavidha bAhubhi:, the bow of sugarcane, kodaNDam aikshavam strong and unbroken, akhaNDam, the arrow of flowers, ishum ca paushpam, the cakra, Sankha, paaSa, ankuSa and golden flute, cakrAbja paaSa srNi kAncana vamSanaaLam, and His hue red like
the rising sun, arkavarNam.

लावण्यवीचीरचिताङ्गभूषाम् भूषापदारोपितपुण्यबर्हाम्।
कारुण्यधारालकटाक्षमालाम् बालाम् भजे वल्लववंशलक्ष्मीम्॥ ३-१८

लावण्य वीची रचित अङ्ग भूषाम् भूषा पद आरोपित पुण्य बर्हाम्

lāvaṇyavīcīracitāṅgabhūṣām
bhūṣāpadāropitapuṇyabarhām |
kāruṇyadhārālakaṭākṣamālām
bālām bhaje vallavavaṁśalakṣmīm || 3-18

I worship the Lakshmi of the cowherd clan in child form, Who is shining with ornaments that send out the waves of beauty, Who is wearing the peacock feather as a decoration and Whose glances are a stream of mercy. Here Leelasuka describes KrishNa as GopAlasundari or as the Sree of yadAvAs.

KrishNa is the Lakshmi of cowherd clan and hence the feminine gender is used. Her ornaments, angabhUshaNam, send out waves of beauty, lAvaNyaveecee, because they themselves are made beautiful by the beauty of KrishNa. Swamy Desika says in his Yadavabyudaya, 'angai: amitasaundaryai: anukampita bhUshaNam'. The Lord appeared in front of the devAs, who prayed to Him to destroy the evil forces, to assure them that He will take KrishNaavatAra.
There Swamy Desika describes the beauty of the Lord saying that His ornaments were only a reflection of His limbs which were of immeasurable beauty.

The peacock feather decorates the head, bhUshApadAropita puNyabarham, of this Lakshmi which Leelasuka refers to as puNyabarha, the blessed, as it alone had the good fortune of ascending to the head of KrishNa. The glances of this Lakshmi is a flow of mercy, kAruNyadhArA, the quality of mercy is further enhanced by referring to KrishNa as Lakshmi, the divine mother Who is the source of the mercy of the Lord

I worship the Supreme Goddess, parAm devatAm, Whose tresses are decorated with garlands and peacock feathers, mAlAbarha manoj~na
