Chapter 41: The Lords' Arrival in Mathurâ

 

(1) S'rî S'uka said: 'While he [Akrûra] was praying, Krishna, the Supreme Lord, having shown His personal form in the water, withdrew Himself the way an actor winds up his performance. (2) When he saw that the image had disappeared, he emerged from the water, quickly finished his different ritual duties and surprised went to the chariot. (3) Hrishîkes'a asked him: 'Have you seen something miraculous on the earth, in the heavens or in the water? We gather you did!'

(4) S'rî Akrûra said: 'Whatever wonderful things there may be out here on earth, in the sky or in the water, are all situated in You who comprise everything; what would I, seeing You, not have seen? (5) Beholding You, the One Person in whom all wonders of the earth, the sky and the waters are found, oh Absolute of the Truth, what else that I see in this world would amaze me?'

(6) With those words the son of Gândinî [Akrûra] drove the chariot forward to take Râma and Krishna to Mathurâ [where they arrived] at the end of the day. (7) The people of the villages who here and there on the road approached Them, were pleased to see the sons of Vasudeva oh King, and could not take their eyes off Them. (8) In the meantime, Nanda, the gopas and the rest of the inhabitants of Vraja had arrived there and stayed in a park outside the city to wait for Them. (9) Catching up with them the Supreme Lord, the Master of the Universe, said to the humbly smiling Akrûra while taking his hand into His own: (10) 'You go ahead of Us to the city with the chariot and go home. We will rest here and then see the city.'

(11) S'rî Akrûra said: 'How can I enter Mathurâ without the two of You oh Master? Do not let me down oh Lord, oh Caretaker of the Devotees, I am Your devotee! (12) Please oh supreme well-wisher, come together with Your elder brother, the gopas and Your friends to our house so that it is graced with its Master oh Lord of the Beyond. (13) I am a householder of sacrifice, please bless our home with the dust of Your feet so that my forefathers, the sacrificial fires and the demigods will be satisfied. (14) The great king Bali by bathing Your two feet became glorious [see 8.19] and achieved unequaled power as also the destination reserved for unalloyed devotees. (15) The pure water washing from Your feet and received by Lord S'iva on his head [9.9], has sanctified the three worlds so that the sons of king Sagara [9.8] attained heaven. [9.9] (16) Oh God of the Gods, oh Master of the Universe about whom one piously hears and chants, oh Best of the Yadus, oh Lord Praised in the Verses, oh Lord Nârâyana, let there be the obeisance unto You.'

(17) The Supreme Lord said: 'I will come to your house accompanied by My elder brother. After killing My enemy in the midst of the Yadus [Kamsa], I will grant My well-wishers the satisfaction.'

(18) S'rî S'uka said: 'After thus being addressed by the Supreme Lord, Akrûra somewhat disheartened entered the city. He informed Kamsa on his efforts and thereupon went home. (19) Later in the afternoon Krishna together with Sankarshana [Râma] and the gopas entered Mathurâ to take a look around. (20-23) There He saw the high gates and doorways of crystal, front doors and immense archways of gold, storehouses of copper and brass and inviolable moats, [everywhere] beautified by public gardens and attractive parks. The intersections decorated with gold, the mansions with their pleasure gardens, the assembly halls of the guilds and the houses with their columned balconies as also the ornate paneled rafters, were bedecked with vaidûrya gems, diamonds, quartz crystals, sapphires, coral, pearls and emeralds. Sounds vibrated of the pet doves and peacocks that sat in the openings of the lattice windows and on the gem-studded floors. The avenues, streets and courtyards were sprinkled with water  and [for a welcome] were strewn with garlands, new sprouts, parched grains and rice. The doorways of the houses were nicely decorated with pots filled with yogurt smeared with sandalwood paste, ribbons and flower petals, rows of lamps, leaves, bunches of flowers, trunks of banana trees and betel nut trees and flags. (24) As the sons of Vasudeva entered there surrounded by Their friends oh King, the women of the city, eager for a look, all hurried to stand along the main road and climb on top of the houses. (25) Some had put on their clothes backwards and forgotten one of their pair of ornaments, putting on only one earring or one set of ankle bells. Other ladies made up one eye but not the other one. (26) Some in their excitement had abandoned the meals they were taking or did not finish their massage. They left their bathing or, hearing the commotion, got up not finishing their nap. Others as mothers put aside the infant they were feeding milk. (27) Walking like a bull elephant in rut, He boldly stole their minds with the glances of His lotus eyes and the game of His smiles. With His body, that source of pleasure to the Goddess of Fortune, He afforded their eyes a festival. (28) Seeing Him whom they repeatedly had heard about, their hearts melted. Receiving the honor of being sprinkled by the nectar of His glances and broad smiles, they, with goose pimples, through their eyes innerly embraced their idol, this embodiment of ecstasy, and gave up their endless distress [of missing Him] oh subduer of the enemies. (29) Having climbed the rooftops of their mansions, the playful women, with faces blooming like lotuses because of their love, showered Balarâma and Kes'ava with flowers. (30) With yogurt, barleycorns and pots filled with water, fragrant substances and other items of worship the Two were joyfully worshiped at every step by the brahmins. (31) The women of the city said: 'Oh what great austerity the gopîs must have performed to may constantly witness these Two, who for human society are the greatest source of pleasure.'

(32) Krishna, the elder brother of Gada [see 9.24: 46] approached a certain washerman engaged in dyeing and asked him for first class, clean garments. (33) 'Please, oh best man, give the two of Us some suitable clothes. When you donate them to Us, who deserve it, that will bring You the highest benefit, that suffers no doubt!'

(34) Requested by the Supreme Lord who is complete and perfect in every way, he most falsely proud as a servant of the king, indignantly said full of anger: (35) 'Is it no impudence of You who roam the mountains and the forests, to desire to wear garments like these belonging to the king? (36) Get lost You fools, do not beg like this if You want to live! I swear, people as bold as You, are arrested, looted and killed by the king's men!'

(37) Thus humiliating Them he raised the anger of the son of Devakî who with the side of one hand hit his head from his body. (38)  When his assistants fled in all directions, they left behind bundles of clothes. Acyuta took the garments. (39) Krishna and Balarâma dressed Themselves with a set of clothes to Their liking, threw several of them on the ground and gave the rest to the gopas. (40) Thereupon a weaver came who full of love for Them befittingly ornamented Their clothes with pieces of cloth of different colors. (41) Krishna and Râma with each His own specific high quality outfit and nice decorations, looked as resplendent as a pair of young elephants, one light and one dark, adorned for a festival. (42) The Supreme Lord being pleased with the weaver, granted him sârûpya, in this world to be liberated with the same supreme opulence, physical strength, influence, memory and sense control [the grace of His characteristics, see also mukti].

(43) They both next went to the house of Sudâmâ ['well-giving'], the garland-maker. Seeing Them he stood up and bowed down putting his head to the ground. (44) He brought seats for Them, water to wash Their feet and hands, presents and such and honored Them and Their companions with garlands, betel nut and sandalwood paste. (45) He said: 'Our birth has been worthwhile and the family has been purified oh Master. Together with me, my forefathers, the gods and the seers are satisfied that You came here.  (46) You two, who constitute the Ultimate Cause of the Universe, have with Your plenary portions descended to this world for its protection and happiness. (47) Even though You reciprocate with those who are of worship, with You there is no bias in Your vision. You as the Soul of the Universe, are as well-wishing friends equal to all living beings. (48) You Two should order me, Your servant, what I should do for You. For this is for anyone the greatest blessing: to be appointed by You.'

(49) S'uka said: 'Thus understanding what to do oh best of kings, Sudâmâ, steeped in love, presented garlands made of fresh and fragrant flowers. (50) Beautifully adorned with them the two benefactors Krishna and Râma, who together with Their companions were most satisfied, granted the surrendered soul who bowed down, every benediction that he wished for. (51) He chose for an unshakable devotion unto Him alone, the Supreme soul of the Complete Whole, for friendship with all living beings and for the blessing of transcendence. (52) Thus blessing him with prosperity, a thriving family, strength, a long life, renown and beauty, He left together with His elder brother.'
