Shubh ShriRam Navami to everyone!!! So here's an account of his birthday celebration by me and @aarsha_ns Didi. We planned this birthday and executed it with Ma Sita along with our team for our ShriRam Feel free to be the part of our team and plan! Have a great great day for its ShriRam's birthday party!!!!!
Okay, so this idea most twenty first century devotees like that ShriHari should've a phone and a Vaishnav Chat (app like insta perhaps invented by me ), so that every Vaishnav, every devotee, could chat with him easily.. So I added this element for fun. And, I am not lying ShriRam was really making a face these days... And Sita Ma also looked confused.. So Aarsha Di told me to fondle him, like really he smiles when you give him love filled attention. So don't ignore ShriRam today, play with him, love him, worship him, celebrate the day and MAKE HIM HAPPY!

Jay ShriHari! Jay ShrimanNarayana! ShriHari bless all! ❤️
One who is the embodiment of truth, eternity and is the King among Acharyas One who is the beloved of Narayana, and is himself his throne called 'Shesha' Whose deities are ShriVishnu and The Lotus Goddess Lakshmi themselves Obeisances again and again to such ShriRamanuja!
One, in whom, the vices of attachment, pleasure etc are absent One who is worshiped by all hymns and Vedas One who himself is the elder brother of Goddess ShriGodha Obeisances again and again to such ShriRamanuja!
One who is eternal, the Greatest, the destroyer of wrong and destructive knowledge One who knows the summary of all Vedas There's no one like him, he's eternally knowledgeable, and Infinite (ShriAnanta) Obeisances again and again to such ShriRamanuja!
Come my Lord of matchless charm Fill me in your embrace which is warm Let me be a magnet to your feet And worry further not for my heaps of sins Come Oh Murare, vanquisher of my sigh Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
Oh Lord who measured the skies and the earth Infinity times who took various births You are birthless, yet you come for the poor You are the helper of the helpless in despair Come for me too, much dark is this night Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
When Partha lost his way, in the battlefield Out of grief, he approached your lotus feet When Vibhishan came, grieved by his brother You caressed the forsaken like a loving Mother Your feet are approached always by the wise Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
You took Rukmini at once, when she called you Only you are fit to be approached by hearts which are true I am a fallen one, my heart is fraught with lies Oh Merciful, still kindly heed to my plight! Come before my darkness sings me a lullaby
*Aapath/Aapadh Bandhava means one who gets us out of our troubles and problems.
If in this life, my darkness comes before he does to protect me, I will sleep surrounded in the darkness deprived of the light he is. If I am not able to see him before my eyes close in the darkness I have always been, my life, my each breath would be worthless, if he doesn't hear my plead to save me from this darkness, I don't know when next would I get a human birth to contemplate on him.
This human birth is very very precious, use it wisely to sing his praise and come out of darkness for when it ends, you never know when you will be human again and be able to approach him for no other being can do devotion like a human until and unless he is graced by ShriBhagwan or ShriVaishnavas themselves.
time_passbecause you are not close to God, dont ever think that you are bad ( in your about ), my chotta behen. There is a lot of difference between these two. I am commenting here only because i had the same thought few years back. You might be far away from your expectation of divinity, but still you are filled with virtues. The world has so much filth and dirt, that I reckon, they may even call you divine. Strive to reach a more divine state of body and mind; but even if you do not succeed, never call yourself bad. You are too good to not recognise the brightness of the pearl you wear
shrihari_nandini@time_pass I am so overwhelmed by your kind words Bhaiya.. But the truth is that I may even seem divine, however I am far from it.. I am really bad.. And I have known it.. From a lot of other factors which are unknown to the world.. And I want to say the truth. I don't want anyone to believe that I am virtous or great whereas in reality I am not.. I know and Bhagwan knows what demons lurk in me but I know he will defeat them one day. I know..
time_pass@shrihari_nandini this is exactly how i spoke when i was in class 9, and thankfully i had one good friend who used to console me and make me understand about the practical world. Today i realise, how good i was back then. I have a small idea of what is going through your mind. And i also know that it would be very difficult to make you convince the truth. But to my young sister, i have a request. Dont be over religious and blindly go by the wordings of sacred texts, if you read any. You cannot incorporate it whole, or even a part of it into your real life. Still, it is okay. Life is not meant to be always good. Look at krishna. He was never a good man, he was a practical man. He killed hundreds of thousands of people. But he did it for a good intention. You can never relate him to an ideal human being, because he had also done all kinds of mischief. Yet, at every point, he had empathy in his heart. So, i suggest that you do not make an attempt to wear an ideal attire within you. Try to live as profoundly as possible. You have enough and more innocence within you. Trust me in that. You are sadly admitting that you are bad only because you have a big innocent mind within. Retain that innocence, thats all what you need to do.. dont get yourself down over this small stuff dear.. for you are one who can generate more joy around.
shrihari_nandini@time_pass Maybe you're right about it.. We cannot be exactly as perfect as our texts tell.. I tried very hard, but whenever I am not able to do all the things I am supposed to do.. (Worship, humility, devotion) I feel very low about myself, like a misfit in the world of devotees. ShriKrishna is always perfect and his each act is perfect. He never did a wrong.. And he is purely good. I don't think I should compare my imperfect self with him, bhaiya I try to be good (things that am supposed to do)... I fail.. I don't know if I would ever be able to do it, unless I develop complete faith on ShriHari.. You're so nice Bhaiya, you made me feel nice about myself today.. A big Thank You ☺ if I get back to myself, my child like self, then that really would be my greatest present ❤ Thanks a lot! Jaya ShrimanNarayana!
time_passSorry for long comments mere behen, but like I said, you speak exactly like the old me. Thats why i am typing such lengthy texts. I might be wrong in telling this, because 'what is krishna' depends on how we percieve him. But i feel that being imperfect is like being Krishna. You might be looking at him as a deity, an idol or a super power. This is the same way how i looked at him 4-5 years back. But now for me, Krishna is just a human being, who could do more than humane, because of the control he had over his life energies. Still, his life was a complete struggle to implement his plan of social welfare. He had failed many a times, but he was very happy with it. He was an ecstacy generating machine. Even after being so strong, Krishna could not do anything to stop the dyooth sabha from happening where draupadi got insulted. Krishna could not stop the war from happening, where millions died. He could not save Abhimanyu or the little pandavas. At the end, everyone blamed him. Krishna fought all through his life to rehabilitate dharma, and at the end, all criticisms ended upon him. Still, he was as happy as he could ever be. He didnt even bother what people said about him. That is the clarity Krishna had on himself. And you know, Krishna had even gone against rules and ethics of the war. Drona was killed in an unjust manner, and so was Karna. Yet, Krishna didnt even bother to regret about that. Because he knew why he did all this. So, i feel that it is not necessary to be the ideal and ordered person. As long as your conscience is aware of what you are, never stop yourself from taking a new road. These all are just my views. I dont know how you get it. But i really pray that you be in the right track towards realising the ultimate. keep your innocence as well
*I here use the words Gods because here I mean to say people who consider themselves as God and who are rich and egoistic due to that. God is only one, writing Gods isn't correct. For celestials other than ShrimanNarayana, they are called Devi- Devatas.
I am tired of my foolish mind and desires. If someone could gift me the taste of ShriVishnu's Lotus Feet then I will be an unpaid servant to him/her. (This is the role of an Acharya though one who joins us with His Lotus Feet is an Acharya and none else.)
✿ ! ! ✿
: To the original owner : A devotee's property, ShriRangaNatha's lotus feet on Devuthani Ekadashi.
ShriVallabhAcharya wrote MadhurAshtakam on ShriKrishn. It had eight paragraphs describing the various attributes of Bhagwaan, but it had only one adjective that is 'Madhur' or 'Sweet' each line ending with MadhurAdhiPaterAkhilam Madhuram' meaning everything is sweet about the Lord of Sweetness.
Just like a lover finds everything about his loved one as sweet, his speech, his voice, his gait, his smile, his hands, his feet, his eyes, his eye movements and everything, similarly did Shri VallabhAcharya wrote about our Bhagwan with whom he was in love with.
It is veryyyyyyyyyyy sweet to hear and recite. In fact it is said to be the favourite hymn of Bhagwan ShriKrishna himself! No wonder it is a gem in itself!
My best friend and my sister @aarsha_ns di told me to write something similar on ShriRaam. Since I do not know Sanskrit, I gave my naive attempt to write something like this in Hindi for ShriRaam Bhagwan with eight paragraphs using the adjective Madhur in each line for each of his attribute and the last line for each para being 'Akhil Madhur SiyaNaath', that is 'The Lord of Siya is entirely sweet' ❤
And on this occasion of Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami, I am sharing it with everyone. Let's celebrate the sweetness of the King and Queen of Sweetness- ShriSeethaRaam!!!
In this last part, of ShriLakshmi Charit, I have described the Kripa (Mercy) of Devi Lakshmi, and the opulences she can provide. She being the Supreme Mother, there is absolutely nothing impossible for her. Therefore, she provides to one the blessings of wealth (Dhan), crops(Dhaanya), progeny (Santaan), Victory (Vijay), Dhairya (Patience), Boons (Vardaan), devotion to her and Narayana (Bhakti) and lastly the most important goal of human life, Liberation (Mukti). She is the one who guides the path of sages, she is the one who provides one the supreme knowledge to attain Moksha and service to ShriLakshmiNarayana. She destroys all inauspiciousness and gives rise to all kinds of auspiciousness for us and her devotees, Sharnagatas! She is the Goddess of My Heart ❤ Hence I pray to her to provide endless mercy to that person who recites this hymn 'ShriLakshmi Charit' daily or routinely.

The one well worshipped by Vaishnavas is Lakshmi The deity of all Vaishnavas is Lakshmi The one who provides devotion to ShriVishnu is Lakshmi The one who provides the fruit of Liberation is Lakshmi The personification of all qualities is Lakshmi The Mistress of the entire movable and non movable matter is Lakshmi The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
The ocean of endless mercy is Lakshmi The provider of endless bliss is Lakshmi The one who is always present on the feet of Keshav is Lakshmi The Goddess of Narayana's heart is Lakshmi The shelter of those who seek refuge in her is Lakshmi The one served by all devotees is Lakshmi The daughter of the Ocean is the youthful Lakshmi Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi
Explanation: ShriLakshmi has an important role is Sharnagati. In fact in ShriVaishnav Tilak the two white lines represent Jeeva and Parmatma and the red line in between represents Ma Lakshmi. In the ninth para, I have described her rulership over everything, therefore she can provide the Supreme Bliss to anyone by her grace alone. She very mercifully provides her grace to the ones who take shelter in her. (Sharnagatas). She always present on the feet of Narayana where one jeeva can approach him, not only this she is also present in his heart forever. Therefore, she from one side she welcomes the Jeevas in serving Hari and on the other side she being the Queen of Hari's Heart, makes him forgive all sins and trespasses of Jeevas and makes them eligible to serve them. And then, she very lovingly gives them the fortune of serving both her and her Lord forever in ShriVaikuntha. This is her mercy!!!!!
Here, I have described about ShriLakshmi's Avatars along with Narayana. We discussed previously, that both are equal in qualities and compassion. And out of that compassion to save the Jeevas from Samsar Sagar, they both descend time after time. After being the wife of Narayana, Lakshmi takes up this duty along with him, being a constant companion fulfilling the Sankalpa(will) of Narayana to save all Jeevas.
श्रीलक्ष्मी चरित ७ -भव्या गोगिया
हरि संग सदैव उपस्थित लक्ष्मी नित्य अवतरित हरि व लक्ष्मी अधर्म विनाशिनी देवी लक्ष्मी भक्त जन पालिनी देवी लक्ष्मी पतिव्रता तुलसी श्रीलक्ष्मी भृगु पुत्री श्रीभार्गवी लक्ष्मी सागर कन्या किशोरी लक्ष्मी जय जय जय श्रीदेवी लक्ष्मी |८|

The one who is always present with Hari is Lakshmi Those who always descend (for us) are Hari and Lakshmi The one who destroys Adharma is Goddess Lakshmi The Nurturer of Devotees is Devi Lakshmi The chaste wife Tulsi is ShriLakshmi The daughter of Bhrigu, hence called ShriBhargavi is Lakshmi The daughter of the Ocean is the Youthful Lakshmi Victory Victory & Victory be to Shridevi Lakshmi |8|
Explanation: Lakshmi is always present with Hari and both out of their compassion to save us, destroy Adharma and nurture devotees descend in various forms. Tulsi Devi, the pious chaste wife is said to be a form of ShriLakshmi only, she was married to ShriVishnu. Then, she became the daughter of Bhrigu and Khyati and married ShriVishnu. When Bhagwan came as ShriNarsimha, she came as Chenchu Lakshmi. When Bhagwan became Vaaman, she was called Padma. When he was the upholder of Dharma, ShriRaam, she was the purest and the most pious Devi Seetha. When he came as the gem of Yadukul, (dynasty of King Yadu) and the child of Braj Bhumi, she descended as Rukmini Ma. Nila Devi became Ma Nappinai or Ma Nagnjeeti and Bhudevi became Ma Satyabhama. Here, Bhudevi and Niladevi are seen as forms of Lakshmi as we discussed previously (Antaryamitva and qualities).

Explanation: As the Primordial Couple ShriLakshmiNarayana got married, I have further described, the qualities of ShriLakshmi with respect to ShriVishnu being her husband. Both have an equal status, being eternal and all pervading. Both are the object of worship by the Vedas, Puranas, and Itihaas too.
Vishnu Puran Book 1 Chapter 8 Shloka 17 ShriParashar said: Oh Best Among Twice Born Ones! The one who never leaves the side of Vishnu, the Mother of the World, ShriLakshmi is eternal and all pervading just like him.
Further in Shloka 34 To say in brief, in Devatas, Manushyas and all entities, the Masculine Form is that of Vishnu and the Feminine is that of Lakshmi (Antaryamitva), there is nothing that exists besides these too.
ShriVishnu is solely dedicated to ShriLakshmi and ShriLakshmi is solely dedicated to ShriVishnu. Both are revered as Divya Dampatis, the Primordial Couple!
ally_18Aha..❤️❤️❤️ each time reading ShriLaxmicharitt I feel sooo calm and relax, Yes They are the divine couple of the universe very very beautifully explained dear! May your all wishes come true, Maa and Our blue Pitaji would be the happiest one to see this❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Thankyou for writing this dear! Jai ShriVishnuLaksmi!♀️♀️
Explanation: Here the position of Lakshmi is explained being VishnuPatni- the wife of ShriVishnu and her glories apart from that as well. Being the empress, and the origin of all Goddesses, ShriLakshmi is worshipped by Shiv Ji, Brahma Dev etc. They all rever her! She is the friend of Parvati and Saraswati Devis who always worship her and adore her, as she is their origin. She is the great MahaLakshmi! She always dons a form alike that of Bhagwaan Narayana, as per his desire and mindset. This is also described in greater detail in the Book 1 Chapter 8 and 9 of ShriVishnu Puran (it's so sweet to read ) When Bhagwan dons a human form, she too becomes a human wife according to him. Even in Matsya, Kurma avatars she accompanied him, always in different forms. Bhagwaan and Devi are never separate. They are like Sun and Sunlight, Flower and Fragrance. She is always presiding on the chest of ShriVishnu. The ShriVatsa mark on his chest marks her presence on it eternally and forever...
After knowing about her beauty and chief characteristics, everyone wished to have her- The Matchless Goddess. All the apsaras (celestial nymphs) that arose from the Ocean were not even a spark of Lakshmi's beauty. But to be Lakshmi Pati- The Husband of Lakshmi, only a person who is equal to her was eligible. Only Parmatma ShrimanNarayana could be her bridegroom. In ShrimadBhagwatam, Gopikas describe him as Shriyah Ekant Vallabham- The Sole Husband of ShriLakshmi. In fact Lakshmi is the defining feature of Parmatma. Vedas call the one Parmatma, who is the 'Husband of Lakshmi' and none else. When her marriage was being conducted, Lakshmi looked around for her suitable bridegroom (of course she knew, it was just a leela). Everyone whether Asuras or Devatas had one or the other taints, none was completely pure. Then Lakshmi's eyes fell on Vishnu, who was the blemishless Parmatma, the Antaryami of All, the Abode of Shudh Satva, whom sins never touch. ShriVishnu who is always ShriyahPati got enchanted by the beauty of her beloved wife. And Lakshmi too got enchanted by the matchless form of ShriHari. Hence, she garlanded Vishnu as her Husband, and this was their another leela of being united. In Vishnu Puran, Rishi Matreya asks Rishi Parashar, that if Lakshmi arose from Ocean and has a birth then how come, she be eternal like Vishnu? To which Rishi Parashar replies, that Lakshmi is Vishnu's eternal companion. And both of them are always engaged in their infinite pastimes and keep enjoying their union in each leela. The Samudra Manthan was another of their leela to get united and enjoy their love pastimes. Lakshmi is all pervading alike Vishnu, she always resides on his chest as the Shrivatsa Mark. When he becomes Raam, She becomes Seetha, when he is Krishna, she becomes Rukmini. They are never separate.
@harvest_of_mind It depends on the context actually. Here it refers only to ShriVishnu. Since he is not separate from Lakshmi, whose another name is Shri, so when we call ShriHari Or Shri with any of Hari's names, it automatically includes her. However, Shri is also to give respect, so if we have to say their name separately (which is actually impossible ) we say ShriVishnu and ShriLakshmi. Thank you so much! Jaya ShriLakshmiNarayana! ❤
@ally_18 Well said Didi!!! A big thanks to you for all your praise. All glories go to them and ShriVaishnavas only ☺ Jaya Jaya ShriLakshmiNarayana! ❤
*Abhaya Pose is the pose of right hand raised upright which displays, that She grants us fearlessness from all fears. Varadaa Pose is the left hand pointing downwards showing that she grants us various things and boons (gold coins are seen flowing from her left hand)
Continuing my series, Shri Lakshmi Charit, the auspicious story of ShriMahaLakshmi recited as a hymn. As we saw previously, Devi Lakshmi emerged from Ksheer Sagar and came to be known as the daughter of the Ocean. She was welcomed and eulogized by everyone. Let's see her description as percieved by everyone when she appeared.

Note: We generally know Devi Lakshmi as wearing a red or bridal Saree but many great poets and scriptures have described her as one adorned in a white Saree. (Took this information from @parth_madhav bhaiya )
When I was a child, I used to watch Barbie movies. One of those was 'Barbie and the Princess Charm School'. Also, I had a special attraction to Rosetta, one of Tinker Bell Series Fairies and wanted to become such a fairy. In the movie of Charm School, each Princess was assisted by a personal Fairy Assistant, who follows her and serves her. She arranges her make up, hair etc. I have attached a little image of the main Princess with her Fairy Assistant. I wish to be such a fairy for my Lakshmi Ma!!! Hence, I made a little drawing depicting this dream, I am the fairy in Ma Lakshmi's hand! (I know am not good at drawing but I had to draw this)❤❤❤ Well why, would I child prefer to be a Doctor/Engineer/Lawyer, when she can be the Fairy of her Mother!!!

So, ShriHari as the little cowherd boy Krishna once did a mischief like this: Once in Gokul, Krishna teased a little Gopika, she was a bit annoyed, Krishna sensed this, and said okay close your eyes, there's a surprise for you! She did so, and Krishna took a pebble and made her moustache through it. All the children laughed at her and Krishna ran away. So, this is terrible, such a mischievous person. I thought and thought and thought, what if he does that with me too??? So, I planned when Kannan will be sleeping on Sheshnaag along with Ma Lakshmi, in his four month sleep, I shall make his moustache by a pebble Pari is my nickname ❤ Tension in Vaikuntha due to my plan:-
I know my childish mind can't think better. Specially it can't realise that I am dealing with the Supreme Lord of crores of Universes. He shall forgive me since he loves me, says the last four lines. ♀️ That's what I seek from him, forgiveness. By the way, the Lord in Shri Rukmini Parthsarthy Temple, has a moustache!
✿ ! ! ✿
: Google and YouTube, Collage by me. : Krishna making Gopika's fake moustache, and Lord Parthsarthy with moustache. This Krishna scene is taken from the song, Gokul Dham Biraj Ka Vaasi, from Krishna- Green Gold Animations.
Who is Kanna? The one who listens to us, in the same way we wish to convey, even if we say it or not. Kanha word is derived from the word Kanna.
Who is Vattpatrashayi? The one who rests on Banyan leaf, at the time of desolution (Pralaya), is called Vattpatra (banyan leaf) shayi (who rests). This is the form called Narayana.
Why He licks the thumb of his own feet? He does so because our Lord, whose Lotus Feet are eulogised by Vedas, Highest Sages and His Devotees, their nectar is unknown to him! He wishes to taste his own sweetness! Oh Madhav! And also, when he is performing his Yognidra on Sheshnaag, then too Bhagwaan, contemplates on his own sweet form!
Let's today contemplate on the various leelas of Bhagwaan Krishna and drown ourselves in the ocean of his auspicious qualities.

: This is the first verse from Bal Mukund Ashtakam:-
Meaning: My Mind Remembers that Beautiful Bala Mukundam, Who with His Lotus like Hands holds His Lotus like Feet, and Puts the Toe in His Lotus like Mouth, He Rests on the Fold of the Banyan Leaf (Vata), My Mind Remembers that Beautiful Bala Mukundam.
harvest_of_mind@shrihari_nandini When father doesn't listen, we'll ask for party to daughter only ☺️. Just joking. You have already given party by writing a long awaited wonderful post. May He be pleased with His daughter and bless her and fulfill all her pious wishes, on the occasion of his birthday.
anvayaBeautiful. I love your efforts in preserving our culture. Dedicating one's work of art to God is the highest form of art. ☺️ Also, best of luck for your exams.
@anvaya Thank You Anvaya! Glad to see you back after long! Definitely, work dedicated to ShriBhagwaan, is the best. May ShriBhagwaan lead all of us to this path! Thanks, my exams went well. Jaya ShrimanNarayana!
Kanna- Krishna, literally means the one who listens exactly how we wish to hear even if we can't express it. Manivanna- The Gem Hued Lord (ShriVishnu)
My Ma's coming to me, She is coming to me soon My Godha, for whom I have waited so eagerly, she's gonna come now. She's the personification of Lord Hari's forbearance (BhuDevi herself) and She is herself MahaLakshmi (no difference between Shri and Bhu and Neela Matas) Let's recite the first shloka of Godha Stuti as I always did so that she comes to me soon ☺
Sri VishNu chittha kula nandhana kalpavallIm Sri RangarAja Harichandhana yOga dhrusyAm SaakshAth KshamAm karuNayA KamalAmivAnyAm GodhAm ananyasaraNa: SaraNam prapadhyE
MEANING: Oh GodhE! adiyEn performs prapatthi at Your sacred feet as one, who has no other recourse! adiyEn has no one else for my protection. You are the KalpakA creeper adorning the Lord standing as the auspicious Harichandanaa tree in the flower garden of the kulam of VishNucchitthar, Your father. The darsanam of the celestial Harichandanaa tree united with You as the KalpakA creeper is a blessed sight to see. In Your limitless patience with the aparAdhis, who transgress Your Lord's commands, You appear verily like BhUmi Devi; in Your limitless compassion, You resemble MahA Lakshmi Herself. AdiyEn offers my prapatthi at Your sacred feet as the one,who has no other means.

Happiest Birthday to our dearmost ShriGodha Maa ❤❤❤❤ For her story, you can refer to my post in ShriRaasRaajeshwar 2. #ShriGodha_story
Here, in this poem, I ask my little Godha to come crawl in my lap and make me feel blissful and alive. Oh the Most Compassionate Mother, come to me and stay with me! Her face is purely Anandmayi (Blissful), and it gives me immense joy. I get joyful watching her little hands and feet ready to embrace me and the little smile curled on her lotus like Face. Her complexion is Greenish ❤ I wish ShriGodha comes to me and sits on my lap soon and embrace me. So, that the world sees her Infinite Compassion, that she the loving mother, embraces even her most sinning children like me! When she, the shining green pearl will sit on my lap, we'll look together as the rusty oyester holding an exquisite pearl! While I am a sinner faded as an oyester, she would be my only source of beauty (bliss) when I hold her. Just compare a pearl sitting in a rusty oyester and then me holding ShriGodha in my lap And bow down to her compassion and forbearance! Therefore I wish, the Lotus feet of the compassionate Mother live forever in My Heart without any obstacles! ❤
Happiest Birthday to the Queen of ShriRangNayak (ShriVishnu) ❤

So, the next Bhaav I pick is Madhurya, the cherished Bhaav which compels even the great sages and men to turn their get up to a women just to cherish ShriBhagwaan as their lover. When Krishna did the Raasleela, all Devatas from Indra to Mahadeva, the husband of Mata Gauri, came as Gopikas to do Raas with Krishna. Among the Azhwars, Nammazhwar turned into Parangkush Nayaki and other Azhwars too, sorry for my lack of knowledge there are many many instance like this, so many to name. Andal or Godha Mayya- She was situated in Madhurya Bhaav, Completely surrendered to her Narayana, Her Kanna. Her story in brief: She is BhuDevi herself. Periyazhwar who used to do garland seva for Bhagwaan found her in his flower garden and took her as his daughter, he raised her up in the devotion to Kanna or Krishna ❤ She used to wear the garlands by Periyazhwar first before they went to Narayana, and imagine herself as his beloved bride, one day her Father found this out. So, without saying a word to her, he made another garland for Lord, a fresh one. But the garland fell from the Murthi, meaning the Lord didn't accept it. In his dream, the Lord informed Periyazhwar that he shall wear only those garlands which were first offered to Godha And also, the Lord, called upon the King of the place in his dream, that prepare for Godha to get her married to me, in the RangNath Temple. The next day, with pomp and show, Godha was brought to the temple and there she merged into the idol of RangNath after being married to him at the age of sixteen! Such was her devotion, her two texts are Thirupavvai and Nachiyar Thirumozhi While Vedant Deshikan extols her greatness in ShriGodha Stuti by him.
I am sharing a verse from Nachiyar Thirumozhi, when Godha Ma tells a cuckoo to warble sweetly to call Hari who is separated from her, while the cuckoo has her love mate with her, Godha Ma doesn't, therefore she calls for that cuckoo.
Oh cuckoo! My sorrow has infiltrated even into my bones (and has caused them to melt). My eyes that can be compared to deep piercing spears (vEl) are not able to even close. I have been struggling in the ocean of sorrowful separation for a long, long time because I do not have the help of SrI vaikuNTha nAthan who will serve like a boat for me to cross the ocean of sorrow. Oh cuckoo! You know well the grief that arises from separation from the beloved one! Please do warble sweetly so that kaNNan who has a body that shines likes gold, who is the embodiment of dharma and who has garuDa flag, will come to me!
Now my poem: I am not at all situated in Madhurya bhaav forgive me, my friends for this, but yes, one thing is true, when it comes to a Lover or a Husband I won't choose a man other than My ShrimanNarayana! Moreover, Madhurya requires the blessings of Ma ShriLakshmi and I am a person without any such good attributes, but yes since I am attached to them, My LakshmiNarayana shall never forsake me!
