Narayaneeyam - Dasakam: 76 (Uddava sent as messenger)

उध्दव दूत्यम्
UDDAVA SENT AS MESSENGER


Along with Balarama Krishna went to sage Sandipani's aashram and mastered all knowledge in just 64 days. Thou brought back Thy guru Sandipani's dead son from Yama's abode and gave him by way of Guru-dakshinaa , in the process, acquiring the conch, Panchajanya, from the demon who had kidnapped the Guru's son and swallowed him after killing him, and then,then went back to Thy city sounding the conch Paanchajanya. Repeatedly thinking overwhelming love of the beautiful Gopikas Krishna sent his close friend Uddahava to them with a message.

There he stayed at Nanda's home. At night, Uddhava enquired about Nanda and Yashoda's wellbeing and about Vraj in general. Next day, when the Gopis got the news of Uddhava's arrival, they thronged in and around Nanda's residence. They recognized the chariot parked in front of the gate. It was the same chariot on which Krishna and Balarama had departed for Mathura. First they thought that their beloved Krishna had returned. But The Gopikas saw Uddhava donning charming clothes and ornaments similar to Krishna. They remembered Krishna again and again and his various deeds and sport in great detail and with their throats almost choked with emotion at the thought, they forgot their natural shyness and somehow managed to speak to Uddhava with faltering words.

Gopis said to him: "O gentleman, Is it that you are sent by the heartless Krishna to comfort his parents ? Where is he? The beloved of the city beauties? O Lord O Hari! Protect us. Alas which one of us women can forget the embrace of the nectarine form, the kisses of intense love and the frolicsome words of the beloved one? The Gopikas bemoaned their fate with such words of despair and were overwhelmed with grief. Uddhava comforted them with Krishna’smessage of deep spiritual import. They came to their normal selves and thereafter experienced his inner presence. Uddhava spent some days with the totally devoted Gopikas joyfully and happily narrating various incidents about Krishna.

The Gopikas always sang songs about Krishna. Everywhere while doing their household chores, they narrated Krishna ‘stales, amongst themselves. They even spoke about Krishna in their dreams.Their actions were mostly imitations of Krishna ‘s actions as they tried to personify Krishna .Everything that there, was permeated by Krishna’s presence. Observing all this that great devotee Uddhava was wonderstruck and left stunned.

Uddhava appreciated the extraordinary fortune of the gopis, who were relieved of all material pangs and anxieties by placing on their beautiful high breasts the lotus feet of Krishna which are worshiped not only by the goddess of fortune but by such exalted demigods as Brahma and Lord Siva, and which great yogis meditate upon within their hearts. Thus Uddhava prayed to be constantly honored by the dust from the lotus feet of the gopis, whose chanting of Lord Krishna's transcendental pastimes has become celebrated all over the three worlds.

Uddhava consoled and comforted those Gopikas and mitigated their grief with krishna’swords, such as : "I shall come back to you soon; only pressure of work has so fardelayed my coming, grieve not even while I am away, since memory of past association is strong and firm; very soon, with the attainment of Brahmananda, meeting or separation will become one and the same to you.

After living in Vrndavana for some time, Uddhava desired to go back to Krishna, and he begged permission to leave from Nanda Maharaja and Yasoda. He had a farewell meeting with the gopis, and, taking permission from them also, he mounted his chariot to start for Mathura.Krishna heart was filled with delight on seeing Uddhava back from Gokula. Uddhava joyfully exclaimed by the devotion of the Gopikas to Krishna Such devotion is neither seen nor heard of in the whole world. Of what use is the study of so many scriptures and the practices there in. And what is the use here of all penances. May there be salutations to the Gopikaas.'

Gokula's prosperity was an indication of the magnitude of Thy greatness. Reaching there in the evening, Uddhava delighted Nanda and Yashodaa with Thy many news. In the morning the lotus eyed women of Gokula saw the bejewelled chariot and suspected Thy arrival. They came to know that one of Thy emissaries had come. Abandoning their work, they gathered at the house of Nandagopa.
