Śrī Kṛṣhṇa līlas -2

(continuation of this story)
This series of stories on Śrī Kṛṣhṇa līlas try to bring out some durguṇas, commonly found in people, and thus warn us to be away from the same.

Tṛṇāvarta Bhañjanam:

Bāla Kṛṣhṇa was sitting on the lap of Yaśoda. A dānava by name Tṛṇāvarta came in the form of a tornado. Suddenly the Baby became as heavy as a mountain and Yaśoda put the baby on the ground, not able to carry the Bālaka. Huge air storm came and blew off the tops of many kuṭīrs. Sand dust filled Yośoda's view and the Baby was missing. All the Gopikas started to search for Śrī Kṛṣhṇa.


Bāla Kṛṣhṇa went into the sky along with Tṛṇāvarta and mounted his back. He became so heavy that the dānava could not anymore bear the weight. The dānava was trying to smash the Baby onto the ground. Small Kṛṣhṇa squeezed his throat and the dānava fell on the ground and lost his life. The Baby started playing on the dānava's mṛta deham. The Vrajavanitas brought Śrī Kṛṣhṇa back to Yaśoda safely and made her very happy. She removed dṛṣhṭi for the Paramātma, made Vedāśīrvacanas to be given and did many Go-Bhū dānas. She told Śrī Kṛṣhṇa to stop doing mischief and made him sleep on a svarṇa āṇḍolikā, in between silk gilpas (cushions).


Tṛṇāvarta's Caritra:

Sahasrākṣha used to rule the Pāṇḍudeśam. He was a Bhagavat-bhakta, but a strī-lola. In his kāmāndhatvam, even noticing that Dūrvāsa maharṣhi came, he did not do yathāvidhi namaskāras to him. The maharṣhi gave a śāpam to become a rākṣhasa. Sahasrākṣha later fell on the maharṣhi's feet and asked for śāpāntaram. The maharṣhi said "you will get Kaivalyam because of Śrī Kṛṣhṇa's pāda-sparśa."
