We’re at an important juncture wherein a fierce battle is going on between Snake Kaaliya and Bhagawan Bala-Krishna. We’ve seen yesterday how Bhagawan Bala-Krishna decided to take on Snake Kaaliya single handedly, even though He knew that Snake Kaaliya was not an easy enemy to tackle. Snake Kaaliya was extremely poisonous that he was literally killing anybody and everybody including animals and birds who came in contact with the water that was poisoned by him. Snake Kaaliya, unlike other Raakshasas who came and attacked, was sitting in one place and unleashing his fury on everyone. After a few days of such recklessness, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna decided that He has had enough with this Snake Kaaliya. He voluntarily takes up the job of “cleaning him up” from Gokula and on the pretext of retrieving the ball with which the kids were playing, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna jumps into the river bed and goes searching for this treacherous enemy. As Bhagawan Bala-Krishna advances further closer to Snake Kaaliya, the poisonous plumes increase and Snake Kaaliya realizes that there’s an enemy who has come to take him on.
As Bhagawan Bala-Krishna advances further, no matter how much poisonous plumes He had to encounter, Snake Kaaliya realizes that this little boy isn’t an ordinary enemy who can be killed just by poisoning Him. He thus unleashes his long tail towards Bhagawan Bala-Krishna, rolls Him into it and tries to squeeze Him out. Thus, trying to free Himself from the clutches of Snake Kaaliya’s fierce tail, a huge fight breaks out between the two. On one hand, Snake Kaaliya is trying to show all his might and on the other hand, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna is showing why He’s the all-pervading “Paramatma” – The fight continues on and on for a long time. Meanwhile, people in Gokula, including Mother Yashoda and Nandagopa are getting to know what had happened to their son. The entire village gathers near the bank of River Yamuna, eagerly waiting for their beloved Bhagawan Bala-Krishna to come out. However, as time progressed, the fear of Bhagawan Bala-Krishna getting drowned into the river water engulfed each and everyone in Gokula. Mother Yashoda is getting shattered every moment that is passing by as she’s desperately crying for help. However, due to the fear of Snake Kaaliya, none of them is coming forward to jump into the river and help Bhagawan Bala-Krishna.
As this fear was gripping, people started collapsing and falling on the ground unconscious. Mother Yashoda too was at the verge of collapsing on the ground due to the fear and fatigue. Meanwhile, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna too realized that time is running out, and people are waiting for Him outside. He has had enough. He suddenly grows in size, thus tearing Snake Kaaliya’s tail apart! Bhagawan Bala-Krishna frees Himself very easily thus, from the clutches of the snake and directly now attacks the head portion of Snake Kaaliya. As Snake Kaaliya was thus being captured left, right and center by Bhagawan Bala-Krishna, he is running out of options now to save himself. One more moment, and Bhagawan Bala-Krishna is going to ensure that Snake Kaaliya is history.
Realizing thus, Snake Kaaliya immediately seeks unconditional forgiveness to Bhagawan Bala-Krishna. He thus realizes as to who has come in front of him. Snake Kaaliya is also realizing who he himself was. He was none other than one of the forms of Bhagawan Aadisesha, who is the serpent-bed of Bhagawan Vishnu at Vaikunta! Thus, Snake Kaaliya realizes his folly of taking on his Bhagawan Vishnu, and eventually surrenders to His lotus feet unconditionally. As this happens, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna doesn’t kill Snake Kaaliya and leaves him with a warning not to come closer to the river banks again and disturb people around.
Saying thus, Bhagawan Bala-Krishna and Snake Kaaliya together rise up the waters as Bhagawan Bala-Krishna performs the famous Kaaliya-Nardhana (Divine dance over Snake Kaaliya’s head). Upon seeing Bhagawan Bala-Krishna alive, the entire Gokula village came back to life again. Mother Yashoda was relieved to the core. She was extremely happy to see her son alive and safe without any injury. So for today, let us experience this moment wherein Bhagawan Krishna has won over Snake Kaaliya and we shall wait till the next episode to witness the beautiful “Kaaliya-Nardhana” that Bhagawan Bala-Krishna is going to perform! Stay tuned for the absorbing episode! 🙂
