सूत उवाच Sri Sutacharya says:
किं नु बालेषु शूरेण कलिना धीरभीरुणा ।
अप्रमत्तः प्रमत्तेषु यो वृको नृषु वर्तते ॥
या याः कथा भगवतः कथनीयोरुकर्मणः ।
गुणकर्माश्रयाः पुम्भिः संसेव्यास्ता बुभूषुभिः ॥
The Kali is like a clever wolf. He survives in ignorance of being smart. Although the wolf attacks the children and the weak, they are afraid of the strong and powerful. Similarly, the Kali Purusha is careful when it only takes control of those who are stupid and careless.
Therefore, those who brave bravery, struggle for moral value and dignity, seek promise of happiness and prosperity should fight against Kali. Srimad Bhagavata provides refuge for them. The story in which Parikshid Raja manages the evil Kali in Srimad Bhagavata, which I will tell is worth singing, is surprisingly useful to them. This is drenched by the auspicious properties of Lord Sri Krishna, his size and his sporty charm to satiety.
Let’s hear that, says Sri Sutacharya.
यदा परीक्षित्कुरुजाङ्गलेऽशृणोत्कलिं प्रविष्टं निजचक्रवर्तिते ।
निशम्य वार्तामनतिप्रियां ततः शरासनं संयुगशौण्डिराददे ॥ १०॥
Sri Shaunaka! King Parikshit ruled the whole earth from his capital, Hastinapura. During the time of his emperor, he was told that Kali had risen to earth from the underworld. He often received reports of his misdeeds. While he was sorry, he reconciled himself with an opportunity to fight and conquer Kali. He took his arms and decided to fight, Kali.
स्वलङ्कृतं श्यामतुरङ्गयोजितं रथं मृगेन्द्रध्वजमाश्रितः पुरात् ।
वृतो रथाश्वद्विपपत्तियुक्तया स्वसेनया दिग्विजयाय निर्गतः ॥ ११॥
He got into the car, which was well decorated and carried a flag with the symbol of the lion. The cart was pulled by horses that were black, beautiful, and agile. He decided to go to war with Kali, accompanied by the army, which had divisions of war elephants, chariots, cavalry and infantry against Kali.
भद्राश्वं केतुमालं च भारतं चोत्तरान् कुरून् ।
किम्पुरुषादीनि वर्षाणि विजित्य जगृहे बलिम् ॥ १२॥
King Parikshid took Digvijay or claimed to be victorious in all directions. He crossed different regions, including Bhadraashwa, Ketumala, Bharata, Uttara Kuru and Kimpurushavarsha. There he collected taxes from the kings.
तत्र तत्रोपशृण्वानः स्वपूर्वेषां महात्मनाम् ।
प्रगीयमाणं च यशः कृष्णमाहात्म्यसूचकम् ॥ १३॥
During his brief stay in each kingdom, King Parikshid was informed of the glory of his ancestors. Just as the story of the glory of Lord Sri Krishna was in the glory of his ancestors, his thoughts were based on the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krishna.
आत्मानं च परित्रातमश्वत्थाम्नोऽस्त्रतेजसः ।
स्नेहं च वृष्णिपार्थानां तेषां भक्तिं च केशवे ॥ १४॥
He also heard how he remained true to his name Parikshid, that is, protected by Lord. He was protected from the splendor of Brahmashirshastra during his stay in the womb of Lord Sri Krishna.
These stories, told by the people he met, reminded him of the tremendous dedication of his ancestors in the lotus feet of Lord Sri Krishna and the intimacy between Pandavas and the Yadhu clan.
तेभ्यः परमसन्तुष्टः प्रीत्युज्जृम्भितलोचनः ।
महाधनानि वासांसि ददौ हारान् महामनाः ॥ १५॥
King Parikshid was delighted to hear the stories of his grandparents and Lord Sri Krishna. His eyes would open wide like a fully bloomed lotus flower to listen to with the greatest attention. In addition, his lotus of heart would bloom and the nectar of intimacy flow to the narrators. As a token of this love, the extremely generous and kind-hearted Parikshid gave them exclusive gifts, including the precious jewelry he wore.
स्निग्धेषु पाण्डुषु जगत्प्रणतिं च विष्णोः भक्तिं करोति नृपतिश्चरणारविन्दे ॥ १६॥
Lord Bhaktavatsala, to whom the devotee is dearer than he. Sri Krishna had showered Pandavas with his noblest blessing. He became a charioteer for Arjuna, a member of the government assembly, a dear friend, a leader, a messenger, and he would do whatever work Pandavas wanted. Indeed, when Pandavas went on excursions, Sri Krishna held a sword and guarded the camp all night and had made the Pandavas emperors. Such stories were told to Parikshid Raja when he was traveling from one kingdom to another. When King Parikshit heard such stories, his relocation to the Lord’s lotus feet only increased.
तस्यैवं वर्तमानस्य पूर्वेषां वृत्तिमन्वहम् ।
नातिदूरे किलाश्चर्यं यदासीत्तन्निबोध मे ॥ १७॥
Follow the traditions of his grandparents, determine his Emperrorship, hear the glory of his grandparents, the protection he received from the Lord during his birth, and the immeasurable compassion shown by the Lord he traveled. One day a shocking incident occurred near the Parikshid camp. I will tell all of you, said Sri Sutacharya
धर्मः पदैकेन चरन् विच्छायामुपलभ्य गाम् ।
पृच्छति स्माश्रुवदनां विवत्सामिव मातरम् ॥ १८॥
Shaunaka Rishi! God Dharma had taken the form of an ox and broken its three legs. He met the village deity, who had taken the form of a cow. When the ox saw the cow cry as if it had lost its calf, it asked:
From a metaphysical point of view, Kali attacks the Dharma and the holy place that supports the Dharma. This was the message that the village deity and God Dharma wanted to convey to us all through King Parikshid. God Dharma stands on four legs, namely. Tapas or austerity measures give disciplined spiritual practices, saucha or cleanliness, daya or compassion and satya or truthfulness. This had severely broken asceticism, cleanliness, and compassion from Kali. The only truth was survival. The injured three legs had also dragged the fourth leg to convey that truthfulness survived but was very fragile.
God Dharma says:
कच्चिद्भद्रेऽनामयमात्मनस्ते विच्छायासि म्लायतेषन्मुखेन ।
आलक्षये भवतीमन्तराधिं दूरे बन्धुं शोचसि कञ्चनाम्ब ॥ १ ९॥
The auspicious one! Your face has gone dark You have a heavy heart Something is bothering you. Has one of your relatives or friends traveled to distant countries? Are you worried about him
पादैर्न्यूनं शोचसि मैकपादमात्मानं वा वृषलैर्भोक्ष्यमाणम् ।
आहो सुरादीन् हृतयज्ञभागान् प्रजा उत स्विन्मघवत्यवर्षति ॥ २०॥
Or I hope you don’t worry that I’m looking at my handicap! Do you think if I broke three legs how can I manage with just one leg? Or are you worried that the wicked rule over me, the righteous? Or are you worried about the gods because they are unable to maintain the substance they offer in the fire offering? Or are you worried about the ordinary men who find it difficult to grow their crops due to premature rains?
अरक्ष्यमाणाः स्त्रिय उर्वि बालान् शोचस्यथो पुरुषादैरिवार्तान् ।
वाचं देवीं ब्रह्मकुले कुकर्मण्यब्रह्मण्ये राजकुले कुलाग्र्यान् ॥ २१॥
Or are you concerned about women who are vulnerable to the strong and the bad? Or are you worried that the weak children will be exploited by the powerful? Or are you worried that the goddess of knowledge is stuck with the evil Brahmins? Or are you afraid that the Brahmins will serve the kings who have lost their faith in religion? Though religion makes people fall into hell!
किं क्षत्रबन्धून् कलिनोपसृष्टान् राष्ट्राणि वा तैरवरोपितानि ।
इतस्ततो वाशनपानवासः स्नानव्यवायोन्मुखजीवलोकम् ॥२२॥
Devi! Do you fear that Kali has a permanent place in all Kshatriyas? Nowadays the kings are only there for the namesake. Instead of ensuring the well-being of their subjects, they are busy filling their personal coffers by exploiting them. Is that what worries you?
Or there is a decline in moral values, people eat food that is sold, drink alcohol, wear an inappropriate dress or take a bath at their own request. They do not follow the paths prescribed in shastras or indoctrinations. Are you worried about her
यद्वाम्ब ते भूरिभरावतारकृतावतारस्य हरेर्धरित्रि ।
अन्तर्हितस्य स्मरती विसृष्टा कर्माणि निर्वाणविलम्बितानि ॥ २३॥
Or Devi! Have you apparently remembered the glory of Lord Sri Krishna, praised his glory, and remembered the compassion you received? He only appeared on earth to reduce the weight of sin in every village and all over the world. Are you sad that he’s gone now?
इदं ममाचक्ष्व तवाधिमूलं वसुन्धरे येन विकर्शितासि ।
कालेन वा ते बलिनां बलीयसा सुरार्चितं किं हृतमम्ब सौभगम् ॥ २४॥
Goddess! They carry an enormous wealth of metals and minerals, gemstones and stones. You are superior to many gods and goddesses! Why are you lost in sadness? When the Kali Yuga started, the evil Kali had an impact on everything. Are you sad that in his time he takes away all your promise of happiness from Kali Yuga? Please tell me, Devi! I’m waiting for your answer, says God Dharma.
Let us pray to Sri Hari, Vayu and Gurus for their continued blessing to hear the full story of Parikshid Raja who administers the evil Kali in Srimad Bhagavata. and its sporty charm.
