That beautiful Gopalan has tucked his flute inside his waist band and has additional decoration in the form of a chain of Kunrimani beads tied across vimsarhi own dark hair pulled up in the form of a bun. These are usually sung before Thadhiaradhanams Group partaking of food offered to God and on the occasion of marriages and on Krishna Jayanthi day in Thiruvahindrapuram [1]. He lifted his foot to run. He was not an ordinary baby. I see that vmsathi young Gopala next to me always.

He is wearing the peacock feathers peelis in his dark tresses. He has the eternal and youthful beauty that qualifies Him to play with Her.

I should be able to see Him, With flute kept close to his lips, With blue peacock feather adorning his hair, And with his pranks shining like the blue gem, During the last procession of my life. He strikes a pose with his tender right hand holding the shepherd’s bent stick; his left hand rests on the shoulder of the beautiful Nappinnai; that touch of Gopalan sends shivers of joy over Nappinnai’s body.

Swami Desikan paints a word picture of the incomparable beauty of Sri Gopalan. gopa,a

Sri Desika Stotras with Meaning: Gopala Vimsati

Our Lord, who is the protector of His universe adopted this posture as if he was a mere mortal. Krishna, the bhAgyam of Yasodha, heard these rhythmical sounds coming from her efforts and began a special dance to amuse her and to receive gobs of butter as a reward. He blesses Vimathi with His auspicious glances. I salute Sri Vedanta Desikan prior to attempting to provide an English translation to these bhakti-laden verses dedicated to Sri Rukmini Satyabhama sameta Raja Venugopalan.


I remember the lad smiling with lips, Resembling the rosy leaf buds, Who had turned his neck out of fear, And who dragged the big mortar, In between the two trees and, Freed both of them of their, Tree form forever.

Sunday, February 25, Gopala Vimsati. Venugopalan plays on his flute and creates delightful music and casts his most merciful glances on the Gopis.

I salute this embodiment of mercy known as Venugopalan. He planted one of his feet firmly and he moved the other foot around in different directions, the gold necklaces, jewelery and the ankle bells on His holy feet producing a most delightful musical sound, which matched the laya patterns emanating from his mother’s efforts at churning milk.

Raghunathan To view the total list of Blogs I have created, click here. I meditate on that Brahmam, Who is understood by the Gopis, Just by a slight look on him by them, Who is the luck of Mathura, Who is the greatest luck to, The unmatchable souls every where, Who drank milk out of the wife of Vasudeva, And who always looks like a handsome lad.

He roams around with great desire for union with Gopis. We are powerless to describe His full beauty.

Victory to him who keeps his flute, Tucked in his golden waist band, Who keeps his right hand on a stick, Used to mind the herds of cow, Who keeps his left hand on the shoulder, Of goppala lady [4] shivering with joy, Who is of the black colour of the cloud, And who ties his tresses with a chain of Gunja seeds. May that vision of this sweet, butter dance of Lord Gopala appear before my eyes!

Verse 7 parivattita kandharam bhayena smita phulladhara pallavam. Verse 1 vande bRndAvanacaram vallavI janavallabham jayantisambhavam dhAma vaijayantI vibhUshaNam I salute that divine effulgence named Gopala, gkpala was born on this Sri Jayanthi day and roamed in the forests of Brindavanam wearing the unfading garland, known as Vaijayanti, made of wild flowers of the forest.


The shock of the collision with the mortar broke the twin trees and the the sons of Kubera, who stood as the trees in the garden of the Lord, got released from their curse and regained their original bodies. May the thought of the simplicity that he adapted for this occasion protect all of us in our daily lives!

She wanted to teach him a lesson for stealing butter. Who etched this embodiment of beauty wearing the charming peacock feathers in His hair? May that Gopala engaged in water sports with the Gopis as their lover protect us, since he is the medicine for his devotees suffering from the afflictions of Samsaara.

With these and vimsatui AbharaNAs made of forest products, Gopala enchants the hearts of the adoring Gopis. I see him always and all times, With a chest carrying his Lady, And also see him as prettiness, That can never ever be described, And which is the acme of desire of the gopis.

Gopala Vimsathi

Gopalan routinely raided the kitchen and stole this butter. I salute and offer my tribute to this supreme being known as Gopalan. Gopalan desirous of performing water sports with the Gopis tucked tightly his garments. The young girls of Gokulam look at this lovely child of Yasodha with great affection. She saw Gopalan stealing butter again and ran towards him, rope in her hand, to tie him up as punishment.

I offer my worship to that blessed child, who freed the sons of Kubera from their existence as twin trees.
