chitra sakhi

chitra radhaji ki sarvashreshth ashtasakhiyon men se ek hain. ye radharani ki ati man bhavnti sakhi hain. inaka barasane men chikasauli namak ganv men nivas mana jata hai.

puranon men dakshin disha men padma gopi ki sthiti kahi gee hai jabaki vrindavan ki parampara men is disha men chitra sakhi ko sthan diya gaya hai. taittiriy brahman men kaha gaya hai ki akash men jaise nakshatr hain, vaise hi is prithivi par chitr-vichitr roop hain. koee achchha roop hai, koee kharab roop hai. avashyakata is bat ki hai, in chitr roopon ko vikasit karake inhen punah akash ke nakshatron ka roop diya jae. dakshin disha yam ki, pitaron ki aur dakshata prapt karane ki disha hai.[1]

puranon men sarvatrik roop se ek katha men padma ko raja anarany ki kanya kaha gaya hai. atma arany hai, jngal hai jisase oopar ki sthiti anh-arany ki, paramatma ki hai.[2] is anarany ko padm men sthit angushth purush ki bahut chah hai, lekin vah keval kanya roop men padma ko, prakriti ko hi prapt kar pata hai. phir is padma ko patni roop men pane vala paippalad banata hai. paippalad rishi vah hai jisaka palan pippalon ke bhakshan se, is prithivi ke bhogon ke sevan dvara hua hai. is padma ko dharm bhi patni roop men prapt karana chahata hai, lekin use padma ke shap se char yugon men char pad vala banana pada. padma shabd ki nirukti isi adhar par ki ja sakati hai ki jagat men praniyon ko pad pradan kare, unamen chalane ki shakti de, jaise sooryoday par sare prani chalane lagate hain. lakshminarayan snhita men ullekh ata hai ki padma gopi krishn ke padayugal men alaktak lagati hai. doosari or padma gopi dvara krishn ko bhalatilak bindi lagane ka bhi ullekh hai. isaki vyakhya kaise ki ja sakati hai, yah bhavishy men apekshit hai.

chitra ka chitran puranon men yam-patni ke roop men kiya gaya hai. ek veshya ke roop men bhi chitra ka chitran kiya gaya hai jo apane kinhin satkaryon ke karan agale janm men divya devi banati hai. puranon men pingala ko bhi veshya kaha jata hai jo sada is asha men jiti hai ki use usaka priyatam milega. jab vah asha ka tyag kar deti hai, tabhi use chain milata hai. shrisookt men dakshin disha men jis richa ka viniyog hai, vah hai-


"kan sosmitan hiranyaprakaramardran jvalantin triptan tarpayantimh. padme sthitan padmavarnan tamihopahvaye shriyamh॥"


arthath main us shri ka ahvan karata hoon jo kamanaon ki poorti karati hai, sosmita arthath muskarane vali hai, jisake charon or hirany ka ghera hai, jo ardra hai, karuna se ardr hai, jvalanti hai, papon ko jala dalati hai, tript hai, pingala veshya ki tarah atript nahin hai, tript karane vali hai, ityadi.

chitra sakhi duhunni man bhavai. jal sugndh lai ani pivavai॥
jahan lagi ras pive ke ahi. meli sugndh banavai tahi॥
jehi chhin jaisi ruchi pahichanai. tab hi ani karavat panai॥
kunkum kausau baran tan, kanak basan paridhan.
roop chaturee kaha kahaun, nahin kooo saman॥
sakhi rasalika tilakani, aru sugndhika nam.
saur sain aru nagari, ramilaka abhiram॥
nagabennika nagari, pari sabai sukh rng.
hit saun ye seva karain, shri chitra ke sng॥[3]
