shri jagannath puri se das kos door pipalichati gram men raghu kevat ka ghar tha. ghar men sh‍tri aur boodhi mata thi. sabere jal lekar raghu machhaliyan pakadane jata aur pakadi huee machhaliyon ko bechakar parivar ka palan karata. poorv janh‍m ke punh‍y snsh‍karon ke prabhav se raghu ke hriday men bhagavan ki bhakti thi. vah ath‍yanh‍t dayalu tha. machhaliyan jab usake jal men akar tadapane lagatin, tab usaka chitt vh‍yakul ho jata. use apane kary par gh‍lani hoti; parntu jivan-nirvah ka doosara koee sadhan n hone se vah apane vh‍yavasay ko chhod nahin pata tha.

raghu ne ek achh‍chhe guru se diksha le li thi. gale men tulasi ki kanh‍thi bandh li thi. sabere sh‍nan karake bhagavannam ka jap karata tha. bhagavat sunana aur sath‍sng men jana usaka dainik kary ho gaya tha. in sab se usaka anh‍t: karan dhire-dhire shuddh ho gaya. jivamatr men bhagavan virajaman hain, yah bat usaki samajh men ane lagi. jiv-hinsa se use ab tivr virakti ho gayi. raghu ke liye machhali pakadana bahut hi kh‍leshadayak ho gaya. usane is kam ko chhod diya. kuchh din to ghar ke snchit ann se kam chala; par snchay tha hi kitana. upavas hone laga. ghar men trahi-trahi mach gayi. pet ki jh‍vala tatha mata aur sh‍tri ke tirash‍kar se vh‍yakul hokar raghu ko phir jal uthana pada. vah sh‍vayn to bhookh se pran de sakata tha, par vaddha mata aur path‍ni ka kashh‍t usase saha nahin jata tha. pachhatata, bhagavan se prarthana karata.

machhali ke sh‍var

ek din vah talab par gaya. jal dalane par ek badi-si lal machhali usamen ayi aur jal se nikalane par tadapane lagi. raghu ka hriday chhatapata utha. use sh‍maran aya ki sabhi jivon men bhagavan hain. us tadapati machhali men sh‍pashh‍t use bhagavan pratit hone lage. isi samay use mata aur path‍ni ki bhookhi akriti ka sh‍maran hua. du:khi, vh‍yakul raghu ne machhali ko jal se nikalakar pakada aur kahane laga- "math‍sh‍yaroopadhari hari ! mere du:kh ki bat suno. tumh‍hin ne mujhe dhivar banaya hai. jivon ko marakar pet bharane ke siva aur koee doosara upay main jivan-nirvah ka nahin janata. isase tum ko marane ke liye main vivash hoon. tum hari ho ya aur koee, aj mere hath se bachakar nahin ja sakate."

raghu ne donon hathon se jor se machhali ka mukh pakada aur use phadane laga. sahasa machhali ke bhitar se sh‍pashh‍t shabh‍d aya- "raksha kar, narayan ! raksha kar." raghu chakit ho gaya. usaka hriday ananh‍d se bhar gaya. machhali ko lekar vah van ki or bhaga. vahan parvat se bahut-se jharane girate the. un jharanon ne anek jalakunh‍d bana diye the. raghu ne ek kunh‍d men machhali dal di.

raghu bhool gaya ki vah kee din se bhookha hai. bhool gaya ki ghar men mata tatha sh‍tri usaki pratiksha karati hongi. vah to kunh‍d ke pas baith gaya. usake netron se do jharane girane lage. vah bhare kanh‍th se kahane laga- "machhali ke bhitar se mujhe tumane ‘narayan’ nam sunaya? ab tum darshan kh‍yon nahin dete? tumh‍hara sh‍var itana madhur hai to tumh‍hari chhavi kitani sunh‍dar hogi! main tumh‍hara darshan paye bina ab yahan se uthoonga nahin."

brahman vesh men bhagavan

raghu ko vahan baithe-baithe tin din ho gaye. vah ‘narayan, narayan’ rat lagaye tha. narayan men tanh‍may tha. ek boond jal tak usake mukh men nahin gaya. din aur rat ka use pata hi nahin tha. bhakti ki sada khoj-khabar rakhane vale bhagavan ek vriddh brahman ke vesh men vahan aye aur poochhane lage- "are tapash‍vi ! too kaun hai? too is nirjan van men kh‍yon aya? kab se baitha hai yahan? tera nam kh‍ya hai?"

raghu ka dhh‍yan toota. usane brahman ko pranam karake kaha- "maharaj ! main koee bhi hooon, apako mujhase kh‍ya prayojan hai. baten karane se mere kam men vighh‍n padata hai. ap padharen."

brahman ne tanik hnsakar kaha- "main to chala jaoonga; par too soch to sahi ki machhali bhi kahin manushh‍y ki boli bol sakati hai. tujhe bhram ho gaya hai. jab kuchh us machhali men hai hi nahin, tab tujhe kisake darshan honge. too yahan vh‍yarth kh‍yon baitha hai. ghar chala ja."

raghu to brahman ki bat sunakar chaunk pada. usane samajh liya ki machhali ki bat janane vale ye sarvgy mere prabhu hi hain. vah bola- "bhagavan ! sab jivon men paramath‍ma hi hain, yah bat main janata hoon. machhali ke sharir men se ve hi bolane vale hain. main bada papi hoon. jivon ki hath‍ya ki hain mainne. kh‍ya isi se ap meri pariksha le rahe hain? ap hi to narayan hain. ap prakat hokar mujhe darshan kh‍yon nahin dete. mujhe kh‍yon tarasa rahen hain, nath!"

chaturbhuj roop men darshan

bhakt ki premabhari prarthana sunakar kripa sagar prabhu apane divh‍y chaturbhuj roop men prakat ho gaye. raghu to ekatak dekhata rah gaya us lavanh‍y rashi ko. vah ansoo bahata hua prabhu ke charanon me lotane laga. bhagavan ne use bhakti ka ashirvad dekar aur bhi var mangane ko kaha. raghu ne hath jodakar kaha- "prabho ! apake darshan ho gaye aur apane bhajan ka ashirvad de diya, phir ab mangane ko kh‍ya raha. parntu apaki agya hai to main ek chhoti vash‍tu mangata hoon. jati se dhivar hoon. machhali marana mera paitrik sh‍vabhav hai. main yahi varadan mangata hoon ki mera yah sh‍vabhav chhoot jay. pet ke liye bhi main kabhi hinsa n karoon. anh‍t samay men meri jibh apaka nam ratati rahe aur apaka darshan karate hue mere pran nikalen." bhagavan ne raghu ke mash‍tak par hath rakhakar ‘tathash‍tu’ kaha aur anh‍tardhan ho gaye.

raghu vachanasiddh mahath‍ma

bhagavan ka darshan pakar raghu samh‍poorn badal gaya. vah bhagavannam-kirtan karata hua ghar aya. ganv ke logon ne use dhikh‍kara ki mata aur sh‍tri ko niradhar chhodakar vah bhag gaya tha. daya karake ganv ke zamindar ne bechari striyon ke liye ann ka prabanh‍dh kar diya tha. raghu ne ise bhagavan ki daya hi mani. yadi vah ghar par rahata to zamindar ya koee bhi ek chhatank ann dene vala nahin tha. ab vah prat: shauch-sh‍nanadi se nivritt hokar bhagavan ka bhajan karata aur phir kirtan karata hua ganv men ghoomata. bina mange hi log use bulakar anek padarth dete the. is prakar anayas usaka tatha parivar ka palan-poshan hone laga. usaki mata tatha sh‍tri bhi ab bhajan men lag gayin. raghu ab bhajan ke prabhav se poora sadhoo ho gaya. din-rat usaka man bhagavan men laga rahata tha. vah nam kirtan karate-karate besudh ho jata tha.

ab raghu ki sthiti aisi ho gayi ki unake mukh se jo nikal jata, vahi sath‍y ho jata. ve vachanasiddh mahath‍ma mane jane lage. door-door se nana prakar ki kamana vale sh‍tri-purushon ki bhid ane lagi. raghu is prapnch se ghabara gaye. man-pratishh‍tha unh‍hen vish-si lagati thi. ghar chhodakar ve ab nirjan van men rahane lage aur chaubison ghnte keval bhajan men hi bitane lage.

ek din raghu ko laga ki mano nilachal nath shri jaganh‍nath ji unase bhojan mang rahe hain. isase unh‍hen bada ananh‍d hua. bhojan-samagri lekar unh‍honne kutiya ka dvar bnd kar liya. bhakt ke bulate hi bhav ke bhookhe shri jaganh‍nath prakat ho gaye aur raghu ke hath se bhojan karane lage.

bhog-manh‍dap men darpan

udhar usi samay nilachal men shri jaganh‍nath ji ke bhog-manh‍dap men pujari ne nana prakar ke pakavan sajaye. shri jagannath ji ke mandir men bhog-manh‍dap alag hai. bhog-manh‍dap men ek darpan laga hai. us darpan men jaganh‍nath ji ke shri vigrah ka jo pratibimh‍b padata hai, usi ko naivedy chadhaya jata hai. sab samagri a jane par pujari jab bhog lagane laga, tab usane dekha ki darpan men pratibimh‍b to padata hi nahin hai. darpan jahan-ka-tahan tha, bich men koee ad bhi nahin thi; par pratibimh‍b nahin pad raha tha. ghabarakar vah raja ke pas gaya. usane kaha- "maharaj ! naivedy men kuchh dosh hona chahiye. shri jaganh‍nath sh‍vami use sh‍vikar nahin kar rahe hain. ab kh‍ya kiya jay."

shraddhalu raja ne sh‍vayn dekha ki darpan men prabhu ka pratibimh‍b nahin padata. unh‍hen bada du:kh hua. ve kahane lage- "pata nahin, mujhase kh‍ya aparadh ho gaya ki meri samagri se arpit bhog prabhu sh‍vikar nahin karate. mujhase koee aparadh hua ho to prayashchit karane ko main taiyar hoon."

raja ka sh‍vaph‍n

raja prarthana karate hue du:khi hokar bhagavan ke garud dhh‍vaj ke pas jakar bhoomi par hi let gaye. bhagavan ki lila se letate hi unh‍hen tanh‍dra a gayi. unh‍honne sh‍vaph‍n men dekha ki prabhu kah rahe hain- "raja ! tera koee aparadh nahin. too du:khi mat ho. main nilachal men tha hi nahin, tab pratibimh‍b kisaka padata. main to is samay pipalichati gram men apane bhakt raghu kevat ki jhopadi men baitha usake hath se bhojan kar raha hoon. vah jab tak nahin chhodata, main yahan akar tera naivedy kaise sh‍vikar kar sakata hoon. yadi too mujhe yahan bulana chahata hai to mere us bhakt ko usaki mata tatha sh‍tri ke sath yahan le a. yahin unake rahane ki vh‍yavash‍tha kar."

raja ka sh‍vaph‍n toot gaya. ve ekadam uth khade hue. ghode par baithakar shighrata se pipalichati pahunche. poochh-pachhakar raghu kevat ki jhopadi ka pata lagaya. jab kee bar pukarane par bhi dvar n khula, tab dvar bal lagakar sh‍vayn khola unh‍honne. kutiya ka drishh‍y dekhate hi ve moorti ki bhanti ho gaye. romanchit sharir raghu samane bhojan rakhe kisi ko gras de raha hai. raghu dikhata hai, ann dikhata hai, gras dikhata hai; par gras lene vala mukh nahin dikhata. raja chupachap khade rahe. vah agyat mukh to jise kripa karake vah dikhana chahe, vahi badabhagi dekh sakata hai.

sahasa prabhu anh‍tardhan ho gaye. raghu jal se nikali machhali ki bhanti tadapane laga. raja ne ab use uthakar god men baitha liya. raghu ko hosh aya. apane ko raja ki god men dekh ve chakit ho gaye. jalh‍di se uthakar ve raja ko pranam karane lage. unh‍hen rokakar sh‍vayn puri-naresh ne unake charanon men pranam kiya. shri jagannath ki agya sunakar raghu ne nilachal chalana sh‍vikar kar liya. mata tatha path‍ni ke sath ve puri aye. unake nilachal pahunchate hi bhog-manh‍dap ke darpan men shri jagannath ji ka pratibimh‍b dikhayi pada.

  • puri ke raja ne shri jagannath ji ke mandir se dakshin or raghu ke liye ghar ki vh‍yavash‍tha kar di. avashh‍yak samagri bhijava di vahan. raghu apani mata aur stri ke sath bhajan karate hue jivanaparyanh‍t vahin rahe.[1]
