pauranik prasng

radha tatha shridama ka paraspar ek-doosare ko shap

viraja ko shrikrishn ne shighr hi apane var ke prabhav se moortimati aur vimal vastrabhooshanon se vibhooshit divy nari bana diya aur phir radha ko virah duahkh se vyathit janakar shyamasundar krishn svayn shridama ke sath unake nikunj men aye. nikunj ke dvar par sakha ke sath aye hue pranavallabh ki or dekhakar radha manavati ho unase boli- "hare! vahin chale jao! jahan tumhara naya neh juda hai. jao, usi kunj men raho! mujhase apako kya matalab?" yah bat sunakar bhagavan viraja ke nikunj men chale ge. tab shrikrishn ke mitr shridama ne radha se roshapoorvak kaha- "radhe! shrikrishn sakshath paripoorn bhagavan hain. ve svay asnkhy brahmandon ke adhipati or gaulok ke svami hain. ve tum jaisi karodon shaktiyon ko bana sakate hain. unaki tum ninda karati ho? aisa man n karo." is par radha boli- "murkh! apani mata ki ninda karata hai. too rakshas ho ja aur golok se bahar chala ja." shridama bole- "shubhe! shrikrishn sada tumhare anukool rahate hain. isalie tumhen man ho gaya hai. atah paripoornatam paramatma shrikrishn se bhootal par tumhara sau varshon ke lie viyog ho jayega." is prakar paraspar ek-doosare ko shap dekar radha aur shridama atynt chinta men doob ge.

tab shrikrishn vahan prakat hue. unhonne kaha- "radhe! main apane nigam svaroop vachan ko to tyag sakata hoon, kintu bhakt ki bat anyatha karane men sarvatha asamarth hoon. radhe! tum shok mat karo. meri bat suno. viyog kal men bhi pratimas ek bar tumhen mera darshan hua karega. barah kalp men bhootal ka bhar utarane main tumhare sath prithvi par chaloonga. shridama, tum apane ek ansh se asur ho jao. vaivasvat manvntar men rasamndal men akar jab tum meri avahelana karoge, tab mere hath se tumhara vadh hoga, phir tum apane poorvavat sharir ko prapt kar loge. is prakar shridama ne yaksh lok men sudhan ke ghar janm liya. vah 'shnkhachood' nam se vikhyat ho yaksharaj kuber ka sevak ho gaya.
