Chapter 105 Krishna Left Earth and Yadavas Killed Themselves
Thirty-six years after the Kurukshetra conflict, Bhagwan Krishna reigned over Dwaraka. The Yadavas who made up Krishna’s kingdom, the Vrishnis, the Bhopas, and other branches, lived in opulent splendour and unbridled self-indulgence. They no longer had any feeling of self-control or modesty.
A few rishis once visited Dwaraka. With a practical joke, the haughty and disrespectful Yadavas ridiculed these rishis. They turned one of their own young men into a woman and asked the esteemed visitors, “O ye wise men, tell us whether this lady will have a boy or a girl,” before presenting him to them.
This individual will give birth to a mace, not a boy or a girl, and that mace will prove to be Yama to your clan and destroy you all, the rishis shouted in wrath after realising the joke’s irreverence. The rishis said this curse and then left.
The gullible Yadavas were quite upset by this unfortunate conclusion to what they had believed was a funny prank.
They were shocked to learn the next day that Samba, the man who had been disguised as a woman, had labour pains and had given birth to a mace! As a result of the rishis’ curse, they felt as though their demise was drawing closer. After much thinking, they pounded the mace into a fine powder and distributed it in the water, believing they had neutralised the threat.
There was a long period of silence. Seasons went by. When it rained, a thick, crop of rushes appeared close to where they had scattered the terrible mace’s fine dust on the shore.
The Yadavas were intrigued and amused when they witnessed this since they had completely forgotten about the guest rishis’ curse.
The Yadavas went to the same beach for a vacation one day, a long time later, and spent the entire day dancing, drinking, and having fun. The alcohol started to work.
They started out jovial before becoming combative and talking freely, bringing up old grudges and fighting on the basis of trivial differences. Kritavarma and Satyaki, two Yadavas, had fought on opposite sides, the Kauravas and the Pandavas.
“O Kritavarma, would any Kshatriya assault and murder sleeping soldiers? You have thrown our clan into grave and permanent humiliation,” Several inebriated Yadavas cheered the assault, Satyaki stated while mocking Kritavarma. Kritavarma could not endure the insult. He cried out, “Like a butcher, you butchered the great Bhurisravas while sat in yoga after his right hand was severed and you, coward, dare to ridicule me,” and some of the drunk Yadavas joined him in mocking Satyaki for his heinous act.
Soon, all of the Yadavas were involved in the argument on one side or the other, and soon after, they exchanged punches after exchanging words, which quickly turned into a free bloody brawl. Here is the end of the scoundrel who slaughtered sleeping warriors! said Satyaki as he leapt at Kritavarma with his sword drawn and severed his head.
Others instantly rushed Satyaki with their pots, drinking bowls, and whatever else they could get their hands on.
After Satyaki’s rescue by Krishna’s son Pradyumna, there was a frantic melee in which both Satyaki and Pradyumna perished.
Krishna pulled the long rushes that surrounded the shore and scattered them haphazardly around him since he knew the appointed time had come.
As a result, all of the Yadavas followed suit, and there was widespread indiscriminate killing. The rishis’ curse had started to take effect.
When the destined men’s irrational rage caused them to pluck the rushes that had sprouted out of the mace, each one of them was transformed into a mace. They all soon perished in this drunken struggle after using them deadly weapons effectively on one another.
Balarama, who was witnessing all of this, collapsed on the ground out of shame and disgust. As he lay in a yoga trance, he decided to end his life. Balarama faded away into the water in a stream of light that snaked out from his forehead. Thus came to a close Narayana’s Balarama incarnation.
Krishna believed that everyone in his clan will eventually annihilate themselves. He wandered the forest in intense concentration after seeing Balarama’s death and thought about the fulfilment of his avatar. He told himself, “The time has come for me to depart from earth,” and as he slept off while laying on the ground.
A hunter was looking for animals on that forested seashore when he came across Vasudeva sprawled out amid the bushes. The hunter initially mistaken Krishna for a wild animal lazing about on the ground. He cocked his bow, aimed at the animal on the ground, and fired an arrow that pierced his foot in the instep and through his torso. Krishna allowed death to accept him. The mighty Vasudeva left the realm of mankind in this manner. This way Bhagwan Krishna ended his leela of Dwapar Yug.
