BRINDHAAVANA SAARANGAA KRITHI

Dear Rasikaas of Sri Dikshithar Krithis :

One of our dear members brought to my attention 
a portion of CharaNa sAhithyam that I had omitted
inadvertently . I am glad that he pointed this out .

The words omitted were: MUNI SANKATAHARANA GOVINDHA .

It occurs in the CahraNa section : " AkaLanga DarpaNa 
kapOla visEsha MUNI SANKATAHARANA GOVINDHA  
VenkataramaNa Mukhunda sankarshaNa ----" 

" Muni SanakataharaNa Govindha " alludes to the story
in Srimadh Bhaagavahtam , where Lord KrishNA brought 
back alive the dead son of his guru ( Sandheepa Muni )
from the kingdom of DharmarAjA ( Yama dEvan ) and
destroyed the sorrow of the griving father . KruishNA
and KusElA had VedAdhyanam with Sandheepa Muni and 
KrishNA performed the miraculous deed and brought 
back the AchAryA'son and presented him as GurudakshiNA .

LOrd Govindhan removed the sankatams ( SankataharaNam ) 
of the Muni (Sage Saandheepi ) and Dheekshithar saluted
Sri RanganAtha as SankataharaNa Govindhan .
