Shrimate Ramanujaya Namah 🙏
भौमं निहत्य सगणं युधि तेन रुद्धा
ज्ञात्वाथ न: क्षितिजये जितराजकन्या: ।
पादाम्बुजं परिणिनाय य आप्तकाम: ॥ ४० ॥
bhaumaṁ nihatya sa-gaṇaṁ yudhi tena ruddhā
jñātvātha naḥ kṣiti-jaye jita-rāja-kanyāḥ
nirmucya saṁsṛti-vimokṣam anusmarantīḥ
pādāmbujaṁ pariṇināya ya āpta-kāmaḥ
Rohiṇī-devi, speaking for the other queens, said: After killing Bhaumāsura and his followers, the Lord found us in the demon’s prison and could understand that we were the daughters of the kings whom Bhauma had defeated during his conquest of the earth. The Lord set us free, and because we had been constantly meditating upon His lotus feet, the source of liberation from material entanglement, He agreed to marry us, though His every desire is already fulfilled.
न वयं साध्वि साम्राज्यं स्वाराज्यं भौज्यमप्युत ।
वैराज्यं पारमेष्ठ्यं च आनन्त्यं वा हरे: पदम् ॥ ४१ ॥
कामयामह एतस्य श्रीमत्पादरज: श्रिय: ।
कुचकुङ्कुमगन्धाढ्यं मूर्ध्ना वोढुं गदाभृत: ॥ ४२ ॥
na vayaṁ sādhvi sāmrājyaṁ
svārājyaṁ bhaujyam apy uta
vairājyaṁ pārameṣṭhyaṁ ca
ānantyaṁ vā hareḥ padam
mūrdhnā voḍhuṁ gadā-bhṛtaḥ
O saintly lady, we do not desire dominion over the earth, the sovereignty of the King of heaven, unlimited facility for enjoyment, mystic power, the position of Lord Brahmā, immortality or even attainment of the kingdom of God. We simply desire to carry on our heads the glorious dust of Lord Kṛṣṇa’s feet, enriched by the fragrance of kuṅkuma from His consort’s bosom.
व्रजस्त्रियो यद् वाञ्छन्ति पुलिन्द्यस्तृणवीरुध: ।
गावश्चारयतो गोपा: पदस्पर्शं महात्मन: ॥ ४३ ॥
vraja-striyo yad vāñchanti
gāvaś cārayato gopāḥ
We desire the same contact with the Supreme Lord’s feet that the young women of Vraja, the cowherd boys and even the aborigine Pulinda women desire — the touch of the dust He leaves on the plants and grass as He tends His cows.
Please do Clarify my this Doubt Swami.
I heard that Mata Rukmini is Saying these words that She desires dust of Krishna & Shri.
But According to Bhagwatam, Shri is Mata Rukmini herself. Then why is she saying like this??
And here it’s Mentioned that “Mahishis” are saying these words… So if it’s not Rukmini then who is saying these words?? Were junior wives saying these???
Please explain in detail. It’s little bit confusing.
