Narayaneeyam Dasakam Gajendra Moksha Gajendra Moksha Gajendra Moksha, or Gajendramoksham, is an important incident found in the Bhagavad Purana and it shows the importance of Bhakti, prayer and true devotion. Indradyumna, Thy great devotee and the king of Paandya land was once engrossed in worshipping Thee on the Malaya mountain.
He was so absorbed that he did not even notice sage Agastya who approached expecting his hospitality. Agastya who was overcome with anger cursed the king that as he was of such haughty nature he would be born as an elephant and departed. Indradyumna got the form of a lordly elephant with the good fortune of retaining a clear memory of Thee. He had been cursed by a sage that he would become a crocodile. And the sage had told him that he would be freed from the curse by Lord Vishnu.
That had now happened. There was a beautiful mountain named Trikuta. The waves of the ocean lapped at the foot of Trikuta. There were thick forests on the mountain. And in the forests there lived a king of elephants named Gajendra. He ruled over all the other elephants in the herd. Gajendra was proud about his status and on a summer day he was arrogantly bathing in the lake with his friends. Suddenly, a crocodile that lived in the pond caught Gajendra by his leg.
Gajendra, in spite of being an elephant could not break free. He then, called out for help. All his friends, the other elephants gathered around him and tried to help, but in vain.
The crocodile was stronger than all the elephants put together. They gave up. Gajendra tried for a long time to escape from the crocodile. He trumpeted until he was hoarse. The crocodile simply would not let go. The elephant and the crocodile struggled for a thousand years. Gajendra lost a lot of blood and he became very weak. He finally realized that only God could help him and called out to Lord Narayana. The elephant started to pray to Lord Vishnu.
He sent the Sudarshana Chakra whirling down. The Chakra killed the crocodile and set Gajendra free. Gajendra offered Lord Narayana a Lotus and thanked him for saving his life. When we are caught in the jaws of death, there is no one who can save us. Friends flee, relatives disappear. Our own body fails us miserably. Like the elephant in the story, the only solution from suffering is to turn to the Lord.
In the moment of that utter surrender, God rushes to our aid, destroys death, and releases our soul from the clutches of death — and that is liberation or Moksha that comes by the grace of the Supreme.
