#1 Madalasa Ullapana Gitam

Post by vgovindan » 28 Jul 2018, 19:04

I came across this ullApana gItaM (lullaby song)

The links - https://sanskritdocuments.org/doc_giita ... agItam.pdf
https://rajeshkohli.blogspot.com/2016/0 ... dalsa.html

सा वै मदालसा पुत्रं बालमुत्तनशायिनम् ।
उल्लापनच्छलेनाह रुदमनमविस्वरम् ।। 10 ।।

शुद्धोऽसि रे तात न तेऽस्ति नाम
कृतं हि ते कल्पनयाधुनैव ।
पञ्चात्मकं देहमिदं तवैत-
न्नैवास्य त्वं रोदिषि कस्य हेतोः ।। 11 ।।

न वा भवान्रोदिति वै स्वजन्मा
शब्दोऽयमासाद्य महीशसूनुम् ।
विकल्प्यमाना विविधा गुणास्ते
ऽगुणाश्च भौताः सकलेन्द्रियेषु ।। 12 ।।

भूतानि भूतैः परिदुर्बलानि
वृद्धिं समायान्ति यथेह पुंसः ।
अन्नाम्बुदानादिभिरेव कस्य
न तेऽस्ति वृद्धिर्न च तेऽस्ति हानिः ।। 13 ।।

त्वं कञ्चुके शीर्यमाणे निजेऽस्मिं-
स्तस्मिंश्च देहे मूढतां मा व्रजेथाः ।
शुभाशुभैः कर्माभिर्देहमेत-
न्मदादिमूढैः कञ्चुकस्तेपिनद्धः ।। 14 ।।

तातेति किञ्चित्तनयेति किञ्चि-
दम्बेति किञ्चिद्दयितेति किञ्चित् ।
ममेति किञ्चिन्न ममेति किञ्चित्
त्वं भूतसङ्घं बहु मानयेथाः ।। 15 ।।

दुःखानि दुःखोपशमाय भोगान्
सुखाय जानाति विमूढचेताः ।
तान्येव दुःखानि पुनः सुखानि
जानात्यविद्वान् सुविमूढचेताः ।। 16 ।।

हासोऽस्थिसन्दर्शनमक्षियुग्म-
मत्युज्ज्वलं तर्जनमङ्गनायाः ।
कुचादि पीनं पिशितं घनं तत्
स्थानं रतेः किं नरकं न योषित् ।। 17 ।।

यानं क्षितौ यानगतञ्च देहं
देहेऽपि चान्यः पुरुषो निविष्टः ।
ममत्वबुद्धिर्न तथा यथा स्वे
देहेऽतिमात्रं बत मूढतैषा ।। 18 ।।

त्यज धर्ममधर्मञ्च उभे सत्यानृते त्यज ।
उभे सत्यानृते त्यक्त्वा येन त्यजसि तत्त्यज ।।

इति श्रीमार्कण्डेयपुराणान्तर्गतं
मदालसोपाख्याने बालोल्लापनगीतं समाप्ता ।।


शुद्धोऽसि बुद्धोऽसि निरञ्जनोऽसि
संसार माया परिवर्जितोऽसि
संसार स्वप्नं त्यज मोहनिद्रां
मदालसोल्लपमुवाच पुत्रम् ।

The last stanza is a variation (addition) found in some websites and the same is a popular song version also.

Fantastic, Rajani.
Just think that for a lullaby, this is way too philosophical!

Shankar,
Madalasa is stated to be a sage when she bore the child (Rshis are not sannyasis).
How else treatises like 'ashThAvakra saMhita' would have come into being? Such statements as given therein (saMhita), if made by anyone now, it would have been considered as blasphemy.

It is rather a pity that Siddhartha (later gautama buddha) was denied the opportunity of getting a guru like Vasishtha for Rama. If he had got one, probably, he (Siddhartha) would have been another (or even better) Adi Sankara propounding vEdanta.

And Siddhartha would have been another Janaka - a RajaRshi - talking to ashThAvakra like sages. Mithila of Janaka is not far away from the land where Siddhartha was born.

Such a holy land (and such a downfall now)!
