The meaning of Bhishma Stuti from the Shrimad Bhagavat on the festival of Makar Sankranti Makar Sankranti is an important Hindu festival which marks the transition of the sun from Dakshinayan Tropic of Capricorn to Uttarayan Tropic of Cancer , where the sun begins to move towards the northern hemisphere marking the beginning of summer.
This therefore indicates the start of an auspicious phase. In Gujarat, this festival is also known as Uttarayan. On this auspicious festival, it is described in the Shrimad Bhagavat that Shri Bhishmaji, who was lying on a bed of arrows in the battlefield of Kurukshetra, declared his intent to leave the mortal body.
At the time, he devotedly performed a divine stuti prayer of Shri Krishna, who stood in front of him to bless him with his grace. Let us all understand the meaning of this prayer, Shri Bhishma Stuti, as described by Pujya Bhaishri.
Iti matirupakalpita vitrishna bhagavati satvata pungave vibhumni,Svasukhamupagate kvachidvihartum prakritimupeyushi yadbhavapravahah. Shri Bhishmaji continued to describe that this unmarried daughter is his mind. Our mind is not single; it is attached to wealth, name and people.
Shri Bhishmaji claims that his mind is single and he would like to wed it to Shri Krishna. Shri Bhishmaji tells Lord Krishna that your complexion is dark like that of a bay leaf; you wear apitambar which is as bright and yellow as the sun; your beautiful, black and curly hair dances on your face O dear friend of Parth, let my love for you increasingly grow. However, which girl would marry a man who is handsome but not brave? My mind has done darshan of your bravery in the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
Yudhi turagarajovidhumravishvak kachalulitashramavaryalamkritasyeMama nishitasharairvibhidyamana tvachi vilasatkavache astu Krishna atmaYour body was covered with dust spread from the running of horses, your forehead decorated with drops of sweat from the effort of riding the chariot and your armour was pierced with my arrows; my mind is attached to such admirable bravery of yours.
What if one is handsome and courageous but without a good temperament? Your nature is so simple! Sapadi sakhivacho nishamya madhye nijaparayorbalayo ratham niveshyaSthitavati parasainikayurakshna hritvati partha sakhe ratirmamastu. Arjun commanded you in Kurukshetra to take his chariot in the middle of the two armies.
This was not a request, it was a command. O Prabhu, Hari, dear friend of Parth, who took away the age of the Kaurava army merely with your looks, let my love for you grow.
A girl likes a husband who is handsome, brave and has a good nature whereby he does as he is told. My mind-like daughter, in addition, has also seen how wise you are. Vyavahita prithanamukham nirikshya svajanavadhadvimukhasya doshabuddhyaKumatimaharadatmavidyaya yashcharanaratih paramsya tasya me astu.
Let me develop love in the divine feet of such a singer of Gita. What if one has all the above qualities but no love? Such a marriage would fail. You thought of my happiness and thus to keep my oath true, O Damodar, you broke your oath! Svanigamapahaya matpratigna mritamadhikartumahavapluto rathasthah,Dhritarathacharano abhyayachchalatguh haririva hantumibham gatottariyah. Shitavishikhahatovishirnadamshah kshatajaparipluta atatayino me,Prasabhamabhisasara madvadhartham sa bhavatu me bhagavan gatirmukundah.
Shri Krishna was angry and his eyes became red. Angrily, he got out of his chariot, while his outer garment dropped, lifted the wheel of a broken chariot from the ground and ran like a lion would after a deer to kill Shri Bhishmaji and protect Arjun.
Shri Bhishmaji dropped his weapons at this point and laughed as Shri Krishna had broken his oath of not using a weapon in the battle. This prayer is composed of 11 shlokas.
I am tired of the continuous circle of life and death. Let me rest at your divine feet. Let us all sing Bhishm Stuti the beautiful and divine prayer along with Pujya Bhaishri to celebrate the festival of Makar Sankranti. Jump to. Sections of this page. Accessibility Help.
