Venu Geet

The enchanting Venu Geet, described in the Shrimad Bhagwat Mahapuran, resonates through the 21st chapter of the 10th Canto, presenting the lyrics (वेणु गीत लिरिक्स) of Shri Krishna’s divine flute music that captivates the Gopis of distant Vrindavan. As Shri Krishna, along with Lord Balram, herds the cows across the lush pastures of Giriraj Govardhan, the melodious tunes of his flute, the Venu, signify his entry into the forest, leaving the Gopis spellbound and inspired to share his pastimes with one another.

The Gopis express that witnessing Krishna playing the flute (वेणु गीत) is the epitome of visual grace. They ponder over the fortunes of the flute that intimately touches Krishna’s lips, a privilege for which the Gopikas yearn deeply. The Venu Geet’s vibrations compel peacocks to dance, and even the celestial beings, upon hearing the nectar-like music, are moved by desires, their ornaments disheveled by the profound impact of the melody.

As soon as Lord Krishna, Lord Balram and his cowherds entered the forest to graze the cows, Krishna started playing his flute. When the gopis heard this enchanting Venu’s Sound, they understood that Krishna was entering the forest. Then they narrated various pastimes of Krishna to each other.

The Gopis said, It is the supreme accomplishment of the eyes to see Krishna playing the flute while taking the cows to pasture. What virtuous deeds has this Vanshi done so that she can freely drink the nectar from the lips of Shri Krishna? How difficult is it for us Gopikas to get this boon? Hearing Krishna’s Venu, peacocks start dancing and seeing them dancing, all the other creatures are stunned.

The goddesses traveling through the sky in their respective planes become afflicted by Kamadeva and their clothes start sagging. After drinking the nectar of this Venu Geet, the ears of the cows perk up, their calves stand stunned and the milk being drunk from their mothers’ udders remains in their mouths.

The birds listen attentively to the song of Krishna’s flute, close their eyes and take shelter in the branches of the trees. The flowing rivers, distracted by the sweet attraction towards Krishna, stop flowing and start embracing the feet of Krishna with their wave-like hands and the clouds act as umbrellas to protect Krishna’s head from the sun.

Seeing the grass colored with red Kumkum that adorns the lotus feet of the Lord, the Shabar (A Bhil Cast) girls apply it on their breasts and faces in the name of vermilion so that their troubles caused by Kamadeva go away. Govardhan Mountain provides grass and various types of fruits and roots for the worship of Lord Krishna.

All the immovable beings have started showing the characteristics of the moving creatures and have become moving and moving. All these things are very amazing.

Very Beautiful Venu Geet of Bhagwat Mahapurana Start from Here:

बह्रापीडं नटवरवपुः कर्णयोः कर्णिकारं
बिभ्राद्वासः कनककपिशं वैजयंतीं च मंगलम्।
वृन्दारण्यं स्वपद्रमणं प्रविषद्गीतकीर्तिः ॥

Explanation: Wearing peacock feather ornaments on his head, blue Karnikar flowers in his ears, golden yellow clothes and Vaijayanti garland, Lord Krishna, displaying the divine form of the best dancer, entered the forest of Vrindavan and made it beautiful with his footprints. He filled the holes of his lineage with the nectar of his beautiful lips and the cowherd boys sang his praises.

अक्षण्वतां फलमिदं न परं विदामः
सख्यः पशूननुविवेशयतोर्वयस्यैः |
वक्त्रं व्रजेशसुतयोरनवेणुजुष्टं
यैर्वा निपीतमनुरक्तकटाक्षमोक्षम् ॥

Explanation: The Gopis said: Friends, the eyes that see the beautiful faces of both the sons of Nand Maharaj are certainly fortunate. As soon as both of them enter the forest surrounded by their friends and with the cows in front of them, they hold their descendants in their mouths and look at the people of Vrindavan with loving eyes. For those who have eyes, there is nothing greater than this to see in our understanding.

र्दामोदराधरसुधामपि गोपिकानाम् ।
भुङ्गे स्वयं यदवशिष्टरसं ह्रदिन्यो
हृष्यत्त्वचोऽश्रु मुमुचुस्तरवो यथार्यः ॥

Explanation: O Gopis, what auspicious deeds would this dynasty have performed in order to freely drink the nectar of Krishna’s lips and to leave only a taste of it for the sake of us Gopis for whom it is actually nectar. Vanshi’s ancestors and bamboo trees must have shed tears of joy. The mother river on the banks of which this tree would have grown must have felt joy; That is why these blooming lotus flowers have stood up like the hairs on his body.

वृन्दावनं सखि भुवो वितनोति कीर्ति

धन्याः स्म मूढगतयोऽपि हरिण्य एता
या नन्दनन्दनमुपात्तविचित्रवेशम् ।

भ्रश्यत्प्रसूनकबरा मुमुहुर्विनीव्यः ॥

गावश्च कृष्णमुखनिर्गतवेणुगीत –
पीयूषमुत्तभितकर्णपुटैः पिबन्त्यः ।

गोविन्दमात्मनि दृशाश्रुकलाः स्पृशन्त्यः ॥

ष्णेक्षितं तदुदितं कलवेणुगीतम् ।

शृण्वन्ति मीलितदृशो विगतान्यवाचः ॥

मावर्तलक्षितमनोभवभग्नवेगाः ।
गृह्णन्ति पादयुगलं कमलोपहारा: ॥

दृष्ट्वातपे व्रजपशून्सह रामगोपैः
सञ्चारयन्तमनु वेणुमुदीरयन्तम् ।
प्रेमप्रवृद्ध उदितः कुसुमावलीभिः
सख्युर्व्यधात्स्ववपुषाम्बुद आतपत्रम् ॥

लिम्पन्त्य आननकुचेषु जहुस्तदाधिम् ॥

हन्तायमद्रिरबला हरिदासवर्यो

पानीयसूयवसकन्दरकन्दमूलैः ॥

गा गोपकैरनुवनं नयतोरुदार-

निर्योगपाशकृतलक्षणयोर्विचित्रम् ॥
