Lord Krishna began his upadesa to a nonplussed Arjuna in terms of Supreme jnana. The Lullaby of Geeta Essence, composed in Tamil by the Saintly Tiru-vengada-nathar for the delight of his daughter, contains the very essence of this Jnana Yoga.
It is told in delightfully pithy couplets in the form of a brisk unambiguous dialogue, between Sri Krishna and Arjuna. The English translation preserves the metre of the original Tamil couplets, to facilitate identical recitation. Her neighbour, friend and playmate had also been married about the same time and had just then delivered a baby. The strains of lullaby would waft from the neighbouring house and plunge the young widow into despair at her own childlessness.
Her saintly father once returned home earlier than usual and saw her with tears streaming down her cheeks. He consoled her saying she need not have grieved over a minor matter and gave her an idol of baby-Krishna to put in a swing and sing lullaby to. He composed for her the Geeta Sara, a Jnana Upadesa, as a lullaby of couplets. In addition, it happens to be the only work Bhagavan taught as a guru to a group of young sadhaks in a class room.
It happened in the early days, some time before , when Bhagavan was in Skandashram. The Mathadhipati was all smiles as he welcomed the young and beloved Maharshi and informed Him that he had been in the midst of a lecture to the young sadhaks and that it would be a great honour if Maharshi took up the instruction from thereon.
Bhagavan was left with little choice. He entered the lecture hall and accepted the high seat proffered by the Mathadhipati himself. Finding that the lecture was on the Geeta-Saara Lullaby, Bhagavan went ahead with it.
We can only wonder at the great fortune of those young sadhaks, the splendour of the Guru who refused to consider himself as any special incarnation and the grandeur of his upadesa that day; the upadesa that he nevertheless gave in an earlier incarnation!
