TRICHAMBARAM KRISHNA TEMPLE

She prayed ardently to the Lord and expressed her desire to see the dance.  That night, as the dances commenced, as though in a trance, the dancers made their way to the Pookathillam and danced to the joy of theold woman.  This practice continued although the Brahmin houses are no longer there today.  All the same people see divinity in this dance and they liken it to the dance Krishna danced on the serpent Kaliya or the Rasalila performed in Brindavan.   As we leave Trichambaram let-us recall the graphic description of Sri Krishna in Cherusseri Nambudiri's famous poem, Krishna Gatha, which tells the story of the Lord from birth to ascension:

Dark as a dark rain-cloud,

his hair beautifully knotted,

a flute in his hand

an anklet on his foot,

and a thread across his chest,

his clothes the color of yellow turmeric,

Krishna, the nonpareil, sheds lights about him. *
