NAARADA RETELLS THE TALE

 

 

jd:

here's a very basic question:

how

do you read the Tale of karkaTI.Crab?

I think it is a parody:

a friendly satire of similar stories with their mantras.

to call it satire is not to say it is untrue, or a malicious presentation.

it is a story that was sung before an audience

all too familiar with the heroes of the purANic stories,

as well the legends of the local gods.

karkaTI.Crab is a mockery of such local legends.

she has her mantra, just like any deity, in the form of a charm

(with its pacha.pacha.Adi).

as we have seen, she is not too bright,

not a good planner

[she knows the homer.simpson-mantra ढोः Dho:...]

karkaTI may have been some local deity

for the audience of the vAlmIka story-teller,

and he wants to make them laugh.

on a previous page I have posted a photograph of the Crab Goddess,

devised by some gameplayer,

which evidences the same sense of humor as we have here.

here she's a tapasvinI."Asceticess".

but

let nArada.Mangift continue....

 

 

NAARADA.MANGIFT

RETELLS THE TALE

 

VASISHTHA said—

when indra.vAsava had heard

the whole tale of the tacky crab karkaTI,

he asked Narada.Mangift

to further satisfy his curiosity about her

*vlm.p.1. Vasishtha related:— indra, having learned about Karkati’s austere tapas, was curious to know more about her from Narada.

 

INDRA said—

thru her tapas,

Suuchii.Pin is turned.into a Pishaacha.Cannibal ;

thru That state

she becomes Karkatii.Crab

an apish mountaineer,

such are the pleasures she enjoys, Muni

.

*vlm.p.2 indra asked, "I know Suchi acquired her fiendish practice of blood sucking by means of her tapas, but who is this apish Karkati that is so greedy to gain flesh and bones?"

 

NAARADA.MANGIFT said

*AS. O indra, the the jIva part of the needle was delicate and hanging on the iron needle when it turned into a demon (eating meat – pizAca).

*sv. This despicable goblin karkaTI became a living needle embodied in a metal needle.

*vlm. It is Karkatí the malevolent fiend, that became Jíva Súchí or colic pain of the living, and assumed the shape of an iron needle as its support or fulcrum.

*VA. this is living needle acquiring subtle demoniac nature, O indra, by becoming a iron needle.

*AS. O indra, the the jIva part of the needle was delicate and hanging on the iron needle when it turned into a demon (eating meat – pizAca).

In the current verse, this tApasI sUcI is being carried around by the now rarefied iron needle flowing like a wind, like an unfettered fierce horse in all directions.

*VA. excited with taste (of meat) and drunk (by blood), she still is like elephant fettered to a post.

*AS. I generally agree, except the main verb is lost. It says she spent time (kAlam calitam) like a female elephant fettered to a post.

*sv.30 She roamed freely, but when there was trouble she returned to the needle-body, as ignorant people do in times of trouble.

*vlm.30. A man being tired by travelling far and wide, returns at last to take his rest at home; so the big and living Súchí turned to the form of the thin iron Súchí to execute her repose; but like ignorant people, who prefer the grosser pleasure of the body to the nicer delights of the soul; she still panted for her grosser enjoyments, that were now lost to her.

in all the ten directions,

she got mental satisfaction,

*sv.32 Only an existential factor can undergo appropriate experiences; how can a non-existent body experience satisfaction?

*vlm.32. When the container is in existence, it is possible to fill it with its contents and not otherwise; so one having his body, can seek and get every pleasurable object to give it delight.

and then she would remember well

the bellyfulls of former times

and she grew sorrowful within

for such fully gut-pleasing fare

.

*vlm.33. Remembering now the past enjoyments of her former body, she became sorrowful in her mind, that was so highly pleased and satisfied with filling its belly before.

so thinking,

she chose a place to be alone to make her hard tapas

*vlm.34. She was then resolved to betake herself to austere devotion, for the purpose of recovering her former body; and with this object in view, she chose for herself the proper situation for her castigations.

*sv.34 In order to regain her previous body as a gigantic goblin, she began to perform penance again.

That certain vulture, with indications of the disease caused by the needle (sva.Amaya-sUcitvam samAzrita:), being forced by her (nitAntapreta:), made his mind (mana upAdade) to do her bidding (sUcyA kartum). -- Thus she infected the vulture with her desires and he deposited her where she wanted to be.

to her intended spot upon the mountain.

like a cloud by the wind, the Demoness was borne by shUchI.Pin.

*vlm.p.37 Thus the vulture, bearing the unsatisfied Suchi within its body, flew to its intended spot on the mountain. It was driven there like a cloud by the wind and it was in this place that Suchi was to be released from her needle shape.

It is saying that she was like: a streak of fragrance in the wind going towards part of the wind in the nose. This reminds me of the usual depiction of a smell reaching the nose of a cartoon character in a directed wave(:-))

*vlm.42. Súchí issued from the body of the bird, in the manner of the spirit coming out of it, and the intellect aspiring to higher regions; and as the particles of fragrance fly upon the wings of winds, in order to meet the breath of the nostrils to be borne into the nose.

*vlm.48. It now behoves you, O indra! that art skilled in stratagems, to devise some plan, in order to delude her from her object, or else her devotion will destroy the people, you have so long preserved.

 

VASISHTHA said—

 

इति नारद.तः श्रुत्वा शक्रः सूची-निरीक्षिणे

mArutam preSayAm.Asa dazA-dik-maNDalAni_atha ||3|73|49||

.

thus having heard

the report of nArada.Mangift,

mighty indra

sent the mAruta.Wind

to search.for sUchI.Pin

in all the ten directions.

iti nArada.ta: zrutvA – thus having heard from nArada.Mangift = zakra: sUcI-nirIkSiNe – shakra, when searching-for sUchI = mArutam preSayAm.Asa – sent the mAruta.Wind - dazA.diG-maNDalAny atha – in the ten directions from there.

*sv.49 VASISTHA continued: Hearing this, indra commissioned Vayu the wind-god to find out the exact spot where Sucika dwelt.

*vlm.49. Vasishtha said:--indra having heard these words of Nárada, sent Maruta (Eolus) the god of winds to her search, in all quarters of the globe.

*sv.50..67 Vayu wafted through all the different planetary systems in the universe and finally entered the earth-plane and descended upon the Himalayas where, on account of its proximity to the sun, there was no vegetation and the whole area looked like an arid desert.

*vlm.50. The god Maruta then proceeded in quest of her, in his spiritual form of intelligence; and having traversed the etherial regions, alighted upon the nether world. The winds and all other elemental and physical powers, are believed to be endued with intelligence also; and not as mere brute forces, on account of the regular discharge of their proper functions, which they could never do without intelligence. (Hence the imagination and adoration of the Marutgana in, the elemental worship of the Veda).

Or who is SHE??? *AS. She is his perceptive power (sA tasya samvit). Still flowing in the sky, she was looking all over - for our needle!
