Jai Shri Krishna,
Some more stories

Balarama slays Dhenukasura
*********************

Dhenukasura was a powerful demon who had assumed the form of an ass. With
his demon friends he was occupying Talavana, one of the twelve forests of
Vrindavana. Out of fear of these demons no one could approach Talavana and
enjoy the numerous flowers and fruits in the forest. Balarama, induced by
His cowherd friends, entered the forest desiring to kill the demons. He
began shaking the fruit trees, making a big noise. Dhenuka, furious at the
intrusion, attacked Balarama with his rear legs, but Balarama easily picked
him up by his legs and whirled him around until he died. As the other demon
friends of Dhenuka rushed to attack, Krishna and Balarama picked them up and
threw them on trees, killing them. Soon the forest was free of all demons,
and it appeared that the bent trees were being directed by Balarama to pay
obeisances to Krishna.

Balarama kills Pralambasura
********************

Once when Krishna and Balarama were playing with the cowherd boys, a demon
named Pralamba entered their midst, disguised as a cowherd boy.
Understanding the invincible potency of Krishna, he instead decided to
abduct Balarama. At the end of the game, as the losing party he was supposed
to carry Balarama on his shoulders. Carrying the Lord on his shoulders he
ran swiftly, but Balarama realizing the true identity of demon began to make
himself heavier and heavier. Unable to bear the weight, the demon assumed
his original form which was like a huge dark effulgent cloud, decorated with
golden ornaments. Balarama then bought His fist down the head of the demon
splitting it into two and causing him to give up his life.

Kauravas chastised
***************

Samba, the darling son of Jambavati and Krishna, kidnapped Laksmana the
daughter of Duryodhana from the assembly were she was supposed to choose her
husband. The furious Kauravas after a prolonged fight, finally arrested
Samba by sending in six of their greatest warriors. When the Yadavas heard
of this they prepared for battle but Lord Balarama pacified them, preferring
to find a peaceful solution. However when He requested the Kauravas to
return Samba and Laksmana, the Kauravas responded by insulting Him and the
Yadava dynasty. Understanding them to be ignorant in their false prestige,
Balarama took His plow and began to drag Hastinapura into the Ganges. The
terrified Kauravas now surrendered to the lotus feet of Balarama, begging
for His mercy. They immediately returned Samba and Laksmana and had them
married ceremoniously with many opulent gifts.

Balarama marries Revati
******************

In Satya yuga there was a King named Raivata whose daughter Revati was
excellent in all respects. Unable to find a match suitable for her, the king
took her to the court of Brahma for his advise. After waiting for some time
when the king met with Brahma, he was shocked to learn that in the short
time he spent in the Brahmaloka, millions of years had already passed on
Earth and at the time Dvapara yuga was concluding. However Lord Brahma
informed King Raivata that present at this time was Lord Balarama Who was
more than qualified to be the husband of Revati.
King Raivata returned and approached Balarama to accept Revati as His wife.
However Revati belonged to an earlier yuga when people were much larger
physically. So Lord Balarama placed His plow on her head until she shrunk to
an appropriate size and accepted her as His wife.

Jai Shree Krishna,

Well Sitalji, I will attempt to answer the question very briefly as I can't remember all too well!

When vaishnavs have had bhramsabandh with Thakorji, it means that we have surrendered ourselves and everything we have to Him. As part of this process whereby we are surrendering to Him, Thakorji in turn bestows His grace onto us by being our provider, protector, etc. Therefore, as Thakorji provides protection to His souls every day of the year, it is on Rakshabandhan that the bhakto's say to Thakorji that with your grace, allow us to be able to protect you for this one day. The rakhi therefore symbolises protection for Thakorji. It is also a symbol to deflect nazar against Thakorji.

I hope that this is atleast a little accurate? Please feel free to add or correct any mistakes.

Jai Shree Krishna

Thanks Nitalji, for your lovely summary.

Pusthidasji once told us a varta of a gopi called Madhuri. It was a lovely lengthy story, will quickly narrate the ending as it relates to Rakhi.

Madhuri had just offered Thakorji a plate full of Makhan and rotli, whilst Thakorji was partaking of the Samagri, she sat besides him admiring his roop. Unable to keep her eyes of him except at the same time also very shy she asked Thakorji to look down to the floor, so she could consume his darshan without feeling embarrassed.

He complied with her request, after he had his meal Thakorji faced the floor whilst Madhuri beheld his exquisite swaroop in her eyes and heart, however, after a while she panicked at the thought of her own bad nazar (eye casts a bad spell) on him. So she immediately ripped up a string from her new chania choli and tied it on Thakorji for protection.

Vallah Vaishnavs, do add other stories or thoughts?

JSK
