Bhakti

Bhakti is the pleasant, smooth, direct path to God.

NARAYANEEYAM -Dasakam: 1

Narayaneeyam has its own efficacies like relief from illness, happy family life, good progeny and the good fortune to be wealthy. One will attain good health, long life and realize one’s dreams if one chants these slokas with full awareness of their meaning.Whenever i am depressed or I am in worries I used to read Narayaneeyam . I read it so many times.When now I began to read again Narayaneeyam and it just occurred to me that I must translate Narayaneeyam into English, I began immediately I refer meaning for slogas from Late Brahmasree Sengalipuram Anantharama Deekshidar has given Bhagavatham and Narayaneeyam Discourses in Tamil. Learning the language of prayer is not very easy ......and that was the toughest lesson I learnt . I am not a scholar in Sanskrit. With Guruvayoorappan’s blessings i am trying to translate .. May He bless us all!

Krishna we cannot understand you completely. You cannot be conquered by knowledge. But you can be conquered—and seen —through Bhakthi .O Lord of Guruvayoorappa! You are an ocean of kindness! Those who are worshipping you with devotion be freed them from all diseases, mental and physical problems! Let them have longevity, health,and everlasting happiness.

Dasakam: Shlokam: 1

Lord Krishna in the holy shrine of Guruvayoor is the greatest good fortune of mankind in this Kali Yuga:


सान्द्रानन्दावबोधात्मकमनुपमितं कालदेशावधिभ्यां

निर्मुक्तं नित्यमुक्तं निगमशतसहस्रेण निर्भास्यमानम्

अस्पष्टं दृष्टमात्रे पुनरुरुपुरुषार्थात्मकं ब्रह्म तत्वं

तत्तावद्भाति साक्षाद् गुरुपवनपुरे हन्त भाग्यं जनानाम्



SaandraanandaavabOdhaatmakamanupamitaM kaaladeshaavadhibhyaaM

aspaShTaM dR^iShTamaatre punarurupuruShaarthaatmakaM brahma tatvaM

tattaavadbhaati saakshaadgurupavanapure hanta bhaagyaM janaanaam ..



The Brahma Tatwa ,which is dense concentrated Bliss, which is of the nature of the Pure Consciousness, This Brahma Tatwa which is not easy to grasp. Even the Vedas cannot fully comprehend or describe it but it can be attained through single minded devotion by the true Bhakthas of Lord Krishna in the Guruvaayur temple. Oh! What good fortune for the people who seek thy Grace.



Dasakam: 1 Shlokam: 2

Lord Krishna at Guruvayoor is such an easy access to eternal salvation:


एवंदुर्लभ्यवस्तुन्यपि सुलभतया हस्तलब्धे यदन्यत्

तन्वा वाचा धिया वा भजति बत जन: क्षुद्रतैव स्फुटेयम्

एते तावद्वयं तु स्थिरतरमनसा विश्वपीड़ापहत्यै

निश्शेषात्मानमेनं गुरुपवनपुराधीशमेवाश्रयाम:


evaM durlabhyavastunyapi sulabhatayaa hastalabdhe yadanyat

tanvaa vaachaa dhiyaa vaa bhajati bata janaH kshudrataiva sphuTeyam .

ete taavadvayaM tu sthirataramanasaa vishvapiiDaapahatyai

nishsheShaatmaanamenaM gurupavanapuraadhiishamevaashrayaamaH .. 2


Although Common mortals are so easily accessible to all, due to their intrinsic lowly nature, people, pursue other worldly things with their body speech and mind go in pursuit of worldly pleasures. May we all realize our craziness and worship with complete faith for the total eradication of all our suffering and we have to believe who is the incarnation of the entire soul of all beings of the universe, Lord of Guruvaayur alone can alleviate all our sorrows.


Dasakam: 1 Shlokam: 3

The great sage Vyaasa has identified Lord in the form of Suddha Sathva:

सत्त्वं यत्तत् पराभ्यामपरिकलनतो निर्मलं तेन तावत्

भूतैर्भूतेन्द्रियैस्ते वपुरिति बहुश: श्रूयते व्यासवाक्यम्।

तत् स्वच्छ्त्वाद्यदाच्छादितपरसुखचिद्गर्भनिर्भासरूपं

तस्मिन् धन्या रमन्ते श्रुतिमतिमधुरे सुग्रहे विग्रहे ते

tat svachChatvaadyadachChaadita parasukhachidgarbhanirbhaasaruupaM

tasmin dhanyaa ramante shrutimatimadhure sugrahe vigrahe te .. 3


The great sage Vyaasa has identified Lord in the form of Suddha Sathva . which compared to the other two Gunas (Rajas and Tamas) That Satva Guna is absolutely pure . From such pure Satva guna,Thy form was born. It is thus stated by sage Vyaasa, again and again, in many scriptures.Lord form because of such purity, Contemplation of this pure divine is supremely resplendent.I n that form is pleasurable to the mind and ears . In that form the fortunate ones can reveal.

Dasakam: 1 Shlokam: 4

Thy other part of All incarnation:

निष्कम्पे नित्यपूर्णे निरवधिपरमानन्दपीयूषरूपे

निर्लीनानेकमुक्तावलिसुभगतमे निर्मलब्रह्मसिन्धौ

कल्लोलोल्लासतुल्यं खलु विमलतरं सत्त्वमाहुस्तदात्मा

kallOlOllaasatulyaM khalu vimalataraM sattvamaahustadaatmaa

kasmaannOniShkalastvaM sakala iti vachastvatkalaasveva bhuuman..4


Oh Lord! You are ever full, changeless, unchanging form of Suddha Sathva and of the nature of giving supreme happiness to all true devotees unlimited. innumerable liberated souls are absorbed in Thy Brahmic bliss and embedded like pure pearls in the waves of this ocean. hence it is extremely resplendent. Thine as Lord Krishna can be called the only complete one. Hence why cannot Thou be called as Poorna-avataar (Nishkalaa)?

Dasakam: 1 Shlokam: 5

Thy glance alone can activate Maya


निर्व्यापारोऽपि निष्कारणमज भजसे यत्क्रियामीक्षणाख्यां

तेनैवोदेति लीना प्रकृतिरसतिकल्पाऽपि कल्पादिकाले।

तस्या: संशुद्धमंशं कमपि तमतिरोधायकं सत्त्वरूपं

Oh Birthless Guruvayoorappa! Even though you are not bound by any activities, are without any motive,Thou Even without any action or reason you activate Maya. Because of that only Maya manifests itself if nonexistent in the beginning of a new cycle of creation. Then, form an absolutely pure part which does not obstruct Thy glory of the Saatvic form. Thou O Lord of Vaikuntha! manifests itself as Maya or Prakruthi in full glory, with a Divine form.

Dasakam: 1 Shlokam: 6

People who meditate on Thy divine form which is more beautiful :

तत्ते प्रत्यग्रधाराधरललितकलायावलीकेलिकारं

लावण्यस्यैकसारं सुकृतिजनदृशां पूर्णपुण्यावतारम्।

लक्ष्मीनिश्शङ्कलीलानिलयनममृतस्यन्दसन्दोहमन्त:

Oh Guruvayurappa ! I Thy form excels in the beauty of the fresh rain bearing clouds, and of a beautiful bunch of blue kayam flowers. Thy form is an embodiment of beauty, in the eyes of the people who have done all their good deeds in complete incarnation. Thou are the abode where Goddess Lakshmi plays uninhibitedly becomes the source for pouring flow of nectarine Bliss which being the abode of beauty, is the ultimate haven of all true devotees; On that form of Thine I continuously meditate.


Dasakam: 1 Shlokam: 7

कष्टा ते सृष्टिचेष्टा बहुतरभवखेदावहा जीवभाजा-

O invincible Lord, Earlier, in my ignorance, I had thought that Thy activity of creation was unkind, as it causes a lot of sufferings to the living beings. but now I realise how wrong I was. if there were no creation, how could human beings revel in the ocean of supreme bliss enjoy the beauty and sweetness of Thy form which is Exceedingly delightful to hear and thus revel in the ocean of Supreme-Bliss-Conciousness.

Oh Guruvayurappa !yor are like parijatha tree [parijaata: a heavenly flower]. which is ready to shower on us all that we desire and granting freedom to wretched souls and giving moksha. But due to ignorance people pursue worldly belongings and sensual pleasuresand long for parijatha tree In Indhra’s Garden. when the Kalpaka Vriksha . [Kalpaka: a wish fulfilling tree]in the form of Lord Krishna is waiting to grant them salvation.

O Lord Shri Krishna! While other gods out of compassion, fulfill the desires of their devotees.

Thou are ever satisfied in Thyself are the abode of incomparable attributes. Thou the ruler of Thyself .O Lord! Who does confer Bliss every moment to those enlightened souls who are very fortunate and Thou revel in Thyself alone.

Guruvaayurappan is the fittest One for the title of “Bhagavan.”


ऐश्वर्यं शङ्करादीश्वरविनियमनं विश्वतेजोहराणां

तेजस्संहारि वीर्यं विमलमपि यशो निस्पृहैश्चोपगीतम्।

अङ्गासङ्गा सदा श्रीरखिलविदसि क्वापि ते सङ्गवार्ता

तद्वातागारवासिन् मुरहर भगवच्छब्दमुख्याश्रयोऽसि॥१०॥

tadvaataagaaravaasin murahara bhagavachChabdamukhyaashrayO(a)si .. 10



O Lord Guruvaayurappa! By addressing the Lord as “Murahara " or “ the destroyer of Mura", Your supremacy is in controlling all other Gods beginning withSankara. all others who excel in valour in the whole Universe. Thy pure fame is sung by even the most desireless sages. Laxmi Devi always resides in Thy bosom. Thou are omniscient. Therefore, Lord of Guruvayoor! You are the fittest One for the title of “Bhagavan.”

My Daily Prayer!

கலையாத கல்வியும் குறையாத வயதுமோர் கபடு வாராத நட்பும்
கன்றாத வளமையுங் குன்றாத ­ளமையும் கழுபிணியிலாத உடலும்
சலியாத மனமும் அன்பு அகலாத மனைவியும் தவறாத சந்தானமும்
தாழாத கீர்த்தியும் மாறாத வார்த்தையும் தடைகள் வாராத கொடையும்
தொலையாத நிதியமும் கோணாத கோலும் ஒரு துன்பமில்லாத வாழ்வும்
துய்ய நின் பாதத்தில் அன்பும் உதவி பெரிய தொண்டரொடு கூட்டு கண்டாய்
அலையாழி அறிதுயிலு மாயனது தங்கையே! ஆதிகட வூரின் வாழ்வே!
அமுதீசர் ஒருபாகம் அகலாத சுகபாணி! அருள்வாமி! அபிராமியே
- அபிராமி பட்டர்
“Learning that goes not awry, a life span that is not shortened, and friendship that knows no guile,
Prosperity that never diminishes, youth that does not whither, and a body that sees no disease,
A mind that is never vexed, a wife whose love wavers not, and children who never know disobedience,
Fame that never decreases, a word that I go back on not, and charity that has no hurdles,
Wealth that is not thieved, a government that is never Adhaarmic, and a life that knows no despair,
At your esteemed feet, you gave me love and support,
and made me one amongst the great people who serve you,
The sister of he who lies in sleep on the milk ocean, the one who lives in the town of Kadavoor,
Oh thee, who separates not from one side of the body of Amutheeswarar,
Oh Goddess with the hands that bestows boons, bless us with these, Oh Abhiraami”
- Abhiraami Bhattar
