NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 6 - COSMIC FORM OF THE LORD

Dasakam - 6 - Cosmic Form of the Lord






After having explained about the creation of universe, Narayana Bhattathiri detailed how everything in this universe got created. The fourteen worlds were created, Brahma from his head crown, Swarga loka from his chest, Yama from Molars, ashwini devas, sky, water, air, earth, fire, Sun, moon, stars, ocean, human beings, their classification based on the work they do, animals, the virtues, adharma, dharma deva, greed, modesty, Maya, speech, tunes all from his various parts of the body and his movement indicated time.

Thus, explaining the VIRAT swaroopam of the Lord, Bhattathiri wanted everyone to remember his cosmic form always and especially at the time of liberation and death, while he prayed Lord Guruvayoorappa to eradicate his ailments.

Gist of creation: The "Brahmanda", the nucleus of the Universe evolved itself. The Lord thus became the Virat --the Universe of fourteen worlds. The 14 worlds consisted of the following seven higher spheres and seven nether regions. Higher worlds: Bhuh, Bhuvah, Suvah, Mahah, Jana, Tapah, Satyam. Nether worlds: Atala, Vitala, Sutala, Rasatala, Talatala, Mahatala, Patala. Note that all these came from his various parts of the body.
