NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 21 - DIFFERENT FORMS OF LORD AND WORSHIP


Dasakam - 21 - Different Forms of Lord and Worship






The earth's middle region is called Ilaavrata and is inhabited exclusively by women with Gauri (Parvati) as their chief. Lord Siva, present there in the form of Ardhanareeshwara and Lord Vishnu is worshipped as Sankarshana by Shiva through sacred mantras and hymns of praise.

Bhadraswa, east of Ilaavrata, is inhabited by Bhadravasas and they worship Lord in the form of Hayagreeva, who is the embodiment of Knowledge.

Harivarsha is to the south of Ilaavrata where Prahalada and other devotees pray to lord in Narahari form whose body is tall and white, calm and bestower of knowledge of Brahman.

To the west of Ilaavrata is the Ketumala, where lord is in the form of Kamadeva and worshipped by Lakshmi and sons of Prajapathi.

Ramyaka which is to the north is the place where Vaivaswata Manu worships Lord in the form of fish or Matsya, who shines in the heart of those who are devoid of attachments.

To the north of Ramyaka is region Hiranmaya, where Lord resides in the form of huge Tortoise which bore the Mandara mountain on its back and worshipped by Chief of Pitrus, Aryama.

Lord exists in the form of divine varaha who took the avataar to save the earth to the north of Hiranmaya. Goddess of Earth worships the Lord by singing hymns in praise here.

Kimpurusha, to the south of Ilaavrata is the place where Lord exists in the form of Rama and is worshipped by the mighty Hanuman with supreme devotion.

In the bharathakanda region, Lord exists in the form of Narayana with his companion Nara until the pralaya kaalam, to protect the devotees and is worshipped by Sage Narada and other supreme devotees with hymns based on Sankya yoga and Ashtanga yoga.

People worship Lord in the form of sun in plaaksha and moon in shaalmala, fire in kushadveep, water in Kraunch, wind in shaaka, and as Brahmaa in Pushkara.

Lord is worshipped by great sages and stars such as Dhruva and planets at dawn noon and dusk in the form of Simsumara, the enormous fish.

Narayana bhattathiri worships Lord Guruvayoorappan in the form of Adhisesha residing at Paataal loka with thousand heads wearing blue dress with a plough in the hand as weapon and requests him to accept his praise and eradicate his ailments.
