NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 99 - VEDA STUTI

 Dasakam - 99 - Veda Stuti






In this dasakam, Narayana Bhattathiri described about the glory of the Lord.

Lord Krishna measured the three worlds with his three strides and made this world experience joy with wealth and prosperity by mere touch of his feet. He is the supporter of the three worlds. Bhattathiri wondered if anyone can even explain the greatness of Lord, just like how one cannot count the sand particles in the universe. He pleaded to Guruvayoorappan for a place in Vaikuntam, the abode of Lord, in the present birth itself, where the juice of immortality flows freely and devotees stay happily for ever,  enjoying the bliss. Lord nodded his head and acknowledged his request immediately. 

One who is devoted to Lord, meditates on him every minute and gives 'havis' with great love by performing yagna. One who describes Lord as one who exists from the beginning, responsible for creation and protection appearing in different dimensions,  describes glory of Sri Krishna more than any other form is sure to experience happiness and be celebrated during his life and in the end reaches his abode. Bhattathiri requested poets to sing the detailed glory of Lord, the essence of all Vedas, detailing his various incarnations taken in this earth. He requested the knowledgeable to chant the names of the Lord which only can give the endless joy. Bhattathiri wished to earn the supreme consciousness by singing or chanting the Lord's various names. 

One should reflect and meditate on the great deeds of Lord Vishnu, by which he destroyed the evil and protected the good,  and established righteousness, helped Indra sometimes as a servant and some times as a friend, bringing welfare to the entire universe through his incarnations. The great saints and siddha purushas contemplated always on his supreme state of consciousness. Learned Brahmins perform the austerities and chant vedas, praise his glory through various shloka and enlighten everyone about Lord's abode. There is no one in this universe who knew Lord's glory completely either in the past or going to know in the future. Having known that chanting Lord's names gives the best life, Bhattathiri chanted his names often and invoked the Lord who resides in the vaikunta above all the three lokas, with hymns and stotras in praise of his glory.

This world was filled with water in the very beginning. Lord appeared in this water body in the reclined position and was embodiment of all jivas. A lotus flower arose from the navel of the Lord, who has no birth nor death. Sages treat the Lotus as this world and its petals as the directions and the bud as the Meru Mountain. Bhattathiri empathised with those people who are not aware that Lord Vishnu created this world. Many have not realised that his limitless form, different from the jivatma, resides in the every soul. This is due to the fact that they are blinded by maya and always concentrate on fulfilling their sensual and material desires and involve themselves in doing things to make themselves happy. It is sad to note that such people are not devoted to Lord Mukunda.

Lord with his thousands of heads, eyes and feet fill the whole universe and transcend beyond it. Yet he is present in the limited space of the heart of the people. He existed in the past and will remain in the future too.  He is all pervading in body and senses still enjoys the supreme state of liberation. Lord constitutes three worlds and also transcends beyond it as eternal, pure, knowledge consciousness form and his limitless glory is the only reason for it. Bhattathiri prostrated and surrendered before that supreme consciousness, of which only one-fourth, constitute the three worlds. Remaining three-fourth transcends all the worlds and is in a state of eternal bliss.

Lord's unmanifested form (Nirguna swaroopam) is very difficult to grasp. However his pure, sattva, supreme blissful form (Saguna swaroopam) could be understood clearly. This shining Krishna form is appearing like waves in the ocean of nectar.  Hence Bhattathiri loved to pray and offer pooja to the idol of the Lord Krishna who is supreme among qualities and attributes, affectionate, attractive to mind and requested the Lord to cure him of all his afflictions. Lord Guruvayoorappan nodded his head and acknowledged his request immediately.


Lyrics of Dasakam 99
