NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM - 10 - VARIETY OF CREATION


Dasakam - 10 - Variety of Creation







Brahma having got the grace of Lord, started creation of yaksha, kinnara, other living and non-living things on earth. He also seeded ignorance by way of false apprehension, egoism, attachment, anger and fear in the living beings and later repenting for it, meditated upon the Lord for purification.

Four sages Sanaka, Sananda, Sanatanaand, Sanatkumara were created to help him with creation work. They spent time on meditation and contemplation due to extreme devotion to Lord and did not offer help. 

Brahma in anger then created Rudra. Rudra saw the world around and the undesirable happenings in it and started to shed tears, so Brahma named him rudra and asked him to start the creation. Rudra started to create beings which were frightful and so Brahma asked rudra to stop creation and directed him to perform penance for the sake of welfare of the world. 

Then came Dharmadeva, Karmadeva and Saraswathi. Brahma attracted to his own creation Saraswathi, later created vedas, puranas from his four faces and taught them to his sons. Unable to do creation further, Brahma surrendered to Lord once again, upon which he gained wisdom to create Male and female by dividing his body in to male concept and female concept. First male was called Swayambhumanu and female Satarupa who then took care of creation of species.

After explaining the process of creation of species, Bhattathiri prayed to Lord Guruvayoorappa who was responsible for evolution of human race, to cure him of his disease. Lord acknowledged his request immediately.

NARAYANEEYAM DASKAM - 9 - CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE

Dasakam - 9 - Creation of the Universe







Brahma who originated from the Lotus, started to wonder the source of the lotus, saw on all four sides as he got four faces and eight eyes. Even with self-introspection, he could not identify himself and source of Lotus on which he was sitting. 

Brahma did meditation with focused intellect for hundred divine years when he got blessed with the beautiful vision of Lord reclining on Adhisesha. Bhattathiri worshipped the divine form of Lord, decked with crown,bracelets, necklaces and other ornaments, wearing Pitambara, with colour of blue lilly flower and wearing the Kausthubh jewel round the neck and sparkling like the Kalaya flower, as revealed to Brahma.

Brahma happy with Lord's divine form, worshipped him and did tapas under his direction for another 100 divine years, gathered strength and intelligence to start creation of three worlds and other beings. Bhattathiri requested the Lord to bestow on him, mercy, like he did for Brahma and cure his ailments. Lord acknowledged his request immediately.

NARAYANEEYAM DASAKAM 5 - THE ORIGIN OF THE UNIVERSE (VIRATA PURUSHA)

Dasakam 5 - The Origin of the Universe (Virata Purusha)






Narayana Bhattadiri explained how the universe came in to existence in this Dasakam and ultimately requested the creator of VIRAT to cure his ailments.

Before pralaya kaalam, kaala, karma, guna and jivas all lay within the supreme consciousness of the Lord Vishnu. At the end of the Pralaya, Lord with his mere glance, brought out the maya and started Shrishti of three worlds.

Maya combined with intelligence which consists of Sathwa, Rajas and tamas gunas all in equal proportion, called mahat. Lord then added more Tamas to mahat and created the Ahamkara. This ahamkara mixed with three gunas in various combinations and then gnanendriyas, Karmendriyas and Anthakaranas were formed.

Then came the five elements of Thanmathras from the tamasa aspect of Ahamkara and then the five pancha bhoothas, when Lord activated and combined them, Brahmananda and Hiranya andam or the universe was created.

After thousand years, came the 14 worlds called VIRAT and Lord's cosmic form with thousands of hands, thousands of feet, thousands of heads called VIRAT ROOPAM.
