1.Avaniyile     oru ambalam undu, athai,  Aatkollum   deviyin arumaigalai  ,
Ayiram navulla ananthanaalum  , Cholla aakaathu aval perumaikalai
Athisayamaam intha akhiladeswari  ,  AAthi vasam cheyyum  naadethu  ,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

There is a temple in this earth  and even the  thousand   tounged ,
Adhi Sesha cannot describe   the greatness  of the goddess  who rules there ,
In which place  does This Goddess  who rules  the universe live?
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

2,Ambikai un chenthamarai kan   adiyenil patta thamathameno ,
Ambuja lochani , shambhuvin nayagi , lambodharanin  thaaye  nee,
Sankari unnudaya mainthanin  kuraikal  chathum  cheviyil  yera villayo,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Oh mother Goddess, Why this delay for your lotus eyes   to fall on me,
Oh lotus eyed Goddess ., the consort of Shiva, the mother of big paunched  Ganesa,
Oh Sankari , Did  not all the problems of your   son , fall  in your ears  ,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

3.Sambhavi unnudaya  sameepyam  vara  chathrum thamatham   cheyyathe  ,
Sarupyathudan  sayujyathayum  thavaraamal  thanthiduvaai,
Thai thanthai athra  chei  aagiya  naan  neeye thunai  yendru  yenniduven,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Oh Consort  of Shambhu  , do not make any delay  in giving  your nearness  to me,
Without failing   show me  your form , you please grant us salvation,
I , who am a baby  without parents, Would think that  you are my only help,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

4.Paarinil undhanai  poal  oru deivam , parameswariye   verillai,
Pasiyaamal yendrum  padiyalanthidum , saubhagyathayum nee   alippai,
Mudivinil   unnudaya   mukthi padha then moodanaagilum  thanthiduvai.
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Oh divine Goddess , in this world  , there is no other  God like you,
You  keep me  free from hunger  by giving food, please  also give me  prosperity
Even though I am a fool , at the end  please give me your honey like  salvation,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

5,Pala   durithangal cheithathanaale  , paarinil vandhu  piranthen naan,
Pala kadal thaandi  un paadha kamalathai  cheravum naan vazhi ariyene,
Ammaye  unnudaya  punnya   darisanam  paapi yenakku  kai varumaa?
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Due to having   done  very  many bad acts , I  was born in this  world,
I do not know  the way to reach your lotus like   feet after  crossing   several  oceans,
Oh Mother  , when will this sinner   get to see your divine   form?
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

6.Thangathinaale thaazhi kudamum, Thamirathile  mel purayum,
Chithuliyaadiya  sri  kovilagam , chuthrum deepa   sthambathudan,
Chuthumbalamum  seeveligalum   chinthithaale  thunbamillai.
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

The golden pot  at the top of the temple, the roof  made out of  copper,
The  extremely well made  sanctum , surrounded by   pillars   of lamp,
The corridor round the temple   and the divine procession,if  thought over , no sorrow would be there,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

7.Vajrathinaale mani magudam kanden  , vaidoorythil  kireedam kanden,
Uchithamakave   pachaigal izhaitha, swarnabharanam naan kanden,
Piramathi poale   mathi mukham kanden , pinnale jadai   azhagai  kanden,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

I saw  her decorated by diamond  and crown decorated by cat’s eye ,
I saw her   golden ornaments which were  properly decorated  by emeralds,
I saw   her face  which was  like moon,   and I also saw the beauty of her braid hanging  at her back,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

8.Pala vidha aabaranathudan  , mangalya kumizhai   kanden,
Manjula un thanga malar karam  kankanam anivathai naan kanden,
Iru kai viralilum   rathnanguleeyam, laagavamaagave   darikka kanden,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Along with several types of ornaments I saw the mangalyam  on you,
Oh pretty Goddess  I saw your  protective hands wearing  bangles,
And I saw   you   wearing gem studded  rings on fingers of both hands   very easily,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

9,Chithidai thannil   chelai   uduthi   pattai aranjaanai  kanden,
Muthrum thurantha munivar  mayangum  mohana punnagai naan kanden,
Kodiyidai thannil  kuvalayam poala   thuvandu kidakkum   aadai kanden,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

I saw her waist belt over her sari tied over   her waist,
I saw her very pretty smile  which bewitches even sages who have  left everything.
And I saw  on her  very thin waist her dress lying like  earth,
Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

10.Moondradi   alantha mura hari   sodhari, Mukthi alikkum un padamgalai,
Cheerudan  adiyanin   sirasil vaithu   neraai   un padham  thanthiduvai,
Adi muthal mudi varai  adiyen  unthanai   aka  kannaal kanden,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Oh sister of killer of Mura  who measured   three feet, please keep ,
Your feet which grants salvation on my head  and give me salvation.

Oh Goddess of Chothanikkara  who with fame lives there , I surrender to your divine feet.

11.OOrum sathamillai  , naadum sathamillai  , uthaar uravinar   sathamillai,
Uyirum sathamilli , udalum sathamiillai , Un arul ondre pothum amma,
Udalai vittu   uyir uyyum velayil , un karunai thaan  venumammaa ,
Cheerudan meviya   chothanikarai devi un tiruvadi saranam.

Our place of origin is not permanent, our  country is not permanent ,Friends and relatives are not permanent,
Soul is not permanent , body is not permanent, All   that  i need is your blessing,
When the soul  is leaving the body , I need   only your mercy,

Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavanthu

Loka Samastha  Sukhino Bhavanthu

Compiled by
P.R.Ramachander



(My blessings and thanks to my face book friend who kindled  all these  thoughts by posting  about the name “Narayana”)

The word “Narayana “  has several meanings like , “one  who lives on water” The supreme being” , “Direction  of human being” , “Shelter  of a human being” etc..The Narayana  suktha  , one of the Vedic  prayer  addressed  to Narayana says

Sahasra seersham devam viswaksham viswa sambhuvam.
Viswam narayanam  devam aksharam paramam padam.                                                    1

I meditate on god Narayana,
Who has thousands of heads,
Who sees everywhere,
Who does good to all the world,
Who is the world,
Who is indestructible,
And who is the greatest destination.

Viswatha paramanithyam  viswam narayanam harim,
Viswamevedam  purusha stadvischa mupajeevathi.                                                            2

I meditate on God Narayana,
Who is much greater than this world,
Who is forever,
Who is the world,
Who destroys sins and suffering,
And say, that this world is Purusha,
And is alive because he is inside it.

Pathim viswasyatmeshwara, saswatha shivamachyutham,
Narayanam mahagneyam viswathmanam parayanam.                                                        3

I meditate on Narayana,
Who owns this world,
Who is the god of all souls,
Who is forever,
Who is personification of good,
Who never slips,
Who needs to be known with great effort,
Who is the soul of everything,
And who is the great destination.

Narayana paro jyothirathma narayana para,
Narayana para brahma tatwam narayana para.
Narayana paro dyatha , dyanam Narayana para.                                                                  4

Narayana is the great light,
Narayana is the great soul,
Narayana is the ultimate Brahmam,
Narayana is   the great principle,
Narayana is the greatest among those who meditate on him,
And Narayana is the great meditation.

Yachcha  kinchid jagat sarvam drusyathe  sruyathe bhi vaa,
Antharbahischa tatsarva vyapya narayana sthitha.                                                              5    

Narayana is spread,
All over the world.
In everything that we see and hear,
And in its inside and outside.   

        There   is a famous   story of Ajamila who did all possible sins  but went to Land of Vishnu  because  , when he  was dying he called  his son, whose  name   was Narayana. 
     One of the modern day saints   summarising  the   greatness  of name Narayana   says  “Chanting  the Divine name Narayana awakens   the  cosmic love within you so that you can love  everything Unconditionally”

There  is also a great  religious  poem of a great  Vaishnavite   saint  of Tamil Nadu  called Thirumangai  Azhvar   about  the greatness  of the  name Narayana. THirumangai Azhvar   was  one of the great Azhvars  and was considered as the last of the twelve Azhvars who were  great  minstrels  of Vaishnavism. These  minstrels went  all over India  visited  great Vishnu  temples  of those times  and composed  prayers(Pasurams) , praising  Gods  of these temples.Among them  the compositions of THirumangai azhvar  is supposed  to be maximum .According  to great savants his most  important  pasuram is

''குலந்தரும் செல்வம் தந்திடும் அடியார்
படுதுயர் ஆயினவெல்லாம்
நிலந்தரம் செய்யும் நீள் விசும்பருளும்
அருளொடு பெருநிலமளிக்கும்
வலந்தரும் மற்றும் தந்திடும் பெற்ற
தாயினும் ஆயின செய்யும்
நலம் தரும் சொல்லை நான் கண்டுகொண்டேன்
நாராயணா என்னும் நாமமே''

“Kulam tharum  , selvam thanthidum , adiyaar,
Padum thuyar aayinavellam ,
NIlantharam cheyyum , neel visumbarulum,
Arulodu  peru nilamalikkum ,
Valam tharum mathrum thanthidum pethha,
THaayinum   aayina   cheyyum,
Nalam tharum chollai naan kandu konden,
Nayanan  yennum naamame

I found out   the word   that gives  all that is good,
That gives us noble birth, grants   wealth .
Which would  mke all the sufferings of devotees,
In to nothing, grant  us forever stay  with  God,
Give  us chance to do service  to God with grace ,
And  would do  everything that mother will do,
And that  word is   the name   Narayana

Great scholars  believe  that Pasuram  gives  out the essence  of Divya Prabandham (the collected  work of all Azhvars.They believed that  if this pasuram is chanted  in the  ears of dying man, he would definitely attain God.


Om Namo Narayanaya.
