English

I meditate on Lord Sadachaleshvara, he who has his abode in Chamatkarapura, and is the beloved one of Girija.

He who is the Kalpataru to those who seek refuge, he who is the savior of the group of celestials seeking protection, he who wears the significant name of one who was worshiped with a lamp lit with water instead of ghee, He is of the form of the nectar-like flow of pure consciousness and bliss.

The Lord Mahalinga, who skillfully protected with grace the king Chamatkara Bhupala, who resides in the midst of a sanctum sanctorum, wherein the shadows of the glowing lamps do not fall, he who breaks down the fear of this ocean-like mundane life, which is the cause for all kinds of sorrows, He is like the bee hovering in the lotus-like hearts of good people, who possess control over their minds and senses. He bears a deer in his hand, which conquers the lotus. He is the nectar-like ocean of mercy. The Lord who has the sacred bull as his vehicle, extolled by Vishnu, resides in the heart of lotus-faced Guruguha.

English

I bow down before the Lord Shri Dakshinamurti, he who is the awareness of the supreme spirit.

He is to be realized through Vedanta, and is seated under the banyan tree. He is enchanted by the music of Vallaki-Veena. His lotus face shines with a nectar-like smile.

He is adept at destroying the sorrow of birth, etc. He is smart in displaying the illusive nature of the universe, and detroys all the doubts of the sages and others through the silent exposition of Mudra. He is the source of Guruguha. He is the sun who removes the primordial darkness of Avidya ignorance. He is the master of masters, beautiful and beyond thought and speech, sports the crescent moon, observes silence, destroyed Cupid, and bestows auspiciousness.

English

O Lord of Kalahasti, You who protect those who take refuge in You, and are the form of Samira (air, one of the five elements), please protect me, oh Rajamauli.

You are the vital force of Indra, Brahma and Vishnu. You are the god of wind, Anila. You illumine ether (Akasha), earth (Bhumi), water (Salila), and fire (Agni).

You are the Lord of Jnanaprasunambika, and are enshrined in the Dakshinakailasa Kshetra, to the pride of devotees. Your lotus-like hands shower the desired boons on all those who pray to You. You are compassionate toward the afflicted, and destroyed Cupid-Manmatha and the Anjanan-ignorance. You are Pashupati, the Lord of all beings, and received the Jnanopadesha from Guruguha. You are the embodiment of Existence, Knowledge and Bliss. You have the fame of being worshiped by a low-caste hunter.

Notes

  1. This composition of ShrI MuttusvAmi DIkshitar is in praise of the dieties at the temple of vEdAraNyam, on the south-east coast of Tamil Nadu, near TiruvAroor (Raghavan, 1975).
  2. The pallavi seems to have been inspired by the classic opening shlOka of KAlidAsa's Raghuvamsha (vAgarthAviva sampRktau) exalting the divine parents.
  3. "Bauli" features as a soochita rAga mudra in this epithet.
  4. Legend has it that the sage Agastya was unable to attend the wedding of Shiva and PArvatI in KailAsha and hence the celebrations were repeated for his benefit at VedAraNyam. lIlA-vigrahau probably refers to the act of giving sage Agastya darshan of the marriage (Srini Pichumani, pers. comm.).
  5. sOpAna-mArga and gandharasAdhArau are probably advaitic notions.
  6. guru-guha, the composer's signature, can also be literally taken to mean Lord ShaNmukha in this context.

English

May I become the devotee of Lord Tyagaraja. Then, though I am ignorant now, I shall become omniscient.

He whose form is fascinating to Goddess Katyayani, He is renowned for annihilating desires. He whose form is annointed with sacred ashes, He is the personification of intelligence, purity, and eternal bliss.

He is worshiped in the evenings by Lord Indra and others, enjoys the music of the Atishuddhamaddala drums, protects devotees such as Navanandis, and is surrounded by the worshiping Devas as well as Asuras. He who is adorned by garlands of lotus and lilies, wearing a garment of gold studded with gems, He is the progenitor of the handsome Guruguha, sports in Kamalapura, and delights in the various dances performed by the Rudra Ganikas. The beauty of His hands exceeds that of a lotus, he who is Shankara, the destroyer of Tripura, the great Hara.

English

I meditate on Lord Valmikalinga, he who shares half of his body with goddess Parvati.

One who bestows auspicious boons, is the lord of Shripura, saluted by celestials, He is the divine Vithivitanka.

He is the destroyer of the fear and annoyance of Indra, of other celestials and of Vishnu who sports the bow, which emerged from the sacrifice performed by Brahma in Kurukshetra. Bestower of auspiciousness, holding deer in one hand, He is the honey bee hovering over the lotus-faced Parvati, born in the lunar dynasty. Progenitor of Guruguha, He is revered by Sanaka and other great sages. Friend of Kubera, He has elephant skin as his robe, and bears the crescent on his head. He is the self-luminous star.

I salute Lord Siddhishvara again and again. He is the one of great renown.

He is the foremost among the learned ones. He is supreme, with none his equal. His skillful hands dispense ephemeral and eternal bliss. He is Shankara, established in Vishuddhacakra, confering eternal bliss on his devotees.

He, the Hara destroyer of evils, resides in the hearts of the pious ones. His form is adorned with blue silk and always bestows good fortune. He is clad in tiger skin and is adorned with a crescent moon on his head. He is the source of the five subtle elements, such as sound, etc. He confers all the four values, beginning with Dharma. Guruguha is his progeny. He, who subdued Cupid, manifests through Karma, Jnana, and Yoga.
