SLOKAM 9:
*********

YATTHU THRIALOKHYA ROOPAM DHADHAPI CHA TATHO NIRGATHO ANANTHA SUDDHA-
JN~AATHMAA VARTHASE THVAM TAVA KHALU MAHIMAA SOPI THAAVAAN KIMANYATH ?
STHOKASTHE BHAAGA YEVAAKHILA  BHUVANATHAYAA DHRUSYATHE THRAYAMSA KALPAM
BHUYISHTAM SANDHRA MODHAATHMAKAM UPARI TATHO BHAATHI TASMAI NAMASTHE II

(meaning ): Oh GuruvAyUrappA !You bear the three worlds as 
a part of Your SarIram ( VisishtAdhvaithic concept of SarIra-
SaarIra mode);even then , You transcend these worlds and stay as 
Suddha satthva svarUpan in Your Parama Padham with indescribable
glories. This manifestation of Yours in aprAkrutha Sri Vaikuntam
and the presence in this universe(Prakruthi maNDalam ) as one fourth
of the total is acknowledged by the VedAs. In the three fourth part 
beyond this prakruthi maNDalam , Your presence is acknowledged as
aanandha Mayam . My salutatiuons are to You in that state of 
unmatched bliss .

The Vedha manthram corresponding to this slOkam is the Purusha-
Sooktha Manthram :

yEthAvAnasya mahimA athOjyAyAmsccha pUrusha:
PaadhOsya VisvA bhUthAni thripAdhasyaamrutham dhivi 

(meaning ):Such indeed is the vast glories of this 
Parama Purushan .He is the supreme One amidst all.
The creations -the chEthanams and the achEthanams-
under His control are only a small portion (one fourth)
of His glories such as Aanandham and Jn~Anam .That 
which is three fourth is in His Sri Vaikuntam.

AVYAKTHAM thE SVAROOPAM DHURADHIGAMATAMAM TATTHU SUDDHAIKA SATTVAM
VYAKTHAM CHAPYETHADHEVA SPUTAMAMRUTHA RASAAMBHODHI KALLOLA THULYAM

MOORTHIM thE SAMSRAYOHAM BHUVANAPURAPATHE PAAHI MAAM KRISHNA RHOGAATH

(MEANING):This is a prayer to Sri KrishNan at the end of this
dasakam .Oh Lord ! Your attributeless form is difficult to
comprehend and meditate upon . Your Suddha sattva-svarUpa archA form
is very distinctly visible to my human eye here in Your Sannidhi.
This shining archA form of Yours constituted entirely by Suddha sattvam 
and is like the waves of the ocean of nectar.Therefore , I have 
taken refuge at Your superior archA form , which is the abode of 
anantha kalyANa guNams and is the most effective in attracting 
my mind.Oh Lord of GuruvAyUr ! please save me from all the samsAric 
and physical diseases !

Sri KrishNAya nama:
