here is a prayer for Shri Guruvaayuraapan for the speedy recovery of Sri AR.

.. guruvaatapuriisha pa~ncharatnaM ..

This was written by Shri Senkalipuram Anantharama Dikshitar when he went 
to Guruvayur and  was having the darshan of the lord. This song came to 
him at that time. Later he told his disciples that this song when properly
learnt and chanted will make one feel very happy.

There was a small boy who was born in Poongunnam in a very good and
God loving family. But he was suffering from constant headache which he 
thought was incurable. All the medicines that he took were of no use. So
his Grandfather took him to Guruvaayur and both of them stayed there for 
three days and prayed. Everyday they recited this slokam and he was cured
of the terrible headache like magic. 

So whoever chants this shlokam with full faith in the Lord will surely get 
His blessings.

MEANINGS OF THE VERSES

Our pranams to Lord Guruvaayurappa, who endows all wealth on the people
in Kaliyuga, who is the embodiment of all auspicious things, is an ocean of 
mercy and is holding divine weapons like Shanku and Chakkra in his hands. 1..

We bow down to lord Guruvayurappa in whose temple the devotees chant 
divine names of the lord like Narayana , whose divine water is equivalent
to ganges and can remove the troubles of devotees who take a dip in it. 2..

Our salutations to that Guruvaayurappa whose glorious VishwaRoopa is 
surrounded and seen by devotees at the auspicious Bramha Muhurtha and
whose annointed oil cures the ailments of the devotees. 3..

Our humble Namaskarams to that Hari at whose temple devotees perform
Anna-praasanam to their children with your divine prasadam and incessantly
chant the Bhagavatam which is a jewel among the puranas. 4..

We prostrate to Lord Guruvaayurappa who bestows food upon devotees, who
is worshipped by the devas at night  and who is worshipped by his own 
parents and by Uddhawa -a devotee and close friend. 5..

Whoever reads this verse, composed by Anantha Rama Dikshitar, three
times a day everyday, he shall get the blessings of Lord Guruvaayurappa.

Whoever reads this slokam called Guruvaadhapureesa Pancharatnam will
make his heart the abode of The Lord Hari who is as handsome as ten 
thousand Manmatha and shall be blessed with eternal prosperity.
 
Narayana Narayana Narayana Narayana ..
