Guru Gunasthavana (Part 22) -By Dr. B. Basker

————————————————————-——————

 

vaca sanksiptaya yadvahucaritamupavarnayastvam murareh
kinca sriraghavendra vratipa raghupatestena no vismaye’ham|
kimva duh sadhyamasti trijagati mahatamatmanah panipadme
pasyamando marandah kilaghatajanusa colirakari sindhuh|| 35

Meaning:

This shloka highlights the greatness of two works Sri Rama charitra manjari and Sri Krishna charitra manjari which comprises of 11 verses and 28 verses respectively.  The greatness of Sri Rayaru is clearly evident in these works where the great saint has condensed the crux of the great epic in just 11 verses and the entire dashama skanda of Sri Mad Bhagawatha in 28verses.  The author of this poem also says that for great mahans like Sri Rayaru it is not a very big task.

Sri Vadindraru beautifully gives an allusion about sage agastya who had just shrunk the entire ocean to help the gods .  Indeed what is not possible by great personalities.

Charama sloka:
Doorvaadidvaantaravaea vaishnaveandeevareandavea Sri raghaveandraguruvea namotyantadayaluvea ||
He is like the sun in removing the darkness of propagation of untruth; He is like the moon in causing the flowering up of the devotees of Sri Vishnu; He is merciful to the greatest extent. I bow to Sri Guru Raghavendra.
Poojyaaya raghaveandraaya satyadharmaratayacha Bhajataam kalpavrukshaaya namataam kaamadheanuvea ||
I bow to Sri Raghavendra Swamy of the following reputation:Revered; he guides us in the straight path of truth and good conduct; He fulfils the prayers of devotees completely just like the divine tree (kalpavrisksha) and the holy cow (kamadenu).
Mookopi yathprasadena |Mukunda Shayanaayathe || Raja raajayathe riktho |Raghavendram tamaashraye ||
With whose blessings even a dumb can speak as eloquently as Sri Adi Sesha(Thousand Headed Serpent on which Lord Sri Vishnu rests) and with whose blessings a pauper turns into a rich, to them, Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamygalu, I’m surrendering my self !!!
