2)a knowledge of "Paratantriya" preached by the word 'Namaha'.
4)a knowledge of "Bhagavata-seshatva-jnana"
5)a desire for Bhagavat-Kainkarya and
6) Bhogdritva Nivritti.
|You must bestow
on us the above mentioned gifts. Oh, Lord who protects all, during Sankarakala, by concealing them in your bosom,
reposing on the banyan leaf! if you be graciously pleased to give us all that we
desire, our nonbu will end successfully. (In this pasuram, 'conches'
stand for Ananyarha-seshatva jnana; Drum-for Paratantriya jnana; Reciters of
Pallandu-for Satsahavasam; lamp for Bhagavata-seshatva jnana; banner for Kainkarya; and canopy for Bhogdritva Nivritti.).
This is truly a symbolic stanza, which catalogues the various accessories necessary for approaching
the Lord and enjoy His Divine Grace. |
