Narayaniyam Sannavatitamadasakam Meaning:

Oh Lord of infinite glory, Oh Lord who is the universe itself.
You are the divine Brahmam, you are letter “Aa” among the alphabets,
You are “Om” among the mantras, You are Swayabhuva Manu among kings,
You are sage Bhrugu as well as sage Narada among the saints,
You are Kamadhenu among cows, You are Prahlada among asuras,
You are Garuda among birds, You are Adhi Sesha among the serpents,
And not only that You are river Ganges among the rivers. ॥ 96.1 ॥

Among the devotees of Brahmins, you are king Mahabali,
Among the sacrifices you are the sacrifice of chant,
Among the heroes, you are Arjuna himself, among devotees you are Udhava,
You are the strength of the strong, luster of those lustrous beings,
There is no end to your glorious power, all that excel are you yourself,
You are the Purusha (soul) as well as Nature and in this world,
There is nothing at all which is not you. ॥ 96.2 ॥

Those who with devotion carry out the Dharma prescribed to different Varnas,
As well as that Of a Brahmachari after completely dedicating their actions to you,
When detachment increases in their mind, leave out such actions,
And realize that they are themselves the divine Brahmam which has the form,
Of existence, consciousness and bliss, which is same in all materials and beings,
And which is the cause as well as not the cause for the entire universe,
And also get the real knowledge of you who is pure and great. ॥ 96.3 ॥

The three paths of Jnana Yoga, Bhakti Yoga and Karma yoga are the methods,
Of this world to reach you who is the divine Brahmam, and among the three,
Jnana Yoga is meant for those people who get detachment and dispassion,
But for those who are attached to this world, the method prescribed is Karma Yoga,
But for those who do not have great attachment and also do not have great detachment,
And get devoted to you by the narration of stories of your greatness,
It is well known that the path prescribed for them is Bhakti Yoga. ॥ 96.4 ॥

Human beings are easily blessed with the knowledge of philosophy,
Or devotion to you depending on the good deeds that they do,
And so Oh God, people who live in heaven or in hell.
Are very desirous of being born as human beings,
For in the human body which is like a ship to cross the life,
The souls enter due to their luck, and make their Guru as the captain of the ship,
And you God become the favorable wind and help them cross the sea of life. ॥ 96.5 ॥

Those who wish to adopt the path of Jnana adopt the study of Upanishads,
And also the meemamsa scriptures search for Brahmam that is invisible,
Which is very difficult and get salvation after passing through several births,
And Karma Yoga stands far, far away from the goal of salvation,
But this Bhakti yoga is sweet to the mind from the very beginning,
And the path that leads to you very speedily and oh God,
And let this Bhakti Yoga flourish within me. ॥ 96.6 ॥

Sage Vyasa says that an attempt at Jnana yoga without devotion is a waste,
But the one who learns about the supreme soul from the teacher,
And attains steadfast devotion to you, gets salvation in his palm,
But due to instability of mind, the accusation that it is difficult to follow,
The path of devotion applies equally to the path of Jnana also,
And it is relatively easy to master the technique of meditation,
Due to your mercy as well as constant practice by the devotee. ॥ 96.7 ॥

Oh Lord of the universe, To me who does not have an interest,
In the very difficult process of Yaga but has an interest in,
Hearing the stories of your praise and being not capable of,
Sacrificing home, children and also friends due to attachment,
I would concentrate my mind on you with the firm belief,
Again and again, but serving the passions aware that it is bad,
And follow the path of devotion, for if you live in my heart,
All the attraction towards craving of pleasures would die. ॥ 96.8 ॥

Once there was a Brahmin who when he lost all his hard-earned wealth,
Became one with a mind full of the dirt of anger and hatred,
And consequently was shunned by the society at large,
And told like this, “ The reason for my sorrow is not,
Outsiders, time, action or effect of planets like Sun,
But I am sure my mind is the reason for it and that mind does all actions,
Insinuating the capacity of action as well as consumption on the soul,”
And then he became extremely serene and attained you easily,
Oh Lord please also bless me with that type of serenity. ॥ 96.9 ॥

Once upon a time, there was a king called Pururuvas who was infatuated,
With a celestial lady called Urvasi and after serving her for a long time,
Attained detachment and concluded that the carnal pleasures are insignificant,
And again and again, sang about this conclusion of his and later
Became full, by earning devotion to you and also divinely happy and attained salvation,
And oh Lord of Guruvayur ., please make me detached of minor pleasures,
And also make me your great devotee and alas the problem standing in my way,
In the attainment of this are my diseases and so destroy all my illnesses. ॥ 96.10 ॥
