Prabhandam & Slokas

Mukunda Maala – Introduction

This stotram is a celebration of our Siddhaantham, Saranagati, prayer for unceasing remembrance of the Lord’s holy feet at all times and places, ParatatvaNirnayam, exhortation to Chetanas to offer Prapatti at the holy feet of the most merciful Lord, who has Sri Devi as His inseparable companion. Hence, it is a summation of all the profound principles of our Sri Sampradhaayam.

Regarding the celebration of the NaamAs of the Lord, Vishnu Sahasra Naamam points us the secret behind the names of the Lord. It Says “Yasya Naamaani Gownaani”. It reveals that His names are Gaunaas (i-e) His names are nothing but a sound Form of His Gunaas (attributes). The Lord, who is the abode of infinite attributes, has therefore Infinite Naamaas. By celebrating these names, one grows one’s Bhakti and enters the “Rama Bhakti Saamrajyam”. Kulasekhara, as one of the greatest Rama Bhakthas followed Naama Siddhaantham and made his city resonant with the shouts of Sriranga Yaatra to remind himself and others about the Lord of Ishvaaku Kulam resting at Srirangam in Kali Yugam.

This Yugam is an age of emotion and in this age, one can be saved only through the  easy  route  of  Bhakti  or  dedicated  devotion  to  the  Divya  Dampathis through Raaganga    Bhakti (emotional    attachment)    through    Naama Sankeertanam and Archana with Nama Kusumaas.
