Meaning and Comments:

Oh LakshmI nArAyaNA! You have instructed the people that they should perform different yAgams and yaj~nams to gain the phalans of interest to them. VaidikAs have performed many  yaj~nams here at your agrahAram following that upadeSam of Yours. Yaj~nam is the embodiment of NaarAyaNan (yaj~no hi nArAyaNa nAma rUpa). Therefore, aDiyEn considers that You are resplendent here with the name of LakshmInArAyaNan. The VishNu sahasra nAmams relating to yaj~na praise the Lord’s role as yaj~napati and yaj~na bhuk (the enjoyer of the havis offered in the yaj~nam). He is the yaj~na guhyan or the secret of the sacrifice. Though the Lord does not need anything, He accepts all the offerings made in the yaj~nam and enjoys them. He feels satisfied and also satisfies those who perform the yaj~nams. This secret is understood only by the wise. This is the secret of the yaj~nam.
