Abhidistavam: Sloka-5




GuNEsa! = Oh Lord, who is the abode of all KalyANa guNams!

sva-dhee-niyatha chEthana achEthanam Bhavantham = Of You, who holds together thesentients and insentients of Your LeelA VibhUthi with Your mighty sankalpam

 ya: iha panAyathi = whoever eulogizes You of this Vaibhavam here

(ya: iha) namasyathy samrathi vakthi paryEthi vaa = whoever prostrates before You or meditates about Your kalyANa guNams or recites Your divine names or performs PradakshiNams at Your divine abodes

 ya: GopAyithu: Tava kamapi guNam vEtthi vaa = whoever attempts to comprehend even one auspicious guNam of Yours (such as Souseelyam, SouhArtham, Vaathsalyam, Maarjavam

Tasya kadhAchana bhayam na syAth= for him, there will never ever be any fears.

Tasya kudascchana kvachana bhayam na syAth = For Him, there will be no fear from anywhere or at any time.

(EXTENDED MEANING): Oh Lord of Srirangam filled with all auspicious guNams! This universe filled with ChEtanams and achEtanams are bound together by your sankalpam and follow your commands. Any one who praises You of this infinite majesty and grace with His tongue or prostrates before You with his body or meditates on You with his mind or performs naama sankeerthanam of Your thousand names or circumambulates around your temple praakArams or delves in depth about any one of Your KalyANa guNams is blessed indeed! For such a person performing anyone of the above acts will not experience fear (bheethi) from anywhere at any time.


“Ya: Bhavantham panAyathi namasyathi smarathi vakthi paryEthi vaa, tasya kadAchana kuthascchana kvachana bhayam na syAth” is the key message. Those who seek refuge in You, eulogizes You, prostrates before You, thinks of You, recites Your sacred names do not experience any fears at any place or time ever. You are Sarva Phala pradhan (yielder of all phalans), Sarva bhaya nivartakan (remover of all kinds of fears) abhimukhan (awaiting to bless His bhakthAs), sthuthyAdhi sulabhOpAyan (ease of access to those who eulogize You). Sruthi vaakyams are: “Aanandham BrahamaNO vidhvAn na BhibhEthi kuthascchana; na BhibhEthi kadhAchana”. Swamy Desikan uses these Sruthi PramANams verbatim and adds kvachana for further emphasis.
