  1. SLOKA-7:
  2. FIRST PAASURAM DEALING WITH UPODHGATHADHIKARAM: THE GOOD FORTUNE
    OF KNOWING ABOUT THE MEANINGS OF THE THREE RAHASYAMS.
NARADHAMUNI EXPLAINS THE GLORY OF SRIMAN NARAYANAN TO KAYADHU,MOTHER OF PRAHLAD

MEANING:
Our AchAryAs have firmly held onto the Thiruvadis of SrIman NaarAyaNan and have
instructed us that those sacred Thiruvadis are the sole means for our Moksham. They are
totally convinced that seeking refuge at the holy feet of our Lord will result in Him accepting full responsibility for our protection from SamsAric afflictions and the granting of Moksha Sukham. Our AchAryas out of their infinite compassion for us have decided to banish our ever-growing aj~nAnam and have revealed to us the profound inner meanings of the three rahasyams. We in turn are delighted to reflect always upon these rahasyams and their esoteric meanings in this Karma bhUmi and feel blessed.
The key words in this Paasuram are: “tahavu udayAr-Odhiya mUnRin uLLam ingE nALum
uhakka namakku Ohr vidhi”. “tahavu udayAr” are the compassionate AchAryAs.
“Odhiya mUnRin uLLam” stands for the meanings of the three rahasyams.
“inghE nALum uhakka” means that those upadEsams are for our constant enjoyment.
“namakku Ohr vidhi” means that it is our bhAgya VisEsham to reflect on these upadEsams
by our merciful AchAryAs.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS ON UPODHGATADHIKARAM
This first chapter of SrImath Rahasya Thraya Saaram is about the blessings of SadAchAryas deeply conversant in arTa panchakam to us. The AchAryAs save the baddha jeevans from the horrors of drowning in the fierce and fast moving river of their Karmaas through the development of Tatthva Jn~Anams, which leads to their upliftment. The infinite mercy of the SadAchAryAs saves thus the jeevans bound until then in the strong bonds of their karmAs.

PARIKSHIT ,SAVED BY SRI KRISHNA (FROM ASHWATHAMA’S BRAHMASTRA), IN THE WOMB OF HIS MOTHER UTTARA

There are six reasons cited for gaining the grace of SadAchAryAs:
(1) The help of our Lord/EmperumAn as an anukoolan (facilitator)
(2) accidental good fortune / unplanned sukrutham
(3) the KatAksham of EmperumAn at the womb itself/Jaayamaana KatAksham of SrIman
NaarAyaNan.
(4) Not developing enmity to SarvEswaran.
(5) Staying in a state of anticipation of receiving His anugraham.
(6) Sathsangham with SaathvikAs (Righteous ones) and sambhAshaNam (Conversations )
with them.

SLOKA-8:

  1. THE SECOND PAASURAM ON UPODHGATADHIKARAM: THERE IS NO MORE GARBHA
    VAASAM AFTER ACHARYA KATAKSHAM

MEANING:
Our PirAtti arising from the milky ocean chose Her Lord’s chest as her permanent place of
residence. Similarly, the KousthubhA gem taking birth from the same milky ocean reached
the Lord’s chest and has become His cherished jewelry. We, the Jeevans having the
nithyasoori with Kousthubham as His Sareeram as our abhimAna dEvathai, have the
acquired the privilege to perform eternal service (nithya kaimkaryam) to our Lord. Inspite of this distinction, we get pummeled in the Karma pravAham (fast flowing river of Karma) and lose the opportunity to perform our nithya kaimakryam to Him. Our most merciful AchAryAs competent in the jn~Anam about the esoteric meanings of the three rahasyams and arTa panchakam performed upadEsams to us on these rahasyams to lift us up from the turmoil of our karmAs. There is no more worry for us after this magnanimous help from our SadAchAryAs.
The key passage of this Paasuram is: “Kadu vinai aaRRil vizhunthu ozhuhAthu aruvudan
aindhu aRivAr aruL seyya amainthanar”. This is a celebration of the matchless upakAram of our AchAryAs.
