SLOKA-32

32. PRABHAVAVYAYASTADHIKARAM: LIMITS DESCRIBED BY SAASTRAMS FOR THE GLORIES OF PRAPANNAN AND THE SAGE’S REACTION TO THOSE BOUNDARIES

MEANING:  Propelled by His abundant grace, our Lord is waiting to bless the PrapannAs with KalyANa guNams identical to His own and is eager to transform these prapanna jeevans into Muktha jeevans. This most merciful Lord took KrishNAvathAram to bless us with the Charama slOkam for our upliftment. Sages like VyAsa comprehended fully the inner meanings of this Charama slOkam of the Lord. They will not hence agree to the diminution of the Mahimai of Prapannan as established by the VedAnthams. Our AchAryAs instructed us on these truisms about the glories of Prapatthi.

The key words of this Paasuram are: “Mey aruL Vitthahan urayin ahavaai aaraNa neethi neRi kulaithal uhavAr” (Our Lord with unfailing krupA has blessed us with Charama slOkam, where He assures us with His unfailing promise. Our AchAryAs, who clearly understand the inner meanings of Charama slOkam of the Lord will not be party to any diminution of the nyAya mArgam rooted in VedAs).

SLOKA-33

33. THIS PAASURAM DEALS WITH THE 26TH CHAPTER OF SRTS: PRABHAVA RAKSHADHIKARAM. THIS CHAPTER IS IN DEFENSE OF THE TRUE GLORIES OF PRAPATTHI WITHOUT EXAGGERATIONS OR UNDERSTEMENTS

MEANING: The VedAnthams, which are rooted in Sathyam (truth and righteousness), assert that the Lord’s glories are limitless. Those that have performed Prapatthi at the Lord’s feet may be born in lower jaathis/kulams. Inspite of birth in a lower jAthi, the PrapannAs are blessed to have the Lord’s undiminished love (abhimAnam) and qualify them totally for gaining the primary phalan of Moksham. Therefore, the glories of Prapatthi can not be overstated. Our AchAryAs instruct us impartially on these TatthvArTams.

The key words of this Paasuram are: “UtthamanAr kazhal paNivAr taNmai kidakka taram aLavu” (The glories of those, who perform SaraNAgathi at the sacred feet of PurushOtthaman is limitless independent of the fact that they are born in lower kulams or higher kulams).

Swamy Desikan establishes that Prapatthi has the power of destroying prArabdha KarmAs. In contrast, Bhakthi yOgam does not have this power. Therefore, Prapatthi yOgam is superior to Bhakthi yOgam. In addition to destroying sins committed before Prapatthi and accumulated in the post-prapatthi period, Prapatthi has the power to grant Moksham for those who long for it ardently to engage in the nithya kaimkaryam to the Lord at His Supreme abode. Thus  Prapatthi is superior to all other means for gaining mOksham.

The next 3 paasurams (34th to the 36th) are Paasurams of AdhikAra Sangraham dealing with the most important rahasyams of AshtAksharam (Moola Manthram), Manthra Rathnam (Dhvayam) and BhagavaAn’s own upadEsam (Charama SlOkam) for our upliftment.
