Recently I was going through a series of “challenges” in life. Quite naturally I was forced to think as to how on earth others manage when they face challenges in life.
As my focus prior to the “challenges” was Srimad Bhagwadpada Adi Sankaracharya, I was wondering as to what he would have done. The answer was there right for me in the origin of his yet another legendary flow of Bhakti in Sanskrit language this time on Lord Kartikeya, the son of Lord Siva – “Subramanya Bhujangam”
Tamil Scholars such as Sri. A.V.R. Krishnaswamy have already written in Tamil all the Verses. Yet as a novice I wanted to venture and seek the Blessings of Lord Subramanya.
I have started studying the Slokas and will post my blogs as and when I am confident of my work.
Here is the first verse in praise of Lord Ganesh.
सदा बालरूपाऽपि विघ्नाद्रिहन्त्री
महादन्तिवक्त्राऽपि पञ्चास्यमान्या ।
विधीन्द्रादिमृग्या गणेशाभिधा मे
विधत्तां श्रियं काऽपि कल्याणमूर्तिः ॥१॥
Sadaa Baala-Ruupa-Api Vighna-Adri-Hantrii
Mahaa-Danti-Vaktra-Api Pan.caasya-Maanyaa |
Vidhi-Indra-[A]adi-Mrgyaa Gannesha-Abhidhaa Me
Vidhattaam Shriyam Kaa-Api Kalyaanna-Muurtih
என்றும் பாலக உருவோனே, எனினும்
மாமலை இடர்தனை பொடி செய்வோனே
கப்பிய கரிமுக வேளோனே, உன்னை
முப்புரமெரி முதலோன் மதித்தானே
நான்முகன் இந்திரன் மதி கணேசனே – எனக்கு
மங்களம் நிறை வடிவுடன் காட்சி கொடுப்பாயே
