Deep down inside me, there has always been a desire to study Narayaneeyam. Along with this desire, comes the fear of the unknown – 1000 plus verses in Sanskrit, my poor/no knowledge of Sanskrit and my abysmal and amateurish level of spirituality. So I keep dithering and didn’t do anything towards this during the pandemic year.
My experiments with my blogs in 2020 has now given me the courage to venture. I am browsing the topic and collecting reference materials. I have joined classes at Vyoma’s sanskritfromhome.in and have words of encouragement from my teacher/Guru Sri. Sankararama Sharma. I am listening to the discourses by learned scholars.
We have a saying in Tamil “தை பிறந்தால் வழி பிறக்கும்” ( we will find a way when we enter the Tamil month of Thai – when the Sun starts its northern journey).
So here I am diving into the ocean of bliss without knowing swimming, having confidence that the Lord will help me and show the way in my long and deep journey.
While the verse by verse work will commence beginning this Friday, the full first Dasakam in AV format will be posted on Mahara Sankaranthi day in my YouTube channel “prabhu53”. The work on the rest of the 99 Dasakams will be later on as per the dictations of Lord Guruvayurappan.
Please feel free to let me know the errors (hopefully not blunders) that I may have committed.
