Meaning in Tamil

Meaning in English

Brahman is akin to the mighty ocean, changeless, ever full with the nature of unlimited nectarine bliss. Like many pearls in the ocean, innumerable liberated souls are absorbed in this Brahmic bliss and hence it is extremely resplendent. Just like the waves rise in the ocean, it is said that Shuddha Satwa form has risen from the Brahman. You, here in Guruvayur is that Satwa form. Hence it is appropriate to call Lord Guruvayurappan as Poorna Avataar (Nishkalaa) even though some may argue that if You have a form then you are Ansha Avataar (Sakalaa).
