dhyana mulem guror moorthi

pooja mulem guropathem

manthra mulem guror vakyem

moksha mulem guro kripa

The root of meditation is the Guru’s form.

The root of worship is the Guru’s feet.

The root of mantra is the Guru’s word.

The root of liberation is the Guru’s grace.

aganda mandalakaram

vypthem yena characharam

thathpathem dershithem yena

thasmy sree guru va nama

Salutations to the Guru,

by whose grace the One Infinite Reality

that pervades all of manifestation is revealed.

ajnana thimiranthasiya

jhnajhna shalakaya

chakshru oonmilidhem yena

thasmayy sree guru ve namaha

Not having knowledge is like cateract.

Knowledge is like the ‘kajal’

Guru is that doctor who gives that kajal

gurur brahma gurur vishnu

gurur devo maheshwra

guru sakshath para brahma

thasmy sree guru ve namaha

Guru is that which dispels the darkness

Guru is Brahma the Creator.

Guru is Vishnu the Preserver.

Guru is Shiva the Transformer.

Guru is the Supreme Being manifest in human form.

To that Supreme Divine Teacher,

I offer my heartfelt salutations,

reverence and endless gratitude.

gurave sarvalokanaam

bhishaje bavarohinam
nithaye sarva vidhyanaam

dhakshina murthaye namaha
