avathArikai (Introduction)

After the jIvAthmA offers himself to bhagavAn and prays for kainkaryam, bhagavAn accepts his prayer and grants him kainkaryam. Let us look at the chUrNai:

Explanatory Notes

thatha: bhagavatha: svayam Eva thatha: – after that; bhagavatha: – by bhagavAn; svayam Eva – by himself. After jIvAthmA has offered himself, bhagavAn by himself, as requested by jIvAthmA.

AthmasanjIvanEna amaryAdha Seelavatha athiprEmAnvithEnaAthma sanjIvanEna – for AthmA’s superior sustenance; amaryAdha – without any limit; Seelavatha – with his auspicious qualities; athiprEmAnvithEna – with lot of love and affection. For the sake of AthmA’s sustenance, bhagavAn, out of his unlimited auspicious qualities, and with plenty of love towards jIvAthmA.

avalOkanEna avalOkyaavalOkanEna – through his eyes; avalOkya – having seen. bhagavAn with love in his eyes glances at the jIvAthmA and blesses him.

sarvadhESa sarvakAla sarva avashtha uchitha athyantha SEsha bhAvAyasarvadhESa – in all places; sarvakAla – at all times; sarva avastha uchitha – in all states, appropriately; athyantha – without an end; SEsha bhAvAya – in the state of carrying out kainkaryam. bhagavAn blesses him to carry out kainkaryam in  all places (whether he is in the maNdapam or in the garden or at the pond etc), at all times (morning or afternoon or evening or night), in all states (whether he is sitting or standing or walking or any other such state), appropriate to that place/time/state, without any end and always with the emotional state of doing kainkaryam.

svIkrutha: anugyAthaSchasvIkrutha: – approved; anugyAthaScha – allowing.   bhagavAn first approves the jIvAthmA for carrying out kainkaryam and then permits him to do kainkaryam.

athyantha sAdhvasa vinayAvanatha:athyantha – without an end; sAdhvasa – with humility; vinayAvanatha: – bending down with modesty. On hearing from bhagavAn that he can do kainkaryam, the jIvAthmA with all humility, with head bowed in modesty, asks bhagavAn…

kim kurvANa: krutha anjaliputa:kim – what; kurvANa: – should I do? krutha – done; anjali puta: joined palms (in salutation). He asks bhagavAn as to what he should do, with joined palms.

bhagavantham upASIthabhagavanthambhagavAn; upASItha – worshipped. So saying, jIvAthmA worships bhagavAn.

We shall next see the 5th chUrNai.
