COMMENTARY

Guru paadaambuyam dhyaayet guroranyam na bhavayet….(Prapanchasaaram)

this pramanam states we shoud brood over the guru paadam and never think of anything else.  It is surprising to drown in one ocean and cross another. But the magnificent feet of Acharya makes it feasible.

Bhagavataa aatmeeyam srimad paadaaravinda yugalam sirasi krtam dhyaatvaa amrta saagaraantar nimagna sarvaavayas sukhamaaseet says sri Ramanuja in Sri Vaikuntha Gadya=what he said about the Lord, here he says about his Acharya.
