Lord Sri Vinayaka

-Always has the appearance of a child; Yet He can abolish mountains of obstacles;

-Has the face of an elephant with an enormous tusk; He is adored and respected by Lord Shiva who is five faced.

-Is devoutly sought after by Sri Bramha, Indra (King of Devas) and others; He is known as Ganesha, the Lord of the celestial warriors.

I bow to you, Lord Vinayaka, kindly bless and bestow the glory and the prosperity. Your appearance itself is auspicious.

My humble salutations to you.

Sri Sankaracharya’s humble submission

Lord Sri Subramanya,

I have the knowledge of neither words nor their meanings;
I have the knowledge of neither poetry nor prose / verses;
However, in the crux of my soul, I do consciously see and visualize your six faces;
Only such visualization is making me utter the words from my mouth.

My humble salutations to you.

God is the essence of Vedas and holy scripts

मयूराधिरूढं महावाक्यगूढं

Lord Sri Subramanya

-is mounted on the peacock, His vahan; It represents the core meaning of the maha vakyas, the holy scripts;
-has the form which steals the hearts; it exists with the sacred heart of spiritual consciousness; and
-is the great God of the Devas and depicts the essence of Vedas.

I sincerely and ardently worship the son of Sri Maha Deva, who is Lord Shiva. He is the protector of the world.

Reason behind the sanctum at the sea shore*

Lord Sri Subramanya,

You prevail as the Supreme God in the sea shore. You staying there seems to suggest that to reach you and surrender to you in your presence, the people should truly cross the ocean of family life (samsara sagara).

I shall always be in praise of you, you are the pious son of Goddess Parvathi Devi.

Lord Sri Subramanya,

By displaying the rows and rows of waves on the sea, You proclaim that that the miseries and fears of your devotees shall vanish in Your presence similar to the waves being consumed by the ocean.

Lord Sri Subramanya,

You stay in the Sugandha hill and appear to proclaim that climbing up and ascending the hill to have your darshan and surrender to you is equal to climbing up the silver-colored Mount Kailash to attain self-liberation.

Lord Shanmukha, the six faced God, I shall always have delight thinking about you.

Lord Sri Subramanya,

Sugandha Hill exists on the shores of the immense ocean and the said ocean washes away the sins of your ardent devotees. The Hill is the most preferred place by the great Sages to do the penance. You are at the Hill to annihilate the miseries and worries of your devout devotees.

I revere you, my God, you are dazzling and you prevail in the cave of my heart.

You are dressed up with divine garments which dazzle with the glitter of pure gold; You have adorned a beautiful girdle with tiny tinkling bells around your waist. You are wearing a golden silk cloth which is as bright as lightning.

I shall always meditate on your waist, Sri Skanda, you guide my heart.

Greatness of Lord’s chest

Lord Sri Subramanya,

You have embraced the daughter of the Pulinda Tribal (Sri Valli Devi who did tapas for you for long) and because of the hugging, the saffron of Sri Valli’s upper cloth got smeared on you. Your chest had reddish hue which symbolizes your attachment to the devotees.

You are the enemy of Tarakasur.

Please shower me with the same love and affection you have given to Sri Valli. You are the source of happiness for your devotees.

Generosity of the Lord’s arms

Lord Sri Subramanya,

Your mighty arms had meted out punishment to Sri Brahma; Your arms had given support to the universe as if such supporting was a divine sport; Your arms had turned away the elephant (when you were courting Sri Valli); Your arms are Kaala Danda, the death wand to those who dare to defy you; Your arms had destroyed the innumerable enemies of Indra; Your arms are the ones which protect the world.

I shall always take shelter in your powerful arms; You are protecting the world.

jaya-ananda sinDho jaya-asheSha banDho
jaya thvam sadhaa mukthi-dhaanae sha-soonoa

Lord Sri Subramanya, I hail victory to You, the inner blissful conscience
-whose abode is boundless;
-whose internal and external glory are omnipresent;
-whose form is the blissfulness personified;
-who is the ocean of blissfulness;
-whose relationship is boundless in love; and
-who is the progeny of Lord Shiva who grants liberation.

I bow to you with ardent devotion.

भुजङ्गाख्यवृत्तेन क्ऌप्तं स्तवं यः
पठेद्भक्ति युक्तो गुहं संप्रणम्य
स पुत्रान्कलत्रं धनं दीर्घमायुः
लभेत्स्कन्दसायुज्यमन्ते नरः सः (33)

bhujangga-akhya-vruththena klaptham sthavam yah
paTaed-Bhakthi-yuktho guham sampraNamya
sa puthraan-kalathram dhanam deergham-aayuh
labheth-skandha-aaayujyam-anthe narah sah

Lord Sri Subramanya, my humble salutations to you.

Whomsoever, with ardent devotion to Sri Guha, reads and recites this slokam which is composed as per the aspects of the snake’s movements shall be blessed and bestowed with good spouse, progeny, wealth, long life and moksha which means being absorbed by the divine presence of Sri Skanda.

इति श्री सुब्रह्मण्य भुजङ्गम् सम्पूर्णम्
Iti Sri SubramaNya Bhujangam SampoorNam.
Sri Subramanya Bhujangam is completed.

Spread God's Love
