Sri Hayagriva Stothram – 25

Sri Lakshmi Hayagreevar - Adi Keshava Perumal Koil, Arani
Sri Lakshmi Hayagreevar - Adi Keshava Perumal Koil, Arani


Oh Lord HayagrIvA! In Your lower right hand (embracing MahA Lakshmi), You adorn a book (pusthakam). The reddish hue of Your left palm is spreading like jaathi pavazham (coral bead assembly) brought out from the depths of the ocean of Jn~Anam. AdiyEn reflects always on the power and glory of this left hand, which blesses Your upAsakAs with all desired boons.

The red halo of the pusthakam-holding left hand reminds Swamy Desikan of the radiance of a cluster of quality corals (semm-PavaLam) harvested from the deep ocean of Jn~Anam.

The red halo seen emanating from the left hand reminds Swamy Desikan of AruNOdhayam (Jn~AnOdhyam) coming to the rescue of those, who sought the feet of Lord HayagrIvan as refuge. AruNOpanishad (AruNamEva PrathibhAdhyathi) and Soorya NamaskAra manthrams hailing the Soorya-NaarAyaNa SvarUpa Sri HayagrIvan are to be associated with the red halo associated with the pusthakamholding left (vaama Hastham) that is uniquely capable (dakshiNam) of removing the Aj~nAnam of upasakAs.

From SlOkams 26-29, Swamy Desikan enjoys the integrated essence of the beauty (samudhAya ShObhai) of the Lord, who shines in front of him as a just-blossomed white Lotus and prays to Him for the conferral of boons of Veda Vaak (Sarasvathi), which will help him defeat the disputants from other avaidhika and kudhrushti mathams and establish the glory of Bhagavath RaamAnuja SiddhAntham. Swamy Desikan appeals to the Lord to enthrone Himself on the tip of his tongue during these intricate vaadhams with disputants.
