Adaikkalapathu: Pasuram 8


Thiruvahindrapuram Swami Desikan Jyestabhishekam And Vasanthotsavam Satrumurai5



adiyEn repeatedly reflects on the meaning of the Lord’s charama slOkam and the assurances given by Him there to the one, who has performed prapatthi. adiyEn reminds myself that as a Prapannan, that I must have unshakable faith in the assured fruits of my prapatthi.

adiyEn prays for the further enhancement of my bhakthi and Jnaanam. adiyEn shall never forget my utter servitude to You and You alone. I shall stay in a happy and tranquil mood with the knowledge of the essence of the rahasyaarthaas. adiyEn will bear my days on the earth without agitation over the delay in realizing moksham. adiyEn will forget the sorrows of Samsaaram that is inevitable during the days on this earth after performing my prapatthi at Your Sacred Feet. This would be the way, adiyEn will spend my post-prapatthi life.


Swamy Desikan sums up his vows after Prapatthi here. He says that He will not forget the utterances of the Lord (Charama slOkam) at the battle field of Kuru KshEthra (AruLaaLar vaachakangaL maRavEn). His post-prapatthi state of being is also summed up here :

  1. thiNmay kuRayAmai — without dimunition of his mahaa viswaasam
  2. niRaikai — To be filled with jnaanam
  3. thee vinayAl uNamai maRavAmai — not forgetting the truth due to paapams
  4. uLa mathiyil uhakkai — Being joyous over the acquired thatthva thraya jnaanam from the Achaaryas
  5. thamai kazhiyAmai — not losing the feeling of kaarpaNyam
  6. tharikkai — Holding on as a dhruptha prapannan until moksha siddhi results at the end of allotted life
  7. thaNikai — Being oblivious of samsaaric thaapams .

For staying in this state of equilibrium during the post-prapatthi period, adiyEn would not forget the Lord’s assurances housed in the charama SlOkam (aruLaaLar vaachakangaL maRavEn).
