Swami Desikan’s Abhidsitavam: Sloka-14


24 November 2021, Plava varusha, Karthikai -08, Wednesday ;


Oh Lord of Thiruvarangam! Wise people have classified Svarga lOkam and naraka lOkam as desirable and undesirable locations respectively to reside. Similarly, they have labeled Krutha Yugam as the golden yugam to live and Kali Yugam as the undesirable Yugam to be born in to. If one analyses deeply, svargam, Narakam, Krutha and Kali Yugams –all of them–create inauspiciousness in their own (different) ways and cause fear (Bheethi) to us. This fact makes me filled with anxiety and bheethi. Oh Lord! You must take pity on adiyEn and protect me thru abhaya pradhAnam. If you do not decide to do so, adiyEn can not think of anyone to play this role. Also, there is no one more qualified than adiyEn to be the object of your dayaa. Therefore, out of your matchless compassion, Rangaa, You should protect adiyEn and chase away all of my fears.

Swamy Desikan describes himself as “Prachura Saadhvasan”, one who is frightened about the present and future. Swamy Desikan states that all that which have been grouped as auspicious or inauspicious based on dEsam and Kaalam (subha-asubha vikalpithA: dEsa kaala aadhaya:) generate ultimately fear only in their own ways (mukha bhEdhata: bhaya nidhAnmEva bhavanthy). Swamy Desikan prays for Lord RanganAthan’s unparalleled karuNai to intervene in his most deserving case. Swamy convincingly states his case for the Lord’s grace: “ittham anukampithA Ka? Thvath anukampaneeyasccha Ka:?” Who is there except you to shower such grace? Who is more fit than me to be the recipient of that (Your) grace? With such a precision logic of Swamy Desikan, Lord RanganAthan had no choice except to intervene and answer Swamy’s prayer in the affirmative.
