Jai Sriman Narayana !!
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Daksha, son of one of the Prachethas was a fervent devotee of you, underwent austerities and worshipped you to obtain progeny. You have appeared before him in your mesmerizing form, with eight hands and offered him a boon, along with a bride Asikni.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Daksha’s eleven thousands sons were sincerely followed the path of liberation with utmost devotion after receiving divine instruction from Maharishi Narada. Daksha was deeply distressed at the turn of events and cursed Maharishi Narada that he would not have any permanent place to stay, but Maharishi Narada, foremost devotee of you treated the curse of Daksha as blessing in disguise.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Daksha multiplied his clan through his sixty daughters. One of his great grandsons Vishwaroopa assisted Lord Indra to win the battle against the demons. Lord Indra received protection and triumph over the demons by learning the sacred hymns praising the glories of you (Narayana Kavacham) from Vishwaroopa. Oh! Deva, those glorious verses could bring triumph over all.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, There was a province Shoorasena was ruled by King Chithrakethu, he was desirous of getting progeny; eventually the couple attained a child by the blessings of Sage Angiras. Unfortunately, the child of King Chithrakethu was killed by his other wives out of jealousy. King Chithrakethu was inconsolable and was in a miserable state due to the power of delusion.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, compassionate Sage Narada and Maharishi Angiras took King Chithrakethu to the soul of his deceased son. The soul answered ‘Whose son am I?” These words dispelled the delusion of King Chithrakethu. Shortly, Maharishi Narada and Sage Angiras instructed the methods of worship of you to King Chithrakethu.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, King Chithrakethu received sacred hymns from Maharishi Narada and continued strict austerities propitiating you as Lord Adishesha, with the severe austerities in seven days he became the chief of the Vidhyadharas, but he was dissatisfied. King Chithrakethu continued your worship with severe austerities and same enthusiasm.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, You have pleased at the devotion of King Chithrakethu and revealed your glorious form as Lord Adishesha, with thousands of hoods which are white like lotus stalk surrounded by the Siddhas eulogized your glories in sacred hymns. Oh! Sahasrasheersha, you have imparted the knowledge of Athma Thathvam/ knowledge of self to King Chithrakethu and vanished from his sight.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Your passionate devotee Chithrakethu lived many years happily in all the worlds without any bondage. He led the clan of attractive Vidhyadhari’s without any intense attachment, singing and praising the glories and excellence of you at his heart’s content.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, once Chithrakethu went to Mount Kailash prompted by you, to get rid of all that sensuous attachment remained in him. There he saw Lord Shankara, slayer of Kamadeva sitting in the assembly of Sages with his consort; Goddess Uma who was seated on his lap. Chithrakethu ridiculed at Lord Shankara, eventually he was cursed by Goddess Uma.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Chithrakethu was calm, he did not ask for any relief from the curse. Afterwards, he was born as Vruththasura. Due to the previous good deeds Vruththasura while battling with Lord Indra, imparted the knowledge of self to him and thereby removed the delusion of even his army, ultimately attained your abode.
Oh! Supreme Lord Guruvayurappa, Dithi , mother of demons worshipped you to have a son who could kill Lord Indra, instead she gave birth to Maruths who became close associate of Lord Indra. Oh! Supreme Lord, veneration of you by even an evil minded person would attain favorable reward. Oh! Pavanalayesha, I earnestly pray to protect us.
