Shriman Narayaneeyam


About the Website

This is a venture to give the Sanskrit word meanings in the order of the Shlokas, and not in अन्वय form. For this the two references are:
1) Shriman Narayaneeyam by Shri S. N. Sastri, published by CCMT, Mumbai
2) Narayaneeyam - translated by Swami Tapasyananda, published by Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai

The need for this was voiced by a ladies study group, where Late Shri C. S. Nair was teaching Narayaneeyam. I invite readers to point out any mistakes, shortcomings or suggestions.

With deep humbleness and high gratitude, I dedicate this small endeavour to Late Shri N. S. Venkatakrishnan, who introduced me to this great stotra. I also extend my homage to Late Shri C. S. Nair, who, with great confidence entrusted this work to me. My salutations to both of them and my parents.

On the 2nd of November, 2019, in New Delhi, at Chinmaya Ranjana, the Chinmaya mission at Chitteranjana Park, by the grace and blessings of Shri Hari Naaraayana, I happened to meet Smt. V. Meenaakshi, a brilliant scholar of Sanskrit, a Phd holder in Sanskrit Literature. She was teaching the divine stotra 'Shriman Naaraayaneeyam' to a small group of elderly people. I was amazed how well she was doing it! I felt really blessed, when she later gifted me a pen drive containing her chanting of the Stotra. I am very happy to say that with her permission, these are also available on this website, before the text of each Dashaka. I hope this will help learners further. My heart felt thanks to Smt. V Meenaakshi.
