Description
About the Author

Shri K.R. Vaidanathan, a retired senior commercial officer Central Railway is well known to readers through his earlier works – Sri Krishna, the Lord of Guruvayur, Pilgrimage to Sobari and Temples and Legends of Kerala, published by the Bhavan.

For the past two decades, Sri Guruvayurappan Sankeerthana Trust, Guruvayur has been publishing in its mostly, real experiences of devotees in Malayalam. These make inspiring reading but catered only to Malayalam Knowing devotees.

In the present work, Shri Vaidyanathan has attempted to render over hundred stories in English to cater to a wide public.

 

Preface

The glory of the Lord of Guruvayur or Guruvayurappan, as the deity is popularly known, has spread far and wide as the God who answers the prayers of his devotees.

The Lord said to Arjuna in the Gita: "I am responsible for the welfare of those who remain devoted to me all the time". Thus it is that Guruvayurappan comes to the rescue of his devotees in distress and manifests his grace in infinite and inscrutable ways.

Those who have been blessed by the Lord range from saints and savants like Meppathur Narayana Bhattatiri, the author of the famous "Narayaneeyam" and Poontanam Nambudiri of Jnanappana (Song of wisdom) fame to ordinary mortals who not only find an answer to the problems of day to day life but also develop devotional love for the Lord.

Guruvayur has also produced several preachers of divine glory, verily transporting the listeners to a blissful firmament of devotion where one forgets the cares and sorrows of the everyday world and is attuned to the Lotus feet of the Lord. Among the names of such scholar devotees who lighted the lamp of devotion in many a home was Shri Anjam Madhavan Nambudiri (1918 - 1988). He held vast audience spellbound by his inimitable discourses on Bhagavata and the glory of Namasankirtan.

Author of several books and editor of "Sri Guruvayurappan" Malayalam monthly magazine till his death, and founder of Sri Guruvayurappan Sankeerthana Trust, bhakti was the breath of his life and burden of all his discourses and writings. His seven-day Bhagavata discourse was a veritable treat to listeners.

For the past two decades, "Sri Guruvayurappan" magazine has been publishing almost every month real experiences of Bhagavan's grace narrated by readers. These make inspiring reading and have helped in shaping the faith of the devotees in the lord.

Over a hundred of these stories were brought out in a book form by Shri Anjam himself in 1984. However, these, and other miracle stories published subsequently catered only to Malayalam knowing devotees. Shri Anjam himself felt when he was alive that an English translation of these stories would cater to a wide public. Hence this attempt to bring out a select number of stories in English.

The translator is grateful to author of all the stories Published in this volume, and to Sree Guruvayurappan Sankeerthana Trust, Guruvayur for permission to bring out this volume and to Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan for Publishing it.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
