bye.gif Hi all.....Well, I recently recieved a request from one of the HF members....to post Slokas on the Spirituality thread......So I thought it would be a good idea to get started......

Well, let me point out that by SLOKAS, here, I mean....the small 4-lined....8-lined verses in praise of various Gods/Goddesses......The long...Big ones....with many stanzas will be referred to as "STOTRAS" (Atleast as far as this thread is concerned..wink2.gif) Most of the Slokas and Stotras in hinduism are Sanskrit based, though there are also Slokas in other Indian languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Tamil etc.

So...starting off on this thread...All of you are welcome to add your valuable inputs....Later on, if the thread starts expanding, we can create seperate thread for different Gods etc...smile1.gifsmile1.gifsmile1.gif

Wow!!! Nimmi-the linguist!!! smile1.gifwink2.gif Nice to know that I started off with your IshtaDevta.....smile1.gif Well, so you studied Sanskrit as your second language??? Woww!!! That's really great.......Well, I had studied Sanskrit (the basics) for the last three years of my schooling....but we didn't have "Slokas" in the syllabus......it was more of Poetry-based on diff. topics....philosophy......riddles etc. Very less of "Slokas" within the lessons......smile1.gif Do teach me some good Sanskrit.......Start off with putting up your slokas!!! smile1.gifsmile.gif

One more :

Gajananam Bhutagaanadi Sevitam
O elephant faced who is served by the company of Bhootas and Ganas (of Shiva)
Kapittha Jambu Phala Saara Bhakshitam
One who takes the Kapitha and Jambu fruits
Uma Sutam Shokavinaasha Kaaranam
Son of Uma and One who is reason to destroy the sorrows
Namaami Vigneshvara Paada Pankajam
We prostrate the lotus feet of The Lord of Obstacles.

<literal meaning given under each sloka>


<meaning should be understood thus>
I prostrate myself before the lotus feet of Vigneshvara (Ganesha)
The son of Uma, who destroys sorrow, who is served by the angels
He who has the face of an elephant, and
who partakes of the essence of kapittha and jambu fruits.

Please correct me if I have made any mistake sad1.gif

Hey folks, let me make a BIG request here please:

Whoever uploads a shloak should also give its meaning (like Nimii is doing). Hopefully, line for line (and if necessary, the gist). Not only will that help us understand the full shloak, but also what each line means.

Is that a practical request? blab.gif

Self - belief is the most potent force.

bye.gif Continuing on the Lord Ganesha Theme......I'm attaching a wonderful Stotra on him - called "SHREE GANAPATI STOTRAM"....written by the famous Narad Muni.....from the Naarada Purana.....It contains the 12 special names (Dwaadasha naamam) of Ganapati......and reciting this sloka is said to be really
special and auspicious...And said to remove all obstacles from your path....And is said to be really beneficial for Children ("Students" of any age)-For studies; Acquiring of Wealth; begetting Children for child-less couple and Welfare and Moksha......(These 'benefits' are mentioned in the latter part of the Stotra itself......smile1.gif



SHREE GANAPATI STOTRAM

I'm attaching a file below......from the Album "VISHWA VINAAYAKA", where this Stotra has been rendered by S.P.Balasubramaniam, with three sets of Chorus - Children, Ladies and Gents respectively.....and the whole Song/Stotra in the backdrop of Symphony Orchestra music (Composed by Ajay-Atul). The album was released about 2 years ago (A TIMES MUSIC Presentation). The audio is really good quality, and the Stotra has been recited in a very CLEAR and PERFECT manner (the pronounciations etc.) and will help you learn the Stotra very quickly....Also......the music is Sooooo wonderful.....it'll grow on you....and you'ld enjoy hearing it again and again.....and will get the Stotra by-heart within no time!!! smile1.gif ALL THE BEST!!! smile1.gif thumbs-up.gif


PS:- I hope not to raise any issues of the Year of release again.....but seeing some uploads in the Classical section (Classical Fusion albums such as "Naina Pyaase" by Rashid Khan etc. - 2003 release)..I was only TOOO tempted to upload this wonderful Stotra......(Now.....if you say "Naina Pyaase" album...has songs of Amir Khusro etc.....Hence OLD creations...then.....This Stotra is written by NAARAD MUNI!!! laugh.gif wink2.gif) And I've uploaded it only to Aid you in getting the Stotra perfecty.......Hope No issues are raised again....God Forbid....if it happens....I'll have to delete the attachment...and PM it to all those who need it..... smile.gif

Meaning will be given in next post....as this has got too long....wink2.gif

There's no use in weeping,
Though we are condemned to part:
There's such a thing as keeping
A remembrance in one's heart:

The first stotra for Shree Ganesh I ever remember knowing by heart was this one. smile1.gif

Vighneshvaraaya Varadaaya Surappriyaaya
Lambodaraaya Sakalaaya Jagadwitaaya
Naagaananaaya Shrutiyagna Vibhooshitaaya
Gauri-sutaaya GaNanaatha Namo Namaste


The Destroyer of Obstacles, Bestower of Boons, Favorite of all Gods,
Big bellied, The One who does Good of the entire universe,
The one who beautifies Yagna and all Veda,
Son of Gauri (Parvati), the Leader of all Ganaa, I salute you.

Vishnu Stuti


Shaantaakaaram Bhujagashayanam Padmanaabham Suresham
Vishvaadhaaram Gagansadrasham MeghavarNam Shubhaangam
Laxmikaantam Kamalanayanam Yogibhirdhyaanagamyam
Vande Vishnu Bhavabhayaharam Sarvalokaikanaatham


Salutations to Shri Vishnu, who reclines peacefully on the bed of the serpent Sheisha, with the Lotus on His Navel. He is the Lord of celestial beings, the tabernacle of the universe. He is as immense as the firmament, His colour is that of a dark cloud; His limbs are auspicious, He is the Lord of Shri Lakshmi the one with Lotus Eyes. Object of the meditation of the sages, the one who banishes all fears of the cycle of rebirth and suffering. He is the Lord of all Worlds.


Om Sahnaa vavatu Sahnau bhunaktu
Sahviryam Karvaa vahe
Tejasvinaav adhitamastu
Maavidwishaavahe
Om shaantihi shaantihi shaantihi


Let us live together, Let us be nourished together
Let us be able to do great deeds together
Let us be brilliant together in our study
Let us be loving
Peace, peace, peace

Two more for Shiv bhagwan.


Sauraashtrey Somanaatham Cha Shreeshailey Mallikaarjunam
Ujjainyaam Mahaakaalam Omkaaram Malleshwaram
Parallyaam Vaidhyanaatham Cha Daakinyaam Bhimshankaram
Setu bandhe tu Raamesham Naagesham Dwaarikaavane
Varansyaam tu Vishwesham Trayambakam Gautami taTey
Himaalaye tu Kedaaram Dhushmesham cha Shivaalaye
Eytaani Jyotirlingaani Saayam Praataha Pathennaraha
Saptra janmam kritam paapam SmaraNey na Vinashyati


This one is about the 12 Jyotirlinga in India.


Om Vande Devam/Shambhu Umaapatim Surgurum Vande Jagad KaaraNam
Vande Pannag BhushaNam Mrigadharam Vande Pashunaam Patim
Vande Surya Shashaak Vahninayanam Vande Mukundapriyam
Vande Bhakta Janaashrayan Chavardham Vande Shivam Shankaram


Found this translation online. I think its well translated.

vandE=hail; shambhU=shiva; umA=pArvatI; patim=husband; sura=divine dEva; gurum=guru; jagat=world; kAraNam=cause; pannaga=cobra; bhUShaNam=jewelery, ornament; mRiga=animal, deer; dharam=bearing; pashUnAm=of animals; patim=protector; sUrya=sun; shashAGka=moon; vahni=fire; nayanam=eyed; mukunda=viShNu; priyam=beloved; bhakta=devotee; jana=people; Ashrayam=refuge; varadam=boon giver; shivam=auspicious; shaGkaram=shiva;

praise to shambhU; husband of umA; guru of the dEva; hail, the cause of the universe [as the transformer, shiva causes the absorption of the universe for the recreation]; praise to the one whose oranaments are the gemstone bearing cobras; one who bears the animals; praise to the protector of animals; praise one whose eyes are the sun, moon and fire; praise to the one dear to viShNu; and praise to the refuge of devotees; to the giver of boons; praise to the auspicious shaGkara||
