Seventy eight years back my parents gave me to Guruvayurappan(There is a system , where parents leave the child in the temple and walk back and later some one goes and buys back the child back from the temple-Nada Thallal in Malayalam) and today I am putting before a stotra addressed to the lord sent by a friend of mine for translation. Guruvayurappa , ende Guruvayurappa .I am also giving a very rare painting of Lord Guruvayurappan which we worship in our home .
Guruvayurappa Namaskaram (Tamil Bhajan)
(A friend of mine called A.V.Sundaram who lives in Chembur , Mumbai went through the papers left by his uncle who has attained the lotus feet of Guruvayurappan and located this prayer written down by him. He has send it to me along with several other divine material for translating them in to english . I am giving the photo of the manuscript of the stotra written by uncle of my friend Sundaram With tears of devotion to my Guruvayurappan for giving a chance to serve his feet , I did it just now . Ende Kochu Guruvayurappa , I am saluting you.)
