Krishna Krishna Krishna Endu Muru Bari Neneyero-Vyasarajaru

ಕ್ರಿಶ್ಣ ಕ್ರಿಶ್ಣ ಕ್ರಿಶ್ಣ ಎ೦ದು ಮುರು ಬಾರಿ ನೆನೆಯಿರೋ
ಸ೦ತುಷ್ಟನಾಗಿ ಮುಕುಥಿ ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಮಿಕ್ಕ ಬಾರ ಹೊರುವನೋ

krishna krishna krishna endu muru bAri neneyero
saMtushtanAgi mukuthi koTTu mikka bAra horuvano

Sri Vyasarajaru says that if one says "Krishna " three times, then Paramatma will be pleased with him and showers his grace on him . But one may say it three times and we have the experience that no such thing happens. This has to be understood more deeply. Here muru bari means in the three states of Jagara, Swapna and Suhupthi one should have his smarana continuously. That is possible only when one is in the state of Samadhi . So remembering Krishna in all the three states that are possible for the jeeva in samsara is the goal for a mukthi yogya jeeva. If one were able to accomplish this then the Lord's grace is sure to encompass such a person and he can rest assured that the Lord will grant him mukthi and burn off his sanchita and agami karmas. The heavy weight that accompanies the jeeva is the weight of
its karma over past lives. This weight will be unburdened by the Lord when the soul is eligible for his grace. Sir Vyasarajaru says 'mikka bAra' means the remaining karma which has not come into play . The karma which is not in the accumulated parcel but has been approved for the jeeva's experience is called as prArabdha. This has to be endured even if it takes more than a life time, but Sri Vyasarajaru gives the assurance that the jeeva will be relieved of the responsibility for the baggage of karma in store .



ಸಕಲ ವೇದ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ಪಟಿಸಿ ಸಾರವನ್ನು ತಿಳಿದರೇನು
ಮಕರ ಕುಂಡಲ ಧರನ ನಾಮಕೆ ಸಾಟಿಯಿಲ್ಲವೊ

sakala vedA shAstra paTisi sAravannu tilidarenu
makara kuMdala darana nAmake saTiyillavo

Study of the Veda's , Shastras is done in order to learn about the glories of the Lord . If one has studied the vedas and shastras and found out the essence of them , but does not implement what he has learnt or if he does not experience what he has learnt then his learning is not equivalent to one who can call out the names of the Lord with the understanding that the names of the Lord are to glorify Him and not just to call him. A devotee who can experience the glory of the Lord by chanting his name is the ideal devotee.



ಕಮಲನಾಭನ ಚಿಹ್ನೆಯನ್ನು ಧರಿಸಿ ಕೊಂಡು ಮೆರೆಯಿರೋ
ಯಮನ ಭಟರು ನೋಡಿ ಅ೦ಜಿ ಅಡವಿ ಪೋಗುವರೋ

kamalanAbana chinneyanu dharisi koMDu mereyirO
yamana bhaTaru nODi anji aDavi pOguvaro

He suggests that one should have those adornments on the body that show that
he is a Haribhakta . Looking towards the spiritual side : Sri Vyasarajaru may want to convey that a person who has done the upasana of the Lord as KamalanAbha is one who's mind is unadhered to any attachment of the world even though existing in it. "Kamalanabha" is the Lord with the lotus in his navel. Such a person will not be born again, and will not be chased by the servants of Yama. It means such a person will reach his higher goal of mukthi.

ಜನ್ಮವೆತ್ತಿ ಮಧ್ವ ಮತವಾ ಅನುಸರೀಸಿ ನಡೆಯಿರೋ
ಸುಮ್ಮಾನದಿ ಶ್ರೀ ಕ್ರಿಸ್ಣಾ ತನ್ನ ಲೋಕ ಕೊಡುವನೋ

janma vetti madhva matavA anusarIsi neDeyirO
summAnadi sri krishnA tanna lOka koDuvanO

Sri Vyasaraju is exhorting such people who are disciples of Sri Madhvacharya to follow the tenets of the philosophy and he says that the Lord will easily bestow His grace on such a devotee and grant the sadhaka a place in His world.
