Srimadh Bhagavadh Geetha Dhyana Slokas - Invocation
om paarthaaya prati bodhitaam bhagavata naaraayanena svayam
vyaasena grathitaam purana munina madhye mahaabhaaratam
advaita-amrita varshineem bhagvateem ashtada shaadhyayineem
amba tvam anu sandadhaami bhagavad geete bhava dveshineem (1)
Om, O Bhagavadgita, with which Partha (Arjuna) was illuminated by Lord Narayana Himself and which was composed in the middle of the Mahabharata by the ancient sage Vyasa, O Divine Mother, the destroyer of rebirth, the showerer of the nectar of Advaita (teaching of Oneness in all things) and consisting of eighteen chapters – upon Thee, O Bhagavad Gita! O affectionate Mother! I meditate on you.
namostu-te vyaasa vishaala buddhe phulla-aravindaayata-patranetra
yena tvayaa bhaarata taila poornah prajvaalito jnaana mayah: pradeepah: (2)
Salutations unto thee, O Vyasa of broad intellect and with eyes like petals of full-blown lotus, by whom the lamp of knowledge, filled with the oil of the Mahabharata, has been lighted.
prapanna paarijaataaya totra vetraika paanaye
jnaana mudraya krishnaya geetaamrita-duhe namah: (3)
Salutations to Krishna, the Parijata tree or the Kalpataru or the bestower of all desires for those who take refuge in Him, the holder of the whip in one hand, the wielder of the symbol of knowledge, and the Milker of the nectar of the Bhagavadgita.
sarvopanishado gaavo dogdhaa gopaala nandanah:
paartho vatsah: sudheer bhokta dugdham geetaamritam mahat (4)
All the Upanishads are cows; the Milker is Krishna, the cowherd boy; Partha (Arjuna) is the calf; men of purified intellect are the drinkers, the milk is the great nectar of the Gita.
vasudeva sutam devam kamsa chaanoora mardanam
devakee paramaanandam krishnam vande jagadgurum (5)
I salute Lord Krishna, one who is the Guru for the entire world, son of Vasudeva, the destroyer of Kamsa and Chanura, the supreme bliss of Devaki.
bheeshma drona tataa jayadratha jalaa gaandhara neelotpalaa
shalya graahavatee krupena vahani karnena velaakulaa
ashvathaama vikarna-ghora-makara duryodhanaa vartinee
sotteernaa khalu paandavai rana nadee kaivartakah keshavah (6)
With Keshava as the helmsman, the Pandavas crossed the battle of river wherein the banks were Bhishma and Drona, the water was Jayadratha, the blue lotus was the King of Gandhara, the crocodile was Salya, the current was Kripa, the billow was Karna, the terrible alligators were Ashvattama and Vikarna, and the whirlpool was Duryodhana.
paraasharya vacah sarojam-amalam geetaartha gandhotkatam
naanaa-khyaanaka-kesaram hari-kathaa sambodhanaa bodhitam
loke sajjana shatpadair raha raha: pepeeya-maanam mudaa
bhooyad bharata pankajam kalimala pradvamshinah shreyase (7)
May this lotus of the Mahabharata, born in the lake of the words of Vyasa, sweet with fragrance of the meaning of the Gita, with many stories as its stamens, fully bloomed by the discourses on Hari, the destroyer of the sons of the Kali age, and drunk joyously by the bees of good men in the world, day by day become the bestower of good to us.
mookam karoti vaachaalam pangum langhayate girim
yatkrupa tamaham vande paramaananda maadhavam (8)
I salute that Madhava, the source of supreme bliss, by whose grace even the dumb man speak eloquently and the handicapped cripple can cross mountains.
yam brahmaa varunendra rudra marutah: stunvanti divyaih stavaih:
vedaih saanga pada kramopanishadir gaayanti yam saamagah:
dhyana avasthita tad gatena manasaa pashyanti yam yogino
yasyaantam na viduh: suraa suraganaa devaaya tasmai namah: (9)
Salutations to that God, Whom Brahma, Varuna, Indra, Rudra and the Maruts praise with divine hymns, of Whom the Vedic pundits chants with Sama Veda in the Pada and the Krama methods, and by the Upanishads, Whom the Yogins see with their minds absorbed in Him through meditation, and whose end the hosts of Devas and Asuras know not.
