Recitation in Sri Swamiji's voice

 

sama:ha:raha = collection, sa:mna:m = of the Sa:ma Ve:da; 

prathipadam = as a synonym, rucha:m = for Rig Ve:da;

dha:ma = home of,  yajusha:m = for the Yajur Ve:da;

layaha = destroyer,  prathyu:ha:na:m = obstacles; 

laharivithathi = like the waves;

bo:dha jaladhe:he = of the ocean of knowledge; 

katha:darpa = pride due to arguments,  kshyubhyath =  arrogant;

kathakakula = opponents,  ko:lahala bhavam = formed due to commotion;

harathu = may dispel, anthardhwa:ntham = the darkness of ignorance within;

hayavadana he:sha: halahala = the commotion that was caused by the neighing of Hayagriva;

 

    Hayagriva is the Lord of all deities. It is His voice that has manifested itself as Sa:ma Ve:da. All the Gods rejoice listening to the Sa:ma Ve:da. Thereby, they please the Lord also. Out of this, they get immense satisfaction. The neighing of Hayavadana is itself a recital of Sa:ma Ve:da which captivates all deities.

    The Rig Ve:da indicates the various duties to be performed, their sequence as well as the manthra:s to be recited for different purposes. Hayagriva’s neighing is just an alternative to all the sounds contained in the Rig Ve:da. Therefore, this neighing ensures the fructification of all duties performed.

    The Yajur Ve:da indicates the benefits that follow particular acts, who should do what and how and their significance. This Ve:da tell us more about the unseen benefits. The neighing of the Swami is verily the abode of the Yajur Ve:da.

      The very recalling of this amounts to a recounting of all Ve:da:s.
