భావగ్రాహీ జనార్దనః

July 2, 2016

మూర్ఖో వదతి విష్ణాయ విద్వాన్ వదతి విష్ణవే
ఉభయో స్సదృశం పుణ్యం భావగ్రాహీ జనార్దనః

mUrkhO vadati vishNAya = An uneducated person not knowledgeable of vyAkaraNa and the declination of words ending with “u” says “vishnAya namaH” to pray

vidvAn vadati vishNavE = a learned person properly prays “vishNavE namaH”

ubhayOH sadRSam puNyam = (but) both achieve the same virtue

bhAvagrAhI janArdanaH = The supreme lord janArdana only takes the essential intent i.e, bhAva and not the words / material stuff used to convey it!
