THE LORD OF GURUVAYUR

Indeed, nowhere also do you see Bhakti demonstrated More feelingly than at Guruvayur. As the Lord said to Arjuna in the Gita: "I am responsible for the welfare of those who think of me to the exclusion of all else and who remain devoted to me all the time," Guruvayurappan comes to the rescue of his Bhaktas in distress and manifests His grace in infinite and inscrutable ways. His glory has thus spread far and wide and like Tirupati, Guruvayur is fast developing into a pilgrim center of all-India fame.

Narayaniyam-The Gospel of Guruvayur

There are several mahatmyas (literally, works describing the, greatness or importance of a place or deity etc.,) legends and folk-tales extolling the glory of the Lord of Guruvayur. The Narayaniyam, which may be described as the Gospel of Guruvayur and which identifies Guruvayurappan with Mahavishnu, the central figure of the Bhagavata, is the greatest of these mahatmyas, creating a Guruvayur in the heart of everyone who reads or listens to it. To hundreds of thousands of devotees who come here on pilgrimage all round the year the very name Narayaniyam is a source of spiritual sustenance.
