THE LORD OF GURUVAYUR

The author of this great work is Meppattur Narayana Bhattatiri, one of the foremost Sanskrit poets and savants of Kerala. He was stricken with acute rheumatism. He tried every remedy known to man but in vain. At last he went to the Lord of Guruvayur, the Divine Healer for relief. There he composed his magnum opus of more than thousand slokas in praise of the Lord and recited them before the deity.

Almost every one of the hundred dasakas (sets of ten verses) ends with a prayer to the Lord of Guruvayur to cure the Poet's malady. And cured he was by the Grace of Guruvayurappan. With this the glory of Guruvayurappan-and also of Bhattatiri-spread far and wide.
