Prasna Uttara Malika (A garland of questions and answers) – Adisankara

 

कोऽर्च्यो हि भगवदवतारः .

 

Indeed who is to be worshipped ? Incarnation of God

 

कश्च भगवान्महेशः शञ्करनारायणात्मैकः

 

Who is the Lord ? The Supreme Lord who is both Shankara and Narayana.

 

फलमपि भगवद्भक्तेः किं तल्लोकस्वरुपसाक्षात्त्वं .

 

And what is the result of devotion to the Lord ? The immediate relaisation of His Abode and one’s own nature

What is there in this world that devotion to the Lord cannot do?

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
