Meaning:

O Supreme Divine Master, Thou art Lord Sri Sai Narayana – The Saviour and Sustainer of all and art The Beloved Divine Lord of Mother Lakshmi – Who is The Goddess of Wealth and Prosperity. O Lord Sri Sai we surrender ourselves to Thee. Thou art The Lord of Guruvayurpura. (The Guruvayur temple in Kerala, near Thrissur, is a famous Temple of Lord Sri Krishna which is considered to be the Dwarka of Southern region. It is said that Lord Brahma worshipped Lord Sri Krishna’s Idol and gifted it to Lord Sri Vishnu during Krishnaavtaaram. After Lord Sri Krishna left for HIS Heavenly Abode, The City of Dwarka was submerged under sea. Guru – The Preceptor of The Gods and Vayu – The Wind God were entrusted with the work of finding a suitable place to install the Holy Idol. After a long search, it is said that both Guru and Vayu installed The Idol at The Temple, at the insistence of Guru Parshuram. The place got its name ‘Guruvayur’ because both Guru and Vayu installed the idol. The Deity is known as ‘Guru Vayur Appan’ meaning ‘Lord of Guru Vayur’. It is a very very powerful place of worship of Lord Sri Krishna and ‘Tulaabharam’ takes place here i.e. people offer of their own weight either fruits, food, gold, silver etc. depending on what they have committed. This temple has very strict rules of discipline. Here in this temple men are not allowed to wear a shirt and have to wear the dhoti on their trousers. As far as the ladies are concerned they have to abide by a strict code of dress to enter the temple.)
