Narayaneeyam: A Summary of Bhagavata Purana in Sanskrit

Narayaneeyam is a devotional Sanskrit work, in the form of a poetical hymn, consisting of 1036 verses (called 'slokas' in Sanskrit). It was written by Melpathur Narayana Bhattathiri, (15601666 AD) one of the celebrated Sanskrit poets in Kerala. It is a summary study of the Bhāgavata Purana, one of the 18 major Puranas, which describes the various incarnations and leelas (divine play) of Lord Vishnu, the supreme God in Hinduism.


Narayana Bhattathiri was born as the second son in a Namboodiri family of Kerala. He mastered the Vedas as well as the art of literary composition. As per the custom of those days, he married the daughter of Sri Achyutha Pisharodi, who was his teacher as well as his father-in-law. When Pisharodi was suffering from rheumatism, Bhattathiri prayed to God and got the disease transferred to him. This disease was very severe in his case and he suffered a lot.

When he consulted Thunchathu Ezhuthachan, who was a great writer and translator of Ramayanam, he advised him to write touching (starting) from the fish. Bhattathiri understood that this meant that he had to write starting from the fish incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He then went to Guruvayur, a famous temple town in Kerala, where Lord Krishna is worshipped as Guruvayurappan (the Lord of Guruvayur). He started writing a summary of Bhagawatha Purana, which is considered as the most authoritative scripture on Lord Vishnu.

He wrote one chapter consisting of ten verses daily and planned to write one hundred chapters. Though he did not mention anything about his sickness and suffering in the first two chapters, the third chapter is essentially a plea by him to Lord Guruvayurappan to cure him. In one verse, he says that he may not be able to continue what he was doing. From then on, in the last verse of every chapter, he made a plea to God to cure him.

The first 36 chapters deal with various incarnations of Lord Vishnu, and chapters 37-88 deal exclusively with the story of Lord Krishna. Chapters 89-99 deal with the extolling of Vishnu as a primeval God as well as several philosophical concepts. The last chapter is a mellifluous description of the lord from head to foot. It was completed on 27-11-1587 as denoted by the last words of the last verse. It is believed that Bhattathiri was cured of his disease by the grace of Lord Guruvayurappan on the completion of Narayaneeyam.
