Kailasa Parampara Guru Vandana


A Chant to the Kailasa Preceptors

Translation: The guru parampara that began with Sadasiva, that is filled with the bliss of Nandinatha; that radiates the Siddhantic light of Tirumlar, (1)

That flows glimmering gently from the holy silence of Rishi; that was adorned by the power of the wondrous siddhis of Kadaitswami; (2)

That has been enriched by Chellappaswami, that has been splendidly articulated by Yogaswami that instantly destroys miseries and showers sublime bliss; (3)

That has, though the great, auspiciously devotional sadhanas of Gurudeva (Sivaya Subramuniyaswami), who followed Siva's liberating San Marga; (4)

And that is currently protected enthusiastically and in all ways by Bodhinathaswami, to that Guru Parampara I offer my heartfelt obeisance. (5)
