॥श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः॥
||śrī gurubhyo namaḥ||

this day is Vyaas purnima,, and I pay obeisance to Krishna Dakshinaamoorthy and Sankara the three primordial jagatgurus


वसुदेवसुतं देवं कंसचाणूर मर्द्दनं।
देवकीपरमानन्दं कृष्णं वन्दे जगत्गुरुं॥
vasudevasutaṁ devaṁ kaṁsacāṇūra marddanaṁ|
devakīparamānandaṁ kṛṣṇaṁ vande jagatguruaṁ||

चित्रं वटतरोर्मूले वृद्धशिष्याः गुरुर्युवा।
गुरोस्तु मौनं व्याख्यानं शिष्यास्तु च्छिन्नसम्शयाः॥
citraṁ vaṭatarormūle vṛddhaśiṣyāḥ gururyuvā|
gurostu maunaṁ vyākhyānaṁ śiṣyāstu cchinnasamśayāḥ||

श्रुतिस्मृतिपुरणानां आलयं करुणालयं।
नमामि भगवत्पाद शंकरम् लोकशंकरं॥
śrutismṛtipuraṇānāṁ ālayaṁ karuṇālayaṁ|
namāmi bhagavatpāda śaṁkaram lokaśaṁkaraṁ||

॥श्री गुरुभ्यो नमः॥
||śrī gurubhyo namaḥ||

വസുദേവസുതം ദേവം കംസ ചാണൂര മര്‍ദ്ദനം
ദെവകീ പരമാനന്ദം കൃഷ്ണം വന്ദേ ജഗത്ഗുരുമ്
ചിത്രം വട തരോര്‍മൂലേ വൃദ്ധ ശിഷ്യാ ഗുരുര്യുവാ
ഗുരോസ്തു മൌനം വ്യാഖ്യാനം
ശിഷ്യാസ്തു ഛിന്ന സംശയാ:
ശ്രുതിസ്മൃതിപുരാണാനാം ആലയം കരുണാലയം
നമാമി ഭഗവത്പാദ ശങ്കരം ലോകശംകരം
ശ്രീ ഗുരുഭ്യോ നമ :

The son of vasudeva, the slayer of kamsa and chanoora and the sole repository of all the love of Devaki..
He is Krishna.. He is the primordial Guru, having given us Gita and everything in life.

The young Dakshnaamurthi, the incarnation of Shiva is sitting under a peepul tree in absolute silence with chinmudra on his right hand .
The disciples sitting around him are all old and wizened rishis. 
The guru just indicates the mudra and the clouded minds of the disciples are cured of all doubts. 
He is the primordial guru.

The embodiment of vedas and saastras, and the eternal spring of kaarunyam or compassion for the whole universe is the Bagavatpaada, Sankara, who had come to earth to cleanse it off all ignorance. 
He is the Primordial Guru of the universe.

My humble obeisance to the three
and 
the ocean of gurus starting from Hayagriva, Narada, Maarkandeya, Vyasa and ending with the great Achaaryaas who are sanctifying the earth by their presence even today

as also all the teachers who taught me alphabets in five languages,
who taught me arts and science,
who initiated me into vedas and astrology,
and
who guided me and made me what I had been in the taxation department

My pranams to the great masters like Jesus, 
The Prophet(sal),
Buddha the God, 
and
the entire guruparampara
