to continue the cosmic cycle for ever.

कालः कर्म गुणाश्च जीवनिवहा विश्वं च कार्यं विभो
चिल्लीलारतिमेयुषि त्वयि तदा निर्लीनतामाययुः।
तेषां नैव वदन्त्यसत्त्वमयि भो शक्त्यात्मना तिष्ठतां
नो चेत् किं गगनप्रसून सदृशां भूयो भवेत् संभवः॥२॥
श्रीमन्नारायणीये दशकं ५
विभो तदा कालः कर्म्मगुणाः च  जीवनिवहाः कार्यम् विश्वं च चिल्लीलारतिम् एयुषि त्वयि  निर्लीनतां आययुः।  अयि भोः शक्त्यात्मना तिष्ठतां तेषां असत्त्वं न एव वदन्ति।  नोचेत् गगनप्र्सूनसदृशां तेषां भूयः संभवः किं भवेत्।

Guruvayurappa, during that long period of deluge, you were engaging yourself in  simple contemplation of your own inner being, In you, the all pervading master,  time and all good  and bad deeds which form the karma and the three gunas of sattwa raja  and tamas, and all groups of animate and inanimate beings  simply dissolved
My lord, are the three gunas, time etc are all in a way illusory like the flowers formed in the sky  (perhaps by the fleeting white clouds).. but through your maaya they manifest and exist in a frame of reference created by your exalted chit.

The idea is very difficult to comprehend.  We humans live in a frame of reference which for us is very real. I cannot say my eyes, ear, speech or hunger ar mere illusions..Then I may have to say that even my death will be only an illusion.  But the Universal soul by its on powers of will, makes everything, time, discretion, tendencies and the physical appearance of the beings at micro and macro levels, illusory during the Pralayas and then again runs the drama of the apparent world  for some eons, again returning to pralaya... to continue the cosmic cycle for ever.

This part of Narayaneeyam is entirely speculative and in fact tries to describe something which cannot be comprehended by anyone who is existing in the universe under the spell of Maya.  But when  covering such a great work one cannot afford to skip these parts also.

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
