Bhaktaranjini – A Commentary on Srimad Narayaneeyam
Srimad Narayaneeyam is an immortal devotional hymn extolling the glory of Lord Guruvayoorappan, composed by Melpathur Narayana Bhattatiri, a great scholar-devotee who lived in Kerala in the 16th-17th centuries.
Bhaktaranjini, a commentary on Srimad Narayaneeyam, was published in the 1930s, authored by Brahmasri Mahopadhyaya K.G. Vancheswara Sastry and Brahmasri Mahopadhyaya R. Viswanatha Sastry. This commentary was in Malayalam.
In 2005, an English version of the commentary was published. This was authored by the late Shri K.V Gopalakrishna, son of Vancheswara Sastry, Shri G. Sankaran, the late Smt. Parvati Sankaran and Shri T.P Sivasubramani. Shri. S.N Sastri who had authored a commentary on Narayaneeyam earlier, has edited the work. A charitable trust – aptly named the Bhaktaranjini Trust – handles the publication of the book.
The 2nd edition of the book was published in 2010 and was sold out in 2021. In 2023, a limited reprint of the 2nd edition has been done.
