Tribute to Dr. KS Narayanacharya by RK Bellur

November 26, 2021

Erudite scholar Sri KS Narayanacharya no more

I can still hear the powerful voice of Sri Acharya, chanting the below Sri Hayagreeva stotra, before his lecture:

श्रीमान् वेङ्कटनाथार्यः कवितार्किककेसरी ।
वेदान्ताचार्यवर्यो मे सन्निधत्तां सदा हृदि ॥
ज्ञानानन्द मयं देवं निर्मलस्फटिकाकृतिम् ।
आधारं सर्व विद्यानां हयग्रीवम् उपास्महे ॥

Shriman Venkatnarthaye Kavitakirkkesari
Vedantacharyavaryo me Sannidhatam sada Hradi |
jñānānanda mayaṁ devaṁ nirmalasphaṭikākṛtim |
ādhāraṁ sarva vidyānāṁ hayagrīvam upāsmahe || 1 ||

[Meditate upon the Supreme Being, Sri Hayagriva, the embodiment of knowledge. Sri Hayagriva is an integrated form of knowledge and bliss. The one with the face and neck of a horse and who has a radiant, sparkling body like a pure white crystal, he is the abode of all learning. He is the first God of all knowledge.]
