Bhagawad Gita Dhyanam

(Those who do Parayana of Bhagawad Gita, should chant this prayer before starting
reading Gita. This remarkable prayer brings out the greatness of Bhagawad Gita
brilliantly. I do not know who is the author of this Dhyanam.)
1.Om Parthaya prathi boditham bhagawathaa narayanena swayam,
Vyasaena grahitham Purana muninaa madhye Mahabaratham,
Advaithamrutha varshaneem bhagawtheem ashta dasa dhyayineem,
Ambaa thwaam anusandadhami bhagwad geethaa bhava dweshineem.
That which was taught to Arjuna by Lord Narayana himself,
Which was written by the epic sage Vyasa in the middle of Mahabaratha,
Oh Mother goddess who showers the nectar of advaitha called the Bhagawad Gita ,
Which has eighteen chapters , I meditate on you mother who removes all past karma
2. Namosthuthe Vyasa vishala budhe, phullaravindata tha pathra nethra,
Yena thwayaa Bharatha thaila poorna prajjvalitho jnanamaya pradheepa.
Salutations to Vyasa who has immense intellect , who has eyes like petals of a lotus flower,
Who has filled up the oil to the lamp of Mahabaratha , and lighted it to pinpoint wisdom.
3.Prapanna parijataya , totra vetraika panaye ,
Jnana mudhraaya Krishnaaya geethamritha duhe nama.
Salutations to Krishna who is a wish giving tree, who holds a cane to drive the cattle ,
Who also shows the seal of Jnana , and gave us all the nectar of Gita.
4.Sarvaopanishadho gaavo dogdhaa Gopala Nandana,
Parthoo vathsa sudheer bhokthaa dugdam Geetamritham mahath.
All the Upanishads are the cows and Krishna is the one who milks them,
Arjuna is the calf , The devotees are the consumers of the great nectar of Gita.
5.Vasudeva sutham devam kamsa Chanoora mardhanam,
Devaki paramanandam Krishnam vande Jagat Gurum.
I salute the teacher of the world , who is the son of Vasudeva ,
Who killed Kamsa and Chanoora and is the one who gave divine joy to Devaki.
6.Bheeshma drona thata jayadradha jalaa , Gandhaara neelothphala,
Shalyaaa grahavathee , kripena vahanee , karnena Velakulaa,
Aswathama Vikarnaa ghora Makaraa Duryodhana varthinee,

I salute him who is worshipped by divine chants by Brahma. And whose end is not known even by the hoards of devas and Asuras. Bheeshma and Drona were two banks .
