MADHWA · sloka · Vishnu

Sree Vishnu Shodasa Nama Stotram

Recite this sloka in the morning as soon as you wake up, would help you to get rid of sins and reach the vishnu loka at the end

Oushade Chinthaye Vishnum Bhojane cha Janardhanam
Sayane Padmanabham cha, Vivahe cha Prajapathim.

Yuddhe Chakradharam devam,Pravase cha Trivikramam
Narayanam Thanu thyage, Sreedharam priya sangame,

Duswapne smara , Govindam,Sankate Madhu sudhanam
Kanane Narasimham cha, Pavake Jalasayinam,

Jalamadhye Varaham cha,Parvathe Raghu nandanam
Gamane Vamanam Chaiva , Sarva Karyeshu Madhavam.

Shodasaithani Naamani,Prathar uthaaya ya padeth
Sarva papa vinirmuktho, Vishnu lokam samopnuyath.

Meaning:

Think him as Vishnu while taking medicine,

As Janardhana while eating food,

As Padmanabha while in bed,

As Prajapathi at time of marriage,

As Chakra dhara while engaged in war,

As Trivikrama while on travel,

As Narayana on death bed,

As Sreedhara while meeting with the beloved,

As Govinda while tossing with bad dreams,

As Madhu Sudhana while in trouble,

As Narasimha while in the forest,

As Jala Sayina while fire is ravaging,

As Varaha while struggling in water,

As Raghu nandana while lost in a mountain,

As Vamana while on the move,

And as Madhava while doing everything.

As soon as one wakes up in the morn,

If these sixteen names are read,

He would be bereft of all sins,

And reach the world of Vishnu at the end.

Sankshipta gajendra moksha(bhagavatham)

It is said in the Bhagavatha that a person who remembers the story of gajEndra mOksha as soon as one wakes up in the morning, is blessed with hari smaraNe during maraNa kAla.
There is a sankshipta gajEndra mOksha which is very easy for parayane.

 Here are the 2 verses:

Having heard his plea, the Lord who is apramEya, with the chakra came on the shoulders of garuDa and killed the crocodile with His chakra and freed the elephant by His hands.

Sloka to recite early morning in bed

Wake up everyday with a positive thought. Morning gives positive energy. It is the best time of the day to start your prayer.

This shloka is to be recited in the morning. when you get up, just sit in the bed and Relax. Chant this shloka with eyes still closed, and open them by the fourth part (ma~NgalaM karadarshanam) and see your hands and smile.

This exercise is so good, that it helps you stabilize your blood pressure. After lying down for 6-7 hours and if you suddenly get up for alarm or some sound, there can be a pressure drop in the brain and this is known to be the most important factor in early morning strokes. Both shlokas when recited slowly will take about 1-2 minutes which is sufficient for  your brain to get used to new blood pressure.

 ಕರಾಗ್ರೇ ವಸತೇ ಲಕ್ಷ್ಮೀ ಕರಮಧ್ಯೆ ಸರಸ್ವತಿ
ಕರಮೂಲೇ ತು ಗೋವಿಂದಃ ಪ್ರಭಾತೇ ಕರದರ್ಶನಂ

Karaagre Vasate Lakshmi Karamadhye Sarasvati,
Karamuule Tu Govinda Prabhaate Kara dharshanam
Meaning: The front part of the hands (the finger tips) is credited to Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth. The middle part or palm is credited to Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of learning and the root (the part of hand near the wrist) to Govinda. So, every morning, one should have a  look at one’s hand which represents sincere labor.

ಸಮುದ್ರ ವಸನೆ ದೇವಿ ಪರ್ವತ ಸ್ತನಮನ್ದಲೆ
ವಿಷ್ನುಪತ್ನಿ ನಮಸ್ತುಭ್ಯಂ ಪಾದಸ್ಪರ್ಶಂ ಕ್ಷಮಸ್ವಮೆ
 Samudravasane Devi Parvatastanamandale,
Vishhnupatni Namastubhyam Paadasparsham Kshamasva Me
Meaning: I bow to Mother Earth, who has mountains and jungles on her body and whose clothing is made by the ocean. The wife of Lord Vishnu, please pardon me for touching you with my feet.
