Narayaneeyam is the story of Lord Narayana. It is a work consisting of 1035 slokas or verses, divided into 100 dasakams or chapters, each dasakam consisting of approximately 10 slokas. It is a condensed version of Bhagavata Purana, which consists of 18,000 slokas authored by Veda Vyasa. Reading the Narayaneeyam is said to possess the miraculous power of healing illnesses, both mental and physical. Daily reading of the work can help the devotees attain good health and vitality.
Narayaneeyam narrates a series of episodes from the Bhagavata Purana, choosing the most pious of the lot. The incarnations of Vishnu are traced with piety, Bhattathiri transforms the episodes into solemn prayers, pouring out his soul in total supplication before the Lord. The final dasaka, Kesadipaada Varnanam, embodies top-to-toe picture of little Krishna in all grace and glory. Narayaneeya Sapthaham ( the recitation of Narayaneeyam and explaining the meaning to the public) is conducted in Guruvayur temple by Devaswom on the Narayaneeya Dinam and by others as offerings. It is done for seven consecutive days from early morning till 6:10 p.m. Narayaneeya Sapthaham has started in Guruvayur in the early 1950s. It takes about 5 hours to read the slokas and about 45 hours for explaining the slokas.
Narayaneeyam is the masterpiece of Melpathur and is the most widely read of all his works. The poet depicts the image of Lord Guruvayurappan, in exemplary terms – “Sammohanam Mohanal Kantham Kanthinidhanathopi, Madhuram Madhurya Dhuryadapi, Soundaryotharathopi Sundaratharam”
