Pasayadan Meaning

The infinite meaning of Pasayadan like concealed within the visible universe

Salutations to the Lord of all, who is concealed within the visible universe. It is He who causes this universe to appear, and it is He who causes it to vanish as well. When He is revealed, the universe disappears; when He is concealed, the universe shines forth.

Yet, He doesn’t hide Himself, nor does He reveal Himself; He is always present before us at every moment. No matter how diverse and varied the universe appears, He remains unmoved, unchanged. And this is just as one would expect, since He is always one, without a second.

This poetry is simply begging to God and holy offerings. Pasaydan is the hidden meaning of eternal life, the verse of his entire Dnyaneshwari that is placed together beautifully in a summarized manner in front of the creator of the universe, Almighty. He explained that let pessimism vanishes throughout but not the pessimist because vanishing of defeatist won’t extinguish negativity.

Let the positivity spread across the globe, the disorder is not natural but situational. Friends are selfless and omnipresent in love, and all the Yogi saints have been telling this universal truth for ages. This prayer has been for the inner happiness of human, unique common peace of all.

Dnyaneshwar who had become a great teacher brought positivity and made its way clear to people of Maharashtra. Therefore, it is the most critic novel Dnyaneshwari and its poem Pasayadan became the greatest one of Marathi.

Pasayadan in Sanskrit (Pasayadan Lyrics in Marathi)

आतां विश्वात्मकें देवें ।
येणें वाग्यज्ञें तोषावें ।
तोषोनि मज द्यावें ।
पसायदान हें ॥ १ ॥
जे खळांची व्यंकटी सांडो ।
तयां सत्कर्मीं रती वाढो ।
भूतां परस्परें पडो ।

मैत्र जीवांचें ॥ २ ॥
दुरिताचें तिमिर जावो ।
विश्व स्वधर्म सूर्यें पाहो ।
जो जें वांच्छील तो तें लाहो ।
प्राणिजात ॥ ३ ॥

वर्षत सकळमंगळीं ।
ईश्वर निष्ठांची मांदियाळी ।
अनवरत भूमंडळीं ।
भेटतु या भूतां ॥ ४ ॥

चलां कल्पतरूंचे आरव ।
चेतना चिंतामणीचें गांव ।
बोलते जे अर्णव । पीयूषाचे ॥ ५ ॥
चंद्रमे जे अलांछन ।
मार्तंड जे तापहीन ।
ते सर्वांही सदा सज्जन ।
सोयरे होतु ॥ ६ ॥

किंबहुना सर्वसुखीं ।
पूर्ण होऊनि तिहीं लोकीं ।
भाजिजो आदिपुरुखीं ।
अखंडित ॥ ७ ॥
आणि ग्रंथोपजीविये ।
विशेषीं लोकीं इयें ।
दृष्टादृष्ट विजयें ।
होआवें जी ॥ ८ ॥

येथ म्हणे श्रीविश्वेश्वरावो ।
हा होईल दानपसावो ।
येणें वरें ज्ञानदेवो ।
सुखिया झाला ॥ ९ ॥

Pasayadan Meaning in English

The weakness of the person disappears and bring happiness and allow them and bring interest in doing good and great things and multiply friendship infinitely not only in humans but among all the creatures on this holy earth.

Darkness disappears and sunrise in every individual and everyone’s wishes of life always is fulfilled. Saints of all the universe may come on the earth and meet every living thing and be blessed. Saints who are walking gardens of great divine trees and the conscious villages spread love and sweetness like nectar the size of the sea.

The saints who are pure like the moon without spots, sun without heat are friends of all the creatures on this earth forever. All the three humans with their happy heart and pleasure should always serve the ancient (the first) man of this universe uninterruptedly.

Conquer all the visible and invisible sufferings of humans in this world. Shri Nivruttinath said that you will get this holy offering. Dnyaneshwar heard of the tailored and got happy with that.

Meaning of Pasayadan lyrics in Marathi

आता विश्वात्मक देवाने,
या माझ्या वाग्यज्ञाने संतुष्ट व्हावे आणि मला हे पसायदान ( प्रसाद ) द्यावे. ॥ १ ॥
दुष्टांचे दुष्टपण नाहीसे होवो,
त्यांना सत्कर्मे करण्या मध्ये स्वारस्य वाढो.
सर्व प्राणीमात्रांमध्ये मित्रत्वाची भावना निर्माण होवो. ॥ २ ॥
पापी माणसाचा अज्ञानरुपी अंधार नाहीसा होवो,
विश्वात स्वधर्मरूपी सूर्याचा उदय होवो.


प्राणमात्रांच्या मंगल इच्छा पूर्ण होवोत. ॥ ३ ॥
सर्व प्रकारच्या मंगलांचा वर्षाव करणारे ईश्वरनिष्ठ संत पृथ्वीवर अवतरत जावोत आणि प्राणिमात्रांना भेटत जावोत. ॥ ४ ॥
जे (संत) कल्पतरूंची चालती बोलती उद्याने आहेत,
चेतनारूपी चिंतामणी रत्नांची जणू गावेच आहेत,
अमृताचे बोलणारे समुद्रच आहेत, ॥ ५ ॥

जे कोणताही डाग नसलेले निर्मळ चंद्रच आहेत,
तापहीन सूर्यच आहेत असे संतसज्जन सर्व प्राणिमात्रांचे मित्र होवोत. ॥ ६ ॥
तिन्ही लोकांनी सर्व सुखांनी परिपूर्ण होऊन अखंडितपणे विश्वाच्या आदिपुरुषाची सेवा करावी. ॥ ७ ॥
हा ग्रंथ ज्यांचे जीवन आहे,
त्यांनी या जगातील दृष्य आणि अदृष्य भोगांवर विजयी व्हावे. ॥८ ॥
यावर विश्वेश्वर गूरु श्री निवृत्तीनाथ म्हणाले की हा प्रसाद तुला लाभेल.
या वराने ज्ञानदेव सुखी झाले. ॥ ९ ॥

“Now may the cosmic God be satisfied with my rhetoric and give me this Pasaydan (offering). ॥ 1Let the wickedness of the wicked disappear, let them be interested in doing good deeds. Create a sense of friendship in all creatures. ॥ 2May the darkness of ignorance of the sinful man disappear, may the sun of self-righteousness rise in the universe.

May the wishes of life be fulfilled. ॥ 3May the God-fearing saints who shower all kinds of Mars come down to earth and meet the creatures. ॥ 4Those (saints) are the walking gardens of Kalpataru, the villages of conscious Chintamani gems, the speaking seas of nectar,॥ 5May the saints who are pure moons without any spots, without sun without heat, be the friends of all creatures. ॥ ६

All three should be perfect in all their pleasures and should serve the Primordial Man of the universe uninterruptedly. ॥ 7Those who have this scripture as their life should conquer the visible and invisible sufferings of this world. ॥८॥Vishweshwar Guru Shri Nivruttinath said that you will get this Prasad.
