The orders of God is to continue my work
In the year 2000 (I was 60) I started doing translation of stotras in to English.Within a period of 18 months , I completed translation of 41 stotras, which included two Sahasra Namas . Slowly and surely I went on translating .In 2008 , I had translated about 400 stotras. It was at this time one of my friends badly needed a translation of Adhyathma Ramayanam from Malayalam. By the grace of God I completed it in 4 months. Then one web site owner Sri Lakshmanan specifically phoned to me and requested me to translate Valmiki Ramayanam in to English. This job took more than 18 months .Having done both , I was asked by my friend , why not Kamba RAmayanam. The job was extremely difficult and I took almost 18 months to complete it. Side by side I started doing translation of Carnatic Musical Krithis.When I went to Mumbai to attend a marriage , my sister in laws daughter came in search of me and gave a book of all compositions of sAint Thyagraja. I considered it as an order of God and translated all of them In the beginning of 2016 , I had translated 15 books , 1500 Carnatic Krithis and about 1200 Stotra Rathnas, I was getting old and old age began to tell on me . So I reduced my work and decided in July 2016 that I would stop doing further translations . I was doing small prayers , small poems etc and wanted to discontinue the job by end of August . On 26th August 2018, my scholary friend Ananthanarayanan Vaidhyanathan send me a complete book of prayers on goddess published by Gita press .He got it on line. He wrote to me that I might have translated them but he felt that it would be useful to me .I felt that this was an order to me from the God to continue what I am doing as per His wishes. I started reading the book and translating stotras which I had not done earlier . In these two months I have translated 33 stotras and suddenly about 15 days back , my face book friend Geetha Kalyan send me a book called “Devi Narayaneeyam” translated by her from Malayalam to Tamil .I felt that if it is translated in to English , it would be a great service to our religion. I requested her to do it but she said , she was very busy in several activities and wanted me to do that job . I again consider it is an Order I of God and would start doing the translation of that great book to English. The book has 410 slokas . I would make a trial believing that it is God’s will .
