Introduction

||shrI gurubhyO namaH||


||hanuma-bhIma-madhvAMtargata rAma-kRuShNa-naraharivEdavyAsAtmaka shrI-lakSmhI-hayagrIvAya namaH||

manyu sUkta appears in two places in vedic literature:


RugvEda (maMDala: 10, sUkta: 83-4) and atharvavEda (kAMDa: 4 and
sUkta: 31-2). Apart from a few differences in the text, more or less the
two are same.
The 83rd sUkta [yastE manyO...] in the RugvEda is the 32nd sUkta in
atharvavEda; the 84th sUkta [tvayA manyO] is the 31st sUkta there.
The name of one sUkta is sEnAsaMyOjanasUkta [yastE manyO...] and
the name of the other sUkta is sEnAnirIkShaNasUkta [tvayA manyO...]

manyusUkta in RugvEda
RuShi: tApasa manyu
dEvata: manyu
ChaMdas: first three maMtra-s of the sUkta tvayA manyO is triShTup;
next four maMtra-s are in jagatI
manyusUkta in atharvavEda
RuShi: brahmAskaMda
dEvata: manyu
ChaMdas: 1st and 3rd maMtra-s are in triShTup; 2nd and 4th in bhuriktriShTup; last 3 maMtra-s are in jagatI.
The version that is in practice today everywhere is the one from RugvEda
and hence will be followed here too.

It is a practice to know the RuShi (the maMtra-draShTara), ChaMdas


(prosody) and the dEvata (presiding deity) of any vedic mantra before
recitation.
The sarvAnukramaNi speaks about these sUkta-s from the RugvEda like
this:
astE manyO manyOstApasO mAnyavaM tu jagatyAdi| tvayA manyO
chaturjagatyaMtaM|
The meaning of the above: The sUkta that begins with yastE manyO and
the sUkta following it has manyu tApasa as the RuShi and manyu as the
presiding deity. The prosody of the 1st mantra of the 1st sUkta is jagatI.
The remaing 6 mantras are in triShTup; The second sUkta starting with
tvayA manyO has the last four mantras in jagatI; the 1st three are in
triShTup.
The RuShi of the both these sUkta-s is manyu; the dEvata too is manyu!

Presiding deity
Who is this manyu dEvata? Some say, manyu means anger (krOdha) and
hence the presiding deity of anger is the dEvata of the sUkta-s.
But who is this krOdhAbhimAni?
People say it is rudra: rudrashcha krOdhasaMbhavaH
However those who have understood the scriptures know that the
indweller (aMtarayAmi) of rudra, Lord Narasimha is manyu.
Isnt narasimha anger incarnate? Even brahma-rudra and others felt
scared to pacify the rage of narasimha. It was only when He saw the kid
prahlAda, He regained composure.
manyu not only means anger, it also means knowledge. mana j~jAnE.

Even the anger of narasimha is the form of knowledge. Hence He is the


real manyu.

mantra RuShi
Who is this RuShi, tApasa manyu?
He could be some ancient sage.
It was only AchArya madhva who made this amaxinh revelation in his
mahAbhArata-tAtparya nirNaya:
Smaran nRusimhaM bhavaMtamIshvaraM|
Sa manyusUktaM cha dadarsha bhaktyA| (27 140)
yastE manyO ityatO narasimhaM
sOmaM tasmai chA&rpayachChONitAkhyaM|| (141)
[bhImasEna saw the manyusUkta yastE manyO; while contemplating on
the omnipotent Lord narasimha, while ripping the chest of duHshAsana.
Hence this is a narasimha sUkta. In this sacrifice of battle, he offered to
the Lord the sOma juice called the blood drained from the chest of
duHshAsana].
One single mantra can be perceived by several RuShi-s. Therefore all the
three, bramAskaMda, tApasamanyu and bhImasEna are the RuShi-s.
tApasamanyu could be none other than bhImasEna. He was an ascetic
(tApasa) who lived in the forest. He was also manyu who stood in battle
against the kaurava-s. He is also the form of knowledge praised as
darshata in the vEda-s.
tapas means the Lord who is j~jAnasvarUpa. Being His aMtaraMga
bhakta and also His son in His original form, bhImasEna is tApasa. Since
he is going to reach the position of brahma in the future, he is alos
brahmAskaMda: skaMdir gatau.

The surprising fact is that the entire sUkta is very similar to the incidents
of the mahAbhArata! The story of bhImas fight becomes more significant
and meaningful to us than the story of battle of some unknown manyu or
some brAmhaskaMda.
Hence let us analyse the sUkta in this perspective.

ChaMdas
Having known that the mantra RuShi is bhImasEna and presiding deity is
Lord narasimha, let us look into the ChaMdas of the mantras.
(I am giving just a brief information about the prosody compared to what
is in the book)
The 1st mantra of the 1st sUkta is in jagatI
jagatI has 4 lines of 12 alphabets in each summing up to 48 letters.
The rest of the 6 mantras are in triShTup.
triShTup has 4 lines of 11 letters each, having a total of 44 letters.
In the second sUkta, the 1st 3 mantras are in triShTup and last 4 in
jagatI.
The presiding deity of triShTup is shachi and that of jagatI is all dEvata
strI-s.
triShTup is a ChaMdas comprising of 11 alphabets in each line and related
to the 11 rudra-s (EkAdasha rudra-s)
jagatI is a ChaMdas comprising of 12 alphabets in each line and related to
the 12 Aditya-s (dvAdasha Aditya-s) and predominantly viShNu.

sUkta 1 mantra 1

The author Shri Bannanje Govindacharya has referred to the


commentaries of shri Dhirendra Tirtha and shri Atmakur
Padmanabhacharya on manyusUkta.

Summary:
[Having ripped apart the chest of duHshAsana, bhIma prays to Lord
narasimha who made him do the act]
Oh! The embodiment of knowledge! Oh narasihma who got infuriated over
sinners! Oh the one who pounces on enemies like a lightening! Oh the
sharp arrow who pierces and kills enemies! He who worships You in
accordance with scriptural injunctions, gathers and fills oneself, complete
insurmountable strength and the strength to defeat all. You, who is the
form of strength, forgiving mistakes, filling us with undefeatable strength,

staying with us, we would win those on the side of dhuryOdhana, the
enemy of the world and those elders like bhIShma, drONa and others who
stood with him.

The infuriated narasimha being iMdra (sarvEshavara) and being inside

amsha of iMdra brought victory to the pAMDava-s. Being inside me who is


the incarnation of prANa of the name iMdra (iMdra nAmaka prANa) got
me victory; He is only pradyumna of the name iMdra.
The same narasimha has come as the son of vasudEva, as vAsudEva
kruShNa; He is only vAsudEva the giver of liberation.
During praLaya He is the destroying force saMkarShaNa who sacrifices
beings in the fire of annihilation of this creation. Being inside
yudhiShThira, the amsha of yamadharma who sacrifices sinners in the fire
of hell He was the one who directed the pAMDava-s.
Dwelling inside shaMtanu who was the incarnation of varuNa, He brought
this kuru dynasty to birth. Being inside bhIShma, drONa and others who
executed the task of commander-in-chief owing to the obligation towards
dhuryOdhana, being inside karNa who played commander due to his
friendship with dhuryOdhana and dwelling within shalya who took the role
of leader of the army due to his hospitality, it was actually He who led the
kaurava army. It is narasimha who pervades everywhere in the world for
protection as aniruddha.
Dwelling within the amsha of agni, dRuShTadyumna it was He who led our
army. He is the one who is called jAtavEda being inside fire.
He is narAyaNa who knows all creation. Disclosing all Vedas He is the one
who is vEdavyAsa known as jAtavEda and who became our grandfather.
Those people who are contemplative sing the glory of such a narasimha.
Oh the enraged narasimha! Pleased by my penance , by my worship, love
all the five of us in the same way and protect us.
