Guruvayurappan Bhujangam was written by Kodungallore Kunji Kuttan Thampuran, and he has also translated Mahabharatha into Malayalam language in a simple manner. Due to his expertise in writing work, he is also called as Vyasa of Kerala.
Lord Guruvayurappan is a form of Lord Krishna and he contains wonderful forms. In the great epic Narayaneeyam which was written by the Malayalam scholar Sri Narayana Bhattatiri, Guruvayurappan was very much praised, and the details about the various avatars of Lord Vishnu were also mentioned. Lord Guruvayurappan had appeared in the form of a small boy and resided in the homes of the 17th century saints like Kururamma and Vilwa Mangala Swamigal. Still now he is ready to dwell in our homes also, in the form of a handsome boy, based on our utmost devotion on him.
The beautiful contents present in the Guruvayurappan Bhujangam are as follows:-
