Prayer/class hours

MORNING PRAYERS AND CLASS HOURS

Each academic day starts with the rendering of the prayer song ‘Daiva Dasakam’ (Ten verses to God), a prayer song written by Sree Narayana Guru. The beauty of this prayer is that, there is no mention of any religion or any particular God in it. The God here refers to the God of everyone and hence it can be sung by all irrespective of their “caste, creed or race” as envisioned by the Guru. The staff and students stand in reverential silence during this melodious rendering through the public address system.

There are five working days a week, and each working day has two sessions. The morning session is from 10 am to 1 pm, and the afternoon session is from 1.40 pm to 3.40 pm. In between the two sessions there will be a noon interval of forty minutes from 1 pm to 1.40 pm. Besides lecture classes, there will be Seminars, Tutorials, Group discussions and Counselling. The College office function every day from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm except Sunday and all declared public holidays.

Daiva Dasakam – Ten Verses To God

The universal prayer by Sree Narayana Guru

Daivame! Kaathukolkangu
Kaividathingu njangale
Naavikan Nee bhavabdhikko
raavi vanthoni ninpadam.

Onnonnaayenniyennitho-
ttennum porulodungiyal
Ninnidum dhrukkupolullam
Ninnilspandamaakanam

Anna vastrathi muttaathe
Thannu rakshichu njhangale
Dhanyarakunna nee yonnu –
Thane njhangalkku thampuran.

Aazhiyum thirayum kaattum
Aazhavum pole njhangalum
Maayayum nin mahimayum
Neeyaumennullilaakanam.

Neeyallo shrushtiyum shrashtaa-
Vayathum shrushtijaalavum

Neeyallo daivame, shrushtti-
Kkulla samagriyayathum

Neeyallo maayayum maaya –
Viyum maayavinodanum
Neeyallo mayaye neekki-
Saayoojjyam nalkumaryannum

Nee satyam njhaanamaanandam
Nee thanne varthamaanavum
Bhoothavum bhaaviyum vera-
llothum mozhiyumorkil nee

Akavum puravum thingum
Mahimaavaarnna ninpadam
Pukazhthunnu njangalangu
Bhaghavane, jaikkuka

Jayikkuka mahadeva,
Deenavanaparayana
Jaikukka chithananda
Dayasindo jayikkuka,

Aazhamerum nin mahassa –
Mazhiyil njhangalaakave
Aazhanam vazhanam nithyam
Vaazhanam vaazhanam sukham
