My greetings to you all. We have seen the fourth slokam of the Five Jewels of Maneesha Panchakam in our previous post of Part 7 of 8. Now, we will see the fifth and final verse of these 5 important slokas. These are recited extempore by the learned man in reply to Lord Shiva.
The Fifth one is as follows:
యత్సౌఖ్యాంబుధి లేశలేశత ఇమే శక్రాదయో నిర్వృతా
యచ్చిత్తే నితరాం ప్రశాంతకలనే లబ్ధ్వా మునిర్నిర్వృతః
యస్మిన్నిత్య సుఖాంబుధౌ గళితధీర్బ్రహ్మైవ న బ్రహ్మవిద్
యః కశ్హిత్ససురేన్ద్ర వందితపదో నూనం మనీషా మమ ||
यत्सौख्याम्बुधि लेशलेशत इमे शक्रादयो निर्वृता
यच्चित्ते नितरां प्रशान्तकलने लब्ध्वा मुनिर्निर्वृतः
यस्मिन्नित्य सुखाम्बुधौ गलितधीर्ब्रह्मैव न ब्रह्मविद्
यः कश्चित्स सुरेन्द्रवन्दितपदो नूनं मनीषा मम ॥
yathsaukhyaambudhi laesalaesatha imae sakraadhayo nirvrithaa
yachchiththae nitharaam prashaanthakalanae labdhvaa munirnirvrithah
yasmin nithya sukhaambudhau galithadheer brahmaiva na brahmavidh
yah kaschit sasuraendhra vandhithapado noonam maneeshaa mama ||
The word meaning is as follows

sukha = the Bliss Supreme,
na brahmavid= is not a mere knower of the Brahman, but
brahmaiva = is the Brahman itself.

pado = his feet are
vanditha = worthy to be worshiped by
surendra = by the Indra (and all other gods).

The Purport or Bhaava
The Self (Brahman) is the eternal ocean of Supreme Bliss. A minute fraction of this Bliss Supreme is adequate to satisfy the Indra and other celestials. Only by meditating with a perfectly calm mind on this Bliss Supreme, and not by any other special means, the sages experience adequate fulfillment. Whose intellect is ever unified with the eternal ocean of this Bliss Supreme, he is not a mere knower of the Brahman, but he is the Brahman itself. Such a person, whosoever he may be, and no matter at all, his feet are worthy to be worshiped by the Indra and all other gods. Definite, this is my firm understanding.
