Dhruva was the son of Raja Uttanapada and Suniti. The story of Dhruva occurs in many puranas including the Vishnu Purana and Bhagavata Purana. The story goes thus that once due to unkind treatment given to him by his father's other wife Suruchi, Dhruva quit the city and repaired to a neighboring thicket with a desire to acquire a position not enjoyed by any other. As a result of his penance, when Dhruva was blessed with the sight of the lord, he requested for the understanding to place his praises at the lord's feet. And as soon as the lord touched Dhruva, he began singing the praise of the Lord. This praise of Mahavishnu sung by Dhruva as per the Vishnu Purana is as follows:[1]

Meaning

  • I venerate him whose forms are earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intellect, ahankara and primeval nature.
  • Salutation to that being whose form is pure, subtle, all-pervading, who surpasses nature, void of qualities.
  • The one who is supreme over all the elements and all the objects of sense, over intellect, over Pradhana and Purusha, I have taken refuge with that pure form of yours, oh supreme, who is one with Brahman, and who is the being that transcends all the world.
  • Salutation to that form which, pervading and supporting all, is designated as Brahman, unchangeable, and contemplated by yogis.
  • You are the Purusha with a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, a thousand feet, who traverse the universe, and pass ten inches beyond its contact.
  • Whatever has been, or is to be, you are that, Oh Purushottama. From you sprang Virat, Svarat, Samrat, and Adhipurusha.
  • The lower, upper, and middle parts of the earth are not independent of you. From you is all this universe, all that has been, and that shall be.
  • All this world is in you, assuming this universal form. From you is yajna derived, and all oblations, and curds, and ghee, and animals of either class (domestic or wild).
  • From you the Rigveda, the Sama, the metres of the Vedas, and the Yajurveda are born. Horses and cows having teeth in one jaw only, proceed from you; and from you come goats, sheep and deer. Brahmans sprang from your mouth; warriors from your arms; Vaishyas from your thighs; and Shudras from your feet. From your eyes come the sun; from your ears, the wind; and from your mind, the moon.
  • The vital airs (come) from your central vein; and fire from your mouth: the sky from your navel; and heaven from your head.
  • The regions from your ears; the earth from your feet. All this world was derived from you. As the wide-spreading Nyagrodha (Indian fig) tree is compressed in a small seed, so, at the time of dissolution, the whole universe is comprehended in you as its germ.
  • As the Nyagrodha germinates from the seed, and becomes first a shoot, and then rises into loftiness, so the created world proceeds from you, and expands into magnitude. As the bark and leaves of the Plantain tree are to be seen in its stem, so are you the stem of the universe, and all things are visible in you.
  • The faculties of the intellect, that are the cause of pleasure and of pain, abide in you as one with all existence; but the sources of pleasure and of pain, singly or blended, do not exist in you, who are exempt from all qualities. Salutation to you, the subtle rudiment, which, being single, becomes manifold.
  • Salutation to you, the atman of existent things, identical with the great elements. You, imperishable, are beheld in spiritual knowledge as perceptible objects, as nature, as Purusha, as the world, as Brahman, as Manu, by internal contemplation. But you are in all, the element of all; you are all, assuming every form.
  • All is from you, and you are from yourself. I salute you, universal atman; glory be to you. You are one with all things; oh lord of all, you are present in all things.
  • What can I say to you ? you know all that is in the heart, oh atman of all, sovereign lord of all creatures, origin of all things.
  • You, who are all beings, knows the desires of all creatures. The desire that I cherished has been gratified, lord, by you: my devotions have been crowned with success, in that I have seen you.[1]
