NAGALOCHANA Author K S Nagabhushana recorded dedication of the volume in Kannada language as follows:
ಜನ್ಮವಿತ್ತವರಿಗೆ ಜತೆ ಬಾಳಿದವರಿಗೆ ಜಗದ ಶಕ್ತಿಗೆ
– ಕೆ. ಎಸ್. ನಾಗಭೂಷಣ
Its English version is as follows:
Are we grateful to everything we come across on earth – movable and immovable lives, machines, natural and artificial substances, teaching us important lessons in life – which are contemporary to our existence?
Gratitude alone can make us successful, enable us to be happy and be the guide to those who follow us.
As such, I dedicate this humble creation to my parents, relatives and friends who lived with me, and the super power of the universe.
Late S L Sharma, who was recognized as the king of canvas during his time, has remained with and supported the author in all the successes and failures.
An artist, scribe, and an ardent devotee of Goddess Sri Lalitha, he was known for his in-depth knowledge of Hindu scriptures.
He spent most of his time painting Lalitha. Sri Lalitha Stotra scripted by him is regularly chanted during daily prayers in the family home of the author K S Nagabhushana.
S L Sharma had a small studio for his living. He and the author used to have long conversations about Soundarya Lahari. Author considered him as both guru and friend.
S L Sharma conveyed his best wishes to NAGALOCHANA in a poetic form in Kannada language, as follows:
ಅಕ್ಕರೆಯಲೋದಿದೆನು ನಾಗಲೋಚನ ವಚನ l
ಮಿಕ್ಕು ಸಂತಸವಾಯ್ತು ವಿಷಯ ಪರಿಶೀಲನ ll 1 ll
ಬದುಕಿನನುಭವವೆಲ್ಲ ಬಲು ರಂಜನೀಯವಿದೆ l
ಬರವಣಿಗೆ ಪ್ರೌಢವೂ ಶೈಲಿ ಬಲು ಸೊಗಸಿದೆ ll 2 ll
ವಿಷಯ ಪ್ರಸ್ತಾವನೆಯ ವಿಸ್ತಾರ ಬಹಳವಿದೆ l
ಹೊಸತು ಹುಡುಕುವ ತುಡಿತ ಗೋಚರಿಸಿದೆ ll 3 ll
ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ ಸಾಂಗತ್ಯ ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷ್ಯ ವಿಷಯಗಳು l
ಗಹನವಾಗಿಹ ತತ್ವ ಶಾಸ್ತ್ರ ಪ್ರಸಂಗಗಳು ll 4 ll
ವಿಜ್ಞಾನ ವ್ಯೋಮಾದಿ ಲೌಕಿಕವೆಲ್ಲವೂ l
ಜೀವನೋದ್ದೇಶದಾ ಪರಮಾರ್ಥ ತತ್ವವೂ ll 5 ll
ಸೂಕ್ತರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಲ್ಲೆ ಅರ್ಥೈಸಿ ಹರ್ಷಿಸಲು l
ಮುತ್ತಿನಂತೆ ಮಾತು ನರ್ತಿಸುತ ನಡೆದಿದೆ ll 6 ll
ಸತ್ಯವಾಗಿಯೂ ವಚನ ಸೊಗಸೆನಿಸಿದೆ l
ಮತ್ತಷ್ಟು ಕವಿತೆಗಳು ಮುನ್ಮುಂದೆ ಬರಲಿ ll 7 ll
ಎತ್ತರೆತ್ತರ ಏರಿ ಖ್ಯಾತಿಯನು ಗಳಿಸಲಿ l
ಮಿತ್ರ, ಶುಭ ಹಾರೈಕೆ ಪ್ರಖ್ಯಾತನಾಗು ll 8 ll
– ಶ್ರೀ. ಲ. ಶರ್ಮ
