Dear Nagaraj,


See this of Manikkavachagar, in tirusadhakam, verse 1.



வெள்ளம் தாழ் விரிசடையாய் விடையாய் விண்ணோர்
பெருமானே எனக்கேட்டு வெட்ட நெஞ்சாய்
பள்ளம் தாழ் உறு புனலில் கீழ் மேல் ஆகப்
பதைத்து உருகும் அவ நிற்க என்னை ஆண்டாய்க்கு
உள்ளம்தான் நின்று உச்சி அளவும் நெஞ்சாய்
உருகாதால் உடம்பு எல்லாம் கண்ணாய் அண்ணா
வெள்ளம்தான் பாயாதால் நெஞ்சம் கல் ஆம்
கண் இணையும் மரம் ஆம் தீ வினையினேற்கே. 25


Arunachala Siva.

Give us this day our daily bread

For Thine is the kingdom,

Dear Nagaraj,

There is another Bible verse which says:

Those who are labored and heavy laden, come unto Me, I shall give thee rest.

Sri Bhagavan also says in Arunachala Padigam, Verse 9: Why should I hold the world on my head. For you what is a big
load? It is enough. You hold it and let me be free.

I thank you, LORD, with all my heart;
I sing praise to you before the gods,
I face your holy Temple
bow down, and praise your name
because of your constant love and
 faithfulness,
because you have shown that your
 name and your commands are supreme.
You answered me when I called you; 
 with your strength you strengthened me.

All the kings in the world will praise you, LORD
 because they have heard your promises.
They will sing your great glory.
Even though you are so high above,
  you care for the lowly,
  and the proud cannot hide from you.

When I am surrounded by troubles,
  you keep me safe.
You oppose my angry enemies
 and save me by your power,
You will do everything you have promised;
LORD, your love is eternal,
Complete with the work that you have begun.

The Lord spoke to me. "Mortal man", he said, "Why do the people of Israel repeat this proverb. Time goes by and predictions come to
nothing. Now tell them what I, Sovereign  Lord, have to say about that.  I will put an end to that proverb. It won't be repeated in
Israel any more. Tell them instead: Time has come and the predictions are coming true!

Ezekiel 13, Verses 21 to 23)

The Lord spoke to me, 'Mortal man, the Israelites think that your visions and prophecies are about the distant future. So tell them
that I, the Sovereign Lord am saying: There will be no more delay. What I have said will be done. I, the Sovereign Lord, have spoken!

Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands,
as it is fit in the Lord.

Husbands, love [your] wives, and
be not bitter against them.

Children, obey [your] parents in all things:
for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.

Fathers, provoke not your children [to anger,]
lest they be discouraged.

Servants, obey in all things [your] masters according to the flesh;
not with eyeservice, as menpleasers;
but in singleness of heart, fearing God:

And whatsoever ye do, do [it] heartily,
as to the Lord, and not unto men;

Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive
the reward of the inheritance:
for ye serve the Lord Christ.

But he that doeth wrong shall receive
for the wrong which he hath done: and
there is no respect of persons.

Masters, give unto [your] servants that which is just
and equal; knowing that ye also have a Master in heaven.

Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with
thanksgiving;

Withal praying also for us, that God
would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the
mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:

That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

Let your speech [be] alway with grace, seasoned with
salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

Happy are those who are concerned for the poor;
the Lord will help them when are in trouble.
The Lord will protect them and  preserve their lives;
He will make them happy to the power of their enemies.
The Lord will help them when they are sick.
and will restore them back to health.

I said, 'I have sinned against you, LORD;
 be merciful to me and heal me.
My enemies say cruel things about me.
They want me to die and be forgotten.
Those who come o see me are not sincere;
and gather bad news about me
They say, 'He is fatally ill,
 he will never leave his bed again.'
Even my best friend , the one I trusted most,
 the one who shared my food,
has turned against me,.

Be merciful to me Lord, and restore my health,
  and I will pay my enemies back;
They will not triumph over me,
 and I will now that you are pleased with me;
You will help me, because I do what is right;
  You will keep me in your presence for ever.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel!
Praise him now and for ever!

  Amen!  Amen!

Dear Nagaraj,

See this unfamiliar quote:

Some of the people of Jerusalem said, 'Isn't the man the authorities are trying to kill? Look! He is talking in public. And they
say nothing against him!  Can it be that they really know that he is the Messiah? But when the Messiah comes, no one will
know where he is from. And we all know where this man comes from.'

As Jesus taught in the Temple,  he said in a loud voice, 'Do you really know me and  know where I am from? I have not come
on my own authority. He who sent me, however, is truthful. You do not know him. But I know him because I come from him
and he sent me,

John 8 25-29.

He who sent me, however, is truthful. You do not know him. But I know him because I come from him and he sent me.

Who is "him" in the above quote?

how can we conclude sex of the unknown?

So god or father as jesus quotes is a human being and sitting in some remote planet?

Cannot understand how can we derive god is human in this 21st century ?  :)

Dear prasanth,

'he' here refers to the Father. Jesus Christ is  called son of God. Father is God. It is like Skanda and Siva. Whether he is up in
the heaven or here in our Heart  that only ardent Sadhkas know.

Shiva is male, Parvati is female
Vishnu is male, Lakshmi is female
Ardhanareeshwara is both male and female
Narasimha is half man half animal
matsya avatara fish
Kurma avatara turtle
varaja avatara is boar
Ganesha has elephant head
hanuman is monkey
and so on...

what is important is to assimilate the essence. The gender is not in Him or Her, it is ones own mind.

Dear Nagaraj,

I do not know whether this is a Christian quote.

Jesus called his twelve disciples together and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and every
sickness. These are the names of the twelve apostles. first, Simon (called Peter), and his brother Andrew, James and his brother
John, the sons of Zebedee; Philip and Bartholomew; James son of Alphaeus and Thaddaeus; Simon the Patriot and Judas Iscariot,
who betrayed Jesus.

You are to go the lost sheep of Israel was His command.

1. On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb.
2. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3. but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them.
5. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead?
6. He is not here; He has risen! Remember how He told you, while He was still with you in Galilee:
7. "The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.""
8. Then they remembered His words.

Jesus said to her:  Mary!

She turned towards him and said in Hebrew, Rabboni!  (Teacher)

Do not hold on to me, Jesus told her, 'because, I have not yet gone back to the Father. But go to my brothers and tell them
that I am returning to him who is my Father and their Father, my God  and their God.'

So Mary Magdalene went and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord and related to them what he had told to her.

Dear Nagaraj,

Jonah's Prayer:

In my distress, O Lord, I called to you,
  and you answered me.
From deep in the world of dead
 I cried for help, and you heard me.
You threw me down into the depths
 to the very bottom of sea,
where waters were all round me
 and your mighty waves rolled over me
I thought I had been banished from your presence
 and would never see your holy temple again
The water came over me and choked me;
 the sea covered me completely.
 and the seaweed was wrapped around my head.
I went down to the very roots of the mountains
  into the land whose gates lock shut  for ever
But you, O Lord my God,
 brought me back from the depth alive,.
When I felt my life slipping away.
 then Lord I prayed to You
and in your holy temple you heard me.

(Johnah 2. 1-7)

This is how it should feel to read anything in its own language. As primary language of bible is English, we are able to feel that pulse and quickly resonate directly in the heart, similarly, should one be slightly familiar with samskrit or tamizh in order to taste the same ambrosia as thus.

As Jesus was coming near Jericho, there was a blind man sitting by the road, begging. When he heard the crowd passing by,
he asked, 'What is this?'

'Jesus of Nazareth is passing by', they told him.

He cried out, 'Jesus! Son of David! Take pity on me!'

The people in the front scolded him and told him to be quiet. But he shouted even more loudly, 'Son of David! Take pity on me!'

So Jesus stopped and ordered the blind man to be brought to him. When he came near him, Jesus asked him, 'What do you want
from me to do for you?'

'Sir', answered he, 'I want to see again!'

Jesus said to him, 'Then see! Your faith has made you well.'

At  once he was able to see, and he followed Jesus, giving thanks to God. When the crowd saw it, they all praised God.

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time
[are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which
shall be revealed in us.

For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth
for the manifestation of the sons of God.

For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly,
but by reason of him who hath subjected [the same]
in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be
delivered from the bondage of corruption into the
glorious liberty of the children of God.

Listen! Wisdom is calling out,

At the entrance to the city,
 besides the gates, she calls,
'I appeal to you mankind;
I call everyone on the earth.
Are you immature? Learn to be mature.
Are you foolish? Learn to have sense.
Listen to my excellent words;
 all I tell you is right.
What I say is the truth;
 lies are hateful to me.
Everything I say is true;
 nothing is  false or misleading.
To the man with insight, it is all clear;
 to the well informed, it is all plain.
Choose my instruction instead of sliver;
 choose knowledge rather than the finest gold."

Honoring the birth of the Lord Jesus and this Beautiful and Magical Holyday

(http://www.graphicsgrotto.com/glittergraphics/flowers/images/gflowers67.gif)

In the countryside close by there were shepherds out in the fields keeping guard over their sheep during the watches of the night.
An angel of the Lord stood over them and the glory of the Lord shone round them. They were terrified,
but the angel said, 'Do not be afraid. Look, I bring you news of great joy, a joy to be shared by the whole people.
Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.
And here is a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.'
And all at once with the angel there was a great throng of the hosts of heaven, praising God with the words:
Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace for those he favours.

So they hurried away and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger.
When they saw the child they repeated what they had been told about him,
and everyone who heard it was astonished at what the shepherds said to them.
As for Mary, she treasured all these things and pondered them in her heart.
And the shepherds went back glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as they had been told.

HE is like a bush in the desert,
 which grows in dry wilderness,
 on salty ground where nothing else grows.
Nothing good ever happens to him.

But I will bless the person
 who puts his trust in me.
He is like a tree growing near a stream
  and sending roots to the water.
It is not afraid when hot weather comes,

 it has no worries when there is no rain;

that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish,

For God didn't send his Son into the world to judge the world,
but that the world should be saved through him.
He who believes in him is not judged.
He who doesn't believe has been judged already,
because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

Luke 6.20-26.

Jesus looked at his disciples and said:

Happy are you poor;
 the Kingdom of God is yours!
Happy are you who are hungry now;
 you will be filled!
Happy are you who weep now:
 You will laugh!

Happy are you when people hate you, reject you, insult you, and say that you are evil, all because of the Son of Man!

Be glad when that happens, and dance for joy, because a great reward is kept for you in heaven. For their ancestors
did the very same things to be the prophets.

But how terrible for you who are rich now;
  you will go hungry!
How terrible for you who laugh now;
  you will mourn and weep!

How terrible when all people speak well of you, Their ancestors said the very same things about the false prophets.

Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head

Jesus was making His last journey, to the city of Jerusalem. It was a long trip, and they needed to stop for the night a few times along the way.
 As they approached a town in Samaria (Samaritans were enemies of the Jews) some of Jesus’ friends went ahead to prepare for His arrival. But the Samaritans there would not welcome Jesus, because He was headed for Jerusalem. The disciples thought the town should be punished and asked Jesus if He would call down fire from heaven to destroy the town. Jesus told them that that is not how He does things, they would just go to another town.
 When one person along the way said he would follow Jesus wherever He went, Jesus warned him it wouldn’t be a glamorous path. He said, “Foxes have dens, birds have their nests, but the Son of Man (God made flesh) has nowhere to lay His head.”

Spiritual living means giving up the 'Ego'(Head).The words of Lord Jesus always go straight to the Heart like a shaft of lightning that penetrates Rocky hard ignorance, breaking it to smithereens.

Beyond the bows, and mistletoes,
The tree with presents wrapped below,
There's more to this than you had ever thought?
Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?

[Chorus:]
What is Christmas?
If there never was a Savior wrapped in a manger.
What is Christmas without Christ?

Remember how the story goes,
God's gift was wrapped in swaddling clothes,
Beneath the star, one great and holy night.
The shepherds heard the angels sing,
The wise man brought an offering,
Peace on Earth began in Bethelethm
Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?

[Chorus:]
What is Christmas?
If there never was a Savior wrapped in a manger.
What is Christmas?
If the angels never sang 'Glory to the new born king?'
What is Christmas without Christ?

There'd be no gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria
In excelsis deo

What is Christmas?
If there never was a Savior wrapped in a manger.
What is Christmas without Christ?
This is Christmas,
It’s all about the Savior wrapped in a manger.
This is Christmas,
Because of Jesus Christ!
This is Christmas,
Because of Christ!
Because of Christ!


Wishing you all a very happy and blessed Christmas!!

Jesus said :"I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". Highlighting the "I" gives it the true meaning which Bhagawan also said. But those who wish to run business interpreted it differently :)

Dear Sri Sanjay, I agree with You. I read Bible before,and Jesus was my first love,how to say. But church interpretation of Bible was always strange and wrong. Only after reading Bhagavan's teachings i realised what Jesus tryed to say all the way. Those teachings are completely in line with Bhagavan's. With love and prayers,

This is the first verse of Tayumanavar's collected works:

What is it, which is
Uncircumscribed Effulgence,
Perfect Bliss,
Divine-Love Filled --

What is it, which willed
To contain the countless universes
In boundless space
And there flourishes as Life of life, -

What is it, which stood
Transcending thought and word,

What is it, which remained
As the ever contentious object
Of countless faiths claiming,
''This, my God,'' ''This, our God''--

What is it, which exists as
Omnipresent,
Omnipotent
Love-filled
and Eternal -

What is it, which knows
No limits of
Night and day -

That indeed is what is agreeable to thought,
That indeed is what fills all space in silence.

That indeed is what we in meekness worship.


Arunachala Siva.

The Heirs Elect of Love; whose Names belong
Unto The everlasting life of Song;

Of This unbounded Name build your warm Nest.

Save me from death, because I am loyal to you.

Save me, for I am your servant and I trust in You.

I am amazed each time I find that these two great texts have so much in common. From Gita and John 8:58 below. Lord explaining "before Sun God" and Jesus saying "before Abraham".

In Gita (4:4):

aparaḿ bhavato janma
paraḿ janma vivasvataḥ
katham etad vijānīyāḿ
tvam ādau proktavān iti


Arjuna said: The sun-god Vivasvān is senior by birth to You. How am I to understand that in the beginning You instructed this science to him?

Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt
love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do
good to them that hate you, and pray for them which
despitefully use you, and persecute you;

That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for
he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and
sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not
even the publicans the same?

And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others?] do not even
the publicans so?

Be ye therefore perfect, even as
your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

My Armor


O conquering God! no other prize I seek,
Than to submit with all my heart to Thee;
Of victories th’ obedient man shall speak
Through all eternity.
If now a soldier’s weapon I can wield,
If valiantly like him the foe I face,
I also long to sing upon the field,
As sang the glorious Virgin of all grace.
Thou mak’st the chords to vibrate of"Thy lyre."
That lyre, O Jesus! is "my loving heart;"
To sing Thy mercies is that heart’s desire.
How sweet, how strong, how dear, Thou art.

With radiant smile, Thou Spouse, my heart’s Delight,
I go to meet all foes from hell’s dark land;
And singing I shall die, upon the field of fight,
"My weapons in my hand."

Dear Devotees,

I received this beautiful message by Sri Ravi to be shared with all the wonderful hearts hearts here.

HOLY IMAGE OF AN ATMA GNANI AS A GIFT FOR THE 43RD SWATHI POOJA

The meditation on the form of Sri Satguru brings clarity This is one of the teachings from saint Thirumoolar. The worship and meditation on the forms of gnanis who had realized the formless consciousness within is considered as a great meditation for receiving the blessings of gnanis and to progress in spiritual sadhana.
 
So, for remembering the forms of many Brahma gnanis and to receive their blessings, we are sending a graceful picture of one great Brahma gnani each month along with the swathi pooja letter from January 2014 onwards with a brief note about the gnanis on the back side of the photo.
 
Devotees are requested to create one new album called the pictures of Brahma gnanis and preserve the pictures of Brahma gnanis in this album like a great treasure and worship them and progress in their sadhana towards enlightenment.
 
For this month swathi pooja, we are sending the picture of the great Brahma gnani Lord Jesus.


~ Sri Sundaram, attendant of Sri Annamalai Swami.

More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings,
knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character,
 and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame,
 because God's love has been poured into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

Romans 5:3-5

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed
; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus,
 so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.

Corinthians 4:8-10

Title: Why doesn't God answer my prayers?
Post by: Nagaraj on March 27, 2014, 07:00:24 PM
Why doesn't God answer my prayers?

Does God really mean it when He says He will give us what we ask for? Bible texts come to our minds, such as Matthew 7:7, "Ask, and it will be given to you"...  Will He really answer when we call?   Isaiah 65:24: "Before you call I will answer, while you are still speaking, I will hear."

Why at times does it appear that God ignores us when we pray to Him, asking Him to help when we have a serious problem? Many have prayed for God to intervene and solve a problem that they are struggling with, but sometimes God?s apparent answer is silence.

God knows what?s best

Even when we feel that God is not answering our prayers, you can always know God is a God of love. The Bible tells us He loves us:
 
John 3:16. '"For God so LOVED the world".......
Jeremiah 31:3, "I have loved thee with an everlasting love."....

God created us and knows infinitely more than we know. He knows what is best for us, and what would not be good for us. If you have children, when they were very small, sometimes they asked for things that would not be good for them, or would harm them. For good reasons sometimes parents do not always give their children what they ask for, when they ask for it. Parents give them what is best for them.

It is the same way in our prayers to God. God gives us what is best for us. We are God?s children and He gives us what is best for us, and at a time when it is best for us. Our lives must be right with God before He can answer our prayers.

Right way

God has certain conditions that must be met before our prayers can be answered. One of the first, is we feel our need of help from Him. Isaiah 44:3 says, ?I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground.? The heart must be open to the Spirit?s influence, or God?s blessing cannot be received. One cannot pour water into a cup that is already full.

Right heart

If we have cherished sins in our lives, and refuse to give them up, or if we are doing things we should not be doing, and are disobeying Him, we cannot expect Him to answer our prayers. He cannot answer our prayers if we have sins in our lives that are unconfessed or if we are hanging on to cherished sins. Also, if we refuse to forgive others who have wronged us, God cannot hear us. (See Matthew 6:12 and Ephesians 4:32).

This is not saying you can earn God?s favor to answer your prayers, it will always be Jesus?s blood that makes us worthy; but we do need to do our part if God is going to work in our lives.

Pray without ceasing

One of the reasons we feel our prayers are not being answered, is because we stop praying. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says it best, "pray without ceasing." Paul is more direct in Philippians 4:6, ?In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.?

In reality, we should not be worried so much about if God hears our prayers ? He does and He does care. What we should be worried about is if because of temptations, hard times, and trials we get discouraged, and give up praying. In Luke 18:1, Jesus, ?spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart."

His time, His will

God is a God of love, and He is interested in every detail of our lives. He hears our prayers, and answers every sincere prayer if we meet His conditions. We must not expect that every answer will be "yes", since we are sinners and do not always ask what is best for us. Sometimes His answer is "No? and sometimes it is "wait." (Hebrew 10:36) We need to end each prayer with, "Not my will but Your will." Even if we are sincerely doing God?s will, and to the best of our ability, following His will for us, He may see that it is best for us not for Him to say "yes" at this time. We must continue trusting Him, regardless of His answer at the moment.

God's timetable is not the same as ours. He knows better than we do when is the best time for our prayers to be answered. (See Hebrews 6 :13-15). God is eternal and does not measure time as we do. 2 Peter 3:8: "Beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day."

In the story of Abraham, God promised a son to Abraham. But Abraham became impatient when Sarah didn?t bear him a son, so he took his wife?s servant as his wife. Abraham tried to solve the problem in his own way and the result was disastrous. We are still seeing the results of his mistake today. God eventually answered his prayer at the time when He saw it was best for Abraham.
 
For God to give us what we ask for, we must ask "according to His will." Faith cannot take the place of "asking according to God's will." 1 John 5:14, "?if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." If you do not ask according to God's will, it is not real faith in God. If God's answer is "No" we still must be willing to wait patiently, and trust God to answer in his own way and in His timing.
 
Trust God, even though you may at the moment feel he is not near and has abandoned you.
 
Isaiah 41:9,10:
"You whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called from its farthest regions, and said to you, You are my servant, I have chosen you, and have not cast you away. Fear not for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
 
If we have faith and sincerely trust God, we will not be concerned as to whether the answer is "wait" or the answer is "no" or "yes." We must just trust, and wait and see if God in His timing will see fit to answer as we have requested, or perhaps He has something better in mind for us. Remember your prayer should end with "Not my will, Lord, but Your will." (Luke 22:42). "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:5,6.

Title: Worry and Anxiety

Worry and Anxiety

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?  Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?  Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ?  "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.  Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these.  If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?  So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'  For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.  Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:25-34

?ஈசன் வந்து லுவையில் மாண்டான்,
எழுந்து யிர்த்தனன் நாள் ஒரு மூன்றில்;
நேசமா மரியா மக்த லேநா
நேரிலே இந்தச் செய்தியைக் கண்டாள்;
தேசத் தீர்!இதன் உட்பொருள் கேளீர்;
தேவர் வந்து நமக்குட் புகுந்தே
நாச மின்றி நமை நித்தங் காப்பார்;
நம்அ கந்தையை நாம்கொன்று விட்டால்.

அன்புகாண் மரியா மக்த லேநா,
ஆவி காணுதிர் யேசு கிறிஸ்து;
முன்பு தீமை வடிவினைக் கொன்றால்
மூன்று நாளினில் நல்லுயிர் தோன்றும்;
பொன்பொ லிந்த முகத்தினிற் கண்டே
போற்று வாள் அந்த நல்லுயிர் தன்னை;
அன்பெனும் மரியா மக்த லேநா
ஆஹ! சாலப் பெருங்களி யிஃதே.

உண்மை யென்ற சிலுவையிற் கட்டி

     "God came down and died on the cross,
And on the third day rose again.
Loving Mary Magadalene
With her own eyes saw these things happen."
SO says the Bible. Listen, O world,
To its true inner meaning.
God will enter our body and save
Us from destruction for ever and ever
If only we destroy our ego.

Look, Love is Mary Magadalene
And the pure Spirit Jesus Christ.
If first we kill the evil in us
A good new life spirings forth full soon.
Beholding its beautiful golden face
Love that is Mary Magadalene
Cherishes and clings to this good life.
Ah! this is happiness indeed.

Fix the mind on the cross of Truth,
And strie it with the nails of Tapas,
The living glory of Jesus Christ
Shines in the body's firmament.
Womanhood, Love eternal, Mary
Is guarded by dharma, Jesus Christ.
The meaning subtle to see is yet
Easy to put into practice this instant.

Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not drive it out?" 20And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.
