Verse 10:

விடந்திளைக் கும்அர வல்குல்மென்
    கூந்தல் பெருமணத்தின்
வடந்திளைத் குங்கொங்கை புல்கிய
    மன்மதன் வண்கதலிக்
கடந்திளைத் துக்கழு நீர்புல்கி
    யொல்கிக் கரும்புரிஞ்சித்
தடந்திளைக் கும்புனல் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (10)


He is the Sambandan of Sanbai
Who guards the fertile watered
Lands where sugarcane stalks
Drink the lush of plantain grove-silt;
Is not He, so beautiful, & ravishing
Manmatha like  that mind churner
That haunts the venom'd cobra hood-of-
Genita, soft locks, bosoms indulgent on conjugation.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 9:


ஆறுமண் டப்பண்டு செஞ்சொல்
    நடாத்தி யமண்முழுதும்
பாறுமண் டக்கண்டு சைவ
    சிகாமணி பைந்தடத்த
சேறுமண் டச்சங்கு செங்கயல்
    தேமாங் கனிசிதறிச்
சாறுமண் டும்வயல் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (9)




Sambandan of Sanbai once left out
The leaves in river Vaigai that swam
Up the river; He bade, by indirection.
The vultures to peck at the mutinous
Flesh of Samanas. He is the adorned crest of Saivam.
He guards the lands girt with fields
Green where slush fertile, chanks,
Red fish and coconuts and mangoes succulent abound.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 8:


எண்டலைக் குந்தலை வன்கழல்
    சூடியெ னுள்ளம்வெள்ளங்
கண்டலைப் பத்தன் கழல்தந்த
    வன்கதிர் முத்தநத்தம்
விண்டலைப் பத்தியி லோடும்
    விரவி மிளிர்பவளம்
தண்டலைக் குங்கடற் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (8)


He is the sovereign of all eight aits.
Wearing his holy feet, on my crest, my heart
Flooded with joy, is palpitant. He has offered
His feet to my hands. He is Sambandan
Of Sanbai where luminous conches
Run amuck thrown up by waves rapid;
Where Seas beat on sea-side spread climbers
Studded with lustrous coral spray overspread.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse 7:


புண்டலைக் குஞ்சரப் போர்வையர்
    கோயிற் புதவடைக்கும்
ஒண்டலைத் தண்டமிழ்க் குண்டா
    சனியும்பர் பம்பிமின்னுங்
கொண்டலைக் கண்டுவண்
    டாடப் பெடையொடுங்
தண்டலைக் குண்டகழ்ச் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (7)


He sang Tevaram songs to close
The threshold gates of the temple
In Tiru Maraikkaatu where abides lord
Wearing the wounded-templed tusker-hyde;
He struck down, lightning like, all Samanas.
Seeing the in-gathering clouds aflash,
Beetles dance, storks she and He in stupor
Of joy in groves near mosts remain at Sanbai, He guards.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 6:



அந்தமுந் தும்பிற வித்துயர்
    தீர வரனடிக்கே
பந்தமுந் துந்தமிழ் செய்த
    பராபரன் பைந்தடத்தேன்
வந்துமுந் தும்நந்தம் முத்தங்
    கொடுப்ப வயற்கயலே
சந்தமுந் தும்பொழிற் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (6)


For the ills of birth to flee, bound to
The holy feet of the Supreme of supreme,
Indicting Tamizh-Vedas as fresh melic honey
In sweetness, the Sambandan of Sanbai
Guards the land where conches grow,
Pearls from Oysters roll out, beside
The sandal trees abounding
In the arborets surrounding the fields.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse 5:


ஆறதே றுஞ்சடை யானருள்
    மேவ வவனியர்க்கு
வீறதே றுந்தமி ழால்வழி
    கண்டவன், மென்கிளிமாந்
தேறல்கோ தித்துறு சண்பகந்
    தாவிச் செழுங்கமுகின்
தாறதே றும்பொழிற் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே.  (5)


He paved the way through means of
The triumphant Tevaram Songs
For those of this vast collection graced by
Siva bearing Ganga on His matted locks
He holds fort at Sanbai, in goodly bond
Where bright parakeets plunder mango
Blooms? honey and where Champak creepers
Leap over frond-rich Areca in bunched arborets.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 4:


கள்ளம் பொழில்நனி பள்ளித்
    தடங்கட மாக்கியஃதே
வெள்ளம் பணிநெய்த லாக்கிய
    வித்தகன், வெண்குருகு
புள்ளொண் தவளப் புரிசங்கொ
    டலாக் கயலுகளத்
தள்ளந் தடம்புனல் சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (4)

He is but Sambandan of Sanbai
Who metamorphosed Nanipalli
Of toddy-rich lovely arborets
Into a dreary vast desert at first
And then into a Neytal* tract
Of sea-board with love swollen; and he
Guards the water?d lands where white storks
And frogs sound conch-like and fishes frisk about.


(*The sea and sea shore areas)

Verse 3:


குவளைக் கருங்கண் கொடியிடை
    துன்பந் தவிரவன்று
துவளத் தொடுவிடந் தீர்த்த
    தமிழின் தொகைசெய்தவன்
திவளக் கொடிக்குன்ற மாளிகைச்
    சென்னியின் வாய்த்
தவளப் பிறைதங்கு சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (3)


He of Sanbai, verily Sambandan
Who cured the woe of nenuphar-dark
Eyed, liana-waisted maiden, annulling
The venom to naught, who sang
The sweet Tevaram Tamizh Songs
And who guards ever the mountain ? high
Mansions draped over by luminous creepers,
Whose turrets offer rest awhile to the wheeling white crescent argent.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse 2:


கொங்குதங் குங்குஞ்சி கூடாப்
    பருவத்துக் குன்றவில்லி
பங்குதங் கும்மங்கை தன்னருள்

பொங்குவங் கப்புனல் சேர்த
    புதுமணப் புன்னையின்கீழ்ச்

Scare the pollen rich tuft of his has grown
But well before he secured the grace
Of mother Uma on Siva's left.
He is Sambandan holding for tat Sanbai
Over the fields where chanks grow? neath
The fragrant Sura Punnai tree
Wafted with breeze from off the river
Seas beating fresh vigorous waves.

Arunachala Siva.

The next one by Nambi Andaar Nambi, is ALudaiya Pillaiyar Tiruch Chanpai Virutham.  This describes
Srikazhi of Jnana Sambandha Murti.  This contains 11 verses.

Verse 1:


பாலித் தெழில்தங்கு பாரகம்
    உய்யப் பறிதலையோர்
மாலுற் றழுந்த அவதரித்
    தோன்மணி நீர்க்கமலத்
தாலித் தலர்மிசை யன்னம்
    நடப்ப, வணங்கிதென்னாச்
சாலித் தலைபணி சண்பையர்
    காவலன் சம்பந்தனே. (1)


For this Earth of immense elegance to prosper
Attaining grace, for Samanas to go bemused
And submit to Sivam, came incarnate
Tiru Jnana Sambandan of Sanbai
Where limpid water holding lotus cups
Stalk in delight and swans swan about
Upon them, and paddy ripe in sheaves
Bend and genufleat as divine maidens.

Arunachala Siva.

The teachings of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi / Re: Our Bhagavan-Stories
« on: December 18, 2015, 07:02:29 AM »



That is again one way of looking at the mystery of Arunachala. It baffles people, both believers and non-believers.  And that is true.  There are a lot of particles whose nature and structure
science is yet to unfathom.  In the Swiss-French border, people are working at 'discovery' of God's
Particle or Higgs Particle, the primary Source, from which the entire universe took its birth. 
This project is called Large Hadron Collider Experiment and they have so far failed.  Stephen Hawking
the author of the famous science books [not fiction], like the Brief History of Time, the illustrious
Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in Cambridge, has said that god's particle can never be unravelled.

Because to search for God outside is a waste becaue the god is within you.  That is why Brahma
Jnanis have found the universe within them and if they have done it, why not Arunachala can
contain the entire universe, with all its riches and pleasures. [Arunachala Mahatmyam].

Bhagavan Ramana said that Arunachala is the axis of the earth and there must be some mysterious
hill on the other side of the earth, to balance.  Major Chadwick tried to find out from some
books on geography, but could not succeed.  But now after 60 years, some scientists have found
out one Mount Pacchu, near Peru in South America, which is very powerful religiously as per the
aborigines of that place.  I have written sometime back about the latitude and longitude details of
this Mount Pacchu, in the Forum.

Jnanis words never fail.

Gaudapada Karika:

ALATA SHANTI - can be understood in two different ways.
And that is how Sankara interprets.

FIRE - Thoughts emanating from the mind.
THE BURNING STICK - Mind.

Another way:

FIRE - Thought emanating from the mind.
THE BURNING STICK - Mind.
The QUENCHED FIRE WHERE STICK ALONE REMAINS - the Self.

The Stick is just is.  It has no form, no mind, no thoughts.

Bhagavan Ramana and earlier Sankara said in Vivekachoodamani, that mano-nasam is moksham.
Staying in thoughtless state permanently is liberation.

If the joy of deep sleep is permanent, why is it that we experience it only in deep sleep and not in waking
state and dream?


That same joy is also present in the waking and dream states.  Only it is hidden by differences of Vrittis
(mental modifications).  Hidden by these Vrittis, the presence of the same joy is not perceived by
ignorant men.

General Discussion / Sleep and Recuperation -
« on: December 17, 2015, 03:27:06 PM »
This is an article by M.R. Kothandaram, in April - June 2015 of Mountain Path.

*

Sleep is very important for the recovery of the body and mind which get tired due to the activities of
the day.  The various organs of the body function due to the life energy or prana shakti flowing
through them.  This life energy is very subtle unlike the energy coming from the intake of carbo-
hydrates which is the physical energy required for our activities.  When we are sick, the life energy
is low because all the energy is utilized for fighting the infection. That is why we feel weak and we need
to rest.  If we are active even during sickness, the life energy will not be sufficient to fight the infection
and thus the recovery will be slow.  That is why the doctor advises us to take rest during sickness.

A major portion of the life energy (about 75%) is taken up by the body for the purpose of maintaining
the metabolic routine like digestion, respiration, transporting nutrients to where they are needed,
elimination of waste products, cell building and conversion of food into juice, blood, tissues, bone,
marrow and vital fluid  -- in that order. In this manner continuous conversion and manufacture are
constantly going on within the body which requires a lot of life energy.

Sri Bhagavan in a very miraculous way turned me into a prolific writer of Telugu books about Him and
His teachings. These were published during the period 1994-2014. Most of them are translations which
have been generously patronized by Telugu-reading devotees, which have been generously patronized
by Telugu-reading devotees. Of the ten books I was privileged to write, I will make a mention of three,
all biographies of Sri Bhagavan.  The first of these is a translation of Self Realization by B.V.Narasimha
Swamy, into Telugu with the title Athma Sakshatkaram.  This book fetched me an award from the
Sahitya  Academy (National Academy of Letters) in 2002. The second is Sri Ramana Leela in Telugu
by Krishna Bhikshu which I translated into English under the same title.  Both the translations are Sri
Ramanasramam Publications.  The third book is an original biography in Telugu, with the title Ramaneeyam,
written and published by me in 2012.    This book incorporates information about Sri Bhagavan not found
in any other Telugu biography on Sri Bhagavan and hence it has become very popular. These three and
other works have given me immense satisfaction and restored my self esteem in the sense that my life,
after all has not been entirely useless.
