When I was a little girl:

Kitty Osborne:

continues...

Lakshmi the cow came sometimes as Bhagavan was her special friend, but usually he went to visit
her in the cowshed.  A rabbit came once I was told  but I never saw it, neither did I see the visiting
crow but on the way and another we all ... human and non human loved His company and to be
in His presence, and be blessed.  Perhaps even the mosquitoes, spiders and beetles were blessed!

I never learned to meditate properly although I deeply admire people who can do it. My parents
could meditate for hours but I always thought of something I just had to tell Bhagavan. Nowadays
what i tend to do is go and sit and the Hall and silently came tell Bhagavan everything He could care
to know. I tell Him the news of my home and family and ask His advice on various matters where
I need help.  Often the answers pop into my head as I sit there and I am so grateful for His wisdom
and counsel.  Of course, I could be deluding myself but I truly hope and think not.

The Microcosm:

We look upon the world basically in terms of the matter contained in it.  Matter, as we know,
is composed of atoms and molecules,the molecules themselves being chemical combinations
of two or more atoms.  Elementary science tells that an atom comprises principally three kinds
of particles,viz., protons, neutrons and electrons.

Electrons were thus at first visualized as particles. But in the year 1927, evidence came to light
not merely electrons, exhibits such duality.  Interestingly, where the particle nature of matter shows
forth, its wave nature lies dormant, and where its wave nature lies dormant, and where its wave
nature shows forth, the particle nature lies dormant. It is as though nature is two faced, and is
playing pranks with us showing one face at a time!       

The mystery of matter does not end there.  Any wave is normally understood as an oscillation
of something physical in space and time.  When we drop a stone in the pond, the waves created
in it are due to oscillations of he water particles.  Similarly sound waves reach from oscillations
of pressure, and light waves from oscillations of electric and magnetic fields.

10. AruL OLi:  The grace of Siva:


Verse 1:


அருளில் தலைநின் றறிந்தழுந் தாதார்
அருளில் தலைநில்லார் ஐம்பாசம் நீங்கார்
அருளின் பெருமை அறியார் செறியார்
அருளின் பிறந்திட்(டு) அறிந்தறி வாரே. (1)



Be Born in Grace and Receive Grace

Those who do not take their firm stand on Grace
And in conscious determination steep in it not,
Will never Grace receive;
Nor be freed of Pasas Five*
They will not know greatness that Grace gives;
They will not resolute be;
They alone know Grace who to Grace are born.


Arunachala Siva.

9. Tiru AruL Vaippu:  The method of Siva out of His Grace:

Verse 1:


இருபத மாவ திரவும் பகலும்
உருவது வாவ துயிரும் உடலும்
அருளது வாவ தறமும் தவமும்
பொருளது வுள்நின்ற போகம தாமே. (1)


Truth is Indivisible

Darkness (ignorance) and Light (knowledge)
Are the states two;
Life and body are the forms two;
Dharma and penance are the graces two;
Truth is but the blessing within.


Arunachala Siva.

8. Sampradayam - The Method:

Verse 1:

உடல்பொருள் ஆவி உதகத்தால் கொண்டு
படர்வினைப் பற்றறப் பார்த்துக் கைவைத்து
நொடியின் அடிவைத்து நுண்ணுணர் வாங்கிக்
கடிய பிறப்பறக் காட்டினன் நந்தியே.  (1)


Lord appears as Siva Guru and gives initiation

My body, wealth and life,
He took from me as sacrificial offering,
Through ritual appropriate;
He directed his spiritual glance at me
And dispelled my Karma`s network to destruction;
And then He laid His hands on me
And planting His Feet on my head
In a trice imparted Spiritual Awareness
And thus my birth`s cycle He ended
He, the Nandi,
Through these acts of Diksha, successive.


Arunachala Siva.

7.  Siva Lingam:


Verse 1:


குரைக்கின்ற வாரிக் குவலயம் நீரும்
பரக்கின்ற காற்றும் பயில்கின்ற தீயும்
நிரைக்கின்ற வானிவை நீண்டகன் றானை
வரைத்து வலம்செயு மாறறி யேனே. (1)


Siva is Immanent and Transcendent

He pervades the roaring waters of the seas
He permeates the spreading winds and flaming fire
Thus is He immanent in all Nature
Yet I know Him not, adore Him not.

Arunachala Siva.

6.  Jnana Lingam:


Verse 1:


உருவும் அருவும் உருவோ டருவும்
மருவும் பரசிவன் மன்பல் லுயிர்க்கும்
குருவும் எனநிற்கும் கொள்கைய னாகும்
தருவென நல்கும் சதாசிவன் தானே. (1)

Lord is Bounteous

As Form, the Formless and Form-Formless
Thus is Parasiva in all life immanent;
As Guru, too, He stands;
Unto the Kalpaka tree He bounties bestows
He, the Sadasiva.

Arunachala Siva.

5. Atma Lingam:

Verse 1:


அகார முதலாய் அனைத்துமாய் நிற்கும்
உகார முதலாய் உயிர்ப்பெய்து நிற்கும்
அகார உகாரம் இரண்டும் அறியில்
அகார உகாரம் இலிங்கம தாமே. (1)

In the Beginning was Aum

Akaram (A) as beginning, all exist
Ukaram (U) as beginning, all life exists
If Akaram Ukaram are together known
Akaram Ukaram is but Linga divine.

Arunachala Siva.

4. Sadasiva Lingam:

Verse 1:


கூடிய பாதம் இரண்டும் படிமிசை
பாடிய கையிரண் டெட்டும் பரந்தெழும்
தேடும் முகம்ஐந்தும் செங்கயல் மூவைந்தும்
நாடும் சதாசிவ நல்லொளி முத்தே. (1)


Sadasiva form with Five Faces

His twin Feet are planted on earth below;
The ten hands, the holy in praise sing,
In directions all spread;
Five His Faces that are sought,
Five times three his eyes fiery;
Thus is Sadasiva that you seek
The Pearl that is lustrous, beyond, beyond compare.

Arunachala Siva.

3. Pinda Lingam -  The human form is Siva Linga:


Verse 1:


மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு சிவலிங்கம்
மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு சிதம்பரம்
மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு சதாசிவம்
மானுடர் ஆக்கை வடிவு திருக்கூத்தே. (1)


Human form is Siva Linga

The Human Form is like Siva Lingam
The Human Form is like Chidambaram
The Human Form is like Sadasivam
The Human Form is like the Holy Dance, forsooth.

Arunachala Siva.

2.  Anda Lingam: Lingam as the universe manifest:

Verse 1:


இலிங்கம தாகுவ தியாரும் அறியார்
இலிங்கம தாகுவ தெண்டிசை யெல்லாம்
இலிங்கம தாகுவ தெண்ணெண் கலையும்
இலிங்கம தாக எடுத்த துலகே.  (1)




Linga or Sadasiva is World manifest

They know not what Linga is
Linga is directions eight
Linga is Kalas, eight times eight
It is as Linga the world emerged.

Arunachala Siva.

Tantra 7:

ARadharam - Six Adharas:


Verse 1:


நாலும் இருமூன்றும் ஈரைந்தும் ஈராறும்
கோலின்மேல் நின்ற குறிகள் பதினாறும்
மூலங்கண் டாங்கே முடிந்த முதல்இரண்டும்
காலங்கண் டான்அடி காணலும் ஆமே. (1)



The Six Adharas and their petals

Piercing the Chakras that are petaled
Four, Six, Ten and Twelve
And the Six and Ten still above;
Lo! Behold then the Twin petaled Center finale;
You have indeed beheld the Holy Feet of the Timeless One.

Arunachala Siva.

14. Pakvan - One who is a mature Siva devotee:


Verse 1:


தொழிலறி வாளர் சுருதிகண் ணாகப்
பழுதறி யாத பரம குருவை
வழியறி வார்நல் வழியறி வாளர்
அழிவறி வார்மற்றை யல்லா தாரே. (1)



They who find the Path

Scriptures to guide them,
The Disciples Fit
Find the blemish-less Guru;
They know their job and so find the Path;
The rest are to destruction destined.


Arunachala Siva.

13. Apakvan -  One who is not a mature Siva-devotee:


Verse 1:


குருட்டினை நீக்கும் குருவினைக் கொள்ளார்
குருட்டினை நீக்காக் குருவினைக் கொள்வார்
குருடுங் குருடும் குருட்டாட்டம் ஆடிக்
குருடுங் குருடும் குழிவிழு மாறே. (1)

Blind leading the Blind

They seek not the Guru that blindness cures
They seek the Guru that cures not blindness;
The blind and the blind in a blind dance shuffled
And the blind and the blind in a deep pit together fell.


Arunachala Siva.

12. Siva Vesham:

Verse 1:


அருளால் அரனுக் கடிமைய தாகிப்
பொருளாந் தனதுடற் பொற்பது நாடி
இருளான தின்றி இருஞ்செயல் அற்றோர்
தெருளாம் அடிமைச் சிவவேடத் தாரே. (1)

Liege-robe of Siva

By Hara`s Grace they become His liege-men;
Within the body mansion, they seek His golden throne;
Darkness dispelled, they know of deeds none, good and bad;
Thus they stand steadfast in the liege-robe of Siva.

Arunachala Siva.
