Verse 8:

அரியொடு பூமிசை யானும்
    ஆதியும் அறிகிலார்
வரிதரு பாம்பொடு வன்னி
    திங்களும் மத்தமும்
புரிதரு புன்சடை வைத்த
    எம்புனி தற்கினி
எரியன்றி அங்கைக்கொன் றில்லை
    யோஎம் பிரானுக்கே. (8)


Hari Tirumal and Brahman, seated in a lotus flower, were unable to have a vision of His head and feet.
For our pure God and our Master,  who placed on His twisted and murky matted locks, a cobra with
lines on its body, leaves of Indian Mesquit, a crescent moon and Datura flowers. Is there nothing
except fire to hold in His palm?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 7:


தாருந்தண் கொன்றையுங் கூவி
    ளந்தனி மத்தமும்
ஆரும் அளவறி யாத
    ஆதியும் அந்தமும்
ஊரும்ஒன் றில்லை உலகெ
    லாம்உகப் பார்தொழப்
பேரும்ஓ ராயிர மென்ப
    ரால்எம் பிரானுக்கே. (7)


For our Master, Siva`s garlands are the cool KoṉRai,  Bhilwa, three pronged leaves like weapon and
very low Datura flowers.  His beginning and end are such that no one can measure those things.
There is no fixed place for the devotees who cherish Him with love;  The whole world is His shrine.
He has one thousand names, has no single name to recite.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse 6:


இறைவ னென்றெம் பெருமானை
    வானவர் ஏத்தப்போய்த்
துறையொன் றித்தூ மலரிட்
    டடியிணை போற்றுவார்
மறையன்றிப் பாடுவ தில்லை
    யோமல்கு வானிளம்
பிறையன்றிச் சூடுவ தில்லை
    யோஎம் பிரானுக்கே.  (6)

The celestial beings, having gone to praise our Lord, knowing Him as one who is omnipresent,
following the right path  will praise the two Feet placing pure flowers.  For my Lord, is there no
other song except Vedas?  Is there nothing else which He wears on the head, except the waxing
young crescent moon that shines in the sky?

Verse 5:


வேயன தோளி மலைம
    களைவி ரும்பிய
மாயமில் மாமலை நாட
    னாகிய மாண்பனை
ஆயன சொல்லிநின் றார்கள்
    அல்ல லறுக்கினும்
பேயனே பித்தனே என்ப
    ரால்எம் பிரானையே.  (5)

Siva,  who has the eminence of dwelling in the big mountainous country, who loved the daughter
of the  Mountain, Uma,  whose shoulders are like the bamboo and who has no deception.
Even if he cuts at the root of sufferings of those who praise him according to their ability, some ignorant people call our Master, He dances with the ghosts.  He is mad.

Verse 4:


நரிதலை கவ்வநின் றோரி
    கூப்பிட நள்ளிருள்
எரிதலைப் பேய்புடை சூழ
    வாரிருட் காட்டிடைச்
சிரிதலைமாலை சடைக்க
    ணிந்தஎஞ் செல்வனைப்
பிரிதலைப் பேசன்மின் தொண்டர்
    காள்எம் பிரானையே. (4)


Devotees!  When the foxes drag the skulls of dead people, seizing by the mouth and the old jackals
howl.  Surrounded by ghosts which have hairs looking like burning fire, on all sides, at midnight,
in the cremation ground which has darkness which cannot be pierced by light. Do not speak words to
indicate leaving, our Master, who adorned His matted locks, with a garland of laughing skulls
Do not despise Him by saying these things;  These are not His real nature.

சிட்டன் திரிபுரஞ் சுட்ட

    காள்எம் பிரானையே. (3)


Unsteady mind. Devotees who declare that acts of killing living beings which have this great world
as their standing place, are obstacles to the pursuit of righteous path.  The superior God, the God
above gods, who burnt the three cities.  Devotees!  Do not speak disparaging our Master you will
be damned if you talk in that manner.

For my Master,  is there no other stage except the cremation ground?
Is there no other sandal-paste except the fine powder of sacred ash found on the cremation-ground?
Is there no other half to be praised by the devotees except the half of the daughter of Himavan, (Uma)?
Is there no other vehicle to ride upon except the white unruly Bull living in the forest tract?

This Padigam describes the nature of Siva and Uma:


Padigam 7.044:

Verse 1:

முடிப்பது கங்கையுந் திங்களுஞ்
    செற்றது மூவெயில்
நொடிப்பது மாத்திரை நீறெ
    ழக்கணை நூறினார்
கடிப்பதும் ஏறுமென் றஞ்சு
    வன்திருக் கைகளால்
பிடிப்பது பாம்பன்றி இல்லை
    யோஎம் பிரானுக்கே. (1)

Siva,  bears on His head Ganga,  and the crescent moon;  What He destroyed was the three forts.
He destroyed them for the ashes to rise in a such a short time taken to snap the fingers, with an arrow.
Cobra is the thing held in His strong holy hands.  I fear that the poison will spread as soon as the cobra
bites. Is there no other thing for my master?
(This decade derives its name from the first two words of the first verse.)

Arunachala Siva.

1 of 7.043: Tiru Mudhukunram - (Vriddachalam)



நஞ்சி இடைஇன்று நாளையென் றும்மை நச்சுவார்
துஞ்சியிட் டாற்பின்னைச் செய்வதென் னடிகேள்சொலீர்
பஞ்சி யிடப்புட்டில் கீறுமோபணி யீரருள்
முஞ்சி யிடைச்சங்கம் ஆர்க்குஞ் சீர்முது குன்றரே. (1)


Siva, in Mudhukunram (Vriddachalam),  where in a kind of grass known as munchi grow.
Conches make a loud noise. Languishing, the devotees who desire you thinking that the God will
grant His Grace today or tomorrow. If they die in that hope what is the thing that you can do to them,
my Deity, please tell me.  Will the hard shell of a coconut used as a vessel break if it is crammed with
cotton!  Please bestow your Grace quickly.


Arunachala Siva.

1 of 7.042: Tiru Venjmaakoodal:

Having poured into the water hoarding up pearls which drop from bamboos and have shining rays,
cardamon, cloves, cubeb and ginger, flowing swiftly.  Dashing against the bank without ceasing
on the Eastern bank of Chitraru, Siva,  who is different from this world and who remains in
Venjamaakoodal, l where started stags live and where the Indian cuckoos perching on the
mast wood tree which has a curved trunk and leaves that can be broken, feted cassia, and common
delight of the woods, cry without ceasing!  Desire me also to admit me into the company of your devotees.

Verse 1 of 7.041:  Tiruk Kachur Alakkovil:



முதுவாய் ஓரி கதற முதுகாட்
    டெரிகொண் டாடல் முயல்வானே
மதுவார் கொன்றைப் புதுவீ சூடும்
    மலையான் மகள்தன் மணவாளா
கதுவாய்த் தலையிற் பலிநீ கொள்ளக்
    கண்டால் அடியார் கவலாரே
அதுவே யாமா றிதுவோ கச்சூர்
    ஆலக் கோயில் அம்மானே. (1)

Siva, who dances holding fire in the cremation ground when the old aged jackal roars, the husband of the daughter of the Mountain,(Uma),  who wears fresh flowers of KoṉRai which are full of honey.
Will not your devotees be worried in mind when they see you receiving alms in a broken skull.
Is this the nature of your grace?  The God who is in Alakkovil,  on the northern side of Kacchur!
(Kacchur in the name of the place and Alakkovil,  is the name of the temple.)

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 1 of 7.040:  Tiruk Kaanattu Mullur:


வள்வாய மதிமிளிரும் வளர்சடையி னானை
    மறையவனை வாய்மொழியை வானவர்தங் கோனைப்
புள்வாயைக் கீண்டுலகம் விழுங்கிஉமிழ்ந் தானைப்
    பொன்னிறத்தின் முப்புரிநூல் நான்முகத்தி னானை
முள்வாய மடல்தழுவி முடத்தாழை ஈன்று
    மொட்டலர்ந்து விரைநாறு முருகுவிரி பொழில்சூழ்
கள்வாய கருங்குவளை கண்வளருங் கழனிக்
    கானாட்டு முள்ளூரிற் கண்டுதொழு தேனே. (1)


The buds of the fragrant screw-pine were put forth by those trees and blossomed having petals,
which have on their edges thorns. Surrounded by gardens which have abundant honey and spread
their fragrance, having seen in Tiruk Kaanattu Mullur, where in the fields the blue nelumbo flowers from
which honey flows, seem to be like sleeping eyes. Siva, who has a growing matted  locks, on which
the crescent moon,  with sharp ends is shining.  He is the Vedam, other words spoken by the mouth,
the King of the immortals, who is himself Tirumal who tore the beak of a bird a crane, swallowed the
worlds and spat them out. He is also the four-faced Brahman,  who is golden in color and wears a sacred thread of three strands.  I worshipped with joined hands.

Arunachala Siva.

12613



Of the five elements of the world, the lowest is Earth.  Water which is mightier than Earth, consumes
the Earth in great deluge. The Agni, Fire, is more powerful than Water.  The Fire consumes the water
and dries it up.  Vayu, the Air, is mightier than Fire. Vayu, the Air can put out the fire.  The Space is
the more powerful than Air.  While Air does not engage itself beyond some distance, but the Space is everywhere, even beyond the realms of Air.

Now, where is this Space?  The Space is within our mind.  There is no Space when the mind is not there.  Mind or Ahamkara, ego is the mightiest.  But this ego-sense is also within Atma, Aham. Ahamkara or
aham-vritti gives birth to Aham-vritti and the Aham Vritti also quells in Aham, Atma, Arunachala.

Between Aham-vritti and Aham, there is Aham Sphurti.  This Aham Sphurti is the dance of I,I,I,
pure mind.  This is the dance of Nataraja, Siva in Chidambaram.  Bhagavan Ramana says this Sri
Arunachala Pancharatnam, verse 2. "Nan...enru nadithiduvaiyal thaan unper thaan Idaym enriduvar
thaam."

"Ever as "I" in the Heart You dance Hence are You called the Heart!"

This Chidakasa-tiru natanam, the dance of Siva in the inner space, gives rise to the non-moving Self. 

Aham-sphurti becomes Aham, Arunachala.

This is explained Bhagavan Ramana in Verse 3 of Sri Arunachala Pancharatnam:

Ahamukama antha amala-mathi thannaal....

He whose pure mind turned inward searches,  Whence this "I" arises knows the Self aright and
merges in You, Aruna Hill, As a river in the ocean.
                                         
(Tr. K. Swaminathan)

Bhagavan Ramana describes this in two verses of Sri Arunachala Akshramanamalai also.

Verse 32: Stop deceiving me, testing and proving me, Oh! Arunachala! And henceforward reveal
to me instead, your form of Light!             

           (Tr. K.Swaminathan)

Note here that Bhagavan Ramana mentions the word Jyoti or Light.  This Aham-sphurti, the dance of Chidambaram.

Verse 43:  Reveal naturally by yourself, Oh! Arunachala! That each one is himself the real Self!

                                              OR

Verse 43: You are the sole Reality, Oh! Arunachala, Reveal Yourself, as such.
                                              OR

Verse 43:  Reality is nothing but the Self  -  This is all You reveal, is it not Oh! Arunachala?

The Aham-sphurti ends up as Siva.  The dance of Nataraja is ending as non-moving Arunachala!

The dance of Siva and his non-moving Form of Arunachala has also been indicated in Sri Arunachala
Nava Mani Malai, Verse 1.

Achalane aayinum acchavai thannuL......

Arunachala Siva.

Five thieves are ever ready to rob us.  But if I depend on Bhagavan, He takes care of me.  No one
can try to rob Bhagavan or Christ for that matter.  Many people have tried this trick on Bhagavan
as well as Christ. Once spies came and said to him (Christ) and said:  Teacher, we know that you
teach the truth about what God wants people to do.  And you treat everyone with the same respect,
no matter who they are.

Tell us, should we pay taxes to the Emperor or not?

Jesus knew that they were trying to trick him.  So, he told them: 'Show me a coin.'  They showed.
Then he asked:  Whose picture and name are on it?'

'The Emperor's'. they answered.

Then he told them: "Give the Emperor what belongs to him. Give God what belongs to God"

                - Luke 20; 20-25
                - also, in Matthew 22.15-22 and Mark 12.13-17.

Let the five thieves be there.  But we have got a more powerful guard with us.  The guard will take
care of us and our job is to pay our devotion and respects to him and sleep peacefully!

Arunachala Siva.

I who am known by the name of Aruran,  and who am the slave to the God, as Father in Tiruvarur.
I am the slave of Pusalar of Niṉṟavur, whose mouth was always chanting the Vedam of everlasting fame,
of Mani its bangles having lines, and of NEsan. (Mani was the queen of NedumAran, the hero of PaṇṭikkOvai.)
I am the slave of Senkannan,  who ruled as Paṇdyaṉ the Paṇdyaṉ country also.
I  am the slave of Tiru Neelakaṇṭar of the Paanar caste;   (He played on the Yaazh, the hymns of Sampandhar; 
those whose hearts rejoice and melt on hearing the state of being the slave of Aruran Sunmarar,
who is such a great person the chief of the people of Tiru Navavalur and the son of Isaignani and Saṭaiyaṉ
who Is the feet of Haran, who is my God by right,  will become devotees of the Father in Tiruvarur.
