Verse 8:

உளங்கைய இருபதோ டொருபதுங் கொடாங்

விளங்கிழை யொடும்புகும் விசய மங்கையே.

Verse  176:

The life of the family is a boat laden with misery, which as its reward transports its occupants, who are blinded by the defect of the ego, to the seven hells. Will the wise not tremble with fear at the sight of it?  When the one source of the five senses performs the six kinds of labor, reality itself is transformed into unreality.

Through attachment to wife and family not only will all kinds of mental and physical   
sufferings be incurred, but also, through the actions performed with attachment in that birth, a never ending cycle of births will follow, leading the householder into the seven hells.  Ironically the Kalam - ship to which he entrusted his salvation will be undoing.

In order to maintain his household, the house holder will need to exert himself from in some form of work, an endeavor which will keep him from the practice of Siva Yoga, which alone can lead him to the Real.  The six forms of labor appropriate to the land of India are given as Uzhavu - agriculture, Tozhil - manufacture, Vanigam - trade, Varaivu - marriage, Vicchai, Vittai -arts and sciences, literature, and sciences, literature, and Chirpam, sculpture, architecture.

Verse 177:

Will the wise find family life acceptable?  To them it will be like a bear coupling with its mate on a great heap of dirt, surrounded by a tribe of quarrelsome monkeys.  Like
the Lord of death (trapping him in a noose, like fire (surrounding him on all sides),
like the ocean (to shipwrecked sailor) or like a great mountain (heaped on his shoulders), it will consign him to the hell of future births.

TCS says that Kalan - Lord of Death is like the family because just as Death snare his victims with his Pasam - rope or noose, the family of a would - be renunciant will follow him, grabbing onto his hands and feet and weeping and wailing until he gives in and returns to them.

Verse  175:

To enjoy the body of a woman is akin to a dog greedily licking ghee smeared on a sharp blade, or someone drinking sweet Payasam mixed with poison.  It is like trying to quench a thirst with water of an entirely unreal mirage. Who would not renounce the world, having seen the evidence provided by the Asuna  bird, elephant, moth, fish and flying insect, (each being lured to death by one or other senses)?

The author gives five examples of creatures, each of which is undone by one of the five senses: the Asunam bird by sound, the elephant by touch, being lured into the hunters' pit by desire for union with a female elephant which has been set up as a lure; the moth by sight, being lured into a flame by its bright form; the fish by taste,
being unable to resist the bait on the fisherman's hook, and the flying insect by smell,
being eaten by a predator after alighting on a flower, attracted by its scent.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  174:

Can there be any attachment to house and home if one remains at rest with no thoughts
whatsoever arising, free of attachment to the body and all the rest (sensory pleasures, the external world, and the physical, sensory and mental faculties?  (This state is (one of stillness), like an iron needle placed inside a magnetized pot, or a lighted lamp in a windless place.  All the tattvas will be alien to such a one.

According to the commentary what is meant by 'all the rest' are, in addition to the body itself, Bhogam - enjoyment, pleasure, Bhuvanam - the world and Karanam - the organs of sense and action and the mental faculties, which are all to be rejected as Nan andru - It is not 'I'.

In the magnetic pot, metaphor, a needle made out of a magnetic metal such as iron or steel is clearly meant.  It is not clear what is meant by a magnetized or magnetic pot.
However the main idea is clear: a metal needle on the outside of such a pot would be attracted towards it just as consciousness, when it is outward turned, is drawn to the world of the mind and senses.  Placed inside such a pot, however, it would not be subject to attraction by any outer object at all, just as the inward turned consciousness is not attracted by the objects of sense.

Once the impure tattvas, the organs of sense and action, the mental faculties etc., cease to function, their cause, the pure-impure tattvas will cease to operate, along with their own cause, the pure tattvas.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


நற்றவர் காழியுண் ஞானசம் பந்தன்
குற்றமில் பெரும்புகழ்க் கொள்ளிக் காடரைச்
சொற்றமி ழின்னிசை மாலை சோர்வின்றிக்
கற்றவர் கழலடி காண வல்லரே.


On Siva in Koḷḷikkādu who has great and faultless fame, those who have learnt without forgetfulness the garland of Tamizh verses of sweet music composed by Jnana Sambandhan in Sirkazhi, where people who want to get rid of the cycle of birth and death and attain salvation, live are capable of obtaining vision of the feet of Siva which wear Kazhal.

Padigam on Tiruk Kollikadu completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:

நாடிநின் றறிவில்நா ணிலிகள் சாக்கியர்
ஓடிமுன் னோதிய வுரைகள் மெய்யல
பாடுவர் நான்மறை பயின்ற மாதொடும்
கூடுவர் திருவுருக் கொள்ளிக் காடரே.

The words of the shameless Jains who had no intelligence and the Buddhists who ran and preached in former times do not contain any truth. By chanting musically the four Vedas, he is united in his holy body with a lady with whom he is intimate.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:

தேடினா ரயன்முடி மாலுஞ் சேவடி
நாடினா ரவரென்று நணுக கிற்றிலர்
பாடினார் பரிவொடு பத்தர் சித்தமும்
கூடினார்க் கருள் செய்வர் கொள்ளிக் காடரே.


Brahma searched for the head; and the great Vishnu searched for the lotus-red feet: they had not the capability and could never come anywhere near them. He will grant his grace to those devotees who sang his praises with love and who had concentrated minds, being very near them.

Arunachala Siva.
