11.  If the babies mature instantaneously, the world too can be real.  The eternally blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

12.  The world can arise if a crow can find food in an imaginary forests, or, if the explanation of a powerful Mantra could take place as a pleasing, light conversation.

13.  The world would exist, if a human dead a month ago comes back alive. If buttermilk can revert to milk, we can say the world can also occur by and by.

14.  The world would be real if the milk arising from a cow's udder were to flow back into the source.  Let the world be real if clouds can be formed from dust.

15. The world would be if a rutting elephant could be rendered by the hairs of a tortoise.  The world exists if the mount Meru could be moved by the tendrils of a lotus stalk.

16.  This world would be if the ocean could be held by a garland of waves. The world would exist if a lotus could flourish amidst a circle of firms.

17. The world would be if a huge mountain becomes the abode of Indra. The perpetually blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

18.  The world is existent if a fish were to rest inside the lotus, or, if a tiny wave could engulf the ocean or if the mount Meru were to have a tail.

19.  The creation would be if a lion was killed and consumed by a mosquito.  The world would be if the triad of worlds was to fit into the nook of an atom.

20.  The world exists if an object in dream stays put in the waking state.  The world can always be if a speeding river were to stand still.

My Guru Lord:

21.  Except the God who is my Guru Lord, the master of Mauna, what did other gods do for me?  All the other gods in their heavens exist only for everyone else.  For me, Guru alone is my God.

22.  Our Lord, shining forth resplendently as Swarupa, exists as the repository of grace. When He is waiting for an opportune moment to steal your ego and save you from the misery filled and delusive samsara, do not go after and join the spurious gurus who wander in the streets with the sole aim of stealing your wealth.

23.  To destroy the false first person that rises as I, our Lord incarnated Himself in an appropriate way upon this earth as the Jnana Guru to promulgate the inquiry method,
'Who am I?'.  The way to attain His divine feet of silence that are the state of liberation is to come to Him and remain fully under the dominion of our Lord who is the supreme light of grace, Jnana.

24. Remaining as the sun of Jnana, my Lord, the Sadguru, radiated the light of grace and dispelled completely the dense darkness, the intense delusion in my heart.  Consequently, the distress arising through bewilderment, which in turn is caused by the obsession with concepts, ended.  This is how my Lord came to exercise His rule over me, I who was such an insignificant one.

25. Our Guru, our Lord Ramana, Sadasivan who is free from from the ego, is the excellent one who speaks only about Jnana, and never utters a single useless word. He is the sea of serenity, free of anger.  He is the wish fulfilling jewel in the hearts of human beings.

26. Because the light of my Guru  whose form is consciousness now flourishes in my heart spontaneously as the Self, I see it continuously, without ever blinking. Will the light that has embraced me and enabled me to attain Mauna through a dead ego ever allow me to blink?

27.  While remaining as the expanse of consciousness that exists as the true eye, my Lord sported before me as the Guru who bestows being consciousness, pouring down the rain of grace that became a great flood, and enabling me the realization of the one deathless reality in the heart.

28.  Our peerless Lord, the Guru who has the true Jnana that is divine grace, is a prosperous person who grants to those who resort to Him the ultimate refuge, the state of Sivam itself, making it become their possession.  But those whose minds are deluded by desire and so on, (kama, krodha, loba, moha, mada, mathsarya), will go to Him and beg only garbage, dry leaves and twigs.

29.  Ramana is the embodiment of reality in whom flourishes abundantly the godly Lordship that is extolled by all the people of the world.  He is the grace bestowing Guru for the science of the supreme (para vidya).  His power of Jnana, the knowledge of reality that is the state of Mauna and which is the perfection of liberation, is extremely difficult for anyone to attain.

My Guru (continues)

16. At first He appeared separate from me as my mother and father, as the God who bestows grace and eventually as the utterly impartial teacher of true Jnana.  Enabling me to experience bliss, He has now become one with me, as my own non dual Self-nature, that which is entitled to one's love, which confers only goodness.

17.  My God Ramana reigned over me, shining clearly within me as the Self, the formless truth of consciousness, and externally as the Guru who bestows grace-consciousness. As I am firmly established in His feet, there is no delusion for me.

18.  He is the Brahmin (Brahman knower), the embodiment of immaculate grace that is the intrinsic nature of the transcendental Swarupa.  As a consequence of Him abiding in my heart without ever leaving it, the sense of 'I' and 'mine' that are the ego delusion, has been destroyed. In  His state of being the Guru, none can equal or better Him.

19. It is not possible for me to describe even slightly the greatness of the Guru who totally destroyed my mental bewilderment. If I attempt to have thoughts, my mind will ecstatically glorify His nature in the abode of Mauna, that which is the source of the thought that attempted to praise Him.

20.  Because Sivam, ever untouched by name and form, itself took me as its target by becoming the form of the Guru, I have flourishing in my heart a life of resting in the divine feet of silence, that state of distinction in which there is nothing to dwell upon.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:

கொந்தணவும் பொழில்புடைசூழ் கொச்சைமேவு குலவேந்தன்
செந்தமிழின் சம்பந்தன் சிறைவண்புனல்சூழ் திருநல்லூர்ப்
பந்தணவு மெல்விரலாள் பங்கன்றன்னைப் பயில்பாடல்
சிந்தனையா லுரைசெய்வார் சிவலோகஞ்சேர்ந் திருப்பாரே.

Sambandhan, an authority on chaste Tamizh, and the great chief in Kochai surrounded on all sides by gardens where there are bunches of flowers. Those who recite with meditation the verses on Siva, who has a lady who holds in her fingers a ball, as his half, in Tiru Nallūr surrounded by plenty of water which has dams on it, will stay permanently in the world of Siva.

Padigam on Tiru Nallur completed.

Verse  10:


பொல்லாத சமணரொடு புறங்கூறுஞ் சாக்கியரொன்

நல்லார்க ளந்தணர்கள் நாளுமேத்துந் திருநல்லூர்
மல்லார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You felt happy in dwelling in the most elegant temple in Tiru Nallūr when the good-natured Brahmins praise you everyday and other devotees who have turned a deaf ear to the religious instructions of the Buddhists, who always slander together with the wicked Jains who are not worthy of regard, praise you without ceasing.

Verse 9:


போதின்மே லயன்றிருமால் போற்றியும்மைக் காணாது
நாதனே யிவனென்று நயந்தேத்த மகிழ்ந்தளித்தீர்
தீதிலா அந்தணர்கள் தீமூன்றோம்புந் திருநல்லூர்
மாதரா ளவளோடு மன்னுகோயில் மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You granted your grace with joy when Brahma who is on a lotus flower, and Vishnu, could not see you and praised with piety `He is the master!` You felt happy in staying permanently in the temple along with the lady, at Tiru Nallūr where the Brahmins who do not commit sinful acts maintain the three fires. [The three fires are spoken in Puṟam also].

Verse  8:


காதமரும் வெண்குழையீர் கறுத்தவரக்கன் மலையெடுப்ப
மாதமரு மென்மொழியாண் மறுகும்வண்ணங் கண்டுகந்தீர்

மாதமருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You wear a white ear-ring in one ear.  When the demon lifted the mountain with anger, you felt joy to make the lady with lovable soft words, bewilder. You felt happy in the beautiful temple at Tiru Nallūr where Brahmins who disliked evil acts praise you in the second person and third person, as the temple fit for you.

ஊன்றோயும் வெண்மழுவு மனலுமேந்தி யுமைகாண

தேன்றோயும் பைம்பொழிலின் வண்டுபாடுந் திருநல்லூர்
வான்றோயுங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

Holding a white battle-axe soaked in flesh, and fire, you have a form with which you rise high and dance to fill the sky in which there are stars, to be witnessed by Uma.

Chapter 34:

1. Ribhu: Listen to the knowledge of Brahman, the wondrous, the most hard to attain, a single hearing of which is enough to bestow the supreme liberation.

2. Truly, truly, the world does not exist and so not do thought, understanding and the like.  The knowledge of Brahman alone is by itself, ever, eternally brimming with bliss;

3. blissful, inexhaustible, peaceful, uniform and painless. The world of mind does not exist. Neither is there activity in reality.

4.  The concept of the world is non existent, nor is there any form in the least to be seen.  Thought and its activity are of the form of unreality.  The world is verily naught.

5. All is thus indeed unreal. Unreal also are the time and Isvara.  The world is a concept, likened to the fear of a son of a barren woman.

6.  The world appears in front of me like the peak of a castle built in air. The world would exist if one could quench one's thirst from a mirage.

7. This world is like the instance in which a man is killed by the peak of a hill and not an arrow.  If the imaginary castle is true, so would be the world always true.

8.  Like the blue color of the sky reflecting in the ocean the world seems to become real. The world is indeed true, if the silver in the pearl oyster could become a real ornament.

9. The recurrent world becomes evident just like the man dying from fear of a rope,
mistaking it to be a serpent, or even as an arrow of flowers quench a raging fire.

10.  The world exists if cooking were possible using the green trunk of banana plant as fuel.  The eternally blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.
