Verse  11:

ஒப்பரிய பூம்புகலி யோங்குகோயின் மேயானை
அப்பரிசிற் பதியான அணிகொண்ஞான சம்பந்தன்
செப்பரிய தண்டமிழாற் றெரிந்தபாட லிவைவல்லார்
எப்பரிசி லிடர்நீங்கி யிமையோருலகத் திருப்பாரே.

On the Lord who gladly resides in the flourishing temple in beautiful Pukali which has no equal, Jnana Sambandhan wearing ornaments, who is the chief of such a high honor which cannot be explained in words. Those who are capable of reciting the choice verses composed in pleasant Tamizh, which cannot be recited by those who do not have the grace of the Lord, in whatever they may get sufferings they will be free from them and enjoy the pleasures in the paradise of the Devas.

Padigam on Tirup Pukali completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:

நெடிதாய வன்சமணு நிறைவொன்றில்லாச் சாக்கியருங்
கடிதாய கட்டுரையாற் கழறமேலோர் பொருளானீர்
பொடியாரு மேனியினீர் புகலிமறையோர் புரிந்தேத்த
வடிவாருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

The tall and strong Jains and Buddhists, who do not have fullness of knowledge,
you were above the abuse of the exceedingly fabricated falsehood (of both of them). You have a body on which sacred ash is smeared. You dwelt happily in the well-shaped temple in Pukali where Brahmins praised you with love, as the temple desired by you.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:

சலந்தாங்கு தாமரைமே லயனுந்தரணி யளந்தானுங்
கலந்தோங்கி வந்திழிந்துங் காணாவண்ணங் கனலானீர்
புலந்தாங்கி யைம்புலனுஞ் செற்றார்வாழும் பூம்புகலி
நலந்தாங்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாக நயந்தீரே.

Brahma, who is seated on the lotus which is supported by water, and Vishnu, who measured the world, you became a column of fire as not to be seen (by both of them) though they joined and flew high and went descending down the earth, having borne in mind knowledge of reality. You desired the temple which has many architectural beauties in beautiful Pukali where wise men who have annihilated the five senses of the body, as the temple suitable to you.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:

பரந்தோங்கு பல்புகழ்சே ரரக்கர்கோனை வரைக்கீழிட்
டுரந்தோன்றும் பாடல்கேட் டுகவையளித்தீ ருகவாதார்
புரந்தோன்று மும்மதிலு மெரியச்செற்றீர் பூம்புகலி
வரந்தோன்று கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

Having placed the king of demons who had many kinds of fame which spread for and wide and increased, under the mountain (Kailāsa), you granted boons out of joy, on hearing the songs which came out of his knowledge (of the Vēdas) [It is said that Siva's anger subsided on hearing Ravanan chanting the musical Sama Veda.
Siva granted Ravanan, a sword and a lease of long life;]. You destroyed the three fortifications which appeared like cities belonging to your enemies. You rejoiced to dwell in the eminent temple in beautiful Pukali as the temple desired by you.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:

களிபுல்கு வல்லவுண ரூர்மூன்றெரியக் கணைதொட்டீர்
அளிபுல்கு பூமுடியீர் அமரரேத்த வருள்செய்தீர்
தெளிபுல்கு தேனினமு மலருள்விரைசேர் திண்புகலி
ஒளிபுல்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாக வுகந்தீரே.

You shot an arrow to burn the three cities of the strong demons, who were inebriated with power. You have a head adorned with flowers on which bees swarm. You bestowed your grace on Devas, when they worshipped you you rejoiced to dwell in the temple of great brilliance in strong Pukali where the bees of bright color collect the fragrance which is inside the flowers.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:

மண்ணார்ந்த மண்முழவந் ததும்பமலையான் மகளென்னும்
பெண்ணார்ந்த மெய்மகிழப் பேணியெரிகொண் டாடினீர்
விண்ணார்ந்த மதியமிடை மாடத்தாரும் வியன்புகலிக்
கண்ணார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாகக் கலந்தீரே.

When the Kuṭamuzha is played on which there is a black paste, you danced holding fire desiring it, to make the body of your consort who is the daughter of the mountain swell with joy. You came into being in the temple in the broad Pukali feasting to the eyes where the full moon in the sky rests in the storeys that are close to each other, as the temple desired by you.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:

நாவார்ந்த பாடலீர் ஆடலரவம் அரைக்கார்த்தீர்
பாவார்ந்த பல்பொருளின் பயன்களானீ ரயன்பேணும்
பூவார்ந்த பொய்கைகளும் வயலுஞ்சூழ்ந்த பொழிற்புகலித்
தேவார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாகத் திகழ்ந்தீரே.

You are singing the Vēdas in your mouth, you tied round your waist a dancing cobra.

கையிலார்ந்த வெண்மழுவொன் றுடையீர்கடிய கரியின்றோல்
மயிலார்ந்த சாயன்மட மங்கைவெருவ மெய்போர்த்தீர்
பயிலார்ந்த வேதியர்கள் பதியாய்விளங்கும் பைம்புகலி
எயிலார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக விசைந்தீரே.

You have in your hand a white-hot iron. You covered your body with the skin of a fearful elephant to make the young lady having the tenderness of a peacock, to be frightened. You agreed to reside in the temple having a wall of enclosure in fertile Pukali which is shining as the place of Vedhiyar (Brahmins) who always train themselves in Vēdas and other arts, as the temple desired by you.

உருவார்ந்த மெல்லியலோர் பாகமுடையீர் அடைவோர்க்குக்
கருவார்ந்த வானுலகங் காட்டிக்கொடுத்தல் கருத்தானீர்
பொருவார்ந்த தெண்கடலொண் சங்கந்திளைக்கும் பூம்புகலித்
திருவார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாகத் திகழ்ந்தீரே.

Today is Holi Festival.  The day on which Manmatha is burnt and from Siva's eyes,
comes the fire which is dropped in Saravana Pond, and from there, Muruga comes forth
and He kills Surapadma and his brothers, to relieve the devas from the suffering.

This festival is celebrated in North India and in parts of Northern Karnataka.

Arunachala Siva. 

21.  Investigate into the comparisons and contrasts, and actions and inactions of things. I am if the form of Being Awareness Bliss. This world is ungenerated.

22. Brahman alone is all of this. This world is expanse of consciousness.  Brahman alone is the supreme bliss, the Lord, akin to all pervasive space.

23. Brahman is indeed Existence Awareness Bliss, ever unapproachable by speech.  Brahman alone is all of this. Some say it is, some say it is not.

24. Even an iota of Bliss, is real and unreal as well.  Brahman alone is all this  -- always just real, indeed.

25.  Brahman alone is all of this, a mass of Consciousness and Bliss, embodied. Brahman alone is being and reality.  I am the ancient and the great.

26. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, stationed as the warp and woof. Brahman is indeed Existence Awareness Bliss, the form of all and the ancient.

27.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the undiminishing, supreme Bliss. Brahman is indeed Existence Awareness Bliss, transcending the delusive power of
Maya and taintless.

28. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, simply existence, joy of joys. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, of the nature of unitary consciousness.

29.  Brahman is indeed, Being Awareness Bliss, bereft of all distinction. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, abiding here as manifold forms.

30.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the subject  and circumstance as well. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, of the nature of transcendental Light.

Around nine that night the train puffed into Tiruvannamalai station. No lights were burning and only from the conversation of passengers I knew which station it was.
I watched if anyone was alighting from the train.  A person sitting opposite descended into the darkness and I followed suit.  It now came as a revelation to me that missing the morning train was itself an outcome of Bhagavan's grace!  Had I taken that train, I could not have disembarked at Tiruvannamalai in broad daylight.  I simply followed the other passenger not knowing where he was heading.  Nor had I any idea of the distance I covered following him.

At last, my 'guide' stopped when he came by a mantapam (road side resting halls, open on all sides, built to provide shelter to travelers in transit).  With his towel, he whisked the floor clean of dust and lay down to sleep. I too followed suit and instantly fell blissfully asleep.  Two days without food and overcome by exhaustion, yet I was thrilled at having arrived at my destination.  When I awoke, it was about 5 am.  There was no sign of my 'guide'.  Ahead there stood the Hill Arunachala, in full view.

Recalling to mind the letters of Ramakrishana Swami, the friend whom I had earlier dispatched here, which described landmarks to reach Bhagavan's Asramam, I reached the foot of the Hill immediately behind the Arunachaleswara Temple. There I saw steps leading up the Hill, but at three different spots.  They left me puzzled.  Taking a chance, I ventured up the steps on the right side.  A little away up I could see a building and approached it.  There I saw a person, (the well known Jadai Swami) attired in the ochre with tresses of hair reaching down to the floor.  Having seen Bhagavan's photograph before, I knew that this man was not he and bolted back down the steps.  I believed at that time that ascetics wearing long tresses would throw curses at you when disturbed.  I now took the flight of steps in the middle.  A little away I came across a tank (the Paadatirtham) and saw two peoples standing by its bank (later I learnt that the two were Tambiran Swami and Kamakshi, Mudaliar Patti's son and daughter in law.).


Arunachala Siva.                                 

When evening came, I approached the ticket counter half an hour in advance, -- only
to be told that tickets to Tiruvannamalai station would not be issued!  This information, the reason for which I could not guess, left me stunned. An elderly man by my side, seeing my plight called me and queried the reason for my despair, and came out with a solution. He said, 'There has been an outbreak of plague in Tiruvannamalai, but the epidemic has now lost its intensity. Still, the railways have not resumed issuing tickets to that station.  You can, instead, buy a ticket to Tirukoilur (which was some twenty miles beyond Tiruvannamalai and board the train.  On the way, this train would anyhow halt at Tiruvannamalai to unload mail bags.  You too can detrain under cover of darkness.'

This piece of advice came as a great relief. I tendered all the change I had and asked for a ticket to Tirukoilur, but the amount was still a quarter anna short for the price of  the ticket.  Thoroughly vexed, I retired to a corner of the platform thinking only of Bhagavan. And Oh! What compassion!  I spotted a quarter anna coin lying nearby between the tracks. Grabbing it with all haste I rushed again to the ticket counter.  My train steamed into the station just as the ticket fell to my hand.  I was wonderstruck at Bhagavan's act of grace towards this poor boy.  It was undoubtedly a miracle that I had been meted out with the exact amount I needed, no more, no less!  May be it was a ruling from Bhagavan that those coming under His grace would be provided with the just barest necessities!
