Verse  3:


விரவி நாளும் விழா விடைப்பொலி தொண்டர் வந்து வியந்து பண்செயக்
குரவ மாரு நீழற்பொழின்மல்கு கோட்டாற்றில்
அரவ நீள்சடை யானை யுள்கிநின் றாத ரித்துமுன் அன்பு செய்தடி
பரவு மாறுவல் லார்பழிபற் றறுப்பாரே.


In Koṭṭāṟu where gardens giving shade are prosperous in which bottle flower trees are numerous, and the eminent devotees join daily in the festivals and sing with wonder.
those who are able to praise the feet (of Siva) cherishing them with love and standing in his presence wishing for him, thinking of Siva who has long matted locks on which there is a cobra, will cut all reproach and attachment.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:

நின்று மேய்ந்து நினைந்து மாகரி நீரொ டும்மலர் வேண்டி வான்மழை
குன்றி னேர்ந்துகுத்திப் பணிசெய்யுங் கோட்டாற்றுள்
என்றும் மன்னிய எம்பி ரான்கழல் ஏத்தி வானர சாள வல்லவர்
பொன்று மாறறியார் புகழார்ந்த புண்ணியரே.


The big elephant standing, grazing and thinking, piercing the cloud in the sky rising like a hill, desiring water and flowers, in Kōttāṟu where it does service to god.
Those who can rule over the heaven praising the feet of our master who permanently dwells there do not know death. They are virtuous people whose fame has spread all over the world.

Arunachala Siva.

Tiruk Kottaru:

Verse 1:

கருந்த டங்கண்ணின் மாத ராரிசை செய்யக் காரதிர் கின்ற பூம்பொழிற்
குருந்த மாதவியின் விரைமல்கு கோட்டாற்றில்
இருந்த எம்பெரு மானை யுள்கி இணைய டிதொழு தேத்தும் மாந்தர்கள்
வருந்து மாறறியார் நெறிசேர்வர் வானூடே.

When the ladies with black and large eyes sing sweet music, thinking of our Lord who dwells in Kōṭṭāṟu where in the flower gardens the clouds thunder, and the fragrance of the wild lime tree and common delight of the woods is increasing those who worship with joined hands, and praise, the two feet will not know any suffering, will reach the world of bliss passing through heaven.

Arunachala Siva.

Today is Masi month, Magha Nakshatra.  There will be abhishekam, alankaram and arti
for Chidambaram Nataraja.  The Nataraja idol will be brought to the 1000 pillared hall
and these will be done. Hundreds of devotees will witness this rare event.

Chapter 33:

1. Ribhu: I tell you, the supreme Brahman alone is.  This word is ungenerated.  I am only the state of Being and Bliss.  This world is ungenerated.

2. I am only the self, the supreme Brahman, not the world that seen separate. I am only the state of Being and Bliss. The world is ungenerated.

3. I am only the state of Being and Bliss. I am the embodiment of the state of Awareness and Bliss. I alone am, I alone am, the only one.  I alone am higher than the highest.

4. Being Consciousness Bliss, this one am I, indeed,Brahman alone. I am, ever resplendent. Such a form from wherever, is unreal.

5. 'You' - this much is the supreme Brahman, the form full of Consciousness and Bliss.
The form of Consciousness, the expanse of consciousness; consciousness alone is the supreme joy.

6. I am only the Self, not the unreal.  I am the established, the supreme Guru.  There is no time. There is no world either, only erroneous conception.

7. I alone am the supreme Brahman. I alone am the ever existent Siva. I am only Pure Awareness, the experience of pure serenity.

8.  I am only non dual Bliss. I am inexhaustible, I am the great one. All is always only
Brahman. All is only blemishless Brahman.

9.  All is Brahman and naught else. All is Brahman, the sentient. I am of the form of the all illuminating. I am indeed the mind adorable to all.

10. I shine alone. I am without the attained and the unattained.  I am of the form of the indweller of all, with the characteristic of the all witnessing.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

With these words I put him on the train myself.  Two days later his relatives came to me looking for him and asked, 'Where is he gone?  Only you must have sent him away.' I replied, 'I did not send him on my own.  He asked me for directions and I told him.  He has gone only to Tiruvannamalai.'  A week later I received a letter from Ramakrishna, accompanied by a portrait of Bhagavan and a copy of Bhagavan's Arunachala Aksharamanamalai. Seeing Bhagavan's portrait filled me with joy and peace.

The pre determined day of my guru's entombment was nearing.  There was an increasing swell of people and uproar and excitement all around.  Beginning three days prior to the event predicted, the Swami partook only a diet of milk.  D-day came, and policemen had to be deployed to control the surging crowd of onlookers. Afternoon at three, the Swami marched down the samadhi cave. At close proximity
were myself, his foremost disciple, members of his family and others intimate with him. The Swami now said, 'My head will keep shaking for a while.  When its shaking stops, close the tomb with this huge stone slab.'  We waited to carry out his instructions.  Half an hour went by and then an hour.  Still nothing happened. The Swami, who could no more bear to sit in, rose up, came out, took to his heels, and vanished into the mass of onlookers.  Abusing him, and calling him a fraud, the disappointed crowd dispersed.

By now a few months had gone by since my stay at Pudupalayam.  I decided to return home and continue my practice back there, so took leave of the Swami. Back home,
observing silence, I practiced rigorously but could make no progress. I continued in a state of limbo for a couple of years, losing my earlier poise, but not gaining any new ground. While so, my guru, after undertaking a tour of several places in Tamizh Nadu, now returned.  In his entourage came some wealthy, influential persons, and with them the Gounder of Pudupalayam too.  The Swami now made a pronouncement that he shall enter into Jeeva Samadhi (entombment while alive) on a particular day of a particular month a year from hence.  He added that these wealthy folk had come to erect, in advance, a cave like tomb at the proposed samadhi site.

The building of a large tomb was afoot, at a site three miles from my village.  The Swami, obtaining my father's permission, took me to be with him. There he declared that I was his prime disciple and that after his Jeeva Samadhi, I would succeed as the head of his mutt. I was put off by all this ostentation and publicity mongering. My mind was restless.  A few months passed and I could no longer stand it.  In anguish,
I blurted out to the Swami, 'So much time has gone by but I am unable to experience Self realization. Are there no realized souls living today, like the Maharishis of yore who had lived during the ancient times of the Yoga Vasishtam?'

To my query, the Swami replied, 'Oh, yes! There lives a sage in Tiruvannamalai whose name is Ramana Maharshi. He attained the experience of Jnana at the age of sixteen and abides ever in that state. I visited Him and had His darshan.'  I was amazed at this news, and felt as though struck by a surge of electric current. It was an exhilaration the likes of which I had never before felt.  So excited was I, I wanted to fly to Tiruvannamalai at once.

Instantly I sought permission to proceed there, much to his annoyance. 'I shall be entering Jeeva Samadhi six months from now.  You ought to be present here to take care of things then.  After that, you are at liberty to go where you please,' he admonished me.  I was in a state of despair when a friend of mine from my neighboring village came to see me. His name was Ramakrishna, a year or two older than me.  He had a special affection and regard for me on account of my spiritual disciplines, which he too was after.  He was of a wealthy family and arrangements by his elders were to conduct his wedding.  But he was least inclined towards matrimony and one day he came to me to seek a way out of this immediate tangle.

I immediately told him, 'I hear there is a sage in Tiruvannamalai known as Ramana Maharshi. I myself feel an intense longing to go to Him but I am tied up for the next six months by my guru's orders.  Therefore, you set out forthwith for Tiruvannamalai.
Later on I shall join you.  As soon as you reach there write to me all about the sage and the spiritual teaching you receive from him.'

Verse  11:


இந்து வந்தெழு மாட வீதியெ ழில்கொள் காழிந் நகர்க் கவுணியன்
செந்து நேர்மொழியார் அவர்சேருந் திருக்களருள்
அந்தி யன்னதொர் மேனி யானை அமரர் தம்பெரு மானை ஞானசம்
பந்தன் சொல்லிவை பத்தும்பாடத் தவமாமே.


In Tiruk Kaḷar where the ladies whose words are like chendu, on Siva the god of the immortals, who has a form like the evening sky. Jnana Sambandhan, who was born in the Kavuṇiya Gōthram in the city of beautiful Sirkazhi, which has streets having storeys where the moon stays and rises. If one sings all the ten verses composed by him, it is equal to penance.

Padigam on Tiruk Kalar completed.
