Verse  7:


மலிவிழா வீதி மடநல்லார் மாமயிலைக்
கலிவிழாக் கண்டான் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
பலிவிழாப் பாடல்செய் பங்குனி யுத்தரநாள்
ஒலிவிழாக் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.


The god who remained at the temple Kapālicharam witnessing the festival of bustle in the large Mayilai where young innocent ladies crowd in the streets full of festive activities. Do you go without seeing the festival of bustle in the star Uttaram in the month of Paṅguṉi, when songs pertaining to the festival of offerings of food to god are sung. (Paṅguṉi Uttaram is the main annual festival celebrated even today).

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:


மடலார்ந்த தெங்கின் மயிலையார் மாசிக்
கடலாட்டுக் கண்டான் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
அடலானே றூரு மடிக ளடிபரவி
நடமாடல் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.

Siva who witnessed the bath in the sea during the month of Masi, which is proximate to Mayilai which has coconut tree full of flat leaves, dwells with desire in Kapālicharam. Do you go without seeing the dancing of the devotees who sing in praise of the feet of the Lord who rides a strong bull capable of killing.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:


மைப்பூசு மொண்கண் மடநல்லார் மாமயிலைக்
கைப்பூசு நீற்றான் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்

தைப்பூசங் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.


Siva who dwells with desire in Kapālīcharam and who is in the form of the sacred ash, in the great Mayilai, where beautiful ladies who coat their bright eyes with collyriyum gather together.  Do you go without seeing the festival in Poosam, in the month of Thai, when ladies wearing suitable jewels celebrate the festival with white rice soaked in ghee?

Verse  4:

ஊர்திரை வேலை யுலாவு முயர்மயிலைக்
கூர்தரு வேல்வல்லார் கொற்றங்கொள் சேரிதனில்
கார்தரு சோலைக் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
ஆர்திரைநாள் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.

In the streets where people who are well-versed in wielding the sharp spear, gain victory over their opponents in the great Mayilai, where the crawling waves move about. Do you go with out seeing the festival on the star Ardra of Siva, who dwell in Kapālicharam which has gardens as cool as clouds;

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:


வளைக்கை மடநல்லார் மாமயிலை வண்மறுகில்
துளக்கில் கபாலீச் சரத்தான்றொல் கார்த்திகைநாள்

விளக்கீடு காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.

Tiru Mylapore:

Verse 1:


மட்டிட்ட புன்னையங் கானன் மடமயிலைக்
கட்டிட்டங் கொண்டான் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
ஒட்டிட்ட பண்பி னுருத்திர பல்கணத்தார்க்
கட்டிட்டல் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.


Siva dwells permanently in the beautiful Mayilai which has a sea-shore garden of mast-wood trees which pour honey;  [Mayilai is the corruption of Mayilāppūr] desired Kapālīcharam [Mayilāppūr is the name of the place; Kapalicharam is the name of the temple].  Do you go without witnessing the food cooked and served to the groups of many Saivaite devotees who are united with Siva non dually beautiful lady like a portrait!

Interestingly, while in Skandasramam, my sister remarked that the energy in the Cave began vibrating in a horizontal manner. In the Cave I remarked that the energy seemed to start vibrating in a vertical manner.  In Virupaksha Cave, our experiences reversed with my sister feeling the energy vibrating horizontally, with blue light, and myself horizontally.  Except in these two instances, the force field vibrated in all directions, simultaneously. 

We remained in this force field for two days.  As we drove away from Arunachala and back to Chennai, the force field gradually dissipated. 

Bhagavan Sri Ramana sang a song about Arunachala in His Eight Stanzas to Sri Arunachala, verse one:

Look, oh, great wonder!  There it stands as if insentient. Mysterious is the way it works, beyond all human understanding. From my unthinking childhood the immensity of Arunachala had shone in my awareness, but even when I learned from someone that it was only Tiruvannamalai, I did not realize its meaning.  When it stilled my mind and drew me to itself, and I came near, I saw that it was the Immovable, stillness absolute.

For thirty five years I had been visiting Tiruvannamalai solely for Sri Ramana and
Sri Ramanasramam.  I came to sit in Sri Ramana's shrine and to absorb Sri Ramana's teachings. I paid little attention to the Hill.  It is true that I had performed many a pradakshina around Arunachala.  However, I did this, mainly because Sri Ramana highly recommended people to do it.

By luring me, again and again, as I worked on the Sri Ramana's book, and by the good fortune of having a sister whose presence was required, I eventually had Arunachala's darshan. As Sri Ramana sang,

The mountain is mysterious and mysterious in the way it works. It is not just an insentient pile of earth and rocks.  It is Lord Siva, the One Self, standing there in all its glory for those who are given eyes to see.

At times seekers ask the question: 'How does the Sage gave instruction?  It is from the state of ignorance?' If this were so, the mind would not have been dissolved, the threefold differentiation  of the knower, knowledge, and the known could not have been merged. So what would the Sage be able to give you?  Where could He lead you?
But there is a stage where this question does not arise.  It is the body that is the obstacle to Supreme Knowledge?  Is there even a question of whether the body exists or not?  At a certain level this question is simply not there. On the plane where this question arises, one is not in the state of pure Being, and one thinks question can be raised and also replied to. But the answer lies where there is no such thing as questioning and answering where there are no 'others', no divisions -- only the Self,
Sri Ramana, Arunachala.

concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Theories are but ways of putting words together.  Theories are neither right or wrong.
They are attempts to explain the inexplicable.  The theory does not matter half so much as the way it is being tested, put into practice.  Sincerity, earnestness, and full concentration are what counts, not the theory itself.

After a few days in Chennai, we drove to Tiruvannamalai.  For the first two hours of the drive, our intense discussions continued.  Back and forth our presuppositions flew, often wrestling like two mad monsters!.

At once moment, about five or so kilometers from Arunachala, we simultaneously looked up and, there it was.  Arunachala, looming auspiciously through the front windshield, towering right in front seen it on numerous occasions, seen it exclusively as a mountain. 

We both went dead silent.  The silence hung thick in the air for a few minutes.  Then, I said to my sister, 'Do you feel that?' She replied, force field all around me.  The silence is overpowering.'  I said, 'I feel pulsing through it.  It is like liquid, tangible Consciousness.'  I really cannot come up with a physical example that accurately depicts this force field.

We drove to the Sri Ramana Asramam. The force field was still palpably felt.  It was so strong and so tangible that it was easily felt wherever we went.  It was as though we had entered into the aura of Arunachala and the experience continued.  The incredible thunderous silence continued.

We went into Sri Ramana's Shrine and it was there.  It was there in the Mother's Temple. It was there in the accommodation office.  Then we walked up to the Caves
where Sri Ramana had spent twenty three years.  We entered the Virupaksha Cave and it was there. We entered Skandasramam and it was there.  The force field and silence ever present, a physical Presence.

Verse  11:

ஞாலம் புகழ்காழி ஞானசம் பந்தன்றான்
நாலு மறையோதும் நாலூர் மயானத்தைச்
சீலம் புகழாற் சிறந்தேத்த வல்லாருக்
கேலும் புகழ்வானத் தின்பா யிருப்பாரே.

On Nālūr Mayāṉam where the four Vēdas are chanted, Jnana Sambandhan, who is native of Sirkazhi,  which is praised by the people of the world, fame will be appropriate to those who can praise, by being eminent by fame, the attributes of Siva,
after death they will dwell in heaven happily.

Padigam on Tiru Nalur Mayanam completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:

துன்பாய மாசார் துவராய போர்வையார்
புன்பேச்சுக் கேளாதே புண்ணியனை நண்ணுமின்கள்
நண்பாற் சிவாயவெனா நாலூர் மயானத்தே
இன்பா யிருந்தானை யேத்துவார்க் கின்பமே.

Without listening to the mean words of the Jains who are full of dirt which issues a very offensive smell and Buddhists who cover their bodies with a cloth soaked in myrtle-dye, devotees! Approach Siva who is the embodiment of all virtues.
uttering the Mantras of Sivāya having restrained the senses. Those who praise Siva who dwelt with pleasure in Nālūr Mayāṉam will enjoy happiness only.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:


மாலோடு நான்முகனும் நேட வளரெரியாய்
மேலோடு கீழ்காணா மேன்மையான் வேதங்கள்
நாலோடு மாறங்கம் நாலூர் மயானத்தெம்
பாலோடு நெய்யாடி பாதம் பணிவோமே.

Siva has the eminence of not being able to be seen by Vishnu and Brahma, who has four faces, as he assumed the form of a growing fire, though they searched for its top and bottom in the sky and the underworld. We shall pay homage to the feet of our Siva who bathes in ghee along with milk and who dwells in Nālūr Mayāṉam and who is himself the four Vēdas and the six Aṅkams.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:


பத்துத் தலையோனைப் பாதத் தொருவிரலால்
வைத்து மலையடர்த்து வாளோடு நாள்கொடுத்தான்
நத்தி னொலியோவா நாலூர் மயானத்தென்
அத்த னடிநினைவார்க் கல்ல லடையாவே.

Pressing firmly with a single toe, the demon who had ten heads, crushing him under the mountain, Siva granted him long life in addition to a sword. Sufferings will not come near those who fix their thoughts on the feet of my father in Nālūr Mayāṉam where the sound of conch never ceases during times of worship.
[conch blown during times of worship is one of rituals in temples;]

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:


கண்பாவு வேகத்தாற் காமனைமுன் காய்ந்துகந்தான்
பெண்பாவு பாகத்தான் நாகத்தோ லாகத்தான்
நண்பார் குணத்தோர்கள் நாலூர் மயானத்தை
எண்பாவு சிந்தையார்க் கேலா விடர்தானே.

Siva became great by destroying Manmatha, long ago by the speed of the fire which spread from his frontal eye. He has a half in which a lady has spread herself.
Sufferings will not happen to those who meditate upon Nālūr Mayāṉam where people who are friendly towards all, live.

Arunachala Siva.
