Verse  3:


கல்லால் நிழல்மே யவனே கரும்பின்
வில்லான் எழில்வே வவிழித் தவனே
நல்லார் தொழுநா கேச்சுர நகரில்
செல்வா எனவல் வினைதேய்ந் தறுமே.

Siva who is seated under the shade of the banyan tree known as Kallāl!
[Kallāl - the banyan tree without aerial roots.], one who opened the frontal eye to burn the beauty of Maṉmathaṉ (Cupid) who has sugar-cane as his bow!
To praise him as the god in the city of Nagechuram which is worshipped by good people! Irresistible Karmas will gradually decrease and disappear.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:


சிறவார் புரமூன் றெரியச் சிலையில்
உறவார் கணையுய்த் தவனே உயரும்
நறவார் பொழில்நா கேச்சுர நகருள்
அறவா எனவல் வினையா சறுமே.

Siva who discharged a long arrow having fixed it in the bow to burn the three cities of the enemies who had no merit. To praise as the god in the city of Nagechuram which has tall gardens in which there is plenty of honey.
The irresistible karmas will quickly leave us.


Arunachala Siva.

Tiru Nagechuram:

Verse  1:

பொன்நேர் தருமே னியனே புரியும்
மின்நேர் சடையாய் விரைகா விரியின்
நன்னீர் வயல்நா கேச்சுர நகரின்
மன்னே யெனவல் வினைமாய்ந் தறுமே.


Siva who has a brilliant body like the gold!
Who has twisted matted locks  like the lightning!
And who is the Lord in the city of Nagechuram which has fields fed by the fertile water of the swift-flowing Kāviri.
to utter the above-mentioned names.
the irresistible karmas will vanish and completely leave us.

Arunachala Siva.

His son was pleased with the new mare and would often ride it for pleasure.
One day while cantering out on the pastures she slipped, fell and rolled on the
young man's leg, which was shattered.  From then on he walked with a severe limp.
Again the neighbors came to the old man's house to offer sympathy for the bad luck
that had crippled his son.  He again said, 'May be. May be not.' It was suggested that the old man sell the mare because it was obviously ill omened, and others advised that he should slaughter the animal in revenge.  The old man did neither.  He suggested that they should not feel sorrow, for his son, nor anger towards the mare.  It was an accident that could not be predicted, and there was nothing he or they could do to change it.  The neighbors were convinced that the old man was a fool.

Some years later a large enemy force invaded the country, and an order was decreed
by the emperor that all young men were to be drafted into the army to defend their country. Because the old man's son was seriously disabled, and in fact, was a liability
he was not compelled to join in the fighting.  The war was savage and many warriors died.  Many young men of the village were killed, but the crippled son was spared.  The neighbors were envious of the old man who was free from sorrow that infected the village, and told him so. With equanimity undisturbed by either good or bad luck,
he replied:  'May be.  May be not.'

RESTRAINT:

Restraint is not a word one often hears these days.  It is more likely that we hear about excess, indulging oneself. Restraint is not restriction, rather it is positive self control. We restrain ourselves because we reflect that we can act in a better way. For example, we restrain ourselves from spending our hard earned salary on a new enticing mobile phone because we want to save money to visit Arunachala. We evaluate, we discriminate between what is of value and what is not.

Restraint can have the implication of deprivation, that one is deliberately missing out on something. But what are we missing out on?  Quite often it is something we do not
need. For example, we restrain ourselves from a second helping of food because we are satisfied and any more would just be greed. But how do you know when to be restrained in our behavior or thoughts, especially when we are surrounded by endless
array of advertisements or social peer pressure to acquire, do,acquiesce or compromise our beliefs and values for the sake of something new or inviting?
Temptation is a powerful intoxicant. And lastly, how do we restrain ourselves in the
face of long enterenched habits that we know are not helping us?

GRATITUDE -:

There is a story attributed to Chuangn Tzu, the legendary Chinese Taoist Sage.
Although, as is so often the case, there are many variations of the story, in the main
it goes something like this:

There was an old man who was well regarded in his village for his wisdom.  He had
two abiding interests in life: his horses and his son, whom he loved above all else.
He and his son shared their passion for horses and together they would ride out far and wide. The happy family and the valuable horses the old man owned were seen as
the good fortune that life had lavished on him.  When neighbors congratulated the old man on his luck, he replied enigmatically, 'May be. May be not.'

One morning, one of the old man's cherished stallions escaped.  The neighbors heard the news and expressed sympathy over the ill luck of the loss of such a valuable horse, but oddly enough the old man was not distraught.  He again said: 'May be.
May be not.'  He did not seem to consider that losing the prized horse was necessarily
bad luck.  It could not be predicted that the horse would escape, and now there was nothing that could be done about it.  It just happened. The neighbors also realized that there was nothing to be done and if the old man was not feeling sad why should they?

Soon after, the stallion reappeared and with him was a beautiful mare that came from a rare breed of horse noted for their stamina.  When the neighbors heard of this,
they quickly came to admire the mare and congratulate the old man on his good fortune.  Again, the old man was not thrilled at what happened.  He again said,
'May be. Maybe not.'  He explained that it was not necessarily good luck which had brought him this beautiful mare.  It just happened, and there was no reason to get
over excited.  Puzzled the neighbors left

Verse  11:

வெண்நா வலமர்ந் துறைவே தியனைக்
கண்ணார் கமழ்கா ழியர்தந் தலைவன்
பண்ணோ டிவைபா டியபத் தும்வல்லார்
விண்ணோ ரவரேத் தவிரும் புவரே.

On Siva who revealed the Vēdas, and dwells under the white jamoon plum tree desiring it. Jnana Sambandhan, the chief of the residents of Sirkazhi whose fame has spread everywhere, and which is a feast to the eye the celestial beings will wish to praise those who are capable of reciting these ten verses which were composed with melody-type.

Tiru Anaikka Padigam concluded.
