Explanation for verses 162 and 163:

Here it is being stated that the aspirant must validate the fact that the world is unreal
in itself from his own experience. TCS notes in his summary of the verses' meaning:
Jnana is the true realization that all the faculties (of body and mind) are unreal.

The image evoked in the latter part of the verses is that of the someone who is not satisfied that the absence of darkness and the full illumination of his surroundings is sufficient proof of the existence of the sun, but insists on trying to look directly at it,
to make sure that it is there.  Unable to see it by looking directly at it, he nevertheless perseveres in his attempts to do so, repeatedly turning his head to look at it, then blinking and turning away, and so forth.  In the same way the ignorant person is unable to seek assurance of the existence of the Self in the blissful serenity of his own being, but is driven to continually seek objective proof of its existence through the mind and senses.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Today is the Punarvasu star day, of Thai month, the birth star of Bhagavan.  Today there will be special abhishekam, alankaram and arti for Ramaneswara Maha Lingam followed by good meals with sweets etc.,

I shall give below the verses of Muruganar on Punarvasu star, to remember this day
and for reading:


I shall give in this context, some translations from Guru Vachaka Kovai of Muruganar.

Destruction of Mind:

913. Unsteady and wavering minds find only
        Failure and frustration always.

914. The restless mind moves with a speed
        That shames the God of Wind . To starve it,
        So that it, like a cripple, stays
        Totally immobile is to attain
        Actual Immortality.

915. It is true wisdom to pluck out
        Before they grow too strong the weeds
        Of lust and anger and greed, and keep
        The mind serene and self contained
        Like a vast ocean deep and calm
        Untroubled by a single ripple
        Raised by any wind.

918.  He who has vanquished thought, he only
         Sits like an emperor on the neck
         Of the  majestic elephant, Jnana,
         Know for certain that the mind's
         Movements alone give rise to birth
         And every cruel pain and sorrow.

920.   Even as the ego does not die
          Unless the Self's  glance falls on it,
          The painful dream of this phenomenal
          World will never disappear
           Unless the mind meets glorious death.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:

தண்புன லோங்குதண் ணந்தராய் மாநகர்
நண்புடை ஞானசம் பந்தனம் பானுறை
விண்பொழிற் கோழம்ப மேவிய பத்திவை
பண்கொளப் பாடவல் லார்க்கில்லை பாவமே.

Jnana Sambandhan who is friendly to all and is a native of the big city of cool Tarāy where there is plenty of cool water. For those who are able to sing these ten verses composed on Kōzhambam which has tall gardens that seem to touch the sky and where Sivapirāṉ dwells, with musical tunes, there will be no sins.

Padigam on Tiruk Kozhambam concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:

புத்தருந் தோகையம் பீலிகொள் பொய்ம்மொழிப்
பித்தரும் பேசுவ பேச்சல்ல பீடுடைக்
கொத்தலர் தண்பொழிற் கோழம்ப மேவிய
அத்தனை யேத்துமின் அல்லல் அறுக்கவே.

The talk that the followers of Buddha and the mad people who always talk falsehood and who carry a bundle of peacock's feathers are not talks having any substance.
Praise the father in the great Kōzhambam which has gardens where bunches of flowers blossom to cut at the root of your sufferings (People of this word!).

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:

நெடியானோ டயனறி யாவகை நின்றதோர்
படியானைப் பண்டங்க வேடம் பயின்றானைக்
கடியாருங் கோழம்ப மேவிய வெள்ளேற்றின்
கொடியானைக் கூறுமின் உள்ளங் குளிரவே.


Siva who had a form which could not be known by the tall Vishnu and Brahma who practised the dance, Pānṭaraṅkam with the appropriate dress. Utter the names of Siva who has the flag on which is drawn the form of a bull and who dwells in Kōzhampam which has fragrance for your hearts to derive satisfaction.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 8:


விற்றானை வல்லரக் கர்விறல் வேந்தனைக்
குற்றானைத் திருவிர லாற்கொடுங் காலனைச்
செற்றானைச் சீர்திக ழுந்திருக் கோழம்பம்
பற்றானைப் பற்றுவார் மேல்வினை பற்றாவே.


Siva who pounded the formerly victorious king of the strong demons  who has an army of archers, with his beautiful toe, and who destroyed the cruel god of death,
the karmas will not have in their grip those who seek as refuge Siva who is very much attached to Tiruk Kozhambam, whose greatness is prominent.

Arunachala Siva.

பண்டாலின் னீழலா னைப்பரஞ் சோதியை

கொண்டானைக் கூறுமி னுள்ளங் குளிரவே.

Siva who sat under the shade of the banyan tree in the distant past,
the supreme being as the light divine, who made the three cities of the enemies to burn simultaneously.Say the name of Siva who had as his temple Kohambam which spreads fragrance, to make your minds satisfied. (People of this world!)

ஊரானை யேத்துமின் நும்மிட ரொல்கவே.

Siva who is in the form of the clouds, who wears on his chest a garland made of Koṉṟai flowers spreading their fragrance, who has an increasing fame by having with joy on one half a young lady.

Verse  4:


சடையானைத் தண்மல ரான்சிர மேந்திய
விடையானை வேதமும் வேள்வியு மாயநன்
குடையானைக் குளிர்பொழில் சூழ்திருக் கோழம்பம்
உடையானை யுள்குமின் உள்ளங் குளிரவே.

Siva who is prominent by his matted locks, who rides on a bull and holds in his hand the skull of Brahma seated in a cool flower, who has the good things of Vēdas and sacrifices. (cf.7th verse of this decade). Think of Siva who is the Lord of Kozhambam surrounded by cool gardens, for your minds to feel satisfied.

Arunachala Siva.

நீற்றானை நீள்சடை மேனிறை வுள்ளதோர்
