Verse  6:


அரவார்ந்த திருமேனி யானவெண்ணீ றாடினீர்
இரவார்ந்த பெய்பலிகொண் டிமையோரேத்த நஞ்சுண்டீர்
குரவார்ந்த பூஞ்சோலை வாசம்வீசுங் குடவாயில்
திருவார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாகத் திகழ்ந்தீரே.

You bathed in white sacred ash got from a cow on your holy body on which you wear cobras profusely. Receiving the alms that are put into the bowl of a skull, which you get by begging, you consumed the poison to be praised by the celestial beings who do not wink. In Kudavāyil where the beautiful gardens which have common bottle flower trees, spread their fragrance, you were shining in the beautiful temple as your favorite temple.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 5:


இழையார்ந்த கோவணமுங் கீளுமெழிலா ருடையாகப்
பிழையாத சூலம்பெய் தாடல்பாடல் பேணினீர்
குழையாரும் பைம்பொழிலும் வயலுஞ்சூழ்ந்த குடவாயில்
விழவார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக மிக்கீரே.

Having a men's loin-cloth woven with yarn and a strip of cloth used as a waist band as beautiful dress holding on the shoulder a trident which never misses its aim, you linked singing and dancing.  In Kudavāyil surrounded by verdent gardens full of tender leaves, and fields, you were great in the temple which has never-ceasing festivals as your favorite temple.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:


மறியாருங் கைத்தலத்தீர் மங்கைபாக மாகச்சேர்ந்
தெறியாரு மாமழுவு மெரியுமேந்துங் கொள்கையீர்
குறியார வண்டினங்கள் தேன்மிழற்றுங் குடவாயில்
நெறியாருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக நிகழ்ந்தீரே.

You hold a young deer in your hand. You have an idea of holding fire and a big battle-axe which can be thrown on enemies and are united with a lady of distinction as one half. In Kudavāyil where the swarms of bees hum sweetly like honey with the idea of opening the petals of buds, you were present in the temple built according to āgamic rules, as your favorite temple.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 3:

கழலார்பூம் பாதத்தீ ரோதக்கடலில் விடமுண்டன்
றழலாருங் கண்டத்தீ ரண்டர்போற்று மளவினீர்
குழலார வண்டினங்கள் கீதத்தொலிசெய் குடவாயில்
நிழலார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக நிகழ்ந்தீரே.

Siva who wears Kazhal in the feet which are as soft as flower, you have in your neck the heat as a result of consuming the poison which rose in the ocean which has waves.
you grant your grace according to the intensity of devotion when celestial beings praise you, you were present in the temple which has splendor in Kudavāyil where the swarms of bees hum melody types resembling music produced by flute, as your favorite temple.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:

அடியார்ந்த பைங்கழலுஞ் சிலம்புமார்ப்ப வங்கையில்
செடியார்ந்த வெண்டலையொன் றேந்தியுலகம் பலிதேர்வீர்
குடியார்ந்த மாமறையோர் குலாவியேத்துங் குடவாயில்
படியார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாகப் பயின்றீரே.

The golden Kazhal and the anklet that are worn on the feet to make a sound.
You collect alms wandering in the world, holding in the palm a white skull having the stench of flesh. [You] resided in the temple which can be compared to other temples, in Kudavāyil, where Brahmins of noble lineage praise you with delight as your favorite temple.

Arunachala Siva.

Tiruk Kudavayil:

Verse 1:

கலைவாழு மங்கையீர் கொங்கையாருங் கருங்கூந்தல்
அலைவாழுஞ் செஞ்சடையி லரவும்பிறையு மமர்வித்தீர்
குலைவாழை கமுகம்பொன் பவளம்பழுக்குங் குடவாயில்
நிலைவாழுங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக நின்றீரே.

Siva who has a stag in the beautiful hand! Who has red matted locks on which the waves of the Ganga, who has tresses of hair in which there is fragrance, are full,
who made the cobra and the crescent moon to stay there. You stayed as your favorite temple in the temple which is permanent, Kudavāyil, where Plaintain trees ear ripe fruits resembling gold color and Areca-palm fruits resembling coral in color.

Arunachala Siva.

My first teacher, Uncle Noah said words of wisdom that are now embedded in my bones:
'If a star came down from the heavens and unleashed hailstorms and lightning on the Earth, we would perhaps consider it a miracle.  But I would have said that the world is already miraculous. We know that the light of distant stars takes millions upon millions of years to reach us, and that we are seeing these stars not as they are now, but as they were countless eons ago.  So the heavens were set in place before man ever roamed the earth or drank water from any ice cream.  Is all of this not comprable to the miracles of the prophets (anbiyya) and the saints (awiliyya)?'

Why do we not see the miracle in front of our own eyes, instead of concentrating on things we have never seen and know nothing about?

The Earth is a miracle in itself, and man is here to revel in its beauty and rejoice in its never ending renewal, even though this Earth is also flawed, imperfect and, in some ways, impoverished.  And it does not need men who travel on flying carpets, or raise the dead, to make it rich in tenderness and marvel, a home where man may dwell for  time and begin to ponder the beauty of life, the meaning of all his sorrows and the haste with which we depart from this abode.  So listen to the wisdom of your ancestors, preserve the purity of the epics and the romances laden with tradition, but also find you own destiny, pursue your own calling, never stop thirsting for more life and more understanding.  Whether you are 100 years old or only a boy, be alive, love life, drink it in like the water of a cool stream in a barren land.

According to the Juki, divine revelation is woven into the very fabric of the universe. It emanates from the dew that glitters and shines in the morning grass, as from the birds that serenade the rising sun and the full moon that 'pours light into the darkness of the forest.'  Some have contrasted this revelation in nature with more formal, explicit lines of spiritual authority and especially with the mantle of the universal mastery claimed by the priests and the theologians of various religions.  Juke lore, however, sees no contradiction between the authority claimed by the great religions of man and the narrative heritage of the tribe, replete with love of 'the celestial forest', the terrestrial world and the endless flowering, withering and renewal of the entire earth.

Today Sri Vidya Homam is done in Asramam.  This is as per request of Kavya Kanta Ganapati Muni in the beginning.

The Homam is celebrated by digging many homa pits in  the place between Dining Hall and Cow Lakshmi's statue, and the Homam is performed for several hours.  The prasadam is given in the end., along with lunch.

Arunachala Siva.

11.  If the babies mature instantaneously, the world too can be real.  The eternally blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

12.  The world can arise if a crow can find food in an imaginary forests, or, if the explanation of a powerful Mantra could take place as a pleasing, light conversation.

13.  The world would exist, if a human dead a month ago comes back alive. If buttermilk can revert to milk, we can say the world can also occur by and by.

14.  The world would be real if the milk arising from a cow's udder were to flow back into the source.  Let the world be real if clouds can be formed from dust.

15. The world would be if a rutting elephant could be rendered by the hairs of a tortoise.  The world exists if the mount Meru could be moved by the tendrils of a lotus stalk.

16.  This world would be if the ocean could be held by a garland of waves. The world would exist if a lotus could flourish amidst a circle of firms.

17. The world would be if a huge mountain becomes the abode of Indra. The perpetually blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

18.  The world is existent if a fish were to rest inside the lotus, or, if a tiny wave could engulf the ocean or if the mount Meru were to have a tail.

19.  The creation would be if a lion was killed and consumed by a mosquito.  The world would be if the triad of worlds was to fit into the nook of an atom.

20.  The world exists if an object in dream stays put in the waking state.  The world can always be if a speeding river were to stand still.

Arunachala Siva.

My Guru Lord:

21.  Except the God who is my Guru Lord, the master of Mauna, what did other gods do for me?  All the other gods in their heavens exist only for everyone else.  For me, Guru alone is my God.

22.  Our Lord, shining forth resplendently as Swarupa, exists as the repository of grace. When He is waiting for an opportune moment to steal your ego and save you from the misery filled and delusive samsara, do not go after and join the spurious gurus who wander in the streets with the sole aim of stealing your wealth.

23.  To destroy the false first person that rises as I, our Lord incarnated Himself in an appropriate way upon this earth as the Jnana Guru to promulgate the inquiry method,
'Who am I?'.  The way to attain His divine feet of silence that are the state of liberation is to come to Him and remain fully under the dominion of our Lord who is the supreme light of grace, Jnana.

24. Remaining as the sun of Jnana, my Lord, the Sadguru, radiated the light of grace and dispelled completely the dense darkness, the intense delusion in my heart.  Consequently, the distress arising through bewilderment, which in turn is caused by the obsession with concepts, ended.  This is how my Lord came to exercise His rule over me, I who was such an insignificant one.

25. Our Guru, our Lord Ramana, Sadasivan who is free from from the ego, is the excellent one who speaks only about Jnana, and never utters a single useless word. He is the sea of serenity, free of anger.  He is the wish fulfilling jewel in the hearts of human beings.

26. Because the light of my Guru  whose form is consciousness now flourishes in my heart spontaneously as the Self, I see it continuously, without ever blinking. Will the light that has embraced me and enabled me to attain Mauna through a dead ego ever allow me to blink?

27.  While remaining as the expanse of consciousness that exists as the true eye, my Lord sported before me as the Guru who bestows being consciousness, pouring down the rain of grace that became a great flood, and enabling me the realization of the one deathless reality in the heart.

28.  Our peerless Lord, the Guru who has the true Jnana that is divine grace, is a prosperous person who grants to those who resort to Him the ultimate refuge, the state of Sivam itself, making it become their possession.  But those whose minds are deluded by desire and so on, (kama, krodha, loba, moha, mada, mathsarya), will go to Him and beg only garbage, dry leaves and twigs.

29.  Ramana is the embodiment of reality in whom flourishes abundantly the godly Lordship that is extolled by all the people of the world.  He is the grace bestowing Guru for the science of the supreme (para vidya).  His power of Jnana, the knowledge of reality that is the state of Mauna and which is the perfection of liberation, is extremely difficult for anyone to attain.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

My Guru (continues)

16. At first He appeared separate from me as my mother and father, as the God who bestows grace and eventually as the utterly impartial teacher of true Jnana.  Enabling me to experience bliss, He has now become one with me, as my own non dual Self-nature, that which is entitled to one's love, which confers only goodness.

17.  My God Ramana reigned over me, shining clearly within me as the Self, the formless truth of consciousness, and externally as the Guru who bestows grace-consciousness. As I am firmly established in His feet, there is no delusion for me.

18.  He is the Brahmin (Brahman knower), the embodiment of immaculate grace that is the intrinsic nature of the transcendental Swarupa.  As a consequence of Him abiding in my heart without ever leaving it, the sense of 'I' and 'mine' that are the ego delusion, has been destroyed. In  His state of being the Guru, none can equal or better Him.

19. It is not possible for me to describe even slightly the greatness of the Guru who totally destroyed my mental bewilderment. If I attempt to have thoughts, my mind will ecstatically glorify His nature in the abode of Mauna, that which is the source of the thought that attempted to praise Him.

20.  Because Sivam, ever untouched by name and form, itself took me as its target by becoming the form of the Guru, I have flourishing in my heart a life of resting in the divine feet of silence, that state of distinction in which there is nothing to dwell upon.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:

கொந்தணவும் பொழில்புடைசூழ் கொச்சைமேவு குலவேந்தன்
செந்தமிழின் சம்பந்தன் சிறைவண்புனல்சூழ் திருநல்லூர்ப்
பந்தணவு மெல்விரலாள் பங்கன்றன்னைப் பயில்பாடல்
சிந்தனையா லுரைசெய்வார் சிவலோகஞ்சேர்ந் திருப்பாரே.

Sambandhan, an authority on chaste Tamizh, and the great chief in Kochai surrounded on all sides by gardens where there are bunches of flowers. Those who recite with meditation the verses on Siva, who has a lady who holds in her fingers a ball, as his half, in Tiru Nallūr surrounded by plenty of water which has dams on it, will stay permanently in the world of Siva.

Padigam on Tiru Nallur completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


பொல்லாத சமணரொடு புறங்கூறுஞ் சாக்கியரொன்
றல்லாதா ரறவுரைவிட் டடியார்கள் போற்றோவா
நல்லார்க ளந்தணர்கள் நாளுமேத்துந் திருநல்லூர்
மல்லார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You felt happy in dwelling in the most elegant temple in Tiru Nallūr when the good-natured Brahmins praise you everyday and other devotees who have turned a deaf ear to the religious instructions of the Buddhists, who always slander together with the wicked Jains who are not worthy of regard, praise you without ceasing.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 9:


போதின்மே லயன்றிருமால் போற்றியும்மைக் காணாது
நாதனே யிவனென்று நயந்தேத்த மகிழ்ந்தளித்தீர்
தீதிலா அந்தணர்கள் தீமூன்றோம்புந் திருநல்லூர்
மாதரா ளவளோடு மன்னுகோயில் மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You granted your grace with joy when Brahma who is on a lotus flower, and Vishnu, could not see you and praised with piety `He is the master!` You felt happy in staying permanently in the temple along with the lady, at Tiru Nallūr where the Brahmins who do not commit sinful acts maintain the three fires. [The three fires are spoken in Puṟam also].

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:


காதமரும் வெண்குழையீர் கறுத்தவரக்கன் மலையெடுப்ப
மாதமரு மென்மொழியாண் மறுகும்வண்ணங் கண்டுகந்தீர்
தீதமரா வந்தணர்கள் பரவியேத்துந் திருநல்லூர்
மாதமருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You wear a white ear-ring in one ear.  When the demon lifted the mountain with anger, you felt joy to make the lady with lovable soft words, bewilder. You felt happy in the beautiful temple at Tiru Nallūr where Brahmins who disliked evil acts praise you in the second person and third person, as the temple fit for you.

Arunachala Siva.
