Verse  7:

பொய்துவாழ்வார் மனம்பாழ் படுக்கும் மலர்ப்பூசனை
செய்துவாழ்வார் சிவன்சேவடிக்கே செலுஞ் சிந்தையார்
எய்தவாழ்வார் எழில்நக்க ரெம்மாற் கிடமாவது
கைதல்வேலி கழிசூழ் கடல்நாகைக் காரோணமே.

People leading an unstable life, people who lead a life performing worship with flowers which destroys the activities of the mind, and people who direct their minds to meditate upon the lotus feet of Siva only, Siva is for these people to reach him.
The place of our master who is beautifully naked, is Nākaik Kārōṇam on the shore of the sea and surrounded by backwaters and a fence of fragrant screw-pine.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:

விடையதேறிவ் விடவர வசைத்தவ் விகிர்தரவர்
படைகொள்பூதம் பலபாட ஆடும்பர மரவர்
உடைகொள்வேங்கை யுரிதோ லுடையார்க் கிடமாவது
கடைகொள்செல்வங் கழிசூழ் கடல்நாகைக் காரோணமே.

Siva is different from this world;  He tied in his waist a poisonous cobra; And He rides on a bull. The supreme being who dances when the army of Bhutas many songs.
The place of the god who has his dress a skin flayed from the tiger, is Nākaik Kārōṇam on the shore surrounded by back water and has much wealth got from shops.

Arunachala Siva.

வார்கொள்கோலம் முலைமங்கை நல்லார்மகிழ்ந் தேத்தவே

The young girls who have beautiful breasts on which bodice is worn, to praise him the white crescent moon which is above the sun is present in the beautiful matted locks which contains water. The place of Siva who holds in his hand the weapon of a trident which takes upon itself fighting, is Nākaik Kārōṇam surrounded by back water whose flood which is drawn by the clouds.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:

வண்டுபாட வளர்கொன்றை மாலைமதி யோடுடன்
கொண்டகோலங் குளிர்கங்கை தங்குங்குருள் குஞ்சியுள்
உண்டுபோலும் மெனவைத்து கந்தவொரு வற்கிடம்
கண்டல்வேலி கழிசூழ் கடல்நாகைக் காரோணமே.

The beauty that Siva had with the crescent moon, a garland of Koṉṟai flowers which thrives when the bees hum. On the tuft of hair which is curly and on which the cool Gaṅga stays, the place of the unequaled god who was pleased to place these things for people to say they are in the proper place, is Nākaik Kāroṇam surrounded by backwaters which have a fence of mangrove trees.

Arunachala Siva.

Tiru Nakaik Kakoranam:

Verse  1:

கூனல்திங்கட் குறுங்கண்ணி கான்றந்நெடு வெண்ணிலா
ஏனற்பூத்தம் மராங்கோதை யோடும்விரா வுஞ்சடை
வானநாடன் அமரர்பெரு மாற்கிட மாவது
கானல்வேலி கழிசூழ் கடல்நாகைக் காரோணமே.

The white moonlight which reaches a great distance shed by the curved wreath of a crescent moon worn on the tuft. Siva who has heaven and on whose matted locks the garland of common Kadampa flowers which blossom in the summer are continued;
the place of the chief of the immortals, is Nākaik Kārōṇam* near the sea surrounded by back-water, and as a fence by sea-shore garden.

(*Nagap Pattinam.)

11.  I am without defects.  I have traversed everywhere.  I am of the nature that transcends speech.  I am the supreme Self, unbroken. 

12. Transcending the wondrous and duality, I am the supreme, joyous, equanimous, without inside or outside, without beginning or end and undefined by distinction of all kind.

13.  Bereft of egoism, strengths of all kinds, lust and anger, acquisitiveness, Brahma,
Indra, Vishnu, Varuna, convictions of being and non being,

14. reality of individual, reality of the world, reality of delusion, distinctions such as the Guru and the disciple and certainties of action and inaction --none of these exist in the least.

15. One who proclaims 'You are Brahman', and 'I am Brahman' there of, all knowledge of the Vedanta, the inquiry into all the Vedas,

16. the true nature of the substance called 'this', the experience in the form of 'I', the Vedas, the Siddhanta and worldly distinctions -- none of these exist.

17. All is Brahman.  There is no doubt of this.  Verily, there is nothing as all; just as the peaceful Self, Brahman. I alone am the constant.

18. Differences such as auspicious and inauspicious, defect and non defect are not for me; so also, the existence of mind, existence of the world and the outburst of the intellectual mode.

19. Brahman alone is, ever.  This is true.  This is true, this is the true word. 'This' is the form of Self, duality is only illusion. Man is not supreme.

20.  I am only Being Awareness Bliss.  All is simply the changeless. Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Sadasiva and Isvara,

21. differences of the mind, the world and 'I', activity of the mind, and fear of world, all is bliss, great bliss, the endless bliss of the Self.

General Discussion / Re: Two Lovers, One Beloved - Margaret Laulor:
« on: March 21, 2017, 01:35:04 AM »
Before examining their respective spiritual lives and teachings, it is important to consider certain characteristics of mysticism in general.  Common to the mystical state is an experience of God, a practical experience of the most intense and personal form.
Mysticism is simultaneously an act of the highest love, an act of surrender and an act of supreme perception.  Mysticism is not to be seen as a religion in itself; but rather that which is most vital in all religions, and which revolts against merely formal and lethargic religion.  It is not a philosophical system, although it subscribes to a scheme of things. It is an entirely spiritual activity which transcends the world of senses, yet it entails a definite psychological experience.

To achieve the unitive experience, the mystic must pass from the finite to infinite, from a lower reality to the highest Reality, from a sense of the personality or ego self to being Being itself.  'Mysticism claims that the soul can undertake this tremendous journey and pass from that which is temporal to that which is Eternal, and it bases its claims on certain postulates.' (The Way of the Mystics, Margaret Smith, Oxford University Press, New York.)               

The first one states that 'the soul can see and perceive by a spiritual sense... that
inner sense which is called intuition.'  In this state one receives direct revelation and knowledge of God. 'Mysticism, then, asserts.... that knowledge is not attained only by the sense or intellect or the normal processes of consciousness, but that the highest knowledge is attained... by this spiritual sense of intuition.

Secondly, mysticism maintains that the soul, in order to know God, must itself be a partaker of the Divine Nature. In this context it can be said that there is an inward light or divine spark which seeks to reunite with Eternal Flame.

The third point makes it clear that unless the soul is 'stripped of the veils of selfishness and sensuality' it cannot attain to the knowledge of God. The act of purification requires the seeker to surrender self will, self seeking, and also to still the

Finally, mysticism sees love as the guiding principle and inspiration of the soul journeying to God.  'The mystics, throughout the ages, have conceived of the Object of their search as the Beloved, and it is as lovers that they seek for the communication of their love in union with the One.'

"Do we not love the Castle of the Franks (Europeans or Westerners) that looms large on a mound near Homs?' Uncle Noah had asked theoretically. And do we not consider the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus a poem in stone, or perhaps a whole symphony? Why would anyone try to desecrate these treasures?  Is there no civilization left in the world today?'  He said that those who reduce every discussion to the limited sphere of political or religious dogmas 'are like the governor who asks the frog why it croaks and how it can find peace on a mere pond.  Or like someone who stands in the midst of an ancient forest and can find nothing of worth in it.'

A vital, authentic spiritual tradition, according to Noah, is not the imposition of dogma by force, but the memory of a sacred past and recognition of its beauty and pathos within ourselves.  Truth cannot be imposed on man by force and remain authentic: it must be given  freely, as an infinitely precious gift, like water that is given to the thirsting Earth when it falls from the passing clouds.

Verse  11:

புந்தியார்ந்த பெரியோர்கள் ஏத்தும் புகலூர்தனுள்
வெந்தசாம்பற் பொடிப்பூச வல்லவிடை யூர்தியை
அந்தமில்லா அனலாட லானையணி ஞானசம்
பந்தன்சொன்ன தமிழ்பாடி யாடக்கெடும் பாவமே.

In Pukalūr which is praised by great people of wisdom, on Siva, who smears fine powder of well-burnt ash and who has a bull as his vehicle, who dances in the fire and does not know death, sins will perish if one sings the beautiful Tamizh verses composed by Jnana Sambandhan, and dances out of joy.

Padigam on Pukalur completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 10:

வேர்த்தமெய்யர் உருவத் துடைவிட் டுழல்வார்களும்
போர்த்தகூறைப் போதிநீழ லாரும் புகலூர்தனுள்
தீர்த்தமெல்லாஞ் சடைக்கரந்த தேவன்திறங் கருதுங்கால்
ஓர்த்துமெய்யென் றுணராது பாதந்தொழு துய்ம்மினே.

With perspiring bodies, Jains, who wander naked and the Buddhists who sit under the Peepul tree and who cover their bodies, well considering what they talk about, the god who is in Pukalūr, and who completely concealed the water (of Ganga) knowing that to be not true, save yourselves by worshipping his feet.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:

நேமியானும் முகநான் குடையந்நெறி யண்ணலும்
ஆமிதென்று தகைந்தேத்தப் போயாரழ லாயினான்
சாமிதாதை சரணாகு மென்றுதலை சாய்மினோ
பூமியெல்லாம் புகழ்செல்வம் மல்கும் புகலூரையே.

Vishnu, who has a discus and Brahma of four faces who has the right conduct,
Siva rose as a great column of fire of unbearable heat for them to say these are the feet; this is the head apparently catching hold of them. The father of Swami (Murugaṉ) is the object which is our refuge. Worship lowering your head Pukalūr where wealth which is praised by all the people, is increasing.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:

உய்யவேண்டில் எழுபோத நெஞ்சேயுயர் இலங்கைக்கோன்
கைகளொல்கக் கருவரை யெடுத்தானை யோர்விரலினால்
செய்கைதோன்றச் சிதைத்தருள வல்லசிவன் மேயபூம்
பொய்கைசூழ்ந்த புகலூர் புகழப் பொருளாகுமே.

My mind!  If you want to save yourself, start to go to Pukalūr. Having destroyed by a single toe the King of superior Lanka, who lifted the great mountain, for his hand to sustain injury, and destroyed him, that act to appear permanently in him, you will attain true spiritual wisdom, if you praise Pukalūr, surrounded by natural tanks and in which Siva, who was able to grant boons to Ravanan, desires to dwell.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:

ஆணும்பெண்ணும் மெனநிற்ப ரேனும்அர வாரமாப்
பூணுமேனும் புகலூர்தனக் கோர்பொரு ளாயினான்
ஊணும்ஊரார் இடுபிச்சை யேற்றுண்டுடை கோவணம்
பேணுமேனும் பிரானென்ப ரால்எம்பெரு மானையே.

Though Siva is half male and half female, though he adorns himself as garlands cobras, he is a treasure for Pukalūr.  Eating as food receiving the alms given by the people of the village, though he desires the loin-cloth as his dress, wise people say that our god is the master.

Arunachala Siva.
