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.

Verse  6:


கண்ணார் நுதலான் கனலா டிடமாகப்
பண்ணார் மறைபாடி ஆடும் பரஞ்சோதி
நண்ணார் புரமெய்தான் நாலூர் மயானத்தை
நண்ணா தவரெல்லாம் நண்ணாதார் நன்னெறியே.


Siva has a frontal eye.  The supreme being, as the light divine who dances singing Vēdas which are full of music, having fire as the dancing stage. All those who do not approach Nālūr Mayāṉam of Siva, who shot an arrow on the cities of enemies, do not approach the path of virtue.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:


கறையார் மணிமிடற்றான் காபாலி கட்டங்கன்
பிறையார் வளர்சடையான் பெண்பாக னண்பாய
நறையார் பொழில்புடைசூழ் நாலூர் மயானத்தெம்
இறையானென் றேத்துவார்க் கெய்துமா மின்பமே.


Siva has a neck resembling the sapphire on account of the poison stationed there.
He has a skull, holds a battle-axe.  He has  growing matted locks in which there is a crescent moon.  He has as a half a lady very friendly to him. Happiness will reach those who praise Siva as our master in Nālūr Mayāṉam which is surrounded on all sides by gardens which have abundant honey.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:

கோலத்தார் கொன்றையான் கொல்புலித்தோ லாடையான்
நீலத்தார் கண்டத்தான் நெற்றியோர் கண்ணினான்
ஞாலத்தார் சென்றேத்தும் நாலூர் மயானத்தில்
சூலத்தா னென்பார்பாற் சூழாவாந் தொல்வினையே.

Siva who wears beautiful Koṉṟai flowers, who dresses himself with the skin of a tiger capable of killing, has a neck of blue color, has an eye on the forehead.
The accumulated old Karmas will not surround those who praise Siva, as the god with a trident, in Nālūr Mayāṉam to which people of this world go on a pilgrimage and praise it.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:

கல்லா னிழன்மேவிக் காமுறுசீர் நால்வர்க்கன்
றெல்லா வறனுரையும் இன்னருளால் சொல்லினான்
நல்லார் தொழுதேத்தும் நாலூர் மயானத்தைச்
சொல்லா தவரெல்லாஞ் செல்லாதார் தொன்னெறிக்கே.


About Nālūr Mayāṉam which good people worship with joined hands and praise and which is the abode of Siva, who gave completely all the moral instructions on that distant day to four sages of desirable fame, sitting under the shade of Kallāl tree, by his great grace. All those who do not speak about that shrine are those who do not tread the ancient religion of Saivam.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:

சூடும் பிறைச்சென்னிச் சூழ்கா டிடமாக
ஆடும் பறைசங் கொலியோ டழகாக
நாடுஞ் சிறப்போவா நாலூர் மயானத்தைப்
பாடுஞ் சிறப்போர்பாற் பற்றாவாம் பாவமே.

Siva who wears a crescent moon on his head will dance beautifully in the cremation ground surrounded on all sides by Bhutams, according to the sound created by drum and conch, sins will not hold in their grip eminent people who praise Nālūr Mayāṉam where annual festivals which are desired earnestly never cease;

Arunachala Siva.

Tiru Nalur Mayanam:

Verse  1:

பாலூரு மலைப்பாம்பும் பனிமதியு மத்தமும்
மேலூருஞ் செஞ்சடையான் வெண்ணூல்சேர் மார்பினான்
நாலூர் மயானத்து நம்பான்ற னடிநினைந்து
மாலூருஞ் சிந்தையர்பால் வந்தூரா மறுபிறப்பே.

Siva who has red matted locks, on which are spread a cobra as big as the mountain which crawls, on one side, cool crescent moon and Datura flowers, who wears on his chest a white sacred thread, rebirth will not come at close quarters with those in whose minds love is increasing, thinking of the feet of Siva who is in Nālūr Mayāṉam.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 32:

1. Ribhu: I shall reiterate upon the renunciation of the unreal and, indeed, certainty in Brahman too.  Just by hearing this, man becomes liberated at once.

2. The existence of thought force, the existence of mind, the existence of Brahman,
the existence of any different state -- are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this. I am only Brahman.  There is no uncertainty about this.

3. The existence of body, the existence of signs, the existence of thoughts, the existence of the undecaying state are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this.  I am only Brahman.  There is no doubt of this.

4.  The seen, the seeing, the seer, the doer, the inspirer of action, and the deed, -- are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this. I am only Brahman - There is no uncertainty about this.

5.  Oneness, double, separateness, concepts such as existence and non existence -- are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this, I am only Brahman.  There is no uncertainty about this.

6.  Variance in the texts, variance in the Vedas, the different concepts of liberation -are all illusory. There is no doubt of this.  I am only Brahman.  There is no uncertainty
about this.

7. The distinctions of species, the variance of caste, definitions of purity and impurity
-- are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this. I am only Brahman.  There is no uncertainty about this.

8. The mode of undivided form, the supreme and undivided essence, -- are all illusory.
There is no doubt of this.  I am only Brahman. There is no uncertainty about this.

9.  Contradictory thoughts of high and the low and opposing thoughts on virtue and sin -- are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this. I am only Brahman.  There is no uncertainty about this.

10.  The duality of the imaginary and the non imaginary, the concepts of mental imagery -- are all illusory.  There is no doubt of this. I am only Brahman. There is no uncertainty about this.

Every time I had a question in my mind as how to approach or deal with relating
Sri Ramana to Advaita philosophy, I would drive to the Asramam and, sit in Sri Ramana's shrine or on the slopes of Arunachala, and contemplate.  I was given nine months with which to complete the book and thus I was extremely focused during that time.

In the beginning I had the thought that Sri Ramana had called me to write the book. After it was completed, I understood that Sri Ramana did not need another book written about him and that it was really Arunachala that was calling for me, not my book.

Since 1973, my sister, Farion, had made numerous trips to Sathya Sai Baba.  She would fly into Bangalore, taxi to Puttaparthi and / or Whitefield and then fly out to Bangalore back to California.  This visit she asked me if I would take her to Tiruvannamalai.

After spending a few days in Puttaparthi, my sister and I drove together to Chennai.
Along the drive we had a rather deep discussion about the nature of Reality and whether Advaita presented an accurate description of It.  There are most definitely any number of philosophical theories.  All are true and all are false.  There are those who say, 'Take the one that most appeals to you.'

Arunachala Siva.

There is no Jnani, only Jnana.  There is only the Self, the Heart.  The One Pristine Self.
Be still.  Find out who you are.

                             - Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Shortly after having moved back to Chennai, I paid a visit to Prof. R. Balasubramanian, one of my Vedanta professors at the University of Madras.  He said, 'I can't seem to find someone write a volume on Sri Ramana Maharshi, for a series I am the General Editor of, The Builders of Indian Philosophy Series. Would you like to do it?  I would like the finished manuscript in nine months time.'

I immediately said yes.  Not only was I thinking about the love and respect for Sri Ramana Maharshi and His teachings but, I felt something special would happen in the writing.  To be presented with the opportunity to plunge deeply into Sri Ramana Maharshi's teachings was too good to pick up.

All the books in this Series have a philosophical format.  The first chapter is a short history of the philosopher's life.  The second chapter is an overview of what will follow. Then come chapters on epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, spiritual practices, Jivan Mukti and an evaluation vis a vis the philosopher being covered in the traditional sense of the word.

As Sri Ramana said, 'I was indeed fortunate that I never took to philosophy.  Had I taken to it, I would probably be nowhere, but my inherent tendencies led me directly to inquire, 'Who am I? How fortunate!'  What is astonishing is Sri Ramana's teachings emerged spontaneously as the fruit of His Great Awakening and only subsequently,
almost by accident, did He learn of the ancient Upanishadic and philosophical teachings.  Even more astounding is that His words, almost, word for word, identical with those found in the Scriptures.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


தண்வயல்சூழ் காழித் தமிழ்ஞான சம்பந்தன்
கண்ணுதலான் மேவியுறை கோயில் கைச்சினத்தைப்
பண்ணிசையா லேத்திப் பயின்ற விவைவல்லார்
விண்ணவரா யோங்கி வியனுலகம் ஆள்வாரே.


On Kaichiṉam where Siva, with a frontal eye dwells with desire. Those who are capable of reciting these verses which were practiced by praising with music having melody-types and composed by Jnana Sambandhan,  having scholarship in Tamizh who is a native of Sirkazhi,  surrounded by cool fields, will rule over the heaven being elevated as celestial beings.

Padigam on Tiruk Kaichinam completed.

Arunachala Siva.
