Verse  7:


நல்குரவு மின்பமும் நலங்களவை யாகி
வல்வினைகள் தீர்த்தருளு மைந்தனிட மென்பர்
பல்குமடி யார்கள்படி யாரவிசை பாடிச்
செல்வமறை யோருறை திருப்புகலி யாமே.


Tiruppukali where the Brahmins possessing the wealth of devotion sing music (in praise of the Lord) so that the ever-increasing devotees may enjoy sumptuously all happiness in this world. Having become poverty, objects of pleasure and welfare,
people say that it is the place of the valiant hero who completely removes the effects of irresistible sins.

Arunachala Siva.

Tirup Pukali:  (another name for Sirkazhi)

Verse  1:


முன்னிய கலைப்பொருளு மூவுலகில் வாழ்வும்
பன்னிய வொருத்தர்பழ வூர்வினவின் ஞாலந்
துன்னியிமை யோர்கள்துதி செய்துமுன் வணங்குஞ்
சென்னியர் விருப்புறு திருப்புகலி யாமே.

[Arts are traditionally said to be sixty-four in number;]

Today is Kari Nayanar Guru Puja. Kari Nayanar attained salvation at Siva's feet on this day.  Masi month, Purada Star day.

About Kari Nayanar, I have already written in the serial post on Siva's 63 Saints.
Members are requested to go through the same.

Arunachala Siva.

21. The sport of mental mode and even the intellect are non existent. I am without
the idea of the body, the intellectual resolve or imagination.

22. All are Brahman.  There is no doubt of this.  I am that Brahman. Of this there is no uncertainty. I am of the form of the certitude of intellect.  Oho, even this certainty goes.

23.  The diverse ways of egoism, the I am the body notion, all are Brahman.  There is no uncertainty of this.  I am that Brahman. There is no uncertainty of this.

24.  I am Brahman. Even at that, I am the blind. I am the deaf and I am the supreme.
All is Brahman.  There is no doubt of this. I am that Brahman.  There is no uncertainty
of this.

25.  The awareness 'I am the body' is the unification of the body and the supreme self. All is Brahman.  There is no doubt if this. I am that Brahman, there is no uncertainty of this.

26.  The awareness 'I am all', is the unification of all with the supreme self - achieve this disposition with endeavor, 'Brahman, indeed, am I - O Lord.'

27. Such is the firm certitude.  True. True. I am the supreme. That firm conviction results from the certitude on the Guru's utterances.

28.  Abide, ever established as the supreme in the sovereign state of strong conviction. I am indeed the supreme Brahman, the illuminator of the bliss of the self.

29, 30: Being Siva, where is worship of Siva for me?  Being Vishnu, where is the propitiation of Vishnu for me?  What little is comprehended, whatever certainty achieved anywhere;  'That indeed are thou'.  'Thou art indeed I' - nothing of this sort in the least.  This mind stuff and that which is seen - none of this exists indeed.

31.  Even if concepts of real and unreal should remain, distinctions such as 'this' and 'that' do not shine.  All of is not of any joyous nature.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Home:

We all are in exile. It is the condition of our lives.  We are all seeking or waiting for the time when somewhere, somehow we can discover and rest secure in our own home,
the place where we instinctively know we belong, whatever or wherever it may be.
Although we may be unsure of its shape, size and location, every single one of us
is aware at some deep atavistic level that home exists and we are searching for it.

Though we pretend we know what we want, it is rare that we do truly know.  We indulge in babbles; we read books and think we understand; we distract ourselves with day dreams and wishful thinking.  Our vision is clouded as we seek for what we think is home. We are full of concepts as we seek for what we think is home.  We are full of concepts about enlightenment, bliss, glory, power and knowledge as if we are conversant with the potency of these ideas. 

The trenchant observer Kabir sang:

If parroting the name of Rama brought salvation,
Then saying Sugarcane should sweeten the mouth,
Saying Fire burns the feet,
Saying Water slake the thirst,
And saying Food would be good as a bletch.
If saying Money made everyone rich,
There would be no beggars on the street.

(Eating God, A Book of Bhakti Poetry, Penguin, 2014.)

Participation:

The question is often asked by the newcomers to the Asramam: when is the teacher they can turn to now that Ramana Maharshi left this world in 1950? The normal response is what need to look elsewhere when Bhagavan is still there? It is all very
well for those who are convinced  because of their own intimate experience of Bhagavan's Grace but for the sceptics, more experience who are in desperate need for guidance, this is an unsatisfactory answer.

All of us who are devotees of Bhagavan know there is a subtle radiance ever available
if one but remains still and listen quietly with an open heart and mind.  The fact that people come again and again is a ample proof that they do 'get' something so fulfilling
that they eagerly want to return.  What is the grace that satisfies the heart and quietens the mind?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


கந்த மார்பொழிற் காழி ஞானசம்
பந்தன் சேர்கரு வூரு ளானிலை
எந்தை யைச்சொன்ன பத்தும் வல்லவர்
சிந்தை யிற்றுய ராய தீர்வரே.


மணம் பொருந்திய பொழில்கள் சூழ்ந்த சீகாழிப் பதியில் தோன்றிய ஞானசம்பந்தன் கருவூர் ஆனிலையை அடைந்து எம் தந்தையாகிய இறைவன் மேல் பாடிய இப்பதிகப்பாடல் பத்தையும் ஓத வல்லவர் மனத்துயர் தீர்வர்.

Verse  10:

புத்தர் புன்சம ணாதர் பொய்யுரைப்
பித்தர் பேசிய பேச்சை விட்டுமெய்ப்
பத்தர் சேர்கரு வூரு ளானிலை
அத்தர் பாத மடைந்து வாழ்மினே.


புத்தர்களும் புன்மையான அறிவற்ற பொய்யுரைகளைக் கூறும் பித்தர்களாகிய சமணர்களும் பேசும் பேச்சுக்களை விட்டு உண்மையான பக்தர்கள் சேரும் கருவூர் ஆனிலையில் விளங்கும் மேலான இறைவனின் திருவடிகளை அடைந்து வாழுங்கள்.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:


உழுது மாநிலத் தேன மாகிமால்
தொழுது மாமல ரோனுங் காண்கிலார்
கழுதி னான்கரு வூரு ளானிலை
முழுது மாகிய மூர்த்தி பாதமே.


Vishnu transforming himself into a pig and digging the big earth and Brahma who is in a big flower, had not the ability to see Siva, and they worshipped him with joined hands. He has ghosts as his army. The feet of the god who has a visible form and who is all things and who is at Aṉilai in Karuvūr.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 8:

கடுத்த வாளரக் கன்க யிலையை
எடுத்த வன்றலை தோளுந் தாளினால்
அடர்த்த வன்கரு வூரு ளானிலை
கொடுத்த வன்னருள் கூத்த னல்லனே.

Siva pressed down firmly with his leg, the heads and shoulders of the angry and cruel demon who lifted the mountain, Kailash. He who is at Aṉilai in Karuvūr granted his grace later; Is he not a dancer?

Arunachala Siva.
