Verse  6:

வெண்ணி லாமதி சூடும் வேணியன்
எண்ணி லார்மதி லெய்த வில்லினன்
அண்ண லிந்திர நீலப் பர்ப்பதத்
துண்ணி லாவுறு மொருவ னல்லனே.


Siva wears on his matted locks a white crescent moon that gives light.
He discharged an arrow from the bow on the forts of the enemies.
Is he not the god who has no equal and who remain permanently in the eminent Indra Neela Paruapadam?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:


மருவு மான்மட மாதொர் பாகமாய்ப்
பரவு வார்வினை தீர்த்த பண்பினான்
இரவ னிந்திர நீலப் பர்ப்பதத்
தருவி சூடிடு மடிகள் வண்ணமே.

Siva who has the nature of removing the acts of those who praise him, having as one half a young lady who is united with him, one who begs alms.
That is the nature of the god who wears the mountain streams in Indra Neela Parupptam.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 4:


நாச மாம்வினை நன்மை தான்வரும்
தேச மார்புக ழாய செம்மையெம்
ஈச னிந்திர நீலப் பர்ப்பதம்
கூசி வாழ்த்துதுங் குணம தாகவே.

We shall praise Indira Neela Paruppatam of our Siva who is impartial and whose fame has filled the country with shyness to be of good character. Our acts will perish, good things will come to us of their accord.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:

என்பொ னென்மணி யென்ன வேத்துவார்
நம்ப னான்மறை பாடு நாவினான்
இன்ப னிந்திர நீலப் பர்ப்பதத்
தன்பன் பாதமே யடைந்து வாழ்மினே.


Siva is the object of desire for those who praise him, My Gold! My Gem.
He sings the four Vedas with his tongue. (People of this world!)
Live happily approaching the feet themselves of the friend in Indra Neelap Paruppatam, who is the cause of all happiness.

Arunachala Siva.

Restraint is a powerful tool that helps us see clearly. Self control is not a punishment
nor a killjoy attitude that dislikes anything pleasurable on principle on principle.  It is not avoidance; it is a clear perception of the consequences of what we may be able to do.
When we are in doubt we exercise restraint, but this does not mean we remain dense,
unfeeling and lifeless. Self restraint does not mean we shut our eyes, block our ears, cease talking and stop eating. Quite contrary, we become more sensitive and do what is appropriate.

Anyone who has driven a car can remember getting behind  the wheel for the first time and thinking that the car is driving them!  We tend to panic and apply the brakes with abrupt force.  With practice we learn to control and restraint until we are charge, and then become the one who drives, rather than a helpless passenger. We apply the brake smoothly so that the car slows down in a continuous flow.

Have you ever noticed that Bhagavan slowly applies the necessary medicine to us so much that we rarely notice it until afterwards when the 'treatment' is successful and we look back and see how much we have changed for the good and are no longer in the grip or compulsive desire or the victim of an irrational, obsessive fear?

The Buddha compared meditation to the tuning of a musical instrument. When we play it or when we exercise our mind, should we rigidly control our technique or should we indulge and let go?  The answer is neither. When we tune a stringed instrument, we neither bind the strings too tightly nor do we allow them to be too loose. It is by precise restraint that we learn to develop our awareness of the consequences.

Arunachala Siva.

One should never lose the commitment to continue on the path, even if a traumatic incident occurs, nor should one be too jubilant or indulge in smug self satisfaction
because of a fortuitous event, or because something long desired suddenly, smoothly
and effortlessly turns out right.  We will inevitably experience joys and effortlessly turns out right. We will inevitably experience joys and defeats.  In a sense, our bitter setbacks are our best teachers for through them we have no choice but to mature and grow stronger in our inner awareness of what is right and wrong.

How grateful we should be to given this awareness.  This may be the first step towards detachment.  For it will save us a great deal of unnecessary suffering and despair.

It is important to remember that once we are on this path guided by Bhagavan the rules and priorities change. Instead of acquisition, we learn to let go; instead of trying
to control, we learn to accept and flow with circumstances; instead of complaining
if misfortune hits us, we see that it is an opportunity to see our ignorance and learn
discrimination and detachment.

When we look back on our lives there are moments when what at that time appeared to be a disaster, with hindsight , we see was the best thing that could have happened to us, however shocking it may have been. There is a Jewish saying, 'And that is also
for good'. (Moris Alan, Everyday Holiness, The Jewish Spiritual Path of Mussar,
Trumpter, Boston, 2008).

Chapter 30:

1. Ribhu: I shall speak about the supreme that is Brahman, along with the renunciation
of the world. By one who hears it even once the supreme Brahman is attained.

2. Brahman is supported by Brahman alone, attributeless, ever blemishless, permanent,
poised and absolute.  There is nothing apart from Brahman.

3. I am truth - the joy of beyond, pure, eternal, and taintless.  All is, indeed, only Brahman. That Brahman am I. There is no doubt of this.

4. I am the singular undivided essence, ever perfect in every way.  Brahman is everything, nothing else is. All is Brahman.  There is no doubt of this.

5. I am the unitary self always.  All is eternally Brahman.  I am of the form of bliss alone.  Nothing else is permanent. 

6. I am of the nature of pure bliss.  I am the pure wisdom of the self.  I am of a uniform nature.  I am not bereft of the unitary existence.

7. I am of the pure internal knowledge. I alone am the refuge. All is indeed only Brahman.  There is no doubt of this.  I am that Brahman. Of this there can be no doubt.

8.I am devoid of multiple themes. Oneness too does not exist. All is indeed, Brahman.
There is no doubt of this.  I am that Brahman.  Of this there can be no question.

9. I am of all possible forms, devoid of even the term 'all'.  All is indeed, Brahman.
There is no doubt of this.  I am that Brahman. Of this there can be no question.

10.  I am of the form of blemishless knowledge. Even 'I' does not exist. I am of the nature of the pure Brahman, bereft of the word 'pure'.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


நெண்ப யங்குநெல் வாயில் ஈசனைச்
சண்பை ஞானசம் பந்தன்சொல் லிவை
பண்ப யன்கொளப் பாட வல்லவர்
விண்ப யன்கொளும் வேட்கை யாளரே.

These verses which are in praise of the Lord in Nelvāyil where friendship is very abundant (among devotees), by Jnana Sambandhan, born in Sanbai, those who are capable of singing them melodiously to obtain benefit, are those who are desirous of getting the benefit of eternal bliss.
[Nelvāyil is now known as Sivapuri.]
