Verse  8:

நட்டத்தோடு நரியாடு கானத்தெரி யாடுவான்
அட்டமூர்த்தி யழல்போ லுருவன் அழகாகவே
இட்டமாக இருக்கும் இடம்போல் இரும்பைதனுள்
வட்டஞ்சூழ்ந்து பணிவார் பிணிதீர்க்கும் மாகாளமே.


Siva dances in fire in the cremation-ground where jackals dance with. He has eight forms. He has the color like the fire.  The place where he stays beautifully, desiring it.
is Mākāḷam in Irumpai which removes the diseases of those who pay homage by going from left to right.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:

பொங்குசெங்கண் அரவும் மதியும் புரிபுன்சடைத்
தங்கவைத்த பெருமானென நின்றவர் தாழ்விடம்

மங்குல்தோயும் பொழில்சூழ்ந் தழகாய மாகாளமே.

குறைவதாய குளிர்திங்கள் சூடிக் குனித்தான்வினை
பறைவதாக்கும் பரமன் பகவன் பரந்தசடை

Verse  4:

நஞ்சுகண்டத் தடக்கி நடுங்கும் மலையான்மகள்
அஞ்சவேழம் உரித்த பெருமான் அமரும்மிடம்

Verse  2:

வேதவித்தாய் வெள்ளைநீறு பூசி வினையாயின
கோதுவித்தாய் நீறெழக் கொடிமா மதிலாயின

Tiru Irumpai Makalam:

Verse 1:

மண்டுகங்கை சடையிற் கரந்தும் மதிசூடிமான்
கொண்டகையாற் புரமூன் றெரித்த குழகன்னிடம்
எண்டிசையும் புகழ்போய் விளங்கும் இரும்பைதனுள்
வண்டுகீதம் முரல்பொழில் சுலாய்நின்ற மாகாளமே.


Concealing the river Ganga which flows swiftly in the matted locks, wearing a crescent moon, the place of the youth who holds a deer in his hand and burnt the three cities,
in Irumpai whose fame has spread in all the eight directions and is eminent. It is the temple, Mākāḷam surrounded by gardens where bees hum like music.

Arunachala Siva.

22.  The world -- an iota of it or even an infinitesimal part, do not exist.  The word 'world' or its remembrance
does not exist.

23.  There is nowhere an internal world nor an external world; (nor is there) any thing quiescent, whatever
little there be, ever, wherever!

24.  'By that', 'by whom', 'whenever', 'whatever little', 'of this', or 'whose' - these statements are not in the least.
Nor is there pure or impure form. The statements about Brahman are not difficult to comprehend.

25.  Nothing in  the least is worth saying as this or that.  Brahman alone is all, always. Brahman alone is all mind.

26. Bliss, supreme bliss , eternal bliss, ever the non dual, Consciousness alone is ever.  I am not another,
not at all.

27. The world is always naught.  The world is a picture.  Thought alone is the recurring world.  Nothing else is the recurring world.

28.  Mind alone is the repetitive world, of the form of 'I am tbe body'.  Thought alone is the recurrent world.
Upon the destruction of that this is also destroyed.

29.  Thought alone constitutes birth. When it is destroyed, this is also destroyed.  Thought alone is poverty.
When it is destroyed, this is also destroyed.

30.  Thought alone is reflection, when it is destroyed, this is also destroyed.  This is the Self alone, nothing else.  I am the supreme Self, whole.

The four points can be thought of as the Mystic Way, to be followed by all who seek the unitive experience.
There are stages of the Way; in this study a threshold division, which applies to the religious systems of both East and Wast, will be examined, particularly in the liver of Rabi'a and Teresa.  The three stages are the Purgative
life, the Illuminative life and the Unitive life. Though looking at these two mystics in a similar way and the Unitive life.  Through looking at these two mystics in a similar way we may derive a sense of Realty.

We are fortunate in having a well documented life of Teresa who was born of an aristocratic family of Avila, in
1515. In her thirteenth year she lost her mother, an experience that caused her to draw closer to the mother of Christ. She has recorded this incident in her Life:

'When I began to realize what I had lost, I went in my distress to an image of Our Lady and with many tears besought her to be a mother to me.  Though I did this in my simplicity, I believe it was of some avail to me.
For whenever I have commended myself to this Sovereign Virgin I have been conscious of her aid; and eventually she has brought me back to herself. (The Life of Teresa of Jesus, St. Teresa of Avila. Tr. E.  Alison Peers, Garden City: Image Books, 1960)/

Without reservation Uncle Noah, the bard Magrupi and various other mentors proclaimed it 'the destiny of the Gypsies' to journey to the ends of the earth, 'tasting the sweetness and sorrow of the nations', possessed of an
insatiable, all consuming thirst for freedom and open space, prefiguring the universal human quest for the infinite, host nations, the kapire or non Gypsies. Nurain, known as 'the master of bards', said that Gypsies were meant to enrich and embellish their own culture by becoming exposed to the art, life, music, history and poetry of the whole world.  That every corner of the earth can replenish the Juki.  That there is no shortage of art, or life, with lessons to give.

'Tradition' is not dogmatic authority; it is the creative, ever fecundating life of the spirit.
'Authority' belongs to a different domain, a social, external reality.  In a living, vital tradition, Truth is not a 'proven' by theological arguments; it is seen in the light that pours out of it.  And so it is with irresistible poetry, the themes of all great philosophy and the beauty of trees, stars, river oaks and rose gardens.

Man is inundated in impression from a thousand sources of revelation:  but he is easily
distracted, even by very petty concerns.  And so it often happens that he is no longer open to the miraculous, the incomparable gift of life itself, or to the enchantment and wonder endlessly poured over the world, 'since the beginning of time'.  And man was meant to traverse the entire earth, drinking water of knowledge from all its wells, wounded, stirred and enriched by its vastness and variegation and the unique destiny of every people and every culture.  (Every nasiya, nation or tribe, having its own destiny, its own mission in life.  And there are no tribes, no religions, whose destiny lies in 'devouring the rest of the mankind'.  The calling of every people is latent in its very life, like butter in milk. And it is not 'petrified dogma' that reveals such a destiny to a given nasiya, so much as it is self discovery, and discovery of the Other, in the course of living a life.

When Buddha attained Enlightenment under the Bodhi tree in Bodhgaya and then proceeded to Saranath for delivering his first sermon that commenced his life long spiritual ministry, people were awe struck by his unearthly effulgence.  Wondering whether he was a divinity descended on earth, they queried him as to who he was, for
he seemed far too godly to be one among them.

The Buddha answered with a prescience and simplicity that he was neither a Deva,
nor a visitation or apparition from any other celestial domain and was much a normal human being as they were but the perceived difference lay in his awakened to the Reality of his true nature.  Thus he came to be called the Buddha, meaning 'the Awakened One'. Such was the spell he cast that multitudes of seekers and animals too stood transfixed in his powerful presence of Self absorption.  Even the elements of nature like plants and trees reportedly became still in his vicinity.

மல்குதண்பூம் புனல்வாய்ந் தொழுகும்வயற் காழியான்

Verse  10:


உயர்ந்தபோதின் னுருவத் துடைவிட் டுழல்வார்களும்
பெயர்ந்தமண்டை யிடுபிண்ட மாவுண் டுழல்வார்களும்
நயந்துகாணா வகைநின்ற நாதர்க் கிடமாவது
கயங்கொளோதங் கழிசூழ் கடல்நாகைக் காரோணமே.


The Jains who roam about discarding the dress from their bodies at noon, and the Buddhists who eat the balls of cooked rice poured into begging bowls from which all unwanted things have been removed. The place of the master who stood as not to be seen even though they desired it. is Nākaik Kārōṇam on the shore of the sea, surrounded by backwater flooded by the deep water tank nearby.
