Verse 5:


கொங்கு லாமலர்ச் சோலை வண்டினங் கெண்டி மாமது வுண்டி சைசெயத்
தெங்கு பைங்கமுகம் புடைசூழ்ந்த திருக்களருள்
மங்கை தன்னொடுங் கூடிய மண வாள னேபிணை கொண்டொர் கைத்தலத்
தங்கை யிற்படையாய் அடைந்தார்க் கருளாயே.


The swarms of bees work into the flowers and drink abundant honey in the flower-gardens from which fragrance spreads, to hum like music. In Tiruk Kaḷar surrounded on all sides by coconut trees and green areca-palms, the bridegroom who is united with a lady is holding a deer in one hand. He has a battle-axe in the other beautiful hand! [see 1st verse].

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:

அம்பி னேர்தடங் கண்ணி னாருடன் ஆட வர்பயில் மாட மாளிகை
செம்பொ னார் பொழில் சூழ்ந்தழகாய திருக்களருள்
என்பு பூண்டதோர் மேனி யெம்மிறைவா விணையடி போற்றி நின்றவர்க்
கன்பு செய்தவனே அடைந்தார்க் கருளாயே.

In Tiruk Kaḷar where in the storeyed mansions males are crowded with ladies who have big and sharp eyes like the arrow, and which is surrounded by gardens which have flowers golden in color Lord who reciprocated the love to your devotees who praised your feet addressing you as our Lord who has a body adorned with bones!
[see 1st verse].

Verse  3:

பாட வல்லநன் மைந்த ரோடு பனிம லர்பல கொண்டு போற்றிசெய்
சேடர்வாழ் பொழில்சூழ் செழுமாடத் திருக்களருள்
நீட வல்ல நிமல னேயடி நிரைக ழல்சிலம் பார்க்க மாநடம்
ஆடவல் லவனே அடைந்தார்க் கருளாயே.


In Tiruk Kaḷar which has wealthy houses and is surrounded by gardens, where great people who praise Siva with many cool flowers joining with good-natured youths who are able to sing, live the immaculate Siva who has been there since time immemorial.

Verse  2:


தோளின் மேலொளி நீறு தாங்கிய தொண்டர் வந்தடி போற்ற மிண்டிய
தாளினார் வளருந் தவமல்கு திருக்களருள்
வேளி னேர்விச யற்க ருள்புரி வித்த காவிரும் பும்ம டியாரை
ஆளுகந் தவனே அடைந்தார்க் கருளாயே.


The devotees who smear on their shoulders bright sacred ash to come near you and praise your feet. In Tirukkaḷar where penance is increasing by many folds and where Siva whose feet are crowded by devotees, is flourishing. Able god who granted your grace to Vijayaṉ who can be compared to Murgaṉ, who desired to admit as your protege the devotees who love you ardently. [see 1st verse].

Arunachala Siva.

Tiruk Kalar:

Verse 1:


நீரு ளார்கயல் வாவி சூழ்பொழில் நீண்ட மாவய லீண்டு மாமதில்
தேரினார் மறுகில் விழாமல்கு திருக்களருள்
ஊரு ளாரிடு பிச்சை பேணும் ஒருவ னேயொளிர் செஞ்ச டைம்மதி
ஆரநின் றவனே அடைந்தார்க் கருளாயே.


In Tiruk Kaḷar, which has tanks having plenty of water with carp fish, surrounding gardens, long and big fields, great walls of fortification that are close together, increasing festival in the streets where temple cars are drawn, the unequaled Siva who obtains with desire the alms given by the residents of the village! Who stood, for the crescent moon to stay in the glittering red matted locks! Bestow your grace on devotees who approach you.

Arunachala Siva.

51.  The horrendous sin of millions of births is reduced to ashes. This is the truth. This is the truth. Again and again, this is the truth.  Everything shall perish. Liberation dawns immediately.  There is no doubt of this.  There is neither auspiciousness nor inauspiciousness.

52.  For the one who has realized the unifying wisdom of the crest of the Vedas, the Upanishads, where is the appearance of variance, and where sorrow and delusion in the heart?  Even as the world is an emanation from Him, that Mahesa alone is its Life. He alone is its Life.  He alone abides in it just as the cobweb in the spider.

Thus concludes chapter 32 entitled 'Topic of the determination of the illusory nature of all', in the sixth amsa called Sri Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

I began memorizing the verses even during my walk back home. When my father asked me what had happened I reported everything to him and then recited those verses from memory.  I could in this way learn a hundred verses by heart within a fortnight of attending 'class'. My father pointed out that memorizing the verses was not enough and advised me to learn their meaning too from my master.  Thus I learnt the entire text of Kaivalyam along with its meaning.     

A visitor came to see my Swami during the time.  He was Rangaswami Gounder, known as Samiar Gounder, from the village of Pudupalayam in the Pollachi Taluk (an administrative sub division of a district within a state).  Seeing me with my guru and coming to know from my father of my spiritual leanings, he took me, along with my guru to his home in Pudupalayam, where we remained for a period as his guests.  One day there, I asked my guru while he was alone, 'I am unable to experience yet the Samadhi state that is described in Yoga Vasishtam. Should I just go on with my reading of texts on Vedanta, or is there something more that I should do?'  The Swami replied that reading and understanding those texts was not enough, and that I would have to start practicing certain disciplinary mental exercises. He instructed me how to practice it those drills.  Accordingly, I started practice of meditation exercises, simultaneous with listening to Vedanta lessons.  Sometime went by in this manner but I could still not get any spiritual experience. Again, I asked the Swami what I had to do. He advised me to continue with more intensity and by maintaining silence of speech. He assured me that I would certainly be rewarded with exalted states.

Kaivalya Navaneetham:

Prologue:

2. I worship ever shining Pure Consciousness, which manifests as Brahma, Vishnu, or Mighty Shiva, according as He creates, preserves or withdraws (the universe), and also as the countless individual beings; yet It remains ever free and perfect,as the blazing sun over the ocean of Bliss. 

6. All the ancient sages drew from the boundless ocean of milk, namely Vedanta and filled their pitchers, their works. I boiled them all (on the fire of the Master's words),
and churned them (with the churn of inquiry into the Self) and I present this Cream of Emancipation to all.

The Exposition of the Truth:

8. The sages say that there are four prerequisites for realization of the Truth:

1. Viveka: discrimination between the temporary (therefore unreal phenomena) and the permanent (therefore the Reality), i.e. the noumenal);

2. Indifference to the enjoyment of pleasures here or hereafter;

3. The group of six qualities and

4. The longing for Liberation.

The six qualities are sama, dama, uparati, titiksha, samadhana and sraddha. Of these,
sama is control of mind; dama is control of the senses; uparati is cessation of activities (relating to caste, creed, family etc.,); titiksha is control of passions, and includes endurance; samadhana, according to the sages, the settling down of the mind
to reflect on the Truth, as revealed (by the scriptures and the sages); sraddha denotes faith in the Master and the scriptures. Such are the meanings of the six terms of this category.

11. No one can achieve anything in the world without being properly equipped for the task.  For the same reason, only those who are equipped with these four categories of prerequisites can gain illumination. A novice cannot get it so readily. If so gained, it follows that the person has been successively purified in countless incarnations in the past.

(Kaivalya Navaneetam: The Cream of Emancipation. An ancient Tamizh classic by Tandavaraya Swami. Tr. Swami Ramananda Saraswati).

Verse 11:


வாடல் வெண்டலை மாலை யார்த்தும யங்கி ருள்ளெரி யேந்தி மாநடம்
ஆடன் மேயதென்னென்று ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானைக்
கோட னாக மரும்பு பைம்பொழிற் கொச்சை யாரிறை ஞான சம்பந்தன்
பாடல் பத்தும்வல்லார் பரலோகஞ் சேர்வாரே.


Questioning the reason for performing the great dance holding the fire in the night of dense darkness, having tied a garland of dried white skulls, the father in Amāttūr,
those who are able to recite all the ten verses of Jnana Sambandhan, chief of the inhabitants of Kochai (Sirkazhi) which has fertile gardens in which the white glory Malabar lily puts foots bud like the hood of the cobra, will reach the superior Sivalokam.

Padigam on Tiru Amattur completed.

Verse 10:

புத்தர் புன்சம ணாதர் பொய்ம்மொழி நூல்பி டித்தலர் தூற்ற நின்னடி
பத்தர் பேணநின்ற பரமாய பான்மையதென்
முத்தை வென்ற முறுவ லாளுமை பங்க னென்றிமை யோர்ப ரவிடும்
அத்தனே யரியாய் ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானே.


The master whom the celestial beings who do not wink praise the Lord who has as a half Uma whose teeth are superior in beauty to pearls! Rare god! The father in Amāttūr, when the Buddhists and low Jains who are ignorant persons to slander being firm in their works which contain false words, what is the nature of being superior to superior things for the devotees to esteem your feet?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:


செய்ய தாமரை மேலி ருந்தவ னோடு மாலடி தேட நீண்முடி
வெய்ய வாரழலாய் நிமிர்கின்ற வெற்றிமையென்
தைய லாளொடு பிச்சைக் கிச்சை தயங்கு தோலரை யார்த்த வேடங்கொண்
டைய மேற்றுகந்தார் ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானே.

The father in Amāttūr!  You became great by receiving alms having a form in which you tied a shining skin in the waist, desiring begging alms with a young lady.
Brahman who was seated in a red lotus flower and Vishnu to go in search of your feet and tall head, what is the reason for your distinctive greatness in growing tall as a pillar of hot and unbearable fire?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:


நின்ற டர்த்திடு மைம்பு லன்னிலை யாத வண்ண நினைந்து ளத்திடை
வென்றடர்த் தொருபான் மடமாதை விரும்புதலென்
குன்றெ டுத்தநி சாச ரன்திரள் தோளி ருபது தானெ ரிதர
அன்றடர்த் துகந்தார் ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானே.


The father in Amāttūr who became great by pressing down long ago to crush all the twenty round shoulders of the demon, who moves at night and who lifted the mountain!  What is the idea for desiring a young lady on one half having pressed down subduing the five senses which persist in oppressing and which are unsteady in their nature?

மங்கை வாணுதன் மான்ம னத்திடை வாடி யூடம ணங்க மழ்சடைக்
கங்கையா ளிருந்த கருத்தாவ தென்னைகொலாம்
பங்க யமது வுண்டு வண்டிசை பாட மாமயி லாட விண்முழ
வங்கையா லதிர்க்கும் ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானே.


The father in Amāttūr where the bees having drunk the honey in the lotus hum like music and the great peacocks dance, the clouds make a sound like the Muzhavu, by their hands the lady who has a bright forehead and looks like the deer to be sulky grieving in her mind. What is idea of Ganga to stay in the fragrant matted locks.

Verse  6:


ஓதி யாரண மாயநுண் பொருள் அன்று நால்வர்முன் கேட்க நன்னெறி
நீதி யாலநீழல் உரைக்கின்ற நீர்மையதென்
சோதி யேசுட ரேசு ரும்பமர் கொன்றை யாய்திரு நின்றி யூருறை
ஆதியே யரனே ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானே.


The brilliant light, the sun, god who wears Koṉṟai on which there are bees!
The chief who dwells in Tiruṉṟiyūr, Haraṉ, and the father in Amāttūr! When the four sages asked you about the subtle ideals having learnt the Vēdas, in the distance past, in your presence, what is the affability for expounding the truth of good path sitting under the banyan tree, in the proper way?

அண்டவாணர் தொழும் ஆமாத்தூ ரம்மானே.

The father in Amāttūr where the celestial beings in heaven come and worship and where the blossomed lotus flowers growing close together in the fields where silt is deposited, resemble the bright faces of ladies!  What is the reason for your not taking pity on your devotees who come to you and bow down their heads before you and praise your feet scattering flowers on them, when they suffer from hunger?

Arunachala Siva.
