Tiru Nallur:

Verse 1:


பெண்ணமருந் திருமேனி யுடையீர் பிறங்குசடைதாழப்
பண்ணமரும் நான்மறையே பாடியாடல் பயில்கின்றீர்
திண்ணமரும் பைம்பொழிலும் வயலுஞ்சூழ்ந்த திருநல்லூர்
மண்ணமருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

You have a holy body in which a lady stays.  When the glittering mated locks,  are hanging low, you are practicing dance singing the four Vēdas, in which there are melody-types. In Tiru Nallūr which is surrounded by fields and verdant gardens of great strength, you are rejoicing in dwelling in the temple which is desired by the people of this world.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 34:

1. Ribhu: Listen to the knowledge of Brahman, the wondrous, the most hard to attain, a single hearing of which is enough to bestow the supreme liberation.

2. Truly, truly, the world does not exist and so not do thought, understanding and the like.  The knowledge of Brahman alone is by itself, ever, eternally brimming with bliss;

3. blissful, inexhaustible, peaceful, uniform and painless. The world of mind does not exist. Neither is there activity in reality.

4.  The concept of the world is non existent, nor is there any form in the least to be seen.  Thought and its activity are of the form of unreality.  The world is verily naught.

5. All is thus indeed unreal. Unreal also are the time and Isvara.  The world is a concept, likened to the fear of a son of a barren woman.

6.  The world appears in front of me like the peak of a castle built in air. The world would exist if one could quench one's thirst from a mirage.

7. This world is like the instance in which a man is killed by the peak of a hill and not an arrow.  If the imaginary castle is true, so would be the world always true.

8.  Like the blue color of the sky reflecting in the ocean the world seems to become real. The world is indeed true, if the silver in the pearl oyster could become a real ornament.

9. The recurrent world becomes evident just like the man dying from fear of a rope,
mistaking it to be a serpent, or even as an arrow of flowers quench a raging fire.

10.  The world exists if cooking were possible using the green trunk of banana plant as fuel.  The eternally blissful Brahman is ever by itself alone.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

My Guru:

10. I remained befuddled, imagining I had compulsory duties to perform. My Guru then freed me completely from this sense of obligation through the experience of firm Jnana,
the state of oneness that is free from the bewilderment of the ego which brings into being the idea of mandatory duties. He transformed me into the supreme which, by its very nature, soars as the empyrean of grace.

11. My Guru who lives for ever, abiding gloriously in the heart as consciousness, devoid of overpowering sleep, gently smiled within Himself, thinking of my foolish ignorance that makes me sing the waking up song for Him.  (Refer to the Tiruvachakam song of Tirup Palli Ezhucchi.)

12.  My Guru shines as the embodiment of Mauna, the infinite expanse of grace.  To make me see myself as Himself in the time it takes to blink an eye, He demonstrated clearly in my heart, in the form of the pure expanse, the Jnana Swarupa that exists as the treasure trove of Grace.

13. My Guru who possesses the virtue of generosity effectively exercised His dominion
over me by bestowing on me the blessed state of living in perpetual bliss.  I now live as an inebriated, lazy man, my mind swelling with bliss, just like a bee that has drunk the honey of grace at His feet, I merely eat and play, with absolutely no anxieties in my heart.

14. How wonderful it is that the very mind which was accustomed to moving in the way of bondage has now been made to shine with liberation as its own nature. What
other evidence is needed that Ramana, the king of Gurus, is a magician?

15. Guru Ramana, the Lord, wells up and surges as the rapturous supreme bliss in the hearts of those true devotees in whom love abounds.  He, the supreme reality who sustains this world, remaining as its unmoving prop, will not allow those who have placed their trust in Him, to suffer and wither away.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

The Guru:

1.  Only the Self, the real Lord who exists and shines in the heart as 'I,I', is the Guru.

2.  The appropriate Guru for you is the one whom you feel your mind has been effortlessly and totally captivated by.  He is indeed the Jnana Guru who bestows being
consciousness and who shines as the form of God himself in this world.

3.  Only when the devotee is fully mature does the Lord Parameswara, through his grace, bestow true Jnana in abundance. The Guru, on the other hand, brings the devotee's mind to complete maturity through his power, and then bestows true Jnana
by charging it with Sakti Pada. (Sakti Pada is both the power and process by which the Guru liberates the devotee.). 

4.  Only those Gurus who, like the sun, radiate penetrating rays of grace are Jnana Gurus. Lord Siva manifested as Guru Ramana. He is consciousness the supreme, who with His glance puts an end to the delusion of fear inducing concepts.

5. Lord Arunachaleswara, who stands as the grace bestowing supreme, assumed the form of the Brahman knowing Guru.  His only wish is to transform the life of devotees
into a life of nothing but bliss that possesses the surging light of Jnana devoid of ignorance.

6. The Jiva has taken on the form of the body, forgetting its real nature,  the Self, which is the light of consciousness, the limitless sky-like expanse. The preeminent
function of the Sad Guru who is the Self. one's true nature, is to clearly convince the Jiva of its real nature by dispelling the delusion of 'I' and 'mine' in the body, the possessions, and so on.

7.  The peerless light of true Jnana will well up and surge forth in a heart that has taken as its exclusive target the grace of the Guru. In the Self experience in which nothing but consciousness exists, the fear inducing mental anxieties that cause distress will leave for good, and the bliss associated with an intense serenity of mind will arise, filling up the heart.

8. The trustworthy Guru Ramana, the fire of Jnana, possesses a perfect and ripe wisdom that is full of light of Mauna. He steals as His tribute only the ego mind, the delusion, which is the 'I am this body of flesh' stain.

9.  Other than the grace bestowing Guru, who is both father and mother, who else on this earth exists as the close and permanent relative who is capable of bestowing the eminent being consciousness that confers true benefit on the Jiva, not only in this birth, but in all births? 

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


கல்லின் மணிமாடக் கழுமலத்தார் காவலவன்
நல்ல அருமறையான் நற்றமிழ் ஞானசம்பந்தன்
எல்லி யிடைமருதில் ஏத்துபாட லிவைபத்தும்
சொல்லு வார்க்குங் கேட்பார்க்குந் துயரம்இல்லையே.


The master of the inhabitants of Kazhumalan which has beautiful storeys built of granite, and Jnana Sambandhan who is an expert in good Tamizh and has learnt the good and abstruse Vedas, there will be no sufferings to those who recite these ten songs which were composed in praise of Iṭai Marutu at night and to those who hear them.

Verse  10:


சின்போர்வைச் சாக்கியரும் மாசுசேருஞ் சமணரும்
துன்பாய கட்டுரைகள் சொல்லி யல்லல்தூற்றவே
இன்பாய வந்தணர்க ளேத்துமேர்கொ ளிடைமருதில்
அன்பாய கோயிலே கோயிலாக வமர்ந்தீரே.

Verse  9:


மறைமல்கு நான்முகனு மாலுமறியா வண்ணத்தீர்
கறைமல்கு கண்டத்தீர் கபாலமேந்து கையினீர்
அறைமல்கு வண்டினங்க ளாலுஞ்சோலை யிடைமருதில்
நிறைமல்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாக நிகழ்ந்தீரே.

தலைபத்துந் திண்டோளு நெரித்தீர் தையல்பாகத்தீர்
இலைமொய்த்த தண்பொழிலும் வயலுஞ்சூழ்ந்த விடைமருதில்
