Aruangiri Andati:  continues.....

1. O Arunachala! For the sake of devas, you took poison with relish,
burnt the Tripura with a smile.  But how come, when the pig
was searching for your lotus feet, you were not consenting and
were standing a column of light?

2. O Arunachala!  The consumer of poison from the milky ocean,
the nectar of the devas, the ruler-father of the world, who is
there for me, even though I do not perform poojas and dharmas
and am wasting my life with useless deeds.

3. O Arunachala!  There is no else for me excepting you.  You
are the refuge, the giver of food, who creates me, protects me
and vanquishes my illness of this birth.

4. O Arunachala!  the temple of grace!  the wearer of Ganga!
Who can annihilate my death-birth cycle excepting you.  O
Siva, who gives unfailing gifts in this world, the king of Annamalai.

5.  O Arunachala!  temple of grace!  I do not fall at your feet.
Nor do I say:  Arunachala!  At the time of death, when I may
not knowing anything, I may not even think of your form.
Please save.

1. O Arunachala! Those who devotees, who always melt with
love for you and always remember you, only can see your
dance in this life.  It is not easy for others.

2. O king of Annamalai! the God who destroys the bodies of
gods!  Unless one loves you, what is the use of one punishing
his body with fast etc., What is merely the use of reading scriptures,
it will not remove the karmas and 'malams'.  You cannot kill a
snake, by merely beating the ground near its snake hill.*

(*This is a dig at yoga sastra.  Kundalini is a snake.  Trying to
raise the snake from mooladhara, without love and devotion
for Siva, will not yield any yogic result.)

3.  O Arunachala!  I have not yet overcome the love for this body.
I have not overcome my desire for ego, karma and maya.  I do
not your greatness.  While the crows and dogs will come to my
body, (afer death) saying: "it is ours!", the fox will pick the
body as its food.

4. O Aruanchala!  Not found out yet by Vedas.  Beyond the reach
of Hari, the three eyed god!   Without contemplating on your
Form, this lowly dog, is caring for this body, without understanding
that it is ready food for the foxes after death.

5. O Arunachala, the god of Annamalai, where all dharmas flourish,
without praising you, to overcome death and birth, I am praying
to the other gods, which are corpses, dying and taking birth. I am
not even praising your devotees, in the least.

1. O Arunachala! Sankara! Gangadhara!  When there are golden
ornaments studded with pearls and rubies, when you have got
adequate stock of gold with Kubera, why do you choose to wear,
angry serpents, skin of the tiger and the elephant and garland
of skulls of Brahma?

2. O Arunachala!  Gangadhara!  When this day that you shall
call me, look at me with love and grace and merge me in
liberation, please tell.

3. O Arunachala!  I got you, the Formless One, as my Guru and
kept you in my heart.  I have driven away my ego, three 'malam's
and the sanchita karma.

4. O Arunachala! the god of devas.  King of Annamalai.  For
your devotees, who have taken the way that you have indicated,
and who have developed a never oscillating mind, there are no
twofold karmas and the evil seven births.

5. O Arunachala!  After knowing you and your consort Unnamulai,
the divine couple of Annamalai, I do not know any other god.
Even if I know, I do not go behind it thinking it is good.

1. O Arunachala!  If I contemplate on your thousand names,
the nectar of Sonagiri. no bad things will come and all good
things will come.  You know what is to be done and I shall
keep quiet.

2. O Arunachala!  Sthanu! the master of every life.  Your
Panchakshara, Namasivaya, is the medicine for all cures.
Those who chant that shall overcome the two karmas,
shall not have debts and miseries in this life and attain

3. O Arunachala!  If one remembers Panchakshara, Brahma
will be afraid of him, and cancel the 'fate' on his forehead.
Brahma will think: "If I do not do this, Siva who has already
knocked off one of my heads, will knock of one more, let me
be beware."

4. O Arunachala!  For the sake of devotees, who chant
Panchakshara and meditate upon you, you shall warn god
of death:  "Look, they are mine.  Please prostrate before
them and vacate your place immediately."

5. O Arunachala!  To those who chant Panchakshara, your
golden feet, will give sharp intellect, remove all the karmas,
confer atma jnana and liberation in afterlife.

will remove all the karmas

Arunagiri Andati: continues......

1. O king of Annamalai, after you have said, 'Fear not', why
should we be afraid of god of death.  Since I am convinced
that you are the Guru and God who rules me, there is no
fear.  Only those who do not know this, will become dead trees,
covered by the earth.

2. O Arunachala!  How great is your grace.  You have taken me
also as a fit devotee, and conferred me the liberation, through
your lotus feet.  O Siva, the destroyer of the Tripura, you have
cancelled my two karmas and made me fit for liberation.

3. O Arunachala! the consumer of poison, you only know,
who is thieving others' property, who is protecting others'
property, who is taking alms, who is giving alms and all the
calcualations for reckoning.

4. O Arunachala!  After giving alms to those who beg saying,
'Only for now, not for tomorrow' and after praying to you,
in all the three times of the day and ever contemplating on
you, I shall attain liberation.

5. O Arunachala!  Who else is there to protect me in my afterlife?
If I do not think of your beautiful form, if I do not drown myself
in my tears for you, if I do not place flowers on your golden feet,
if I do not sing songs telling your glory, who else is there to
protect me in my afterlife?

Arunagiri Andati: continues....

1. The worries and diseases are crushing me and take my life
everyday.  I have found a way to melt down these worries,
O king of Annamalai, I have to contemplate your golden feet
for ever.  There is no more inadequacy in me.

2. O Arunachala, the king of Annamalai, we have become
your devotees.  There are no wants for us.  O god of devas,
even if god of death appraoches, we shall pluck the trident
from his hand and make him run away.

3. O Arunachala, king of gods, who consumed the poison and
who is wearing 'konrai' flowers, if we keep your lotus feet
in our heart, we shall get the deathless liberation, which even
the devas have to attain with a lot of poojas for you.

4. O Arunachala!  We have heard of enough of stories about
birth, life and death, from the poets.  We shall not hear them
anymore and contemplate only on your golden feet and get

5. O Arunachala!  Unless we pray to you, the guileless god
and also to your devotees, with fresh flowers, how can we
get liberation.  The evil minded people, who are like hunters,
will only be hunted by god of death and not we, who are
not afraid of god of death.

Arunagiri Andati: continues....

1.  O King of Sonagiri!  What is the use of going to a thousand
rivers and bathing?  What is the use of doing sixteen dharmas?
Unless you have in your heart Annamalai, Siva with five faces,
and be with his great devotees?

2. O Arunachala!  How can one get your lotus feet, the god
with deer in hand, unless one does tapas, one goes everyday
to his Temple in Annmalai, does dharmas?  One cannot get them free.

3. O Arunachala! How can one get your lotus feet, which was
not seen by Brahma and Vishnu.  What is the use of simply telling
their stories?  Unless, you keep his feet in your mind, one cannot
get them free.

4. O Arunachala!  Unless one is in full devotion to you, and keep
you in one's heart, you will not be with us.  O Father, who has
knocked down the teeth of sun, cut the nose of Brahma's wife,
Sarasvati, who has wilfully worn the crescent moon and Brahma's
skulls, you will be ever with us, if we are devoted to you.

5. O Arunachala!  How can we overcome the worries like,
'What is there to eat today?  What is there for night?  What
is there for tomorrow?'   Please grace us, O the god, who wears
"konrai", the crescent moon, "surabunnai", cactus in his
matted locks.

1. O Arunachala!  I do not apply holy ash regularly.  I do not
chant Panchakshara regularly.  Even then, it is for you to liberate
me, the god who wears Ganga and hold the fire on his hand.

2. O Arunachala!  You are the seed for liberation.  Without
chanting Panchakshara, how can I overcome the death and
hell and further birth, O Saviour, king of Annamalai, please save me.

3.  O Arunachala, let my mind be controlled.  Let my body be
punished by fasting.  O Siva of Sonagiri, the holder of deer,
my Father, what is the use of mind?  What is the use of thinking
about my twofold karmas?

4. O Arunachala!  What is the use of greed for worldly desires?
I shall abide by what Siva says to me.  Let me think my mind
as a wound. Let me think of the great after life that you are giving.

5. O Arunachala!  You are my tapas.  You are the fruit of my tapas.
You are my mother and father.  Your bull is the vehicle that shall
take me to your indescribable feet, O faher of Sonagiri!

Arunagiri Andati: continues....

1. O Arunachala!  Unless I contemplate on your lotus feet, what
avail is of all the knowledge, will it remove the bondage of karmas?
If one is having good birth, will it remove the disease of birth and
death?  O the merciful god, the eater of poison from the milky ocean?

2. O Arunachala!  King of Annamalai, if I chant Panchakshara,
that will show the way, that will take me to the goal, that will
confer me self knowledge, that will fulfil my life's ambition.

3. O Arunachala, if I contemplate your form, if I use my tongue
to chant your names, if I read the Siva scriputres,  these shall
take me to your golden feet, and the sins will not touch me.

4.  O Arunachala!  You are greater than the greatest gods.  O
king of Sonagiri, the devas could not conquer death, by running
away from the poison, you are deathless even after consuming the
poison, your devotees will also be deathless and live for ever.

5. O Arunachala!  What is the use of lives of those wastrels.
They do give alms to devotees.  They do not speak kind words.
They do not apply holy ash on their foreheads, thinking of the
consort of Unnamulai, who burnt the Tripura.

Arunagiri Andati: continues......

1. O Arunachala!  I shall do the poojas, as per the directions of
four Vedas, and ever contemplate on you.  I shall never forget
the louts feet of invincible Annamalai, who has got poison in his throat.

2. O Arunachala!  I shall only wait for your arrival.  Who else is
there for this lowly dog?  Annamalai is my mother's lap, O Father,
the only cure for the wounds of my life.

3. O Arunachala!  I shall ever seek your feet, the wearer of
'konrai', and crescent moon and the concorporate of Uma,
the Mother.  Then, even god of death will be afraid to come near me.

4. O Arunachala!  What can be compared to your lotus feet?
The god of death is on one foot, the eye of Vishnu on the other,
and if I look up,  the garland of Brahmas' skulls on your shoulder.

5.  O Arunachala, the Primal Guru, the effulgence of knowledge,
king of Sonagiri, even if one knows all the scriptures, if he does
not keep the Guru in his mind, there is no use and all their efforts
are a waste.

1. O Arunachala!  If I stay alone, take up the Rudraksha and
chant your Panchakshara, without ever forgetting you, I shall
get deathless life, a everliving liberation, O Siva, who wears
ornaments of serpents and rule Annamalai.

2. O Arunachala, Those fools who do not understand the purpose
of the life, do not know how to overcome the twin karmas, do not
know the Siva Puja and do not even know the ways of Siva's devotees,
are sure to be born again and again, again and again.

3.  O Arunachala, I am surprised.  Your mould is same.  But
how come, some are born chasing the wordly desires and while
some other are born, ever praying you and your devotees, with
closed mouth and folded hands?

4. O Arunachala!  If I contemplate on you, the One without a second,
as the owner of this world, with his movement, moves the living
beings, and be the Master of this universe,  protecting all the lives,
then I shall be rid of all the miseries in this life.

5. O Arunachala!  There is only one medicine, to ward of the
cycles of birth and death and to cure all the ills of this life,
that is, chant, "Annamalai !  Sonagir i!"  Do not go behind the
wastrels of this world telling their names.

1. O Arunachala!  The wise of great tapas always pray and praise
you golden feet and get salavation.  If I could get such conviction,
I, the lowly god,  shall overcome my daily miseries and never
ending birth.

2. O Arunachala! I shall always contemplate on your form,
never leaving the beautiful Uma, which is beyond the reach
of Vishnu and Brahma.

3. O Arunachala!  In order to help the Sages, who were afraid,
you burnt the Tripura.  O Annamalai, the ever living, killer of
Daksha, the Naked Siva of Annamalai, you are my Saviour,
please help me.

4. O Arunachala!  I trust you, the king of Annamalai, I shall
not leave you even if you forsake me or save me and grace me.

5. O Arunachala!  When shall you give me the deathless life?
When shall I get it?    Please tell me, the ever helpful master,
the Nondual, the king mounting the bull?

1. O Arunachala!  The Sages who praise you as the First Cause
and king of Annamalai, wearing garland of skeletons and mounting
a bull, always assure us that miseries will not befall us once we
start praying him.  O the god, whom the Vedas have not been
able to reach, I pray to you.

2. O Arunachala! The king of Annamalai, who rules us.
Let me see your form, where you and your left half Uma are
ever gracing us, please bestow the vision of your form.

3. O Arunachala!  What is the use of this life, for one who
does not contemplate your feet, but merely lives in a cave or
forest or on a hill, eating various herbs and medicines to lengthen
the span of his life?

4. O Arunachala!  If one who does not contemplate on your
feet and the head, which was searched by the pig and the swan,
the form of effulgence that was beyond reach of every god,
what is the aim of life?

5. O Arunachala!  I want to pray to your devotees, to ward of
my miseries.  O Siva, who is better than your devotees for my
prayer, not Vishnu, the god of cloud-like complexion and
the gold hued Brahma, who are still searching you, O  the god
mounted on the bull.

1. O Arunachala, only the fools would think that their birth,
caste, knowledge of the scriptures etc., will show the way
to salvation.  How can one find the feet of my Guru, the king
of Annamalai, through the scriptures?  Tell me, what caste
are you born?

2. O Arunachala, even if one does not have a good birth,
good knowledge of scriptures, or exceptional conduct, it
does not matter, if one circumambulates the temple of
Guru of Annamalai, who is greater than the greatest is
just adequate. He will become greater than the greatest.

3. O Arunachala, one should not forget your name even in
sleep, such person will not be born again.  He will, even in
this life, get great name, great life and wealth and good

4. O Arunachala!  I do not know your front, nor your back.
I am a fool that I do not know who is Arunachala.  I do not
even know the way of praying to you, and the fact that
you are Liberation. I want your grace to have all these,
O King of the Hill!

5. Those who have seen you, O Annamalai, they say that you are
matchless.  With their mind and tongue thinking and speaking
your glory, they will always cry:  O King of gods, king of Annamalai!
They will become hysterical in seeing your form, where Vishnu's
eye adorns your feet and Brahma's skull adorns your hand.

Arunagiri Andati: contnues....

1. O Arunachala!  the One, who consumed the poison from
the milky ocean. It is our duty to pray to you.  If  I constantly
do this, I shall conquer my disease, senility and death, cross
the ocean of samsara,  and I am sure to merge in you golden feet.

2. O Arunachala, if one says, 'Yes, Sonagiri is my God and Guru",
and prays to him everyday, holding his golden feet and if Songiri
considers to grace us, O mind, all your sins and anxieties will

3. O Arunachala, unless I sing the glory of the great three*,
and sing their songs, how can such miracles like the child coming
out of the mouth of a crocodile, or a heavy stone floating on the
water, or a male-palmyra tree getting changed into a female-
palmyra and yielding fruits, happen?

*The great three, have been mentioned in my earlier post.
One new story here, is that when Jnana Sambandha went
to a place and found a devotee-farmer crying that his
palmyra trees have always been male in his grove as such and do
not yield fruits for his livelihood.  The saint poet sang in praise
of Siva and male trees had become female ones showing up
rich bulky palmyra fruits.)

4. O Arunachala!  Let me pray to you everyday and sing your
glory in the temple, lest I do loosen up in my body, my
teeth fall and eyes become blind and god of death stands at
my doorstep calling me!
