Part 11: Miscllaneous Poems:  Triuvannamalai Thani Venba:

1. O Arunachala!  Giver of adequate wealth and gold.  Even
if I be born again, shall I get your Presence, shall I get
your grace and union?

2. O Arunachala!  Give me nice rice, sugar, honey, ghee and
milk everyday.  You also give me a hundred years of life
for praying to you and confer liberation at the end.

3. O Arunachala!  We have wasted our time with a lot of
desires, for ornaments, women, children, relatives, food
and other wealth.  Please save us at least now.

4. O Arunachala!  What is the use of daily telling prayers
without love for you?  What is the use of resisting food and
sleep.  What is the use of ignoring women?  Unless I have
got a limitless love for you, these resistances are of no avail.

5. O Arunachala!  When shall I leave this mad search for
food, clothes, rulership over the country, amassing wealth.
Let me leave all these and contemplate only on you.

Part 9 - Thiru manjana Venba - Glory of Holy Bathing Waters:

"Thiru manjanam", in all sects of Hinduism, indicates the waters
that are used for bathing the sculptor of gods and goddesses.  While
the bathing, is done with milk, honey, coconut water, perfumed
water, honey, fruit jams, sandal paste, vibhuti (in case of Siva
lingams only), rose water and plain water, the waters with turmeric
paste is of special significance, particularly for goddesses.  In
orthodox Hindu familiies in India, even today women bathe in
water mixed with turmeric powder, even though days have changed
with a variety of shampoos!  Turmeric is a anti-spectic and it
is used by women to remove the unwanted hairs on the legs and
hands.  Saint Manikkavachakar has got a decad called 'Tirupor-
chunnam, bathing Siva, with a bathing powder, mixed with gold
powder!  In Siva manasa pooja, Sankara mentions about cool
waters of Himalayas and kasturi and sandal paste!  Again in
Chatur-shashti Upacharam, Sankara mentions bathing Mother
Uma, with various perfumes, water, sandal paste and turmeric

We have got only 10 songs of Guhai Namasivaya in this part.

Bhagavan while staying in the temple precincts of Arunachalesvarar
Temple, in the early days, was given the milk mixed with all these,
after bathing Siva and Unnamualai, by a merciful priest, as food to drink!   Bhagavan Sri Ramana, the son of  Siva, was given this prasad to drink
for several days, when he was not taking any food in the Temple!

1. O Arunachala! Your holy bathing waters shall prevent birth for
me, give me a godly form, confer all the necessary wealth for my
living, gives death conquering nectar.

Amman mel Thirunama Venba: continues....

1. O Mother Unnamulai!  You are not afraid of the dangling
skull of Vishnu* on the front of your husband. Nor you afraid
of the skull that is dangling on his trident.   Added to these
all terrific sights, your husband has also got poison on his throat.
How come, you are fearless to occupy the left half of Annamalai,
who is a column of a conflagration!

2. O Mother Unnamulai, you are delivering all the living beings
of this universe from your womb and you give them milk daily.
How come, you are called Unnamulai, a mother with unsuckled
breasts?  Please tell me mother, Unnamulai!

3. O Siva!  For your wife Unnamulai, Who is her relative?  Who is
alien to her?  In the wide world, for all the bad and all the good,
she is the mother.

4. O Mother Unnamulai, who has taken the left side of Siva
with all her passion!  Is it not also your duty, to confer a good
life for all your devotees who come to you with thirst and make
them live happliy for ever?

Amman mel Thirunama Venba:  continues......

1. O Mother Unnamulai!  I am not praying to you.  Nor do I
chant Panchakshara, Namasivaya.  I am vainly suffering from
waves of diseases.  I am not able to keep the feet of Annamalai,
on my head.  O Mother Unnamulai, save me.

2. O Mother Unnamulai!  I have no clothes to wear.  Namasivaya,
my beddings have become old!  The all giving Father Annamalai
has not yet arrived.  Please tell him, Mother!

3. O Mother Unnamulai.  Siva, the blemishless, has given you
two measures of rice so that everyone can take food from you.*
You are the left half of Annamalai, and you are the god of
Annamalai.  You are the god to me too.

(* This story has already been given by me.)

4.  O Mother Unnamulai, you are the controller of dharma sala,
the house of dharmas.  Those devotees who always think of
you without forgetting and do service to you, shall ever live
through all the eons.

Amman mel Thiru Nama Venba: continues....

1. O Mother Unnamulai, you are the only support for me.
I, the worst sinner,  have no other support, than you.
Please bear with my mistakes and sins.  Even if you decide
to punish me a little bit, how can I bear? Is it dharma for you?

2. O Mother Unnamulai, I do not chant anything other than
Siva's name, the god who consumed poison from the milky ocean.
I have not gone through the ways of my senses.   Why then,
do you punish me, the mother, the substance of all Vedas.
Do not hate me lest I am lost.

3. O Mother Unnamulai, Who else is there excepting you as
my refuge?  How can a mother, fail to take care of the child
born to her?  Who else is my mother, other than you?

4.   O Mother Unnamulai, I am also a slave, like you to Siva,
Annamalai.  Do not forsake me.  While Annamalai is the support
for the world and you are her wife and I am your son, is it not?

Name, Unnamulai.

1. O Mother Unnamulai, who stays in Tiruvannamalai, with her
concorporate Siva, the king of Tiruvannamalai, I shall always
utter your holy name!  I shall always remember your consort
Siva, who measures rice for my food, and whose feet could
not be searched by Vishnu, the lotus eyed god.  He has given
me that feet for my salvation.

2. O Mother Unnamulai, I always consider you as my Mother.

karmas.  What other medicine I can seek.  You are the only sure
