Verse  6:


தொகுத்தவன் அருமறை அங்கம் ஆகமம்
வகுத்தவன் வளர்பொழிற் கூக மேவினான்
மிகுத்தவன் மிகுத்தவர் புரங்கள் வெந்தறச்
செகுத்தவன் உறைவிடம் திருவிற் கோலமே.


Siva codified the abstruse Vedas which were spread out as many and the six Aṅkams,
classified the Akamams.  He desired Kūkam which has growing gardens.  He has no equals and superiors. He destroyed completely the cities of the proud demons, to be burnt by fire. His dwelling place is Tiruviṟkōlam.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:

முந்தினான் மூவருள் முதல்வன் ஆயினான்
கொந்துலா மலர்ப்பொழிற் கூக மேவினான்
அந்திவான் பிறையினான் அடியர் மேல்வினை
சிந்துவான் உறைவிடம் திருவிற் கோலமே.

Siva is the primordial god.  He is the chief among Brahma, Hari and Rudran, the trinity. He desires to dwell in Kūkam which has gardens in which the breeze moves in the bunches of flowers. He wears a crescent moon that rises in the evening.
Tiruviṟkōlam is the dwelling place of Sivaṉ who destroys all the acts which are attached to devotees.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:

விதைத்தவன் முனிவருக் கறமுன் காலனை
உதைத்தவன் உயிரிழந் துருண்டு வீழ்தரப்
புதைத்தவன் நெடுநகர்ப் புரங்கள் மூன்றையும்
சிதைத்தவன் உறைவிடம் திருவிற் கோலமே.

Siva impressed in the minds of the sages, long ago, with moral teachings. who diminished the strength of Yama by kicking him long ago to make him fall rolling on the ground losing his life. Tiuvriṟkōlam is the dwelling place of the Lord who destroyed all the long cities which were known by the names of Puram.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:

ஐயன்நல் லதிசயன் அயன்விண் ணோர்தொழும்
மையணி கண்டனார் வண்ண வண்ணம்வான்
பையர வல்குலாள் பாகம் ஆகவும்
செய்யவன் உறைவிடம் திருவிற் கோலமே.


Siva is the chief. He has great wonders. The color of the god who is beautified in the neck by the poison and who is worshipped by the celestial beings led by Brahma.
He is the color of the evening sky. Tiruviṟkōlam is the dwelling place of Siva who is red in color though Uma who has a waist like the hood of the cobra, is on one half.
The blue color of Uma has not diminished the red color of Siva.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 2:

சிற்றிடை யுமையொரு பங்க னங்கையில்
உற்றதோர் எரியினன் ஒரு சரத்தினால்
வெற்றிகொள் அவுணர்கள் புரங்கள் வெந்தறச்
செற்றவன் உறைவிடம் திருவிற் கோலமே.

Siva has Uma of small waist on one half.  He has on the palm a fire. Tiruviṟkōlam is the dwelling-place of Siva who destroyed completely by burning the cities of the demons who had been formerly victorious, by a single arrow.

Tiru vir kolam:

Verse 1:

உருவினார் உமையொடும் ஒன்றி நின்றதோர்
திருவினான் வளர்சடைத் திங்கள் கங்கையான்
வெருவிவா னவர்தொழ வெகுண்டு நோக்கிய
செருவினான் உறைவிடம் திருவிற் கோலமே.

Siva has the brilliance of being united with Uma who is full of beauty. He has on his growing matted locks crescent moon and the river, Ganga. Tiruviṟkōlam is the dwelling place of Siva who gazed in the battle with anger when the celestial beings worshipped him, being afraid of the demons, in the three cities.

Arunachala Siva.

An Asram has now been constructed there.  Sathyaraju may have escaped from the human trouble makers, but was now faced with even worse perils:  He now faced annoyance and attacks from rodents, mosquitoes, large ants, and snakes including cobras.  All of them had a field day as he sat in continuous tapas year after year for eight years till 7th August 1957, without any sleep.  He permitted himself a half hour break every night from 11.30 pm. to midnight to have a bath and for other bodily functions, and also to partake of a glass of milk.  Even this was discontinued for many
months at a time.

As with years rolled by, Swamiji's body became weak.  His matted hair, with bird droppings on it, grew to his waist.  Many a time Sathyaraju suffered intense burning sensation all over his body, excruciating stomach pains and, for almost three years,
lost control of his limbs.  He was bitten by snakes (including four cobras) at least ten times.  He survived all these ordeals due to his divine guru's grace.

Satyaraju did not even know who his divine guru was. The latter's identity was revealed by the divine guru himself, twelve years later (in 1961), in response to a query Sathyanarayana raised. He was Sri Sankar Bhagavan, the Lord Siva, who is guru of all
yogis. It is difficult to relate in full the fascinating story of Sathyaraju's tapas that began on 7th August 1949, in this strange and dramatic fashion and ended on 7th August 1961. Yet it essential to know what transpired during these long years to appreciate Sathyaraju's stupendous spiritual feat, that transformed an uneducated village boy to a yogi of the highest class.

As Satyarajum sat on the canal bank in Samadhi, his friends thought he was either playacting or was possessed by a spirit and roughly tried to wake him up.  They failed to do so.  They then informed his family, who tried taking him home without success. After a couple of days he moved from the canal bank to sit under a bodhi tree at the
end of the village street.  There his mother cried her heart out of for him to return home, but it was his grandfather who persuaded her to let him continue with his tapas. Some kindhearted villagers built a thatched roof over him.

But he was faced with a new problem: he was taunted and made fun of by boys who harassed him in every way, including beating him with sticks.  Once a burning cloth was thrown at him by some malicious boys.  All this had not effect on Sathyaraju's resolve to carry on with his tapas, because he had lost all bodily consciousness after the first hour of his practice.  Sathyaraju then moved to the village's burial ground on 18th November 1949, to escape from his tormentors.  This burial ground was to become Sri Sivabala Yogi's tapas sthana (sacred place where tapas is done) and he sat in tapas continuously till 7th August 1961.

It was a Sunday and the young boys were in indulging in playing pranks and games.  Sathyaraju had been playing a game of marbles, since the morning and at about 2 o' clock decided, along with a few friends, to go for a swim in the small Godavari Canal on the outskirts of the village.  Enroute, laughing and joking, they strayed across to a palmyra grove. As they got close to it, three fruits fell from a tree and some boys rushed to collect them.  They were equally distributed amongst twelve of them and the boys walked on to the canal.  All of a sudden Satyaraju's body began to shake and he saw a brilliant light emerge from his share of the fruit and heard the blissful sound of Omkara emanating from it.

His body became still and his confusion was replaced by wonder when he beheld an 18 inch black stone of Sivalingam in his hand instead of the fruit.  Then the exceedingly beautiful form of a divine yogi, made of light, emerged from the Sivalingam.  He was over seven feet tall, young looking and with matted hair tied in a knot on his head.  This awe inspiring divine figure then commanded Sathyaraju (in Telugu) to sit in Padmasana. 

On being informed of his ignorance about it, the divine guru taught him how to adopt it.  The divine guru then touched his brikuti (the space between the eyebrows) and Sathyaraju immediately entered Sahaja Samadhi, the highest state of Self Realization.
It was in this unique way that a fourteen year old boy, who had neither previous knowledge of spiritual matters nor any desire to seek any spiritual goal, was initiated into the discipline of Tapas Yoga.

Verse 11:


நற்றமிழ் ஞானசம் பந்தன் நான்மறை
கற்றவன் காழியர் மன்னன் உன்னிய
அற்றமில் மாலையீ ரைந்தும் அஞ்செழுத்
துற்றன வல்லவர் உம்ப ராவரே.


Jnana Sambandhan who had knowledge of refined Tamizh, who learnt the four Vēdas,
and the chief of the inhabitants of Sirkazhi, those who are capable of reciting the harmless garlands which contain the greatness of the Mantra of five letters on which he meditated and sang, after their life in this world will become celestial beings.

Padigam of Panchkashara Tirup Padigam completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:

புத்தர் சமண்கழுக் கையர் பொய்கொளாச்
சித்தத் தவர்கள் தெளிந்து தேறின
வித்தக நீறணி வார்வி னைப்பகைக்
கத்திரம் ஆவன அஞ்செ ழுத்துமே.

Those who did not accept the false doctrines of Buddhists and Jains who held in their hands stake for impaling, were very clear in their minds, are weapons to beat with, the enemies of acts of those who adorn their bodies with sacred ash which is capable of destroying all sins.

Verse  9:


கார்வணன் நான்முகன் காணு தற்கொணாச்
சீர்வணச் சேவடி செவ்வி நாள்தொறும்
பேர்வணம் பேசிப் பிதற்றும் பித்தர்கட்
கார்வணம் ஆவன அஞ்செ ழுத்துமே.

The five letters, to those devotees who praise many a time daily uttering the name of Siva and nature of the red feet which have the fame of not being seen by Vishnu who has color of the sable cloud and Brahma of four faces, have the nature of enjoying them endlessly.

Verse  8:


வண்டம ரோதி மடந்தை பேணின
பண்டை யிராவணன் பாடி உய்ந்தன
தொண்டர்கள் கொண்டு துதித்த பின்னவர்க்
கண்டம் அளிப்பன அஞ்செ ழுத்துமே.


The Mantram consisting of five letters, was cherished with love by the lady who has tresses of hair on which bees settle. These were the cause of Ravana singing them and saving himself, in the past of, Namasivaya Tiruppadigam of Jnana Sambandhan grants rule over the many universe if the devotees recite them as their duty and praise Siva.

வீடு பிறப்பை அறுத்து மெச்சினர்

Verse  6:


தும்மல் இருமல் தொடர்ந்த போழ்தினும்
வெம்மை நரகம் விளைந்த போழ்தினும்

அம்மையி னுந்துணை அஞ்செ ழுத்துமே.
