Verse  8:


பண்மொய்த்த வின்மொழியாள் பயமெய்த மலையெடுத்த
உன்மத்த னுரநெரித்தன் றருள்செய்தா னுறைகோயில்
கண்மொய்த்த கருமஞ்ஞை நடமாடக் கடன் முழங்க
விண்மொய்த்த பொழில்வரிவண் டிசைமுரலும் வெண்காடே.


The temple in which the Lord who crushed the chest of the madcap who lifted the mountain to make the lady of sweet words like melodies to be seized with fear, and then bestowed his grace, in the distant past, resides. The blue peacock of dense stars in its tail to dance, and the sea to roar, is Veṇkāṭu where in the garden which covers the sky bees with lines make a sound.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:


சக்கரமாற் கீந்தானுஞ் சலந்தரனைப் பிளந்தானும்
அக்கரைமே லசைத்தானும் அடைந்தயிரா வதம்பணிய
மிக்கதனுக் கருள்சுரக்கும் வெண்காடும் வினைதுரக்கும்
முக்குளநன் குடையானு முக்கணுடை யிறையவனே.

The Lord who gave the discus to Vishnu, who tied round his waist bones, and who has the good three tanks - which drive away sins and Veṇkāṭu which showered grace in an abundant measure when the white-colored elephant by name Ayirāvatam reached that place and worshipped the Lord is the Lord who has three eyes. [The three tanks are referred to in this verse also].

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:


தண்மதியும் வெய்யரவுந் தாங்கினான் சடையினுடன்
ஒண்மதிய நுதலுமையோர் கூறுகந்தா னுறைகோயில்
பண்மொழியால் அவன்நாமம் பலவோதப் பசுங்கிள்ளை
வெண்முகில்சேர் கரும்பெணைமேல் வீற்றிருக்கும் வெண்காடே.

The Lord has borne on his matted locks of hair the cool crescent moon and the cruel cobra together, the temple where the Lord who is happy to have on his form Uma,
who has a forehead resembling the bright crescent, as a half. When devotees are chanting his many names with words as sweet as melodies, is Veṇkāṭu where the green parrot is perched majestically on the black Palmyra tree on which white clouds rest.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:


வேலைமலி தண்கானல் வெண்காட்டான் றிருவடிக்கீழ்
மாலைமலி வண்சாந்தால் வழிபடுநன் மறையவன்றன்
மேலடர்வெங் காலனுயிர் விண்டபினை நமன் றூதர்
ஆலமிடற் றானடியா ரென்றடர வஞ்சுவரே.

At the feet of the Lord in Veṇkāṭu, which has cool sea-shore gardens flourishing by the sea, after the life of Yama who came to attack upon the good Brahmin who worshipped with a great quantity of fragrant sandal-paste and garlands, was separated (by the Lord) the messengers of Yama, will be afraid of attacking people who are devotees of the Lord who has poison in his neck. [The story contained in this verse is about Svatakētu who worshipped god in this shrine; This is found in the Puraṇam about this shrine].

Verse  4:


விடமுண்ட மிடற்றண்ணல் வெண்காட்டின் றண்புறவின்
மடல்விண்ட முடத்தாழை மலர் நிழலைக் குருகென்று
தடமண்டு துறைக்கெண்டை தாமரையின் பூமறையக்
கடல்விண்ட கதிர்முத்தம் நகைகாட்டுங் காட்சியதே.


In the cool jungle of Veṇkāṭu of the Lord who has a neck which drank the poison,
mistaking the reflection in the water of the flower of the curved fragrant screw-pine, whose petals have unfolded, to be the white crane, the fish Keṇtai, which moves swiftly in the tank, hides under the lotus flower. The lustrous pearl which left the sea seems to be showing its teeth.

Verse  3:


மண்ணொடுநீ ரனல்காலோ டாகாய மதியிரவி
எண்ணில்வரு மியமான னிகபரமு மெண்டிசையும்
பெண்ணினொடாண் பெருமையொடு சிறுமையுமாம் பேராளன்
விண்ணவர்கோன் வழிபடவெண் காடிடமா விரும்பினனே.


The renowned personage who is small as well as big, who has male and female halves, who is the eight directions, the life in this world and the life after that, the eight forms, which are the five elements, moon, sun and esteemed person who performs sacrifices.

Verse  2:


பேயடையா பிரிவெய்தும் பிள்ளையினோ டுள்ளநினை
வாயினவே வரம்பெறுவ ரையுறவேண் டாவொன்றும்
வேயனதோ ளுமைபங்கன் வெண்காட்டு முக்குளநீர்
தோய்வினையா ரவர்தம்மைத் தோயாவாந் தீவினையே.


Devils will not approach people, if they are possessed by them they will go away from those people. People will be granted boon like getting issued and other boons which they have in their minds. People should not have even the slightest doubt about these.
sins will not afflict those who bathe in the water of the three tanks in Veṇkāṭu of the Lord who has Uma whose shoulders resemble the bamboo, on his half. [This stanza is connected with the birth of Meykaṅtār, the author of Siva Jnana Bodham].

Arunachala Siva.

Tiru Venkatu:

Verse 1:

கண்காட்டு நுதலானுங் கனல்காட்டுங் கையானும்
பெண்காட்டு முருவானும் பிறைகாட்டுஞ் சடையானும்
பண்காட்டு மிசையானும் பயிர்காட்டும் புயலானும்
வெண்காட்டி லுறைவானும் விடைகாட்டுங் கொடியானே.

The Lord who has on his forehead an eye which is fire!  He has on his hand fire, has a lady on his form, has a crescent moon on his matted locks of hair. He is in the form of music which has many Pans. He is in the form of cloud which nourishes the vegetation, and who resides in Veṇkāṭu.  He has a banner in which the bull is exhibited.

I was sent to the Thinnai School of my village, (Thinnai is the raised veranda, open to
the streets, forming the entry to traditional South Indian street houses. In small villages, children were sent to this single class, single teacher 'school', that functioned on the thinnai of one of the larger houses of the village. They would be taught the alphabets and basic arithmetic tables. During Kunju Swami's childhood all that most children got was their 'schooling' at the thinnai school, which would generally last just a year, or two at the most.) when I was nearing six where, to some extent, I managed to learn to read my vernacular Malayalam and to write it on palm leaves. From my seventh year on, my father used to take me with him daily to bathe in the village pond.  There, I would see Vedic Brahmins bathing in the adjacent ghats (the pond's shoreline earmarked into exclusive bathing segments for the various social groups of the village), chanting mantras while standing waist deep in water. Their sight kindled in me a keen desire to do it like them.

The desire persisted and soon turned into an obsession hen one night Lord Siva appeared in a dream.  With matted tresses of hair, body smeared all over with sacred ash, and wearing a string of Rudraksha beads (A sacred seed that forms a part of Siva's costume, literally meaning 'Siva's eye'.  These roundish beads are strung and worn around the neck by devotees of Siva as a mark of their devotion to Him, and would also double as a rosary.).

He pronounced the Panchakshari (the five syllabled) na-ma-si-va-ya mantra) in my ears, three times in succession. On waking up, however, I was unable to recall the syllable, being too young to remember it.  The whole of next day I felt grieved, as though I lost a treasure that I had obtained.  I went to bed that night overcome by disappointment and longing.  The Lord came again that night in my dream and repeated the mantra!  This time I listened with attention and, from then on, I took up ceaseless mental chanting of the Panchakshari Mantra.

The first four chapters of the above titled book are given below:

A blessed bee am I, to hover, ever in close proximity of the lotus that is verily the twin feet of Lord Annamalai, and drink deep the nectar therein.  Twice blessed indeed, to partake of the ambrosial grace of my Bhagavan, Guru Ramana, who, ever abiding as the Atman-Self, also led others on the path of deliverance.  It is my fortunate lot to have thus been twice blessed.

Endowed At Boyhood with God's Gracious Gifts:

I am the third child to my parents, Raghavan and Ponnukutti, of a middle class farming community, born in January 1897, in the village of Cherakodu that lies between Palakkad and Chittur towns in the Kerala region.  Until my third year I grew
up like any other child, showing nothing to mark me as being different from other children.

After that I would, it seems, sit quiet in some place, neither joining other children
of my age in play nor crying or throwing those childish tantrums.  This uncharacteristic behavior of mine naturally puzzled my father who then showed my horoscope to my maternal uncle, an expert astrologer.  My father wanted him to divine the planetary influences that would account for my odd behavior. 

On perusing my horoscope this uncle of mine was struck with wonder and delight! He said to my father, 'To beget a child such as this one, so full of wealth of divinity, is more than what our family of modest standing deserves!  Therefore, in bringing up this child, you should show every care in matters of food and ceremonial cleanliness.'
My father was much pleased to hear this pronouncement. He was well learned in Vedantic texts such as Kaivalya Navaneetham.  On the one hand, he evinced a keen interest in philosophic texts such of Vedanta and, on the other, held a deep faith in God.

Verse 11:


கானமர் சோலைக் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
தேனமர் பூம்பாவைப் பாட்டாகச் செந்தமிழான்
ஞானசம் பந்த னலம்புகழ்ந்த பத்தும்வல்லார்
வானசம் பந்தத் தவரோடும் வாழ்வாரே.


In the form of songs addressed to the lady who is like a portrait, wearing flower, in which there is honey, with reference to Siva, who dwells with desire in Kapālīcharam which has fragrant gardens, those who are able to recite all the ten verses which praised the festivals conducted in Mayilai, by Jnana Sambandhan, who has good knowledge of refined Tamizh, will be live along with those who have attained salvation.

Padigam on Tiru Mylapore completed.

Verse  10:


உரிஞ்சாய வாழ்க்கை யமணுடையைப் போர்க்கும்
இருஞ்சாக் கியர்க ளெடுத்துரைப்ப நாட்டில்
கருஞ்சோலை சூழ்ந்த கபாலீச் சரத்தான்றன்
பெருஞ்சாந்தி காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.

Jains, who lead a life having stripped off their cloths, and the black Buddhists, slander loudly. Siva who dwells with desire in Kapālīcharam surrounded by dark gardens in the country, do you go without seeing the great bath at the end of the festival?

Verse  9:

நற்றா மரைமலர்மே னான்முகனு நாரணனும்

கற்றார்க ளேத்துங் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
பொற்றாப்புக் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.

Brahma of four faces who is seated on a beautiful lotus flower and Narayana,
Siva who has a form, and whose holy feet both of them had no ability to know completely and who dwells in Kapālicharam praised by learned people do you go without seeing the golden swing festival.

Verse  8:

தண்ணா வரக்கன்றோள் சாய்த்துகந்த தாளினான்
கண்ணார் மயிலைக் கபாலீச் சரமமர்ந்தான்
பண்ணார் பதினெண் கணங்கடம் மட்டமிநாள்
கண்ணாரக் காணாதே போதியோ பூம்பாவாய்.

Siva had a foot which became great and with which he broke off the shoulders of the demon, who was low, dwells in Kapālicharam which is captivating the eye, with desire.
do you go without seeing the eight day of the fortnight (light or dark) to the complete satisfaction of the eyes, when the eighteen classes of celestial hosts who are well-versed in seven swara music worship Siva.

Arunachala Siva.
