Verse  4:


ஊனுடைப் பிறவியை அறுக்க உன்னுவீர்
கானிடை யாடலான் பயில்க ருக்குடிக்
கோனுயர் கோயிலை வணங்கி வைகலும்
வானவர் தொழுகழல் வாழ்த்தி வாழ்மினே.

People who think of completely rooting out births when you have to be born again.
Paying obeisance to the eminent temple of the King in Karukkuti and where Siva who dances in the cremation ground, is staying always. Live long by praising the feet which is worshipped by the celestial beings, daily.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:


மஞ்சுறு பொழில்வள மலிக ருக்குடி
நஞ்சுறு திருமிட றுடைய நாதனார்
அஞ்சுரும் பார்குழல் அரிவை அஞ்சவே
வெஞ்சுரந் தனில்விளை யாடல் என்கொலோ.

The master who has a neck in which there is poison and who is in Karukkuti where fertility is abundant on account of gardens on which clouds stay. What is the reason for playing in the hot forest to make the lady with tresses of hair on which bees have settled?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:


வேதியன் விடையுடை விமலன் ஒன்னலர்
மூதெயில் எரியெழ முனிந்த முக்கணன்
காதியல் குழையினன் கருக்கு டியமர்
ஆதியை அடிதொழ அல்ல லில்லையே.

Siva chants the Vēdas He revealed the Vēdas.  The spotless god who has a bull.
The three-eyed god who by his anger set fire to the old forts of the enemies.
There will be no sufferings if one worships the feet of Siva being the first cause who dwells in Karukkuṭi and who has a men's ear-ring in his ear.

Arunachala Siva.

Tiruk Karukkuti:

Verse  1:


நனவிலும் கனவிலும் நாளும் தன்னொளி
நினைவிலும் எனக்குவந் தெய்து நின்மலன்
கனைகடல் வையகம் தொழுக ருக்குடி
அனலெரி யாடுமெம் அடிகள் காண்மினே.

The immaculate Siva who is the cause for his light of spiritual wisdom to appear in my thoughts daily when I am awake and asleep. You know that he is the god who dances in the burning fire and who is in Karukkuṭi which is worshipped by the people of this world girt by the roaring ocean.

Arunachala Siva.

General topics / Sri Bala Yogi - Mountain Path - April June 2017.
« on: April 26, 2017, 02:19:51 PM »
Sri Siva Bala Yogi was a great saint of modern India.  Though fairly well known in India,
and the West, readers of the Mountain Path are unlikely to have heard much about him and his teachings.  The readership of a few books published in his life and teachings has are not extended beyond his educated devotees.  Sages of Sri Sivabala Yogi's stature ought to be known to a much a wider audience across the world.  Not that they seek fame or money (unlike god-men and god-women who thrive these days!) but to acquaint aspiring souls with the divine word revealed by them.  It is only divine knowledge that, if put into practice sincerely and diligently, leads to the removal of the worries and stresses caused by the competitive living which is such a marked feature of modern life.  The more discriminating aspirants seek a much higher goal, i.e. complete freedom from ignorance to attain Self Realization.

Sri Sivabala Yogi's life story, specifically the severe tapas that he undertook, has many lessons for serious aspirants (Sadhakas). Similarly, his teachings, practiced faithfully,
offer hope to many to achieve their desired end; that could be lower aim of living a peaceful and happy life sans worries or striving for the highest state of knowing the
Reality.

Bhagavan would laugh at the thought that He had renounced the world when He left
Madurai as a boy, for now He had gathered such a large family.  The immense love that
Guru holds for his devotees cannot be explained.  According to the Srimad Bhagavatam,
'Sri Bhagavan said, 'I am completely under the control of My devotees. Indeed, I am not all independent. My heart is controlled by devotees free of material desires. What to speak of My devotee, when even those who are devotees of My devotee are very dear to Me.'

Why in our case should Bhagavan be dependent upon us, His devotees?  It is clear that the knot of love binds all in a embrace that can never be broken.  In this union where is the sense of separation?

We in our case should Bhagavan be dependent upon us, His devotees?  It is clear that the knot of love binds all in embrace that can never be broken.  In this union where is the sense of separation?  We would do well to keep in mind that not only is there boundless love if we but dedicate our hearts and minds to Bhagavan, but that He too ever bound to us and will never desert us in our genuine time of need.

What this means is that the supreme reality is present in all our hearts.  It is a wonder that confounds our sense of logic. It is important to note that Narada concluded that Krishna was not a polygamist; that he was only married to one Reality, though it forms may be many. 

Bhagavan does not conform to our preconceptions.  Like Krishna He is not bound by our prejudices.  He breaks through all our storehouses of conflicting desires and fears for the simple reason that He knows they are unreal and that you and He are joined as one.

The folk tales of Akbar, the great Moghal emperor, and his courtier Birbal are legendary and quoted in India for their humor, wit and sharp intelligence, often at the expense of the envious fellow courtiers of Birbal.

There is a story about Akbar questioned Birbal why Lord Vishnu should himself come to the rescue of Gajendra?  He could easily have sent someone else to rescue the pitiable elephant.  As emperor, Akbar had very many courtiers to do his bidding so as to not to waste his time with trivial mattes.  If Vishnu was a god why could he not do the same?  Birbal replied that he would answer the question but it would take time to explain, and left it at that.

Birbal was responsible for taking care of a beloved child who was the son of Akbar. Birbal watched over the child with loving attention.  One day Birbal arranged for a beautiful stone image of the boy to be carved and placed the statue at the edge of
a well knowing that the emperor had the greatest confidence in Birbal's ability to protect his son from harm. 

In the evening, when shapes were hazy at a distance, Birbal guided Akbar on a walk to the vicinity of the well.  Akbar thought he saw his son by the well and called out to
him to be careful.  Birbal reassured the emperor that there was nothing to fear.

Prior to the evening walk Birbal had organized that someone would be near when Akbar arrived, and unobserved, would push the statue into the well when the emperor was watching.  This happened when Birbal exclaimed in fake terror that the child had fallen into the depths.

Akbar ran immediately to the side of the well. But Birbal took hold of him and said, 'Wait here.  There are so many servants who can bring the boy out of the well.  Send them.'

Akbar was beside himself with anxiety and told Birbal to shut up. Did he not see that his beloved child was in danger and had to be quickly rescued? 

Birbal coolly replied that Akbar need not fear, for his child was safe.  What had fallen into the well as but a statue.  Then Birbal asked Akbar whether he remember the conversation the other day about Gajendra and Lord Vishnu's immediate and personal response to save the elephant?

There are forces at work in this world which are beyond the range of our perception. We are like blind mice feeling our way tentatively by touching the walls of the familiar.  We live in a multi dimensional world where the waking world is but an extension of the dream (svapna) and deep sleep (Sushupti) planes of existence. If we are able believe in a higher purpose to our lives it makes sense that with our limited awareness it is impossible to progress until we surrender our narrow will to a greater will.

Bhagavan is our Guru and as such commands two realities. He is a teacher: through the remembrance of His physical form as a portal, we are able to communicate with this divine force.  We read the instructions He gave us in books and we practice them. He is also the pervasive reality of Truth, (Satyam). He is both teacher and dweller in our hearts.  As a teacher He guides us externally if we but listen.  And as the permanent resident of our Heart, He silently pulls us into the cave of the Heart.  If we allow it Bhagavan will take care of us.  That is His nature and requires no effort on His behalf.  It is spontaneous. 

WE may ask how it can be that He is the indweller in our hearts.

In the Bhagavata Purana it is said that Lord Krishna married 16,000 gopis.  The Purana tells us about the life of Krishna's wives after their marriages.  It is said that each of the wives had a home with maid servants and that Krishna divided himself into multiple forms, one for each wife. Narada, Vishnu's devotee, wandering sage and benign mischief maker, was curious to find out how Krishna managed this.  He went to every house and saw Krishna present with his wife, engaging in domestic activities with kindness and love.

Verse  11:

புண்ணியர் தொழுதெழு பூவ ணத்துறை
அண்ணலை யடிதொழு தந்தண் காழியுள்
நண்ணிய அருமறை ஞானசம் பந்தன்
பண்ணிய தமிழ்சொலப் பறையும் பாவமே.

Worshipping with joined hands the feet of the god who dwells in Pūvaṇam which people of virtuous acts worship getting up from sleep, a native of beautiful and cool Sirkazhi, sins will gradually vanish to recite the Tamizh verses composed by Jnana Sambandhan, who had knowledge of the abstruse Vēdas by intuition.


Padigam on Tiru Puvanam completed.

Verse  10:

மண்டைகொண் டுழிதரு மதியில் தேரரும்
குண்டருங் குணம்அல பேசுங் கோலத்தர்
வண்டமர் வளர்பொழின் மல்கு பூவணம்
கண்டவ ரடிதொழு தேத்தல் கன்மமே.

The Buddhists without intelligence who wander holding an Earthern begging bowl.
and low people Jains who have a form and talk useless words. It is a moral duty to praise and worship with joined hands the feet of those who gained sight of Pūvaṇam where growing gardens in which bees rest, are increasing.

Verse  9:


நீர்மல்கு மலருறை வானும் மாலுமாய்ச்
சீர்மல்கு திருந்தடி சேர கிற்கிலர்
போர்மல்கு மழுவினன் மேய பூவணம்
ஏர்மல்கு மலர்புனைந் தேத்தல் இன்பமே.

Both Brahma who dwells in a lotus flower which flourishes in water and Vishnu joining together, were not capable of reaching the perfect feet whose fame increases.
It is happiness to praise by adorning with flowers of increasing beauty Pūvaṇam where Siva who has a battle-axe, well-trained in warfare, dwells with desire.

விரல்தனில் அடர்த்தவன் வெள்ளை நீற்றினன்
பொருபுனல் புடையணி பூவ ணந்தனைப்
பரவிய அடியவர்க் கில்லை பாவமே.

Siva pressed down the tall crowns of the strong demon who lifted the mountain, by his toe, smears white sacred ash. There will be no sins to those who praised Pūvaṇam, made beautiful on all sides by water which dashes against the banks.

அறைமல்கு கழல்தொழ அல்லல் இல்லையே.

Siva dance and sing to the measuring of time by drum and increasing number of Muzhavu chants the flourishing Vēdas and dwells in Pūvaṇam adorned by increasing weight of flowers. He has a lady as one half. There will be no sufferings to worship his feet wearing Kazhal whose sound increases.

நறுமல ரடிதொழ நன்மை யாகுமே.

Siva who wears a dress indicating playful mischief, who dwells in Pūvaṇam made beautiful by mast-wood trees that spread their fragrance, beautiful feted cassia and Surapuṉṉai, has doctrines which cannot be destroyed. Prosperity will increase to worship his feet which are like fragrant flowers.
