Verse  7:

அடிபுல்கு பைங்கழல்கள் ஆர்ப்பப்பேர்ந்தோர் அனலேந்திக்
கொடிபுல்கு மென்சாயல் உமையோர் பாகங்கூடினீர்
பொடிபுல்கு நூன்மார்பர் புரிநூலாளர் தலைச்சங்கைக்
கடிபுல்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாகக் கலந்தீரே.

Holding fire and dancing to make the golden armors of the feet that embrace them to make a sound you were united with Uma who has tenderness like the creeper, on one half, you joined the well-guarded temple in Talai Chaṅkai where Brahmins who desired the study of the Vēdas wear a sacred thread on their chest smeared with holy ash, as the temple fitting your greatness.

Verse  4:


வேடஞ்சூழ் கொள்கையீர் வேண்டிநீண்ட வெண்டிங்கள்

மாடஞ்சூழ் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

31.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, eternal, motionless and undiminishing.
Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the frontier of words, the Essence that is.

32.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the one self, ever the one self. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, doing nothing, nor standing still.

33.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, neither going nor staying.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss. There is nothing in the least apart from Brahman.

34. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, neither fair nor dark. Brahman is indeed
Being Awareness Bliss, the substratum of all and inexhaustible.

35.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, neither quiet nor garrulous. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, neither you, nor I, nor anything in the least.

36. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, beyond the beyond, ungenerated, Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, beyond the tattvas, (the twenty four cosmic principles), the grand celebration.

37.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the supreme wide expanse. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, always in the form of the Guru.

38.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, ever the blemishless form. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the vast and pure consciousness.

39.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the self, shining by itself. Brahman is
indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the certitude and thus the cause of itself.

40. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, shining by itself. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, manifests as the manifold.

The Guru's Behests Are His Upadesa"

Some time passed.  Bhagavan and I were now together, alone, but He did not say anything to me.  I just knew that this was an important moment in my spiritual instruction.  He took a scoop of flour in a ladle from out of a small tin container near Him, transferred it into a cooking utensil, added water to it from His kamandalam (water pitcher made of gourd shell kept by sadhus), then placed the utensil on the charcoal brazier next to Him, which was then doing duty as room warmer. Watching silently I waited, imagining it to be some concoction of a body tonic, and hopeful of being served a helping.

Bhagavan kept stirring the contents until it was cooked to a gruel-like consistency, and then took the vessel off the fire.  He poured some of its contents onto a plate, and then rose  and lifted a basket that was kept upside down.  From underneath, four tiny puppets came springing out and rushed towards the plate trying to lick the gruel down. Lest the hot gruel should burn their tongue, Bhagavan tried to restrain them but could not succeed.

Bhagavan, who had until now not uttered a word to me, said, 'Hold all the four on!'
I at once grabbed the four puppies. As the meal cooled down, He said, 'Let go one by one.' As I had earlier determined to seek the deeper meaning of His words, I took His first command to mean, 'Hold on to the four Maha Vakyas!'  That would be my Master's very first spiritual instruction.  I took His second bidding to mean that I should give up all attachments.  I let go of the puppies, one by one.  They lapped up their meal, and the bellies filled, tottered off when one of them urinated. Getting up
at once, Bhagavan poured some water over the mess and wiped the spot clean with a rag of gunny sack.

I became restless wanting to do the cleaning myself but controlled the urge, not daring to do something unbidden. Bhagavan returned to His seat.  Now, it was another one's turn to urinate.  Seeing my quandary, Bhagavan said, 'Wipe it clean!'  I rose up and washed it clean with water.  I took His third 'commandment' to mean, 'Cleanse your mind and keep it spotless.'  These commandments' of Bhagavan gave me a pervading feeling of peace and joy.

concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

I asked them the way to Bhagavan's place of residence.  Seeing exhaustion writ all over my face and hearing my Malayalam accented Tamizh, they said in a sympathetic tone,
'Poor chap!  You are exhausted. Take a dip in this tank and proceed up this path and you will reach Bhagavan's place (Skandasramam). Remain there.  We will be bringing food up which we will share with you.'  Accordingly, I had my bath and was cleansed of all dirt on my external physique.  But, I still had to be cleansed of all the muck inside and gain inner purity, so I up, even as a calf fondly rushes headlong towards its mother cow.

Darshan of the Sad Guru:

While on my way up I began formulating mentally, the manner of saluting and the mode of general behavior while in the presence of the Guru.  I resolved that the very first words that the Master addresses to me, I shall take as His upadesa. Reaching
Skandasramam, I stood enthralled at the sight of Bhagavan.  At that moment, my friend Ramakrishna Swami, Perumal Swami and Akandananda -- all three were prostrate before Bhagavan. Needless to say, I joined them in salutation.

Ramakrishna Swami was surprised and happy to see me.  He at once introduced me to Bhagavan, saying, 'This man comes from my place, where he has been following ascetic discipline since childhood.'  Bhagavan looked at me nodding His head in approval. Asking me to remain there, the other two left.  Later, I learnt that they had gone down to bury one Annamalai Swami of Arani town, who had been serving Bhagavan and had died of plague.

I could hear sounds of weeping from an inner room.  I turned to see a grief stricken old lady saying amidst her cries, 'Alas!  This gem of a boy Annamalai is now gone! What cruel injustice!'  Someone was sitting near her.  Bhagavan turned towards them and said, by way of consolation, 'Why do you grieve?  Another young man has now come to fill his absence.'  At that time, I could not understand the significance of those words, but could only much, much later, I learnt that the lady inside was none other than Azhagamma, Bhagavan's Mother and the other one was his brother, Niranjananda Swami.

It was now eight am, when Ramalingam Pillai, known popularly as Pinnalur Turiyanandan, called me near and handed me a bowl made of baked clay. Himself taking one, he sat down to eat along with me, under a naaval tree (Jambulina).  Bhagavan sat on a raised platform nearby, with a bowl in front of Him. Venu Ammal, the sister of Echammal who had been offering cooked food to Bhagavan every day, served us rice and rasam (pepper soup).  And we had our repast.

Verse  11:

ஒப்பரிய பூம்புகலி யோங்குகோயின் மேயானை
அப்பரிசிற் பதியான அணிகொண்ஞான சம்பந்தன்
செப்பரிய தண்டமிழாற் றெரிந்தபாட லிவைவல்லார்
எப்பரிசி லிடர்நீங்கி யிமையோருலகத் திருப்பாரே.

On the Lord who gladly resides in the flourishing temple in beautiful Pukali which has no equal, Jnana Sambandhan wearing ornaments, who is the chief of such a high honor which cannot be explained in words. Those who are capable of reciting the choice verses composed in pleasant Tamizh, which cannot be recited by those who do not have the grace of the Lord, in whatever they may get sufferings they will be free from them and enjoy the pleasures in the paradise of the Devas.

Padigam on Tirup Pukali completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


நெடிதாய வன்சமணு நிறைவொன்றில்லாச் சாக்கியருங்
கடிதாய கட்டுரையாற் கழறமேலோர் பொருளானீர்
பொடியாரு மேனியினீர் புகலிமறையோர் புரிந்தேத்த
வடிவாருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.


The tall and strong Jains and Buddhists, who do not have fullness of knowledge,
you were above the abuse of the exceedingly fabricated falsehood (of both of them). You have a body on which sacred ash is smeared. You dwelt happily in the well-shaped temple in Pukali where Brahmins praised you with love, as the temple desired by you.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:

சலந்தாங்கு தாமரைமே லயனுந்தரணி யளந்தானுங்
கலந்தோங்கி வந்திழிந்துங் காணாவண்ணங் கனலானீர்
புலந்தாங்கி யைம்புலனுஞ் செற்றார்வாழும் பூம்புகலி
நலந்தாங்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாக நயந்தீரே.

Brahma, who is seated on the lotus which is supported by water, and Vishnu, who measured the world, you became a column of fire as not to be seen (by both of them) though they joined and flew high and went descending down the earth, having borne in mind knowledge of reality. You desired the temple which has many architectural beauties in beautiful Pukali where wise men who have annihilated the five senses of the body, as the temple suitable to you.

பரந்தோங்கு பல்புகழ்சே ரரக்கர்கோனை வரைக்கீழிட்
டுரந்தோன்றும் பாடல்கேட் டுகவையளித்தீ ருகவாதார்
புரந்தோன்று மும்மதிலு மெரியச்செற்றீர் பூம்புகலி
வரந்தோன்று கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.


Having placed the king of demons who had many kinds of fame which spread for and wide and increased, under the mountain (Kailāsa), you granted boons out of joy, on hearing the songs which came out of his knowledge (of the Vēdas) [It is said that Siva's anger subsided on hearing Ravanan chanting the musical Sama Veda.
Siva granted Ravanan, a sword and a lease of long life;]. You destroyed the three fortifications which appeared like cities belonging to your enemies. You rejoiced to dwell in the eminent temple in beautiful Pukali as the temple desired by you.

களிபுல்கு வல்லவுண ரூர்மூன்றெரியக் கணைதொட்டீர்
அளிபுல்கு பூமுடியீர் அமரரேத்த வருள்செய்தீர்
தெளிபுல்கு தேனினமு மலருள்விரைசேர் திண்புகலி
ஒளிபுல்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாக வுகந்தீரே.

You shot an arrow to burn the three cities of the strong demons, who were inebriated with power. You have a head adorned with flowers on which bees swarm. You bestowed your grace on Devas, when they worshipped you you rejoiced to dwell in the temple of great brilliance in strong Pukali where the bees of bright color collect the fragrance which is inside the flowers.

Arunachala Siva.
