'Love the painting, love the poetry and song of religion, love its vast possessions and its sacred rites.  But also love the flowering orchard, the golden sun and the still pond where a distant star is sometimes reflected.  And know that we will never be able to explain anything, no matter how many wells of knowledge we drink from. Know that man himself, and the Reality all around him and within him, is deeper, vaster, richer than any of the theories yet devised  to explain it all away.  Know that the grand venture of man is only beginning and that we have the astounding privilege of partaking of it this very moment, here and now, before the hour and the day fade away forever. Know that we were meant to savor this fleeting life, consider it a thing of exquisite beauty, adorn and embellish it as much as we can...'

I will serve no other Lord:  continues...

42. I am not ignorant of the fact that all the gods who appear to be many are only one, but although I know this, out of all those gods my mind will only desire and flow towards Siva-Ramana.

43. Irrespective of what I may gain through other people in any of the worlds, from now on I will not consent in my mind, even slightly, to enter into the state of slavery to anyone else except my Lord.

44. Without getting sidetracked, my mind remains firmly established in the Self, the supreme of supremes, as nothing but the Self.  As a result my love flows abundantly only towards the feet of my Lord that shine as supreme bliss.  I will not entertain any love towards anything else.

45.  My Guru, Siva-Ramana, dispelled the twin attachments of 'I' and 'mine', and by doing so abolished the affliction of birth, becoming my own Swarupa that shines as the light of consciousness. Now that I have taken up personal service to my Lord's feet of grace, there is no possibility that I will ever become slave to another.

46.  My Lord, who manifested in this world and ruled over me established in my heart the kingdom of infinitely spacious grace, enabling me to experience Swarupa, the divine silence whose very nature is happiness.  For what purpose I now resort to others uttering words of flattery?

47.  The excellent grace that my Lord granted to me, the lowest dog, was the supreme expanse of consciousness in which I could see no separate object to desire.
I will take refuge only in my Lord, my own Self, He who bestowed this lofty state on this dog. I will not run after anyone else, seeking anything else.

concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:


ஊழி யாய பாரி லோங்கு முயர்செல்வக்
காழி யீசன் கழலே பேணுஞ் சம்பந்தன்
றாழு மனத்தா லுரைத்த தமிழ்க ளிவைவல்லார்
வாழி நீங்கா வானோ ருலகின் மகிழ்வாரே.

Sambandhan, who cherishes with regard only the feet of Siva in Sirkazhi, having indestructible wealth, which floated above the floods of the deluge in this world which is destroyed at the end of the eon. Those who are able to say the Tamizh verses composed with a mind engrossed in God, will dwell in heaven which they will not leave.

Padigam on Sirkazhi completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


அஞ்சி யல்லல் மொழிந்து திரிவா ரமணாதர்
கஞ்சி காலை யுண்பார்க் கரியான் கலிக்காழித்
தஞ்ச மாய தலைவன் றன்னை நினைவார்கள்
துஞ்ச லில்லா நல்ல வுலகம் பெறுவாரே.


The god who is difficult to be recognized by the ignorant Jains, who speak distressing words behind the back, being afraid of saying them to the face and wander, and by the Buddhists who have their morning gruel, in Sirkazhi of great bustle.  Those who think of god as their refuge, will attain the good world of bliss which does not know destruction.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:


மாணா யுலகங் கொண்ட மாலு மலரோனுங்
காணா வண்ண மெரியாய் நிமிர்ந்தான் கலிக்காழிப்
பூணார் முலையாள் பங்கத் தானைப் புகழ்ந்தேத்திக்
கோணா நெஞ்ச முடையார்க் கில்லைக் குற்றமே.

Vishnu who received the world as a gift in the form of a bachelor (from Mahabali) and the Brahma, seated in the (lotus) flower, to them He who shot up as a column of fire so as not to be seen (by them) praising and worshipping the god who has on one half a lady who wears ornaments on her breasts. There will be no pain for those whose minds do not deviate from the path of virtue.

Verse  8:

அரக்கன் முடிதோள் நெரிய வடர்த்தா னடியார்க்குக்
கரக்க கில்லா தருள்செய் பெருமான் கலிக்காழிப்
பரக்கும் புகழான் றன்னை யேத்திப் பணிவார்மேற்
பெருக்கு மின்பந் துன்ப மான பிணிபோமே.

The God who pressed down to crush the heads and shoulders of demon (Raavaṇaṉ) and who grants his grace to his devotees without being able to conceal it, in Sirkazhi of great bustle, happiness will increase for people who praise and worship him whose fame spreads everywhere. Diseases which are the causes for sufferings will vanish.

Verse  7:

புயலார் பூமி நாம மோதிப் புகழ்மல்கக்
கயலார் கண்ணார் பண்ணா ரொலிசெய் கலிக்காழிப்
பயில்வான் றன்னைப் பத்தி யாரத் தொழுதேத்த
முயல்வார் தம்மேல் வெம்மைக் கூற்ற முடுகாதே.

Having repeated the names of God in the world fed by rain, in Sirkazhi, of great bustle where the ladies whose eyes are comparable to the carp fish produce the sound of music to spread the fame of god, on those who try to worship and praise the god who is permanent so that their devotion may become satisfactory, the cruel god of death will not hasten (to snatch their lives).

Verse  6:

மந்த மருவும் பொழிலி லெழிலார் மதுவுண்டு

சிந்தை செய்வார் செம்மை நீங்கா திருப்பாரே.

Having drunk the sweet honey in the parks where the slow-moving southern breeze is staying, in Sirkazhi of great bustle where the bees having lines on them hum like music as they have come into contact with fragrance, those devotees who meditate upon god praising him, Most exalted one who bestows his grace, to remove all bondage, are those who stand firmly in the path of righteousness.

Verse  5:


பரிதி யியங்கும் பாரிற் சீரார் பணியாலே
கருதி விண்ணோர் மண்ணோர் விரும்புங் கலிக்காழிச்

கருதி யெழுமின் வழுவா வண்ணந் துயர்போமே.

மனைக்கே யேற வளஞ்செய் பவளம் வளர்முத்தங்

Verse  3:


வடிகொள் பொழிலின் மழலை வரிவண் டிசைசெய்யக்
கடிகொள் போதிற் றென்ற லணையுங் கலிக்காழி
முடிகொள் சடையாய் முதல்வா வென்று முயன்றேத்தி
அடிகை தொழுவார்க் கில்லை யல்ல லவலமே.


When the tender bees with lines on their bodies hum like music in the gardens which are maintained in perfect condition.  In Sirkazhi of great bustle where the balmy southern breeze comes in contact with the buds of fragrance just before they unfold their petals. Having praised with the aid of their virtue done in previous births the god as one who has dressed the matted locks as a crown! The first cause! (The origin of all things!) there will be no anxiety and suffering for those who worship his feet with their hands.

ஊரா ருவரிச் சங்கம் வங்கங் கொடுவந்து
காரா ரோதங் கரைமே லுயர்த்துங் கலிக்காழி

பேரா யிரமும் பிதற்றத் தீரும் பிணிதானே.

Sirkazhi:

Verse 1:


நலங்கொண் முத்து மணியும் அணியுந் திரளோதங்
கலங்கள் தன்னிற் கொண்டு கரைசேர் கலிக்காழி
வலங்கொண் மழுவொன் றுடையாய் விடையா யெனவேத்தி
அலங்கல் சூட்ட வல்லார்க் கடையா அருநோயே.


In Sirkazhi of great bustle where the ships that sail on the accumulated waves, reach the shore with beautiful pearls, other precious stones and ornaments. The one who possesses a victorious battle axe!  Praising one who has a bull the diseases of birth which cannot be cured by other means, will not reach those who can adorn the God with garlands.

No doubt it could be said that the whole rhythm and flow of ancestral existence, with its veneration of the sacred custom and its deep and abiding love of life, is a kind of 'religion' in itself, but without being explicitly called such. And that this 'religion' in itself,
but without being explicitly called such. And that this 'religion' is compatible, for some,
with all the great and enduring spiritual traditions that flourish in this world.  However, the tribal elders did not consider themselves in desperate need of a certain dogma or creed, since everything in existence is permeated with divine content and comprises a partial manifestation (Juzi) of an infinite reality, beyond the power of man to define,
fully understand and so to limit.  And they sometimes compared different religions to works of art and poetry, each one as complete and self contained as the most beautiful painting or the most sublime and instructive oral epic. The painter, they said was not meant to quarrel with the poet, love the poetry, but to follow his calling.
