Verse  11:

கண்புனல் விளைவயற் காழிக் கற்பகம்
நண்புண ரருமறை ஞான சம்பந்தன்
பண்பினர் பரவுபைஞ் ஞீலி பாடுவார்
உண்பின வுலகினி லோங்கி வாழ்வரே.

Jnana Sambandhan, who knows the abstruse Vedas, and has intimacy with Siva who can be compared to the divine tree, Kaṟpakam, born in Sirkazhi which has fields yielding paddy and which has water everywhere. He who sings the fame of Painjneeli, with his verses, which is praised by goodnatured people will live prosperously in this world which is the place for enjoying the fruits of action done in previous births

Padigam on Tirup Painjneeli completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


பீலியார் பெருமையும் பிடகர் நூன்மையும்
சாலியா தவர்களைச் சாதி யாததோர்
கோலியா வருவரை கூட்டி யெய்தபைஞ்
ஞீலியான் கழலடி நினைந்து வாழ்மினே.

The greatness of Jains who have a collection of peacock's feathers, the subject-matter of the Buddhist's Tripiṭakam.  As the Buddhists follows the three Pitakams, they are called Pitakar.  People of this world!  Spend your lives remembering the feet wearing armor of the god in Painjneeli,  who shot an arrow bending a mountain difficult to be lent and which could not be achieved by those two who achieved nothing.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:

நீருடைப் போதுறை வானு மாலுமாய்ச்
சீருடைக் கழலடி சென்னி காண்கிலர்
பாருடைக் கடவுள்பைஞ் ஞீலி மேவிய
தாருடைக் கொன்றையந் தலைவர் தன்மையே.

Brahma, who dwells in the flower which grows in water, and Vishnu could not find out the head, and feet wearing armor. The first two lines are எதிர் நிரல் நிறை i.e., reversed sequence.  A syntactical arrangement of a series of predicates in an order which is the reverse of that in which their respective nominatives stand the god who has the world as his possession these are the nature of the master who wears a garland of Koṉṟai and who is in Painjneeli.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:


தொத்தின தோள்முடி யுடைய வன்றலை
பத்தினை நெரித்தபைஞ் ஞீலி மேவலான்
முத்தினை முறுவல்செய் தாளொர் பாகமாப்
பொத்தினன் திருந்தடி பொருந்தி வாழ்மினே.

Siva who is in Painjneeli, and who crushed the ten heads of the one who had a bunch of shoulders and crowns, Ravanan.  People of this world! Lead your life approaching the flawless feet of Siva, who embraced the lady who has pearls as her teeth on one half.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:


தூயவன் தூயவெண் ணீறு மேனிமேல்
பாயவன் பாயபைஞ் ஞீலி கோயிலா
மேயவன் வேய்புரை தோளி பாகமா
ஏயவ னெனைச்செயுந் தன்மை யென்கொலோ.

Siva is pure, who spread on his body pure white sacred ash who is in extensive Painjneeli, as his temple. He who is united with a lady whose shoulders are like bamboos, as a half. How wonderful is his nature of transforming me, a human being, into Siva!

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:


விடையுடைக் கொடிவல னேந்தி வெண்மழுப்
படையுடைக் கடவுள்பைஞ் ஞீலி மேவலான்
துடியிடைக் கலையல்கு லாளோர் பாகமாச்
சடையிடைப் புனல்வைத்த சதுர னல்லனே.


Siva who is Painjneeli, the god who has a white battle-axe, and who holds on the right side a banner on which the bull is drawn, is he not a clever person who placed water on his matted locks, when there was already a lady who wear a cloth on her waist and which is as slender as the center of a drum tapering towards the middle portion?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:


விழியிலா நகுதலை விளங்கி ளம்பிறை
சுழியிலார் வருபுனற் சூழல் தாங்கினான்
பழியிலார் பரவுபைஞ் ஞீலி பாடலான்
கிழியிலார் கேண்மையைக் கெடுக்க லாகுமே.

Siva who bore on his coiled matted locks, laughing skull without eyes, shining young crescent moon, and water with eddies. Is it possible to destroy he intimacy of those who have as the bag containing money, Siva who stays singing in Painjneeli, which is praised by blemish-less devotees?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:


கோடல்கள் புறவணி கொல்லை முல்லைமேல்
பாடல்வண் டிசைமுரல் பயில்பைஞ் ஞீலியார்
பேடல ராணலர் பெண்ணு மல்லதோர்
ஆடலை யுகந்தவெம் மடிக ளல்லரே.

Siva in Painjneeli, where humming bees buzz without ceasing on the Arabian jasmine flowers in the woods adjoining the forest region which are made beautiful by the white species of Malabar glory lilies.  Is not our deity who felt glad to dance, and who is neither hermaphrodite, nor male nor female.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  3:


அஞ்சுரும் பணிமல ரமுத மாந்தித்தேன்
பஞ்சுரம் பயிற்றுபைஞ் ஞீலி மேவலான்
வெஞ்சுரந் தனிலுமை வெருவ வந்ததோர்
குஞ்சரம் படவுரி போர்த்த கொள்கையே.

Siva who is in Painjneeli, where the beautiful Kurumpu having drunk the honey which is equal to nectar, found in flowers, teach the bees, called honey, the melody of Pa?churam, what is the idea in covering himself with a skin killing the elephant which came in the hot forest, to make Uma trembles?

Verse 2:


மருவிலார் திரிபுர மெரிய மால்வரை
பருவிலாக் குனித்தபைஞ் ஞீலி மேவலான்
உருவிலான் பெருமையை யுளங்கொ ளாதவத்
திருவிலா ரவர்களைத் தெருட்ட லாகுமே.

Siva who is staying in Painjneeli, bent as a big bow the big mountain, to burn the three cities of the enemies. He has no form of his own except what the devotees meditate upon. Is it possible to convince those who have not the good fortune to grasp in their minds his greatness?


Arunachala Siva.

Tirup Painjneeli:

Verse  1:

ஆரிடம் பாடில ரடிகள் காடலால்
ஓரிடங் குறைவில ருடையர் கோவணம்
நீரிடஞ் சடைவிடை யூர்தி நித்தலும்
பாரிடம் பணிசெயும் பயில்பைஞ் ஞீலியே.

God sang the Vēdas which he revealed to the sages has nothing wanting in abode except the cremation-ground. He has a loin-cloth as his dress, matted lociks, is the place of the water Ganga.  The bull is his vehicle, the Bhutas do service to him daily his place of stay is Painjneeli.

Presumably all the devotees who read this editorial have also experienced the pull, the magnetic attraction of Arunachala that makes all other ways of spending one's time but a pale imitation of reality. Arunachala is a hard rock upon which we can beat our head at times, but its sweetness is like no other.

Surrendering to Arunachala is not the same as giving up anything intentionally.  Arunachala puts the world in a perspective and makes us realize what is important and what is not.  It means accepting and embracing our connection with something far greater than ourselves.  What we are surrendering is our small conception of who we are and acknowledging a transcendental power that can take us beyond our addictive thoughts which come round again and again, but which we mindlessly hold on to for fear of being left with nothing.  It can be a terrifying process but the Guru is always there.

Trust is required if the power of grace is to find fulfillment in us.  Bhagavan's Grace is ever available, but for it to enter us we must have faith in the process, because it is not always smooth till our negative habits or Vasanas are cleansed.  Trust means being open to new possibilities that we have not yet been capable of conceiving by our           
own volition. Trust means opening up to a higher power, not in a thoughtless way, but with due consideration, patience and humility. Surrender does not mean sitting there like a stuffed doll expecting the heavens to open up.  It demands our total attention and active consent.  Like the silent chanting of a mantra the attitude of surrender has to become as natural as rhythmic breathing if it is to have an effect.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  172:

For those who perform worship to the rising sun, the sun's light shines, effacing all that is within and all that is without.  Similarly, is not renunciation to remain free of all association, as when one sees a devoted wife offer herself up on the funeral pyre?

Verse 173:

(The most ripe devotees) are like a bell without a clapper, which makes no sound even when you shake it.  It will be hard indeed (for those of lesser attainment) to remain in that state.  (For them) it will be like measuring with a grain measure, and throwing out, so that they are destroyed, all those unreal movements of consciousness that have (in the past) manifested and grown up (within them).

The commentary by TCS makes it clear that two grades of seekers are being referred to in this verse.  In the first part, those who possess the highest level of ripeness, Tivirataram, are compared to a bell without a clapper.  Their practice is effortless, since discriminating awareness cannot arise in a consciousness that is entirely still,
there being no trace of desire to cause movement in it, just as no sound can come from a bell without a clapper.  The consciousness of a renunciant who is unaffected by
desire will not be disturbed, however much it is assailed by the mind and senses.  It is therefore compared to an 'umai mani' - a dumb bell, a bell which can make no noise even when it is shaken because it does not have a clapper inside it.

The other grades of seeker, in whom the discriminating state, but they may on occasion do so, employing various forms of spiritual practice, in which they recognize the false with the aid of the divine grace, earned through the practice and reject it each time it arises. A 'marakkal' is a grain measure equivalent to eight 'padi' 400 cubic inches.  The point being made seems to be that, whilst, for advanced seeker, no effort
will be required to abide as the Self, those of lesser attainment will need to be extremely vigilant, rejecting the onslaught of the world on the mind and sense repeatedly as it arises, just as, when measuring a heap of grain, the same measure is filled emptied out, then filled again many, many times.

Contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:

புரமெரி செய்தவர் பூந்த ராய்நகர்ப்
பரமலி குழலுமை நங்கை பங்கரைப்
பரவிய பந்தன்மெய்ப் பாடல் வல்லவர்
சிரமலி சிவகதி சேர்தல் திண்ணமே.

The God who burnt the three cities, on him who has Uma, the lady of distinction who has the weight of tresses of hair, and residing in the city of Pūntarāy, those capable of reciting the truthful verses composed by Jnana Sambandhan, praising the god, it is very definite that they will attain salvation which is as eminent as the head is to the body. (Even in the 11th verse the incident of destruction of the three cities is mentioned.)

Padigam on Tirup Puntarai completed.

Verse  10:


முத்தர வசுரர்கண் மொய்த்த முப்புரம்
அத்தகு மழலிடை வீட்டி னாரமண்
புத்தரு மறிவொணாப் பூந்த ராய்நகர்க்
கொத்தணி குழலுமை கூறர் காண்மினே.

The God destroyed the three cities which was crowded round by the three classes of demons, to be engulfed by that great fire, is the god who has as his half Uma, who adorns on her tresses of hair bunches of flowers, resides in the city of Pūntarāy and who could not be comprehended by the Jains and Buddhists.

Arunachala Siva.
