Verse  3:

சீர்கொண்ட பாடலீர் செங்கண்வெள்ளே றூர்தியீர்
நீர்கொண்டும் பூக்கொண்டு நீங்காத்தொண்டர் நின்றேத்தத்
தார்கொண்ட நூன்மார்பர் தக்கோர்வாழுந் தலைச்சங்கை
ஏர்கொண்ட கோயிலே கோயிலாக விருந்தீரே.


You sing to the measure of time [You chant Sama Vedam which can be set to music.] You ride on a bull having red eyes. The devotees who carry water to bathe you and flowers to adorn you and who never leave you, praise you standing. You occupied the beautiful temple in Thalai Chankai where worthy Brahmins who wear the sacred thread and a garland (of lotus) live, as the temple fitting your greatness. [garland of lotus is the distinctive garland of brahmins;].

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 2:


துணிமல்கு கோவணமுந் தோலுங்காட்டித் தொண்டாண்டீர்
மணிமல்கு கண்டத்தீர் அண்டர்க்கெல்லா மாண்பானீர்
பிணிமல்கு நூன்மார்பர் பெரியோர்வாழுந் தலைச்சங்கை
அணிமல்கு கோயிலே கோயிலாக அமர்ந்தீரே.

You admitted me as your protege people, showing the skin and the loin-cloth which is torn from a big cloth. You have a neck which is full of blue color like the sapphire.
You have greatness which is above the greatness of the celestial beings.
You desired to stay in the very beautiful temple in Talai chaṅkai where great men who wear on their chest twisted sacred thread, as the temple fitting your greatness.

Arunachala Siva.

Tiru Thalai Changadu:

Verse  1:


நலச்சங்க வெண்குழையுந் தோடும்பெய்தோர் நால்வேதம்
சொலச்சங்கை யில்லாதீர் சுடுகாடல்லாற் கருதாதீர்
குலைச்செங்காய்ப் பைங்கமுகின் குளிர்கொள்சோலைக் குயிலாலும்
தலைச்சங்கைக் கோயிலே கோயிலாகத் தாழ்ந்தீரே.

Wearing a white and beautiful men's ear-ring made of conch and a women' ear-ring, You are above numbers when the Vēdas describe you, you do not think of any other place (for dancing) except the cremation ground).  You stayed in the temple at Thalai Chankai,  where Indian cuckoos sing in the cool gardens of tender areaca-palms which have put forth clusters of red fruit, as the temple fitting your greatness.

Arunachala Siva.

32. Many differences, a rare difference, total differences do not exist.  Brahman is bliss.
There is no doubt of this.  That Brahman am I.  There is no uncertainty about this.

33. The distinction such as Brahman, the distinctions such as the fourth state, difference such as the individual self, the cause of non distinction -- none of these has arisen, none of these, ever.

34.  The indication 'he is God' never, never indeed is.  If it were so, it can be expressed. As it does not, how can it be expressed?

35. In me there is never anything in the least such as 'the supreme', 'the extraordinary'. Vacillation and indeed the mind are non existent, verily non existent.
There is no doubt of this.

36. Be ever fulfilled thus alone and abiding without desire and with intellect subsided never even thinking 'I am Brahman, the all I am perfection.'

37.  'I am bliss. I am the choicest. I am Brahman' -- none of these exist ever.  Nor. 'I am the bliss of Brahman, the great bliss of the Self.'

38.  The great destroyer is never existent. The expression 'This is all', the misunderstanding 'This is not bliss' do not exist.

39.  All is Brahman. There is no doubt of this. That Brahman am I.  There is no doubt
of this.  The concepts of the ideal and its traits, the triad of seer, seen and seeing are completely non existent.

40. Endless non experience and many experiences, all are Brahman.  There is no doubt of this.  I am that Brahman, without doubt.

The question the direct devotees of Bhagavan asked was what do we have now that the physical body of Bhagavan has been laid reverently and with great sorrow into the earth? All those close to him were lost in disbelief that their rock of certainty and wisdom had apparently disappeared. It should be remembered that being in Bhagavan's Presence was not a grave affair where everyone sat around him in hushed, fearful silence.  Yes, there were times when he withdrew and everyone automatically kept quiet. And yes, during the chanting of Vedas in the morning and evening Bhagavan 'went' somewhere beyond the powers of anyone's mind to follow.  But otherwise, he was easily approachable.  His kindness and spontaneous, welcoming smile were immediately apparent to all who came to him with a sincere heart,  There are a few today who are alive and remember those cheerful times with a contented smile.

For most of us, all we have are historical facts and none of the joy of being in his company nor the poignancy of his physical departure.  What we do have today are the photographs, his published words and writings, the stories and the Asramam.  All these contain the possibility that could kindle a flame of inspiration in us.  Perhaps with one of these forms we feel ourselves for a moment whole and alive with the familiar but fleeting happiness of recognition.

Arunachala Siva.

We will strive for that home where we may rest content, fulfilled, secure and loved.
It rarely happens, perhaps because what we are convinced is the answer to our prayers
is actually a vision cobbled together of all our various fantasies.  Our true yearning is for home, but that longing becomes diffused and degraded until we know we want, but we are less sure of what we are less sure of what is that we want.

Life is defined  by movement.  Nothing stands still for long, even the food we love best if eaten continuously would become repulsive just our sense of heavenly peace would turn unutterably dull.  The wheel turns and it does so usually when we become complacent with our fate. Then we tend to be thrown off our hard won balance into turmoil by a new invasive and unavoidable element.  It just tales a sharp word, rude
manners or slothful ignorance by others to turn our heads inside out with indignation or uncontrollable anger.  Life is prodding to move on. So in this normal sense, home as we desire is not a physical place, it is a state of mind.  Who has not returned to a childhood home and not felt a stranger?  All that made it home is the feeling of comfort and security and that now only exists as a memory.

Is home then a person or an emotion or a thriving ideal?  If a person or perhaps a family, is it because it is familiar or is it somewhere special where we feel most at ease?  Or possibly where we are intensely alive and fulfilled?  If it is a person then does it matter where we physically are as long as the other person or persons are there in our hearts and minds?  But people age and die.  So that it is not permanent.

Verse  10:


கற்றமண ருற்றுலவு தேரருரை செய்த

செற்றவர் விருப்புறு திருப்புகலி யாமே.

Verse  9:

கோடலொடு கூன்மதி குலாயசடை தன்மேல்

தேடவுறை யுந்நகர் திருப்புகலி யாமே.
