Verse  143:


பிள்ளையார் அருள்செய்யப்
    பெருந்தவத்தாற் பெற்றெடுத்த
வள்ளலார் தாமும்உடன்
    செல்வதற்கு மனங்களிப்ப
வெள்ளிமால் வரையென்னத்
    திருத்தோணி வீற்றிருந்த
புள்ளிமா னுரியாரைத்
    தொழுதருளாற் புறப்பட்டார்.


When the godly child thus spake to his father,
The great patron whose tapas has gained
For him the divine child as his son,
Rejoiced in his mind as he was to accompany him,
They fared forth to the Ark-Temple
Like unto the argent and huge mountain,
To adore its Lord clad in deer-skin;
Hailing Him they departed with His leave.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  142:


சிரபுரத்தில் அமர்ந்தருளுந்
    திருஞான சம்பந்தர்
பரவுதிருத் தில்லைநடம்
    பயில்வாரைப் பணிந்தேத்த
விரவியெழும் பெருங்காதல்
    வெள்ளத்தை உள்ளத்தில்
தரஇசையுங் குறிப்பறியத்
    தவமுனிவர்க்கு அருள்செய்தார் .


Tirujnaana Sambandhar who abode at Sirapuram
Was goaded by a great and flooding love
To adore and hymn the Lord-Dancer
Of celebrated Thillai; he divined this to be
The divine wish of the Lord; of this he informed
His father, the saintly tapaswi.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  141:


மற்றதற்குப் பிள்ளையார்
    மனமகிழ்வுற் றிசைந்தருளப்
பெற்றவர்தாம் தம்பிரான்
    அருளிதுவே யெனப்பேணிச்
சொற்றமிழ்மா லையின்இசைகள்
    சுருதியாழ் முறைதொடுத்தே
அற்றைநாட் போலென்றும்
    அகலாநண் புடன்அமர்ந்தார்.   


He who was graced with the consent
Of the divine child, thought thus:
"This is surely the Lord's own grace."
From that day he played on his tuneful Yaazh
His divine decades which were garlands
Of Tamizh verse, and abode with him
As on that day, without parting,
Blessed with his friendship.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  140:


சிறியமறைக் களிறளித்த
    திருப்பதிக இசையாழின்
நெறியிலிடும் பெரும்பாணர்
    பின்னுநீர் அருள்செய்யும்
அறிவரிய திருப்பதிக
    இசையாழில் இட்டடியேன்
பிறிவின்றிச் சேவிக்கப்
    பெறவேண்டும் எனத்தொழுதார்.   

The great Paanar that on his Yaazh played
The divine decades of the divine child
Who knew all the Vedas and who was verily an elephant cub,
Addressing him, said: "Be pleased to bless me
To play on the Yaazh all the divine decades
You are to hymn in grace, hereafter;
May I never part from your holy company;
May I ever adore you." Thus he prayed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  139:


காழியார் தவப்பயனாம்
    கவுணியர்தம் தோன்றலார்
ஆழிவிட முண்டவர்தம்
    அடிபோற்றும் பதிகஇசை
யாழின்முறை மையின்இட்டே
    எவ்வுயிரு மகிழ்வித்தார்
ஏழிசையும் பணிகொண்ட
    நீலகண்ட யாழ்ப்பாணர்.   


He decades, sung by the scion of the Kauniya clan
That came to be born as the fruit of the tapas
Wrought by the residents of Kaazhi,
In praise of the feet of the Lord
Who ate the ocean's venom
Were played on the Yaazh by Neelakanta Yaazh-p-Paanar
Whom the seven-fold music obeyed; thus he gladdened
All the lives on earth.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  138:


பிள்ளையார் அருள்பெற்ற
    பெரும்பாணர் பிறையணிந்த
வெள்ளநீர்ச் சடையாரை
    அவர்மொழிந்த மெய்ப்பதிகம்
உள்ளபடி கேட்டலுமே
    யுருகுபெரு மகிழ்ச்சியராய்த்
தெள்ளமிர்தம் அருந்தினர்போற்
    சிந்தைகளிப் புறத்தொழுதார்.


The great Paanar who was blessed
By the divine child, heard the servitors sing
The truth-incarnate decades of the child
On the Lord who wears on His matted hair
The crescent and the Ganga; with a melting mind
He rejoiced and grew glad as though drunk
With great nectar; then he prayed ecstatically.


Arunachala Siva.

Bhagavan Ramana did not much recommend Raja Yoga marga, because this method is considered
tough and any mistake will result in negative consequences. The Kundalini Power is a double edged
sword and one has to be extremely cautious about it.  But Sri Sankara did recommend.  In case of
Kavyakanta Ganapati Sastri, he had this unbearable burning sensation in the crown when he was
practising in Tiruvottiyur and Bhagavan Ramana had to go in his subtle body skyward
and place His hand on Sastri's skull, to quell the heat and burning sensation. 

With an experienced teacher, the Raja Yoga is quite good. 


Arunachala Siva.

My first darshan of Sri Bhagavan was in May 1942, when I was twenty six years old.  Though I had been
to Chidambaram several times as a student pursuing my Bachelor of Science, I had not the opportunity
to see Bhagavan in spite of my desire after I knew of the Sage in 1935.

It was only after my marriage with Rukmani, daughter of Gridhalur Satya Narayana Rao, the brother of
Sambasiva Rao from Nellore, who were great devotees of Bhagavan, that my association with Him began.
It was also I feel, by the blessings of Bhagavan that our alliance was finalized as we had no horoscope  for
me and Rukmani's family were also strong believers in astrology.

The quite arresting very first darshan of Bhagavan clearly distinguished Him from all other saints and
sadhus I had seen before.  He seemed to live apart from the physical form and was quite detached from it.
His look had a remarkable spiritual charm that absorbed the attention of all with magnetic force.  When
He spoke, the words seemed to come out of an abyss. One could see immaculate purity and non attachment.
His movements were very refined, lofty and sacred.  In His vicinity one's mental distractions were over powered by a pervasive austere and potent calmness.

The unique bliss of His was directly experienced by all, that is, there was a blissful  atmosphere around
Bhagavan.  In the ecstasy of Grace one loses one's separate individuality and there remains  something
holy and all pervading which devoured one's personality!  This indeed is the Spirit of Arunachala which
swallows up the whole Universe by its gracious effulgence.

Arunachala Siva.

Today is the liberation day of Somachi Mara Nayanar.  He attained the feet of the Lord by doing
Soma Yagam, (with Sama Veda) for a number of days, with ardent bhakti towards Siva.
In course of time, he attained mukti by attaining the feet of the Lord Siva.

I have given the detailed account of Somachi Mara Nayanar in my posts on 63 Saiva Saints. 
The Forum members are requested to go through the same.


Day of Liberation; Valkasi Ayilyam star day.

(5.4):

காண லாம்பர மேகட்கி றந்ததோர்
வாணி லாம்பொரு ளேஇங்கொர் பார்ப்பெனப்
பாண னேன்படிற் றாக்கையை விட்டுனைப்
பூணு மாறறி யேன்புலன் போற்றியே.




O not visible supreme Ens !
O effulgent Being beyond The ken of sight !
Here I am like a fledgling;
I,
the base one,
foster my senses only;
I do not know The way to attain You,
giving up my deceitful body.

Arunachala Siva.

(5.3):


மேலை வானவ ரும்மறி யாததோர்
கோல மேயெனை ஆட்கொண்ட கூத்தனே
ஞால மேவிசும் பேஇவை வந்துபோம்
கால மேஉனை யென்றுகொல் காண்பதே.


O peerless Splendor unknowable unto The heavenly ones !
O Dancer that enslaved me !
O Earth,
O Sky and O Time in which these Appear and disappear !
When indeed will I behold You?

Verse 48.


48: சுடரும் கலைமதி துன்றும் சடைமுடிக் குன்றில் ஒன்றிப்
படரும் பரிமளப் பச்சைக் கொடியைப் பதித்து நெஞ்சில்
இடரும் தவிர்த்து இமைப்போது இருப்பார், பின்னும் எய்துவரோ-
குடரும் கொழுவும் குருதியும் தோயும் குரம்பையிலே.

ஏ அபிராமியே! பச்சைப் பரிமளக் கொடி நீயேயாகும். ஒளிரும் இளம் பிறையை, குன்றை ஒத்த சடாமுடியில் அணிந்திருக்கும் சிவபெருமானை இணைந்தவளே! உன்னையே நெஞ்சில் நினைந்து வழிபடும் யோகிகளூம், இமையாது கடுந்தவம் புரியும் ஞானிகளூம் மீண்டும் பிறப்பார்களோ? மாட்டார்கள்! ஏனென்றால் தோலும், குடலும், இரத்தமும், இறைச்சியும் கொண்ட இந்த மானிடப் பிறவியை விரும்பார், ஆதலின்!

O Abhirami!  You are the green tender plant.  You are the joined  with Siva who is wearing a crescent
moon on His hill like matted hairs. The Jnanis and Yogis who do continuous and hard  tapas,
contemplating on You, will not be born again. Because they do not like to take birth with a human body
full of flesh, blood, skin again in this world.

Arunachala Siva.

11.  The most confidential of all secrets was abridged and granted by Siva.  That which is spoken as
Self is non self only;  the mind (which speaks thus) is non self also.  The world too is non self.
Be certain that there is no non self.

12.  Be of the certitude of the absence of non self by rendering naught all forms of thought, by forsaking
all forms and by the conviction that Brahman alone is.

13.  By the non cognition of the mind, there is nothing to be thought of;  by the non cognition of the
body aging is not.  With the knowledge that Brahman alone is, be of the certitude that there is no
non self.I motion and by that of hands action there is none.  With the knowledge that Brahman alone
is real, n be of the certitude that there is non non self.

15.  In the absence of Brahma there is no world;  by the absence of that world there is no Hari.
As Brahman alone is real, be of the certitude that there is no non self.

16. Death is void in the absence of aging; worldly and Vedic matters are naught.  As there is
Brahman alone, be of the certitude that there is non non self.

17. Dharma (righteousness), purity, truth and fear are non existent.  As Brahman alone is, non
self is non existent.

18.  There is no pronunciation of syllables.  My consciousness is imperishable.  As Brahman alone is,
non self is non existent.

Arunachala Siva.

290.  Therein the Self shines by His own Light of Consciousness, as the Sole Reality, which is Bliss.
In that Supreme State there is no reality to shed light on Him, nor anything other that could shine
by His Light.

291. That consciousness-light, which is His Nature, neither rises nor sets, but is ever the same without
change.  It is by borrowing a minute particle of His Consciousness that the mind appears conscious.

292.  Disciples of non sages, fearing that in the Supreme State the Self will cease to be, wish to go
to some other celestial world, for the sake of eternal happiness.

293. As this world is unreal, so the other worlds also are unreal.  For the Sage who is in the Supreme
State, the Self is Himself the world, and hence that World is real in its own right.

294.  'What for do we need wealth or offspring when the Self is Himself the world?'  So thinking,
the sages, whose desires have all subsided, care not for action, nor for inaction.

295.  That Self, who is Consciousness, is alone real; the consciousness which has the world form is
ignorance (not true knowledge);  and since the world does not exist apart from that world-form-
consciousness, it is unreal.                     

296.  This Ignorance is like darkness; it cannot be said that it exists.  As darkness does not bear the
light so the Ignorance does not bear the Light of Right Awareness.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  137:


எண்ணருஞ்சீர்த் திருத்தோணி
    எம்பெருமான் கழல்பரவிப்
பண்ணமையா ழிசைகூடப்
    பெரும்பாணர் பாடியபின்
கண்ணுதலார் அருளினால்
    காழியர்கோன் கொடுபோந்து
நண்ணிஉறை யிடஞ்சமைத்து
    நல்விருந்து சிறந்தளிப்ப.   

When the great Paanar completed
The melodious playing of the Yaazh and singing,
Thus musically hailing the feet of the Lord
Enshrined in the Ark of boundless glory,
By the grace of the brow-eyed Lord
The Prince of Kaazhi took them to the abode
Arranged for their stay and feasted them
In great splendor.

Arunachala Siva.
