Verse  75:

எல்லையிலா மறைமுதல்மெய்
    யுடன்எடுத்த எழுதுமறை
மல்லல்நெடுந் தமிழாலிம்
    மாநிலத்தோர்க் குரைசிறப்பப்
பல்லுயிருங் களிகூரத்
    தம்பாடல் பரமர்பால்
செல்லுமுறை பெறுவதற்குத்
    திருச்செவியைச் சிறப்பித்து.



By his Tamizh rich and sweet and which indeed
Is the indited Veda,
For people on earth to attain to scriptural good,
For innumerable lives, to rejoice,
And for his hymn to course its way to the Lord,
Invoking the Ear Divine, he caused
His hymn begin with the first letter
Of the boundless Vedas married to a consonant.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  74:


விண்ணிறைந்த பெருகொளியால்
    விளங்குமழ விடைமேலே
பண்ணிறைந்த அருமறைகள்
    பணிந்தேத்தப் பாவையுடன்
எண்ணிறைந்த கருணையினால்
    நின்றாரை எதிர்காட்டி
உண்ணிறைந்து பொழிந்தெழுந்த
    உயர்ஞானத் திருமொழியால்.


At the Lord of Tonipuram of ever-abounding grace
And His Consort-- hailed by the rare and tuneful Vedas--,
Who were seated on the ever-young Bull that stood
In the heavens bathed in the soaring and immense light
Of wisdom; at Him he pointed, and began to hail
Him with words of supreme wisdom
Which gushed forth from within.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  73:


எச்சில்மயங் கிடவுனக்கீ
    திட்டாரைக் காட்டென்று
கைச்சிறியது ஒருமாறு
    கொண்டோச்சக் காலெடுத்தே
அச்சிறிய பெருந்தகையார்
    ஆனந்தக் கண்துளிபெய்
துச்சியின் மேல் எடுத்தருளும்
    ஒருதிருக்கை விரற்சுட்டி.



He took a little stick and flourishing it said:
"Show me the one who gave you this
That will attract jettatura."
Eyes suffused with rapturous tears,
The Little-One-Great danced in joy
And pointed with a finger of his hand,
Uplifted above his head,   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  72:

சீர்மறையோர் சிவபாத
    இருதயரும் சிறுபொழுதில்
நீர்மருவித் தாஞ்செய்யும்
    நியமங்கள் முடித்தேறிப்
பேருணர்விற் பொலிகின்ற
    பிள்ளையார் தமைநோக்கி
யார்அளித்த பாலடிசில்
    உண்டதுநீ எனவெகுளா.   



After a while, Sivapaada Hridaya, the holy Brahmin,
Duly completing the rites, plunged as he was in water,
Ascended the steps and came to the bank.
Beholding the divine child-- glowing with
The bliss of splendor--, he questioned him thus,
In anger: "Whose milk have you taken?"

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  71:


எப்பொருளும் ஆக்குவான்
    ஈசநே எனுமுணர்வும்
அப்பொருள்தான் ஆளுடையார்
    அடியார்கள் எனுமறிவும்
இப்படியா லிதுவன்றித்
    தம்மிசைவு கொண்டியலும்
துப்புரவில் லார்துணிவு
    துகளாகச் சூழந்தெழுந்தார்.   


"It is the Lord-God who governs every ens.
One must be poised in this consciousness;
The fruit of this consciousness is the adoration
Of the Lord, the Guru and the Servitors;
This indeed is the way of life."
Some however act contrary, self-willed;
These impure ones espouse faiths that are false.
So, up he rose to smite these faiths to smithereens.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  70:


சிவனடியே சிந்திக்குந்
    திருப்பெருகு சிவஞானம்
பவமதனை யறமாற்றும்
    பாங்கினில்ஓங் கியஞானம்
உவமையிலாக் கலைஞானம்
    உணர்வரிய மெய்ஞ்ஞானம்
தவமுதல்வர் சம்பந்தர்
    தாம்உணர்ந்தார் அந்நிலையில்.   



Sivajnanam of ever-increasing divinity
Which is for ever linked to the feet of Siva,
The lofty knowledge poised in clarity
That completely does away with transmigration,
Peerless knowledge of the Gospels and the scriptures
And the knowledge of incarnate Truth, rare to realize:
All these in that hour of beatitude
Came to be established in the consciousness
Of Sambandhar, the first among the tapawis.   


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  69:

யாவருக்குந் தந்தைதாய்
    எனுமிவர்இப் படியளித்தார்
ஆவதனா லாளுடைய
    பிள்ளையா ராய்அகில
தேவருக்கும் முனிவருக்குந்
    தெரிவரிய பொருளாகும்
தாவில்தனிச் சிவஞான
    சம்பந்த ராயினார்.   



As he was thus blessed by the Lord--"The-Parents-of-all"--,
He became "Aalutaiya Pillaiyaar";
Endowed with Siva's own Gnosis,
Unknowable to even the celestial beings and saints alike;
Eke did he become Siva Jnana Sambandhar,
The unique and flawless.   

Arunachala Siva.

Uma, the Mother, mixed the ineffable Wisdom,
Siva's own Gnosis, with the ambrosial milk,
Wiped the tears of the child that stood before Her,
Gave him the cup of gold and bade him thus:
"Take it." It was thus, even thus,
The All-Merciful Lord pacified the crying child.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse 67:


ஆரணமும் உலகேழும்
    ஈன்றருளி அனைத்தினுக்கும்
காரணமாய் வளம்பெருகு
    கருணைதிரு வடிவான
சீரணங்கு சிவபெருமான்
    அருளுதலும் சென்றணைந்து
வாரிணங்கு திருமுலைப்பால்
    வள்ளத்துக் கறந்தருளி.   


The Mother of the seven worlds and the Vedas--,
The primal Source of everything--,
Whose beauteous form is ever-crescent mercy,
When thus bidden by Lord Siva, approached the child
And embraced him, the while pouring the milk
Of Her divine breasts into a cup.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 66:


அழுகின்ற பிள்ளையார்
    தமைநோக்கி அருட்கருணை
எழுகின்ற திருவுள்ளத்

தொழுகின்ற மலைக்கொடியைப்
    பார்த்தருளித் துணைமுலைகள்
பொழிகின்ற பாலடிசில்
    பொன்வள்ளத் தூட்டென்ன.



Beholding the crying the child, the merciful Lord
Of gracious compassion, addressed the liana-like
Daughter of Himavant, adored in every world, thus:
"Feed this child from a cup of gold
With the ambrosial milk of thy twin breasts."   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  65:



திருமறைநூல் வேதியர்க்கும்
    தேவியர்க்கும் தாங்கொடுத்த
பெருகுவரம் நினைந்தோதான்
    தம்பெருமைக் கழல்பேணும்
ஒருநெறியில் வருஞானங்
    கொடுப்பதனுக் குடனிருந்த
அருமறையா ளுடையவளை
    அளித்தருள அருள்செய்வார்.



Mindful of the ever-rich boon He bestowed
On the Brahmin well-versed in the Vedas, and his wife,
And to endow the child with the knowledge to remain
Ever-poised in the unique and integral worship
Of His glorious feet, He lovingly bade
His inseparable Consort, the Mother of the Gospels,
To grace the divine child.   

Arunachala Siva.

Himavan is the king of Himachala and his wife is Mena Devi. Their only darling daughter is Uma.
Once Brahma and Vishnu came to Himavan and told him to give his daughter in wedding
to Siva.  Siva came to see Uma and was happy and indicated his liking to marry Uma.  Himavan
became thoughtful.  This guy has not mother and father.  And his caste is not even known to us.  We do not know his gothra, lineage.  How can we give our daughter?  Mena Devi said:  It does not matter.  If he has no mother and father, it is in a way good, for Uma will not suffer at the hands of a mother
in law or a sister in law!

The wedding took place in a grand manner.  Kubera came as the best-man for Siva.  Brahma and Saraswati, and Vishnu and Lakshmi attended the wedding and gave the couple a lot of costly gifts. 

Finally Siva took leave and left with Uma.  He said that they are going for honey-moon to Tiruvannamalai.
"It is a very cool place here.  Annamalai is quite hot.  So, for a change, we propose to go to Tiruvannamalai
for honey-moon. 

Himavan exclaimed:  "Oh!  To Annamalai?"

Siva said:  "Yes, to Annamalai.  I own that Hill."

Himavan became very happy.  O, our son-in-law is also the owner of a Hill.  Then, I should say that he
belongs to our caste! He and Mena Devi happily saw the couple off to Tiruvannamalai!

One girl to another:-

His temple is the cremation ground!
He wears the tiger skin as a nice apparel.
He has no mother, no father, He is all alone...
(What is the glory of your Siva?)

The other girl answers:

What if, He has no mother or father.
What if, He is all alone, a destitute.
You don't know His valor, if He gets angry,
All the worlds will burn to gravel and dust!

After the visit with Ganapati Sastri, I went again to see the Master in the Cave.  The Master smiled
at me and asked one most private question about my life.  I immediately understood that with His
very look, He would read anyone like an open book!

He then gave me some fruits, cooked rice and ghee.  He also gave me a spoon-like implement made out of coconut shell!  He then gave me some milk out of desiccated coconut.  As I was eating,
He described me very important details of my past life.  He has seen hundreds of people in His life.
But I understood that with His Wisdom-insight, He reads every one like an encyclopedia.

I sat with Him for over three hours and He talked to me many many things. 

I realized that He is a complete Master of Wisdom.

Today is the liberation day of Kazharchinga Nayanar.    The story of Kazharchinga Nayanar has already
been given by me when I covered the stories of 63 Saiva Saints. The forum members may kindly look
for that.

Day of liberation -  Vaikasi month, Bharani star day.

You entered into me,
the addle-pated,
enslaved me And endowed me with salvific wisdom.
Lo,
He is my Father Who caused all my senses to pursue the true path;
He snapped my bondage.
You act contrariwise,
Notwithstanding His gift of sweet graces which will never part from me.
O cadaverous heart !
You have debased me by your utter falsity;
You have so spoiled me that I stand ruined.

Arunachala Siva.
