Verse  4:

ஆதியா னண்ட வாணர்க் கருள்நல்கு
நீதி யானென்றும் நின்மல னேயென்றும்
சோதி யானென்றுஞ் சோற்றுத் துறையர்க்கே
வாதி யாய்ப்பணி செய்மட நெஞ்சமே.

The primordial Siva, praising him as having the nature of bestowing his grace to those who live in heaven, the spotless god and as the effulgent light, do service only to Siva in Chotṟuttuṟai without indulging in fruitless discussions.

Arunachala Siva.

932
Verse 3:

ஒட்டி நின்ற உடலுறு நோய்வினை
கட்டி நின்ற கழிந்தவை போயறத்
தொட்டு நின்றுமச் சோற்றுத் துறையர்க்கே
பட்டி யாப்பணி செய்மட நெஞ்சமே.

See 2nd verse. The diseases that are united with the body and the Karmas that bind the soul to leave you and become destroyed, do service as an irredeemable slave, to that famous Siva in Chōtṟuttuṟai touching his feet by your mind, thinking of his feet in your mind. 

Arunachala Siva.

Today is Punarvasu day in the month of Chaitra, the star on which Sri Rama was
born.  Sri Bhagavan also was born on the Punarvasu star day in the month of Dhanus.

Today the Asramam is celebrating Punarvasu star day and also Sri Rama's birth day.

I am giving a few verses of Murugnar under the title of Punarsu Vannam:

   
Now I am  giving two beautiful verses from Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, Tirupadam kaNda thiRan: The benefit of seeing the divine feet of Sri Bhagavan:

Seeing the Sacred Feet:


406.

Lord whose star is Ardhra, Master of Vedas,
Who brought as bright experience to my heart
The truth the Ancient taught, he made me
His own out of sheer kindness. This
Quick, mercurial magic, this transforming
Glory manifest in broad daylight, I witnessed!

(Tamizh original starts as -  Adiraiyin naLanai anubhavama vedanta....)

410.

I know and I, beside myself,
Bowed low, and worshipped what I saw;
The Plane of Siva, which is Pure
Blissful Awareness sweet to taste,
The Guru's Plane, which with the wealth
Of Self enriches all beholders,
The all transcending Hill of radiance
Beyond the reach of human speech, I witnessed !

(Tamizh verse starts as - parisevakum pahara voNNap paramjyoti parup padhathai...)

411.

The highest heaven of pure Awareness
From which there is no return,
The rare beatitude extolled
By the ultimate sacred word as far
Beyond thought or rich of dark, deluded
Mind, Kaivalya grand, the state
Of Brahman, this, even this I witnessed!

(Tamizh verse starts as - tirumbudhal illatha param dhama oLich chiRparamAha....)

****

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:

முத்தி யாக வொருதவஞ் செய்திலை
அத்தி யாலடி யார்க்கொன் றளித்திலை
தொத்து நின்றலர் சோற்றுத் துறையர்க்கே
பத்தி யாய்ப்பணி செய்மட நெஞ்சமே.

Ignorant mind! You have not done even a little of penance to attain salvation.
You have not given to Siva's devotees anything with love.  Do service at least hereafter with piety only to Siva in Chōtṟutuṟai, where in the gardens bunches of flowers blossom in all seasons.

Arunachala Siva.

935
Tiruch Chotrutturai:

Verse  1:

கொல்லை யேற்றினர் கோளர வத்தினர்
தில்லைச் சிற்றம் பலத்துறை செல்வனார்
தொல்லை யூழியர் சோற்றுத் துறையர்க்கே
வல்லை யாய்ப்பணி செய்மட நெஞ்சமே.

Ignorant mind  Siva, who has a bull that lives in the forest region, he has a cobra which is capable of killing. He is the god who dwells in Chitrambalam, Tillai, who has seen many eons, do service to Siva himself in Chōtṟuttuṟai, possessing the capacity to do it.

Arunachala Siva.

936
Verse  10:


துடித்த தோள்வலி வாளரக் கன்தனைப்
பிடித்த கைஞ்ஞெரிந் துற்றன கண்ணெலாம்
பொடிக்க வூன்றிய பூந்துருத் திந்நகர்ப்
படிகொள் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.


The hands of the demon, famous in sword-fight and strength of his shoulders which were agitating to do some mischief and which held the mountain, we stay under the lotus-red feet, which were set on this earth, and were fixed firmly to make all the eyes to shed tears in drops. 

Padigam on Tirup  Punturutti completed.


Arunachala Siva.

937
Verse  9:


செதுக றாமனத் தார்புறங் கூறினும்
கொதுக றாக்கண்ணி னோன்பிகள் கூறினும்
பொதுவி னாயகன் பூந்துருத் திந்நகர்க்
கதிபன் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.


Though people from whose minds evil thoughts never leave, indulge in back biting.
and though the ascetics from whose eyes secretion does not stop and on which mosquitoes settle, may try to slander the master of the five dancing-halls, (The five dancing halls are 1 Tiru Valankadu 2 Tillai Chitramparam 3 Madurai 4 Tirunelvēli 5 Kutralam.) we stay under the lotus-red feet of the Lord of the city of Pūnturutti.

Arunachala Siva.




938
Verse  8:

அதிரர் தேவ ரியக்கர் விச் சாதரர்
கருத நின்றவர் காண்பரி தாயினான்
பொருத நீர்வரு பூந்துருத் திந்நகர்ச்
சதுரன் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.


Siva who could not been by Brahma and Vishnu, who are considered as the chief by the celestial beings, who talk in a loud voice, Yakshar, and Vichatharar, we stay under the lotus-red feet of the able god in the city of Pūnturutti where water which dashes against the banks, flows. 

Arunachaa Siva.

939
Verse 7:

ஒருத்த னாயுல கேழுந் தொழநின்று

பொருத்த னாகிலும் பூந்துருத் திந்நகர்த்
திருத்தன் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.

Being without equal fit to be worshiped by the seven worlds, though he fixed on his head a bulky cobra, crescent moon as white as milk, and Ganga, we stay under the lotus-red feet of the holy god in the beautiful city of Pūntūṟutti.


Arunachala Siva.

940
Verse  6:

வல்லம் பேசி வலிசெய்மூன் றூரினைக்

செல்வன் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.


Speaking harsh words, Siva destroyed and talking the three cities which committed cruel acts, with a cruel arrow, thinking to kill them, we stay under the lotus-red feet of Siva in the city of Pūntūṟutti, though he speaks words of abuse.

செம்பொ னேயொக்கும் மேனியன் தேசத்தில்

நம்பன் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.

Though he may be in the earth and in heaven along with the celestial beings, Siva who dwells in the city of Pūnturutti, which has gold and other brilliant wealth, and who has a body as glittering as superior gold itself, we stay under the lotus-red feet of that Siva.

Verse  4:

மூவ னாய்முத லாயிவ் வுலகெலாம்

தேவன் சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.

Being the three gods, Brahma,, Vishnu and Rudran, and being their chief and protector of all, he killed the terrible god of death.  The master of the earth, chief who is seated in the heart which is like a lotus flower, we stay, under the lotus-red feet of the god in the city of Pūnturutti. 

Arunachala Siva.

Sri B.V. Narasimhaswami, author of Self Realization, has given a number of
similarities between Sri Rama and Sri Ramana. 

The most important is their sticking to the truth.

Truth is Sri Rama and truth is Sri Ramana.

Bhagavan  calls it as ulla- porul, that is, the only true Substance.  One can see it
in Ulladu Narpadu. 

Arunachala Siva.

Sri Rama Navami - 2019:


* * * The Greatness of "Rama" Japa * * *

A devotee asked,
?Swami, what is the easiest way to attain moksha??

Bhagavan Sri Ramana said with a smile,
?As and when the mind goes astray,
it should be turned inward and made to steady
itself in the thought of the Self.
That is the only way.?

Another devotee said,
?To do so, the repeating of the name of Rama is good, is it not??

?Certainly, it is good,? said Bhagavan Sri Ramana .

?What could be better?

The greatness of the japa
of the name of Rama is extraordinary.

In the story of Namadeva he is reported to
have told one devotee,
?If you want to know the greatness of the name of Rama
you must first know what your own name is,
what your real nature (swarupa) is,
who you are and how you were born.
Unless you know your own origin,
you will not know your name!?

This idea is found in the Abhangas
of Namadeva written in Marathi language and
in the Malayalam Adhyatma Ramayana.?

Thereupon Bhagavan Sri Ramana related a story from the latter.

IT IS STATED in that book that
when Anjaneya ( Lord Hanuman) went in search of Sita,
he seated himself opposite to Ravana in the Darbar Hall
on a high pedestal and fearlessly spoke to him thus:

?Oh Ravana,
I give you a teaching (upadesa) for attaining liberation (moksha).
Please listen to me carefully.
It is certain that the Self (Atma) gets purified
by intense devotion to Hari,
who is in the lotus of the Heart at all times.
The ego gets destroyed and
then the sin gets destroyed.
Afterwards, in its place,
the knowledge of the transcendent Self emerges.
With a pure mind and with the Bliss (Ananda)
generated by a firm knowledge of the Self,
the two letters ?Ra? ?Ma?
which are like mantras,
will repeat themselves within you automatically.
What more is required for a person
who has this knowledge,
however little it might be ?
Hence worship the lotus feet of Vishnu,
which will remove all worldly fears,
which are dear to all devotees and
which shine as brightly as the light of a crore of Suns.
Give up the ignorance of your mind?.

This has been mentioned in two or three slokas in the Sanskrit Adhyatma Ramayanam but not as elaborately as
in the Malayalam text.

Is the greatness of the name of Rama ordinary?

~ from Spiritual Stories as told by Ramana Maharshi book

Verse  3:


மாதி னைமதித் தானொரு பாகமாக்
காத லாற்கரந் தான்சடைக் கங்கையைப்
பூத நாயகன் பூந்துருத் திந்நகர்க்
காதி சேவடிக் கீழ்நா மிருப்பதே.

Siva kept a lady on one half, esteeming her highly, he concealed Ganga in his matted locks, out of love towards living beings. The master of all living beings, we stay under the lotus-red feet of the primordial Siva, who dwells in the city of Pūnturutti.

Arunachala Siva.
