At the invitation of his brother, Siva Chidambaram,  Thayumanavar visited his ancestral home at Vedaranyam.
Here his relatives requested Thayumanavar to marry Mattuvar Kuzhali, a virtuous young girl whom
they had selected for him.  Thayumanavar then consulted his mentor and philosopher guide, Mouna Guru
who said that marriage was never an impediment to those pursued their spiritual goal with seriousness.
The guru therefore advised Thayumanavar to go ahead with his marriage.  Accordingly,the marriage of
Thayumanavar with Mattuvar Kuzhali was solemnized. He was blessed with a son who was named
Kanaka Sabapathi.   Unfortunately, soon after the child's birth his wife passed away.

Thayumanavar thereafter lived in seclusion, practicing self inquiry.  Once again he met his guru, Mouna
Guru Desikar, who reiterated his advice to observe silence. His Guru who had earlier declined declined
Thayumanavar's request for initiation, now in order of renunciants (sannyasa).       

Perhaps the guru, in his wisdom, had wanted Thayumanavar to pass through the stage of family
life (grihastha asrama) to fulfill some of his latent tendencies (vasanas), before he could progress in   
spiritual life.  Thayumanavar then embarked on a pilgrimage.  At Chidambaram, standing before
Lord Nataraja, he immersed himself in thoughts of God, marveling at His Grace, splendor and beauty.
He composed beautiful hymns in praise of Lord Nataraja:  'There is no greater treasure than Thy grace,
no greater power than Thou, no greater delight than Your vision.  Overwhelmed with devotion,
I become one with You.'

20.  Brahman alone is Being Consciousness Bliss,  Brahman alone.  Joy is Brahman everywhere
manifesting as the adorable.

21.  The individual exhibiting auspicious tendencies shines as Siva always.  The individual with sinful
traits remains to experience hell.

22. Brahman alone shines as senses, Brahman alone as the objects and the activity is only Brahman.
All is indeed Brahman alone.

23.  All joy is only Brahman.  Brahman alone is knowledge personified.  The operation of Maya is
said to be Brahman alone.

24. The process of sacrifice is Brahman alone.  The heart-space is Brahman alone.  The essence of liberation
is said to be Brahman only.  All is indeed  Brahman alone.   
25.  The pure and the impure are only Brahman.  The cause of all is Brahman alone.  The affairs of the
earth are Brahman alone.  All is indeed Brahman alone.

26.  The ever satisfied Self is Brahman alone.  All the days are Brahman only.  The silent Self of the beings
is Brahman only.  All is indeed Brahman alone.

Verse 1120:

திருத்தொண்டர் அங்குள்ளார்
    விடைகொள்ளச் சிவநேசர்
வருத்தம்அகன் றிடமதுர
    மொழியருளி விடைகொடுத்து
நிருத்தர்உறை பிறபதிகள்
    வணங்கிப்போய் நிறைகாதல்
அருத்தியொடும் திருவான்மி
    யூர்பணிய அணைவுற்றார்.

The devotees of that place took leave of him;
With sweet words he graced Sivanesar, dispelled
His distress and gave him leave to depart.
Adoring the many shrines of the Lord-Dancer on his way,
He neared Tiruvaanmiyur to adore the Lord there.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 1119:

தொழுதுபுறம் போந்தருளித்
    தொண்டர்குழாம் புடைசூழப்
பழுதில்புகழ்த் திருமயிலைப்
    பதியில்அமர்ந் தருளுநாள்
முழுதுலகுந் தருமிறைவர்
    முதல்தானம் பலஇறைஞ்ச
அழுதுலகை வாழ்வித்தார்
    அப்பதியின் மருங்ககல்வார்.

Having thus adored the Lord, he moved out
Acompanied with the devotees; he sojourned
In the flawless town of Tirumayilai; then he
That wept the world into deliverance, desiring
To adore the Lord, the Creator and Fosterer
Of all the worlds, in all His shrines
Of preeminence, departed from that town.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  1118:

தேவர்பிரான் அமர்ந்தருளும்
    திருக்கபா லீச்சரத்து
மேவியஞா னத்தலைவர்
    விரிஞ்சன்முதல் எவ்வுயிர்க்கும்
காவலனார் பெருங்கருணை
    கைதந்த படிபோற்றிப்
பாவலர்செந் தமிழ்பாடிப்
    பன்முறையும் பணிந்தெழுவார்.

The Lord of wisdom that moved into the temple
Tirukkapaaleeccharam where abides the Lord
Of the celestial beings, hailed the great mercy
Of the Lord-Protector of all lives inclusive of Brahma,
Hymned Him and prostrated before Him many a time.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 1117:

பான்மையால் வணிகரும் பாவை தன்மணம்
ஏனையோர்க் கிசைகிலேன் என்று கொண்டுபோய்
வானுயர் கன்னிமா டத்து வைத்தனர்
தேனமர் கோதையும் சிவத்தை மேவினாள்.

The pious and righteous merchant mused thus:
"I will not suffer to wed Poompaavai to any one else."
He took her to the sky-high Kanni-maatam;
She, the wearer of the garland, where chafers abide
Embedded in its flowers, reached Sivam
(in due time)

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 1116:

தெள்ளுநீ தியின்முறை கேட்ட சீர்கிளை
வெள்ளமும் வணிகரும் வேட்கை நீத்திடப்
பள்ளநீர்ச் செலவெனப் பரமர் கோயிலின்
உள்ளெழுந் தருளினார் உடைய பிள்ளையார்.

Sivanesar and his glorious and great kin that heard
The lucid exposition of righteous conduct, gave up
Their desire; fast like a down-flowing current
The godly child moved into the temple of the Supreme One.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  1115:

வணிகருஞ் சுற்றமும் மயங்கிப் பிள்ளையார்
அணிமல ரடியில்வீழ்ந் தரற்ற ஆங்கவர்
தணிவில்நீள் பெருந்துயர் தணிய வேதநூல்
துணிவினை யருள்செய்தார் தூய வாய்மையார்.

Hearing him the merchant and his kin
Stood bewildered; they fell at the feet of the godly
Child and cried; to pacify their great distress
He that was an incarnation of the Holy Truth
Graced them with the import of the Vedic injunctions.

Verse 1114:

மற்றவர் தமக்குவண் புகலி வாணர்நீர்
பெற்றபெண் விடத்தினால் வீந்த பின்னையான்
கற்றைவார் சடையவர் கருணை காண்வர
உற்பவிப் பித்தலால் உரைத காதென.

Thereupon the munificent lord of Sanbai spake to him
Thus; "Your daughter died of snake-bite;
By the grace of the Lord of dense matted hair
I have caused her to get reborn; so compliance
With your request is not possible.

Verse  1113:

பெருகிய அருள்பெறும் வணிகர் பிள்ளையார்
மருவுதா மரையடி வணங்கிப் போற்றிநின்
றருமையால் அடியனேன் பெற்ற பாவையைத்
திருமணம் புணர்ந்தருள் செய்யும் என்றலும்.

Then the merchant, the recipient of soaring grace
Adored the lotus-feet of the godly child and said;
"May you be pleased to wed this, verily a doll--,
The daughter rare of your servitor--, and thus grace us.?

சீர்கெழு சிவநேசர் தம்மை முன்னமே
கார்கெழு சோலைசூழ் காழி மன்னவர்
ஏர்கெழு சிறப்பில்நும் மகளைக் கொண்டினிப்
பார்கெழு மனையினிற் படர்மின் என்றலும்.

The Prince of Kaazhi girt with cloud-capped gardens
Spake to glorious Sivanesar thus: "May you take
Your daughter of resplendent beauty to your
World-famous mansion of lofty greatness.

Verse  1111:

அணங்கினும் மேம்படும் அன்னம் அன்னவள்
பணம்புரி யரவரைப் பரமர் முன்பணிந்
திணங்கிய முகில்மதில் சண்பை யேந்தலை
வணங்கியே நின்றனள் மண்ணு ளோர்தொழ.

Swan-like Poompaavai, more beauteous than Lakshmi,
Bowed before the Lord that wears in His waist
The five-headed serpent,
(at the temple-entrance)
And hailed by the world, adored the lord of Sanbai
And stood there.

Arunachala Siva.

The king said:'You are an enlightened  person who has a higher goal and it would not be right on my part
to restrict you to material affairs.  However, I request you to continue go guide me in carrying out my duties
as a king in the right manner.' Thayumanavar then served as a Philosopher guide to the king. After the
demise of the king, the queen, Rani Meenakshi, ascended the throne,  but she turned out to be a pleasure
seeking woman who made it difficult for Thayumanavar to continue in the court. It pained him to see
rival forces manoevring, to take over power. Disgusted by these events, Thaumanavar resigned from his
office and moved away from Trisirapuram.  He remembered the words of advice given by his guru
and remained in silence most of the time.  Gradually, the state of silence transformed him into a realized
being, ever in a state of Self awareness.  He started composing hymns  expressing of Self Realization.


Arunachala Siva.           

13. The secretive is indeed Brahman alone, and the exterior is Brahman alone.  The External is indeed
Brahman alone.  All is indeed Brahman alone.

14.  Brahman alone is 'waters are That'; the state of the beginning  and end of the world.  Brahman
alone is the beginning and end of the world.  All is indeed Brahman alone.

15. Being and non being are Brahman only.  I am only Brahman -  there is no doubt of this.  Whatever
is the least there is,  is Brahman only.  All indeed is Brahman only.

16.  Waking state is all Brahman only.  I am the supreme Brahman only.  Truth and existence are
Brahman only.  Brahman alone is the said to be the fourth state.

17. Being is Brahman, Brahman alone.  Regard for the Guru is Brahman alone.  The noble attitude
of the disciple is Brahman alone.

18. The before and the after are Brahman only.  The complete and the ancient is Brahman alone.
The direct presence is Brahman alone.  All is indeed Brahman alone.

19.  Being Consciousness Bliss is Brahman, Brahman is the perfect, the ancient.  The direct presence
is Brahman alone.  All is indeed Brahman alone.

Verse 1110:

இன்னணம் விளங்கிய ஏர்கொள் சாயலாள்
தன்னைமுன் கண்ணுறக் கண்ட தாதையார்
பொன்னணி மாளிகைப் புகலி வேந்தர்தாள்
சென்னியிற் பொருந்தமுன் சென்று வீழ்ந்தனர்.

When the father beheld his daughter of such mien
And beauty appear before him, he straight prostrated
On the ground with his head resting on the feet
Of the Prince of Pukali-digit with-golden mansions.

Arunachala Siva.
