Today i.e Fri 31 July 2015 happens to be Guru Purnima ,sharing the quote from Swami Krishnananda on "Guru"

The Guru is not a person, he is not a man or woman; he is a principle which represents a power behind and beyond the visible framework which you call the body of the Guru. And, therefore, to look upon the Guru as a person and then to judge him as you judge anybody else in the world, and to take his word or not to take it from your own point of view, would be to cut the ground from under your own feet.- Swami Krishnananda

Dear PKar

From what you have written it seems that the Girl knows Hindi / Sanskrit and hence best text for her to read is Soundarya Lahiri as suggested by Sri Subramaniam . It is better to read / listen the entire Soundarya Lahiri in 1 or 2 days instead of picking a particular verse ( as that must be done only by a competent person who is competent in the Mantra Sashtra ) .

The following link gives the youtube audio + text of the entire Soundarya Lahiri and it takes around 1 hr .

The other alterantive is to read Sundara Kandam from Ramayana ( either from Valmiki Ramayana in Sasnkrit or Tulasidas Ramayana in Hindi .The following link gives the audio & text of the entire  Valmiki Ramayana and you can pick the Sundara Kandam from this list and complete the entire Sundara Kandam in 1 week or 40 days .

Basically first create an auspicious atmosphere in the house for an auspicious activity to take place and best way to create an auspicious atmosphere is to light a lamp and  do prayers daily ( either Chant Soundarya Lahiri , Sundara Kandam , Vishnu Sahasranamam etc )  at a particular time by all the family members together and also visit temple once a week and these are the general guidelines and once you follow these general principles for some time you will get specific inputs on how to take the matter further .

There is an incident in Bhagavan Ramana's life when some one came for the marriage of their daughter and he recommended a verse from Saint Arunagiri Gathar's Thirupugazh and asked them to chant the same and soon that girl got married .I am not aware of that verse but I am sure Sri Subramaniam Sir will know more about this incident and also the verse and guide accordingly .Also Saint Thirugnana Sambandhar has song some beautiful pathigams for cure of many problems and I will check whether there is any pathigam for unmarried girls to get married soon .

Subramaniam Sir

Tiru Valanchuzhi is famous for the White Conch type Ganesha .I had seen that temple in Kumbakonam . The idol of Vinayaka is white in colour and is believed to have been created out of sea sand. Hence, the temple is also known as Swetha Vinayagar Temple in Sanskrit or Vellai Vinayakar Temple in Tamil, meaning "the temple of the white Vinayaka".

According to popular legend, Indra, the king of the Devas created the idol of Ganesha out of sea sand during the churning of the ocean and left it in a niche in the temple hoping to get back the idol sometime later. But later, when he returned to remove the idol of Ganesha, it would not budge. So, the idol was allowed to remain where it was.

Has Jnana Sambandhar sung any verse on this Vinayaka ?

Any reason why Manickavasagar is not considered one of the Naayanmaars ? Was it because he came after the list of 63 Nayanmars were compiled by Sekizhyar in Peria Puranam ?

The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Jnana
Sambandhar on Siva in the temple of Brahmapuram, another name of Sirkazhi.
This is in 1.127 of Saiva Canon.

The location of the temple, names of Siva and Uma, the holy tree, the holy tirtha
-- all these details have been given under the first Padigam on Sirkazhi, elsewhere
in this serial post.

The verses are called Eka Padam.  The same line is repeated four times in
each verse. 


பிரம புரத்துறை பெம்மா னெம்மான்
பிரம புரத்துறை பெம்மா னெம்மான்
பிரம புரத்துறை பெம்மா னெம்மான்
பிரம புரத்துறை பெம்மா னெம்மான்.

The Lord staying in Brahmapuram is our Master.
The Lord staying in Brahmapuram is our Master.
The Lord staying in Brahmapuram is our Master.
The Lord staying in Brahmapuran is our Master.

//

The detailed meaning as given by one ancient commentator is as under:

the Parasakti which is the spiritual atmosphere;
that fullness is to be exceedingly wondered.
That great one, our Lord.

(Having wondered at the fullness of the Parasakti of the spiritual atmosphere, having as its form the pleasure which is beyond the reach of the Parasakti, that thing whose beginning, middle and end is not known, is that great person).

In the heaven, water, desire,
the lady whose looks are like the deer`s looks -- our soul.

(He is our life who has Ganga which flows in the upper region of the heaven and
He is our life who never forsakes us)

the state of Brahmam,  the body, thinking, desire insatiable He who came
to me to make me equal to him.

(the god who came to me to make me equal to him with an insatiable desire to send me into eternal bliss and who was considered to be in the form of the supreme being).
the Lord who dwells in Brahmapuram, is my god-master.

(The meaning of the complete stanza - the god who is the creator who majestically dwells in Sirkazhi which has Brahmapuram, as one of its names, is a great one, my life, and has come into the world to be equal to me, is the god who dwells in Sirkazhi.

I did not understand head or tail. But one thing is sure. Saint Tiru Jnana Sambandhar
did not write these verses, where the same line is repeated four times, as a word play,
but with some inner meaning, which ordinary mortals like me cannot understand.

Arunachala Siva.


Subramaniam Sir

1) Is this the temple where Saint Jnana Sambandhar got the darshan of Lord Shiva and Parvathi  near the temple tank when he was a young boy .

2) This verse looks strange and has anyone given any proper interpretation to this verse ? In Thirumandiram these sort of 4 line verses will be there .

Subramaniam Sir

After a long gap only I am seeing this thread . Would be happy if you can present Thevaram verses for the following 2 temples:

1) Thiruvadai Maruthur
2) Vaitheeswaran Koil ( in Tamil it is called Pul-Irruku-Velor )

I do not know whether you have already shared the verses for the above 2 temples before .
Regarding Thiruvadai Maruthur it is significant as all the 4 Saivite Saints have visited that place and sung hymns in Praise of the Cheif Deity "Mahalinga Swamy " ( In this place Lord Shiva's name does not have Ishwar as the suffix like Vaitheeshwar , Kapaleeeshwar but as Maha Lingam ) and it seems even Adi Shankara has visited this place and the Lord Maha Linga Swamy gave him the darshan assuring him that Advaitam is Sathyam .

Vallalar had the highest regard for Saint Manickavachagar and Thiruvachagam and the following verses of Vallaar from Thiruarutpa proves the same

"வான்கலந்த மாணிக்கவாசக! நின் வாசகத்தை
நான்கலந்து பாடுங்கால், நற்கருப்பஞ்சற்றினிலே
தேன்கலந்து, பால்கலந்து, செழுங்கனித் தீஞ்சுவை கலந்து,என்
ஊன்கலந்து, உயிர்கலந்து, உவட்டாமல் இனிப்பதுவே!"

"வாட்டமிலா மாணிக்க வாசக நின் வாசகத்தை
கேட்டபொழு தங்கிருந்த கீழ்ப்பறவை சாதிகளும்
வேட்டமுறும் பொல்லா விலங்குகளும் மெய்ஞ்ஞான
நாட்டமுறும் என்னிலிங்கு நானடைதல் வியப்பன்றே!."
- வள்ளலார் சுவாமிகள்.
