making time, of the timeless
making boundaries, of the limitless
making something, of the nothing
making end, of the source

நீ இரங்காய் எனில் புகல் ஏது? - அம்பா
நிகில ஜகன்னாதன் மார்பில் உறை திரு
(நீ இரங்காய் எனில்)

தாய் இரங்கா விடில், சேய் உயிர் வாழுமோ?
சகல உலகிற்கும் நீ, தாய் அல்லவோ அம்பா?
(நீ இரங்காய் எனில்)

பாற்கடலில் உதித்த திருமகளே - செள
பாக்ய லட்சுமி என்னைக் கடைக்கணியே
நாற்கவியும் பொழியும் புலவோர்க்கும் - மெய்
ஞானியர்க்கும் உயர் வானவர்க்கும் அம்பா
(நீ இரங்காய் எனில்)

        Nee irangayenil pugal yethu,Amba
Nikhila Jagan nathan Marbil urai

Thai irangavidil chei uyir vaazhumo,
Sakala Uyirkkum nee Thayallavo, amba

Paar kadalil uditha thiru maniye, sou,
Bhagyalakshmi Yennai kadai kanniye,
Naar kaviyum pozhiyum pulavorkkum , mey
Jnaniyakkum Uyarvanavarkkum , Amba


Oh mother who stays in the chest of,
The Lord of all places of universe
If you do not take pity on me ,where can I get support.

If theirr mother does not take pity, will the babies survive,
Oh mother are you not mother for all beings.

Oh divine gem who was born out of the ocean of milk,
Oh Bountiful Lakshmi , who takes care by supporting like a chain,,
All the poets who write different types of poems,
As well as those people who have realized the truth.
And to all those people who are great, Oh mother

just random musing....

Its also like,

"the Self reveals itself" ultimately. A revelation without a revelation!

which itself is "Sat Bodha Sukham"
which itself is "Sat guru" "Sat guruvanavar" (also conveys that Satbodha Sukham and Guru are same or not different)
which itself speaks yet unspoken
which's language transcends all languages (also shies (Shy) away to call it even silence, He leaves it unnamed, nothing better!)

தானெ தானெ தத்துவ மிதனைத்
தானெ கட்டுவா யருணாசலா

Taannne Taannne Tattuva Midannnait
Taannne Kattttuvaa Yarunnaasalaa

O Arunachala, Self (the consciousness, ‘I am’) itself is
the Reality. Reveal this to me Yourself. (Michael James) still beauty is not complete as Tamizh elucidates!

Our attitude about free will is very important ...

If we take Bhagavan's way, then it is not our attitude about free will that is important but the very entity that is referred to as the 'I'.

When thoughts arise, one should not pursue them, but should inquire: ‘To whom do they arise?’ It does not matter how many thoughts arise. As each thought arises, one should inquire with diligence, “To whom has this thought arisen?”. The answer that would emerge would be “To me”. Thereupon if one inquires “Who am I?”, the mind will go back to its source; and the thought that arose will become quiescent. With repeated practice in this manner, the mind will develop the skill to stay in its source. When the mind that is subtle goes out through the brain and the senseorgans, the gross names and forms appear; when it stays in the heart, the names and forms disappear. Not letting the mind go out, but retaining it in the Heart is what is called “inwardness” (antarmukha). Letting the mind go out of the Heart is known as “externalisation” (bahir-mukha). Thus, when the mind stays in the Heart, the ‘I’ which is the source of all thoughts will go, and the Self which ever exists will shine. Whatever one does, one should do without the egoity “I”. If one acts in that way, all will appear as of the nature of Siva (God). (Who am I, 11)

Bhagavan's way directly guides us to kill the 'I' right at the roots, giving no way for the 'I' to grow and analyse further so and so forth.

Nothing is more important than subjugating the 'I' that is sprouting.

   Parvati had fallen in love with Shiva and she didn’t know what she could do about it. She thought of Shiva all the time.

One day the sage Narada came and told her, Shiva is only pleased with tapasya. Without tapasya, even Brahma and the other gods do not get to see Shiva. Why don’t you perform tapasya?

Parvati decided to do what Narada had asked her to. She asked her parents for permission. Her father agreed with alacrity. Although her mother Menaka was not at all keen that Parvati should perform difficult tapasya, she too eventually agreed.

Parvati gave up her jewellery and handsome clothes. She wore deerskin instead. There is a peak in the Himalayas known as Gouriskikhara. It is there that Parvati went for her tapasy. The meditation was very difficult. During the monsson Parvati meditated while seated on the ground. In the winter she mediated under the water. Wild beats dared not harm her. All the gods and sages assembled to see this wonderful tapasya. The gods and the sages also began to pray to Shiva. Lord, can’t you see that Parvati is performing difficult tapasya? They asked. No one has meditated like this before. No one will meditate like this in the future. Please grant her what she wants.

Shiva adopted the form of an old brahmana (the first of the four classes) and appeared at Parvati’s hermitage. Parvati welcomed the old man and worshipped him with flowers and fruits.

Why are you meditating? asked the brahmana. What is it that you want?

I wish to have Shiva as a husband, replied Parvati.

You are indeed stupid. Said the brahmana. That is like giving up gold for a piece of glass or giving sandalwood for mud. Does anyone give up the water of the Ganga and drink water from a well instead? Marry one of the gods instead, go and marry Indra. Shiva is a stupid fellow. He has three eyes and five faces. His hair is matted and his body is smeared with ashes. He wears snakes as garlands. He is always accompanied by ghosts, He has no clothes and no wealth. No one knows who his parent are. He live sin the forst and his throat is blue with poison. I think you are making a big mistake. Forget about Shiva and don’t waste your life.

The brahmana’s words angered Parvati. It is you who are stupid, she said. You don’t know a thing about Shiva. He is the lord of everthing. You have insulted Shiva and cursed am I that I made the mistake of worshipping you. You are again going to say something nasty about Shiva. But before you can do that, let me go away. I shall not stay to hear Shiva insulted.

As Parfati was about to depart, Shiva adopted his own form and said, Where are you going? I thought that you were praying for me. You can’t forsake me now. I am not going to let you go. Ask for a boon.

Please marry me according to the prescribed rites, replied Parvati.

Shiva agreed and Parvati returned home.

This is very well known -

அவன் அருளாலே அவன் தாள் வணங்கிச்

but we fail to read the line just previous to this -

சிவன் அவன் என் சிந்தையுள் நின்ற அதனால்

சிவன் அவன் என் சிந்தையுள் நின்ற அதனால்
அவன் அருளாலே அவன் தாள் வணங்கிச்


Because that  Lord Shiva stood in my thought,
I would salute his feet by his grace

I am the mother of the wicked, as I am the mother of the virtuous.
Never fear. Whenever you are in distress, say to yourself, ‘I have a mother.’

I can never refuse anyone who addresses me as Mother.
