  • How many billions of pleasures have you made
    Oh God, Oh God, Oh God


  • you joined the divine with the non-divine
    And mixed the five elements and made this world
    And that wolrd is a treasure of colours,
    Which you made with several pretty, pretty things

  • You made a stage called salvation and there.
    made the ability to know all things to be known.
    you made a stage called devotion,
    Oh Primeval God, Oh Primeval God, Oh Primeval God.

I had compiled the quotes into pdf book format, (so that i could circulate to my other friends), which had been posted. Please note, this book only has those quotes posted by me alone, so many wonderful quotes were posted by Subramanian Sir and Jewel as well, i had already collected in a doc. form and just compiled it as it is. IN my next version, God willing, shall include many other wonderful quotes posted by our friends. Thanks so much all.

        In this the month of margazhi and on this the day auspicious,when the moon is in full bloom all ye that desire to take the holy dip, step forth,ye the damsels bedecked in ornaments so bright and straight, ye the prosperous girls of affluent aaipadi! He who is the son of nandagopan of cruel deed who holds a sharp pointed spear and He who is the lion-cub of yashoda whose eyes are abrim with charm and beauty. He whose complexion is dark as the rain-cloud,whose eyes are balanced in justice and fairplay, and whose visage mirrors the effulgent sun and the moon-He is Narayanan and He Himself would surely present to us the Drum for this our penance chosen,to the knowledge and acclaim of the entire world. Listen and ponder(El  Or),our(em)  Girl(pAvAi)!

(Verse 1)

Way to Liberation
O Ye people all,Living in the world process!
(Oh Citizens of the World-Ravi)
Hearken to the code we've set for our penance chosen;
singing the praise of the feet of the absolute,
who is in gentle slumber in the ocean of milk.
we shall forswear ghee and milk also;
taking our bath in the predawn time.
we shall not apply collyrium to our eyes
nor plait our tresses with flowers of any kind.
We shall not do what we should not be done
and we shall not voice around malefic complaints;
charity we shall extend even when it is unsought,
apart from giving away to those who seek aid;
and this our hand shall do to the extent of resource.
Thus we are Gladdened to have ascertained
The way to Liberation,Listen and Ponder,our Girl!

(Verse 2)

        Meditation in Depth
Chanting the praise of the superior one who measured all the worlds (in two giant strides)
if we pledge ourselves to our penance and proceed towards the Holy dip,
the entire land would benefit by three timely rains
in the course of the month,with the downpour causing no harm
The red paddy would flourish in such a manner
that the kayal fish could leap in the water amidst the stalks;
and the spotted bumble-bee would rest in slumber
in the centre of the beauteous kuvalai blossom.
Without stagnating if you go inly(inly-TGN 's translation!Merriam webster gives the meaning:in a manner suggesting great depth of knowledge or understanding : thoroughly )
and settle there to hold and milk the bounteous udders
of the Great cows that are generous givers,
they would then fill the pitcher with everlasting wealth.
Listen and ponder,our girl!

(Verse 3)

What need is there even to bother one's head about whether God is
formless or has a form? It is enough for a man to pray to Him, alone in solitude,
weeping, 'O God, reveal Yourself to me as You are.'

"God is both inside and outside. It is He who dwells inside us. Therefore the
Vedas say, 'Tattvamasi—That thou art.' God is also outside us. He appears manifold
through maya; but in reality He alone exists. Therefore before describing the
various names and forms of God, one should say, 'Om Tat Sat.'

There is a sadhu in Hrishikesh who gets up early in the morning and stands near a
great waterfall. He looks at it the whole day and says to God: 'Ah, You have done
well! Well done! How amazing! He doesn't practise any other form of japa or
austerity. At night he returns to his hut.

ஆதியந்தங் காட்டாத முதலா யெம்மை
    அடியைக்கா வளர்த்தெடுத்த அன்னை போல
நீதிபெறுங் குருவாகி மனவாக் கெட்டா
   நிச்சயமாய்ச் சொச்சமதாய் நிமல மாகி
வாதமிடுஞ் சமயநெறிக் கரிய தாகி
    மௌனத்தோர் பால்வெளியாய் வயங்கா நின்ற
சோதியைஎன் னுயிர்த்துணையை நாடிக் கண்ணீர்
    சொரியஇரு கரங்குவித்துத் தொழுதல் செய்வாம்

The Being Primal that has neither beginning nor end,
The foster mother that in endearment excessive reared me,
The righteous Guru that blesses,
The Certainty beyond thought
The Purity unalloyed,
The Holy of Holies,
The Object beyond the reach of contending faiths,
The Effulgences that stood as Void for the munis of silentness,
My life's dear support -
That I seek and adore
With tears gushing
And hands in reverence folded.

From Verse 10 of PoruL VaNakkam

From the Verse 10 of PoruL VaNakkam

உண்ணிறைந்த பேரன்பா லுள்ளுருகி மொழிகுழறி
    உவகை யாகிக்
கண்ணிறைந்த புனலுகுப்பக் கரமுகிழ்ப்ப நின்னருளைக்
    கருத்தில் வைப்பாம்

With heart surging in love and melting within;
With words faltering in joyous confusion;
With eyes streaming tears
And hands folded in meekness,
Let us Thy Grace contemplate.

How wonderful Thy compassion is O' Lord,
Thou appear as Mother, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as Father, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as brother, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as friend, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as Guru, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear as me, when i beseech Thee,
Thou appear beyond me, when i beseech Thee,
Thou art always overflowing with compassion!
Thou feed me, when hunger calls,
What good did thou makest of i,
that i deserved Thou?
Thou loved me, out of
Thy compassion,
not even i, thought of you, but
Thou always thought of me!
what can i repay to Thou?
For, Thou even asketh not, and
possess not a thing do i.

Dear Sir,

I present the english translations of the verses provided by you.


My Emperumaan- Even a Great Gnani can not say firmly that He has one nature; At the
same time Even a fool (like me!) can easily say He is of this form and nature;
such a simple Lord; The names the forms are so many thousands for Him; "He does
not have one name and one form". claims many who do not love Him most; "Not that;
He is of this name and form only"- claims those who are His bhakthAs- and their
arguments will continue for ever and ever"


Emperumaan gave us the vEdhas and their ways; He is full of kalyANa guNAs; He is the
primordial Lord who has no end; He is equipped with beautiful Great GnAnam; - Follow
the respected Bhakti way for Him and leave all "other" ways; Realise the Gnanam which
He has granted us; and get rid of the poorva vaasanAs (praaraptha karmaas).
