Verse 3:

நீல வண்டறை கொன்றை
    நேரிழை மங்கை ஓர்திங்கள்
சால வாள்அர வங்கள்
    தங்கிய செஞ்சடை எந்தை
ஆல நீழலுள் ஆனைக்
    காவுடை ஆதியை நாளும்
ஏலு மாறுவல் லார்கள்
    எம்மையும் ஆளுடை யாரே.

Our father on whose matted locks, Koṉṟai flowers on which blue bees hum, a lady Ganga, who wears suitable ornaments, a crescent moon, and many cruel cobras stay,
and who is under the shade of the banyan tree.  Those who are able to perform such acts of welcoming the supreme being who has Aṉaikkā as his place, daily not only derive benefit but also can claim us as their servants. 

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 2:


வங்கம் மேவிய வேலை
    நஞ்செழ வஞ்சர்கள் கூடித்
தங்கள் மேல்அட ராமை
    உண்ணென உண்டிருள் கண்டன்
அங்கம் ஓதிய ஆனைக்
    காவுடை ஆதியை நாளும்
எங்கள் ஈசன்என் பார்கள்
    எம்மையும் ஆளுடை யாரே.

When the poison rose in the ocean of milk in which ships are moving, the cunning Devas  joined together, one who has a black neck having consumed the poison, requesting him "Drink it so that it might not attack them."  Those who claim the supreme being as their god, who is the author of the six Aṅgams and has Aṉaikkā, daily, not only derive benefit but also claim us as their servants.

Arunachala Siva.

Bhagwan Sri Ramana: If you deny the ego and scorch it by ignoring it, you would become free. If you accept the ego, it will impose limitations on you and throw you into a vain struggle to transcend them.

Sri V. Ganesan: we have, thus, to set aside thought-attention and regain Self-attention.

I declare with certainty that even when the mind is extinguished and is no more functioning in the form of thoughts, there still exists a Reality ('I Am') as the abode of Jnanananda [the bliss of true Knowledge], which was (previously) hiding (as 'I am this body') as though it were limited by time and space.
V. 924, Guru Vachaka Kovai


The one which is ever-attained (nitya-siddha) and which shines pervading everywhere devoid of (the differences such as) 'now' or 'then', 'here' or 'there', 'existing' or 'not existing', is the pure Siva.
V. 925, Guru Vachaka Kovai



Sri Sadhu Om: Here Sri Bhagavan asserts that even after the annihilation of the first thought which was shining all this time as 'I am this body', there does exist a Self shining as Sat-Chit-Ananda (Existence-Consciousness-Bliss), 'I am I'. Some schools of Buddhism say, "Finally there will remain nothing as Self; only a void (suny) will be there". But Sri Bhagavan refutes this wrong belief and emphatically declares from His own experience, "There certainly does exist a reality [Sat-vastu], which is Jnanananda; that state is not a void (sunya) but a perfect Whole(Purna)". Compare here verse 20 of Upadesa Undiyar, "Where 'I' (the ego-self) dies, that One (the real Self) shines forth spontaneously as 'I-I'; that alone is the Whole (Purna)," and Verse 12 of Ulladu Narpadu, "Self is true knowledge; it is not a void (though devoid of all objective knowledge)".

Verse  1:

மறைக ளாயின நான்கும்
    மற்றுள பொருள்களும் எல்லாத்
துறையும் தோத்திரத் திறையும்
    தொன்மையும் நன்மையும் ஆய
அறையும் பூம்புனல் ஆனைக்
    காவுடை ஆதியை நாளும்
இறைவன் என்றடி சேர்வார்
    எம்மையும் ஆளுடை யாரே.

Sivaṉ who is the four Vēdas, who is all other objects, who is the god which is praised in religions, the Ati who is the oldest thing beyond beginning and end, and the supreme goodness and bliss, the supreme being who has Aṉaikka of beautiful and dashing water. Those who approach the feet of the god, daily thinking as my Lord, not only derive benefit but also claim us as their servants.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


மங்கையோர் கூறுகந் தேறுகந் தேறி
    மாறலார் திரிபுரம் நீறெழச் செற்ற
அங்கையான் கழலடி யன்றிமற் றறியான்
    அடியவர்க் கடியவன் தொழுவன் ஆரூரன்
கங்கையார் காவிரித் துருத்தியார் வேள்விக்
    குடியுளார் அடிகளைச் சேர்த்திய பாடல்
தங்கையால் தொழுதுதம் நாவின்மேற் கொள்வார்
    தவநெறி சென்றமர் உலகம்ஆள் பவரே.


Placing with joy a lady on the left half, and riding on a bull with joy,
the god who has a palm which burnt the three cities of enemies for the ash to rise from them, one who does not know any other thing except the feet wearing anklets of that god and who is holy slave of his devotees, Ārūraṉ, who is his devotee.
The songs that were offered to the god in Vēḷvikkuṭi and Turutti on the bank of Kāveri as famous as the Ganga, worshipping them with their joined hands those who always repeat these, will tread the path of penance will definitely be rulers of the heaven.
Here heaven means the abode of Siva.

Padigam on Tiru Velvikkuti and Tiru Turutti completed.

Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharshi:  You can feel yourself one with the One that exists: the whole body becomes a mere power, a force-current: your life becomes a needle drawn to a huge mass of magnet and as you go deeper and deeper, you become a mere centre and then not even that, for you become a mere consciousness, there are no thoughts or cares any longer they were shattered at the threshold; it is an inundation ; you, a mere straw, you are swallowed alive, but it is very delightful, for you become the very thing that swallows you ; this is the union of Jeeva (individual soul), with Brahman, the loss of ego in the real Self, the destruction of falsehood, the attainment of Truth.

Verse  9:


புலங்களை வளம்படப் போக்கறப் பெருகிப்
    பொன்களே சுமந்தெங்கும் பூசல்செய் தார்ப்ப
இலங்குமா முத்தினோ டினமணி இடறி
    இருகரைப் பெருமரம் பீழ்ந்துகொண் டெற்றிக்
கலங்குமா காவிரித் துருத்தியார் வேள்விக்
    குடியுளார் அடிகளைச் செடியனேன் நாயேன்
விலங்குமா றறிகிலேன் எம்பெரு மானை
    மேலைநோய் இம்மையே வீடுவித் தானை.

Arriving with freshes, to make the fields fertile, and to remove all defects, carrying muggets of gold and scattering shining big pearls along with other precious stones.
dashing against the banks to uproot the big trees on both the banks all people in all places to cry loudly to form an uproar, the god in Vēḷvikkuṭi and Turutti on the bank of the great Kāveri of turbid water, our Lord who freed me from the suffering that I shall have to undergo in coming births, in this birth itself.  I, full of faults, who am as low as the dog, am incapable of keeping away from him.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:


ஊருமா தேசமே மனமுகந் துள்ளிப்
    புள்ளினம் பலபடிந் தொண்கரை உகளக்
காருமா கருங்கடல் காண்பதே கருத்தாய்க்
    கவரிமா மயிர்சுமந் தொண்பளிங் கிடறித்
தேருமா காவிரித் துருத்தியார் வேள்விக்
    குடியுளார் அடிகளைச் செடியனேன் நாயேன்
ஆருமா றறிகிலேன் எம்பெரு மானை
    அம்மைநோய் இம்மையே ஆசறுத் தானை.


The people in neighboring villages and in the big country to think gladly at heart and the many flocks of birds to have dip and run about in the beautiful banks, with the sole idea of joining the big blue sea full of water, carrying big yak-tails and breaking bright crystals, the god who is in Vēḷvikkuṭi and Turutti on the bank of the great Kāveri which carries with it the products in all the four regions, our Lord
who quickly destroyed the suffering that I shall have to undergo in succeeding births in this birth itself.  I, full of faults and who am as low as the dog, am incapable of enjoying.

Arunachala Siva.

Devotee: Are my present qualities of faith, humility and surrender sufficiently intense, or are they still very imperfect and requiring further development? If so, how can I quickly develop them to perfection so as to deserve Grace and early success in the realization of Atman, or in the annihilation of the ego?

Bhagwan Sri Ramana Maharshi:  Do not entertain such thoughts of imperfection, lack of qualities etc. You are already perfect. Get rid of the ideas of imperfection and need for development. There is nothing to realize or annihilate. You are the Self. The ego does not exist. Pursue the Enquiry and see if there is anything to be realized or annihilated. See if there is any mind to be controlled. Even the effort is being made by the mind which does not exist.
