DESTRUCTION OF VASANAS
The nature of thoughts that arise in the mind will be in accordance with the old vasanas.
Vasanas themselves are the mind. If there are no vasanas there is no mind. That which Is, is sat.
The disturbing agitation of mind that occurs when one attempts to get firmly established in sadhana is a normal occurrence that is prompted by the rising of vasanas.
If at that time you hold tightly to the power of the grace of the parasakti that has possessed you (the inner feeling for the ?I?-am) the vasanas that agitate your mind and distress you will be completely destroyed.
Unless the destruction of all vasanas is accomplished, it will not be possible even for Ishwara to bestow the state of liberation.

Verse  2:


கொல்லையே றுடையவன் கோவண ஆடையன்
பல்லையார் படுதலைப் பலிகொளும் பரமனார்
முல்லையார் புறவணி முதுபதி நறைகமழ்
தில்லையா னுறைவிடந் திருவுசாத் தானமே.


Siva has a bull that lives in the forest region.  He dresses himself in a men's loin-cloth,
the supreme being who receives alms on a dead skull which has its teeth intact.
Tiru Usathnam is the abode of the god in Thillai where fragrance spreads, and the ancient place which is made beautiful by the forest region where the creepers, Arabian jasmine are flourishing.

Arunachala Siva.

Tiru Usathanam:

Verse  1:



நீரிடைத் துயின்றவன் றம்பிநீள் சாம்புவான்
போருடைச் சுக்கிரீ வன்அநு மான்றொழக்
காருடை நஞ்சுண்டு காத்தருள் செய்தவெம்
சீருடைச் சேடர்வாழ் திருவுசாத் தானமே.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  11:

கோடுசந் தனமகில் கொண்டிழி வைகைநீர்
ஏடுசென் றணைதரு மேடகத் தொருவனை
நாடுதென் புகலியுண் ஞானசம் பந்தன
பாடல்பத் திவைவல்லார்க் கில்லையாம் பாவமே.


On the unequalled Siva in Eṭakam where the strip of a Palmyra leaf with a verse written on it reaches in the water going upstream in the river Vaigai which flows taking in it tusks of elephants sandal woods and eagle wood. there will be no sins to those who are capable of reciting these ten verses, of Jnana Sambandhan, Pukali in the south desired earnestly by all. (The anecdote suggested is an internal evidence;
the details are given exhaustively in Periya Purāṇam, Jnana Sambandhar  Nāyaṉār Purāṇam, verses 846-851.)

Padigam on Tiru Etakam completed.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:

குண்டிகைக் கையினர் குணமிலாத் தேரர்கள்
பண்டியைப் பெருக்கிடும் பளகர்கள் பணிகிலர்
வண்டிரைக் கும்மலர்க் கொன்றையும் வன்னியும்
இண்டைசேர்க் குஞ்சடை யேடகத் தெந்தையே.


The Jains who carry an ascetic's pitcher in their hands and Buddhists who are not good-natured, both of them who are stupid and increase the size of their paunch, have not the good fortune to pay homage. Siva our father who is in Eṭakam and in whose matted locks, he combines in the circlet Koṉṟai flowers on which bees hum and leaves of Indian mesquit, is the syntactical link.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:


பொன்னுமா மணிகளும் பொருதிரைச் சந்தகில்
தன்னுளார் வைகையின் கரைதனிற் சமைவுற
அன்னமா மயனுமா லடிமுடி தேடியும்
இன்னவா றெனவொணான் ஏடகத் தொருவனே.


On the bank of the river Vaigai, where the waves dash perishing along with them gold, big gems, sandal wood and eagle-wood trees and leave them deposited.  The unequalled god in Eṭakam is indescribable as this is his form even though Brahma who transformed himself into a swan and Vishnu,  who changed himself into a pig, could not find his feet and head.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:

தடவரை யெடுத்தவன் றருக்கிறத் தோளடர்
படவிர லூன்றியே பரிந்தவற் கருள்செய்தான்
மடவர லெருக்கொடு வன்னியு மத்தமும்
இடமுடைச் சடையினன் ஏடகத் திறைவனே.

Fixing firmly the toe to press down the shoulders to destroy the pride of the demon who lifted the big mountain, Siva later taking pity on him granted his grace.  Siva who has on his spacious matted locks, Gaṅga, in the form of a lady, Yarcum, leaves of Indian mesquit and Datura flowers, is the Lord in Eṭakam.


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:


பொய்கையின் பொழிலுறு புதுமலர்த் தென்றலார்
வைகையின் வடகரை மருவிய வேடகத்
தையனை யடிபணிந் தரற்றுமின் னடர்தரும்
வெய்யவன் பிணிகெட வீடெளி தாகுமே.


In Eṭakam which is situated on the north bank of the river Vaigai where the balmy southern breeze which carries the fragrance of the fresh flowers growing in the tanks and gardens, fills up the place. People of this world! Shout with excitement paying homage to the feet of the father.  Attaining salvation is easy as the cruel and not easily curable diseases which are crowded, are destroyed.

Arunachala Siva.
