Verse  3:


தொண்டர்கள் பாடவிண் ணோர்க ளேத்த உழிதர்வீர்
பண்டகந் தோறும் பலிக்குச் செல்வதும் பான்மையே
கண்டகர் வாளிகள் வில்லி கள்புறங் காக்குஞ்சீர்
மொண்டகை வேள்வி முழக்க றாமுது குன்றரே.


You wander when devotees sing your fame and the celestial beings praise you.
Is it proper for you to go to every house to receive alms?  In the past?
the Lord in Mutukuṉṟam where the sound of the famous sacrifices where ghee is poured by the hand and which is guarded by people who hold daggers, big swords and archers!


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:


ஏரிக் கனகக் கமல மலரன்ன சேவடி
ஊரித் தனையுந் திரிந்தக் காலவை நோங்கொலோ
வாரிக் கட்சென்று வளைக்கப் பட்டு வருந்திப்போய்
மூரிக் களிறு முழக்க றாமுது குன்றரே.


Will the red feet which are like the golden lotus feet blossomed in lakes, ache, if they wander in all these places in this world!  Or will they not ache?  The Lord in Mutukuṉṟam where the roar of the strong elephant which goes away escaping with great difficulty, surrounded by hunters who capture elephants fallen into the pit dug for that purpose never ceases.


Arunachala Siva.

Be assured that That which ever shines [for all] is certainly the true Existence of Self, 'I am'. When the True God is thus realised as one's own Self, without doubt or misconception, the Supreme Bliss will brim over.
V. 292, Guru Vachaka Kovai (GVK)

293. Having known for certain that everything which is seen, without the least exception, is merely a dream, and that it [the seen] does not exist without the seer, turn only towards Self --- Sat-Chit-Ananda --- without attending to the world of names and forms, which is only a mental conception.
V. 293, GVK



Dear Devotees,

What is seen is merely a dream, and it does not exist without the seer. But what about the seer of this dream? Is the seer real? No. we now know that the seer is also an unreal dream, like the seen itself! Self or Brahman is said to possess five aspects---Existence, Consciousness, Bliss, name and form, of which Existence, Consciousness and Bliss alone are real, and name and form are unreal. Since our Goal is to know ourselves as the Self and as naught else, the Teaching exhorts us to turn towards the Self---Existence-Consciousness-Bliss---without attending to the unreal name and form.
Dear devotees, if we attend to the Existence-Consciousness-Bliss, that is, the Self or Brahman, instead of attending to the unreal names and forms, then only the whole universe can be known as Existence-Consciousness-Bliss, that is, as the Self or Brahman, and not as names and forms.   

The seer (thinker or the ego) of the dream sees his own name and form and myriad other names and forms, all different from him, and is restless. Is it now.  Always rising, setting and wandering, it is almost always unhappy and in a state of lack for this or that. 

Therefore, Sri Bhagwan taught:

"Do not wander outside, eating the scorching sand of worldly pleasures, which are non-Self; come home to the Heart where Peace is shining as a vast, everlasting, cool shade, and enjoy the feast of the Bliss of Self."

Tiru Mutukunram:


Verse  1:

பொன்செய்த மேனியினீர் புலித்
    தோலை அரைக்கசைத்தீர்
முன்செய்த மூவெயிலும் மெரித்
    தீர்முது குன்றமர்ந்தீர்
மின்செய்த நுண்ணிடையாள் பர
    வையிவள் தன்முகப்பே
என்செய்த வாறடிகேள் அடி
    யேன்இட் டளங்கெடவே.


Siva who has a holy body glittering like gold!  You tied a tiger's skin in the waist, you burnt all the three well-built forts long ago. You dwelt in Mutukuṉṟu. In the presence of this lady, Paravai, who has a waist as supple as the lightning, my god what is the thing you did? You grant your grace to remove the difficulty of your slave.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  10:


ஏரார் முப்புரமும் மெரி
    யச்சிலை தொட்டவனை
வாரார் கொங்கையுடன் மழ
    பாடியுள் மேயவனைச்
சீரார் நாவலர்கோன் ஆ
    ரூரன் உரைத்ததமிழ்
பாரோர் ஏத்தவல்லார் பர
    லோகத் திருப்பாரே.

On Siva who made use of the bow to burn the beautiful three cities and the one who dwells in Mazhapāṭi along with a lady wearing a bodice on her breast.  The people of this world who can praise Siva with the Tamiḻ verses composed by Arūraṉ who is the important person in the far-famed Nāvalūr,  will live happily in the superior Sivalokam.

Padigam on Tiru Mazhapati completed.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  9:


நெறியே நின்மலனே நெடு
    மாலயன் போற்றிசெய்யும்
குறியே நீர்மையனே கொடி
    யேரிடை யாள்தலைவா
மறிசேர் அங்கையனே மழ
    பாடியுள் மாணிக்கமே
அறிவே நின்னையல்லால் இனி
    யாரை நினைக்கேனே.


Siva who is the right path to living beings!  The one who is not contaminated by the impurities of the soul!  The object of meditation and prayer for tall Vishnu and Brahma, one who has benign qualities!  The husband of Uma who has a beautiful waist like a creeper!  The one who holds in his palm a young deer!  The ruby in Mazhapāṭi!
The embodiment of all knowledge! Whom else shall I think now except you?


Arunachala Siva.

Verse  8:


வெய்ய விரிசுடரோன் மிகு தேவர்
    கணங்களெல்லாம்
செய்ய மலர்களிட மிகு
    செம்மையுள் நின்றவனே
மையார் பூம்பொழில்சூழ் மழ
    பாடியுள் மாணிக்கமே
ஐயா நின்னையல்லால் இனி
    யாரை நினைக்கேனே.

Siva who stood steadfast in impartiality and granted your grace when the hot sun of radiating rays and other superior groups of Devas scattered flawless flowers and worshiped you!  The ruby in Mazhapāṭi surrounded by flower gardens on which clouds settle master!  Whom else shall I think now except you!

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  7:


சந்தா ருங்குழையாய் சடை
    மேற்பிறை தாங்கிநல்ல
வெந்தார் வெண்பொடியாய் விடை
    யேறிய வித்தகனே
மைந்தார் சோலைகள்சூழ் மழ
    பாடியுள் மாணிக்கமே
எந்தாய் நின்னையல்லால் இனி
    யாரை நினைக்கேனே.


The one who wears an ear-ring which has joints!  Siva who bears a crescent moon on the matted locks. The one who smears white, well burnt and good holy ash!
Able person who rides on a bull!  The ruby in Mazhapāṭi surrounded by very beautiful gardens.  My father! Whom else shall I think now except you!

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  6:


நாளார் வந்தணுகி நலி
    யாமுனம் நின்றனக்கே
ஆளா வந்தடைந்தேன் அடி
    யேனையும் ஏன்றுகொள்நீ
மாளா நாளருளும் மழ
    பாடியுள் மாணிக்கமே
ஆளாய் நின்னையல்லால் இனி
    யாரை நினைக்கேனே.

Before the last day approaches and afflicts me, I came to you only as your protege.
You receive your humble servant too. The ruby in Mazhapāṭi who grants everlasting life!  Having become your humble servant, whom else shall I think now except you?

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:


கண்ணாய் ஏழுலகுங் கருத்
    தாய அருத்தமுமாய்ப்
பண்ணார் இன்றமிழாய்ப் பர
    மாய பரஞ்சுடரே
மண்ணார் பூம்பொழில்சூழ் மழ
    பாடியுள் மாணிக்கமே
அண்ணா நின்னையல்லால் இனி
    யாரை நினைக்கேனே.


Being the knowledge. Being the objects which are desired by the living beings in the seven worlds. Being the sweet Tamiḻ which is full of music.  The supreme light which transcends all things!  The god who is as valuable as a ruby in Mazhapāṭi surrounded by flower-gardens which beautify that place.  Siva who is older than all and therefore is in the relation of elder brothers to all!  Whom else shall I think now except you?

Arunachala Siva.
