Verse 6:

படர்பொற் சடையும் பகுவா யரவும் பனிமதியும்
சுடலைப் பொடியுமெல் லாமுள வேயவர் தூயதெண்ணீர்க்
கெடிலக் கரைத்திரு வீரட்ட ராவர்கெட் டேனடைந்தார்
நடலைக்கு நற்றுணை யாகுங்கண் டீரவர் நாமங்களே.


Siva has all the distinctive marks of  golden matted locks, which is spread out, a cobra with a wide open mouth, a cool crescent moon and ash of the cremation ground. I did not follow after him and seek him as my refuge out of my ignorance.  He is the god who dwells in the Tiruvīraṭṭam, on the bank of the river, Ketilam which has holy and clear water.  Woe is mine.  His names will be good companion to remove the sufferings of those who approached him.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  5:

ஆரட்ட தேனு மிரந்துண் டகமக வன்றிரிந்து
வேரட்ட நிற்பித் திடுகின்ற தால்விரி நீர்பரவைச்
சூரட்ட வேலவன் றாதையைச் சூழ்வய லாரதிகை
வீரட்டத் தானை விரும்பா வரும்பாவ வேதனையே.


The trouble of born out of the sin, committed in previous birth which cannot be avoided, as I did not cherish with love Siva in Atikai Vīraṭṭam, which has field and the father of spear wielding Murugan, who killed demon, in the expensive ocean filled with water.  Eating by begging the food cooked by anybody, without inquiring, who cooked it and whether it is fit for me to eat, to appease my hunger, and being a wandered from house to house, causes me to stand before house, the sweat to flow down the body.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  4:


மீனுடைத் தண்புனல் வீரட்ட ரேநும்மை வேண்டுகின்றதி
யானுடைச் சில்குறை யொன்றுள தானறுந் தண்ணெருக்கின்
தேனுடைக் கொன்றைச் சடையுடைக் கங்கைத் திரைதவழும்
கூனுடைத் திங்கட் குழவியெப் போதுங் குறிக்கொண்மினே.

Lord in Vīraṭṭam, which has cool water abounding in fish!  There is a small request that I want to make to you.  Guard carefully always the curved crescent moon which crawls in the waves of the Ganga, which is in your matted locks, which is adorned with cool and fragrant Yarcum flowers and Koṉṟai flowers having honey, from being drowned.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 3:

அம்மலர்க் கண்ணிய ரஞ்சனஞ் செந்துவர் வாயிளையார்
வெம்முலைச் சாந்தம் விலைபெறு மாலை யெடுத்தவர்கள்
தம்மருங் குற்கிரங் கார்தடந் தோண்மெலி யக்குடைவார்
விம்மு புனற்கெடி லக்கரைத் தேயெந்தை வீரட்டமே.


Young girls who have eyes coated with collyrium and resembling beautiful blue Nelumbo flowers and have red lips like coral.  Whose chose sandal paste smeared on the warn breasts and highly valuable garlands to adorn themselves.  Without feeling pity for their slender waist, they plunge and bathe to make their big shoulders exhausted.  Vīraṭṭam of our father is on the bank of the Keṭilam full of water.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse  2:


பைங்காற் றவளை பறைகொட்டப் பாசிலை நீர்ப்படுகர்
அங்காற் குவளைமே லாவி யுயிர்ப்ப வருகுலவும்
செங்காற் குருகிவை சேருஞ் செறிகெடி லக்கரைத்தே
வெங்காற் குருசிலை வீர னருள்வைத்த வீரட்டமே.


The Vīraṭṭam on which Siva, who has bright bow with cruel ends, was gracious enough to dwell there. The frog with green legs to make a sound like that of the drum.
The tanks with water and green leaves to waft the fragrance of the blue Nelunbo flowers with beautiful stems.  It is on the bank of the Keṭilam full of water where the swans with red legs, which are moving to and fro near that place, reach those flowers.

Arunachala Siva.

We are like lutes once held by the Beloved.
Being away from His Divine body fully explains all yearning.

Do not,like an idiot,be at mercy of the spear
But of the King whose hand brandishes it.
Crying out to the spear and sword are absurd;
They are just slaves in the Noble One's hand.
Whatever instrument He makes of me,I am.
If He makes me of a cup,I am a cup.
I am a dagger if He makes me a dagger.
If He makes me a fountain,water pours out of me;
Heat dances out of me if me makes me a fire.
If He makes me a rain,I give birth to rich fields;
If He makes me an arrow,I pierce hearts.
If He makes me a serpent,poison flames from me.
If He makes me a friend,I serve my friends.
He is the Writer,I am the pen in His fingers.
Who am i to obey or disobey.

Rumi

She's found him, she has, but Radha disbelieves


She's found him, she has, but Radha disbelieves
That it's true, what she sees when her eyes behold
     her master's moonlike face.
Her gaze is fixed, but her mind is glazed,
     her eyes refuse to close;
And her intellect wages a raging debate:
     Is it a dream? Or is this her true Lord?
Her eyes fill and fill with beauty's high pleasure,
     then hide it away in her breast:
Like bees driven wild by any distance from honey
     they dart back and forth from the hoard to the source.
Sometimes she musters her thoughts; she wonders:
     "Who does he love? Who can this Hari be?"
For love, says Sur, is an awkward thing.
     It ripples the mind with waves.

Surdas

Beautiful truth,and beautiful post,dear Sri Atmavichar! It reminds me on one story i have heard,and i just posted one version of it in the poetry thread. It is named 'Absurd prayer'.

Indeed,love and sincerity are the most important. Sure not only for sadhana,but in all aspects of our lives.

With love,

ABSURD PRAYER


Let me tell you a small story. It happened that Moses was passing and he came across a man who was praying. But he was doing such an absurd prayer (not only absurd, but insulting to God) that Moses stopped. It was absolutely unlawful. It is better not to pray than to pray in such a way, because the man was saying things which are impossible to believe. The man was saying, 'Let me come close to you my God. my Lord, and I promise that I will clean your body when it is dirty. Even if lice are there, I will take them away?. And I am a good shoe-maker, I will make you perfect shoes. You are moving in such ancient shoes -dirty, gone completely dirty?. And nobody looks after you, my Lord. I will look after you. When you are ill, I will serve and give you medicine. And I am a good cook also!'
This type of prayer he was doing! So Moses said, 'Stop! Stop your nonsense! What are you saying? To whom are. you talking - to God? And He has lice on His body? And His clothes are dirty and you will clean them? And nobody is there to look after Him, and you will be His cook? From whom have you learned this prayer?'
The man said, 'I have not learned it from anywhere. I am a very poor and uneducated man, and I don't know how to pray. I have made it up myself and these are the things that I know. Lice trouble me very much, so He must be in trouble. And sometimes the food is not good - my wife is not a good cook - and my stomach aches. He must be also suffering. This is just my own experience that has become my prayer. But if you know the right prayer, you teach me.'
So Moses taught him the right prayer. The man bowed down to Moses, thanked him, tears of deep gratitude flowing, and he went away. Moses was very happy. He thought that he had done a good deed. He looked at the sky to see what God thought about it.
And God was very angry! He said, 'I have sent you there to bring people closer to me, but you have thrown away one of my greatest lovers. Now he will be doing the right prayer, but it won?t be a prayer at all - because prayer has nothing to do with the law. It is LOVE. Love is a law unto itself; it needs no other law.'
