Guhai Namasivaya's Poems - (23)
« on: September 20, 2008, 06:53:59 PM »
Please read the second 21 and 22.

Vidu Thiru Namam: continues....

1. The leopard gives birth to five babies at a time.  The cat
gives three at a time.  The cow delivers only one.  Our karmas
like leopard's babies ( large in number) will perish and our
dharmas like the calf (even if small in number) will save us
from rebirth, O Aruncahala!

2.  O Arunachala! You shall confer us all our wants and our
families will be happy at your grace.  O Arunachala, the consort
of Unnamulai, the god who burnt Tripura, why should we care about anything, when you are with us and for us?

3. O Arunachala, the consumer of poison from the milky ocean!
If you do not give your "konrai" garland, the moon coming in
the evening sky will burn me, the dark nightfall will kill me.
Come soon! *

4. I have got the never failing grace of Arunachala, who has
removed all my fears.  With great love, I shall chant his name
and compose poems everyday, at the gates of all houses in
Tiruvannamalai.  If  the chaps in some houses, are not fit for
liberation, I shall not open my mouth, but merely walk further.


Arunachala Siva.

(*This is a poem of bridal mysticism.  The poet considers himself
as a maid and seek her lover's arrival with a garland.  This is
called Nayaki Nayaka bhavam in poetry.  All the poems
in Saint Manikkavachakar's book, Tiru Chitrambala Kovai, are
expressions of bridal mysticism.  Bhagavan Ramana's Arunachala
Akshara Mana Malai, is also a poem of bridal mysticism.)
