Guhai Namasivaya's Poems: (58)
« on: September 22, 2008, 12:42:19 PM »
Arnagiri Andati: continues....

1. Those devotees, O Lord of Arunagiri, who listen to the songs
of the great three* with great faith, such miracles that happened
in their lives* like a heavy stone floating on the ocean, the
crocodile giving out the child that has been eaten by it, and
the skeletons held in a pot, coming back to life as a young girl,
will surely happen.

(* The Great Three, are called Tirunavukkarasar, Sundaramurthi,
and Tiru Jnana Sambandhar.  The miracles were done by these
three saints.  In Tirunavukkarasar's life, when he was tied to
a heavy stone and thrown into ocean, by the Pallava King, who
was a Jaina, the stone floated and the poet did not drown!
In Sundaramurthi's case, he brought back to life, the son of
a devotee from the liver of a crocodile.  In Jnana Sambandhar's
life, he sang in praise of Siva, and brought back to life a girl,
whose skeletons were kept in a pot, by a devotee, awaiting the
saint's arrival to Mylapore, Chennai.   There are four great saints
of Siva, of which the above three are the first three.  The fourth
one is Saint Manikkavachagar.  The foursome are called the 'great
four'.  Bhagavan Sri Ramana is called an avatara of Jnana
Sambandha, by Kavyakanta Ganapati Muni, in Sri Ramana Gita.)

2. O Arunachala!  Only those who are devoted to you and fall
at your feet,  can have their tapas and sacrifices completed
successfully.  How can one forget Daksha, who did not pray to
you but tried to do the sacrifice and was killed or beheaded
and a goat's head was placed instead!

(In this poem, Daksha is said to have had a goat's head,
when he was beheaded.  It is also said in the case of Brahma)

Arunachala Siva.
