Guru Namasivaya's Poems: (10)
« on: September 24, 2008, 11:34:20 AM »
46.  O Annamalai!  You are the Father of devas and their gods,
Brahma and Vishnu, and all the lives and sages in Tiruvnnamalai.
But you are a destitute, wiithout father and mother!*
What is this glory?

(* Saint Manikkavachagar also says in Tiruchazal,  a deacd on
praising and blaming Siva, " You are a destitute without father
and mother.  But when you are angry, you will burnt the whole
universe into dust!")

47.  O Annamalai!  For the devout disciples, who do daily Siva
poojas,  you accept those poojas and remain happy.  You are
ready to be trapped in the net of love.  You remain in the hearts
of true devotees who have conquered desires.

48. O Annamalai!  You are praised by my Guru, who daily pray
to you with gratitude and you accept his flowers with relish.
You are always searched by the two.  You dance in Thillai

(* In Thillai, Chidamabaram, you show the cosmic dance
as Nataraja.) 

49.  O Annamalai!  You show your golden feet for the devotees who
steadfastly meditate on you.  But  you remained elusive to Brahma
and Vishnu.  You are the form of Panchakashara and are never
leaving Unnamulai, your concorpoate consort, whom you like most.

50.  O Annamalai!  Your feet could not be searched by dull witted
Vihsnu, who was looking for them in all the seven under worlds.
Those feet are saving me, to have no worries on any day. 
You rule me as my Sadguru.

Arunachala Siva.
