Guru Namasivaya's Poems: (11)
« on: September 24, 2008, 11:52:33 AM »
51.  O Annamalai!  You took the poison and retained in your
throat so that the devas and the worlds will survive.  If your
devotees praise your valour, you become happy.  You are
the god with snow white holy ash on you body and grace
the devotees ever.

52. O Annamalai!  You also stay in Thillai, Kasi, Tiru Arur,
Madurai and Nellai (Tirunelveli), as a great effulgence. 
You are praised by the ancient Vedas.  You dance in the
hearts of such devotees.

53. O Annamalai!  You are the concorporate consort of Unnamualai,
the Moola Prakrti, giver of great gifts, the Mother of all living
beings, praised by Vedas, the giver of Siva Jnana.

54.  O Annamalai!  You went as a go-between to Sundaramurthy.
You do anything to please your devotees.  You burnt Manmatha
and you delivered Tamil in the group of Sangam poets in South
Madurai.*

(* The story is "Siva, the burner of the Tripura and having  red matted locks and his son, who pierced the Krouncha Hill, with his spear"
were the first two poets of Tamil Sangam (Conclve of Tamil)
in South Madurai.  This South Madurai is not the present Madurai,
in Tamil Nadu.  It was in the southern most part of ancient Tamil
Nadu, which stretched upto shores of Australia.  This was called the Continent of Lemuria, by ancient Greeks like Ptolemy.  This large
continent which stretched from Australia to Tiruttani, was having
three Sangams, in three different periods of antiquity. The first Tamil
Conclave was in South Madurai, which was headed by Siva and his
son Skanda.  After a Tsunami, when a large souther portion was
engulfed by the ocean, the Second Tamil Conclave was in
Kabada Puram, which was headed by Sage Agasthya.  After further
flooding by the oceans, the Third Tamil Sangam was established
in the present Madurai, for which Poet Nakkirar was the head.
This theory of Lemuria Continent, has been accepted and explained by Professor Arnold Toynbeee, in his Study of History, 2 volumes)

55.  O Annamalai!  You golden head and golden feet were searched by Brahma  and Vishnu, when you stood as a large column of golden effulgence.  But you are visible to the normal eyes of devotees
like a Hil.  You also appeared as Guhai Namasivaya, my Guru,
who severed my desires.
