Guru Namasivaya's Poems: (16)
« on: September 24, 2008, 02:26:25 PM »
76.  O Annamalai!  In the presence of everyone in this world,
you took the pain from the arrow of Partha*.  You took the
pain of stones thrown by the great devotee*.  But. how come,
you burnt the god of love, who sent the arrow of flowers?
O the great round Hills, I pray to you.

(*  Partha, Arjuna, hit Siva with his arrow at the time of his penance,
for Pasupata Astara.  A Siva devotee called Sakya Nayanar, to
avoid the king's attention, (he was a Jain) was praying to
Siva Lingam, by throwing stones at Siva's feet.

77. O Annamalai!  You rose to the height of Heavans as a flame
of effulgence.  You took the honey like, green-coloured Unnamulai, as
your consort.  You are the Hills, where on the valleys, elephants
are adorned by the pearls that were given by the bamboo trees.

78.  O Annamalai!  On the the other day, when Ravana tried to
lift Kailash, you crushed him with your toe.   You are the Hills
of divine medicine.  You are the medicine for all the difficulties
of your devotees.

79.  O Annamalai!  You protected Markandeya, by telling Yama,
that he(Markandeya), is always sixteen and is not to be taken.
You stand as the effulgence of light victoriously.    You forget
all the defects of devotees and liberate them.

80.  O Annamalai!  You stood as the column of effulgence beyond
the reach of the two.  You appear as a friend, for the melting
devotees.  You dance for ever.  You drove out Narayana, from the
sacrifice of Daksha, so that he might not be killed.

to be contd....

Arunachala Siva.
