Durga Pooja Celebrations - (4)
« on: October 02, 2008, 02:33:50 PM »
Vallimalai Satchidananda Swamigal was a great Skanda (Murugan)
bkakta and he used to sing Tiruppugazh songs in the presence of
Bhagavan and others.  Ramana Himself is an avatara of Skanda,
to most of us.  There is one poem called Vedichi Kavalane!  Vedichi
means in Tamil, the hunter-girl, Valli, the consort of Skanda.
Kavalane, means the Prtotector or Husband.

One day, Satchidanada Swamigal and other devotees were singing
Vedichi Kavalane in the Hills.  It was hot and all were hungry.
At that time, Bhagavan who also knew Telugu, asked, in humour,
"Ememi Kavalane?", "Enthenthu Kavalane?", meaning in Telugu,
"What are all the things you want?  How much do you want?"
The devotees who understood Teugu, replied "Idlli kavalane,
Vadai Kavalane"  "We want idlis and we went vadais."

Lo and behold!  in the middle of the jungle, someone appeared
with basketfuls of idlis, vadais and large vessels of coffee
and everyone was served with them, to their hearts' contents.

Valli is the Consort of Siva.  In Kaumara, Skanda or Murugan
Himself is Siva and Valli is Uma.  Further, Valli is the obedient
daughter in law of Uma, because Valli is Vishnu's daughter,
and hence she is known to Uma already as her brother's
daughter.       

On this Durga Pooja Celebrations, it is fit to remember Valli,
the Grace of Bhagavan and Muruga, Bhagavan Himself.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear subramanian,

Dear Raju,  Thank you.  Being in Bangalore, which is a multi-
lingual IT city, I know a little of spoken Kannada, but still less
of Telugu.  I used to watch the Siva Karnamrutham discourse
of one scholar in ETV at 6.15 AM everyday.  I have great respect
for this gentleman, who also discoursed on Sri Soundarya Lahari,
earlier.  I can read your English books, of course.  I am available
at C.10 Garadi Apartments, K.R. Road, Basvangudi,Bangalore 560 004.
In case any of you come down to Bangalore, they are all welcome.

Arunachala Siva.
