Skandar Andati
« on: November 26, 2008, 11:29:23 AM »
Arunagiri Natha's Skandar Andati has got many more beautiful
verses.  The Verse 83 reads as under:

Theera- kamala,  O, Brahma who was born from the lotus belly
   button of Vishnu, has written something on my head and even
   after knowing that it is all my prarabdha,
Thee- ragam- alamena, Fully knowing, that all these bad desires,
   would do me harm, why am I not thinking about their futility?   
Theer - agama- lagu, O Skanda, you have told me the Pure Veda
   mantra, beyond all the Vedas and Agamas!  Agni thought that
   he will be able to carry the sparks from Siva's eyes!
Thee - ragam - alamara,  He was burnt by those sparks and he
   cried, when you decided to teach him a lesson!
