The Devotees Who Are Beyond - (One of the 63 Siva Saints)
« on: January 13, 2009, 08:57:23 AM »
Sekkizhar then takes up a group of "the devotees who are beyond"
in his own comprehension and knowledge, living at different places
and in different times.  Thus, here, he covers the devotees Siva who
are outside Tamil Nadu, near various temples like Kasi, Amarnath,
Kalahasti, Sri Sailam, and in various small towns and in various times.
He covers in one verse all these Siva devotees, who have prayed to
Siva, through various "margas", paths, like karma, bhakti, yoga and
jnana.
