ULLadu Narpadu - 18
« on: April 04, 2010, 11:05:13 AM »
Muruganar has got some more verses in Guru Vachaka Kovai, on the
subject of the second invocatory verse of ULLadu Narpadu.

Verse 509:- For God, whose very nature is grace, ignorance is unknown. His lotus feet rest on the pedestal of true knowledge
and the golden sandals of hjis feet are the Upanishads.  For the

Verse 510:- Those fortunate ones who have beheld in their
Heart the flowery feet of the Lord that glow with transcendent
purity will shine as Jnana, full of divine lustre, as their polluting
inauspicious proclivities (vasanas) are reduced to nothing.

Verse 511:  Having realized that demonic qualities (asura sambat)

that clarifies, destroying ignorance.  If devotion, genuine love, is
firmly established towards the feet of Siva, then, through the
support of that divine grace, the non dual Jnana that is exteremly
hard to attain will become easily attainable.

Verse 513:-  By lovingly establishing the feet of the Lord firmly
in the Heart, once and for all, the knot of delusion may be destroyed.  Then, once it is destroyed, the heart-lotus blossoms
and you can clearly experience the light of pure being, supreme

Verse 514:- If the head of the jiva (the ego) unites and becomes
with the feet of the Lord, Siva, the jiva will, having merged, shine
wholly as Sivam (Awareness) beause when the insignificant ego
dies, the jiva abides in the state of pure being as the motionless
