Ramana Maharshi suggests to sing songs from Tiruppugazh
« on: June 28, 2010, 01:31:05 PM »
SHRI BHAGAVAN’S GRACE By Gouriammal

One instance of his grace to his devotees is his recommendation of two songs from Tiruppugazh to help them get their daughters married. The devotees of Bhagavan believed firmly that it was enough to sing the two songs from Tiruppugazh before Bhagavan to have the marriage arranged in the best way possible. There is another song in Tiruppugazh in which God is invited to come to the house as a newborn child. When anyone approached Bhagavan praying for a child he would tell them to sing that song.

This Tiruppugazh song recommended by Bhagavan Ramana to Gauriamamal is quite famous.  This was earnestly sung by some
devotees who had difficulties in getting their daughters married,
and in some cases, even the would-be-brides themselves took it
up in all faith and sang these songs.

One such song is given in full by Sri Devaraja Mudaliar in his book,
"Thaayum neeye, thanthaiyum neeye" [You are the Mother and You
are the Father.]

The song reads as under:

On the peacock that resembles,
the blueness of the rain clouds,
I saw your coming and I seek You,
I, this poor me, am mad with love for You,
Please give me your bridal garland and grace me! 
O the Courageous, who shot the Javelin on the Krouncha hill,
The very god of death to the demons, are You!
You are the purport of all the four Vedas.
"I -I"  - you beat your chest to devotees.

Arunachala Siva.
