ammaskartik's question:
« on: January 31, 2013, 04:47:46 PM »
Dear ammaskartik,

Sometime back you asked, about Tamizh usage for Atma etc., I also told you that the Sanskrit word Bhakti is written in Tamizh
as Batthi. Here is an example of Arunagiri Nathar's song on Ratnagiri Murugan:

Song 567 - baththiyAl yAnunai (rathnagiri)

baththiyAl yAnunaip ...... palakAlum
     patriyE mAthirup ...... pugazh pAdi

muththanA mARenaip ...... peruvAzhvin
     mutthiyE sErvadharkku ...... aruLvAyE

uththama adhAna saR ...... guNarnEyA
     oppilA mAmaNik ...... girivAsA

viththagA nyAnasath ...... thinipAdhA
     vetrive lAyudhap ...... perumAlE.

......... Meaning .........

baththiyAl yAnunai: With utmost devotion, I should pray

palakAlum patriyE: holding You firmly in mind for a long time; and

mAthirup pugazh pAdi: I should sing Your great praise.

muththanA mARenai: To guide me to become a liberated soul

peruvAzhvin mutthiyE sErvadharkku: and to enable me to reach eternal bliss (Sivagathi) in this life,

aruLvAyE: You have to grant me Your Grace!

uththama adhAna: Those who firmly hold on to all lofty values,

saR guNarnEyA: such virtuous people have You as their Friend!

oppilA mA maNik girivAsA: You reside in MaNikgiri (Rathnagiri*) which is great and without comparison.

viththagA: Oh Learned One!

nyAnasaththi nipAdhA: You imprint the Knowledge of Your grace on us!

vetrive lAyudha: You hold the victorious Spear as Your weapon!

perumAlE.: Oh Great One!


Arunachala Siva.

Thank you. Another example would be Brahman is spelt and translated brammam, etc.. in tamil text. Like in Anma Bodham, Correct?

Aum Namah Shivaya.

Dear ammaskartik,

Yes. There is no 'ha' in Tamizh. Hence it is written as Brammam and also pronounced like that only.

Arunachala Siva.
