பெண்ணமருந் திருமேனி யுடையீர்பிறங்கு சடைதாழப்
பண்ணமரும் நான்மறையே பாடியாடல் பயில்கின்றீர்
திண்ணமரும் பைம்பொழிலும் வயலுஞ்சூழ்ந்த திருநல்லூர்
மண்ணமருங் கோயிலே கோயிலாக மகிழ்ந்தீரே.

He is having the lady goddess on the left of His form. He is having well spread matted locks. He is
chanting the four Vedas with melodious music. He is in Tiru Nallur where dense paddy fields and gardens
are surrounding the temple of Tiru Nallur.

Arunachala Siva.

நலங்கொள் முத்தும் மணியும் அணியுந் திரளோதங்
கலங்கள் தன்னில் கொண்டு கரைசேர் கலிக்காழி
வலங்கொள் மழுவொன் றுடையாய் விடையா யெனவேத்தி
அலங்கல் சூட்ட வல்லார்க் கடையா அருநோயே.

You are in Sirkazhi, where in the sea the boats bring good pearls and rubies (from other countries

Those who praise these and place garlands on you will not have any future birth which is a bhava rogam.

பைந்தண் மாதவி சோலை சூழ்ந்த பாசூரே.

He is in the mind, the head and the body of all devotees. He is of true words. In rainy season, He comes
and stays in my mind. I call Him O my Child, O my bridegroom! and He stays happily in Pasur where
the green madhavi creppers flourish around the temple and in the town.

The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung on Siva in the temple of Tiru
Alavao, Madurai,  This is in 2.66. of Saiva Canon.

This is called Tiru Neetru Padigam, the padigam of holy ashes.  This was sung by the Saint when he
was curing the Pandyan King, when he was suffering from colic pain. The saint thus proved that the Jainas'
mantras were useless and the mantra (the song) of Siva are greater to cure diseases.

The location of the temple, the names of Siva and Uma and the holy tree, the holy tirtham -- all these
details have been given in the first Padigam of Tiru Alavai, Madurai see elsewhere in this serial post.

மந்திர மாவது நீறு வானவர் மேலது நீறு
சுந்தர மாவது நீறு துதிக்கப் படுவது நீறு
தந்திர மாவது நீறு சமயத்தி லுள்ளது நீறு
செந்துவர் வாயுமை பங்கன் திருஆல வாயான் திருநீறே.


The holy ash is a great mantra, that is, even while thinking of it, will cure people from ailments.  The holy
ashes are worn even by devas.  The holy ash is a beautiful thing to wear.  It is prayed to as form of Siva.
The holy ash is praised in all tantras and mantras and it is the mark of Siva religion. It is this holy ash
of Siva, concorporate with Uma of coral red like lips. 


Arunachala Siva.

கண்ணுமோர் பாக முடையார் கங்கை சடையிற் கரந்தார்
பெண்ணுமோர் பாக முடையார் பெரும்புலி யூர்பிரி யாரே.
