(Verse 4.053 was skipped and 4.054 was given - the error is omitted.)


The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Navukkarasar on Siva,
in the temple of Tiruvarur - Poon Kovil.  This is in 4.053 of Saiva Canon:

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

குழல்வலங் கொண்ட சொல்லாள்
  கோலவேற் கண்ணி தன்னைக்
கழல்வலங் கொண்டு நீங்காக்
  கணங்களக் கணங்க ளார
அழல்வலங் கொண்ட கையான்
  அருட்கதிர் எறிக்கும் ஆரூர்
தொழல்வலங் கொண்டல் செய்வான்
  தோன்றினார் தோன்றி னாரே.

The groups of devotees who do not leave going from left to right, the feet of the Goddess who has beautiful eyes
like the Spear, and who speaks words which are sweeter than the music of the flute.  Those groups are fully
satisfied. Siva,  who holds a fire as a mark of victory, and those who are born, in order to worship and go from
left to right Tiruvarur, which radiates rays of grace.  They are fit to be considered to be born as human beings,
others, though they exist, will be considered as dead.

Arunachala Siva,

தெண்டிரை தேங்கி ஓதஞ்
  சென்றடி வீழுங் காலைத்
தொண்டிரைத் தண்டர் கோனைத்
  தொழுதடி வணங்கி யெங்கும்
வண்டுகள் மதுக்கள் மாந்தும்
  வலம்புரத் தடிகள் தம்மைக்
கொண்டுநற் கீதம் பாடக்
  குழகர்தாம் இருந்த வாறே.


Where the clear waves become stagnant and the water in them surge and fall at the feet of the God, the devotees
making a roaring noise paying obeisance to the feet of the God who is the Master of the devas, and worshppping
Him with joined hands, everywhere meditating in their hearts the God in Tiru Valampuram, where the bees drink
different kinds of honey.  How wonderful a sight it is that the youth was seated when they sang songs of praise.


Arunachala Siva.

காயிரும் பொழில்கள் சூழ்ந்த
 கழுமல வூரர்க் கம்பொன்
ஆயிரங் கொடுப்பர் போலும்
  ஆவடு துறைய னாரே.


All the people of the big and wide world will bow before His lotus feet.  He places the big and rushing Ganga
in His spreading matted locks.  The Lord in Tiru Avaduthurai,  will gave one thousand gold coins to Jnana Sambandhar, whose birth-place is Kazhumalam, surrounded by big gardens bearing fruits .

வீற்றினை யுடைய னாகி
  வெடுவெடுத் தெழுந்த வன்றன்
ஆற்றலை அழிக்க வல்லார்

To convince the demon, who committed evil acts and appeared biting the lips with the teeth in anger though
he was told to give up the idea quickly going to Him without heeding that advice Nandii and Ravanan's ministers
advised him to desist from lifting the mountain, Kailash, thinking only of his own greatness. Siva in Aval Ival Nallur,
has the strength of destroying the strength of that demon, who rose laughing boisterously.

Arunachala Siva.

நேசமிக் கன்பி னாலே
  நினைமின்நீர் நின்று நாளுந்
தேசமிக் கான் இருந்த
  திருஇரா மேச்சு ரமே.


Having destroyed the demon, Ravana,  who were not able to remove even the attachments, the temple established by
Mahavishnu, whose incarnation is Rama, by his spiritual knowledge and worshipped by him with suitable flowers of excellent fragrance.  People of this world!  You daily meditate upon Rameswaram,  where Siva who is the effulgent light stays, for a long time, with love born out of excessive affections.

Arunachala Siva.
