The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Navukkarasar, on Siva,
in the temple of Tiruk Kovalur - Veerasthanam.  This is in 4.069 of Saiva Canon.

This temple is in Tiruk Kovalur taluk, Villupuram district.  One can go by bus from Villupuram.

This is one of the 8 places of heroic sports of Siva.  Here He killed Andhakasuran.

Siva - Veerasthanewararaa.

Uma -  Sivananda Valli.

Holy tree - Konrai tree.

Holy tirtham - PeNNai river.

செத்தையேன் சிதம்ப நாயேன்
   செடியனேன் அழுக்குப் பாயும்
பொத்தையே போற்றி நாளும்
  புகலிடம் அறிய மாட்டேன்
எத்தைநான் பற்றி நிற்கேன்
  இருளற நோக்க மாட்டாக்
கொத்தையேன் செய்வ தென்னே
  கோவல்வீ ரட்ட னீரே.

I am like the dry rubbish.  I am a mean person like the dog.  I am full of bad odor.  Protecting the body which is
full of holes and in which dirt spreads, I am incapable of knowing the place of my refuge. What should I catch hold
of and be steadfast?  Alas!  What is to be done by me who is blind in intellect and unable to see things, without
ignorance. O Siva in Kovalur Veerasthanam!

Arunachala Siva.

or Mayiladuthurai to reach the temple. 

This was a desert earlier.  Tiru Jnana Sambandhar sang a Padigam and it became a sea shore with palm
and coconut trees growing.

முற்றுணை யாயி னானை
  மூவர்க்கு முதல்வன் றன்னைச்
சொற்றுணை ஆயி னானைச்
  சோதியை ஆத ரித்து
உற்றுணர்ந் துருகி யூறி
  உள்கசி வுடைய வர்க்கு
நற்றுணை யாவர் போலும்
  நனிபள்ளி அடிக ளாரே.

Siva, who is the companion from time immemorial, the origin of the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Rudra, who can
be understood by the help of knowledge of Agamas,  He only helps to understand the correct meaning of Vedas,
cherishing with love the light for those whose hearts melt being immersed having realized Him intimately,
Siva is in Nanipalli, is the good companion and guide.

Arunachala Siva.

The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Navukkarasar on Siva,
in a general way.  This is called the Padigam of 'Nenjam ninaintha Isanai..' 'the heart/ the mind, that remembers
and contemplates on Isa, Siva.  This is in 4.074 of Saiva Canon.

There are ten verses in this Padigam. I propose to give all the ten verses, with English meanings.

Verse 1 of Nenjam ninaintha Isanai...  Saiva Canon 4.074


முத்தினை மணியைப் பொன்னை
  முழுமுதற் பவள மேய்க்குங்
கொத்தினை வயிர மாலைக்
  கொழுந்தினை அமரர் சூடும்
வித்தினை வேத வேள்விக்
  கேள்வியை விளங்க நின்ற
அத்தனை நினைந்த நெஞ்சம்
  அழகிதா நினைந்த வாறே.

My mind which thought of Siva, the pearl, the precious stone the gold the bunch which resembles the coral
which has a stem.  The shoot of the garland made of diamond.  The seed which is the cause of all things and
which is worn on the head by the immortals.  The Vedas  are learnt orally and that describe sacrifices,
and the Father who is eminent knows how magnificently did the mind think. Contemplate on Him in your mind!

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 4 of Nenjam Ninaintha Isanai, Saiva Canon 4.074.

செருத்தனை யருத்தி செய்து
  செஞ்சரஞ் செலுத்தி யூர்மேல்
கருத்தனைக் கனக மேனிக்
  கடவுளைக் கருதும் வானோர்க்
கொருத்தனை யொருத்தி பாகம்
  பொருத்தியும் அருத்தி தீரா
நிருத்தனை நினைந்த நெஞ்சம்
  நேர்பட நினைந்த வாறே.


He desired war.  He is the God, who had as His idea of the destruction of the cities by discharging a straight arrow.
He is the God who has the body glittering like gold.  He is the Sole Master of the celestial beings who meditate on Him.
He is the dancer whose love is insatiable, though He has united in His body as  half the lady goddess.
What a wonder if  I  thought of Him worthily!
