The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Navukkarasar, on Siva,
in the temple of Tiru Naraiyur.  This is in 5.055 of Saiva Canon.

This temple is in Kumbakonam taluk, Thanjavur district.  One can go by bus from Kumbakonam
or Thanjavur to reach the temple.     

Siva - Soundhareswarar.

Uma -Tripura Sundari.

This is the birth place of Nambi Andar Nambi, the author of Tiruth Thondar Tiruvandati.  This is an
elaboration of Sundaramurthi's Tiruth ThoNdath Thogai.

The image of Pollap Pillaiyar is quite famous here. (Polla - PoLLa. This means that the image
was not made out of a sculptor, by using any thistle.  It is Swayambu.   


வீறு தானுடை வெற்பன் மடந்தையோர்
கூற னாகிலுங் கூன்பிறை சூடிலும்
நாறு பூம்பொழில் நாரையூர் நம்பனுக்
காறு சூடலும் அம்ம அழகிதே.


Though Siva, who has on one half the form, daughter of the Himavan, of distinctive excellence and
He wears on His head a curved crescent moon.  He is bearing the river Ganga. He is wonderfully
beautiful. The God, Siva, is  in Tiru Naraiyur which has fragrant flower gardens.

Arunachala Siva.

நக்க னைத்தொழ நம்வினை நாசமே.


Siva has on His half form, Uma whose eyes are always coated with collyrium.
He has on His hand a deer and a battle-axe.  He has red lustre.  One should  worship with joined hands
Siva, who is naked, in Tiruk KOLili,  which is surrounded by gardens in which cranes live.  Then our karmas
will be destroyed.

Arunachala Siva.

செந்நெ லார்வயல் சூழ்திருக் கோளிலி
மன்ன னேயடி யேனை மறவலே.


The King, Siva, is in Tiruk KOlili,  surrounded by field in which red colored superior variety of paddy grows!
I did not at all think of you early in my life. I did not praise your lotus red feet even now.
Do not forget me who is your slave.

Arunachala Siva.

The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Navukkarasar, on Siva,
in Tirup PazhaiyaaRai, Vata ThaLi.  This is in 5.058 of Saiva Canon.

The temple is in Kumbakonam Taluk, Thanjavur District.  One can go by bus from Thanjavur or
Kumbakonam to reach the temple.

Siva  - Dharmapureeswarar.

Uma - Vimala Nayaki.

Holy tree - Bhilva tree.

Holy tirtham - Viswa Tirtham, a tank.

This temple is built on a higher level called Matak Kovil.  When Tiru Navukkarasar went to this
temple, the Jain monks using their mantras, made the temple to disappear. The saint then
prayed to Siva here and made the temple to reappear.  Hence, the saint mentions about
Jain monks here in this Padigam.   

தலையெ லாம்பறிக் குஞ்சமண் கையருள்
நிலையி னான்மறைத் தான்மறைக் கொண்ணுமே
அலையி னார்பொழி லாறை வடதளி
நிலையி னானடி யேநினைந் துய்ம்மினே.



The lowly people of Jains who pull out all the hairs on their heads, if they hide the temple by their
hostile minds, is it possible to hide?  People of the world!  Save yourselves by fixing your thoughts
on the feet of the Lord who is eternal in Tirup PazhaiyaaRai Vata ThaLi, which has plenty of water by
the side.

Arunachala Siva.

The following verse and the Padigam has been composed and sung by Tiru Navukkarasar, on
Siva, in the temple of Tiru MaaRperu.  This is in 5.059 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 Tiru MaaRpeRu see this serial post elsewhere.

When Vishnu fought with Dadisi Rishi, His disc became blunt.  He found that the disc is with Siva,
with which He killed Jalandhara.  Hence, Vishnu prayed to Siva, with a thousand lotus flowers.
When one lotus was short to complete the Puja, He placed His eye in lieu of the lotus.  Siva became
happy and blessed Him with a disc again. 

பொருமாற் றின்படை வேண்டிநற் பூம்புனல்
வருமாற் றின்மலர் கொண்டு வழிபடுங்
கருமாற் கின்னருள் செய்தவன் காண்டகு
திருமாற் பேறு தொழவினை தேயுமே.

In the manner of fighting with enemies, requiring a weapon, all the acts, good and bad, will become
weak.  If one worships beautiful Tiru MaRpeRu,  of Siva,  who granted a weapon to the black Vishnu,
when He worshipped Siva with flowers and brilliant water which flowed in the river.

Arunachala Siva.

ஏது மொன்று மறிவில ராயினும்
ஓதி அஞ்செழுத் தும்முணர் வார்கட்குப்
பேத மின்றி அவரவர் உள்ளத்தே
மாதுந் தாமும் மகிழ்வர்மாற் பேறரே.

If people who do not know even a little about anything,  to those who understand the meaning of
the  mantram  of five letters, (Panchkasharam),  chanting them, without making any distinction,
in the hearts of such people individually, the Lord in Tiru MaRperu, will dwell with joy, along with
the lady goddess, Uma.


Arunachala Siva.

மைத்தூ ரும்வினை மாற்றவும் வல்லரே.


All those who pray [invoking] the feet of Siva in Tiru Arisil Karai  Puthur on the bank of the river Arisil,
which has water on which pearls move slowly.  Praying to Siva will help us with the ability to remove
the karmas, which have mastery over the soul, and are black in color and are combined with the five sense-perceptions which take upon themselves untruth and lead to destruction.

Arunachala Siva.
