வாசித்துக் காணொ ணாதது பூசித்துக் கூடொ ணாதது
     வாய்விட்டுப் பேசொ ணாதது ...... நெஞ்சினாலே

மாசர்க்குத் தோணொ ணாதது நேசர்க்குப் பேரொ ணாதது
     மாயைக்குச் சூழொ ணாதது ...... விந்துநாத

ஓசைக்குத் தூர மானது மாகத்துக் கீற தானது
     லோகத்துக் காதி யானது ...... கண்டுநாயேன்

யோகத்தைச் சேரு மாறுமெய்ஞ் ஞானத்தைப் போதி யாயினி
     யூனத்தைப் போடி டாதும ...... யங்கலாமோ

ஆசைப்பட் டேனல் காவல்செய் வேடிச்சிக் காக மாமய
     லாகிப்பொற் பாத மேபணி ...... கந்தவேளே

ஆலித்துச் சேல்கள் பாய்வய லூரத்திற் காள மோடட
     ராரத்தைப் பூண்ம யூரது ...... ரங்கவீரா

நாசிக்குட் ப்ராண வாயுவை ரேசித்தெட் டாத யோகிகள்
     நாடிற்றுக் காணொ ணாதென ...... நின்றநாதா

நாகத்துச் சாகை போயுயர் மேகத்தைச் சேர்சி ராமலை
     நாதர்க்குச் சாமி யேசுரர் ...... தம்பிரானே.


In the above Thiruppugazh,Arunagiriar describes how difficult to  realize God for an ordinary man who is covered by illusion when he is born in this world.I have written about this in my  earlier posting.Vallalar describes this in his master piece"ARUT PERUN JOTHI AHAVAL" how maya is preventing us from  knowing God(This is explained in  my previous posting published on  3rd  Feb 2015( The divine light shown  on the full moon day at Vadalur(T.nadu -S.A dt)&he has described how to overcome these difficulties In his"JEEVA KARUNYA OZHUKKAM"  which is also published in my earlier posting.Realization of God is not possible by reading books,by doing poojas(worshiping). indescribable by words,unknown to impure minded persons & impossible to dislodge from good minded(in heart) devotee.Maya can't catch hold of God(it is his servant) .Some persons try very much hard by controlling their breathe called Kriya Yoga & awakening Kundalini  Power to realize God but  then God  eludes them.With out knowing the straight ways-it  is difficult to know him.That was the million dollar question  youth Vivekananda asked every one.Only Sr.Ramakrishna Pramahamsa ,his Guru answered his question  & made him realize God.Arunagiriar requests Lord Muruga to teach him  the  correct way to realize Him (மெய்ஞானம்)as he is the Guru for Siva( Swaminadhan) explained in Swamimalai Thiruppugazh.Swamy Krupanandha Variar who is an expert in Thiruppugazh, Siva  & other Puranas explains this very  beautifully.Arunagiriar  gives a hint when singing about Valli (consort of Muruga).Valli is jeevathma like us.If we are matured enough like Valli(sincere thinking of God& a strong desire to  unite with him neglecting worldly desires)Murugan(Paramatma)himself would come in search of us &unite with Him).Valli guarding millet farm-We have to drive away  desires(valli driving away  birds).Share with you many things in forth coming posts.
