Thiruppugal song(Swamimalai) - 1.

In this beautiful song sung in 4th camping place(நான்காம் படை வீடு - திருவேரகம் என்கிற சுவாமி மலை) Arunagiriar requests the most essential things that are required for a man to lead a comfortable life.Not only worldly comforts but also the wisdom to realize God &get salvation.See how he is requesting Lord Muruga.Before that let us look into an interesting happening. One day God of creation-Brahma goes to meet Lord Siva at  Mount Kailash(Himalayas),He sees Child Muruga & thinks that he is only a small boy with little wisdom.Without acknowledging him he gets the permission from Nandhi Devar(Bullock Faced faced person who is acting as a security officer for Lord Siva-He is not an ordinary person.He has learnt  Holy hymns from Lord Siva Himself &he can fight an army as a single person & is called a symbol of Dharma -  all good deeds)to meet Lord Siva.Brahma returns after meeting Siva, sees Child Muruga,Muruga just asks Brahma,the creator of world,what is the meaning of the word "AUM"(ஓம் )which is an important mantra associated with creation of this world.Brahma falters &could not explain the meaning for this & gets a light beating in his head  from  Child Muruga.Murugan puts him in a jail & takes over the job of creation from Brahma.This is brought to the knowledge of  Murugan's  father Siva,Siva asks his son why Brahma was jailed & Muruga replies that brahma does n't know the meaning of " AUM".Then Siva asks his son Muruga whether he knows the meaning for"ஓம்" . Muruga tells Siva that it should be told properly as  an elderly teacher(குரு )teaches his  student.So Siva takes a student's position & The child tells  the meaning of  "ஓம்"  in his father's ears.Siva as a father was pleased to know his child's expertise in Holy Hymns.From then on wards,Child Muruga was called as"Swaminadhan"(Guru  to God himself).This is represented in the place" Swamimalai" a temple constructed in in an elevated place from the ground level.Murugan is fond of dwelling in hilly places.Then Brahma was released from the jail & handed over his  job of creation.In later days demon king Sura padman also under evaluates the power of  Muruga as a child & you  know what happened.Let us see this incident through our saint's Thiruppugazh song. Let us see it in the next posting .
