Itho Vaikundam Here is Vaikundam

Itho Vaikundam
Here is Vaikundam

Sri Durgai  chithar

Translated  by

(A very rare  philosophical  prayer  of Sri durgai  chithar)

Vaikundam itho irukkirathu,
Vaanathil ithai   yeen thedugiraai veenaai,

Vaikunda  is here,
Why are you searching   for it in the sky

Sorgamum, narakamum , nam manam than,
Sudanthira paravaikal  nam gunam than,
Inbathil   dukhathai   cherkkathe,
Yini melum   anbai  marakkathe

Our mind is both the hell as well as heaven,
Our character are   the free birds,
Do not mix sorrow with joy,
From now do not forget love

Panpodu pazhakinaal   dukkham illai,
Padhariye  chidarinaal  michamillai,
Kannodu kaanamal   thoongi vittaal,
Kadavulum kadaisiyil kai viduvaar

If we behave with culture, there is no sorrow,
If we  throw with nervousness, nothing would be left,
If without seeing  by  eye, we sleep,
Then even God   will forsake you.

Padippathai  thernthu  padithu vittaal,
Adithidum kaaththum  arivu tharum,
Madi  ghanam indri  nadanthu vittaal,
Adippadai   dukhamum    anuvumillai

If we read    after  proper selection,
Even the  blowing wind will give knowledge,
If we walk without any heavy load,
There will not be an atom of  basic sorrow.

Kan munne  irunthathai  parkkamal,
Kadavulai kaanave   alayaathe,
Vinnukkum  mannukkum  oru paalam,
Vithagi  padappai  jeya durgaa

Without seeing  what  is before your eyes,
Do not wander  to see the god,
A bridge   between earth and heaven,
Is the creation of   the miraculous  Jaya Durga

Nithya kalyani pancha Rathnam of Durgai chithar

Nithya kalyani pancha Rathnam
Five gems about  Goddess  Nithyakalyani)

Durgai  Chithar

Translated by

(The area around the place where we see the Nithyakalyani Ambal temple   at kadayam( temple town 40 km from Tirunelveli  of Tamil Nadu)   now, was once upon a time, a "Bilwa" tree forest. The legend goes on like this: The King of Ayodhya Sree Dasaratha Maharaja was moving through the length and breadth of Bharath and praying at almost all the temples spotted by Him for getting his progeny. Thus he chanced upon the "Bilwa" forest in Kadayam, and while moving into the forest, he found a "Suyambu Lingam" and prayed to Lord Shiva. Thus this Lord was named as "Bilwa Vana Nathar" i.e. Lord of Bilwa forest. This name over a period of time became Sree Vilvaranyeswarar and his consort Nithya Kalyani Amman. There are stone inscriptions, which say that Nayakar's of Madurai developed the temple. Vilva tree is sthala vruksham and theertham is Chakkra theertham, around three hundred years old. If one breaks the Vilva fruit from the sthala vruksham, one can find a Lingam shaped formation inside, which cannot be seen in any other Vilva fruit. The temple is one of the Thevaara Vaippu Sthalam of Lord Siva. The main Raja Gopuram is seven storeys with three prakarams. It is said that the Peetam is a Dharani Peetam. )

This great prayer  is the answer to that question.Prahladha   feels that the God offering him boons, shows  that Prahladha is not a devotee but a merchant .Later thE god blesses him to be the emperor of Asuras . This is contained in Bhagavatha Skanda 7   chapter 10   slokas  2-14)

Mumukshu sthwaam  upaasritha

Please please   do not tempt me ,
Born in   the clan of asuras, I am already after things,
And only due to fear of being  imprisoned by them,
I  depended  on you to get salvation.

Bhavan samsara  bheejeshu,
Hrudaya  grandishu  prabho.

Oh  lord , you might have tempted me,
By the desire for these which are  ,
Roots of Samsara which tie the mind,
Perhaps to show the world, who a real devotee is?

3.Naanyadhhaa  they akhila guro,
Ghatetha karunathmanaa,
Yastha aasisha aasasthe,
Na sa  bruthya sa  vai vanik.

Oh Guru of all, Otherwise  , this ,
Temptation  is not suitable to you,
He who desires boons   from you,
Is not a devotee but a merchant.

4.Aashaasaano  na vai  bruthya,
Swaminyaasisha aathmana,
Na swami bruthyatha swamyam,
Ichchan  yo raaathi chaasisha.

He who  is prepared  to serve some one else,

Who wanting some thing from his servant ,
And fulfills his desires is not God.

THwam chaswamyanapaasraya,
Naanyadhehavayor artho,

And you are god  who does not depend on any one  ,
Just like   the king and his servant ,
We do not have use  of each other.

Luster , memory as well  as practice of truth.

Eligible  to get   salvation.

Please hear the dear  stories that  describe my sports,
Always  wear in  your heart me  who is the God of all,
Who lives  inside all beings and Who is   the one who gives,
Results of all prayers and dedicate  all your actions  to me,
And worship me that away and then you   will become detached.

By  doing good  and pure deeds and let you,
Get detached from your body over t6ime and you,
Who is being praised  even in deva loka will reach me.

Thwayaa geetha midham nara,
Thwaa cha maam cha smaran kaale,
Karma bandhaath  pramuchyathe.

Me as well as you, sing this poem,
And meditate  on you and me in proper time,
Would get detached   from results  of action

Rudra Gita from Bhagavatham

Rudra  Gita from Bhagavatham

Translated  by

(Pracheena  Barhis was a king in the Dynasty of Pruthu.He had  ten sons and they were known as Prachethas.When their father  ordered them   to create human beings, they went to the ocean shore to do penance.They saw  a very pure water  lake near the ocean and they saw Lord Rudra  coming out of the laked.They saluted the God.The god  became  pleased with them and told them like this.(this is contained in  Skandam 4 chapter 24- slokas 27-31 and slokas 33-68) .This is called as Rudra Gita  by some people and as Rudra  geetham  by others. It essentially  is a prayer by Lord Shiva   addressed to Vishnu .
  At the end Lord Shiva tells them, “Lead your life as per your own Dharma and chant this stotra.This prayer  chich is called  as “yogodesam”  should be chanted or heard   as often as possible.If you do it, you will get  divine fame.Among all the fame the greatest is, “Knowledge of God and once you attain it, you would be able to cross  the  difficult to cross ocean of SAmsara.Lord Vishnu would be extremely pleased   with the chanting of this prayer. Lord Shiva finally emphasizes that it is only those devotees who have caught hold of the Lord’s lotus feet who are free from all fear.

Those who follow their allotted Dharma for hundred births,
Reach the Brahma loka and those who do more punyas  than that,

Adho vidhustham purusham santha manthar-,
Bunkthehreeshikai madhu saaragham ya.

That was created  by you by your own powers,
And this purusha, is enjoying  various things, using senses,

And busy always not knowing  “What should be done now?”
Are kept away from committing mistakes, by destroying them,
Like a   hungry Snake searching for food, kills the rat.

35.Kasthwath  padhaabjam vijahaathi panditho,
Yasthe avamana vya maanakethana,
Visankhayaa asmad gururachathi sma yadh,
Vinopapatheem  manava schathudasa

Doubt about his own truth and similarly the fourteen Manus,
Are worshipping you with complete   faith and when things  are like this,
Which intelligent person , who knows that life spent without worshipping you  ,
Is a waste, would neglect  to worship your lotus like feet?

36.Adha  thwamasi no Brahman,
Parmaathman  vipaschithaam,
Viswam  rudha bhayadwastham,
Akoothaschid bhayaa  gathi.

And So  God who is Brahman and Paramathma,
We who know that the world  is in the grip,
Of fear  of time, are  surrendering   to you,
Who is not  affected by   any fear  whatsoever.
