To Get A Good Family Life
Thavalae ival engal sankaranar manai mangalamaam
Avalae avar thamakku annaiyum aayinal aagaiyinal
Ivalae kadavular yavarkkum maelai iraiviyum aam
Thuvalaen inioru dheivamundaga meith thondu seidhae
My Mother Abhirami! Spouse of Lord Sankara!
Destroyer of evils! She, His Mother also
In the dual role! Goddess the supreme,
Greatest Deity of the Gods and Goddesses
With stature unparallel! Me ministering other forms
With misconceptions of service to them
Pining for grace therein,
Conduct incongruous, hence forlorn!
Our Abhirami is Lord Sankaran’s loving consort; she is his mother also; She is the supreme Goddess also; so I will not pine for the grace of other forms of Gods doing service to them.
Two aspects are to be noticed;
1) Abhirami is the Consort and Mother of Sankara
2) She is the Supreme Goddess
When everything is “She” only then the first point is answered; when there is no second then there can not be duality in form and performance; (Advaitha philosophy) : many scriptures say wife is all…she is the mistress, she is the caring mother, she is the faithful friend, she is the loyal servant, she is the trusted soldier, she is a close confidant; so this wife acting as mother should not be a surprise
Coming to the second point of Supremacy, one parable of Shri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa is worth mentioning: a farmer wanted water for his plants and he started digging a well; someone suggested that the space next to his field would yield better results; farmer abandoned the first one halfway and went for the second; again third opinion came so again he discontinued the second and went for the third…in this process the farmer never succeeded in his mission of getting water; whoever is the reader of this stanza. a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian, a Jain, a Buddhist ….an Atheist should continue to follow their high ideals to get the fruits of their service/meditation/devotion single pointedly. As Advaitha philosophy suggests there nothing called the second; “ Thatvamasi” you are that; “ Aham Brahmasmi”…I am the Brahman…the Supreme…
…..point is one has to elevate to that level of the Supreme Mother/Father…I feel “Love” is the only prescription for achieving that goal
