To Get A Good Family Life

Tamil Transliteration

Thavalae ival engal sankaranar manai mangalamaam
Avalae avar thamakku annaiyum aayinal aagaiyinal
Ivalae kadavular yavarkkum maelai iraiviyum aam
Thuvalaen inioru dheivamundaga meith thondu seidhae

Translation

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!


Simple meaning:

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.

Commentary:

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

    Well explained the principle of 'Advita.' Out of the sea, waves are born, which go back to the sea again. The same water when it raises from the sea is called waves and when it goes back to its place of origin, again it is called sea only. Life is also like this wave. It is born out of Paramatma and takes the shape of Jivatma and when it leaves, it goes back to the same place where it came from. This is the tattva (idea) in brief. Hope, I am correct.

    whatever be the following, the follower should have conviction; after following for certain time, changing the methodology will not bring any result; as prayer/bhakthi are all means to an end...that is to realise that we are part of the infinite...the nameless...the formless..water is available in the ground..we need to dig at a single point and continue to dig...some may get water within 10 feet...some at 20...some at 30 and son..but we should continue to dig at our chosen site only..thats why i thought that it was appropriate to link advaitha and RK..
