To Reach Heights in Yoga

Tamil Transliteration

vaazhum padiyondru kandu kondaen manaththe yoruvar
veezhum padiyandru villum padiyandru vaelainilam
aezhum paruvarai ettum ettamal iravu paghal
soozhum sudarkku naduvae kidandhu sudarkindradhae

Translation

Lifeline for glorious life,
Visible to eyes welling wisdom
Not an apparition created by mind’s eye
Inexplicable by vociferous voicing;
That splendid light glittering
Stands beyond those seven seas,
Seven worlds and eight mountains
Shining in the spheres of the Sun and the Moon!
Simple meaning:

I identified the life line for glorious living using my wisdom; it is not an imagination of the uncertain mind; it can not explained in so many words; that splendid light is beyond the seven seas, seven worlds and eight mountains; it sparkles in the spheres of the sun and the Moon

Commentary:
the Seven Seas
Refer to the North Pacific Ocean, the South Pacific Ocean, the North Atlantic Ocean, the South Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Antarctic Ocean, and the Arctic Ocean; When people use the phrase 'Seven Seas',
it is different from different time periods. It's mostly a phrase, and there isn't a definite answer for, 'What are the seven seas? ' In Medieval European literature, the Seven Seas referred to any seven of the following eleven bodies of water: the Adriatic Sea, the Aegean Sea, the Arabian Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Irish Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the North Sea, the Persian Gulf, and the Red Sea

The seven worlds in the Hindu philosophy are:
Boologam-7 th wall wherein we all live
Buvarlogam-6 th wall is the land of dreams
Suvarlogam-5 th wall is the land of the enlightened
Maharlogam-4 th wall is the opening to the heaven
Janalogam-3 rd wall is the world of the purified
Thabologam-2 nd wall is the threshold between complete knowledge and partial knowledge
Satyalogam-1 st wall is the land of complete and total truth

The eight mountains

Religious life has always been about being taken up to mountains by the God who leads us always beyond ourselves. It is about reaching heights we thought we could never achieve, by contemplating the valleys below us in the gleam given off by the vision of the heights. Indeed, think about mountains we must.
Mountains
'If you wish to see the valleys, climb to the mountain top, ' the mystic Kahlil Gibran wrote. 'Then, close your eyes and think! '
Mountains in Greek, Hebrew, Roman and Asian religious literature - are those places on earth that are nearest to heaven. Mountains are places where the human could touch the divine. Mountains are places where people could contact God. Mountains are places where a person would go seeking a special relationship with God.
The Buddhists, the Hindus, the Sufi, all provide for intense periods of spiritual instruction in religious communities - not for the sake of perpetual profession in particular religious congregations but for the sake of serious preparation for the development of the spiritual person in the world
There are eight mountains in Israel's history of life with God, where the people are brought to challenge and to growth - Sinai, Gilboa, Olive, Moriah, Carmel, Hermon, Gerizim and the Mount of the Beatitudes. It is these mountains that yet today, I believe, challenge us, too. Some of them we climb with daily devotion; some of them, I believe, we have yet to scale if religious life is to be the catalyst, the presence, the prophetic voice in this time that it once was in the past.

1) Sinai is the mountain of spirituality
2 Gilboa is the mountain of letting go that is renewal
3) Olive is the mountain of solidarity with the poor
4) Moriah is the mountain of sacrifice
5) Carmel is the mountain of choice
6) Hermon is a siren call to the Religious communities
7) Gerizim is the mountain of feminism
8) Mount of Beatitude is the mountain of Hoping Heart


Abhirami is beyond the seven seas, seven worlds and eight mountains; this means she cannot be reached by mere knowledge, wisdom, and realization; she is accessible to beyond all these …that is love and love only which makes a mother and sustains a mother;
Also she shines among the shining star—Sun and its reflection moon.
It is unique to find somebody who is within the reach of love and also great.

    as a christian i was not aware of this treasure called ' Abhirami Andhadhi '; now thro' this you have opened the gates of heaven wherein people like me can try to measure the depth of piety to some extent; your ref to various cross religious faiths is wonderful; from now on i will be your fan if you allow me...
