To say the truth, Lord Muruga has appeared after a long time here, even I suspect that it is probably for the darshan of Hanuman because, Muruga was not here during the Kumbabisheka. I felt very sorry about that. For Lord Muruga is known for His anger. You all know the stories of how he threw away the family for a small fruit etc. They have played with such a God, Muruga. It wouldn’t be a surprise if tsunami comes when He is not present here. It is worrisome to think about the incidents that might happen. I did speak to Muruga a while back where His face was reddish with anger, though He did bless you all, hugged Hanuman and stood peacefully, I do feel that the happenings here might have frustrated Him.
I am meeting my beloved Lord Muruga after a long time today. I was worshipping and going behind the Three Eyed Lord and others so far. I am not sure if Lord Muruga is angry with me, I don’t know but I just discuss it with you. But even if Muruga gets angry, it will be with a reason. Though He is angry, He will change the next moment. I said it the other day, I say it again here. It is different to be angry and to be sorry. But if Lord Muruga is angry, it will be for the good, but if He is sad, then it is dangerous. I need to know whether He is angry or sad, only after which I could give any clairvoyance, for this day is a great day today. It started with Lord Vinayaka and ended with Lord Hanuman.
I asked to offer a coconut to Lord Vinayaka before you start. I am not sure if you remember or not but the moment you prayed there and came out, you saw Vinayaka Siddha only. Keep it as a starting point. It started with Ganesha and ended with Hanuman. No one knows that Hanuman visits here to see Muruga, have a conversation with him, hug him and go, on the day His star birthday. I had come here at that time and so did you. I saw that wonderful sight of them both when you came. The light which came from inside the sanctum sanctorum touched you all. It is a very important thing.
I mentioned about Navagrahas being with their spouses, which is unheard of too. They talk about Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma with their spouses but nava grahas? They do not have power during the day. Except Surya, all others are under the dominance of Rahu and Kethu and so their real power manifests only in the nights.
Those nava grahas’ curse has what made those who are born in holy lands to suffer. It is rare to see the happy face of Rahu, Kethu and Shani. I saw that today. The moment that beloved son lit a lamp with 5 faces, the place which was dark was illumined. Lord Muruga and His Father Shiva was seated there too. When the lamp was lit, all the nava grahas were happy and even if they say a word ‘Thathasthu’, it is sufficient for you do not have to search for parikara (remedial measure), temple or holy ponds, horoscope etc.,
The son seated in front of me has an adamant thought that the Atman resides within oneself and that is not there inside a temple. Whatever happened in Chendur temple was a reflection of that thought itself. Those who come with devotion see what is happening here. They literally sell the Lord in pieces where I said ‘Muruga is not here’. He is here now but he will go away in a few minutes. If I say these, they will scold me as to who am I to say that Muruga is not here and all the blame will be on my beloved son who prays to me and reads this Nadi. But there has been innumerable sins happened today, whatever should not happen happened. They circumbulate Lord Muruga after having all the sins committed, they just enact a drama.
If I say that all the brahmins there are ‘frauds’, don’t feel bad. The terms between Agastya and Brahmins is not good nowadays. But I sure will say this, as long as these brahmins are here, Lord Muruga is not going to be here. I am sure Lord Muruga will agree too. He came here and after seeing the ‘impurity’ during the kumbabisheka, He went back. The kumbabisheka happened without Muruga being present. Everyone shouted at the Gopuram as ‘Arohara’ but the Atma of that sound, Lord Muruga was not there at that time. I saw His face and found that out. He was not at all happy with the kumbabisheka.
The holy fire was lit by those brahmins who did fraud, covet, loot, those with sins, all of them. The attribute of Agni is that it burns sins. When it was lit, due to its natural attribute of burning sins, the place became a little peaceful or else, those who committed the sins would have suffered so very much by falling in to the anger of Agni. Do not think that Agastya is talking all these in the shrine of Lord Muruga. When He is not happy about what has happened, all the unwanted, sinful things that happened, and when He Himself has left, what do I have anything left here? Thankfully that Hanuman came and you all were saved or else the purpose of asking you to visit here would have been useless.
Now let me come back. You lit the lamp and felt happy. The one seated on my right, the one who speaks a different langugage, he has lit lamps not today or yesterday, but also in his previous births, for about 77 years. It is that merit, somehow that he has this habit even in this birth. He never bothers about anything but lits a lamp in the holy places and that is something which is written right when he was born.
