He continued. The Grammar became Thirukkural!
Only those who felt hunger and pain can realize the pain and hunger of others.
Use Tamil, Lord Muruga who is Tamil himself, use it with gratitude and thankfulness. The Lord Subramanya will reside in your tongue. The Siddhas will be around you and protect.
For a good life, divine should reside in one’s mouth.
Control your senses and route it to the higher plane. But do not restrain or suppress anything or grow something, it is a future prison you are constructing for yourself.
As the Karma gets dissolved, just as the sand gets removed in the anthill, the almighty appears within you just as the snake comes out of the anthill.
Food, even when given as charity is Narayana Seva. The body without the Atma when given to Agni, is Shiva Seva.
There is nothing permanent in this world, except the Lord.
The thought becomes ripened when the divinity dwells.
One who searches for Subramanya in Panchathayana Pooja, he will be shown the Paraparam (almighty) easily.
Become the philosophy in Chin-mudra. The scattered life will come in control.
Grow like a rice grain. Bow down like it humbly. Within you will dwell the Shiva like the rice pearl.
Everywhere it is sweet that is bitter, spice that is sour.
Just how karma is hidden within a disease, karma dwells in hunger too. The karma-dahana happens in the stomach everyday.
As he went on, I was dumbfounded. I wondered if I could remember everything. He paused as if he read my thought again.
“Ok, let us see about the inverted Shiva Linga!”
“Shiva Yogis sit in meditation and meditate on the holy feet of the Lord in Sahasrahara. In the peak of this meditation, the holy feet disappears and a Shiva Linga appears. As they continue their meditation, the Shiva Linga slowly changes direction facing their inner body (inverted). This can be called as ‘ripened’ as if the rice grain bows down when it is ripened. We could also say that the Lord is turning towards the Thavasi due to the penance.
At a stage, when the Shiva Linga is completely inverted, for a nazhigai, drops of nectar falls inside the body from that Shiva Linga. It purifies the body. When this nectar has spread all across, the body will not even need air to breath. The inverted Shiva Linga talks just that – by saying indirectly ‘try if you can’. If you can, try to see the Inverted Shiva Linga in your shukshma during meditation.”
I felt this is the most difficult part of any Sadhana I have ever heard. It is those humans who walked down this path, persevered, stood by their sadhana and has become Siddhas as said by many a wise men, I realized.
