Prayer of the Day
Prayer from Thiruvarutpayan (திருவருட்பயன்)
எமக்கென் எவனுக்கு எவை தெரியும் அவ்வத்
தமக்கவனை வேண்டத் தவிர் 46
Song as Romanized text
emakken evanukku evai theriyum avvath
thamakkavanai vENDath thavir 46
Meaning of the Prayer Song:
What is there for us?
Who can understand what?
Other than seeking the One Who is personal, avoid others.
1. To get the context of this song, it would be good to keep in mind
the chapters in Thirumandhiram, where Thirumular mentions the
qualification of the Guru and the disciple.
The disciple should be in a state to absorb the teaching and should be
able to see the light on his own through the teaching. If not there is no point
for the guru to teach.
At the same time, what is the point in seeking the guru who cannot understand
the situation of the disciple to provide appropriate guidance?
So, other than the Personal Guru, others shall be avoided (as gurus).
