Prayer of the Day

Prayer song in Tamil


நீலமேனி வாலிழை பாகத்து     
ஒருவன் இருதாள் நிழற்கீழ் 
மூவகை உலகும் முகிழ்த்தன முறையே.    ஐங்குறுநூறு கடவுள் வாழ்த்து

Meaning of the Prayer Song:

 Under the shade of the two feet of the One,
Who has in one part the Lady of pure ornaments and dark form,
the three types of world evolved.


1. vAl - chaste; izai - ornament; mukizththal - to bud.

2.  mUvakai ulagu 
The complete world can be classified into three
categories - masculine, feminine and neuter.
c.f. அவன் அவள் அதுவெனும் அவை மூவினைமையின்    - சிவஞானபோதம்

3.  mukizththana muRaiyE.  
The whole world indicated by these three categories
"evolved" under the Supreme Lord Shiva.
This is the concept of Vedanta Siddhanta -
The Supreme Brahman is the force behind us,
with which we have evolved. One who realizes that
Supreme as the essential, is liberated.
