Why don't we feel the Grace?
Prayer of the Day
Prayer from Thiruvarutpayan (திருவருட்பயன்)
அணுகு துணையறியா ஆற்றோனில் ஐந்தும்
உணர்வை உணராது உயிர் 35

Meaning of the Prayer Song:
Like the five senses that do not have
the power to act on their own,
still do not recognize the life as the companion (who makes them act),
the life does not recognize the Grace.
1. The five instruments can see, hear, taste, smell and feel
only when the life force within energizes them.
However these instruments are incapable of
seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling feeling that life force itself.
In the same way, the life is energized by the Grace of Lord Shiva
and the life is acting due to that Grace. Still, the life
is unable to recognize the Grace.
