Chapter 1 : Invocation

12 Nov
Division 1 : Aram (Righteousnous)
Chapter 1 : Invocation
A is the first of the alphabet;
God is the primary force of the world.
1
What is the use of all your learning,
if you can’t surrender yourself at the feet of God.
2
Those who surrender themselves at feet of the one,
who resides in the flower-like hearts of all, will live long and well.
3
Those who surrender at the feet of the one,
who doesn’t have wants or hates, will never have any hassles anywhere.
4
Fate, which impacts those in the darkness of ignorance,
will not impede those who hail the true glory of God.
5
Those who follow the true moral path of the one,
who has doused the desires of the five senses, will last long.
6
Except for those who surrender at the feet of the one, for whom,
there is no simile, it is tough to cure the mental rues.
7
Except those who surrender at the feet of God, the ocean of morality,
others will struggle to cross the ocean of desire.
8
The head that doesn’t bow to God, is similar
to the organs that don’t have the right senses.
9
Those who surrender at the feet of God,
will cross the great ocean of life; others won’t.

கடவுள் வாழ்த்து

அகர முதல எழுத்தெல்லாம் ஆதி
பகவன் முதற்றே உலகு.
1
கற்றதனால் ஆய பயனென்கொல் வாலறிவன்
நற்றாள் தொழாஅர் எனின்.
2
மலர்மிசை ஏகினான் மாணடி சேர்ந்தார்
நிலமிசை நீடுவாழ் வார்.
3
வேண்டுதல் வேண்டாமை இலானடி சேர்ந்தார்க்கு
யாண்டும் இடும்பை இல.
4
இருள்சேர் இருவினையும் சேரா இறைவன்
பொருள்சேர் புகழ்புரிந்தார் மாட்டு.
5
பொறிவாயில் ஐந்தவித்தான் பொய்தீர் ஒழுக்க
நெறிநின்றார் நீடுவாழ் வார்.
6
தனக்குவமை இல்லாதான் தாள்சேர்ந்தார்க் கல்லால்
மனக்கவலை மாற்றல் அரிது.
7
அறவாழி அந்தணன் தாள்சேர்ந்தார்க் கல்லால்
பிறவாழி நீந்தல் அரிது.
8
கோளில் பொறியின் குணமிலவே எண்குணத்தான்
தாளை வணங்காத் தலை.
9
பிறவிப் பெருங்கடல் நீந்துவர் நீந்தார்
இறைவன் அடிசேரா தார்.

    அன்புள்ள திரு கண்ணன் அவர்களே
    எனது அன்பு வணக்கம்

    I happen to know you through the seminar at Tamil Heritage Trust on “Thirukurral & Management” many summers ago. I was fascinated by the way you presented the seminar. We had a good talk after the session. Few days back I was searching for English translation of Thirukkural in the net, bumped on your website {https://thirukkural133.wordpress.com }
    I was completely bowled over by the presentation and the wonderful meaning conveyed through wonderful choice of words. Your version 2 meanings of Sri Parimel Azhagar are really thoughtful.
    I seek your permission for using your work to send the meaning of Thirukkural through SMS to my friends starting this Gandhi Jayanthi.

    Many years ago I had sent the brief meaning Bhagavad Geetha through SMS to my friends to create an interest about Geetha.

    Once again your work is really wonderful
