Guru Geethai

Thanks to Smt Meena Kumar for this share….Superb!


(Can someone please explain the story behind this photo?? Curious to know!! )

எவர் குருவோ அவர் சிவன், எவர் சிவனோ அவர் குரு

குருவைக் காட்டிலும் அதிகமான தத்துவம் இல்லை

குருவைக் காட்டிலும் அதிகமான தவம் இல்லை

குருவைக் காட்டிலும் அதிகமான ஞானம் இல்லை

குரு மந்திரத்திற்கு எதுவும் சமம் இல்லை

குருவிற்கு சமமான தெய்வமும் இல்லை

குருவிற்கு சமமான உயர்வுமில்லை

சிருஸ்டி, இஸ்திதி, சம்ஹாரம், நிக்ரஹம், அனுக்ரஹம் இந்த ஐந்து வகையான செயல்கள்எப்பொழுதும் குருவிடம் பிரகாசித்து கொண்டேஇருக்கும்

தியானத்திற்கு மூலம் குருவின் மூர்த்தி

பூஜைக்கு மூலம் குருவின் பாதம்

மந்திரத்திற்கு மூலம் குருவின் வாக்கியம்

முக்திக்கு மூலம் குருவின் கிருபை

– “ஸ்ரீ குரு கீதை”

  1. Nandhesa with disciple Tirumoolar…slokam in tamil points to that only

    • Yes. It should be Lord Nandhi with Tirumoolar. In Tirumandiram, Tirumoolar mentions that Nandhi was his Guru. The name Nandhi is repeated in a number of places in Tirumandiram.

  2. One favourite quote in Sutha samhita often quoted by Mahaperiya in his earlier discourses was
    Gurur Pitha Gurur matha Gurur daivam Gurur gatihi Sive rushite Gurustratha Gurau rushte na kaschana meaning that for a sadhaka Guru is everything and if Siva gets angry Guru can save and if Guru gets angry even Siva cannot save

  3. Lord Nandikeswara Teaches Saint Aghasthyar! Sri Gurubhyo Namaha! Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!

  4. The Siddhars are many and the lists of the 18 main Siddhars differ from each other. But it is generally accepted that Sivan is the fIrst of Siddhars. He was teacher to Nandiswara, who was teacher to others, which list again differs. This picture seems to be an illustration of Nandiswara teaching his disciple.
    Rishabadeva, the fIrst of the Jaina Thirthankaras is a very great Siddhar, who is believed to be Nandiswara’s shishyar. He was the ruler of JambuDvipa. His son Bharatha was the sovereign of our land which we call BharathaVarsha after him. His brother Bahubali, who first fought with Bharatha over the land and kingship, became a realized sage, and is known as Gomateswara, another Jaina Tirthankara.
    It is Gomateswara’s monolithic statue that is at Sravanabelagola. It is the biggest monolith in the world.
    Chandragupta Maurya, the Maurya Emperor, came to this place in his old age, after his Sanyaasaashrama, and meditated here in a cave, till his end.
    This story of the two brothers is one of the inspiring ones that children enjoy listening to, even our TV, internet generation.

    I hope this post is not out of place in this space dedicated to the Periaval.

  5. thats what i also thought…He looked like Lord Nandhikeswara to me! Thanks Ramesh for the link..I wonder how you have these links in your finger tips!!! Amazing….In fact Sri Ramesh, advocate from Chennai tells that many of us often mistake Vrusham vs Nandhi!

  6. check this for the explanation of this picture. Nadikeswara was a great Sidha Sage

  7. Sashtanga namaskaram at the holy feet of our omniscient, omnipotent, and all pervading MahaPeriyavaa. Let all our senses and body cells reverberate the holy NAMA “MahaPeriyava Saranagati”

  8. Maybe – Agastyar and Hyagreevar, Brahmaanda Puranam – Hayagreevar imparted Lalitha Sahasranamam and Lalitha Trisathi to Agastyar
    ஸ்ரீ மஹா பெரியவா ஶரணம்
