Re: Commoner's thEvAram
You're welcome, smaranamji.
03. In the Goddess' sanctum, Arjun's battle story
is sculpted on the pillar;
Although the arrow hit the God of glory
how could the shot be a killer?
Today, the arrow wound scar's seen on the Lingam
In Rudra's ancient temple at VETkaLam!
04. GaNEsh and DakShiNA mUrti, Sun and Moon
on the niche of Rudra's sanctum walls;
and SvAmy with his two consorts in tune,
in a distinct room in outer stalls,
waiting for the sage AruNagiri to come,
worship, and write his verse at VETkaLaṃ
[SvAmy = God Muruga/SubrahmaNya; AruNagiri = the famous
sage devotee of SvAmy]
रत्नाकरधौतपदां हिमालयकिरीटिनीम् ।
ब्रह्मराजर्षिररत्नाढ्यां वन्दे भारतमातरम् ॥
To her whose feet are washed by the ocean, who wears the Himalayas as her crown, and is adorned with the gems of rishis and kings, to Mother India, do I bow down in respect.
