ISAIGNANIYAAR I S* 33

IS*-Indian Saint 33

India our holy Motherland treats men and women equal
In all respects. There are many woman Gods indeed equally
Venerated and respected by all. Tamilnadu got the grace
Of one ISAIGNANIYAR-mother of Sundarar one of the four
Important Nayanmars- out of the noble sixty three!

Family of “Sundarar” son of”Sadaya Nayanar”,
Isaignaniyar mother,Paravai Nachiyar wife,
Sundarar, Sangili Nachiyar wife,”Narasinga
Muniyaraiyar Nayanar” foster-father
Isaignaniyar of seventh century female saint

She is herself regarded as a Nayanar saint, venerated
In ” “Shaivism” along with her husband Sadaiya Nayanar”
She is generally counted as the last in the list of sixty three
one of the three female saints. Sundarar is the only Nayanar
With both his parents enlisted as Nayanars.
Her sainthood is seen as the greatness of her son.

WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY-August 26th

 

Women are not equal in this great country-my Motherland-
India that is Bharath! Indeed they are far superior than men!
Very nation has BHARATH MAATHAA as its head and not father!
In the hierarchy we say-MAATHRU DEVO BAVA- PITHRU DHEVO BAVA-
Acharya Devo Bava! Matha, pitha, Guru, Deivam in that order!
Women Gods are revered more than men Gods! Parasakthi, Durga,
Lakshmi and Saraswathi ! Valor, studies and wealth they are supreme!
Equality in all matters they enjoy- political, social
And domestic-Mother land -India can be proud of!
Saint Theresa’s day is today! What a great woman she was
Made India as her home and served the poor and destitutes
In a remarkable manner with love and affection, care and compassion!

Yet unfortunate we see abuse of women and violence against them
To be condemned and protection given by the men of the society

Culture and thoughts being different in America for them today is
Women’s Equality Day is Twenty Sixth August there to commemorate
The nineteen twenty adoption to the United States Constitution,
Prohibiting the states from denying the right to vote to citizens
Of the United States on the basis of sex. Let us pay our respects today!

Nice to have brought out the patriotism held dearly by Nethaji and his own way which was completely at variance with Gandhiji’s in the freedom movement against the British, despite the goal remaining the same, namely independence for our Motherland!

Wish we had such leaders in our midst remaining as entities with excusive general welfare of people behind every one of their actions!

Now we need to charge ourselves with sentiments that drove the freedom struggle in a spirited way to help enable the flow of benefits of political freedom as anticipated by the freedom fighters!

19/08/19-2

A nice concept that doesn’t sacrifice quality, though there’s an offer in place to sell products at a subsidised value on this day in USA!

We in India too have such attractive offers from the businesses frequently, but most of the time we feel we had been cheated after finding out the discrepancy between what we were delivered and what we were promised!

The purpose of this day is thus defeated by the traders’ casual approach, with the buyers losing the value for their money in the process!

Long live our hard-won freedom, with us justifying it through exhibition of our concern for the nation in every step we make in our journey aimed at overall development!

We’re overburdened with stress due to routine interaction with people on a daily basis, and unless we are relieved from their clutch, we are bound to make our lives miserable and unworthy of living!A nice post to read!

Either we have to get rid of the monotony by ourselves voluntarily taking breaks in between by diversion through engagement with activities different from the routine, or to take a route via listening to jokes cracked by our well wishers and strangers too!

After all, everyone of us is after happiness, and so we should judiciously  make use of the opportunities coming our way to make our life enjoyable!

A feast to the stomach-full!

How true it’s to call poetry the language of the soul – the soul reflecting exactly what is inside of it for the readers and listeners to sit on the table and savour to their heart’s content – it cannot therefore be bad!

Madras Nalla Madras – nicely written by you and Nivetha!

Chennaites would never enjoy places other than Madras – it’s too enticing to escape their presence there – for, east or west, home’s best!

Poetry by a group of participating poets including yourself – a compound and mixture – a recipe qualifying as a mixture and compound catering to the taste buds of all!

The subject matter of a poetry – uniqueness is its essence – makes the poem beautiful, with them wearing the garb of proper texture and scintillating hues that cannot go attracted by the lovers of poetry!

Long live the poets to come out with their souls finding a sure expression through their imaginative powers in full action!

Nice to read the above post!

We are a secular nation, and co-existence of people with perfect harmony despite prevalence of different faiths is made possible!

The saints and seers coming of different religions propagate right messages to the people, and make them realize the futility of violence as a method to achieve their selfish ends!

If the rulers singularly concentrate on efforts to bring in a society free of turbulence in their daily lives, the economic development of our motherland is sure to follow!

This is what the priority should be before the saints in the larger interest of the masses!

Nice post on Forgiveness Day!

Forgetfulness and Forgiveness are necessary virtues we should imbibe to keep the relationships moving in the right direction!

Overloading us with remnants of past that might have soured our feelings will take away the sheen of life!

Two tools in our armory that readily fight the consequences of the dreaded brooding we are used to!

Zero tolerance is what often an enemy within us posing as a challenge to our thriving cordial relationships!

The one and the only panacea is our readiness to adopt forgetfulness and forgiveness as a way of life!

It’s very nice of Mr. Venkata Krishna to have liked your daily posts, and come up with a selected portion thereon on a daily basis!

Congrats to him!

02/08/19

A nice post in the series, ‘saints and seers!’

Their mission is simply great and laudable!

Removed far from the material aspects of life, their purpose is centred around spiritualism, and they go all out and see how best they can guide the masses on righteous path!

Gita is a striking example to show how man should approach everyday life , and Dayanand Saraswati’s usual discourse would have been beneficial to the devotees who heard him regularly!

01/08/19

A nice read!

An adventurous feat many would like to try and succeed!

As is found in the post, will power plays a dominant role in completing the task successfully!

Aside from it, an overwhelming interest in climbing to reach the peak adds determination to the act!

An abode of saints and seers from where they practice simplified living and penance to drive home their messages to the people who are on the road to spiritual development!

Living and life around mountains is an experience sought to be achieved in the midst of nature!

1/07/10

Thank you very much for the above post as this week’s Sunday Story!

Turning back, I find, I’ve come a long way!

Also I’m aware, I’ve miles to go before I sleep, and I’m sure I’ll!

A good read!

When we think of trees, what instantly comes to our mind is the tangible benefits we get from them!

Intangible ones are invaluable, and they provide solutions to what we are confronted with, namely the most generalised GLOBAL WARMING posing as a challenge of gigantic proportions!

Erratic climate is a global phenomenon attracting environmentalists and nature lovers across the world nations to assemble frequently to talk of the permanent remedies to tide over this phase gradually but steadily!

It’s the common man’s problem affecting their everyday life in many ways than one – ever keeping their fingers crossed, baffling the mankind just as one groping in the dark to locate something non-existent!

It seems so, but wisdom within us will straight away tick the correct answer, one that drives us to plant as much trees as possible, and to nourish and nurture them as if our babies that require motherly care and attention!

30/07/19

The title of your post today led me to guess it must be the day you were born – and it’s rightly so!

No one can believe what you are saying about yourself that you are a burden to this earth- you’ve achieved a lot and nothing stands against you in achieving more in future!

Your potential is great, and you’re characteristic of bringing it to the fore without losing any portion of it!

May the Almighty be with you in translating your passion for writing into  many more ‘creations’ for your followers to view, read, and enjoy!

29/07/19

Nice to go through your series on saints and seers, including one on the above!

This takes me back to my childhood days when in the month of Margazhi every year there was virtual ‘competition’ between the likes of me in carrying the portrait of Andal followed by the procession of bhajan performers made along the circuitous main road in my native village in Coimbatore district!

And cause miseries to others and make them go mad.
