Anbaai karaitharuL Arunachala
Just how hail stone, made of water gets its solid form, and melts into its original form of water with heat, dissolve me in your form of love Arunachala.
In reality, hail stone and water not different, they just appear different, with one form as solid and the other as liquid. Similarly, jiva and Siva (soul and god) are the same.
The jiva, which in reality is a form of love, due to reflected qualities (aabaasa guna) takes the form for of ego. Analysing the differentiated forms due to imagination that arise due to limitations (upadhi), it comes to light that the ego melts in the heat of wisdom (gnana agni), loses its form and dissolved in its true form.
If they are different objects they won’t attain non-dual state of moksha/liberation (athuvidha Mukti), it will disprove the Vedic declarations that both are one and the same and make it a lie. Bhagavan mentions that both are the same in Upadesa Undhiyar verse also:
‘irukkum iyarkkaiyal eesaseevargaL
oruporuLe yaavar undheepara
Upadhi uNarvae undheepara
