Dhaanuvaai nindranai arunachala
Arunachala! In my insatiable desire to attain you I let go of my natural shyness and came of my own volition, but you are just standing there (shamelessly) like a pillar, motionless, is this in anyway a sign of your masculinity?
Arunachala, I came to you impelled by my insatiable desire to lie in your protective embrace, letting go of my shyness which is more precious than my life. Even though you came of your own accord earlier and took me over, now you are standing there immobile as if you had nothing to do with any of this.
Inner meaning: ‘naanai ondri nee dhaanuvai nindranai’ means, you, having merged with me as one without second and become my atma swarupam, stood there like a motionless pillar. ‘Naanaai naadida’ refers to the movement of the jiva (soul) while ‘dhaanuvaai nindranai’ points to the immobile state of Self. Arunachala stands as a pillar of peace (shanti) at the end of atma vicar (self-enquiry) which is the ultimate of manifestation of HIs grace for the devotees. In the state of non-duality there is no place for emotions such as shame or shyness (whereas it exists in duality). Hence the lord stands tall from earth to the heavens.
