Aagamal kaatharuL Arunachala
Arunachala, please shower you grace on me so I don’t get tossed about in the sea storm of samsara without knowing where the shore is, like a ship without a sailor being tossed in a sea that’s buffeted by a devastating hurricane.
Like a directionless ship without a sailor (captain) that’s tossed about in a severe storm, I am being tossed about in the sea of samsara buffeted by the typhoon of passions and material desires. Please guide me to the shore by making me look inward and protect me as my gnana guru (wisdom guru), prays Bhagavan.
Earlier, he pleaded with the lord likening himself to a tender creeper looking for a strong branch to grow on (paingodiya naan patrindri vaadamal verse), similarly he prays to Arunachala to rescue him from the sea of samsara.
