Thiruvalluvar-The Saint Poet of India 

MYLAPORE – MY BIRTH PLACE : 

 

     

    

    

MYLAPORE - THE TOWN OF PEACOCKS

 

The Tamils called it ‘ MAILAPUR ‘(town of peacocks), Mailiga Vandha Voor(town where peacock offers worship) and in Sanskrit it is known as ‘MAYURPURI’. Greeks called it ‘ MALIARPHA ‘ and the Portuguese called it ‘ MELIAPUR ‘.Finally, the English called it ‘ MYLAPORE ‘. It is a known center of human habitation for thousands of years. Even before the birth of Jesus Christ, the Tamil Saint Poet Thiruvalluvar lived here.He conveyed his noble thoughts in the form of poems and his work known as ” THIRUKKURAL ” can rightly be claimed as a gift of God to mankind. I am happy to present some poems translated into English by Shri.J Narayanaswamy. 

10. KINDNESS IN WORDS 

91. Sweet words laced with love, free from 

deceit, are the gift of the enlightened 

92.Saying sweet things with a smile, is as 

good as munificence of a kind soul 

93.Earnest words from the mind, conveyed 

with a smile, have virtue in them 

94.The woe of unfriendliness does not afflict 

those who instil mirth by sweet words 

95.Those adorned with modesty, speaking sweet 

truth do not need other decorations 

96.Pursuing virtue in the goodness of 

fruitful words, vanishes harm 

97.Graceful words of kindness 

yield fruitful good deeds 

98.Sweet words free from deceit, afford 

pleasure to life and fame beyond it 

99.who perceive seeds of goodness in sweet 

words have no mind for harsh things 

100.None having ripe fruits relish raw ones; who will 

speak harsh when sweetness can achieve good. 

Please feel free to spread those sweet words which took birth in MYLAPORE. 

 

      

     

 

     

    

    

Kapaleeswara Temple
This landmark Temple of Kapaleeswara binds me to my birthplace of Mylapore, Madras(Chennai). The Presiding Diety of this Temple is chosen as my personal Protector and hence I am given the name of "RUDRA".

I seek harmony between doctrines of Idealism and Realism to account for human existence. I welcome thoughts from all directions to understand the nature of Human Identity and Individuality. The multicellular human organism exists as Physical, Mental, Social, Moral, Spiritual being with a Creative Form that cannot be duplicated. For purposes of brevity and simplicity, I divide the human being into two categories; 1. The first is 'SELF' and it represents man as Physical, Mental, and Social Being and 2. The second is, the 'KNOWING-SELF' which represents man as Moral, Rational and Spiritual Being."I am Consciousness, therefore I am", is the proposition that I use to understand the nature of man's Identity and Individuality. Man is a Mortal Being whose Life and Death are operated by Oxidation-Reduction Chemical Reactions. The Physical Being is dissolved by the powerful influence of Time which seem to operate Natural Law of Aging. Things in Nature change with Time but the Identity and Individuality of Man remains the same during his Life Journey. The genotype remains unchanged while the phenotype appears to be changing all the time. In the multicellular human organism, the Consciousness functions to establish Identity of the organism and to defend its Individuality. Consciousness also establishes the Connection, Partnership, Relationship, Yoking, Joining, and Association between the energy dependent man and his energy provider. Man exists in Nature because of his ability to acquire energy from external environmental source. Consciousness in its essence refers to this awareness of energy dependence. I describe the Connection between energy seeker and energy provider as 'God Connection'. Man during all the stages of his existence, and under any given circumstance, either in good health, or ill-health exists on the basis of this 'God Connection' which is an attribute of biological or living function called Consciousness. This conditioned nature of human existence is supported by Power/Energy/Force which can be experienced as Compassion/Mercy/Grace of the Creator who created man as an Individual with unique genome that has never existed in the past and also will never exist in the future. I seek the Unity of Man in Body, Mind, and Soul unlike other common Indian traditions that seek to verify Identity between Human Soul and Divine Soul. My doctrine can be described as Unity Theory of Non-Dualism.
