Gurunathar’s Divine Message Moolam Pooja 02-09-2006

I would like to answer some questions that have been asked, especially one particular question. Of the several modern proverbs I pick one “Adi Udavathu pole annan thambi udava matan” If there is really such a proverb can someone justify causing physical harm?It is easy to understand if we realize that the term ‘Adi’ does not refer to a physical blow dealt with a stick or hand , but the term ‘Thiru Adi’ refers to the divine feet of the Omnipotent Lord we worship. If you worship the feet of the Lord,nothing can be as effective – not even your own siblings can help you as much as the Lord. Another recent proverb, “ Kalil Kandal Nayai Kaanom. Nayai Kandal Kalai Kaanom”. (If you see the dog, you cannot see the stone, and if you see the stone you cannot see the dog). This too I have explained earlier- “Marathil Maraindhidhu Mamathai Yaanai”

When children see a sculpted dog they will respond with enthusiasm perhaps happiness for they are reminded of the joy that a live dog can bring and for the moment forget that it is only lifeless stone. At the same time the sculptor is only interested in the excellence of his skill – how well he has carved the stone – are there no flaws in it? And thus fails to enjoy seeing it as perhaps a child might. Hence it is the individual’s way of thinking that colours what he sees.
An example in English, is a story of the blind men who on touching and feeling an elephant formed very different impressions of it. One felt he was like a pillar another felt he was like a tree . Though their perspectives were different all their impressions were of the same animal this is my explanation.
