Translation of moolar thirumandtiram:

Our Beloved, the Source, One Who told the four vedas, the Splendor that glitters inside the flawless gold, for That God, making love, putting down the desires, climbing the pole Saluted and became part of the crowd ! Notes: 1. This thirumanthiram is the chapter regarding the samAdhi in aShTanga yOga. thirumUlar explains the build up to come to the peak of ashtanga yoga - the samAdhi. All these chapters give great phases the yOga practitioner passes through to come to this great state. At this stage he says this samAdhi is the one achieved by the selfless devotees in the way of pure love to God shiva. 2. In this regard the thirupaDaiyATchi (49th padhikam) of thiruvAcakam is very much to be studies alongside to understand and realize the glory of this thirumanthiram. A few statements from this padhikam: ... kanRai n^inain^thezu thAyena van^tha kaNakkathu AkAthE... ... caN^gu thiraNdu muranRezum Ocai thazaippana AkAthE ... ... cIraDiyArkaL civAnubavaN^kaL therin^thiDum AgAthE ... 3. c.f.
