ThirumuRai Series - Year 2006 Archive

This section contains selected songs from Twelve Thirumurais. Each link has one song as it is reproduced from the thirumurai followed by Meaning in English and and additional notes section again in English. These are part of the ThirumuRai Series posted in some of the Hinduism mailing lists.

Please note that providing meaning and elaboration texts to thirumuRais has been discouraged in the tradition because they are not like just any other texts, but have been given to us staying intune with the Grace of God. The meaning needs to be felt and depending upon the state one is in these holy texts would give appropriate meaning. In fact the same person would feel the same song to indicate different substances at different points of time. The idea of thirumuRai series is not to provide any exhaustive meaning given the truth of the statements above. It is only something to start with or to be used as a reference to get some idea. May God forgive the errors.
