DOING ERAI'S WORK


Mahakavi Bharathi touches the soul with these verses "தன்செய லெண்ணித் தவிப்பது தீர்ந்திங்கு நின்செயல் செய்து நிறைவு பெறும்வண்ணம்" from his composition "Ninnai Charan Adainthen, Kannama." Doing his hearts desire, and getting agitated that his endeavors kept failing, he surrendered to the Almighty and did his asking instead, hence gaining utmost satisfaction and regaining his peace.

நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்
பொன்னை, உயர்வை, புகழை விரும்பிடும்
என்னை கவலைகள் தின்ன தகாதென..

நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

மிடிமையும் அச்சமும் மேவி என் நெஞ்சில்
குடிமை புகுந்தன, கொன்று அவை போக்கின

நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

தன்செய லெண்ணித் தவிப்பது தீர்ந்திங்கு
நின்செயல் செய்து நிறைவு பெறும்வண்ணம்
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்

துன்பம் இனி இல்லை, சோர்வில்லை
சோர்வில்லை, தோற்பில்லை
நல்லது தீயது நாமறியோம்
நாமறியோம் நாமறியோம்
அன்பு நெறியில் அறங்கள் வளர்த்திட
நல்லது நாட்டுக! தீமையை ஓட்டுக

நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன், கண்ணம்மா
நின்னை சரணடைந்தேன்


When the veil of ignorance is drawn back, you realize that you are here to do Erai's work. Only this action will not constitute creating fresh karma; all other actions lead to either good or bad karma, hence leading on to a continuous cycle of birth and rebirths to reap the benefits or to pay its debts.

Link up with Erai; let him tell you what your mission is in this life - it can never only be that of caring for yourself and your close ones only. It has to be far more reaching and with a divine purpose, encompassing all of humanity. This birth is very rare we are told again and again. Stop living for yourself and stretch out your hands to others. Bring cheer to another; bring hope in another's life. Help change his/her fate and destiny.

When Tavayogi's daughter cried on being told that her father was becoming a turavi, Agathiyar consoled her that he had chosen her father for an even bigger task - that of bringing scores of souls to the path of the Siddhas. That was his mission. 

When Agathiyar told Sri Krishna, "Take care of other households and I shall take care of yours", Krishna set out to serve the unfortunate, less fortunate, poor, hungry and needy. He started a program Pothigai Meals on Wheels that began feeding the homeless in the streets of Kuala Lumpur and soon ventured to feed the hungry students. He began feeding the cows at a cowshed and went on to buy over pigeons from pet shops and freed them. He fed the birds, monkeys and fishes. He conducted abhisegam and puja to the statue of Agathiyar at the Eco City Agathiyar temple that he volunteered to care for. With him came a wonderful team: Balachander Aiya and Shantima; Dr Janar; Shanga Manickam; Perarulalan: Gunalan; Thana and many others carrying out Agathiyar's work.






Take up a task in the name of Erai and do it today. You will get immense satisfaction and joy. Remember you were placed on this earth to do his divine task.
