In the book of commentary on Aksharamanamalai by Muruganar it is explained that after publishing the commentary they discovered additional documents in the collection of hand-written manuscripts of Muruganar which had additional commentaries for many of the verses. These commentaries are published as an appendix.
Such commentaries when available will be presented as additional commentary or AC for short. M and C stand for Meaning and commentary. Arunachala Akshara Manamalai is a garland fit to be offered to Arunachala. The garland is sewn with flowers in the form of letters alphabets endowed with auspicious fragrance. It also means imperishable or true being. If the second meaning is taken the title means Akshara Mana Malai unites the mind of devotees who sing the hymn knowing its meaning with Arunachala Akshara- the imperishable being of Arunachala or true Being.
Muruganar quotes Appar to describe Siva as one who removes the suffering of devotees.
This hymn in the form a garland should be chanted daily with regularity with one-pointed, in-turned-mind with heart fully contemplating on the meaning of being as Arunachala Siva. A devotee who lives near the ashram was fortunate to know Muruganar very closely.
He used to host Muruganar during his visits to Chennai. He says that he asked Muruganar to explain the meaning of Aksharamanamalai in English. Arunachala uproots the ego of devotees. The final goal to be attained by devotees through all devotional activities is to obtain the experience of Arunachala Siva as their real Self.
Muruganar quotes verse 9 of Upadesa Undiyar in support of this statement. The darkness of ego-mind being insentient is not the real I. The five kosas or sheaths are not-self.
The real Self is Arunachala of the form of pure sat-chit-ananda. Hence vichara has been taught. In the verse the word Arunachalame is used.
The suffix to Arunachala indicates abheda bhavana or the contemplation that I am not different from Arunachala. Both vichara and contemplation destroy the ego. Those who meditate in their mind on Arunachala will also lose their individuality.
Ordinary remembrance of Arunachala is shown here to be equally effective to Vichara. Aradhana of Swami Ramananda 9 photos.
