Spiritual Experience of Gurunathar – I
The Benefit Of Literacy Is Only Worshiping Saint Agathiar.
All spiritual aspirants in the world make prayer. But only few are aware as Who should be prayed to and get benefited. Only fewer of such few aspirants know that one should worship Saint Agathiar and seek His blessings as He is the one who is omnipotent. One should have carried out millions of millions of virtues even to realize the greatness of Saint Agathiar. Because, Agathiar is present within you the moment you think of Him as praised by the great sages of the holy land.
While praying to Saint Agathiar, the true request to Him should be ” Please enable me to be devoid of another birth”. The true education in life is being aware of the greatness of Saint Agathiar and worshipping His lotus feet and in fact that is the education of immortality.
The educational value of the one who is unaware of Who are true God and the mode of worshipping him is as good as the sugarcane waste (bagasse). At least that waste is used as fuel but the education of such people is utterly useless. Hence as Saint Valluvar says, what is the use of one’s education if he or she does not worship the benevolent feet of the Knowledgeable, in the purest form?
The knowledge of the one who is devoid of His mortal body is the one in the purest form. The true education is nothing but worshipping the noble feet of such saints and receiving their blessings.
The reason for praising Valluvar as The most knowledgeable is that he is aware of all the four stages of spiritual life, namely, VIRTUES,MATERIAL,PLEASURE and BLISS.
Some in this world will be proud of their education. But they should be made to understand that whatever educational level they achieved is of no use, as they will get in to birth again. One who is getting in to rebirth is only illiterate. If one is educated then he must conquer death and should not be born again. One Who is devoid of rebirth is the most powerful. Hence we should worship the noble feet of

6.THE MOST KNOLWLEDGEABLE SAINT VALLUVAR.
and thus remove our impure knowledge that leads to rebirth. This is the final realization of the true spiritual aspirants.
Note: We can not understand and realize the meaning of VIRTUES,MATERIAL,PLEASURE and BLISS just by reading books. It is possible only with the blessings of the Great Preceptor Saint Agathiar. Only by worshipping Saint Agathiar we can shed all our sins. Only when we shed our sins of previous births our thinking will become clearer. Only with clear mind we can understand the true meaning of the Saintly Verses.
Method Of Praying To Saint Agathiar:
To attain Eternal Bliss or Godly status a man must practice alms-giving and meditation. To practice alms giving or charity he needs wealth. Even of he is wealthy, he should be generous. Even if he is generous to carry out the noble acts of charity, he should have a conducive environment, place and scrupulous followers. For all these he needs the great blessings of Guru Sri Agathiar.

For meditation or prayer he must be aware as whom he must pray to and obtain the blessings. Even if he has this awareness, he must be taught as to what and how he must seek in his prayer. He must also be taught as to when and how long he must meditate or pray. Otherwise people will stumble without knowing how to realize God. Hence a Preceptor or Teacher should be available to him who can guide the disciple with all his rich experience. To be fortunate to have such a Preceptor or Guru the man needs the great blessings of Guru Sri Agathiar.
So his daily prayer to Guru Sri Agathiar must comprise of:
his humble request for Guru Sri Agathiar’s blessings practice charity and meditation.
his submission that he realizes that those two would be impossible without the holy blessings of Sri Agathiar.
his realization that without those two practices, it would be impossible to attain Eternal Bliss.
his surrender that even the prayer itself is the result of mercy shown by the Great Guru Sri Agathiar.
his realizations that all the above are only due to his own virtues or good deeds.
His realizes that without those two practices it would be impossible to attain Eternal Bliss. His surrender that even the prayer itself is the result of mercy shown by the Great Guru Sri Agathiar. His realizations that all the above are only due to his own virtues or good deeds.
With an intention to attain Godly status, some practice breathing exercise (Pranayama). When they hold their breath for a long time they get acute stomachache, ulcer and will suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure), indigestion and dysentery. There will be swelling in their arms, legs, stomach and they will face untimely death leaving behind their wife and children as orphans. The reasons for this are the absence of the true Guru in their life and the chasing ill effects of their vices or bad deeds.
Some in their eagerness to avoid death try many types of medicines, herbs etc., and assume that due to its effect they would not die. Unfortunately they will have an unnatural death. Such people will never listen to or will never take the advices of knowledgeable persons. This is again due to their vices or bad deeds.
Some will read Siddha’s (Immortal Sages) writings on medicine and alchemy (science of converting metals into gold) and will try to practice them. Such verses can never be understood for their real meaning. Unaware of this truth such people will loose all their wealth in greed, become bankrupt and therefore turn out to be laughing stock in the society. These people too will never take the advices of the knowledgeable one. Even this is due to their vices to bad deeds.
However it is true that there is a potion to enable one to conquer death or become immortal. One can only know about it with the holy blessings of Lord Subramanyar or Sri Agathiar.
There are 64 types of potion (medicine) or herbs that will not make a person immortal. Within our body there is a potion, drinking which only one can conquer death. To experience this we must devote ourselves to the Great Guru Sri Agathiar.
Some tend to believe the preaching of fraudulent spiritual activists and start thinking that wife, children, parents, wealth, life and the whole world are all illusions. Such fraudulent activists will cheat and grab money from any innocent family man.
Whereas the true path to attain godly status is:
To love and be affectionate to his parents.
To respect the feelings of their spouse.
To execute a parent’s duty for the well being of their children.
To earn money in a righteous way.
To use such money and wealth for the will being of the family members, friends, relatives and practice alms giving to the poor around him.
To pray or meditate by chanting the holy mantra “Om Agatheesaya Nama” for 10 minutes both in the morning and evening in order to be blessed with the Great Divine Knowledge and also the determination to attain it through continuous prayer and meditation.
Only the people with real sense and knowledge will make use of their family life and will not develope any hatred for the worldly affair. They will enjoy the spiritual improvement. But they will realize that it would take many years to enjoy the heavenly experience and maintain patience till then.
And by chanting “OM AGATHISAYA NAMA” all ill effects of one’s bad deeds will disappear. When they disappear he shall possess the true knowledge and sense. Only with such knowledge we can realize spiritual upliftment and ultimately experience the Eternal Bliss. Hence only uninterrupted prayer or meditation will help us attain the Godly status.
