And like the termites that fly out cracking up the earth, you beget a lot of children. This act is like the monkey that inserts its leg in the gap of a tree branch split up by a wedge and trying to shake that wedge. Recently , almost the same week, the victory of controversial US presidential candidate Donald Trump and the announcement of demonetization of old Rs and Rs 1, notes which led to panic among investors and poor respectively, I realized that some things should be changed in the way I live my life.
As our discussions went intense, I fell in love with this legend. The life history of the legendary Pattinathaar who was born as a wealthy man, but renounced everything on realization that nothing in this world is permanent.
He has left us his life experiences and his realizations as songs that will serve as a reminder that one should not be attached to the materialistic possessions in this world. Tamil Nadu has a lot of poets, siddhars, sages and many wise men who have left behind their experiences as the great wealth that future generations to learn and follow.
However, Pattinathaar is unique to the list of great people that Tamil has as its pride. Pattinathar is one of the greatest Shidda poet. But unlike most of the Shiddas, he hates even his body Shiddas are known for preserving their body.
He is pessimistic,cynical and frustrated. One of the main features of his poems is his pathological hatred of women but is reasonable and relevant even today. Similarity in Buddha , Jesus Christ, and Pattinathar It is so interesting to note that , though there were differences in cultures and era , Jesus Christ , Buddha and Pattinathar thought in the similar lines when it comes to spirituality.
You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me. Mark Jesus and the Buddha agreed that pursuing ultimate happiness in transient things is futile. But they direct us to opposite solutions.
The Buddha says satisfaction is treasuring no thing. Jesus says it is treasuring God. In God we get all things. In no thing we get, well, nothing. He insists that Life is short and we must do everything good within that short period. Pattinathar inspired me to follow him mainly because his poems are happily free from the violent denunciations of idol worship, temples, rituals, caste, Vedas, Agamas etc.
He has shown an excessive desire to extol the virtues of unqualified asceticism and Yogic mysticism in language that can be understood by the masses. He shows leanings towards Bhakti in his later poems. As a poet, he is far superior to Sivavakkiyar, in my opinion. For some of you looking at me, you may wonder if renunciation becoming sanyasi at a young age is a good thing? Or is it worth it? It is my responsibility to explain family life and renunciation to all. When one becomes a sanyasi after experiencing family life, he can explain the good and bad easily to others.
It will help who is entering a new phase in life. Renunciation at young age is good for those who decide early or for those who acquired wisdom from god. I recommend all to immerse in family life. If it is pleasurable, continue with it. Maybe 1 in falls in this group. If everyone becomes a teacher, where to search for a student? The ships that sail out of Kaveripoompatinam Poompuhar town to far away countries, return with bricks of gold. I gathered my experiences standing on that shore.
If the world is made of particles, i know what each particle is made of. I understood the meaning of each laugh and cry. I could have continued my life after gathering all these experiences. I do not know where my final breath will be. As a poet, he is far superior to Sivavakkiyar.
Pattinathar has a greater command over imagery and language. His poetry has sweetness, simplicity and emotional appeal. He has sung of his religion and philosophy with freedom, vigor and breadth of outlook. He has good mastery over form, especially Ahaval metre, in which some of his most brilliant poetical passages have been written. Pattinathar is the most widely read Siddhar in the Tamil language. A man on the street can pick a song, depending on the situation he is in and fully identify himself with it.
The interplay between tradition and modernity has always been a driving force behind great literary works. Tamils who take great pride in their tradition have also embraced modernity as a vehicle for exposition.
Part 1 — Birth -Utarkurruvanam Utarkurruvanam or The harmony of components parts of the Human body is a poem written by the great Cittar Patinathar. This poem retains the cynical view of life typical to him. The poem details life from an embryo to death and finally ashes.

Once the father sent him on a ship with a good lot of merchandise and when he came he just brought back sacks full of paddy husks. The father was angry and locked him up in a room and after going to the harbor, threw the husks out. He was surprised to see they were all gold; every dried piece of the husk turned out to be gold dust and also had precious gems in the sack. He hurried home to see his son. He was not in the locked room.
