Thirumalai – Thondaradipodi azhwar
காவலிற் புலனை வைத்துக் கலிதனைக் கடக்கப் பாய்ந்து
நாவலிட் டுழிதரு கின்றோம் நமன்தமர் தலைகள் மீதே
மூவுல குண்டு மிழ்ந்த முதல்வநின் நாமம்கற்ற
ஆவலிப் புடைமை கண்டாய் அரங்கமா நகரு ளானே.
Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji
While others have explained – ‘Kãvalil pulanai vaithu kalithannai kadakapãindu’, as ‘perform Nãma Sankirtan holding the senses under control’,
Periavãcchãnpillai Swamy has explained it as – 'Kãval il pulanai vaithu', i.e, “It is all right even if you do not hold your senses under control. Keep doing Nãma Sankirtan. The ‘indriyãs’ (senses) will automatically come under control!” The Swamy’s perception of each pãsuram and his elucidation (‘bãshya’) for them are wonderful and charming.

I feel ashamed to stand before God and seek for his blessings the next time. What should I do?
If you sincerely pray to get the obstacle removed, your prayer shall be fulfilled
To protect one from five senses one need to keep a vigilant watchman or a ferocious dog and that is nothing but the divine names of the Lord.
The Mahamaya (greatest illusion), the mind, can be brought under control slowly and steadily by Namakirtan alone.
Drench your senses in the enchanting form of Krishna, His stories, His glory and His Divine Name. The mind is effortlessly controlled!
What is difficult for human beings? The constant control of the mind.
The name of God is more powerful than the senses. It will become all right in time if you practise regularly.
If we think of God and pray to Him for His guidance and His grace, we shall derive strength to battle against these temptations and conquer our weaknesses
Likewise, never once does a true disciple doubt, if his Guru has conquered his senses!
If the mind troubles?
