There is a school of Thought which considers that Lord Shiva was a Human being and He composed poems in Tamil. I am looking into the legend and verify whether there is any truth in this. This may sound ludicrous for rationalists. The point is that I do not consider me to be super intelligent,right and correct at all times and others ,especially my ancestors were fools to believe anything,spend time and money to build huge marvelous temples. I have , in my Life ,seen many things which defy my Logic. They make/made sense as I grew. Hence I do not dismiss anything offhand by sheer arrogance. The open approach has yielded good dividends in History in that it has brought to light many truths so far hidden because self-importance and intellectual arrogance.

At the same time I do not belive or trust anything which is not supported by internal and external evidence. The proof of my labors lies in my posts in this blog. As to Shiva, I have noticed a lot of curious facts between Shiva in the South and the North, though they are the same. The Avatars of Shiva in the South were not reported in the North. Shiva as a family man with children is not as popular in the North as in the South. Mostly the legends of Siva in the North revolve around only the marriage of Shiva with Uma, and incidents connected with it, while in the South the information is more detailed and Shiva has been portrayed as lending a helping hand to people in distress. His avatars are different from the Avatars of Vishnu in that while Vishnu stayed in a womb Shiva is described as one who does not stay in the womb, Ayonija’; Tamil calls Him as Unborn Eldest, ‘Pirava Yaakaip Periyon’. Yet He appears in a Flash , helps people in distress and disappears. Sixty four of his Avatars of this nature are recorded in Tamil literature, all in the City of Madurai. He is reported to have married a Pandyan Princess Meenakshi in the form of Chokkanatha. Madurai Meenakshi Amman Temple is dedicated to Meenakshi and Shiva as Chokkanatha/Sundareswara. These sixty-four avatars have not been recorded in any north Indian legends though some of them are hinted in Puranas, especially in Linga and Bhagavatha Purana. In one of these Avatars Lord Shiva composed a Poem in Tamil. This is it with meaning. This appears as the second poem in Kurunthogai, a Sangam Literature. The author is given as Iraiyanar, a Name for Shiva. https://ramani16.rssing.com/chan-22730849/article42-live.html --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ramanispodcast/message
