DAILY WISDOM

A child is born on that day and at that hour when the celestial rays are in the mathematical harmony with ones individual karma. The horoscope is a challenging portrait, revealing ones unalterable past and probable future results. The message boldly blazoned across the heavens at the moment of birth is not meant to emphasize fate, but to arouse our will to action. - Swami Sri Yukteswar

Quantity:

Avvai is considered to be one of the most influential sages among the Tamil speaking people of south India. Her poems and literary works, dating from the first millennium of the modern era are recited by millions of Tamil speaking school children in south Asia to this day. The values and wisdom which her poems convey however, has a source. It is this source which the present volume, The Yoga of Siddha Avvai, sheds much new light upon with the inclusion of her text of Vinayakar Akaval. The author takes us on a literary, historical and spiritual tour of ancient Indian culture, and in so doing, helps us to understand her origins and greatness. Like her illustrious forebearer, the Siddha Thiruvallavar, whose influence on Tamil culture and values, through his classic Tirukkural, is universally acknowledged; Avvai was also a Siddha Yogi. While Thiruvallavar was a disciple of Agastyar, and brother disciple of Babaj Nagaraj, the originator of Kriya Yoga, Avvai claims that her Guru was the sound of Aum, the Pranava itself, personified in the form of Ganesha, who taught her Kundalini-Yoga. Her poetry invokes the presence of the Guru, and then ignites within the reader the flame of spiritual consciousness. It also points to the esoteric practice of Kundalini-Yoga as the path that leads to enlightenment and God realization. Her`s is a wonderful example of arrupadai, the Siddha`s ideal of showing the path to others. If the purpose of human knowledge is to alleviate human suffering, then that knowledge or wisdom which eliminates suffering completely is the most valuable. Like all of the Siddhas, she shared her wisdom with this purpose. Their teachings are universal, non-sectarian, and very much needed in today`s suffering world. Students of Kriya Yoga, Kundalini-Yoga, Jnana, and Tantra as well as devotees of Ganesha (Vinayakar) and students of Tamil literature and culture will all find much insight and greater understanding of their path as a result of studying this volume. Readers familiar with Avvai`s moral sayings may be surprised to learn of the origins of her wisdom and be inspired themselves to apply themselves to Yogic Sadhana.
