“I went to Sivalogam accompanied by other devotees. When I was announced by the guards, Lord Siva came out and received me with open arms. I spent some time in the company of yogis who had solved the mysteries of life and death. Eventually, I crossed the ocean of birth and stood on the other shore.”

Thiruvalluvar, Tamil Siddha.

Thiruvalluvar was born at Madurai, the capital of the Pandyas.
He is regarded as an Avatara of Brahma.
His wife Vasuki was a chaste and devoted lady, an ideal wife, who never disobeyed the orders of her husband, but always carried them out implicitly.
Thiruvalluvar showed people that a person could lead the life of a Grihastha or householder, and at the same time, lead a divine life or a life of purity and sanctity. He showed people that there was no necessity to leave the family and become a Sannyasin to lead a divine life of purity and sanctity.
All his wise sayings and teachings are now in book form and known as ‘Thirukkural’. These sayings are all in couplets. Here are some of them:

Just as the alphabet ‘A’ is the beginning of all letters, so also, God is the beginning for this universe.

130: As Much as You Strive, So Much is His Grace Bestowed
Even as you strive to reach Wisdom's bounds,
Even so on you, Hara, the Being First, His Grace bestows,
In Sabha unique He dances for Uma to behold.
Like a Flaming Ruby in the Flaming Sky.

131: The Glorious Beauty of Divine Dance
Inside the ruby like the emerald flaming
Inside the ruby like the emerald inset,
He dances the Holy Dance in the Sabha of purest gold
What oh the reward, to those who Him adored!

132: Attainment of Deathlessness and Birthlessness
In this world they received the Deathless Way great
In this world they attained the Birthless End great
The Gift unique of inseparateness from the Sabha pure
The ineffable rapture, the glory beyond reach of words.

133: Senses Controlled, They Saw This World and Next
Who there be who, like our Lord, distinct know
The great and the small, the difficult and the facile?
They, unto tortoise, drawing in senses five under the shell,
They heard and saw This and Next, all impurities dispelled.

134: Silentness of Waveless Thought
Like the ghee subtly latent in purest milk,
Into the waveless Thought the Lord in silentness speaks;
They who, in silentness realise, this mortal coil shuffled,
Purity they become, in Limitless Light mingling.

135: When the Five Senses Take Cit's Way, They Reach Cit
When the senses Five, sound commencing, Cit's way take,
Where shall the Cit go but to the Cit?
In space light mingles but with Light,
Note this, as doth salt in the sea vast.

136: Jiva Lies Enclosed in Siva
The fierce rays of the sun beating upon the water,
The incontained salt does in crystal shapes emerge;
Even as that salt is in the water contained,
So does Jiva in Siva lie enclosed.

137: As Atom Merges in the Vast, Jiva Merges in Siva
The tiny atom, swimming the Universe vast,
Merges in the Vast--no separate existence knows;
So the Spirit's plastic stress sweeping through bodies all,
At sight of His Holy Feet, discovers its Ancient Home.

138: Lord's Feet is the Final Refuge of Souls Illumed
The Holy Feet is Siva, if you but know,
The Holy Feet is Siva's world, if you but think,
The Holy Feet is Freedom's bliss, truth to say,
There is the final refuge for souls illumed.

139: Guru's Role in Soul's Illumination
It is but to see the Guru's Holy Form,
It is but to chant the Guru's Holy Name,
It is but to hear the Guru's Holy Word,
It is but to muse the Guru's Holy Being
--Thus it is the soul its illume receives.

140: Seek His Grace, the Senses Get Controlled
Surely then the senses five under your control come,
Surely then the senses five back to their native homes retreat,
Surely then the senses five change their course,
If, alone, you seek the sole felicity of our Lord's perfect Grace.

141: Fill Thy Thoughts With Nandi
All they see is Nandi's Holy Feet twain,
All they think is Nandi's Holy Form divine,
All they chant is Nandi's Name, I trow,
In all their thoughts Nandi's golden Words and wise.

142: Thus They Reached Heaven
Who, in their minds, kept our Nandi's Holy Name,
Nandi, Wisdom's Lord,--they holy became;
As the Lord danced, they beheld Him with eyes enthralled,
While the Vedas sang in praise,
Reached Heaven's sacred shores.
