0014.Abhirami Andhadhi Slogan 13
Poem By rajagopal. h..
To Surrender unto my Mother
Poothavale bhuvanam padhinangaiyum pooththa vannam
Kaaththavale pin karandhavale karaikkandanukku
Mooththavale endrum moova mugundharkku ilaiyavale
Maaththavale unnai andri matror deivam vandhippadhe
Hey Abhirami! Thee Bloom of self-determination
Made the fourteen worlds desired by you,
Playing guardianship parallel
Blessing the same by consuming back
Ancestor to my Lord with poison retained throat
Younger to the evergreen protector blue tinted,
Embodiment of great penance
Where is the need for another God when you are there?
Abhirami is the mother of fourteen worlds; She is the preserver of those worlds also; She absorbed the same in Her; elder to Sadasivan who took poison; younger sister to the youthful Vishnu; Leader of great penance; where is the need for another God when you are there?
In the slogan 12 it was told that Abhirami is the mother of seven worlds; here in 13 it is indicated that Abhirami is the mother of fourteen worlds.
Hindu mythology defines fourteen worlds (not to be confused with planets) - seven higher worlds (heavens) and seven lower ones (hells) . (The earth is considered the lowest of the seven higher worlds.) All the worlds except the earth are used as temporary places of stay as follows: upon one's death on earth, the god of death (officially called 'Yama Dharma Raajaa' - Yama, the lord of justice) tallies the person's good/bad deeds while on earth and decides if the soul goes to heaven and/or hell, for how long, and in what capacity. Some versions of the mythology state that good and bad deeds neutralize each other and the soul therefore spends time in either a heaven or a hell, but not both, whereas according to another school of thought, the good and bad deeds don't cancel out each other. In either case, the soul acquires a body as appropriate to the worlds it enters. At the end of the soul's time in those worlds, it returns to the earth (is reborn as a life form on the earth) . It is considered that only from the earth, and only after a human life, can the soul reach supreme salvation, the state free from the cycle of birth and death and the place beyond the fourteen worlds where the eternal god lives.
