Kolaru Pathigam - கோளறு பதிகம்

Please click on this link to download the Tamil lyrics of Koralu Pathigam, a 10-stanza poem on Lord Shiva  from Thevaram by Saint ThirugnaanaSambandar, to ward of all planetary afflictions.

These verses were composed when the saint was told that the time was inauspicious to proceed to challenge his adversaries in an intellectual-spiritual debate. The blessed young saint said the planets would never affect the devotees of the Lord and sang the ten verses, for the benefit of his followers.

You can recite this on all Tuesdays and Fridays.
