If one gets fame, money and good name and also has got people around him to realize it, then they feel that it is the biggest happiness. We human consider this as the greatest happiness and make our life move towards all these happiness. Some of them attain this state of happiness but for some people it remains as a far peak state which they could never attain. In this way only the people are leading their lives.
Paambaatti Siththar says that all these are not the state of happiness but realizing the supreme being is the most happiest thing and also he says the way of attaining it in the following song.
"பேசரிய நவவாயில் பீற்றல் துருத்தி
paesariya navavaayil peetral thuruththi
பெருங்காற்று உள்புகுந்ததால் பேச்சு உண்டாச்சே
perungaatru ulpugunhthathaal paechu undaachae
ஈசன்நிலை அறியாருக்கு இந்தத் துருத்தி
eesannilai ariyaarukku inhthath thuruththi
எரிமண்ணிற் இரையென்றே ஆடாய் பாம்பே!
erimannir iraiyenrae aadaai paambae!"
- பாம்பாட்டிச் சித்தர் (Paambaatti Siththar)
The goldsmith’s use an instrument named bellows which they use to blow air to the furnace. When it is operated, it takes the air from outside and blows the air through a hole to the furnace, so that the flame burns brightly. Paambaatti Siththar says that the human body is also similar to this.
There are nine holes in our body. Each one of them serves a purpose individually. Only if these function properly, the person remains alive. For all these, fundamentally we require oxygen. By handling the breath properly by doing the rechak, purak and kumbhak, we shall attain vaasi yoga. When the vaasi yoga is being done, the kundalini will also be attained and will result in realizing the Supreme Being.
But the human do not realizing this and go behind the unstable happiness and Paambaatti Siththar compares them to the dead body burning in the cemetery.
