🛕 Here is a remarkable prayer (Kolaru Pathigam Lyrics in English) addressed to Shiva composed by Thirugnana Sambandar, one of great saivite saints who were called as Nayanmar. Once the Pandya country of Tamil Nadu was under the influence of Jains, with the king himself converting himself to jain religion. At that time the queen who was a saivite requested Sambandar and Manikka Vasagar to visit their country and bring it back to saivism. At that time it seems both saints were in the holy place of Thirumaraikkadu (Vedaranyam).
🛕 Manikkavasagar was little worried to go because, it was at that time thought that the Jains were experts in evil magic. Then Sambandar sang this prayer, which essentially tells that neither the planets, nor the evil mantras nor the wild animals nor any other thing that can cause harm, can cause harm to the devotee of Lord Shiva. If this prayer is sung with devotion, it would definitely save us from anything that causes evil.
🛕 Kolaru Pathigam (10 Tamil verses on Lord Siva to disarm the planets) composed by saint Thirugnaana Sambandar, can be recited mentally before proceeding to the exam hall. The above verses were composed when he was told that the time was inauspicious to proceed to challenge his adversaries in an intellectualspiritual 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.
