Dakshinamurthy Stothram – Sloka 2 – Introduction – Part 3 – The Giant Tree, the Magician and a Tamil film song

From the last blog after watching the videos about spider, we understood that God is The Creator; but ended up with a doubt – how does God create the world? What materials does He use? How does He present his creation? Before answering these questions we must have a look at two more videos and hear a Tamil Film Song. Curious ? Here we go!

First let us see a video titled “Sequoia in a Snowstorm” from the National Geographic channel.

Now let us come to the core issues on this video.

From where did this gigantic Sequoia tree come from ? Well, it came from this simple looking seed

Sequoia Tree Seed

How is it possible for such a gigantic tree to hide inside a small seed? Tons of wood, millions of leaves, huge number of branches etc. No way! Then how ? Watch another video (a bit long)

Now let us see a magic show in 1957 by the legendary Indian Magician PC Sorcar.

What did PC Sorcar do in the magic show? Didn’t he keep creating animals after animals from that flat screen? Didn’t he cut that girl into two and bring her back as one living entity? Is it a creation or an illusion?

These two videos are real life happenings – aren’t they?

Now let us listen to a Song penned by the legendary Tamil Poet Kannadasan in the film “Valar Pirai”.

Here is the lyrics in Tamil

பூஜ்ஜியத்துக்குள்ளே ஓரு ராஜ்ஜியத்தை ஆண்டு கொண்டு

புரியாமலே இருப்பான் ஒருவன் – அவனை

புரிந்து கொண்டால் அவன் தான் இறைவன்

தென்னை இளநீருக்குள்ளே தேங்கியுள்ள ஓட்டுக்குள்ளே

தேங்காயைப் பொல் இருப்பான் ஒருவன் – அவனை

தெரிந்து கொண்டால் அவன் தான் இறைவன்

முற்றும் கசந்ததென்று பற்றறுத்து வந்தவர்க்கு

சுற்றமென நின்றிருப்பான் ஒருவன் – அவனை

தொடர்ந்து சென்றால் அவன் தான் இறைவன்

கோழிக்குள் முட்டை வைத்து முட்டைக்குள் கோழி வைத்து

வாழைக்கும் கன்று வைத்தான் ஒருவன் – அந்த

ஏழையின் பெயர் உலகில் இறைவன்

Meaning – The guy who rules the Infinite Universe through emptiness, the guy who resides as a kernel inside a tough shell of a coconut from the coconut tree, the guy who becomes a relative of monks who abdicate everything in life, the guy who keeps a chicken in an egg and an egg in side a chicken and the guy who keeps the sapling inside the trunk of a banana tree – if you can understand and follow that guy, then that guy is the God.

Confused completely further ! How does He do it ? It is time that we should get some answers to our doubt. Let us straight away get into Dakshinamurthy Sthothram – Sloka 2 in the next blog where we will get our doubts cleared by Adi Sankaracharya.
