Sivagnanabotham


Sivanganabotham is a work in 12 sutras, 40 lines which comprise 216 words. Thus it can be seen, the work is small but the greatness is indeed immeasurable with meanings stretches to infinity.Written by St Meykandar is in four sections-each section having three sutras under it. Each sutra formulated a fundamental philosophic truth from the point of Saiva Siddhanta and the formulation is such as to imply two or three vital issues arising from the standpoint of the other schools of thought, then final decisions on them. Meykandar has structured it and subdivides it under several sections called Adhikaranas. Each Adhikaranam has 3 limbs namely i) The proposition – Merkoll ii) The reason – Yetu iii) Illustration – Udharanam. Each of these issues forms the basis for separate discussion and the discussion that centres on a particular issue is called ‘Adhikaranam’.The controversy of opinion still exist on the originality of the text. Some scholars argue that the twelve sutras are from Raurava agama in Sanskrit while some say the works are Tamil origin. The purpose of Sivanganabotham is to present the synthesis of truth contained in the four Vedas and twenty eight Saivagamas. The aim of this work is to prove the excellence of the Siddhanta philosophy.It should be noted that Meykandar’s philosophy is called ‘Suddhadvaitham’ as against Kevaladvaitham (monoism) by Sankara. Now there are several monasteries dedicated to spread Meykandar’s system from this great work.The way in which Meykandar discusses the word ‘Advaita’ in Sivanganabotham is thought provoking and subtle Advaita means ‘Non-different’. Meykandar cites relationship between the body and soul. The soul identifies itself with God as to be one though both of them are substantially different. Sivangana Swamigal, the great commentator of this work says in his Bhasyam, “ This work investigates the contents of the Path of Divine wisdom expounded in the Agamas, it’s purpose is to clarify matter that appears to be confusing and to show the synthsis of truth as it is contained in the Agamas themselves”.
