There is no rebirth! – Civavakkiyam 47


கறந்தபால் முலைப்புகா, கடைந்தவெண்ணெய் மோர்புகா;
உடைந்துபோன சங்கின்ஓசை உயிர்களும் உடற்புகா;
விரிந்தபூ உதிர்ந்தகாயும் மீண்டுபோய் மரம்புகா;
இறந்தவர் பிறப்பதில்லை இல்லைஇல்லை இல்லையே.

“Milk does not return to the udder,nor butter to butter milk.
nor the life within the sea shell,when it breaks,to its body.
The blown flower,fallen fruit do not return to the tree.
The dead are not born,never,never,never!”(47)

Poet :Civavakkiyar
Translated by Kamil Zvelebil.

The mainstream Hinduism believes in rebirth. The main goal of any person is to attain salvation after their death and get relived from the life cycle. But the Shidda have a very different take on Salvation. They believe God is everywhere and hence within you. To realise the god you have gain true knowledge and chase away all the ignorance. To attain true knowledge you have to extend your life as long as possible. So you should take care of your body.Shidda philosophy can be summarized by this line of Thirumular ‘உடம்பை வளர்த்தேன் உயிர் வளர்த்தேன’ .

  1. vairam, were sidhas only men? were there any women poets in this line? I am deeply affected by their philosophy… it smells of REAL LIFE!!!

  2. ஐயன்மீர் பொருளை நன்றாக ஆய்ந்துணரவும்.
    இறந்தவர் என்பது கண்ணனாக இறந்தவர் மீண்டும் கண்ணனாகவே பிறப்பதில்லை.
    இறந்தது உடல் மாத்திரமே.ஆன்மா அல்ல.

    பிறவிப் பெருங்கடல் நீந்துவர் நீந்தார்
    இறைவன் அடிசேரா தார்.

    பிறப்பென்னும் பேதைமை நீங்கச் சிறப்பென்னும்
    செம்பொருள் காண்பது அறிவு.

    உறங்கு வதுபோலுஞ் சாக்காடு உறங்கி
    விழிப்பது போலும் பிறப்பு.

  3. Hello friend It is me again. The gist of the stanza is that those who “dead” when he is in the body, he will not born again. The “dead” has no passions, longings, lust etc. and thereby he has not to get back as reward. As per the Karma Theory every deeds are rewarded and to enjoy or suffer the results of deeds rebirth is essential. As the siddhas give up the results of their act, they are not suffered and hence no rebirth. Consider the inner meanings of Krishnarpanam and Sivarpanam . Thank you
