PUBLISHERS’ NOTE
This is a most valuable and instructive book for the aspirants, particularly for the devotees
of Lord Siva. It contains fifteen chapters. It is full of instructions on practical Sadhana for attaining
Siva-Tattva or God-realisation. The chapters will speak for themselves. The secrets of
Siva-Tandava, Sakti-Yoga, Siva-Tattva, etc., are very nicely presented. The translation of the Saiva
Upanishads is a beautiful addition. The lives of Siva Acharyas, the Bhaktas and the Nayanars are
inspiring and soul-stirring. A study of their lives will make one’s life sublime and holy.

Up to this time, there has been no such presentation on this subject. The philosophical
portion is highly illuminating and helpful to the readers. The book contains the essence of all Saiva
Puranas, such as Periya Puranam, Linga Puranam, Siva Parakrama and Tiruvilayadal Puranam. Its
value is enhanced by the addition of some important Siva-Stotras with English translation.

The book is written in a most lucid and clear style. It must be studied by all religious-minded
persons, as it is of solid worth from the spiritual point of view.

Studies in Agamism

http://arutkural.tripod.com/tmcampus/aga-topics.html

By Agamism I mean a system of philosophy IMPLICIT in the cultural dynamics of the Dravidian as exemplified by the centrality given to the instituion of TEMPLE for culturing the human and uplifting to the metaphysical or spiritual realms.  There is amazing continuity from the ancient Sumerian days to the modern  exemplifying a dynamics and strength of its own. It stands also quite from the Vedic Hinduism and by the Sumerian beginnings it has , it also appears to be essentially Pre Vedic.

Studies in Agamic Psychology as developed by Tirumular

http://ulagank.tripod.com/studagapsy/agapsytop.html

Agamism, as opposed to Brahmanism, fostered the growth of human sciences as hermeneutic sciences by way of  opposing authoritarianism in philosophy and religion. Part of the bakthi revolt of the   5th to 7th century India appears to be the return to the natural, to existence after a millennium of false metaphysics of various kinds which petrified the mind by taking it  away from existence and hence a proper understanding of existence and hence conducting oneself well in this life itself. And aided by the naturalism of Tolkaappiyar where the psychological intricacies of the mind was explored in great detail by using the natural language as the chief means of accessing it, during the Bakthi period, behavior was analyzed in situ but now the deeper reaches.

Thirumular's Tirumantiram embodies numerous excursions in this direction and a detailed study indicates that there were several schools of thought supplementing and complimenting each other.

Having started my academic life  from Discourse Analysis as the way to access the mind and understand the dynamics of interactional behavior, it was quite natural for me to resuscitate this ancient tradition and develop a new psychology - Agamic Psychology-  using the Access Tests to help out the reaching of the inner mind. This series on Agamic Psychology  is designed to recapitulate the psychological thoughts of Thirumular helped out also by my own studies of the human mind by using Access Tests, Dream Analysis and so forth. The relevant articles are available in the Agamic Psychology Campus.

One of the most important aspects of this tradition is that behavior is analyzed not in laboratories but as it occurs in the world, and analysis of it  in situ and  as such it turns out to be and analysis of existence itself. Behavior is seen as PURPOSIVE and it is also discovered that when it becomes MEANINGFUL then it attains the necessary stability and concentration. So the primary goal appears to be to UNDERSTAND the genesis of MEANINGFUL behavior, how it obtains or does not in the world.

It is in the course of such questions that Thirumular hits upon the idea that there is aruL, the GIFT of BEING and because of which a person enjoys a MEANING for existence and thus attains a stability in behavior. A certain PURPOSIVENESS begins to control behavior and as the person develops meanings after meanings emerge and all because of this aruL and thereby making the person psychologically motivated and stable.
