Bakthi - Thirumurai: Sing Kolaru Pathigam
By Sri Skanda's Warrior of Light
March 22, 2007
Last night, I dreamt that I was seated on the floor of a carpeted apartment. Also seated beside me, on my left, was my wife. We were both facing and praying to a picture of God Skanda that was placed on our altar in the apartment [See picture on right]. It was like the long small brown coffee table in my mother's house.
After we prayed, I got up and turned on the radio that was located beside the altar. To my surprise, it was my voice singing Kolaru Pathigam. So, I turned around to my wife and said, "Hey, Let's sing Kolaru Pathigam."
So, we both sat in front of Murugan and continued to chant Kolaru Pathigam. I then awoke.
This dream has a significant meaning to me since my wife and I were undergoing some personal obstacles in our life. And this song (Kolaru Pathigam) is a remedy to prevent karmic obstacles from causing misery in the lives of devotees. So, Bhagavan Skanda showed us what to do to overcome the difficulties in our life do daily parayanam (devout singing) of Kolaru Pathigam as part of our sadhana (spiritual practice).
