Justice N Kirubakaran of Madras High Court and Justice B. Pugalendhi’s bench made the above observations in a recent order. The bench said that in our country, it is believed that Sanskrit is the language of God alone and no other language has an equivalent. Undoubtedly, Sanskrit is an ancient language with a vast ancient literature. People believe that if the Sanskrit Vedas are recited, the Lord will listen to the pleas of the devotees.
In fact, the High Court was hearing a petition seeking consecration of a temple in Karur district of Tamil Nadu. The petition sought a direction to the government officials, including Hindu religious and charitable endowments, to organize abhisheka/kudamuzukku/nannirattu ceremony of Swami Tirukovil by chanting Thirumuraikal, Tamil.
The rise from the damru of Lord Shankar
During the hearing of the petition, the High Court said that ‘Tamil is not only one of the oldest languages of the world but also the ‘language of the gods’. It is believed that the Tamil language originated from Lord Shankar’s damru. The damru fell from his hand while Shiva was dancing. It is also believed that the Tamil language was composed by Lord Muruga.
The Madras High Court has to say that according to legend, Lord Shiva presided over the first Tamil Sangam. It is also believed that Lord Shiva played ‘Thiruvilayadal’ to test the knowledge of Tamil poets. This means that the Tamil language is associated with the gods. It is a divine language. It should be used while doing Abhishek.
