Vel Maaral (‘வேல் மாறல்’)
Exchange of Vel
Compiled by Vallimalai Sri Sachidananda SWamigal
(Reproduced from Translation of Shri. P.R.Ramachander)
Vel is the SAkthi weapon given to Lord Muruga by his mother SAkthi, to help him kill Asura called Sura Padma.
Vel can put an end to your worries, Arunagiri Nathar has written a chapter consisting of 16 verses on Vel and this is called Vel Vaguppu.Chanting it is supposed to put an end to diseases of body, mind and the soul,Vallimalai Schidananda swamigal has compiled this prayer using the verses of Vel Vaguppu.Here all the 16 verses of Vel Vaguppu are repeated randomly four times. After ending the repletion there are two verses praying Vel from Kandhar Alankaram of Arunagiri nathar and Thirumurugathu padai of Nakkerar
All people of tamil Nadu have experienced the great power of chanting this compilation to cure all type of diseases.
In face book , I read the experience of a lady who was admitted in hospital due to severe heart attack. The doctor was doubtful of her recovery. Then her friend made her this great compilation. With great faith that lady read the prayer and she felt she should chant verse 14. Next day she was completely cured of all her problems. When I searched for the prayer , I found it had 66 verses. I wanted it to be made available to people who do not know how to read Tamil. God soon made me realize that the 64 verses were four times repetition of the 16 verses of Vel Vaguppu of Arunagiri nadhar. With help of God I have completed this translation within a day. May this recitation help you get cured of all your diseases
