சிவபெருமானின் விரிசடையில் சூட்டுவதற்கு மலர்களை பறித்து வருவதையே தன் தொண்டாக முருக நாயனார் செய்து வந்தார்.
Muruga Nayanar excelled in his worship of Lord Siva. He was born in Tirupukalur, made famous by many other Nayanars also. Daily he would wake up well before sunrise, take bath, wear the sacred ash on his forehead, do his Nitya Karmas, and go to the garden with a basket. Repeating the Panchakshara he would collect flowers, and as mentioned in the Siva Agamas, make colorful garlands and offer to the Lord.
One day the great Jnana Sambandar came to his place. Muruga Nayanar invited him and worshipped him and won his favour. Sambandar took him as his dearest friend. Muruga Nayanar got the great good fortune of attending Sambandar’s wedding when he, the bride and all others (induding Muruga Nayanar) got merged in the Divine Effulgence of the Lord.
Muruga Nayanar’s devotion won for him Sambandar’s friendship, and, through that God-realization he attained the lotus feet of Lord Siva.
