Here is a remarkable prayer addressed to Siva composed by Sambandar , one of great saivite saints who were called as Nayanmar. Once the Pandya country of Tamil Nadu was under the influence of Jains , with the king himself converting himself to jain religion. At that time the queen who was a saivite requested Sambandar and Appar to visit their country and bring it back to saivism. At that time it seems both saints were in the holy place of Thirumaraikkadu Vedaranyam. Manikkavasagar was little worried to go because , it was at that time thought that the Jains were experts in evil magic. Then Sambandar sang this prayer, which essentially tells that neither the planets, nor the evil mantras nor the wild animals nor any other thing that can cause harm, can cause harm to the devotee of Lord Siva.

The significance is that those who chant it or those who listen to it will find that all the evils eventually turn to good. This is what is reiterated again and again in the verses. Thiru Gnana Sambandhar was a child prodigy who was the recipient of "Gnanapal" divine milk from Mother Parvathi herself. He became a child saint and was completely devoted to Lord Neelkanta Siva. Sambandhar met Appar Thirunavukkuarasar in a place called Vedaranyam. The Queen of the Pandya country sent an emissary to them saying that the King had become a Jain under the influence of Jain monks.
She requested Sambandhar to visit Madurai and rid the country of Jains. But Appar was skeptical about this as he believed that the Jains could cause them harm. But Sambandhar smiled and sang the Kolaru Pathigam. In Tamil, KOL means planets as well as evil.
ARU in Tamil means that which cuts, shreds, blows into smithereens. The meaning of the word requires careful interpretation. What it actually means is that destruction of the evil effects of planets. For a devotee of Lord Neelakanta Siva who has Parvathi as his other half, chanting or listening to the hymn will convert all the evil into good.
