OmniLight Invocations 365

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet 348:

அசைவில வசைவுள வாருயிர்த் திரள்பல

அசலற வகுத்த வருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி

The immobile wondrous forms of life,

The mobile marvelous forms of life,

In their stupendous variety of species,

Wholly wrought in excellence,

By the OmniLight of Supreme Compassion!

Note: This couplet draws a fundamental distinction, admitting extraordinary or exceptional variations, between mobile or locomotive and immobile or stationary forms of life. The latter include plants, trees, and corals which are classified as “sessile” or fixed permanently in one location.
