OmniLight Invocations 365

Couplet 350:

வெவ்வே றியலொடு வெவ்வேறு பயனுற

அவ்வா றமைத்த வருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி

Diverse structures and qualities,

Varied functions and beneficial outcomes,

Of the six senses,

All designed accordingly by the OmniLight of Supreme Compassion!

Note: This couplet alludes to the previous couplet on the types of senses of living beings. The reference to design does not imply ex nihilo designed creation or designed creation out of nothing. Rather, as available examples of intelligent design by humans and other creatures suggest, it is a case of design achieved by a process of development. Ramalingam’s use of the word “தெருட்டல்” (fine-tuning) in other couplets is suggestive of this form of intelligent design by fine-tuning or development.
