OmniLight Invocations 365

Rain clouds pouring rain over a desert landscape

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet 371:

வான்முகிற் சத்தியான் மழைபொழி வித்துயிர்

ஆனறக் காத்தரு ளருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி

From the powers of clouds,

Pour rain,

Protect living beings,

Dispel drought and destruction,

OmniLight of Supreme Compassion!

Note: The Arutperunjothi Agaval is Ramalingam’s magnum opus of enlightenment poetry composed in 798 couplets in 1872. The meditative recitation of these prayers helps to develop compassion for living beings.

In later posts, I will offer commentaries on these verses.
