OmniLight Invocations 365

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet 376:

அகப்புற வமுதளித் தைவரா திகளை

அகப்படக் காத்தரு ளருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி

Inner ambrosia,

Sustains cosmic governors,

The Primal Five:

Creators, Protectors, Destroyers,

Concealers, and Revealers,

Subordinated

By the Supreme Compassion of OmniLight!

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.
