Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 378

காலமு நியதியுங் காட்டியெவ் வுயிரையும்

ஆலுறக் காத்தரு ளருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி

Passages of Time,

Regularities of Nature,

Day and night,

The Dances of Seasons,

Presented to living beings,

Producing delight,

Protecting them,

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.
