Note: This couplet affirms that mental states or occurrences, e.g., anger, of living beings are subject to the supreme subduing, regulating, controlling, curbing powers (அடக்குதல் – adakkudhal) exercised by the OmniLight in accordance with self-determined laws

The Arutperunjothi Agaval is Ramalingam’s magnum opus of enlightenment poetry composed in 798 couplets in 1872. 

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