Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 565

ஆதி ஈறு அறியா அருள்  அரசாட்சியில்

சோதிமா மகுடம் சூட்டிய தந்தையே!

In

The

Government

Of

Grace,

Without

Beginning

And

End,

I

Have

Been

Crowned

With

The

Great

Diadem

Of

Divine

Light,

By the Supreme OmniLight Father!

Note: 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.
