Note:  The term “கருநிலை” refers to the “embryo” of the formation of stars. It is remarkable that in this couplet, composed in 1872, Ramalingam anticipates a discovery of twentieth century science by indicating that stars are formed in “embryos”. We now know that these are nebulas or interstellar clouds of dust and gas.

The Arutperunjothi Agaval is Ramalingam’s magnum opus of spiritual enlightenment poetry composed in 798 couplets in 1872. In later posts, I will offer commentaries on these verses.
