Note: The Light of Divine Compassion is present in all the four levels of existence: inmost, inner, outer, and outermost. But one must consciously realize and express it.

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.
