OmniLight Invocations 365

Symbol of Divine Light in the சத்திய ஞான சபை (Sathiya Gnana Sabhai) or The Great Hall of Truth-Knowledgea place of special manifestation of OmniLight.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 622

ஆக்குறு மவத்தைக ளனைத்தையுங் கடந்துமேல்

ஏக்கற நிறைந்த வென்றனி யின்பே!

Beyond

The

States

And

Sufferings

Of

Embodied

Existence,

Immaculate

Transcendent

Fullness,

OmniLight Bliss Supreme!

Note: This couplet continues with the series on another aspect of the essential nature of OmniLight: Supreme Bliss (Tamil: இன்பம்; Sanskrit: आनन्द or Ānanda).

Ramalingam has developed the Vedantic notion of Satchidananda in original ways in these couplets on the சத்து or Reality (Sanskrit: सत्) or Sat), சித்து or Intelligence (Sanskrit: चित् or Chit), and இன்பம் or Bliss (Sanskrit: आनन्द or Ānanda) aspects of the essential nature of OmniLight (அருட்பெருஞ்ஜோதி).

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 couplets.
