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.
