Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 625

இம்மையு மறுமையு மியம்பிடு மொருமையும்

எம்மையு நிரம்பிடு மென்றனி யின்பே!

Pervading

And

Abounding

In

This

Mundane

Reality,

The

Other

Supramundane

Reality,

The

State

Of

Liberation

From

Both,

And

The

Transcendent

State,

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.
