OmniLight Invocations 365

Entrance to the site of the radiant symbol (Jothi or orb of light) of OmniLight in the Sathiya Gnana Sabhai (1872), or Hall Of Truth-Knowledge, designed by Ramalingam.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 627

எல்லா நிலைகளி னெல்லா வுயிருறும்

எல்லா வின்புமா மென்றனி யின்பே!

One

Bliss

In

All

States

Of

Bliss

Of

All

Beings,

OmniLight Bliss Supreme!

Note: This couplet concludes 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.
