செம்மைத் திரையாற் சித்துறு வெளியை

அம்மையின் மறைக்கு மருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி!

The

Space

Of

Absolute

Consciousness

Completely

Concealed

In

Utter

Calm,

With

The

Ravishing

Red

Screen,

By

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Note: This couplet continues Ramalingam’s remarkable account of the colored Cosmic Screens by which the OmniLight conceals the manifold aspects of mundane, supramundane, and divine reality, from the perception or understanding of ego-bound souls.

In this context, it should be noted that since the OmniLight has obscured its governance with the first screen, the immense dark and dense screen of primordial matter-energy, the other screens are not visible to the unenlightened eye. Naturally, the realms which these screens hide are also opaque to the unenlightened.

Several of the couplets in this series affirm the reality of other, higher-order kinds of spaces (Tamil: வெளி or Veli). The space in which our universe of impure matter-energy exists is only one kind of lower-order space.

The Tamil word “அம்மை” (Ammai) in this couplet is used in the senses of “beauty” and “calmness”.

The cosmic red screen is the fourth one and hides the சித்துறு வெளி” or the Space of சித்து (Sitthu; Sanskrit: चित् or Chit) or Absolute Consciousness which was the subject of an earlier series of couplets.

Later couplets affirm that the OmniLight also graciously lifts or sets aside these glorious immense screens, removing their obscuration of the vision of the soul, commensurate with the soul’s effort to liberate itself from the threefold defilement and bondage:

ஆணவம் (āṇavam), or egoism, or the disposition to assert separation, independence, and dominance or superiority,

மாயை, or “Maya“, the identification with, and consequent subjection to, physical body and the laws of impure material stuff

கன்மம், or Karma, or the chain of cause and effect involving thoughts, desires, choices, actions, and their consequences.
