Notes:

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.

This couplet points out the main causes of bondage of the individual soul and the enlightening and emancipatory action of the OmniLight Of Compassion. Ramalingam affirms that enlightenment and emancipation are ultimately the function of the supreme compassion of OmniLight and not the result of any effort by the individual soul. The proper efforts of the individual soul to attain enlightenment and emancipation are only a preparation for the decisive transformative action by the Supreme Light Of Compassion.
