Notes:

This couplet belongs to a set of couplets on the five types of cosmic designer-governors: creators, protectors, controllers, concealers, and revealers. I should point out that there are five basic powers of consciousness: creation, protection, regulation, concealment, and revelation or illuminationAll these five types of primordial cosmic designer-governors are subject to the supreme powers of creation, protection, regulation, concealment or obscuration, and revelation or illumination, of the OmniLight.

It is noteworthy that these couplets extend the notion of design beyond creation (not ex nihilo creation or “creation out of nothing”, but creation by a process of fine-tuning or development) to protection, regulation, concealment, and revelation. In other words, there is not only developmental creation, but also protection, regulation, concealment or obscuration, and revelation or illumination by these cosmic designer-governors.

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.
