Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 295

மறைத்திடு தலைவரை மற்றுமண் டங்களை

அறத்தொடு வகுத்த வருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி!

Obscuring-Governors

And

Their

Worlds,

Wisely

Designed,

Organized,

Computed,

By

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

The Tamil expression “மறைத்திடு தலைவர்” refers to intelligent concealers or obscurers who are also governors or supervisors of agents and processes of obscuration or concealment in the cosmos. 

Obscuration or concealment of aspects, factors, processes, phenomena, entities, etc., in the cosmos is a requirement of development of knowledge. If everything was revealed at the outset, there would be no development of knowledge. It is also a requirement of order in the cosmos.

These earlier couplets in the Agaval also express the revelations of OmniLight to Ramalingam on the five types of primordial designer-governors. These higher beings and their worlds are inaccessible to humans and extraterrestrials in our universe. Therefore, the revelations of OmniLight to Ramalingam, as expressed in these couplets, are the only sources of our conceptions of their existence.

I should point out that there are five basic powers of consciousness: creation, protection, regulation (inclusive of apparent destruction), concealment, and revelation or illuminationAny function or task of consciousness, and any event or process in the cosmos, falls into one or the other of these five basic categories: creation, protection, regulation (inclusive of apparent destruction), concealment, and revelation or illumination. 

The five types of primordial cosmic designer-governors are themselves subject to the supreme powers of creation, protection, regulation (inclusive of apparent destruction), 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 (inclusive of apparent destruction), concealment or obscuration, and revelation or illumination, by design on the part of 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.
