Symbol of OmniLight in the சத்திய ஞான சபை (Sathiya Gnana Sabhai) or The Great Hall of Truth-Knowledgea place of special manifestation of OmniLight.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 651

அண்டகோ டிகளெலா மரைக்கணத் தேகிக்

கண்டுகொண் டிடவொளிர் கலைநிறை மணியே!

Radiant

Gem

Of

Supreme

Beauty

And

Knowledge,

Whose

Light

Illuminates

Billions

Of

Worlds

Instantaneously

And

Renders

Them

Cognizable,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet continues the series of couplets on மணி (Gemstone), மந்திரம் (Mantra), and மருந்து (Medicine). The OmniLight and its revelatory and other powers are described in terms of these three central metaphors of precious gemstone, mantra, and medicine.

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.
