OmniLight Invocations 365

Entrance to the site of the radiant symbol (Jothi or orb of light) of OmniLight in the Sathiya Gnana Sabhai (1872), or Hall Of Truth-Knowledge, designed by Ramalingam.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 656

வான்பெறற் கரிய வகையெலாம் விரைந்து

நான்பெற வளித்த நாதமந் திரமே!

Resounding

Mantra

Of

Primordial

Vibration

And

Sound,

Which

Swiftly

Bestowed

On

Me

The

Great

Goods

Difficult

Even

For

The

Celestials

To

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.
