Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 657

கற்பம் பலபல கழியினு மழியாப்

பொற்புற வளித்த புனிதமந் திரமே!

Immaculate

Divine

Mantra,

Which

Bestowed

On

Me

The

Benediction

Of

Imperishable

Excellence,

Radiant

Beauty,

And

Plenitude

Even

If

Aeons

Were

To

Pass,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

The Tamil word “பொற்பு” (Porppu) in this couplet refers to a condition of excellence, beauty, and plenitude or abundance.

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.
