Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 751

இடுவெளி யனைத்து மியலொளி விளங்கிட

நடுவெளி நடுவே நாட்டிய விளக்கே!

The

Lamp

Of

Divine

Light,

Which

Illuminates

The

Distributive

Space

By

Centering

In

The

Central

Space,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This cryptic couplet affirms the reality of different kinds of spaces corresponding to different levels of reality. The term “இடுவெளி” (Iduveli) refers to the distributive space or the space in which things are distributed. It is derived from the word “இடுதல்” (Idudhal) which, in this context, means “to distribute”.

நடுவெளி” (naduveli) refers to the central space which, presumably, is the core space of all spaces.

In essence, this cryptic couplet affirms that the OmniLight is at the center of the central space to facilitate the illumination of distributive space and its contents.

This couplet continues a new series which uses the metaphor of lamp to describe the illuminative or enlightening powers of the OmniLight.

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.
