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.

பண்ணிய தவத்தாற் பழுத்தசெம் பொன்னே!

Resplendent

Gold

Treasure,

Which

Emerged

In

My

Soul

In

Brilliance

And

Beauty,

To

Fulfill

All

My

Wishes,

As

A

Result

Of

My

Tapas

Or

Spiritual

Austerity,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet continues the series of couplets on the maximal excellence of the nature of OmniLight. These couplets also invoke gold and its aspects to convey this maximal excellence of the nature of OmniLight. The imperishable and immaculate nature of the OmniLight Gold is also contrasted with the perishable and imperfect nature of mundane gold.

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.
