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: 684

எண்ணிய படியெலா மியற்றுக வென்றெனைப்

புண்ணிய பலத்தாற் பொருந்திய நிதியே!

Inexhaustible

Treasure-Chest,

Which

Became

My

Intimate

Possession,

As

A

Result

Of

My

Accrued

Moral

Merit,

And

Empowered

Me

To

Create

And

Enact

As

I

Wish,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This series of couplets invokes the symbol of an inexhaustible treasure chest (Tamil: நிதி or Nidhi) to convey the maximal excellence of the nature of 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.
