OmniLight Invocations 365

courtyard

An old photo of Siddhi Valaagam (சித்தி வளாகம்) or “Abode of Adepthood”, Mettukuppam, Vadalur, Tamilnadu, India. It was Ramalingam’s final residence and venue of his last talk in October 1873.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 722

என்பெரு வரமே யென்பெருந் தரமே

என்பெரு நெறியே யென்பெரு நிலையே!

My

Greatest

Boon,

My

Maximal

Excellence,

My

Greatest

Principle,

My

Greatest

State

And

Being,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

In this couplet, Ramalingam continues to celebrate his realization of the OmniLight and the nature of his realization.

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.
