An old photo of Sathiya Dharuma Saalai (The Home of True Charity) in Vadalur, Tamilnadu, South India – It was opened by Ramalingam on May 23, 1867, and has fed the poor and hungry to this day.

Arutperunjothi Agaval: Couplet: 723

என்பெருங் குணமே என்பெருங் கருத்தே

என்பெருந் தயவே யென்பெருங் கதியே!

My

Greatest

Virtue,

My

Greatest

Contemplation,

My

Greatest

Compassion,

And

My

Greatest

Refuge,

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.
