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: 726

உண்ணகை தோற்றிட வுரோமம் பொடித்திடக்

கண்ணினீர் பெருகிக் கால்வழிந் தோடிட!

Laughter

Of

Joy,

Horripilation

In

The

Body,

Tears

Streaming

Down

To

The

Feet,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet continues the series of couplets which describe Ramalingam’s extraordinary realization of the OmniLight. It is unique in the annals of religious or mystical experience. It is noteworthy that several of these couplets describe the transformations in his body occurring as a result of this extraordinary 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.
