என்னுளே விரிந்த என்னுடை யன்பே!

Budding,

Blossoming,

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. 

After the previous couplets on the physical transformations accompanying Ramalingam’s extraordinary experience and realization, this couplet continues to describe other transformations in his being.

It affirms that all his transformative experiences pertain to Love Supremethe OmniLight. Ramalingam used this expression “Love Supreme” (Tamil: தனி அன்பே – thani anbey) almost a hundred years before John Coltrane‘s use of it in the title of his album “A Love Supreme” released in 1965.

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.
