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: 778

சபையென துளமெனத் தானமர்ந் தெனக்கே

அபய மளித்ததோ ரருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி!

Adopting

My

Heart

As

Its

Sabhai

Or

Sacred

Hall,

And

Granting

Me

Security

And

Succor,

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. 

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.
