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 Couplet: 783

சிறுநெறி செல்லாத் திறனளித் தழியா

துறுநெறி யுணர்ச்சிதந் தொளியுறப் புரிந்து!

Bestowing

Lower

Paths

And

Practices,

And

Illuminating

My

Understanding

Of

The

True

Path

To

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.
