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: Couplet: 8

எல்லையில் பிறப்பெனு மிருங்கடல் கடத்தியென்

அல்லலை நீக்கிய வருட்பெருஞ் ஜோதி!

Helping

Me

To

Cross

The

Immense

Dark

Ocean

Of

Endless

Waves

Of

Birth

And

Death,

And

Terminating

My

Travail,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet clearly affirms reincarnation and the agency which liberates one from the self-created travail of undergoing the cycles of reincarnation, the OmniLight.

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.
