The

Supreme

Lamp,

Which

Radiated

The

Divine

Light

In

My

Heart,

And

Dispelled

The

Darkness

Of

Anavam

Or

The

Separative

Egoism,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This couplet marks a new series which uses the metaphor of lamp to describe the illuminative or enlightening powers of 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.

சிற்சபை நடுவே திருநடம் புரியும்

அற்புத மருந்தெனு மானந்த மருந்தே!

The

Medicine

Of

Bliss,

Which

Dances

In

The

Of

The

Chitsabhai

Or

The

Inner

Consciousness-Space,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

This is the last couplet in the series on மணி (Gemstone), மந்திரம் (Mantra), and மருந்து (Medicine). The OmniLight and its revelatory and other powers are described in terms of these three central metaphors of precious gemstone, mantra, and medicine.
