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. It is noteworthy that several of these couplets describe the transformations in his body occurring as a result of this extraordinary realization.

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.

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. It is noteworthy that several of these couplets describe the transformations in his body occurring as a result of this extraordinary realization.

This couplet describes the blossoming or regeneration of the brain and the release of “ambrosia”, either hormones or an unknown regenerative fluid, in the body.

It is noteworthy that in his second “Petition to the OmniLight”, Ramalingam distinguishes between two types of brain structures, the egocentric and the transpersonal. The former is the basis of egocentric operations of thought and feeling and the latter dormant structure is the basis of operations which facilitate enlightenment or the realization of the OmniLight.

This couplet may refer also to the full activation of the transpersonal brain at the touch of the OmniLight.

The Subtle Chakras Of Human Body

Seminal

Fluid

In

The

Center,

OmniLight Of Supreme Compassion!

Notes:

The Tamil word “உரத்தல்” (urattal) means “to become firm or hard”. The word “இடை” (idai) means “center”. It could mean the center of the abdomen, or the Svadhisthana or Sacral chakra in Kundalini yoga.

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. It is noteworthy that several of these couplets describe the transformations in his body occurring as a result of this extraordinary realization.

In his second “Petition To The OmniLight” (Suddha Sanmarga Vinappam), Ramalingam refers to two forms of movement of the seminal fluid in the male human body: the ordinary downward movement and emission in the sexual act and the extraordinary inner and upward movement nourishing the subtle energies and faculties of the body and mind. The latter process is the result of celibacy and sublimation or transmutation of the sexual energy for enlightenment. It must not be conflated with the practice of suppression of ejaculation in sexual union.

This couplet refers to this extraordinary inner and upward movement of the concentrated seminal fluid resulting from the practice of contemplation and realization of the OmniLight.
