Title: Sri Ramana Pandaaya Vedam
Post by: Subramanian.R on November 05, 2008, 09:59:18 AM
Sri Ramana Pandaaya Vedam, of Muruganar, is styled as
Pandaaya Naanmarai, of Manikkavachagar.  Muruganar's
composition consists of 10 verses.

Verse 1 reads like this:

The Ancient Vedas even with their heads
Cannot see His golden feet, For this
Lowly dog, He was gracious to give me a golden palanquin!
He is my mother, Venkaata!

Verse 5 reads like this:

He is the King, He robbed me of my self, He is the Guru,
He consumed my individual soul, and then took this flesh
Of my body for His service,
Ever graceful Venkata!
