சின்போர்வைச் சாக்கியரும் மாசுசேருஞ் சமணரும்

அன்பாய கோயிலே கோயிலாக வமர்ந்தீரே.

Very few of these verses have so far appeared in English.  In 2004, about 1800 verses from a long poem entitled Padamalai, which originally appeared in volume 9 of Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham, were translated and appeared in a book of that title,  (Padamalai, tr. T.V. Venkatasubramanian, Robert Butler and David Godman.)
but other than this, only a few stray translated verses have appeared in the writings of Prof. K. Swaminathan, (A few verses from Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham can be found in Homage to the Presence of Sri Ramana, translated by K. Swaminathan and published
by Sri Ramanasramam.), Sadhu Om and Michael James.

T.V. Venkatasubramanian and David Godman have recently translated a selection of verses from the eight volumes of Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham and arranged them thematically under the title The Shining of My Lord. (There will be a few extra verses from other works by Muruganar, but the vast majority will be from Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham.). The book will be published later this year. Here is one of its sections entitled 'The Guru':

Verses from Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham composed by Muruganar:

Tr. T.V. Venkatasubramanian and David Godman:

When Muruganar passed away in 1973, a huge portion of his poetic output, estimated to be about 18,000 verses, still remained unpublished.   A few months before his death he made it clear that he wanted Sadhu Om, his long time literary collaborator, to take charge of his manuscripts because he knew he was the only person who had the capacity, the knowledge and the enthusiasm to organize his vast collection and bring it out in a coherent form. Sadhu Om took on the challenge and spent much of the remainder of his own life copying out the verses and arranging them in a thematic way.

His efforts were supported by Prof. K. Swaminathan who, in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, was the chief editor of Mahatma Gandhi's Collected Works and vice president of the Ramana Kendra in New Delhi.  Using his influence and government connections, Prof.
Swaminathan secured financial support for Sadhu Om's project.  In the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, nine new volumes of Muruganar's previously unpublished Tamizh verses were
brought out in a series entitled Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham, (Sri Ramana Jnana Bodham can be translated as The Experience of Jnana Bestowed by Sri Ramana, or Experiencing the Jnana that is Sri Ramana.) all published by the Delhi Ramana Kendra. The government subsidy paid for the printing, allowing each volume to go on sale for the bargain price of Rs 10 per copy.  These books have recently gone out of print, but all the volumes have been scanned and can nowadays be read on Sri Ramanasramam website. (http: // www. sriramanamaharshi.org/resource-centre/
publications/ramana-jnana-bodham/).

41.  Brahman alone is of the form of Being Awareness, of the nature of the seat of the delusion.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss.  All is naught, non existent for me.

42.  Brahman is beyond the expression of words, the embodiment of Being Awareness Bliss.  I am the form of Being Awareness Bliss.  This world is never generated.

43.  Brahman alone is this, always real, eternally free and taint-less. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the only one, ever joyous.

44. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, more perfect than the most perfect and the great. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the all pervading Lord.

45.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, luminous with name and form. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the pure and endless joy.

46.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, the bestower of the highest joy.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, just being, beyond real and unreal.

47.  Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, transcending all and undiminishing.
Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, of the form of liberation, the auspicious and inauspicious.

48. Brahman is indeed Being Awareness Bliss, not in the least limited whatsoever. Brahman is all of this, pure, enlightened and stainless.

49,50.  I am of the form of Being Awareness Bliss.  This world is unmanifest.  This chapter is the Truth, and the bestower of instantaneous liberation. It is the remover of all forms of sorrow and the giver of complete knowledge, bringing about perennial joy;
the giver of peace and self control.

51.  One whose heart is like the honey bee constantly engaged in the enjoyment of the lotus feet of the Great Lord, the killer of Death,  -- at whose stainless and divine feet celestial beings in multitudes bow in veneration, and who is the sole cause of creation - he shall become worthy of His Grace.

Thus concludes chapter 33 entitled 'Topic of the form of Being Awareness Bliss' in the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

அலையாரும் புனல்துறந்த அமணர்குண்டர் சாக்கியர்

நிலையார்ந்த கோயிலே கோயிலாக நின்றீரே.
