99.   வெதாந் தத்தே வேறற விளங்கும்
          வேதப் பொருளரு ளருணாசலா.

        O Arunachala! Graciously bestow (upon me the experience of )
        the reality of the Vedas, which shines ( as one ) without another in Vedanta.

Note :  In this verse Sri Bhagavan reveals that the Veda porul ( the reality, import or essence of the Vedas) is only that which shines as one without another in Vedanta ( the conclusion or end of the Vedas).  In other words, the essential import of the Vedas is only the non dual supreme reality, which is revealed in Vedanta to be the real Self, which shines one without another as the one and only truth.

100.    வைதலை வாழ்த்தா வைத்தருட் குடியா
                  வைத்தெனை விடாதரு ளருணாசலா.

          O Arunachala! Taking (all my words of ) abuse as praise, and taking ( me ) as a subject
          ( of Your kingdom of ) grace, graciously do not ( ever) forsake me.

574
97.   வீடுவிட் டீர்த்துள வீடுபுக்குப் பையவுன்
               வீடுகாட் டினையரு ளருணாசலா.


       O  Arunachala!  Entering (my) heart abode stealthily (unknown to anyone) 
       and dragging ( me) out of (my) home, you revealed Your (true) home ( the state of liberation).
       (Such is your ) grace.

Note:  The Tamil word veedu which used three times in this verse can mean house, home, abode or Liberation.


98.   வெளிவிட்டே னுன்செயல் வெறுத்திடா துன்னருள்
               வெளிவிட் டெனைக்கா வருணாசலா.

       O Arunachala!  I have thus openly disclosed Your (secret) act ( of grace).  Without resenting
       ( me for having done so), openly shower Your grace and save me.

575

95.   வாவென் றகம்புக்குன் வாழ்வரு ளன்றேயென்
             வாழ்விழந் தேனரு ளருணாசலா.


       O Arunachala !  The very moment  that (selecting me by) 'come saying come , (You) enter (my) heart and bestow
       (upon me)  Your life ( Your state of Self), I have lost my life ( my individuality). 
       Therefore bestow   (Your) grace (upon me in this manner).

Note:  This verse may also be taken to be an expression of attainment:  O Arunachala! 
 The very moment that, saying come, (You) entered (my) heart and bestowed (upon me) Your life.  I lost my life.(such is Your)grace!


96.    விட்டிடிற் கட்டமாம் விட்டிடா துனையுயிர்
             விட்டிட வருள்புரி யருணாசலா.

         O Arunachala! if (you) leave  (me); it will be a (terrible) affliction ( for me).

       O Arunachala, You are the (supreme) gain.(when it is so) what gain
       did You obtain by obtaining me, who has no gain here or hereafter.



94.   வரும்படி சொலிலை வந்தென்  படியள
           வருந்திடுன் றலைவிதி யருணாசலா.

       O  Arunachala!  Did You not tell (me) to come ( to You)? (Therefore,
       now that I have come to You) come and give (me) my measure ( all that I need).  Suffer (thus for me ).
       (This is ) Your fate.

Note:  Having once called the devotee to Him, it is the duty and fate of the Lord to suffer for him
by providing all his needs, both spirtually and materially.

 91.   ராப்பக லில்லா வெறுவெளி வீட்டில்
             ரமித்திடு வோம்வா வருணாசலா.

 
        O Arunachala, come, let us enjoy ( the supreme Bliss ) in the house of empty space
       (the pure space of self), which is devoid of night and day (that is, which is devoid of the
        limitation of time and space).

        O Arunachala , come let us be happy in the house of empty space, which is devoid of night and day.

 Explanatory Note: O Arunachala, come let us enjoy the supreme bliss in the pure and empty space of self, which is devoid of the limitations of time and space.

92.   லட்சியம் வைத்தரு ளஸ்திரம் விட்டெனைப்
             பட்சித்தாய் பிராணனோ டருணாசலா

       O Arunachala! Taking (me) as (Your) target and releasing the arrow of (Your) Grace.
       You devoured me ( the ego) along with ( my breath (prana).

Note: When the ego is destroyed in the state of Self absorption (samadhi), the breath or prana also subsides.

89.   யாருமறி யாதென் மதியினை மருட்டி
            யெவர்கொளை கொண்ட தருணாசலா.


       O Arunachala, who(was it but You that), unknown to anyone, enchanged and stole away my mind.

90.   ரமணனென் றுரைத்தேன் ரோசங் கொளாதெனை
            ரமித்திடச் செயவா வருணாசலா.

O Arunachala, I declared 'Ramana' without taking offence, come to make me happy.

Note:   The word ' Ramana' means 'Lord', husband' beloved one' or ' bestower of happiness'.  The meaning implied by the words 'Ramanan endru uraitten' (I declared 'Ramana') is, I declared that it was only you, my Lord or Ramana, who ruined my living and stole away my mind'.

584
87.    மௌனியாய்க் கற்போன் மலரா திருந்தால்
           மௌனமி தாமோ வருணாசலா.


         O Arunachala , if you remain silent like a stone without responding
         (in spite of my having entreated You so much), will this silence befit You?


88.    யவனென் வாயின் மண்ணினை யட்டி
           யென்பிழைப் பொழித்த தருணாசலா.
 
        O Arunachala, who ( was it but You that)  ruined my living by putting mud in my mouth?

Note:   Putting mud in one's mouth is a Tamil idiom meaning to deprive one of one's means of livelihood.   Since the five senses are the mouth through  which the mind or ego feeds upon sense objects, putting mud in my mouth here means preventing the mind from feeding upon sense objects, second and third persons that the mind lives.   When the Grace of Arunachala prevents the mind from feeding upon sense objects, the mind loses its means of livelihood and dies.

85.   மொட்டை யடித்தெனை வெட்ட வெளியினீ
           நட்டமா டினையென்  னருணாசலா.


        O  Arunachala, having shaved me (of all my deeply rooted tendencies of vasanas),
        you danced your dance (as 'I-I') in the open space ( of self).  What a wonder this  is !


86.   மோகந் தவிர்த்துன் மோகமா வைத்துமென்
            மோகந்தீ ராயென் னருணாசலா.
       
       O my Arunachala, fulfil my desire, dispelling my desire
       ( for the body and world) and making me desirous of You.

Explanatory Note:  O Arunachala, my real Self, fulfil these two desires of mine:
remove my delusion of attachment to the body and world and grant me even increasing love for you.
