Sri Ramana Tirup Palliezhucchi
« on: November 03, 2008, 02:54:53 PM »
Sri Ramana Tirup Palliezhuchi, is a composition with 10 verses,
by Muruganar. It is styled like Saint Manikkavachakar's Tiru Palliezhuchi,
sung in Tirup Perundurai, on Siva.  Tirup Palliezhuchi, is a early
morning song through which women wake up their Masters or Husbands,
for bath. 

Verse 5 reads:

The lotuses have bloomed, the Sun has risen,
The honey dews have disappeared, along with songs,
the conchshell, drums have started sounding,
And with these sounds, the bogus sastras have withered,
Everywhere, there is the humming of yazh, and veena,
From all directions devotees have come and are waiting for you,
Please open your eyelids and wake up, Tiru Venkata Ramana,
Please wake up and bless us!

Verse 9 reads:

The Sun has risen, at the summit of the hills,
The all pervading darkness has been driven away in the world,
The Truth that lies like a unripe fruit amidst leaves,
Amongst the various religions and philosphies.
You are that Truth, I keep my head on your lotus feet,
The Primordial Substance of all tattvas,
O, the Truth that is beyond the imaginations of all artistes,
Venkata Ramana, pleasse wake up and bless us!
