Sri Ramana Tirup Poovalli
« on: November 04, 2008, 01:55:59 PM »
Muruganar's Tirup Poovalli, consisting of 31 verses, is on the lines
of Manikkachagar's.  This is in Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai.

Verse 3 reads like this:

He is more graceful than a mother and a father, and cares for us,
He likes only a codpiece that has become tattered,
He is the Siva, the Siddha, beyond our minds,
Let us praise Him and pluck the flowers!

Verse 11 reads like this:

He saved me with His Grace, when the thunderbolt of miseries
   descended on my head,
He came of His own and took hold of me, O Venkata,
My life is full of debts to Him, let us pluck flowers,
Praising His act of throwing mud on our karmas!
