Sri Ramana Tiruc Chathakam
« on: November 05, 2008, 10:46:14 AM »
Sri Ramana Tiruc Chathakam, is a composition of 100 verses,
divided into ten groups of ten songs each.  It speaks about
the bhakti and non attachement, as roads to salvation.  Muruganar
has sung these songs in the same fashion, as Manikkavachagar,
who has also compoed 100 verses under the title Tiruc Chathakam.

Verse I.6 reads like this:

Without thinking god and only doing karmas, day and night,
Following such futile path, O mind, you have been deluded and
There are innumerable people who trusted the karmas and left
   the godhead,
I shall always live praying the feet of Venkata, and leave all the
   vengeful karmas. 

Verse II. 2 reads like this:

O Venakata, with eyes on your forehead, that vanquished
    the god of love,
I do not sweep your Asram, I do not polish it,
I do not pick the unwanted leaves and plants,
I am only rushing towards death, I shall unite with you on death.
