Sri Ramana Pidittha Pathu
« on: November 05, 2008, 02:49:48 PM »
Sri Ramana Pidittha Pathu, is a composition by Muruganar with
eleven verses, styled like Manikkavachakar's Pidittha Pathu.

Verse 6 reads like this:

O like the ornament that appeared from gold, stayed in gold,
      and disappered in god,
All that happened within me, stayed with me, and disappeared
   within me, I realized,
You gave me an experience of you, and nothing other than you,
    O Venakata,
I have tightly caught you within me, where can you go hereafter?

Verse 11 reads like this:

The great gods were surprised and placed their fingers on
   their noses!
Upon seeing me, this lowly dog, and you held me on a
   palanquin and made me proud in their eyes!
With your meaningful looks, that are as sharp as swords,
   you took hold of me and ruled me,
I held you tightly in my grip, where can you go hereafter?
