Sri Ramana Ananda Malai
« on: November 05, 2008, 03:08:07 PM »
This is a composition of ten verses, from Muruganar, on the model
of Ananada Malai, of Manikkavachagar.

Verse 2 reads like this:

All the good devotees are, with your grace enjoying the
   bliss of Jnana,
I have, Venakta, been thinking about impermanent things
   as permanent,
O this unlettered, dangerous dog, have sought the desires
   and drowned into the dark ocean and deluded,
O shower me the limitless rains of Siva experience, please grace me.

Verse 4 reads like this:

Like a mad elephant, this lowly dog swelled with ego,
O Venakata, with your graceful eyes, I lost my gunas,
My stature, my learning and my mind,
O tell me when I can lie at your feet, losing everything, other
   than my Self?

(Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, Tamil, 1998 edition, Sri Muruganar,
  Sri Ramansramam.  Translation, my own.)
