Sri Ramana Adaikala Pathu
« on: November 06, 2008, 11:24:57 AM »
Sri Ramana Adaikala Pathu, is a decad in Sri Ramana Sannidhi
Murai, of Murganar.  This is styled after Manikkavachagar's
Adaikala Pathu, in Tiruvachakam.  This is called Decad of Surrender.

Verse 6 reads like this:

O Venkata, Your great devotees, have conquered the delusions
Of Maya, by holding on to your form and surrendering to you,
Even though I am getting the fortune of serving you, still
I am deluded by this Maya, at times, due to my karmas,
I surrender to you,  O my Master! 

Verse 7 reads like this:

Your devotees holding your golden feet,
Have conquered this world through their perseverent character,
And became great with their deeds, O Venkata,
I am still going after this blemishful Maya, thinking it as real,
Kindly grace me, O kind Master,  I surrender to you.
