Sri Ramana Arut Pathu
« on: November 08, 2008, 01:12:45 PM »
Sri Ramana Arut Pathu, is a composition of ten verses and is
styled as Arut Pathu of Manikkavachagar.  It is in Sri Ramana
Sannidhi Murai.

Verse 3 reads like this:

In the world you came as a human being,
And took the name as Ramana,
O Pari*, the Sun of Wisdom,
You held us and dissolved our minds,
With your floodtide of Bliss,
Like a rain cloud, O the Ocean of Bliss,
You saw me, called me, and graced me!

(* Pari is a philanthrophic Tamil king, who
     gave abundant gifts to poets.)

Verse 8 reads like this:

You held this sinner and burnt all the karmas,
You saw me, called me and graced me, O Guru Ramana Deva!
You swelled the flood tide of bliss in the devotees who contemplate
    you,
O the Well of Bliss, please call me to drink your grace!
