Sri Ramana Chenni Pathu
« on: November 13, 2008, 11:39:30 AM »
Sri Ramana Chenni Pathu, is a composition by Murugnar, in Sri
Ramana Sannidhi Murai, and it contains 10 verses.

Verse 2 reads like this:

Like eating the stale rice without the ghee, I was reading
    the scriptures, which proclaim false truths, which have no meaning. 
The Lord, Venkata, took hold of me and ruled me, this lowly dog
     eradicating all my doubts,
He is beyond even praise of Vedas, which do not proclaim its shame,
I want to place my head on his lotus like feet, which is Truth, and
      be blissful.

Verse 4 reads like this:

The god of Arunachala, Ramana, who could not be seen even
    by Brahma who travelled in swan and Vishnu who went as a boar,
He is the god of the South, Venkata who dwells in my mind happily,
Even the Vedas stutter to praise him, he is of feet like lotus,
I shall wear his golden feet on my head, and shall have bliss and glory!

Arunachala Siva.
