Sri Ramana Neethal Vinnappam - Songs for Leaving (the desires)
« on: November 15, 2008, 11:43:03 AM »
Sri Ramana Neethal Vinnappam, of Muruganar, consists of 50
verses like Manikkavachakar's and is modelled on the same.  Even
the metre is followed in an identical manner!

Verse 1 reads like this:

Your shining rays of the Sun, not visible for those who have hearts
     of thievery and darkness,
Have entered my Heart, your light is ruling me,  and I am pining,
O Venkata with matted locks with floods of Ganga, please hold me,
You always remain in me with out getting sulky, this is my request!

Verse 2 reads like this:

I have no other requst excepting this, O Venkata,
Even after seeing the sublime love of Kannappa, you have taken my love,
You have made me shine, do not make the go dull at any time,
O the king of Tiruchuzhi, O Effulgence, who wears holy ashes,
   like silvery gold!
