Tiru Thellenam
« on: November 17, 2008, 11:39:55 AM »
Tiru Thellenam, Kummi Song, is a composition of 20 verses, by
Manikkavachagar in Tiruvachakam.  Poet Muruganar has also
composed Tiru Thellenam, modelled on this, about Bhagavan Ramana,
in Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai.

Verse 6 reads like this:

He dances with serpents on his waist,
He came to this world with his consort Uma, who is the daughter
   of the mountains Himalayas, and took hold of me,
Let us sing nice words with our shining hearts, and tears
   flowing from the eyes,
Let us play kummi and sing!

Verse 7 reads like this:

He is beyond the grasp of Hari, Brahma, Indra and devas,
But he came, called me, 'come, come!' and took hold of me on his own!
He kept his flowery feet on my head and ruled me,
Let us sing this god of gods and play kummi!
