« on: November 25, 2008, 02:39:48 PM »
Sri Ramana Adhbuda Pathu, Decad of Miracle, of Muruganar, consists, actually of eleven verses and is modelled on Adhbuda Pathu of
Saint-Poet Manikkavachagar.

Verse 1 reads as under:

I am not doing 'archana' for him, with freshly plucked flowers,
   that have not even by tasted by honeybees, I am not prostrating.
I never contemplate on his red lotus feet, I am not chanting his
Siva, Sivaya Nama, O Venkata deva, you came on your own,
In the Space of gold, ruled me and graced me, What a miracle! 

Verse 2 reads as under:-

I am not telling his name, with sound of drums, I am not
     knowing his mind and acting, Para Siva Venkata!
You placed your red lotus feet on my head, and graced me with
   your effulgence,
You are the First of the city of Sonai, where drums sound everyday,
I look at your face!  You came as a King and ruled me and graced me,
   What a miracle!
