Sri Ramana Tiru Venba - (2)
« on: November 28, 2008, 01:18:07 PM »
Tiru Venba (2) of Muruganar in Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai, is the
second composition with the same title, with 54 verses.  This is also
modelled on Tiru Venba of Manikkavachagar in Tiruvachakam.

Verse 4 reads as under:

I have left the family but I am not able to leave the poetry!
I am having only this tapas, with this concerted seeking,
Let me sing your feet for ever, and I shall with this tapas,
Attain the Peace within.

Verse 10 reads as under:

Like Kannappa's staunch devotion, please make me have,
Devotion to you, this is my request, O Venkata!
With such pure devotion, let me seek you, O Paramesvara Ramana,
I shall make no more request to you!
