Sri Ramana Tiru Padai Atchi
« on: November 29, 2008, 01:52:01 PM »
Tiru Padai Atchi, in Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai of Muruganar, has got
10 verses, and is modelled on the composition in Tiruvachakam, with
the same title.

Verse 1 reads as under:

I shall not speak about the grace of gaze of your eyes!
I shall not suffer the attractive Maya's various forms,
I shall not consider the poison as nectar for the devotees,
I shall not be seize the measureless vanities of my mind,
I shall not much bother about the good character in me,
I shall not join the devotees with love in my mind,
You have killed the uttter darkness of the first Maya, that is ego,
You are the Effulgence, O Venkata, I have merged in you.

Verse 2 reads as under:

I shall not resist the various enjoyments in this world like
   Indra's heavens,
I shall not resist my desires for women's infatuation,
I shall not ignore the opium that is taken by devotees,
I shall not question my arrogance, which is full in me,
All happiness will swell in me and I shall not oppose,
I shall not worry about the wealth of Grace and Jnana,
This poor devotees' good merits have yielded fruit,
My God Ramanesan, came before me and merged in me!
