a request for subramanian sir
« on: June 01, 2010, 11:29:53 AM »
Subramanian sir,

Maybe it is too much to ask for, but i dont think there is anyone more suited to be asked for this than yourself. Sir, you have been continously writing explanations and translations of various works of bhagavan ramana and others. Your recent work on ulladu narpadu too was very useful for beginners like myself. Could you take up any of sh. muruganaar's works and elucidate for the forum devotee's benefit? sir, since your knowledge of various puranaas is immense, we could benefit from your explanations using examples from puranaas on the chosen work.

This is only and only if you are health wise and time wise not pressed. Only if your health and age allows.

Many Thanks,

Lakshmi

Dear SLakshmi,

I am not conversant with all of Muruganar's songs; you must
be wondering to know that Muruganar wrote 30,000 verses on
Bhagavan Ramana!  However I shall select a few verses and do
the translation in future.  In the meantime, I am quoting several
verses from Guru Vachaka Kovai and Padamalai which are of
Muruganar only.  These translations are of course, from David
Godman.  Sri Guru Ramana Prasadam, another piece of Muruganar,
has been rendered in English by Robert Butler. Earlier to David
Godman, Prof.K.Swaminathan had rendered some songs of
Sri Ramana Sanndihi Murai and Guru Vachaka Kovai.  All the
books are available in Sri Ramanasramam.  Unlike David Godman's
books, these have no commentaries.

I shall bear in mind, your request.

Arunachala Siva.
