Verse 1253 of Guru Vachaka Kovai of Muruganar:


காமீயக் கோரிக்கை கழல் கடவுள் மய முனிவர்
தாம் இயல்பாய் ஆற்றும் தவம் அனைத்தும் - காமர்
சுபயோகம் தான் விளைத்துத் தொல் உலக மக்கட்கு
உபயோகம் ஆகும் உணர்.
 

Part III - tattva anubhava iyal - concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 1253 of Guru Vachaka Kovai of Muruganar:

The Sages want and pray for nothing.
But their very being is spontaneous
Penance serving to bring to all
The people of the world the wealth
And welfare that they may wish for.

End of Part III - The Experience - concluded.

Guru Vachaka Kovai  - completed.

(Tr. Prof. K. Swaminathan)

Arunachala Siva.

வாழ்த்து

வாழி அருணகிரி வாழி ரமண குரு

Verse 1254 of Guru Vachaka Kovai of Muruganar:

Invocation:

Long live Aruna Hill.  Long live
Guru Ramana. Long live
This garland of His sayings. May
This Lamp lit to reveal transcendent
Truth prove fruitful and spread far
And wide the Light Supreme.

A WORD ABOUT GURU VACHAKA KOVAI:

I was earlier reading David Godman's Guru Vachaka Kovai several times and this book contains apart from
prose meaning of verses along with connected incidents in Sri Bhagavan's life.  It also gives a list of Bhagavan's
Verse and other stray verses of Bhagavan included in Guru Vachaka Kovai.  Then I  read the original Tamizh verses
of Guru Vachaka Kovai and it delighted me more.  The work is the summum bonum of Sri Bhagavan's teachings
nicely versified by Muruganar. 

I thought of giving the Tamizh original verses (1254 + Bhagavan's verses) and also the translation in blank verse by
Prof. K. Swaminathan. 

At the rate of about 15 verses per day and their English translation, it took me about 80+ days to post them.  I am
overjoyed in Bhagavan's Grace who made this task possible.   
 
All glory to Sri Bhagavan.

All glory to His foremost devotee Sri Mugavaik KaNNa Muruganar.

Arunachala Siva.
