Arunachaleswarare vaarum(Tamil)

Arunachaleswarare  vaarum

Sathyamangalam  Venkatrama iyer

Translated  by

(One visitor who introduced himself as  SAthamangalam Venkatraman    is said to have  composed five songs called   Sri Ramana    sthuthi Panchakam(five songs on Ramana  )  when he was in  Virupakshi cave .This is the   first song of those five songs. Interestingly   it  is similar to a  suprabatham  to Ramana as well as God Shiva   as Arunachaleswara. I understand the five  prayers of this  Pancharathnam are sung on Saturdays   in the Ramanashram.  I was attracted by its simplicity and am translating because of it)
