Athma bodha keerthanam (Tamil)
(song about realization of soul)
1.AAdhiyile adwitheeyanaanathoru chithirunthu,
Vadhamulla vadhikalkku vadamatha chithirunthu
In the beginning there was divine God who was no two,
To the arguing arguers , it is a God without argument.
(I have translated Chithirunthu as God –Possibly the author meant Sidhi irunthu-Sidhi was there)
2.jnamulla jnaikalkku jnam atha chithirunthu,
Karmamulla karmikalkku karmam atha chithirunthu.
To those wise men with wisdom, it is a god without wisdom,
To those workers who has work, it is a God without work.
3,Mohamulla mohikalkku , mohamaththa chithirunthu
Dehamulla dehikalkku dehamatha chithirunthu
To those passionate men who has passion , the God without passion,
To those men with body who has a body , the God without body.
4,Kariyamum karanamum yekaya chithirunthu,
Kalaparam vyomaparam brahma param chithirunthu.
The God in whom the cause and action are united,
The god who is after time , after sky and after Brahmam.
5.Sathu chithu aanandamenna chathirangal othi nindhu,
Adveethiya chithil nindru moola sakthi than unarnthu.
The sastras were telling Sath, Chith , ananda,
And the moola Sakthi woke up from the divinity of Advaitha.
6.Mukkunamaam prakruthi rendu sakthikalai pirinjirinthu,
Vikshepa aavaranangal yende uthamanmaar chollidinthu.
The prakruthi which is sath, chith and Ananda has transformed in to two powers,
Projecting up and its covering up say the great people.
7.Vikshepa sakthiyile thathuvangal vandhu unanthu,
Thathuvangal irupathi naalum appo vanthezhunthu.
The philosophy of the power of projecting up, once realized,
Then you will know the twenty four principles.
8.Chithu maracha aavarana sakthiyippol maranchirunthu,
Budhi , chitha maadhi yantha karanangalum vandhu unarnthu.
The Power of Avarana which hides divinity, is hiding ,
Wisdom and mind and all sort of senses from beginning to end.
9.Rajjuvile pannagam poal, midhyayenno chathirangal,
Sookthiyile rajatham poal viswamenno chathirangal?
Like the rope and the serpent, are sastras only imagination,
Or like the silver of the good sayings , are Sastras the world?
10.Darppanathil prathi mukham poal viswaenno chathirangal,
Abhra varnnamenna poale viswamenno chathirangal?
Just like our image in the mirror, are Sastras the world,
Just like the colour of Mica , are SAstras , the world?
11.Vasudeva, vasudeva, vasudeva, vasudeva,
Vama puradheesa Jagannatha vibho Vasudeva
Oh Vasudeva, Oh Vasudeva, Oh Vasudeva, Oh Vasudeva,
Oh lord of Vama pura, Oh Jagannatha, Oh Lord Vasudeva.
