Laabamen utranai Arunachala
Arunachala, you are a great gain for those who come to you as refuge. What did you gain by accepting me (who has no value here or hereafter = iga param, where ‘Iga’ is this world and ‘param’ is celestial world)? What did you gain by (possessing) me?
Arunachala, what did you gain by accepting me, a simple idler who is spending time doing noting due to past karmas (prarabdha)? asks Bhagavan. Since Arunachala is the ‘gain’ whether in this world or next, as He shines as the heart of all jivas, Bhagavan says ‘laabam nee’ meaning ‘gain is you’. (Laabam means gain, profit, advantage etc)
Since you are the whole form (Purana sorupan), you don’t gain anything as that which is whole does not gain when something else is added, so you did not get anything for accepting me, says Bhagavan.
