veLi vittenaikaa Arunachala
Arunachala! I have revealed to the world how you took me over and by your grace enacted the many secret, discreet, dramas in my heart, please don’t hate me for this. Manifest your grace and bless me so I can merge with you (sayujyam - merge with the absolute) and protect me.
In this verse Bhagavan reveals how he has exposed the grace of Arunachala in other verses of akshara mana malai, such as: ‘dheivamendr unnai saarave ennai’, pithuvittunai naer pithanaakinai’, ’paeithanam vida vidaa paeyai’, ‘yaarum ariyadhen madhiyinai marutti’, ‘latchiyam vaith aruL asthiram’.
You destroyed my ego completely, blessed me with sayujyam (merging with the Absolute/Brahman), and are standing proudly as ‘achala’ (unmoving). While, I, on the other hand, unable to keep silent about the incredible acts of your grace, have told the world all about them. How different is your state and mine! Please ignore my act and protect me, prays Bhagavan.
