Thaarum thaarum maruLena thaazhndhida
Aarum korum varamadh aLippavan
KaaruLoori kasindhidu maariyaan
Vaarum = do come; magamuni (maha muni) = great sage; thaarum = (please) give; aruL = grace; aarum = all, everybody; korum = request, seek; varam = boon; maari = rain;
Ramana! Great sage of Arunachala! Please do come, do come! Please do give (bestow) your grace to those who seek it. Ramana gives all the boons the devotees ask for, his grace drenched everyone like refreshing rain from dark clouds.
This verse appeals to Bhagavan to come quickly and bestow what the devotees need, like rain clouds showering much needed rain on parched land. While there are many instances of material needs of devotees satisfied by praying to Bhagavan, it is said that god will take care of your needs once you surrender completely.
‘Vaendathakkadhu arivoi nee
Vaenda muzhudhum tharuvoi nee
Vaendum ayan maal ku ariyoi nee
Vaendi nee ennui paNi kondai
Vaendi nee yaadhu aruL seiydhai
Yaanum adhere vaendinan allal
Vaendum praise ondru undu enil
Adhuvum un than viriupaandrae
The saint says that, ‘Lord you know what I want, and you give all that I want, you are beyond the reach of Brhama and Vishnu, you took over me, you showered your grace on me, you tell me what I should pray for, I. will do that, if you say pray for something on your own, if there is something I can pray for, isn’t that also your intention (desire)?’
In Siva Puranam, he says, ‘avan aruLale avan thaï vanangi’ meaning by His grace worshipping his feet’.
Bhagavan himself reflects a similar sentiment in Day by Day:
On another occasion:
There is no need to remind God about his business which is to always keep an eye on our welfare.
Again, there is no need to let him know your needs. He knows them Himself and will look after them.
As for prayers being answered or desires being met by Bhagavan, he illustrates it clearly in a conversation with a once-atheist Narayana Iyer:
Narayana Iyer: Then, what is the fate of all of us who pray to you to have grace on us and save us? Will we not be benefited or saved by sitting in front of you or coming to you? What use is there then for family men like me to gain by coming here to you?’
Bhagavan: A jnani has no sankalpa but his sannidhi [presence] is the most powerful force. He need not have sankalpa but his presiding presence, the most powerful force, can do wonders, save souls, give peace of mind, even liberation to ripe souls. Your prayers are not answered by him but absorbed by his presence. His presence saves you, wards off the karma and gives you the boons as the case may be, involuntarily. The jnani does save the devotees, but not by sankalpa, which is non-existent in him, only through his presiding presence, sannidhi.’
