Veda Gyanam

We're open for new collaborations.
News to be updated weekly.


This is the actual text and I have given you a word by word meaning of how beautiful the poem is by Ramalinga Adigal. Even though the Thiruvarutpa is supposed to be a bhakti ode, yet there is advaitam hidden which most people do not see. I have tried to bring out the aspects which we also see in the word Consciousness or Ishwara.We see the richness and how even in the bhakti there is a view of the advaitam aspect is only known if we do shravanam and mananam which means continuous reading, listening and dwelling upon the meaning.

Hope you all enjoy this beautiful text and its meaning.
