Prayer of the Day
Prayer from Thiruvarutpayan (திருவருட்பயன்)
பொய் இருண்ட சிந்தைப் பொறியிலார் போதமாம்
மெய் இரண்டும் காணார் மிக. 44
Song as Romanized text
poy iruNDa sin-thaip poRiyilAr pOthamAm
mey iraNDum kANAr mika. 44
Meaning of the Prayer Song:
The stupid, who have the mind covered up with illusion,
do not get to see the Truth as well as the form of knowledge.
1. The Grace takes the form for uplifting the soul,
which is incapable of realizing the Truth on its own.
Even then, it is only a few who catch up with that form of
Grace and pursue the Truth.
Many just bewilder in the darkness, even when Grace is all around them.
What is called for is eagerness and preparedness to interact with the Grace.
c.f. Uttishthata jagrata prapyavarannibodhata
Kshurasyadhara nishita duratyaya durgam pathastat kavayo vadanti - Kathopanishad
