Unnai Maranthena Naan?

Ho Supreme Formless Brahman,
Why are you happy?
Is it because of your illusionary victory over Kama?
The illusion that you have burnt Kama to Ashes,
How can that be?
When he is happily residing within me!

Well said!
Beautiful picture, beautiful lines and great talent to pen it down...

I agree with you! Kama is something that resides in everyone but the serenity of the Devine Lord suppresses it and brings out the inner balance of life and its purpose.

Hi Arjuna:

I might be wrong but I thought its the other way around. Isn't Brahman residing in all of us and isn't it that Kama's victory over our Atman is illusionary?

"Chidananda rupam shivoham shivoham" right?

Enamo, periyavanga neenga sonna naanga ellam ketukaroom :)

Priya - ur right..The purpose of my poem was to invoke Lord Arunachala (from the Dvaitic perspective even though the first line is from the advaitic perspective :)) in an angry sense..I am trying to say to him that he has not succeeded in defeating Kama..That he has not done his job properly :)..

Thiruvanamalai is indeed a beautiful place. It is an unforgettable moment in my life. I was glad you came along coz u educated me with the history and mythology behind the place. Sometimes I wonder how u got to know so much!

so ur saying that lord has not suceeded in defeating kama. i think the whole story is abt us, the human beings to defeat kama, and attain perinbam, by defeating this sirrinbam.
