TIRUKKURAL IN PRAISE OF GOD 1.4
vendudal vendamai ilanadi cerndarkku
yandum idumbai ila
who’ve joined the feet of who’s sans like, dislike;
them will distress at no time strike
Core Idea: Here the divine principle is referred to as that which has neither wish no hate. The dualities of live and hatred, up and down, good andbad, and the like are relevant only in the context of the finite. Since the Cosmic Principle is infinite, it is described as having transcended these. Again, joining the feet of God is a poetic way of saying: merging with the divine in all humility. Spiritual enlightement involves transcending desires and aversions by severing all attachment.
vendudal – to desire
vendamai – not desiring
ilan – one without
adi – the feet
cerndarkku – to those who have been united (to)
yandum – for ages
idumbai – suffering
ila - no
