Sri Ramana Satguru

Refrain

Ramana Sat-Guru, Ramana Sat-Guru,

Ramana Sat-Guru, my Lord!

Ramana Sat-Guru, Ramana Sat-Guru,

Ramana Sat-Guru, my Lord!

Text

1. Gracious Lord who was born at the place

That the glorious gods of heaven delight to praise,

Famous Holy Tiruchuli,

Ramana Sat-Guru!

2. Born of the love of Alagu and Sundara1 was the sea of nectar,
The dweller at Arunachala. Out of love (for us), first the formless
One took shape as the bull-mounted Siva.

And again now as Ramana Sat-Guru!

3. Untainted Knowledge flowed as the Sea of Love
To the fine Virupaksha Cave on Aruna Hill
And took form as this Pure Being,

Ramana Sat-Guru!

4. He wrestled to the ground and trampled Illusion, his challenger.
He did away with the artful senses

And the profusion of past karma,

Ramana Sat-Guru!

Sri Ramana Satguru

Ramana Sat-Guru Ramana Sat-Guru

With his beautiful matted hair,

Men of merit seek him, serve him and fall at his feet,
