Apartment Kolam

Apartment kolam with dots


      Sri Sabapathy ,elder brother of Ramalingam was an expert in delivering religious discourses about 63  Saiva Saints(followers of Lord Shiva & whom  had personally seen Shiva & experienced His bliss).Their biography was written in poetic form called" Peria Puranam"bySri.Sekkizhar,   a learned gentleman & a minister of Chola kingdom.One rich business man by name Mr.Somu chettiar had arranged the discourse by Mr.Sabapathy.The discourse was arranged in the night hours so that much people  could listen to it after finishing their work.Mr.Sabapathy took with him Ramalingam to read some history pages in between his discourse.Then he was around nine years only.                              There was very good response & audience  to hear the discourse daily.One day Mr.Sabapathy suddenly became sick &could not go to the discourse.He was  so much worried as lot of people would be waiting there to hear  his discourse.So he asked Ramalingam  to convey this.Ramalingam  went & informed the organizer  Somu chettiar.But the disappointed audience asked Ramalingam to recite few poems about Saint Thirugnanasambandhar.Ramalingam agreed to this reluctantly& started reciting  the first  poem"ulagelam" in Peria  Puranam ." உலகெலாம் உணர்ந்தோதற்கரியவன்"- பெரிய புராணம்"- திரு.சேக்கிழார் .                                            Then Ramalingam started interpreting  the meaning of the poem elaborately that the audience &organizer Somu chettiar remained  spell bound till he finished the discourse.They were wondering how a nine year boy could explain these most philosophical things & were also moved very much by expression of his devotion to God.Those who had assembled there had the rare feeling of realizing God in themselves & began to visualize god in every thing of His creation.So Somu chettiar & the audience wanted Ramalingam to  continue the discourse daily.Somu chettiar met Mr.Sabapathy & informed him to send Ramalingam regularly.Mr.Sabapathy was surprised to hear this,however agreed to send Ramalingam.After he recovered from illness,he secretly went to the place of discourse &watched Ramalingam's speech.He was also wondering where Ramalingam had learnt all this things,his mastery over  Tamil language at this  very young age.He was in tears & thanked God silently.Thereafter he was very much proud of his brother & told also his  wife what he had seen,how the audience became spell bound.Let us meet again  & share what happened in  Ramalingam's life.
