My Life

My Life

by Karthick Sekar

I have lived my life without knowing You,
I have lived my life without knowing You.

In childhood, I have lived my life without knowing You.
When I was growing up, I thought that I wanted to know You.
Through songs, pictures and movies,
I thought that I wanted to know You.
When other people shared their experiences,
I had a wish to see You and get along with You.
To my eyes and heart,
I wished to see You and get along with You.
I don’t know why, but I couldn’t sense you.
I don’t know why, but I couldn’t sense you.
I forgot and threw You away from my thoughts like dust.
As Illusion took over my mind,
I forgot and threw You away from my thoughts like dust.
I have lived my life without knowing You,
I have suffered because of my fate and hated Your temple
I have suffered because of my fate and hated Your temple
I have lived my life without knowing You.
As a mother You laughed at me.
I couldn’t take the pain,
so I decided that I don’t want to know and get along with You.
I moved away and lived my life without knowing You.
As a zombie, I have lived my life without knowing You.
You hugged me to stop my suffering.
Although You hugged me to stop my suffering,
I refused You and lived without knowing You.
You didn’t want to entertain this stubborn child anymore.
Since You didn’t want to entertain this stubborn child anymore,
You sent Your son Lord Murugan as a Guru.
You sent Your son Lord Murugan into my life, even though, I was going around without knowing You.
I have lived without understanding even after seeing Your Son, and suffered without surrendering.
I have lived my life without knowing You.
Although You taught many lessons, I have lived without knowing You.
As the time passed, the lessons got tougher, and
I have bowed to Velan’s Feet to surrender.
I have bowed to Vettrivelan’s feet to surrender
I surrendered to Your lotus feet, Guhane.

When I surrendered to Your lotus feet, in that moment, all my suffering disappeared.
I surrendered to Your lotus feet.
The moment when I thought I saw You.
The moment when I thought I saw You,
You made me realise that it was not Your actual Self.
You made me realise that it was not Your actual Self,
and You made me happy. That is the good time of my life, by removing all my worries and guilt.
You guided me in the path of victory.
When I have the good company of You (Velane, vadivelane)
Only success pervades in my life always.

I now live with the awareness of knowing You,
by singing the glory of You from my heart.
With the awareness and conscious of knowing Your presence,

I live life understanding and being aware of HIS Lotus feet.
I live life understanding and being aware of HIS Lotus feet.
Praise the lord (Vettrivel Muruganukku Arogara!)
