Hymns of Thayumanavar
The Maya into which the elements subside
Is the origin of all, so some say. *
The Substance into which the sense organs merge
Is the reality, so some say. *
Where the cognitive organs, the karanas end,
Is the finite reality, so some say. *
Where the gunas find their home
Is the Reality ultimate, so some say *.
Nadam it is, some say *
Bindu it is, others say *.
The Self it is, yet others say *.
Formed it is, some say. *
Formless it is, if you search deeper, so some say *.
The state where jiva merges losing identity in full
Is the reality, so some say *.
Divine Grace is the finite reality, so some say *.
The Void that neither beginning nor end has
Is the reality final so some say *.
And thus and thus yet other things they say.
By all these, except that my mind sore troubled,
Reaches a mercurial state.
Will I ever attain
The bliss of Transcendental Samadhi?
Oh! Thou who filleth all visible space
In unbroken continuity!
Thou, the Bliss that is Perfect Full!
