Hymns of Thayumanavar
Prayer to the Being - Let us Contemplate (12/12)
As (all that is denoted by) the alphabet entire beginning with "A" *,
And different from them too,
As (all that has form) the universe vast;
As all that bears description any
And (all that which) does not bear too;
As Param (the Pervasive);
And as beyond speech;
As Nana pure, untouched by doubts and changes;
As the peerless Pasu-Pati -
That Substance we seek.
And sighing deep in love exceeding
 Reference is to nama and rupa - word and form by which all things known are categorized.
