Hymns of Thayumanavar
Adoration to the God-Guru who is Knowledge-Bliss (9/11)
Thou granted me Grace beyond grace.
Thou showed me loving compassion
As of a mother.
Thou planted Thine Feet on my head.
Who, knowing not that
The samadhi devoid of consciousness
Is the permanent state exalted;
Chanted not the mantras sacred;
Realized not that the states of mukti are triple;
Knew not that It is Light, Void, Form and Nada sound.
To vision, thus, seeing and not seeing,
Alone will lead to the Finite Grace
That has neither cause nor effect -
Thus Thou taught me!
Grant me Thine Grace
To be like Thine devotees
On whom Grace had descended of itself.
Oh! Thou, the Primal Source of Siddhanta Mukti!
Oh! Chinmayananda Guru! Oh! Dakshinamurti
That is seated high on the hilltop of Sivagiri!
