Hymns of Thayumanavar
The earth and the rest of elements five,
The external organs * of action,
The sense organs, mouth, ear and the rest *,
The sense potencies * - sound and the rest -
The organs of knowledge, mind and the rest * -
The kalas and the rest of tattvas
Ending in the finite suddha tattva,
All the tattvas, ninety and six,
Thus recounted and more,
Were subsumed in the one Word
That was in silentness uttered,
As the Pure Void, as Rapture Immense
The Ocean of Bliss appeared.
How shall I describe it!
Thou! The Vision Ineffable
That abandoned not the beloved devotees,
Who melting in love,
Stood praying with folded hands,
Singing thy praise in melodious refrain
And standing constant in the path of love,
Ripe to receive thy special Grace.
Thou, the God of Compassion Fullness
That dances in rapture in the chit sabha
