Hymns of Thayumanavar
Seated inmost within the heart of truthful ones
Whose tongue utters nothing but Truth,
Thou taught the Truth that is Truth of Truths.
This is the Truth.
There is doubt naught about it.
Yet, it is from within the heart of this false one
Who, nothing but falsehood utters,
Thou made appear flasehood of falsehoods
As perfect Truth.
If so, what shall I do?
Oh! Thou of Jnana Guru in Vishnu form!
Oh! Thou the fourheaded Brahma Guru
That chants Vedas from the lotus seat!
Oh! Thou the Guru that taught faiths all!
Oh! Guru that teaches in love to dear devotees
That seek refuge in Thee!
Thou, the God of Compassion Fullness
That dances in rapture in the chit sabha
