Hymns of Thayumanavar
''Mother! Mother'' I cry sometimes.
''Father! Father!'' -
Thus for Thy very Being I scream aloud.
Or, I wail like a ghost
In sound devoid of meaning.
Or, knowing not what I say,
I speak one thing and another
Or, ''Thou art the indescribable Light,
The Expanse Vast,
The Source of nada and the rest,
The Peerless atom
The Time that has tenses three''md
Thus too I speak
As these and not these,
As the Eternal, Truth, Bliss.
How lofty Thine play of compassion?
Is it easy for us to describe it?
Oh! Thou the Pervasive Being
That is Life of life
Of this world and next!
