Hymns of Thayumanavar
The Vedas, the Agamas, the Epics
And all the rest of scriptures
Expound in elaboration
The path of Advaita-Dvaita.
The inexplicable Dvaita knowledge
Is the knowledge that
Leads to Advaita knowledge.
This acceptable, indeed, to inference,
Experience and Revelation,
This is the accord of both the schools.
And so, enough for me
Is chariya, kriya and the rest.
What I conceive I am,
I become that.
And so, if I conceive Thee as ''I''
I will reach the path of Advaita.
My Father, whatever I conceive Thou as,
Thou as that appear
And confer Thine Grace.
Is there any lapse in that?
Oh! Thou the Pervasive Being
That is Life of life
Of this world and next!
