Hymns of Thayumanavar
If I am to be born again,
Grant this monster this boon:
''Let this body become imperishable,
The fire in muladhara rising
To the mystic moon sphere
And my mother, kundalini, bringing me up
As an infant in her bosom.''
If my destiny is not to be born again,
''Let me in this very existence
Be consigned to the Cosmic Mother
With incense flame of camphor glowing
And be redeemed.''
That indeed is better by far.
Is there any other alternative than these?
If there is, it is beyond this little one.
Thou, the Primal Source of jnana mukti!
Oh! Thou Sivam
That is Truth-Knowledge-Bliss!
The Cosmic Principle
That is Total-Fullness-Perfect!
