Hymns of Thayumanavar
Partaking of the nature
Of madmen, demons and children,
Taking turiya form,
Forgetful of time and space
And the like categories -
Thus are they, Thine devotees.
At their feet in devotion true
I worship in trust implicit.
For me, Thou produced an illusion
And said ''See the work of the cosmic maya
That makes this world move.''
Now, is there such a strange story
Even in Mahabharata *?
Is this of the nature of Pure Eternal Reality?
Thy story of cosmic maya
As the center of all things
Is not found even in the
Mayaic stories of Khadi *.
Why does my mind get so confused?
Is this the reward of those who
Place their trust in Thee?
Oh! Thou the Brahman that is unknowable!
The One that Purity Perfection!
The Spaces Vast where dawns
The Knowledge that is Bliss!
 The epic by Vyasa recounting the battle between the two royal houses
of Pandavas and Kauravas.
 These fabulous stories of visions of maya to which Khadi,
a Brahmin who sought of Vishnu to reveal the nature of maya,
are told in the famous allegorical work on Vedanta known as Nana Vasishtam.
