Hymns of Thayumanavar
Pervasive Cosmic Form (15/33)
Secret of the Intelligence of the Infinite Space
As the hauteur that is ''I''
Affects and harasses you,
The maya that pertains to the world
Takes diverse forms and pursues you,
As flesh, body, organs external and internal,
As sky, wind, fire, water and earth,
As mountain and forest,
Thus is the ocean of sorrow
That grows out of this -
Who can describe indeed?
