Hymns of Thayumanavar
Thou created as Thou wished.
Thy Father * preserved it as by law.
The three eyed God * destroyed it for all to see.
These being the facts,
The world doth not know
Who the God ultimate is.
And so, will Thou, Thyself tell us
That our doubts and fears may at rest be set?
 Vishnu, the God of Preservation.
 Rudra, the God of Dissolution.
