Hymns of Thayumanavar
I realized that all life is an illusion.
But having realized it
I did not look beyond for a way out,
But remained here depressed.
What is this delusion
If this way is now blocked,
The way further beyond will also be blocked.
Is this fate?
Or your play?
Or this poor soul's fault?
No more can I in vain distress suffer.
Oh! Thou, who createth, preserveth and destroyeth all!
