Hymns of Thayumanavar
While Thou art the Heavenly Being,
Why did Thou not take me and make me Thee?
How can I lie like inert matter?
Is this not the harassment
Of the twin karma of yore?
Thou, the Ambrosia that is exceeding sweet!
I, who figure Thee in my thought
Became redeemed indeed!
Oh! Thou, goodly King!
I seek to live in Thee,
Dying in me.
