Hymns of Thayumanavar
Oh! Lord Arunagiri *, Father!
Who is it there that spoke
The One True Word like Thee?
The men in the world here below
Despaired that it is impossible to speak it.
The peerless God of triple eyes - my Father -
But gestured his hand in directions four *.
 Arunagirinathar, the sinner turned saint from Tiruvannamalai,
who composed Tiruppugal in honor of Murugan.
 Dakshinamurti gesturing the Cinmudra to the four saints -
Sanaka, Sanadhana, Sanandhaya, Sanarkumara -
in silentness under the wild banyan tree in Kailas.
