Hymns of Thayumanavar
What availeth it
If thou bundle and preserve
The palm leaf scroll that hath lost
Its binding hole and tie?
So, too, is this body.
Well may they stand as consciousness pure,
They, the holy ones,
Rather than return to this world below.
But even if they do,
Unto the Uncreated Being will they be
Witnessing all, uninvolved.
