He has ever been existing with no parallel. He is older than Brahma - Vishnu -Shiva - Creator - preserver - destroyer. All the three are but three different forms and tasks of the mind. The consciousness exists untouched by it and through it. He is the leader who does not have any parallel Referring to consciousness as he, she or it is just a habit of the mind and poverty of words - a part trying to explain the total, words trying to describe the paper in which it is written.

If you call him your father, he is a father to you. He shines and guides from within you, like a light that gleams like gold. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Without him

Nothing moves

Avanai Ozhiya Amararum Illai
Avanandrich Cheyyum Arundhavam Illai
Avanandri Moovaral Aavathondrillai
Avananadri Oorpugu Marariyene
Consciousness is everything. Without Him (Consciousness) there are no divine beings. It is the essence in all divinity. Tapas is penance. It happens when we workout on a treadmill when the extra heat generated and expelled as sweat through the pores of our skin. Tapas of the mind is when through contemplation, we work out all the wasteful thoughts that cloud. No Tapasya is beyond consciousness which shines through at the end of such a penance when the impurities are washed away. Consciousness is the basis for the actions of the trinity - Brahma or creation, Vishnu - preservation and Sankara - dissolution.
Without attuning to this consciousness, I know no other way of liberating the mind which is constantly torn by the dualities and polarities of material existence, says Tirumoolar.

Shiva the Supreme Consciousness
Sivanodokkum Deivam Thedinum Illai
Avanodoppar Ingu Yaavarum Illai
Bhuvanang Kadandhandru Ponnoli Minnund
Davanach Chadai Mudi Tamarai Yane
There is no deity that can match Shiva. There is no person who is comparable to him. He is beyond the world, shining in a golden splendour, this lotus like person with fiery and shining matted locks.
Tirumandiram is a subtle text on Yoga. The Shiva referred here is the Supreme Consciousness, a name known to Tirumoolar. The Shiva referred here is the Christ of the Christians, the Alla of the Muslims and the truth of the scientists. That consciousness is non-pareil. There is no deity or divine being to match its greatness. There is no human being who can be compared to him. In the beginning, before the Universe began, he existed as pure awareness, beyond the world, containing it and shining with a golden glow.
The ebullience of energy is expressed through his shiny matted locks which are the entanglings of the material world. A lotus has humble beginnings rooted in slush. It transcends the water to express as a glorious flower. Shiva or consciousness is the ultimate flowering of the Universe and its creations. The final destination and source of all beings. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

I praise

Delighted with light

Agalidathar Meyyai Andathu Vithai
Pugalidathendranai Bodhavitthanaip
Pagalidathum Iravum Panindethi
Igalidath theirul neengi Nindrene.

I praise night and day the truth that expands beyond space, the seed

of the planets, stars and moons of the Universe, the Truth directed me to search and find itself his sole refuge. By praising the truth and being with it always, I stand in the present moment shining bright as the union of my understanding with the supreme truth has dispelled all darkness. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
