Even the gods can't measure

Mannalandan Malaron Mudal Devargal
Ennalandinna Ninaikkilar Eesanai
Vinnalandan Thannai Mel Alandarillai
Kannalandengum Kadandu Nindrane
There is a story of how Vishnu tried to search the feet of Shiva and Brahma - his head. The concept behind this story is that consciousness is all-pervading and so unconceivably big that it is much beyond the grasp of even the divine beings. This consciousness however measures the space that it contains. But none have ever fathomed this consciousness. It sheds its grace upon everything and stands transcending everything. - Swahilya Shambhavi (swahilya.soulmate@gmail.com)

Shiva loves

Always exists for us

Kannudalan Oru Kadalin Nirkavum
Ennili Devar Irandar Enappalar
Mannuru Vargalum Vaanuruvargalum
Annal Ivanyen drariyagilargale

Shiva with his third-eye of insight ever abides with his love for his devotees. Both human beings and the gods, wait upon and pray to the many gods who are fleeting. They do not know consciousness, the supreme being, that always exists and resids in both the humans and the gods.
