Tirumandiram - 24

The way to his grace
Pottrisaithum Pugazhndum Punidannadi
Tetrumin Endrum Sivanadikke Selvam
Aatriyadendru Ayalutra Sindaiyai
Matrinindrar Vazhi Manninindraane.
May you ever sing the praise of the one consciousness. Glorify in song, the Divine feet of Shiva. Gather all your treasures - your capabilities - and pour it one-pointed at the altar of consciousness. To the one whose thought never wavers, Shiva ever abides, showering his Grace.
- Swahilya Shambhavi.

Tirumandiram - 23

He said "Stop," and it did

Vallavam Vannik Kiraiyidai Vaarana
Nillena Nirpitha Needhiyul Eesanai
Illena Venda Iraiyavar Thammudal
Allum Pagalum Arulugindrane.

Just as the fire that once threatened to consume the world was contained by just a word, "Stop," by the Lord, never doubt his presence. The one who showers his grace through day and night on all beings including the gods, is always there. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Tirumandiram - 22

The Lord is aware of our thoughts
Manathil Ezhugindra Maya Nan Nadan
Ninaitha dariva nenil than ninaikkilar
Enakkirai Anbilan Enbar Iraivan
Pizhaikkanin drar pakkam peni nindraane.

This Lord is the Source for our thoughts that create this world of illusion. Though we are not aware, the Lord knows our thoughts. There are those who complain that God does not love me. But those who seek his help to be saved from this wheel of transmigration of birth and deatyh, he is sure to be on their side. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
