Tirumandiram - 33

They wither within who know not the truth

Padi palavaidhu Pandiv Vulagam
Vidhipala Seidondru Meimmai Unarar
Thudhi Pala Thothiranj Chollavallarum
Mathiyilar nenjinul vadukindrare

The people of the world worship many gods. They observe many rituals, but they know not the one truth called consciousness that is behind it all. They suffer in their heart without the right knowledge. Swahilya Shambhavi.

Tirumandiram - 32

The Lord is beyond everything
Devar Piran Tham Pranthisai Pathaiyum
Mevu piranviri Neerulgezhaiyum
Thavu Piranthamai Thanari Varillai
Paavu Piran Arut Paadalumaame

He is the Lord of all the gods and is present in all the directions. He is beyond the seven worlds represented between the chakras from Muladhara to Sahasrara and the oceans. May we sing verses in praise of his true nature, which we cannot comprehend with our mind. - Swahilya Shambhavi

Tirumandiram - 31

By beloved within and everywhere

Mannagathan Okkum Vanagathan Okkum
Vinnagathan Okkum Vedagathan Okkum
Pannagath Thinnisai Padalutranukke
Kannagathe Nindu Kadalithene

Hail to him who resides on earth, in the sky, in empty space and in the Vedas. He is the melodious music of a song, the one of whom many sing words of praise. I pour out my praise with all my being in love. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Tirumandiram - 30

Why I call for Shiva?

Vaanindrazhaikkum Mazhai Pol Iraivanum
Thanindrazhaikkunkol Endru Thayanguvar
Aanindrazhaikkum Adupol Nandiyai
Naanindrazhaippadhu Gnanam Karudiye.

Just as the rains pour down from the sky, drawn by the earth, people hesitate if the self will draw them into itself. Just as the calf cries out to its mother cow for milk, I call upon Nandi - Shiva, so that I may be filled with his superconscious wisdom. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
