Tirumandiram - 37

Become that which I praise

Naanum Nindrethuvan Nadorum Nandiyai
Thanumnidran Thazhal Thanokku Meniyan
Vanil Nindrarmathi Pol Uldal Ulluvand
Thoonil nindraange uyirkkindra vare


I praise Nandi - Lord Shiva daily, he that stands fiery and tall like the shining moon in the darkness of the night. He enters into me and enlivens me.
Yad Bhavam Tad Bhavati. When one focusses his mind on the Lord with heart-rending devotion, the mind takes that form of the Lord himself.
Any object we meditate upon, it is not possible to wholly become that object as it is bound by name and form. But while meditating on the qualities of God it is possible to wholly become that as all the conditionings of name and form are dissolved there. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
