Tirumandiram - 44

All praise and so do I

Potri Enbar Amaran Punidan Adi
Potri Enbar Asurar Punidan Adi
Potri Enbar Manidar Punidan Adi
Potri Enanbul Poliyavaithene.

The devas or the spiritual beings sing his glory. The asuras or the ones who live by matter alone, praise him too. The humans who are a combination of spirit and matter, sing his praise. I too praise him and make him shine through me by my love for him. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Tirumandiram - 43

Holding on to his feet

Aranadi Solli Arattri Azhudhu
Paranadi Nadiye Bhavippa Naalum
Uranadi Sidangu Odunga Vallarkku
Niranadi Seidu Niraindu Nindraane.

To those who mentally hold on to the feet of the Lord and cry out their sorrows, those who are constantly feeling the presence of the Lord in their heart, those who are serving with devotion, he fills them up with his grace unbounded. - Swahilya Shambhavi

Tirumandiram - 42

He walks into your life

Poyaran Thannaip Pugazhwar Peruvadhu
Nayaganan mudi seidaduve nalgu
Mayaganch Choozhndu Varavallaragilum
Veyana Tholikku Vendondum Thane

For the one who dives deep into his core which is the Lord himself, there is nothing that he cannot do. Contrarily, even if a person is capable of going around the world too, without his grace, nothing is ever possible. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Tirumandiram - 1 - 41

He sneaks in like a pet deer!

Sinanjeida Nanjunda Devar Piranai
Punanjeida Nenjidai Potravallarkkuk
Kanancheida Vanudal Paganum Ange
Inancheida Manpol Inangi Nindrare

Those who hold his name dear in their heart, comes the Lord who consumed the Halahala poison that emerged after the ocean was churned for nectar, with his consort - Devi Parvati. How does he come? He sneaks in like a pet deer returning meekly to its fold along with its mate. To win the grace of the Lord one needs to do nothing else but think of him with lots of love and devotion. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
