Tirumandiram - 1 : 48

Bowing down

Adiyar Paravum Amarar Piranai
Mudiyal Vanangi Mudalvanai Munnip
Padiyar Arulum Paramparan Endhai
Vidiya Vilakkendru Mevinindraane.

I bow down to the lord who is the search of the seekers. My father, the supreme consciousness who is a lamp that is never off, I adore. (Swahilya Shambhavi.)

Tirumandiram: 1:47

The spoon does not taste the soup!

Manaiyul Irundavar Madhavar Oppar
Ninaivul Irundavar Nesathul Nirpar
Panaiyul Irunda Parundadu Pola
Ninaiyadavarkillai Nin Inbam Thaane.

When they sit in the presence of the divine within, they equal the great sages of austerity. When they stay with the awareness of the presence, they express pure compassion through their being. Just as a kite that sits on a palm tree, does not enjoy the fruit, those who are not aware of the consciousness and remember it, do not experience that bliss, even though it is available at all times. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
