The Sage Thayumanavar
Web Publication by Mountain Man Graphics, Australia
- Yogaswami, Sri Lankar
I also have an unused work on disc of equally profound thought. It is the 1400 of Saint Thayumanivar, a famed Tamil poet and mystic whose works are FULLY MEMORIZED still today in Madras! I have seen people recite the whole thing (some of the “verses” are a full page. Anyway, we have never placed this on the Web simply because of time. If you are willing to run it through the html process, I could place it along with some simple graphics on our FTP site.
It is a classic, worthy of your page and of people’s access.
It occurs to me that it may be a feather in your cap to let visitors know that this translation, made over many years in India, has not been published anywhere yet, though major plans are underway and Thayumanivar has just had two literary analyses released by Motilal and others. Yours is the VERY FIRST PLACE ON THE PLANET where this masterpiece can be seen and enjoyed.

As for the foundational acknowledgement which Thayumanavar would ascribe to the appearance of these works, one might determine this in its reading and contemplation. May the Spirit of Life burn bright in its students.
