Hymns of Thayumanavar
Thayumanavar of Sivagiri Hills - Body Incarnated (1/2)
Is it not true that I gave Thee
This body I incarnated,
My wealth and my life - all the three,
Without keeping anything for myself,
The day Thou gave me the path of Mauna?
Yet, why then Thou sent me the maya
That made me dance in egoity
And blabber in ignorance?.
Why then Thou came to wipe my tears
And remove my sorrows?
Why Then Thou stopped
The flood of my desires?
Oh speak, pray speak
Thou, the Compassionate Being,
Thayumananava of Sivagiri Hills!
