Tayumanavar Songs
« on: November 24, 2008, 03:45:04 PM »
We shall see the songs of Tayumanava in a few posts:
This is from a composition titled :  "There is a desire"

Verse 11 reads as under:

With sparkling studs on the ears, and with nose that looks fllowers,
And with eyes like spears and blue lilies, when shall I leave their delusion?
He is the consort of the daughter of the Himalayas, the only Godhead,
He is my refuge, he is prayed to by Rama at the Sethu bridge.

Verse 12 reads as under:

He is in atom, he is in cosmos, he is the life in the all lives, but
Who has seen him, who has heard him?  How can I see the one,
Who has not been seen by Vishnu with tulsi garlands and his son,
He is in the lotus of the heart, he is in Chidambaram, he is dancing
   in silence, let us seek him.
