Speaking of Siva (6)
« on: July 26, 2008, 01:42:28 PM »
Allamma Prabhu, (who has been mentioned by Bhagavan Ramana
Maharshi in His Talks as also in Day by Day) is more of wisdom,
than devotion, in his verses:

"If mountains shiver in the cold, with what they will wrap them?
If space goes naked, with what will they clothe it?
If the lord's men become worldlings, where will I find the metaphor?
O Lord of the Caves!"

" With a whole temple in this body,
Where is the need for another?
No one asked for two. O Lord of the Caves,
if you are stone, what am I?"

"I heard the dead rooster crow that the cat devoured,
I saw the black koil come and eat up the sun,
The casket burned and left only the sacred thread.
The Linga of Breath breaks all rules and grows unorthodox.
No one may trace the footstep on the water, the sound of the word,
Guhesvara* is neither here nor there!"

* Guhesvara - Guha + Easvara, Lord of the Caves.

"For a wedding of the dwarfs, rascals beat the drum,
And whores carry on their heads, holy pitchers;
With hey-ho's and lound hurrahs
They crowd the wedding party and quarrel over flowers and betelnuts,
All three worlds are at the party;
What a rumpus this is, without our Lord of Caves!"

Arunachala Siva.
