Marvelous Art Arrives From India

We offer today some wonderful art that was sent to Palaniswami from India, along with creation verses from the holy Tirumantiram. It is a series of depictions of Siva from the ancient scriptures.

The artist, Mr. Sinha, does work for our publications now and then.

2649: Gurus Have Reached Siva’s Feet

Smoke and sound
Oblations and sacrificial offering
In worship spread;
“All these are for my Lord;”
The Gurus who thus meditate,
Who have monasteries founded,
Have verily reached Feet of Lord.

2650: The Lord is in the Body

No habitation the Lord has
But the body-house of Jiva;
Or has the Lord any other home?
Let them find out;
Even after having found out
That Jiva’s body is Siva’s home
They say, “He, our Siva, is outside.”

2994: He Hides in the Heart

The Bounteous Lord,
The Monarch of Heavenly Kingdom
The Lord of matted locks,
That carried Ganga waters flowing,
The Primal One of Vedas,
Lest them devoid of faith see Him,
He hides in the heart within.

3006: Lord Siva Seeks Those Who Seek Him

Great is He, rising above macrocosm vast,
Subtle is He, within the fleshly body to births an heir,
As His devotees see the vision of His Holy Feet,
And walk toward Him,
He goes seeking them,
On their way.

2653: Lord is in the Guru’s Monastery

The Guru-face is our Lord’s pedestal
The monastery is our Lord’s Holy Land;
The Holy Assembly of blemishless vision
Is Lord’s abode;
The heart that performs the sixteen worships inside
Is the Lord’s sacred throne;

3008: He Protects All

Through successive aeons several,
He stood as Paraparan Supreme;
All worlds He stood protecting
And this world too, as Paraparan Supreme;
This they know not;
He stood pervading the Jivas, too,
Immanent in them and transcending them.

3021: Lord is Benevolent Like Rain

Here He is, there He is, everywhere He is,
In all worlds He is, the Holy Lord;
In darkness He is, Light He is;
In sun He is, in moon He is, everywhere He is;
Benevolent is Lord,
Unto the rain that falls.

3023: Siva’s Supreme Might

By His Might He supports worlds seven,
By His Might He is sublter than atom,
By His Might He surpasses
The eight mountain ranges in directions eight,
By His Might, oceans roar.

3034: Lord Siva Pervades All Worlds Alike

He is of the rich matted locks,
He is of hue golden,
Unattached He is,
Yet immanent in all He is,
He is omnipresent, birthless, the Holy God,
Unintermittent He stands,

3045: Our Dear Siva is Deathless

Water, earth, sky, fire and wind,
The spark of light within the body, -All these He is;
He is Paraparam, He is Siva, Our Lord,
He is the walking Jiva here below,
Deathless He is,
In all worlds seven.
