MIND SO BLESSED

 

 

My eyes, ears and mouth

must have committed

grievous sins

since they are not able

always to feast on

your divine form,

listen to

your nectarine words

and converse with you

earnestly.

 

My mind, however,

has been blessed

munificently

in that it holds you

all the time

in unremitting

reverence!

 

 

[Tamil poem by Mayuram Vedanayagam Pillai (1827 1889) addressed in an epistle to Subramania Desikar, Pontiff of the Tiruvavaduturai Adheenam. Poem in Tamil rendered into English by Sage TGN]
