Sivavakkiyar : The Slothful

For some background on the revered Tamil poet and mystic Sivavakkiyar, see this post.

The slothful
     say: He is far, far, far
But the Supreme It
is spread everywhere
on Earth and in Heavens.
O you poor dumb ones,
stunned and suffering
through towns and fields and forests
in Search!
He is right there
within you!
Stand still
and feel Him,

Translation Kamil V. Zvelebil
