"That thou art"..Tat Tvam Asi...

For fearsome, He is terror manifested

And for seekers of Love, He is a passionate partner

A father to a son, son for a bereaved soul

He is oldest of my grand old sire,

Yet manifest in my child in the womb

He is dual for those who think he is

He is one and only one pervading every single thing.

I am him, for those who believe in that

He is that, ever present, omniscient and all powerful.

He is the ying the yang, satan and the god

He is what the mind can conceive, and null for those who deny.

He is the one whom you want to see in the mirror

your self or the one behind you or beside you..

He is my God, with mace, a disc, a conch and a flower.

He is my friend, my father , my mother and my lover..

( Inspired by a banner showing god wrestling satan in my son's school day celebrations..And remembered the verses by Kulashekara azhwar..

தேவரையும் அசுரரையும் திசைகளையும் படைத்தவனே!
யாவரும் வந்தடிவணங்க அரங்கநகர் த்துயின்றவனே !
காவிரி நல் நதிபாயும் கணபுரத்தென் கருமணியே!
ஏவரி வெஞ் சிலைவலவா !இராகவனே  தாலேலோ

Gods, demons and even directions
are nothing but his graceful creation
they all come , landing into his residing
To Srirangam, where my lord is resting
In kannapuram , also he stays
the same cauvery flows here with ease.
Deft with his  mighty fearful bow,
Raghava, lullaby unto you now.)
