    Gangai aninthava
    Kandor tholum vilasa
    Sathanggai aadum pathavinotha
    Lingeswara nin thaal thunai nee thaa
    -Thillai ambala nadarajah
    Selumai naathane paramesa
    Allal thithandava, vaa vaa amil thanava
    Yengum inbam vilangaveh
    Arul umapathe
    Yelimei agala varem thaa vaa vaa
    Valem pongevaa
    Palavithe naadum kalaiyedum
    Panivuden unaiye thuthi paadum
    Kalai alangara pandiya rani nesa
    Malaiyin vaasa, mangga mathiyanava.|

    The uninitiated might ask: "What is it like to be in the clear white light?" The young aspirant may reply, "It is as simple as sitting in a darkened room, closing the eyes in deep concentration and finding the entire inside of the cranium turning into light."
