441: Life and Death are Acts of God
He is the Wind that Blows in Directions Eight
He is the wavy ocean that girdles the earth,
He is fire, earth and sky;
He is the One that binds and unbinds
The body that holds life precious.
442: Lord is the Substance and Architect
Who seeks the luminous Nada atop
And of its sweetness savour
Know of death–no more;
The Lord is the seed of all
Of Sun, Moon and Fire
Of the Universe Vast
That Architect that builds all as well.
443: Potter Fashions as His Fancy Takes
The potter mounts the clay on the wheel
The potter fashions as he conceives
Even as the Potter our Lord Nandi is;
He sways the world, this way and that
The way His Fancy takes.
444: He Dwells in My Thoughts
He is Lord Supreme;
He has bull for His mount;
Mighty demons for army;
Boundless is His munificience
He gifts the world for us;
His goodness alone is goodness;
He is of matted locks;
He dwells in my thoughts.
445: In Love, He Created
In fondness for us He created the seven worlds,
In fondness for us He created the several aeons
In fondness for us He created the five elements;
In fondness for us He created this body and breath.
446: God Created All, Himself the Param Uncreated
Of yore He created worlds seven
Of yore He created celetials countless
Of yore He created species numberless
He who of yore created all
Himself stood as Primal Param uncreated.
447: He Who Created, Sustained As Well
The Primal One created the elements five;
The Primal One created the endless aeons past;
The Primal One created the countless heavenly beings,
The Primal One created and sustained as well.
448: The Pervasive Siva is Here as Well
The infinite spaces of the Seven worlds
He filled in oneness, expanding limitless
Yet is He not easy of reach;
Siva Himself into myriad Jivas pervaded
In this worlds as well, He our Lord.
449: He is the Object of All Knowledge
He is the light within
He is the body without
The precious object, beloved of immortals above,
The Holy Form, adored of saintly beings below,
He is the pupil of your eyes;
He the Object of all Knowledge.
450: The Lord Pervades All in Partiality to None
His is the Cosmic Form that none know
He is the infinite space that fills the universe;
He is the space in the tiny pot too;
Inseparable as water in milk
He pervades all in union close;
Impartial indeed His Goodness;
Unwearied His bliss–I knew.
