Him Who Illumines

I have seen Him in His divine form,

Him with the matted locks,

Him with the jewelled crown,

Him with the gleaming teeth,

Him with the smiling face,

Him who illumines the fourteen worlds with
the light of His eyes.

I have Him and the thirst of my eyes is
quenched.

I have seen the great Lord whom the men
among men serve but as wives.

I have seen the Supreme Guru Chenna Mallikarjuna
sporting with the Primeval Sakti,
And saved am I.
