He is not Hari, He is not Lord Siva


He is not Hari, He is not the Lord Siva.
He is the Ultimate Cause,
In the Beyond of the Beyond,
Transcending Blackness, Redness, and Whiteness,
Try to understand:
He is not big, He is not small.
He is Infinite Distance,
Transcending even
Supreme Quiessence.

- Sivavakkiyar
