Question: Tamilians/hindus ::may i be enlightened with the following siva vaakkiyar, a sidhdhar's peom?

Siva Vaakiyar, one of 18 Sidhars of India, has written poem, which goes like this? "NATTA KALLAI DEIVAMENDRU, NAALU PUTPAM SAATHIYE; SUTRI VANDHU MONEMONAVENDRU SOLLUM MANDHIRAM EADHADAA. NATTA KALLUM PESUMO?NATHAN ULLIRRUKAYIL; SUTTA SATTI SATTUVAM KARICHUVAYA ARIYUMO? Means : A planted stones, even you offer flowers to it alongwith Manta utchaadnaas, cannot speak ; but your innerself, where the Almighty resides can speak of Him volumes. The Stone is like a vessel and spoon, which at any time, does not know the taste of food cooked in/ with them? But you, yourself with your inner heart know about Him more, which you do not realize. As I am poor in my English and for my knowledge on our Philosophy, I may please be ignored for any mistakes. Inspiration for this Question : Jagedish, an unknown personality even to me for further details see the following web site ::- - http:/ /

where belonged to, nobody knows. Its is generally believed that he is given the name Sivavakkiyar based on the poems that he has left behind. Sivavakkiyar is classified in the category of Siddhars (or Shaivite ascetics) of South India. The period in which he lived is unknown. http:/ / I am asking one more question on Siva Vakkiyar. Please reply that one also. Courtesy : A friend (not in my Contacts) named Jagedish, who is at:: http:/ / my/ profile
