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.


In the four eternal Vedas,
In the study and reading of scripts,
In sacred ashes and in holy writs
And muttering of prayers
You will not find the Lord!
Melt with the heart inside
And proclaim the Truth.
Then you will join the light
Life without servitude.
He is not Hari, He is not the Lord Siva.
He is the Ultimate Cause,
In the Beyond of Beyond,
Transcending Blackness, Redness, and Whiteness.
Immovable.
Try not to understand:
He is not big, He is not small.
He is Infinite Distance,
Immovable,
Transcending even
Supreme Quiescence.
