"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.
