[h=1]Poonthanam's Maya Varnana(Tamil)[/h]Maya Varnanam(tamil)
(Description of illusion)

By
Poonthanam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Poonthanam was possibly one of the greatest forerunners of Bhakthi cult in Kerala and his greatest work was Jnana Pana, Loosely it can be translated as “Pot of Knowledge”. But “pana” here is not pot but
a style of folk poem. This is written in a common man’s language and in a common man’s verse. It preaches the greatness of repetition (singing) of the Holy God’s names. In between Poonthanam wrote about the world he saw and the world he wanted to see. Some people term it as the “Bhagavad Geetha of Malayalam. I am sure most of you would be surprised to know that Poonthanam has written four prayers in Tamil. The Tamil used by him is very archaic and is mixed a lot with Malayalam and Sanskrit words. In this work, he is trying to define what is Maya(illusion).)
 
1.Srushtikkum munpil sachidanandamakiya Brahmam yekam,
Intha drusya prapancham nasichaal Brhamam Yekam.

Before creation there was only one Brahmam which was divinely joyous,
If the world we see is completely destroyed then also there would be only one Brahmam.

 
2.Vyashti samashti vidham aayirunthalum Brahmam Yekam,
Koti Vedantha Sasthram Vicharichalum vanthalum Brahmam yekam.

Though beings are individual and are in Groups, there is only one Brahmam,
Even though we think of billions of Vedantha philosophy, there is only one Brahmam.

 
3.Moola prakruthikku appalum, yippalum Brahmam yekam,
Maya muggunam illathe nirgunamagiya Brahmam yekam,

Before and after the basic form of creation, there is only one Brahmam,
Without the three illusory characters, without any properties , there is only one Brahmam.

4.Kala thyathukku appothum ippothum Brahmam yekam,
Maya kattina karanam poale irunthalum Brahmam yekam.

Before and after the past , present and future, There is only one Brahmam,
Even if it appears to be cause as shown by illusion , There is only one Brahmam.

Even if it appears to be cause as shown by illusion , There is only one Brahmam.
Rather like the Santhi Mantram Poornamadah Poornamidam....:dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::dance::
 
5.Antha para brahma vasthu , padathil uditha mayai,
THuchamaanalum vasthavam poale maymkanantha mayai

That thing called divine Brahmam is the illusion born at the feet,
And even if it is insignificant , it is an illusion which will make you feel that it is true.

 
6.THanakenthapadi venam, anthapadi cheyyum antha mayai ,
Jagadheswarananalum kadakka koodatha kaan antha mayai.

That illusion acts in
a manner that it likes to act ,
And please know, that even god of universe cannot cross that illusion.

That illusion acts in

And please know, that even god of universe cannot cross that illusion.

 
7.SAthum asathum sadaa sathumalla kaan antha mayai,
Veda sastrangalum nirvachaneeyam kaan antha Mayai.

Please know that illusion is neither true nor false and definitely not always true,
Please know that even
Vedas and Sastras cannot define that illusion.
 
8.Shudha spahatika niram aayirundhalum antha mayai,
Onnum thionnayju irundu andhakaramai moodum kaan antha Mayai .

If something is of the colour of pure crystal, that illusion,
Would cover it with darkness and make it invisible . please know this.
