In bricks and in granite,

By Civivakkiyar
(9th Century)

English version by Kamil V. Zvelebil

In bricks and in granite,
in the red-rubbed lingam,
in copper and brass
is Siva's abode --
that's what you tell us,
and you're wrong.
Stay where you are
and study your own selves.
Then you will BECOME
the Temple of God,
full of His dance and spell
and song.
