I left the worldby Pattinattar
English version by Kamil V. Zvelebil
Original Language Tamil
I left the world.
I do not wish the two-fold deeds.
I do not mix with idle, useless men.
I do not listen to their speech.
I touched the state
when only Truth
I swept away
pleasures and pains.
which is beyond the reach
of the four ancient Vedas
