"When I first saw (it) coming towards me I did not believe it could have been possible within my heart to have witnessed such a beautiful thing, but then later I cried out to my mother and brothers that it was approaching us...and it was at that moment when I saw HER in all her finery that I knew I had become a man. Periya Kommamman! Periya Kommamman! Come back at me and teach me the lesson of living! Periya Kommamman! Periya Kommamman! So much to lend heart to! So much to give! So much to give! Sri Krishna! Sri Krishna! Lift up my sword and bear me away!" -- Narayama Pandit Paramesvara (Lam. XXI Song A) © 1678.
