The Body of God

D. Dennis Hudson

Oxford University Press

This chapter translates and briefly discusses each of the ten stanzas of Tirumangai's poem about the temple. The two‐part structure of each stanza, divided between God in the first two lines and emperor in the second two, and the complementary unique division in the temple between God as the vimana and king in the dynastic history on the surrounding wall form the germ of this extended project.

Keywords:   poem, Tirumangai, temple, God, stanza, emperor, vimana
