Verse 2891 Tirumantiram. Tirumular warns man of six evils benighting man who is born with Egoism, which he has to shed before reaching God. The evils are Lust, Hatred, Infatuation, Avarice, Arrogance (Ego) and Malice. Man is born with Ahankara (the feeling of I, Me, Mine) which is portrayed by the Mynah bird. All around this Mynah bird are the evil animals: The owl, the snake, the parrot, the cat and the Quail. God is warning the Man (the Mynah Bird) of the six evils. The mouse represents God or the Kundalini Power.
