“The really refined are those
who see poison poured out
for their consumption
and still accept the goblet
with cheer and fortitude”-
so said Valluvar
and Socrates proved the maxim.
I seek to walk in the footsteps
of these the truly noble;
and I have dedicated my talents and life
for the uplift of humanity.
Detractors who aim darts
of invectives against me
and derive pleasure thereby-they too are entitled
to my blessings unqualified
for I cannot think harm
of any in the Universe!
ECSTASY OF ENLIGHTENMENT
On the surface of the vast volume of Earth that is the world I have my being as a human form small in size but endowed with a mind that reaches out far and wide.
Who indeed can explain the wondrous phenomenon of the countless thousands of thoughts that emerge from that mind?
By the Grace of the Omniscient, my physical form and shape were structured to completion starting from the origin of a single droplet of the sexual vital fluid. 0, how do tiny little cells in cooperative endeavor stage endless miracles in the metabolic routine!
The embryo was a dot significantly pregnant with the blueprint of the form to grow in awesome grandeur. By the will of the Supreme Who rules without any administrative panoply and by the continuing imprints of my Karmas, I arrived on this our planet Earth.
The prowess of the Almighty is limitless for the creation and yet for bringing forth living being on to the world He shaped the feminine form and equipped and endowed it: O, how many of us realize the glory that is attached to Motherhood in the process of the evolution of mankind!
The whole world, of course, knows that they who sought to humiliate Womanhood and attain renown for themselves collected but a load of sins and fell into unrelieved misery. The thoughtful on the other hand who praised and respected the greatness of Woman live in joy here, even as the Almighty.
To maintain the physical body one needs worldly goods. Truth is essential likewise for the soul to go to its goal; And Arts and Sciences nurture the intellect without a doubt. Having realized this I live in the Centre serving to enlighten the people of all countries.
So as to elevate the level of thinking to Wisdom and in order to gain control over the senses five, the sixth sense was endowed to man by the Almighty. And even in the debate as to whether He exists or not He remains interwoven like warp and weft in cloth.
Having delivered from Himself all beings great and small, and functioning within them as life within their life and as their feelings and Consciousness He, in His compassion, has also spread out as varieties of foodgrains and plants for the survival and enjoyment of the living beings on Earth.
To that Almighty I put the question “Who am I?” and the answer reverberated in the joint functions of the body, life, and Consciousness: “The body is the vehicle and what animates it is life.
Pure Consciousness is Truth, the Absolute, and that is what I am, that is what I am!”
Through the process of inner Travel steady and through meditation intense in total solitude, I came to realize the Absolute, the Real Self, that pervades the Universe in unending effulgence and that is within me too as in all objects and appearances.
Enshrining Him within me I praised and adored Him. He then absorbed me and I am He who sings.
You too can realize this the self-same Truth and wade ashore, my friends. It is for that I now sing encompassing the people of the entire world.
May the world live happily maintaining all prosperities. May spiritual knowledge flourish and inform worldly enjoyments. And may the striving for Truth motivate the human race uniting all minds in the noble endeavor. Sing this song with me, friends, and feel the perennial bliss…
