Theme: Transcendence



Pure white lotus hand
emerges from its muddy pond
Finger petals spread wide
Reach into the sacred night

The sun does not shine here
Nor moon nor stars
This is a sacred light
the light of sat-chit-ananda

Silence is the ocean here
so deep it demolishes all sound
Even Om is silent here
Thought rests in blissful quiet

No senses perceive eternal night
sense objects all have vanished
Atman has awakened
Being has become

The lotus bathes in blissful peace
Nothing to disturb it now
Awareness of existence is
the divine and only Truth

(Inspired by Kathopanishad)
