Did my mind,
Like the top that has lost its speed,
Cease to whirl and come to a stop?
And was the darkness of my mind dispelled?
And did I, transcending the Void
That knows neither light nor darkness
Reach the Void within me
That is filled with peace beyond understanding
And bliss that is surpassing great?
Did I espouse the paths of chariya and kriya
And endeavor to reach the Goal?
Or why did I not control the precious prana breath
That filleth the six adharas and become a yogi pure,
But instead became a man of the world,
Losing my senses in the process,
And made no effort at seeking?
Oh! Thou the Reality that eludes seeking!
The God of Knowledge that dwells in my thoughts!
Thou the Bliss Refulgent!
