In Praise of God

109. ' All Gods Are But the One Shiva

It is only by the grace of Shiva decked with konrai flowers,
That the celestials and the humans who are in essence the same exist.
There is no God except He,
Our only duty is to enshrine Him in our heart.

25. TO SEEK THE COMPANY OF THE HOLY

543. ' Walk With The Holy '

I walk with those who go after God,
I live with those who sing His praise,
The Lord blesses those who seek Him,
With them I consort,
Their feet I seek.

24. PATIENCE

539. ' Patience is the Sheet-Anchor of Yogis

In the hearts of those who are firm of mind*
Like the (Varmamus) lizard of Yoga Vairagya
It lay besieging nose and tongue - (in Khechari Mudra)
In the troubled thought that knows but torture,
The only thing that stands still
Is devotional Patience Exceeding.

* - Troubled thought is a torture , "Vairagya" or firmness in divine thought alone is bliss. They who possess such firmness of mind are the yogis. Their firmness is revealed in 'khechari mudra', where tongue stops the nasal orifice in yogic breath-exercise. Their firmness can be compared to that of the 'Varamus' lizard, which tenaciously holds to the object it seizes and does not swerve, however hard you pull the reptile.

Verse 2348

They speak of states two, "I" and "He",
But there is a state, where "I" and "He" are undifferentiated,
Those who are in Supreme non-activity state,
Will not the difference cognize,
Abiding in Self, and He and Self as one uniting,
Is the state of "Sutha",Absolute pure."

1410. ' Practice Kundalini for a Year '

My thoughts stood still in meditation,
The Kundalini Fire filled the adharas,
I beheld the Light above in Sahasrara,
And as I held it in my heart,
In a year Sakti appeared,
The Sakti that is of Luminous Aum.

1411. ' Effect of Worship of Aum Sakti "

Luminous indeed they become
All that are in High Heaven,
Low they bowed before me;
All the world, and all the creatures therein,
Unto Narayana was I blessed
With all things goodly;
How can I recount
All that comes of Aum Sakti.

1547. ' Definition of True Path '

He is Light within you;
To know how to reach Him
Is True Path of Becoming;
If you know thus,
You know contradiction none;
That is Path Finite, your Goal's End;
They are but folks poor in spirit
That know not merging in Light Divine.

1548. ' Worldly Path is not True Path '

There is a True Path for the journey;
They that follow the swampy path worldly
See but the mirage;
They that avoid the sorrowful path of swirling Karma
Cross evil safe;
And shall sure worship at Lord's Feet.

1552. Worship Brings Immortal Life

Despair not !
You that thus sit and bewail
And you that have lost your better nature !
Seek Lord in penance true,
The Heavens' Lord shall wipe your tears away,
And grant you Greatness;
And you shall then Know births no more.

1635. ' Fruit of Tapas '

They who perform tapas true
Shall know the fruit thereof
They who speak truth pure
Shall know its fruit thereof
They who stand in righteous way
Shall enjoy the fruit thereof
They who are great on earth
Shall reap heaven's fruit.

1636. ' Tapas is the Yearning of Heart '

In oneness of mind I did tapas
And witnessed Lord's triumphant Feet;
In eagerness of quest I did tapas
And witnessed Shiva-State;
That alone is tapas
That you perform in the yearning of heart;
What avails the tapas of those,
Who thus perform not ?

1644. ' Tapas is Thought Becoming Shiva '

If your thoughts be all of Shiva
You need no more penance perform;
If your thoughts find a kin
With those that have Shiva Bliss tasted,
Then shall you be one with Shiva;
Then is truly Siddhi and Mukti;
But your thoughts shall be all Shiva
Only by tapas intense.

510. Lord Abides in Jnana Thought

To them who love Him dear,
The Lord will appear delicious cool;
To them steeped in worldly pleasures,
He will appear never
To Yogis who breath control;
But sure does He
In thoughts abide,
Of Jnanis, who doubt-free see.

511. Men of False Faith do not See the Lord Within

The Lord is within them,
Yet they know Him not,
They of faith false;
Limitless the flow o their evil deeds;
Down, down the deep drain it goes,
Never it's destination to know.

Ch. 17 THE UNWORTHY SOULS

507. ' He Who Gives to Sivajnanis will Become a Jnani

He who gives to God, Guru,
And the Great ones
Who are of passions rid,
Will a Jnanni become,
For him is not the burning hell,
That is destined for perpetrators
Of deadly sins five,
Who knows not consequences dire.

508. ' Do Not Give to Unworthy; the Giver and the Receiver Both Reach Hell

You may give away wealth
As massive as a mountain;
Yet if you give it
To those that adore not our Lord;
You shall with them reach
The Seventh Hell of ineffable pain.

Ch. 17 THE UNWORTHY SOULS

505. ' Giving to Unworthy is Undesirable '

Well may you tender her;
And with fresh grass feed her,
The barren cow can no milk give;
Even so is giving
Unto those who neither good nor holy are;
Like a crop they are,
Raised in season improper.

506. ' Do not Give to Those Who have no Love for God '

Give only unto those
Who follow the way of Yoga, Yama, and Niyama,
And who adore Lord, in constancy abiding;
To give to those who have no love for God,
A heinous crime, indeed it is.

Death waits for the moment due
And seizes lives;
But the Lord seizes Death's life;

He blesses all who know Him true;,
They who sought Him, immortals became.

608. Fruits of God-Realization

Those who realize God,
They alone get qualities godly;
They join the company of the immortals;
Pasa Vanishes;
They become immanent in all life
They hear sounds subtlest,
Even as fragrance emanates from a flower.

TIME FLEETS, SO CENTER ON LORD

181. The boy grows to youth, and youth as surely to old age decays,
But time's changes teach them not that nothing abides;
And so, in ceasless pursuit, His Sacred Feet, I seek
Him who, transcending this world, beyond the universe presides.

Chapter 4. Transitoriness of Youth

YOUTH IS SUGAR-CANE; AGE IS NUX VOMICA

180. Time was when fond damsels on him their love bestowed;
Like cane's sugary juice, slow sucked, was to them,
The idol of wenches with budding breasts and jewelled shapes;
But now the sweetest cane has bitter nux vomica* become.

WORLDLY DESIRES ARE NEVER-ENDING

175. Our desires grow, but none the truth to find;
There's one stake to hold but nine exits to leave;
The old familiar faces come smiling to greet and bow;
Deceivers ever, they abandon us without a reprieve.

FAITH INTENSE GIVES BLISS ETERNAL

306. Those who think they can attain the Shiva-bliss through the senses,
Are like children who played with sand considering it rice,
Those who do not understand that He cannot be pointed out objectively
Will ever remain ignorant.

In time to come, to the Immortals' status rise;
Who fail not in penance, His joyous Grace receive;
Thus the Lord of penances rare awards the Supreme prize.

LORD IS LIGHT DIVINE

1028. As Light Splendorous, He pervades worlds all,
Latent as sparkle in gem,
He is immanent in all;
For all those who sought Him as Light of Divine Word
He stood as beacon light on hill top.
And as the light within the eye too.

GIVE UP WORLDLY PLEASURES

2081. He is the peerless Light
He is the end of all;

And worlds all,
And the worldly pleasures
To you honey-sweet;
Give them up;
The Lord of limitless goodness
On you His Grace bestows.
