' Atma-Upadesa ~ Teaching About or of the Self '
As a mixture of what is the world and what is the real,
That which presents itself before us is a great iniquity indeed!
This is what is indeterminate, beyond grasp of word or mind;
How could the course of right reason move within its domain?
This expansive display of operative artifice as by Maya ordained
The shining creative principle of the universe is she;
And she, descending here, her limbs they are that become
The crust of the cosmic egg, in number ten million.
