Ashtavakra Gita verse 20:3
and post notes and photos about your poem like Unseeking Seeker.
“Where is Knowledge and ignorance?
Where is “I”?
Where is “this”?
Where is “mine”?
Where is bondage and liberation?
Self has no attributes”
Verse revisited on 27-August-2022
The veil of maya illusion and instrument of mind
Narrow sensory spectrum that too does bind
Useful no doubt for the world of transience
Yet reveals not our soul’s luminescence
Whilst wisdom directly imbibed in stillness
When entwined with universal consciousness
Merely dropping away of mind-body instrument
That we become aware of the inner bliss current
Becoming in effect that who we always were
In active cognition feeling nodes within stir
Head-heart fusion, both now act as one
‘I’, ‘this’ and ‘mine’ become light of the sun
Wherein all that is, is consciousness singular
One appearing as the many as boundaries blur
The all pervading spiritual light self-luminescent
Renewing within itself God’s rapturous bliss current
