Pray, in which dimension is Awareness bound,
Gross, subtle or causal, are they It’s womb?
Do they obeisance pay,
To the silent joy
Of the measureless void of Atma,
Awareness, the Eternal, the Infinite.
Existence as well as Non- existence,
Manifestation and Non-manifestation —
Thus did speak, my Lord Krishna,
Of the dimension-less Void, Awareness,
His home, His Being, His Non-being!
No word can bind or define Awareness,
The Light of lights, the Lord of lords, the God of gods
The Word is Krishna, whom only Krishna knows.
Awareness—-Creator, Sustainer, the Destroyer too,
Of aeons of Yugas, Time and Timeless-ness,
In which Universes are born to play and die!
Who,Sir, are you, seven stones and six?
What is your entity, what the dimension?
You roll your eyes, you flaunt your pride,
In varied possessions, your kith and kin!
To what realm do they belong?
To which Gods, their obeisance pay?
When all is not, where are they?
When Awareness is not, where are they?
Never in a million lifetimes,
Have you worshipped these thoughts.
O Friend! What will happen to you, when Awareness is not
While conciousness to you does Brahma gift
Hasten to a Guru, the dispeller of Darkness, and,
Old age, sickness, pain, of a thousand lives destroy.
Kith and kin, possessions, and grammar, will be of no avail,
When in the Fire of Sanchit, you will roll, weak and frail!
Thus did Shankara too, moan for you,
In his compassion, did Shankra endlessly wail
Bhaj Govindam, Bhaj Govindam, Bhaj govindam Moorh Mate.
