staged in a dream”

Thou has a thousand eyes and yet not one eye;
Thou host a thousand forms and yet not one form.
I am neither a child, a young man,
nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste.
Sing the songs of joy to the Lord,
serve the Name of the Lord,
and become the servant of His servants.
“Wherever the Protector of all keeps me,
there is heaven.”
“I am neither a child, a young man,
nor an ancient; nor am I of any caste.”

Higher still is truthful living.”

and one eats the fly, along with the sweets.”

and the Messenger of Death will not be able to touch you.”

owing to ignorance of the Self,
the transient state arises of the individualized, limited,
phenomenal aspect of the Self.”

make the heart the pen, the intellect the writer,
write that which has no end or limit.”
