Song to the Ishvara

OM! Oh lord of all, to which all things are the effect. The ruler of all that is, has been and will ever be. The keeper of the steady thought and sustainer of all. To which the sun bows, to which the moon bows. To which the stars sing praises. To which the clouds carry, from which the rains fall. Blessed above all. Keeper of the steady thought. To that I sing praises. To that I feel bliss. Oh Lord to which the breath of life is granted. Out of which all winds blow. The keeper of light. The dweller of darkness. To the one who knows no direction. To the one who from which comes all direction. May you be known in all those directions. Out of which came from you! May ignorance be taken from the eyes of the world. May the light of your steady thought illuminate the hearts of this world. In your steady thought, grant us the path to illumination. Grant us access to your chambers. If our hearts and thoughts are right. If not, pull us in your direction.

OM! Slowly, slowly we make progress toward union with you. Slowly, slowly we come to know you. Guide us in the right path. Show us the answers to our questions. remove the stumbling blocks from our path. Remove our hands from our eyes. Let us know your infinite glory.

OM! Let us speak your divine name. May it be imprinted upon our minds. May it be imprinted upon our hearts! Let fear not overcome us. Let us not know any other path. Let us see the truth among the lies. Grant us the vision to see things as they really are. Reality hides within you and only you. Make our days moderately bright. Our nights moderately dark. Illuminate the inside and the outside in equal measure. Let us not be hot or cold. But let us dwell always in you. Oh holder of the steady thought. Allow us to shine your light into this world. Let us follow your example always. Do not allow us to fall victim to the false. Let us forever know out place in the light of truth. Let us not know too much this way or that way. But let us find balance and harmony. Within and without all things, let us find your balance and harmony. To the one who dwells in all things I sent my praises. Let me keep a constant and steady watch to you. May my mind not falter. May my body be strong. May my eyes and heart know you. May my mouths and my heart know you. May my smell and hearing know you in my heart. May I return to you. To your everlasting abode. Let me know my place among men. Let me know myself as I am. I am not this, I am all things. I am not this world, I am all worlds. I am not this body, I am all bodies. I am not this life. I am certainly all lives. Praise be to that!
