The Ultimate Cause

He is not Hari, He is not the Lord Siva.

He is the Ultimate Cause,

In the Beyond of Beyond,

Transcending Blackness, Redness, and Whiteness.

Immovable.

Try not to understand:

He is not big, He is not small.

He is Infinite Distance,

Immovable,

Transcending even

Supreme Quiescence.
