Sat Darshan

From Sat Darshan

As in a well of water deep,

Dive deep with Reason cleaving sharp.

With speech, mind and breath restrained,

Exploring thus mayest thou discover

     The real source of ego-self.

The mind through calm in deep plunge enquiries.

That alone is real quest for the Self.

– Ramana Maharshi              –  (trans. Kapali Sastry)

– From Poetry for the Spirit:  Ed. Alan Jacobs
