Smaller than the smallest


Anor aniyam mahato mahiyan

Atmasya jantor nihito guhayam.




Smaller than the smallest life,

Larger than the infinite Vast,

The soul breathes in the secret heart of man.




The soul is God’s eternal child and man’s great-grandfather.

As God’s eternal child the soul unceasingly plays.

As man’s eternal grandfather the soul perpetually enjoys.


Sri Chinmoy
