Smaller than the smallest

Transliteration

Anor aniyam mahato mahiyan

Atmasya jantor nihito guhayam.

 

Translation

 

Smaller than the smallest life,

Larger than the infinite Vast,

The soul breathes in the secret heart of man.

 

Comment

 

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
