Hindu Poems


– The Bhagavad Gita


It moves and It moves not.
It is far and also It is near.
It is within and also It is without all this.

It is near to those who have the power to understand It,
For It dwells in the heart of every one;
But It seems far to those whose mind is covered by the clouds of sensuality and self-delusion.
It is within, because It is the innermost Soul of all creatures;
And It is without as the essence of the whole external universe,
Infilling it like the all-pervading ether.

– The Upanishads
