9. Father-Consciousness, Mother-Light

I need You
To claim You —
Your Vision’s Reality.
Without it I am lost
    In ignorance-night.

I need You
To claim You —
Your Reality’s Perfection.
Without it I am captured
    By pleasure-snares.

Father and Mother,
I need You two
More than You
    Can possibly think.
Sri Chinmoy, The Golden Boat, part 9, Vishma Press, New York, 1974
