1. The Absolute

No mind, no form, I only exist;
    Now ceased all will and thought;
The final end of Nature's dance,
    I am It whom I have sought.

A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;
    Beyond both knower and known;
A rest immense I enjoy at last;
    I face the One alone.

I have crossed the secret ways of life,
    I have become the Goal.
The Truth immutable is revealed;
    I am the way, the God-Soul.

My spirit aware of all the heights,
    I am mute in the core of the Sun.
I barter nothing with time and deeds;
    My cosmic play is done.
Sri Chinmoy, My Flute, Sri Chinmoy Lighthouse, New York, 1972
