37. Beauty


Human beauty

Is not skin-deep.

Human beauty

Is soul-deep.

Human beauty

Is God's illumining


Fulfilling reality

In His cosmic Game on earth.

Human beauty

Is not to be condemned,

Is not to be looked down upon,

Is not to be neglected.

Through human beauty,

Surrendering beauty

To the Absolute Supreme,

The seeker in us

Expedites his Godward journey.
