Part IV — The body and the soul

1.

O world-ignorance,
Although you have shackled my feet, I am free.
Although you have chained my hands, I am free.
Although you have enslaved my body, I am free.

I am free because I am not the body.
I am free because I am the soul-bird
That flies in Infinity-Sky;

I am the soul-child
That dreams on the lap
Of the immortal King Supreme.
