SABCL - Volume 5
The Bliss of Brahman
I have become a1 foam-white sea of bliss,
I am a curling2 wave of God’s delight,
A shapeless flow3 of happy passionate light,
A whirlpool of the streams4 of Paradise.
I am a cup of His felicities,
A thunderblast of His golden ecstasy’s might,
A fire of joy upon creation’s height,
I am His rapture’s wonderful abyss.
I am drunken with the glory of the Lord,
I am vanquished by the beauty of the Unborn;
I have looked, alive, upon5 the Eternal’s face.
My mind is cloven by His radiant sword,
My heart by His beatific touch is torn;
My life is a meteor-dust of His flaming Grace.
