Bhagavad Gita - Thou art Parabrahma
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
From The Bhagavad Gita [translated by Sir Edwin Arnold]
Yes! Thou art Parabrahma! The High Abode!
The Great Purification! Thou art Brahma
Eternal, All creating, Holy, First
Without beginning! Lord of Lords and Gods!
Declared by all the saints – by Narada
Vyasa, Asita and Devalas
And here Thyself declaring unto me!
What Thou hast said now know I to be truth
O Kesava! That neither gods nor men
Nor demons comprehend Thy mystery
Made manifest, Divinest! Thou Thyself
Thyself alone dost know, Maker Supreme!
Master of all the living! Lord of the Gods
King of the Universe! To Thee alone
Belongs to tell the heavenly excellence
Of those perfections wherewith Thou dost fill
These worlds of Thine; Pervading, Immanent!
How shall I learn, Supremest Mystery!
To know Thee, thou I muse continually?
Under what form of Thine unnumbered forms
Mayst Thou be grasped? Ah! Yet again recount
Clear and complete, Thy great appearances
The secrets of Thy Majesty and Might
Thou High Delight of Men! Never enough
Can mine ears drink the Amrit of such words
