Background

A description of the experience

I, Lalla, The Poems of Lal Ded translated by Ranjit Hoskote

Knowledge is a garden.  Hedge it with calm,
self restraint, right effort.  Let your past acts graze in it,
goats fattened for the altars of the Mother Goddess.
When the garden is bare, the goats killed, you can walk free.
