Lalla - Who’s the garland maker, who’s his wife
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I, Lalla, The Poems of Lal Ded translated by Ranjit Hoskote
Who’s the garland maker, who’s his wife?
What flowers will they pluck to offer Him?
With what water will they sprinkle Him?
With what chant will they wake the deepest Self?
The mind’s the garland-maker, his wife the desire for bliss.
They will pluck flowers of adoration to offer Him.
They will sprinkle Him with the moon’s dripping nectar.
They will wake the deepest Self with the chant of silence
