Rig Veda - The Abyss
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Rig Veda [translated by Wendy Doniger]
With reverence in this sacrifice I speak in prayer to the two who are wide, vast and massive, whose boundaries are far distant, who having received immortality bring good fortune and dispel evil. Sky and earth, guard us from the monstrous abyss.
Whatever wrong we have ever done to the gods, or to an old friend, or to the master of the house, for all of these let the thought in this hymn be an apology. Sky and earth, guard us from the monstrous abyss
