Sri Aurobindo - Kamadeva
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
When in the heart of the valleys and hid by the roses
The sweet Love lies,
Has he wings to rise to his heavens or in the closes
Lives and dies?
On the peaks of the radiant mountains if we should meet him
Proud and free,
Will he not frown on the valleys? Would it befit him
Chained to be?
Will you then speak of the one as a slave and a wanton,
The other too bare?
But [the Atman] is the only slave and the only monarch
It is [the Atman] who is Love and a boy and a slave for our passion
He was made to serve;
It is [the Atman] who is free and proud and the limitless tyrant
Our souls deserve.
