Here in the heart of India
There is a sacred mountain Arunachala,
The legends say that Shiva-God lives in the mountain
On a full moon I walked around Him from all the sides.
I walked by hard and lengthy way
And saw my whole life as integral
And wall of time was crumbling
And the past lived here near to the present
And light of future was dissolved in it forever
My soul heeded music of all times
And sang the song of life and glorified God:
"God, you're so fine!
You created this mountain and the valley,
In which gave me mildness of night,
And clarity of clear moon.
Soul cries to the body to love you
And the body is so obedient to me
And it continues
In the beautiful lines of the holy mountain
And sanctity of my body
Calls me to heights of senses.
I go by timelessness
In circle of four spaces
And every space
Shows me new look of God
And I see myself in it.
Here the thoughts like clouds
Capped the mountain top,
I accepted them joyfully and without sorrow
And the thoughts slid down the mountainside
Then slipped off
And touched with valley of my heart
The warmth of the heart turned them in weightlessness
On the sky had grown wonderful patterns of clouds,
But suddenly they saw
Pale princess - my moon
And played with her,
Moon hid behind the clouds
And in the world suddenly spills ink,
And the night descends veil for those,
Who doesn't sleep and praises Goddess
Talents and thieves singing songs for her
The poet takes the ink and writes a poems about love
And the thief takes the excess of property
And eases my way.
But suddenly the moon will playfully
come out from behind the clouds
And the world will fill with white paint
And holiness will reign on earth
My beauty, Goddess,
Give me white paint of light
I'll paint with it the people's hearts.
But need I also some red colour.
I want to see smile
In the light of the moon - red,
She promises me luck
And agitates the blood.
I want to kindle fire in your night
The fire in the minds of people with smile of love.
What else would you give me on the way?
Do you propose the milk of your celestial cows?!
Thank you, I do not drink it.
For me more pleasant Milky Way in heavens,
But you hid it from my eyes.
O beauty, how many stars you overshadowed with white light?
I go by way of eternity around the circle
And the mountain sends me kisses,
And there are lights from kissing left.
They move into some houses,
Which called here temples,
And I'm entering into your kiss,
My mountain, my God,
And clean my body and touch you
And fire tickles my palms.
You are so great!
And how gentle Your kisses!
On the road of time
The trees affably waving to me;
I was waiting for you long!
Do you know about me?
"Yes, we have all the knowledge of your heart
We remain peaceful.
Peace is in you, O Mary! "
And I became the soul of the trees,
They let me into their essence.
And the trees have become smarter
And the trees became animated
And we melted into each other,
And my leaves told me "Hello"
My clouds as thoughts of feelings
Fell on the top of the mountain
The mountain smiled at me: "See you, child"
At the end of the path
Meeting and parting merged
In one mighty stream of life and light...
And... LOVE reigned in the soul.
