Untold beauty

"May there be auspiciousness of true awakening

Indivisible from the spontaneous wakefulness,

The permanent and firm vajra abode

Of the changeless innate nature."



"Invisible is the One to mortal eyes,

beyond thought and beyond change.

Know that the One is,

and cease from sorrow."

Bhagavad Gita (1st or 2nd Century)



What you truly are can never be told


there is no-thing to grasp or hold


Always here,  nearer than near


free from sorrow or fear


so brilliantly clear


 The waves rise and fall


in the boundless Heart of all


This knowing song of stillness 


This placeless place of grace


This face behind the face


This unknown knower


You are That

Both beauty and ugliness
Are as seen not seen by
The beholder
