From The Dhammapada

Preceded by perception are mental states,
For them is perception supreme,
From perception have they sprung.
If, with perception polluted, one speaks or acts,
Thence suffering follows
As a wheel the draught ox’s foot.

Preceded by perception are mental states,
For them is perception supreme,
From perception have they sprung.
If, with tranquil perception, one speaks or acts
Thence ease follows
As a shadow that never departs.

Verses 1, 2 of Chapter I : The Dhammapada : Translation : John Ross Carter and Mahinda Palihawadana

The path to the Deathless is awareness;
Unawareness, the path of death.
They who are aware do not die;
They who are unaware are as dead.

Having known this distinctly,
Those who are wise in awareness,
Rejoice in awareness,
Delighted in the pasture of the noble ones.

Those meditators, persevering,
Forever firm of enterprise,
Those steadfast ones touch Nibbana.
Incomparable release from bonds.

Verses 21, 22 and 23 of Chapter II : The Dhammapada : Translation : John Ross Carter and Mahinda Palihawadana

The quivering, wavering mind,
Hard to guard, hard to check,
The sagacious one makes straight,
Like a fletcher, an arrow shaft.

Like a water-creature
Plucked from its watery home and thrown on land,
This mind flaps;
(Fit) to discard (is) Mara’s sway.

Commendable is the taming
Of mind, which is hard to hold down,
Nimble, alighting wherever it wants.
Mind subdued brings ease.

Knowing this body as a pot of clay,
Securing this mind as a citadel,
One might fight Mara with wisdom’s weapons,
Guard what has been gained-and be unattached.

Verses 33-35 and 40 of Chapter III : The Dhammapada : Translation : John Ross Carter and Mahinda Palihawadana

From The Bible

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the surface of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
Then God said, ‘’Let there be light’’; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day and the darkness He called Night.

Genesis: The Bible: Translation : Thomas Nelson

Then God said, ‘;Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years, and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth’’; the greater light to rule the day, and lesser light to rule the night. He made stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness.

Genesis: The Bible: Translation : Thomas Nelson

And God said, ‘’See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food.
Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food’’; and it was so.

Genesis: The Bible: Translation : Thomas Nelson

From The Principal Upanishads

The Seeker enquires:
At whose wish does the mind
Wander so far?
At whose wish does the body exist?
At whose wish does the tongue speak:
What God commands
The eye with its gifts of colour
Or the ear with its gifts of sound?

The Teacher answers:
It is the Self, Brahman,
As Consciousness, Reality, Love,
Which is the ear of the ear,
Mind of the Mind,
Speech of the Speech,
Breath of the Breath
And eye of of the eye.
Once one surrenders false
Indetification of the Self with body-mind
But sees the Self as Consciousness,
Awareness, with the senses
And the brain as servants,
Then freed from the senses and brain,
The wise know the Self as Consciousness
To be none other than the formless
Unqualified Absolute Brahman;
This world of relative time
And enjoy Eternity.

On this plane the eye does not see,
The tongue does not wag idly,
Nor mind grasp mindlessly,
The whole nature of Brahman
We neither understand
Nor are able to teach, alas.

Different is Brahmin from the known,
Different too from the unknown,
So the Ancient Rishis tell us

The Kena Upanishad: The Principal Upanishads : Translation: Alan Jaobs
 

The Great hymn is Creation
Set in the sapphire sky,
Where in colourful birds chirp and fly,
And mankind marches on resolutely.
The object of this praise is Vayu, air
The eighty verses are succour,
For by their means all is known.

The Great Hymn is truly a heaven.
For from its gifts of rainfall
All that exists on Earth arises.
The object of her praise
Is Aditya, the Sun.
The eighty verses are succour
For by ''That'' one reaches all.


The Great Hymn is truly mankind,
He and she are great.
They are Prajapati,
Lord of Creation,
Let us meditate.
I am That Hymn

From The Bhagvad Gita

Trembling with awe and wonder, Arjuna bowed his head, and joining his hands in adoration he thus spoke to his God.

I see in thee all the gods, O my God; and the infinity of the beings of thy creation. I see god Brahma on his throne of lotus, and all the seers and serpents of light.

All around I behold thy infinity: the power of thy innumerable arms, the visions from thy innumerable eyes, the words from thy innumerable mouths, and the fire of life of thy innumerable bodies. Nowhere I see a beginning or middle or end of thee. O God of all, Form Infinite!

I see the splendour of an infinite beauty which illumines the whole universe. It is thee! With thy crown and sceptre and circle. How difficult thou art to see! But I see thee: as fire, as the sun, blinding, incomprehensible.

Thou art the imperishable, the highest End of knowledge, the support of this vast universe. Thou, the everlasting ruler of the law of righteousness, the Spirit who is and who  was at the beginning.

I see thee without beginning, middle or end; I behold thy infinite power of thy innumerable arms. I see thine eyes as the sun and the moon. And I see thy face as a sacred fire that gives light and life to the whole universe in the splendour of a vast offering.

Heaven and earth and all the infinite spaces are filled with thy Spirit; and before the wonder of thy fearful majesty the three worlds tremble.

From The Tanahkh The Hebrew Bible

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 1

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 2

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 3

And God saw the light, that [it was] good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 4

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. 6

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which [were] under the firmament from the waters which [were] above the firmament: and it was so. 7

And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. 8

And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it was so. 9

And God called the dry [land] Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that [it was] good. 10

From The Quran

 

Allah is the Light
Of heavens and the earth.
The parable of His Light
Is as if there were a Niche
And within it a Lamp:
The Lamp enclosed in Glass;
The glass is as it were
A brilliant star;
Lit from a blessed Tree,
An olive, neither of the East
Nor of the West
Whose oil is well-nigh
Luminous,
Though fire scarce touched it.
Light upon light!
Allah doth guide who He will
To His light.
Allah doth set forth Parables
For men: and Allah
Doth know all things.

Verse 35: The Light:  The Quran: Translation:  Abdullah Yusuf Ali


(Lit is such a light)
In houses , which Allah
Hath permitted to be raised
To honour; for the celebrations,
In them, of His name:
In them is He glorified
In the mornings and
In the evenings (again and again)-

Verse 36: The Light:  The Quran: Translation:  Abdullah Yusuf Ali

Allah! There is no god
But He-the Living,
The Self-subsisting, Eternal.
No slumber can seize Him
Nor sleep. His are all things
In the heavens and on earth.
Who is there that can intercede
In his presence except
As He permitteth? He knoweth
What ( appear to His creatures)
As) Before or After
Or Behind them.
Nor shall they compass
Aught of His knowledge
Except as He willeth.
His Throne doth extend
Over the heavens
And the earth, and He feeleth
No fatigue in guarding
And preserving them
For He is the Most High
The Supreme in glory

Verse  255 : The Heifer : The Quran: Translation:  Abdullah Yusuf Ali

Let there be no compulsion
In religion. Truth stands out
Clear from Error: whoever
Rejects Evil and believes
In Allah hath grasped
The most trustworthy
Handhold that never breaks.
And Allah heareth
And knoweth all things.

Verse 257 : The Heifer: The Quran: Translation:  Abdullah Yusuf Ali
 

This is the Book: in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah; who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them; and who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter. They are on (true guidance),  from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.

The Quran: 2:25: Translation:  Abdullah Yusuf Ali

To Allah belong the East
And the West: whithersoever
Ye turn, there is Allah's countenance.
For Allah is All-Embracing,
All-Knowing
 

Verse 115: The Heifer: The Quran: Translation:  Abdullah Yusuf Ali
 

By the Firmament
Which returns (in its round).

And by the Earth
Which opens out
(For the gushing of springs
Or the sprouting of vegetation)-

The Window of the Heavens Always Open and Calling: All We Have to Do Is: To Choose to Be Open, Listen and Respond

 

 

 

Imagine a Rose-Boat

Imagine a rose floating like a tiny little boat on this ocean of infinity
And raise your soul-sail on this wee-little boat and go seeking out
All along feed on nothing but the light that you gather only light
Fear shall never fathom you nor greed can tempt nor illusion divert
For Love you are by name by deeds you are love's working-map

 

 

Only in the transparent pool of knowledge, chiselled out by the sharp incision of wisdom, is seen the true face of what truth is: That what  beauty paints, that what music sings, that what love makes into a magic. And it is life: a momentary magnificence, a-bloom like a bubble's miniscule exposition, against the spread of this awe-inspiring composition of the the Universe. Only through the path of seeking, learning, asking and developing, only through the vehicles and vesicles of knowledge, only through listening to the endless springs flowing beneath, outside, around and beyond our reach, of wisdom, we find the infinite ocean of love which is boundless, eternal, and being infinite, it makes us, shapes us and frees us onto the miracle of infinite liberty: without border, limitation or end. There is nothing better, larger or deeper that humanity can ever be than to simply be and do love. The Humanion
