This Great Being



Vedaham etam purusam mahantam

Aditya-varnam tamasah parastat.


I have known this Great Being,

effulgent as the sun

beyond the boundaries of tenebrous gloom.


Before our realisation this Great Being quenched our heart’s thirst.

After our realisation we feed the soul’s hunger of this Great Being.

As man’s eternal grandfather the soul perpetually enjoys
