Night of Creation

ram H singhal

On the Night of Creation I was awake,
Busy at work while everyone slept.
I was there to see the first wink
and hear the first tale told.
I was the first one caught
in the hair of the Great Imposter.

Whirling around the still-point of ecstasy
I spun like the wheel of heaven.

How can I describe this to you?
You were born later.

I was a companion of that Ancient Lover;
Like a bowl with a broken rim
I endured his tyranny.
Why shouldn’t I be as lustrous as the King’s cup?
I have lived in the room of treasures.
Why shouldn’t this bubble become the sea?
I am the secret that lies at its bottom…

Shhhh… no more words
Hear only the voice within.
Remember, the first thing He said was:
“We are beyond words.”

Story of pure Mirrors

ram H singhal

Body of earth,

don’t talk of earth

Tell the story of pure mirrors ,

The Creator has given you this splendor,

Why talk of anything else?

Only Divine

ram H singhal

Watching my hand; divine is moving it.
Hearing my voice; divine is speaking…
Walking from room to room —
No one here but…. only divine

Light of Truth

ram H singhal

Now comes everlasting beauty.
Now comes abundant grace,
Now comes boundless purity.

The infinite treasure is shining,
The mighty ocean is roaring,
The morning of grace has come —
Morning? — No!
This is the eternal Light of God!

Who occupies this beautiful form?
Who is the ruler and the prince?
Who is this wise ? —
Nothing but a veil.

The wine of love removes these veils.
Drink with your head and your eyes —
Both your eyes,
and both your heads!

Your head of clay is from the earth,
Your pure awareness is from heaven.
O how vast is that treasure
which lies beneath the clay!
Every head you see depends on it!

Behind every atom of this world
hides an infinite universe.

O Saaqi, free us from the facade of this world.
Bring wine — barrels full!
Our eyes see too straight —
straight past the truth!
