Akka Mahadevi

(1130 - 1160 / Uduthadi / India)

How Can You Be Modest

People,
male and female,
blush when a cloth covering their shame
comes loose
When the lord of lives
lives drowned without a face
in the world, how can you be modest?

When all the world is the eye of the lord,
onlooking everywhere, what can you
cover and conceal?
