Best Poem of Lalleshwari

The Soul, Like The Moon

The soul, like the moon,
is now, and always new again.

And I have seen the ocean
continuously creating.

Since I scoured my mind
and my body, I too, Lalla,
am new, each moment new.

My teacher told me one thing,
live in the soul.

When that was so,
I began to go naked,
and dance.

[Taken from Naked Song, by Lalla / Translated by Coleman Barks]

Read the full of The Soul, Like The Moon

He Stands Close By You!

Give up imagining that the skill of killing desire,
and meditating on the Self are too costly to buy;
He stands close by you! Do not look for Him far away.
The void was dissolved in the Void!
