    When I first dicovered Lalleswari, I had no real clues about what her writings would be like.. But now with almost a month since I had been reading her poems, I do feel that she's a poetess worth reading.. Her poems are filled with metaphysical concepts and basic ethics and moral values, and almost all of them attempt to express the poetess/philosopher/saint's idea of how one can attain freedom from the mundane world and attain freedom all greeds, evils, and other forms of sins..

    Her works are simple and yet profound with each poem leaving the reader with a chance to interpret them from her or his own point of view..

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]

O Infinite Consciousness

O infinite Consciousness,
brimming with elixir,
You live within my body,
and I worship only You.
I do not care
if I die, take birth,
or pass into some other state.
These things are so ordinary now.
