I Am One And Not Five - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

I am one and not five
we are five and not one.

I am one and we are five
Stay together here.

Are we getting pleasure?
That I do not know, my dear.

So long as I have not acquired
The power to understand you
I can not give any view.

I am not satisfied as you know
With all these riches
With all excellent objects
And with you all.

Still you call me
And I make myself present
Before you for what
That is best known to you.

I have gained equanimity of mind
It is true and also it is true
You are ever attained.

You remain veiled, my dear
And I prospered.

I am the world, you are not
You are in the world though.

I am one and I have five
Five is one and one is five.
