Let Me Sit Near You O Lord! (Upanishad) - Poem by Neela Nath Das

Let me sit near o Lord
and teach me how to get
to salvation.
Rain on me the drops
of enlightened knowledge,
let me show the way
to Brahma.
The Lotus is in slumber
and my conscience
is in the tunnel of ignorance.
Show me the ball of fire
symbolizing the eternal light
of knowledge, the Brahmajnan!
