Song For Recognition - Poem by Harekrishna Meher

Who says you are not the divine light?
Who announces
you are not glorified with virtues? (0)
*
Self-luminous you are like Sun, .
In the mundane cycle,
you are limitless firmament.
Who says you are not gladdening
the mortal world?
Who says you are not the divine light? (1)
*
In the great ocean of world,
you are the beauteous pearl.
Who says you are not auspiciously griefless?
Who says you are not the divine light? (2)
*
Born with the prestigious human form,
why are you unknown?
Don't you recognize your own self
In the universe?
Who says you have not removed
the veil of illusion?
Who says you are not the divine light? (3)
*
Are you intimidated
and obsessed with duality?
Both illusion and infatuation
exist in this world.
Who says you have not discarded distress?
Who says you are not the divine light? (4)
*
Where have you come from?
When shall you depart?
In the mundane region,
all seem kith and kin due to illusion.
Who says you are not the vision of wisdom?
Who announces
you are not glorified with virtues?
Who says you are not the divine light? (5)
