Thought

Out of wonder and curiosity

To uncover what is reality

Tracing from effect to cause

Then the other way and pause


When aught nor naught was there

Nor bright sky view to share

Nor heaven’s broad roof above

Stirred from what and from whereof?


Black ocean darkness covering

Without wind breath beginning

One existing none else distinct

None born or living or extinct


Who really knows and who proclaim

From where birth and creation came?

How deities were born from thought?

How universe - its forms were brought?


That One surely knows it all

Of ocean’s dark waves’ rise and fall

Perhaps It knows the secret’s echo

Or oblivious also doesn’t know?


(Derived from Nasadiya Sukta)

Prayer

O Lord mysterious and formless. Grant Thy gift of standing alone in and as Thee – my origin, pure Being, one without a second, unbroken by time and unbounded by space.
