The Essence is only as far away as the sky

by Akha

English version by Krishnaditya


The Essence is only as far away as the sky
Where there is no dawn or dusk.
Rising and setting are where there is form,
That is to say the entire world.
There is just a void in the place of the world, Akha,
If one looks at it with the vision of a sage.

-- from Wings of the Soul: Poems of Akha: The Spiritual Poet of India, Translated by Krishnaditya
