Who can describe the Source of the universe

by Dariya

English version by K. N. Upadhyaya

Who can describe the Source of the universe,
Containing this world, the underworld and clusters
     of galaxies manifested in higher regions?
The One whose luster, like a luminous gem,
     illumines the universe,
Which poet can comprehend and follow
     the pattern of His manifestations?

It is the Merciful Lord
     who bestowed His grace on me,
And I could see the glory
     of His entire manifestations.
The play of love of the Limitless Primal Being,
     I did see in entirety.
This is an inaccessible and unfathomable Divine Wonder,
How can any poet give its description?

-- from Dariya Sahib: Saint of Bihar, Translated by K. N. Upadhyaya
