When Siddhanath applied lotion to my eyes

by Lalla

English version by Swami Muktananda
Original Language Kashmiri

When Siddhanath applied lotion to my eyes,
the cataracts that covered them dissolved.
I saw an astonishing sight.
Wherever I looked and whatever I beheld,
I saw my own Self, I saw God.

Wherever I looked, I saw my own Self!
O Lalli! This is the true seeing.

-- from Lalleshwari: Spiritual Poems by a Great Siddha Yogini, Translated by Swami Muktananda
