When my mind was cleansed of impuritiesby Lalla
English version by B. N. Paramoo
Original Language Kashmiri
When my mind was cleansed of impurities, like a mirror of its dust and dirt,
I recognized the Self in me:
When I saw Him dwelling in me,
I realized that He was the Everything and I was nothing.
