Word, Thought, Kula and Akula cease to be there!

by Lalla

English version by B. N. Paramoo
Original Language Kashmiri

Word, Thought, Kula and Akula cease to be there!
Neither silence nor yogic postures gain you admission there;
Neither Shiva, nor Shakti abide there!
Whatever remains is That; this is the Lesson!

-- from The Ascent of Self: A Reinterpretation of the Mystical Poetry of Lalla-Ded, by B. N. Paramoo
