The eightfold Yoga

by Pattinattar

English version by Kamil V. Zvelebil
Original Language Tamil

The eightfold Yoga
the six regions of the body
the five states
they have all left and gone
totally erased
and in the open
Void
I am left
amazed.
     There is but a red rounded Moon
     A fountain of white milk
     for delight
     The unobtainable Bliss
     has engulfed me
     A precipice
     of light.

-- from The Poets of the Powers: Freedom, Magic, and Renewal, Translated by Kamil V. Zvelebil
