by Frithjof Schuon

Original Language French

The North, the South; the East and then the West:
Their mysteries we carry in our breast.
Zenith, Nadir, Spirit and Earth, 'tis we:
Purity, Love, Strength and Serenity.

Each value in the universal frame
Within our soul and spirit is the same.
Each quarter or each quality of Space
Shows a divine and cosmic Beauty's face.

So let us hear Eternal Wisdom's call:
By thyself truly, and thou art the All.
