My soul is your temple, O Lord (from Shiva Manasa Pooja)

by Shankara

English version by P. R. Ramachander (reworked by Ivan M. Granger)


My soul is your temple, O Lord,
My actions are your handmaids,
My body is your home,
My senses witness only you,
My sleep is pure meditation on you,
These walking feet are your journey,
Whatever falls from my mouth is prayer to you,
Oh Lord, everything I say and do are worship.
