I have found the sea

by Tukaram

English version by John S. Hoyland
Original Language Marathi

I have found the sea,
An ocean limitless.
I have opened a treasury unending,
Its jewels blaze with the luster of a thousand thousand suns,
And they blaze here, in my soul.
Of a sudden,
Without any effort of mine own,
I have heard the eternal Secret,
I have learned to know God.
Here in my life hath blossomed
The flower of perfect union.

-- from Wild Poets of Ecstasy: An Anthology of Ecstatic Verse, Edited by D. J. Moores
