The Radiance Sutras

Here’s an excerpt from a wonderful new book we’ve found – a collection of beautiful poems in the yogic tradition, written in Sanskrit in the Middle Ages.  I you like it, this interview with the translator might also appeal….

Ocean by Sebastian Meckelmann

The Radiance Sutras
Verse 136
Consider all the pain and all the pleasure
You have ever experienced
As waves on a very deep ocean which you are.

From the depths, witness those waves,
Rolling along so bravely, always changing,
Beautiful in their self-sustaining power.

Marvel that once, you identified with
Only the surface of this ocean.
Now embrace waves, depths, undersea mountains,
Out to the farthest shore.
