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….
The Radiance Sutras
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.
