The Praise of God
With alpha begins all alphabets; And the world with the first Bagavan. Of what avail is learning if one worships not The holy feet of Pure Intelligence? Long life on earth is theirs who reach The glorious feet of Him who walked on flowers. No evil will befall those who reach the feet Of the One beyond likes and dislikes. The twin deeds of dark illusion do not affect those Who delight meaningfully in Lord's praise. Long life is theirs who tread the path of Him Who conquered the five senses. They alone escape from sorrows who take refuge In the feet of Him beyond compare. None can swim the sea of births, but those united To the feet of that Being, a sea of virtue. Depraved, senseless and worthless is the head Unbowed at the feet of Him with eight qualities. The ocean of births can be crossed by none other than Those who reach the feet of the Lord.
