Perception of the True
The misery of birth arises out of the delusion Which takes the unreal for the Real. Darkness disappears and bliss descends Upon men of clear vision and free of delusion. To those enlightened souls freed of doubt, More than earth is heaven near. Where a sense of the Real is lacking, The other five senses are useless. Wisdom is to ascertain the reality In whatever way things are presented. Those who have learnt to see the reality here Will have learnt not to come back here. Reality once searched and seized, No need to think of rebirth. Wisdom lies in realizing that unique Reality To remove the folly of rebirth. To one who does not cling, realizing what to cling, Clinging ills will not cling. Lust, wrath and delusion: Where these three are unknown, Sorrows shall not be.
