Sri Aurobindo

The Bliss of Brahman

Back to

I have become a foam-white sea of bliss,
        I am a curling wave of God's delight,
        A shapeless flow of happy passionate light,
A whirlpool of the streams of Paradise.

I am a cup of His felicities,
        A thunderblast of His golden ecstasy's might,
        A fire of joy upon creation's height,
I am His rapture's wonderful abyss.

I am drunken with the glory of the Lord,
        I am vanquished by the beauty of the Unborn;
        I have looked, alive, upon the Eternal's face.

My mind is cloven by His radiant sword,
        My heart by His beatific touch is torn;
        My life is a meteor-dust of His flaming Grace.
