Words of Wisdom - A Poem by Bhartruhari



Blessed are those who live in seclusion meditating on Brahman, the Supreme Light, while birds devoid of fear perch on their laps and drink the tear-drops of bliss; while our life is fast ebbing away in the excitement of revelry in palatial mansions or on the banks of refreshing pools or in pleasure-gardens, all created and brooded over by imagination.
