(Hymn to Shiva, as Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai
Power of all Powers! Oh, fill and flood my being;
O Sun Eternal, Whelm me in Thy Light.
Vision itself need ask no eyes for seeing,
And boundless Life no wings to mount the height.
I am Thy Light, by mortal lamp enshrouded,
The Bliss, beyond all shifting joys and pains;
Above their glooms and gleams is Peace unclouded.
Shatter the lamp; the Light, the Light remains.
Father of Spirits, Love forever burning!
Burn Thou all forms that hold my life from Thee;
Lost in my selfhood, to Thyself returning,
Find Thou Thine own, and my Eternity.
