Song of the Soul


I found this poem the other day and I really liked it. It was in Iyengar’s “Light on Yoga”. Hope you enjoy it!

Song of the Soul

“I am neither ego nor reason, I am neither mind nor thought,
I cannot be heard nor cast into words, nor by smell nor sight ever caught:
In light and wind I am not found, nor yet in earth and sky-
Consciousness and joy incarnate, Bliss of the Blissful am I…

I cast aside hatred and passion, I conquered delusion and greed;
No touch of pride caressed me, so envy never did breed:
Beyond all faiths, past reach of wealth, past feedom, past desire,
Consciousness and joy am I, and Bliss is my attire…

Neither knowable, knowledge, nor knower am I, formless is my form,
I dwell within the senses but they are not my home:
Ever serenely balanced, I am neither free nor bound-
Consciousness and joy am I, and Bliss is where I am found.”

I also wrote the DER (daily expedition report) yesterday. You can find it and pictures here. Enjoy!
