and as an embryo by the amnion, so is this enveloped by that.'

Weekly Poem

37. THE VEDANTIC HILL

I stand on the heights of the Vedantic hill.
I entered the heart of Bhuma or the Infinite Wisdom.
Master of destiny am I.
No evil, no human element, no pain, no sorrow is here.
there is infinite good, perfection and freedom,
Perennial joy, supreme peace and sweet harmony,
It is the land of fullness, happiness and felicity.
The law of cause and effect does not operate here.
There is neither sunrise nor sunset here,
It is all eternal sunshine and effulgence.
There is no smell of mind, egoism or intellect here.
The senses are burnt to ashes.
Pure consciousness reigns supreme.
There is neither 'I' nor 'you' nor 'he',
Neither 'here' nor 'there' neither 'today' nor 'yesterday'.
It is an abode of Ananda Ghana, Vijnana Ghana, Prajnana Ghana.

a) Vedanta - 'End of Vedas', teaching of Non-Duality Oneness
b) Ananda Ghana, Vijnana Ghana, Prajnana Gnana -
Massive Bliss, Incredible Realization, Awesome Knowledge.
