Lotus Seed Poem: 5

One day on a mountain ridge
Above a vast plain
I saw your Master streaming across the sky.

The next day I learned
You had left your body.

Later, as I wailed in your house
Not knowing how to go on
Living without you,
You appeared bursting with laughter:

You thought I died!
Now I am everywhere!

Now there is no place where you are not.
Since you put the holy bread
Of the mantra on my tongue
All I have to do is repeat the Name
And you are there:
Sublime flame brilliant with bliss.
