A chapter in the book Random Reflections.

A Vision I Cannot Share.

by Niyuta

I
Meditating upon the nothingness divine,
I left my mind behind and lost my sight;
With it went the Cosmos and the Samsara.
Did I reach the gates of Nirvana?

II
How do I share the moment of ecstasy?
The vision divine; how am I to describe;
Neither my memory nor the faculties survived?
When the land of Thousand Suns became alive.

III
Once seen by my inner eyes when they opened;
Neither remained my physical body nor the Self.
Did I glimpsed my ultimate domain, or,
Have I become a joy-filled Insane?




Land of Thousand Sun is a metaphor used in the Buddhist literature-Amitabha.
Word Samsara is used as a metaphor for the physical world we all share on this planet.
