I saw him sit beside the sea as the sun rose from afar;
Sans material desire, sans thirst for power, sans the fear of war.
Waves from the sea fall upon the shore.
Then they return to the sea once more.
This yogi did naught but meditate on the eternal truth,
and one by one the chains of maya broke to free this youth.
Each wave may be fiercer and greater than one another.
But he who sees the truth realizes: they’re all naught but water.
To not be dragged by the tides of samsara; karma’s fruit one can’t trust.
To surrender all fears and material desires, for water washes upon the dust.
The eternal truth of the conscience shall pervade the endless sea.
The transient world shall be left behind as moksha sets him free.
