the life of all that lives

the song of God

excerpt from the Bhagavad Gita

I am the taste of water.
I am the light of the Sun and Moon.
I am the original fragrance of the Earth.
I am the heat in fire.
I am the life of all that lives.
Of lights I am the radiant Sun.
Among the stars I am the Moon.
Of the bodies of water I am the Ocean.
Of immovable things I am the Himalayas.
Of trees I am the Banyan.
Of weapons, I am the thunderbolt.
Among the beasts I am the lion.
Of purifiers I am the wind.
Of fishes I am the shark.
Of flowing rivers I am the Ganges.
Of secret things I am silence.
Know that all opulent, beautiful ,
and glorious creations spring from but a spark of my splendor.
