Invocation to Brahma


parama sukhadam

kevalam gyanamurtim

dwandwateetam gagana sadrishyam

tatwamashyadi lakshyam

ekam nityam bimala machalam

sarvadhay sakshibutam

bhawaateetam triguna rahitam

sadgurum tam namami

Full of bliss

Giving joy transcendent

Of higher knowledge,

The abode

Dual no more,

Clear as the heavens

Known to all as Thou Art That

He is pure,

Permanent, unmoving

The everlasting seer of all

Far, far beyond qualities and thought

Guru Lord I bow to Thee
