SONNETS OF AWAKENING
If by devil ego ghost you're haunted
Don't worry, just struggle on undaunted.
That phantom can be quickly laid to rest,
Enquiry and surrender are the best
Means for ending this malevolent pest,
Who chatters ceaselessly without due rest.
Ego will be slain through Guru's grace,
To be rid of soon without any trace.
Ego ghost hides our bright Sun of Self alas,
Self's shining light lies clouded by a mass
Of vain vasanas which have to die,
Then all is well and peace at last is nigh.
We exorcise grim ego ghost from the heart,
To awaken before death, when we duly depart.
