FROM ALAN JACOBS ADVAITA VEDANTA PAGE
SONNETS OF EXPERIENCE
While we wait quietly in our Guru's tigers jaws,
We'll soon discover that he takes plenty of time,
Because he follows his own wise sagacious laws.
When we're prepared, ready to know the the sublime,
He'll lead us into our spiritual heart one blessed day,
When the nadis are well attuned to bear the power,
Of pure consciousness awareness' auspicious way,
To know 'That' each second and moment every hour.
Then if earnestly to our Self we give attention,
Vasanas and latent tendencies will be destroyed,
No longer will ego mind annoy us by their retention,
And joy of sat chit ananda be no longer cloyed.
So don't be troubled by being clasped in the tigers jaws,
Just be patient and keep still between his paws and claws.
