Essence Supreme of Devotion

Better than hymns of praise
Is repetition of the Name;
Better low-voiced than loud, but best of all
Is meditation in the mind.

Better than spells of meditation
Is one continuous current,
Steady as a stream,
Or downward flow of oil.

Better than viewing Him as Other,
Indeed the noblest attitude of all,
Is to hold Him as the ‘I’ within,
The very ‘I’.

Abidance in pure being
Transcending thought through love
Intense Is the very essence
Of supreme devotion.
