AT THE LOTUS FEET OF SRI SANKARA
O Pilgrim! Thou hast scaled heights
Inaccessible in philosophical flights
And breathed into myriads of souls,
The breath recuperative of sacred vows.
Thou art indeed the commentator immortal
That paved path to deliverance of mortals
Thro’ thy Bhashya on terse aphorisms
And the naive utterance of the Upanishads.
The ’Lord’s song thou hast immortalized
Making the note ever sweet and harmonious
By the play of thy hand on the string of Advaita
Proclaiming between man and his Creator abheda.
