Example text

The sea leaps into the sky and cries aloud. Without him here, what shall I say? how shall I survive? indd 51 12/10/13 9:56 AM What Her Mother Said O women, you too have daughters and have brought them up. How can I tell you about my poor girl? She talks of the conch shell, she talks of the wheel, and she talks, night and day, of the basil in his hair, what shall I do? indd 52 12/10/13 9:56 AM You roam the seas the mountains, the skies, you touch them lightly, cold north wind! Night and day, lit by alternate lamps of sun and moon, like us you wander sleepless: are you also craving, since the time time began, for a glimpse of our lord of the mighty wheel?

O Nourisher, sole Seer, judge of the dead, O sun, offspring of the Father of Creatures, fan out your rays, draw up luster. That most splendrous form, yours— I would see—that is— the I am. 17. Animate breath is undying but the body ends in cinder. Om! Oh volition, remember, remember that which was done. Remember that which was done. 18. O Fire, knower of every creature’s breath, take us along the good road, far from deviant evil. We offer you precious verse. indd 23 [ 23 ] 12/10/13 9:56 AM Īśa Upaniṣad I ndia’s one hundred and eight Upaniṣads are an enormous compendium of cosmic speculation, folklore, mystical insight, and homespun humor.

Kāmadeva, unite me to him soon. indd 42 12/10/13 9:56 AM I dedicated my swelling breasts to the lord who holds the conch and flaming discus. If there is even a whisper of giving me to a mortal, I shall not live. O Manmatha, would you permit a roving jackal to sniff and eat the sacrificial food the Brahmins offer to celestial gods? indd 43 [ 43 ] 12/10/13 9:56 AM Learned Brahmins chanted Vedic mantras, placed green dharba grass around the sacrificial fire lit with twigs. The lord of great prowess, strong as a raging elephant, took my hand, we walked around the fire— I dreamt this dream, my friend.
