Secular Divinity of Sound

Ye who have seen beyond the walls of the cave,

A captivating piece of music recently crossed my path and resonated on a level that eluded linguistic trappings.  Just had to share this soothing instrumental with my homeys.  In homage to Holmes, I also did some reconnaissance and the following translation turned up. Turns out that this is actually a devotional piece written in the 15th Century by Narsinh Mehta.  The word “Vaishnav” is translated as a devotee of Vishnu.  For those who may be uncomfortable with assigning intelligence to the infinite and eternal energy from which all things proceed, replace “Vaishnav” with “True Humanist” and voila, any perturbations experienced in the mind of a 3D dweller is rather easily resolved. I hope you enjoy the piece.

Vaishnav Jan

One who is a Vaishnav (or True Humanist)

Knows the pain of others

Does good to others

Without letting pride enter his mind.

 

A Vaishnav (True Humanist), Tolerates and praises the entire world.

Does not speak ill of others

Keeps his promises, actions and thoughts pure

Your mother is blessed indeed.

 

A Vaishnav (True Humanist) sees everything equally, rejects greed and avarice

Respects women as he respects his own mother

Though his tongue may tire he will utter no untruth

Never touches the property of others.

 

A Vaishnav (True Humanist) does not succumb to worldly attachments

He has renounced lust of all types and anger

The poet Narsi will like to see such a person by whose virtue,

The entire family gets salvation.

    Excellent H3nry. Now how can Tubularsock go about his ranting at the shadows on the cave wall with this tune in his head? Damn!

      After all the stress men like you undertake for those who are oblivious to the world in which they live my friend, I don’t think the shadows will mind if you go easy on them for a day or two.
