Your smile graces the world with life, It is the ointment that soothes the eyes of men whose hearts can discern divine secrets. No love can last unless graced by Divine love, All shall be annihilated other than the one in love with the Divine. Everywhere You look, You grace life, It is Your gaze that bestows life in every direction. The Divine is always present and watchful, Where is the eye that can witness these manifestations in every direction? It is only the Divine’s mystic who attains liberation, As time and space are held in the beak of fate. Goyā: The Divine’s slave becomes immortal, As other than this bondage, nothing in the world has permanence.
