A Group of Indian Epigrams: From the ‘Garland of Questions and Answers’

Translation of Charles Rockwell Lanman, editor

Q.WHAT lack I yet? what for my soul remaineth

To know, that all these longings then may cease?

A.Salvation, wherein simplest soul attaineth

The knowledge that doth end in perfect peace.

Q.What must I know, the which when comprehending,

Their secret thought from all the worlds I wrest?

A.On all-embracing Brahm thy spirit bending,

That know, Prime Form of Being, Manifest.
