Nivedano…

(Drumbeat)

(Gibberish)

Nivedano…

(Drumbeat)

blue spiral

Be silent.
Close your eyes,
and feel your body to be completely frozen.
Look inwards with absolute urgency.
Deeper and deeper,
until you reach the source of your very being.
It is very close – just one step  and you are the buddha.
Such a beautiful evening,
and the dancing rains rejoicing in your silence,
rejoicing in your samadhi.
These cloud buddhas have come from so far away,
don’t let them down.
Deeper and deeper, there is no need to fear.
It is your own space and it is your own birthright
to be a buddha.
To make it absolutely clear
that you are not the body, nor the mind,
but just a witness,

Nivedano…

(Drumbeat)

Relax, and just be a witness.

This witnessing is another name of the buddha.
Witnessing makes you an empty mirror,
reflecting everything without getting identified.
And this is the miracle of meditation;
it gives you freedom, it gives you the beyond.
Gather the experience, the fragrance,
because the time is close that you will be called back.
Taste the nectar, the eternally running stream of your life,
let it sink deep in your every fiber,
because it is going to be a twenty-four hour lifestyle.
Living or dead, you have to remain as a buddha.

Nivedano…

(Drumbeat)

Come back, but come back as a buddha with a samadhi,
with a feel of the nectar.
Sit down for a few moments,
just to recollect the experience
of where you have been,
what you have been.
Every day it has to become deeper and deeper.

Okay, Maneesha?

Yes, Beloved Master.

Can we celebrate the buddhas?

Yes, Beloved Master.
