Your way of knowing is a private herb garden

by Lalla

English version by Coleman Barks
Original Language Kashmiri

Your way of knowing is a private herb garden.
Enclose it with a hedge of meditation,
and self-discipline, and helpfulness to others.

Then everything you've done before
will be brought as a sacrifice
to the mother goddess.

And each day, as you eat the herbs,
your garden grows more bare and empty.


-- from Naked Song, by Lalla / Translated by Coleman Barks
Poetry Chaikhana | Lalla - Your way of knowing is a private herb garden
