Where there is no sense of the world

Where there is no sense of the world

Where there is no sense of the world, What can one preach of true and false? Whose birth, act, form, or name is there? What boundary, where there is no town? Akha, where there is no body to begin with, The indivisible remains, as is. by Akha English version by Krishnaditya »

When one settles into a state of desirelessness

When one settles into a state of desirelessness

When one settles into a state of desirelessness, Then the self’s flame is fired up. A great man is done with deeds, When his ties of desires are truly severed. As the sun shines clear in a cloudless sky, Akha, a shining light means desires are nowhere nearby. by Akha English version by Krishna... »

What could be the Other when First is naught?

What could be the Other when First is naught?

What could be the Other when First is naught? What is to dwell when nothing is born? Viewers none, who can bear witness? Untouched by tongue, taste the nectar blessed. Akha, you will understand if you view this sensibly, It’s the possessed who grieve for father’s father. by Akha English ... »

“There is neither a sinner nor a virtuous one”

“There is neither a sinner nor a virtuous one”

“There is neither a sinner nor a virtuous one.” One who understands this is a true saint. The wheel of Time turns by its own nature; And thus sponteneous is the process of creation, dissolution. Knowing this, Akha, go and dissolve yourself; And avoid the babble of repeated trips. by Akha... »

The Essence is only as far away as the sky

The Essence is only as far away as the sky

The Essence is only as far away as the sky Where there is no dawn or dusk. Rising and setting are where there is form, That is to say the entire world. There is just a void in the place of the world, Akha, If one looks at it with the vision of a sage. by Akha English version by Krishnaditya »

Speaker of truth and the sun — these two

Speaker of truth and the sun — these two

Speaker of truth and the sun — these two — Give knowledge and light to all. As with the sunrise the owl’s power subsides, So also a malign mind dislikes the truth. Akha, one without malice speaks straight; It’s the sun’s approach which removes darkness. by Akha English ... »

Let it be whatever is in the book

Let it be whatever is in the book

Let it be whatever is in the book; What’s a ravine to one who can swim across? You just die the death of the self, Then debt-credit will stay behind. Akha, the self’s warp is gone; Now with what woof will it get woven? by Akha English version by Krishnaditya »

Far away is the Lord Supreme

Far away is the Lord Supreme

Far away is the Lord Supreme; Mind does not have entree there. A man without mind will travel far To a place no mind, speech or body can reach. Everybody sits and worships the vagaries of mind, Akha, and they do not receive the light of God. by Akha English version by Krishnaditya »

Avoid “I,” beyond body be

Avoid “I,” beyond body be

Avoid “I,” beyond body be, Swim in the Lord’s flowing stream. One who has lost “I” and “me,” Mingles easy in His sea. Akha, have insight this way, Space is in the center every which way. by Akha English version by Krishnaditya »
