  • Translation:

    In the realm of wisdom, spiritual wisdom reigns supreme.

    There, the sound current of the Naad resounds, amid the sounds and sights of bliss.

    In the realm of humility, the word is beauty.

    There, forms of incomparable beauty are fashioned.

    These things cannot be described.

    One who tries to speak of these shall regret the attempt.

    There, the intuition, intellect, mind, and understanding are shaped.

    There, the consciousness of the spiritual warriors,

    And the Siddhas, the beings of spiritual perfection, are shaped.
