I have never partaken of wine
But still I am unconscious.
I have seen splendour in these rags
(saffron robes of a sannyasi)
The ruins which are my house
Seem like a sick man's place.
My heart is so huge that the seven seas
And even the sun and moon find a place in it.
Do not ask me what books I have read
For I have read not the Bible,
The Puranas nor the Koran.
Still I am well versed in them.
Yes, I have gained experience
by going through life.
