High on Waves

Swami Sivananda Saraswati

I have realised the identity
Of individual soul and supreme soul.
Sat-chit-ananda is my essential nature.
My mind is withdrawn from all external objects,
I am deeply God-intoxicated.
All sorrow and pain and fear have vanished,
I am ever peaceful and joyful.
I am truth, pure consciousness and bliss,
I shine forth as a divine flame
In all living beings.
I am tasting the bliss of the eternal,
I have attained the goal of life.
In that Brahman am I!
That Brahman who is Satchidananda,
Who is the indweller and inner ruler,
Who is the womb of the Vedas,
Who is the creator of this universe.
Who is the substratum for everything.
Who gives light to the intellect,
Who is hiding himself in all form,
Who is adored by the Rishis,
Whom the Vedas proclaim,
Whom the yogins wish to attain in samadhi,
Who is terror to Indra and Agni,
Who is sweet to the disciplined yogi,
That Brahman verily am I.
