On meeting you I have experienced the Immeasurable, The genuine feeling of totality And the eternal sense of release As the fulfilment of all longings And desires, I have nothing more to achieve. Your silence has given me this experience. You have watched me grow, Now in silence, I too stand Before you Not feeling any pleasure or pain. You have made me actionless Therefore I do not move And I cannot be moved There is no urge left within me. I am contented Just as you are. After a long wait I met you last night At the close of my life’s seventy-fifth year.
