The Eight Lotuses (Asht Kanval)
This poem is from page 42-43 of the book “Furmaan Khalsa: Poems to Live By” by Siri Singh Sahib Bhai Sahib Harbhajan Singh Khalsa Yogiji:
Lord Shiva lives in the First Lotus.
Brahma’s Radiance shines in the Second Lotus.
Narayan lives at the Third Lotus,
The coiled snake’s hood is his umbrella.
In the Fourth Lotus dwells the Name of Hari.
In the Fifth Lotus, “Sat Nam” resounds.
At the Sixth Lotus lives Pritham Bhagvatee,
And the Focus of the Nam’s Meditation.
Brahma’s Radiance shines in the Seventh Lotus,
It blooms by Guru’s Grace.
In the Eighth Lotus glows the Auric Light,
The Living Flame of the Lord of Life.
One who meditates on these Eight Lotuses,
Experiences the Inner Union of Raj Yoga.
Meditating deeply, in perfect balance,
He utters the mantra “WaheGuru!”
And teaches it to others.
Oh Yogi! The men and women who share the Secrets
of the Infinite,
