Our body has senses physical
Designed for experiences dual
If I get pricked by a pin
Can I avoid feeling pain?
Cool breeze on a muggy evening
So pleasing and comforting
But sense experiences do not last
Here now, gone moment next
Why want pleasure, avoid pain
Knowing they won’t remain?
Dual reality of senses inevitable
But why have attachment mental?
Desire for pleasure, state painless
Keeps one stuck to lives endless
If no desire at the moment of dying
No need to return to life repeating
One liberated from desires while living
Is naturally also liberated after dying
One not believing in birth after death
Steady desireless mind, goal of worth
Going beyond bodily identity limited
Discarding doership, duality associated
Gunas are real doer is self-realisation
Merging with the Singular is liberation
