THE VERSES:

"sukhaman jhal jhal bindu jhalakai |
lakh le bhaiyyA band palake ||1||
tIsar til mein drishTi dhare |
piND tyAgi brahmAND chale ||2||

khule AkAsh bhare tArA |

dhari as shabd surat DorI |

TRANSLATION:

A scintillating point-light is sighted in the Sushumna (the centre of the Ajna Chakra) |
Behold (this point), O brother, with the curtains of your eyelids down ||1||

(The spiritual practitioner) who stills his sight in the Third Til (Sushumna, or the centre or the Ajna Chakra), |
Moves beyond his body and enters into the macrocosm. ||2||

The inner sky, studded with sparkling stars, is laid open (to such a practitioner). |
Light resembling that of the earthen lamp-flame (that is seen within) dispels the darkness (of the inner sky). ||3||

The inner horizon is illumined with incomparable moonlight. |
The dazzling divine light of the youthful (
mid-day) Sun brightens up the inside. ||4||

Melodies of myriads of sounds and the primeval unstruck sound |
Are grasped by the surat (individual soul) that has acquired the divine supernatural vision. ||5||

Catching hold of such (divine sounds) with the focussed attention (which is referred to here as the string or thread of surat), |
O soul! Travel back to your true home (
the Soundless State where God alone dwells). ||6||

I have essentially revealed, says Maharshi Mehi, the secrets (of the way to God's Abode). |
One, who serves his Guru, attains to the Supreme Soul (God) who does not need any base or support. ||7||
