Verses of Sant Dadu Dayal, the Compassionate Mystic

Verses of Sant Dadu Dayal, the Compassionate Mystic

Saints are true redeemers;
They make one see the Creator face to face.
Having themselves crossed the ocean of the world [samsara],
they take others across;
They are the saviours of beings.
Dyed in the colour of the Supreme Lord,
They have the blameless Name as their support.
Always truthful, disciplined, blissful and contented,
Their wisdom and reach knows no bounds.
In eternal love, in eternal ecstasy,
In eternal company with the essential Truth;
In eternal union, in eternal life,
In eternal knowledge and contemplation
are they absorbed.
Crown jewel of all, bestower of bliss to all,
They are rare in this world.
They are the swans, the dwellers of the ocean of bliss,
Who come for the good of others, O Dadu.

SatyaRaam! [Sacred Name of God, the Lord of Spirits, The Timeless, Formless Ocean of Love)
