I am That

I am That

I am that,

That witness,

From immemorial,

The observer,

Perceptible, Present

But unknown,

I am that within you,

I, pervades all,

I prevail death,

Open eyes in another womb.

And Yet I remain I.

Veiled by the fruits of past,

I am that the devout seeks,

I am what is sought by

Renunciants of ochre robes.

I am that Buddha found,

The faithful pray for.

Ever present, undying,

Unassailable, free of chains.

I am that I am,

Truth, consciousness, bliss.
