No birth, no death

​Joyous verses from the long Sanskrit chant of Lord Shankara (Shankaracharya):

No birth, no death, no caste have I;

Father, mother, have I none.

I am He, I am He; Blessed Spirit, I am He!

Mind, nor intellect, nor ego, chitta;*

Sky nor Earth nor metals am I.

I am He, I am He; Blessed Spirit, I am He!

Beyond the flights of fancy, formless am I.

Permeating all limbs of life;

Bondage I do not fear, I am free, ever free,

I am He, I am He; Blessed Spirit, I am He!

*Feeling or emotion: one of the elemental disturbances of the mind stuff that prevents one-pointed concentration on Spirit.
