about

Only one who can learn the process of nescience and that of transcendental knowledge side by side can transcend the influence of repeated birth and death and enjoy the full blessings of immortality.

lyrics

vidyāḿ cāvidyāḿ ca yas
tad vedobhayaḿ saha
avidyayā mṛtyuḿ tīrtvā
vidyayāmṛtam aśnute

Economy
is to maintain body
in healthy condition
not to get lost in our senses
and forget our real mission
of discovering
who we are
we can already see
it doesn't get us very far
when we're interested in gold
and exploiting for ourselves
try to be immortal
but we can't outrun our healths
We collect lots of riches
lots of toys with lots of switches
try to conquer death
but the tech has many glitches
but death is just like
taking off our clothes
taking a new body
and taking different roles
this doesn't effect the self-realized souls
but it pains those attached to temporary goals
the miseries here remind us we're incompatible
with temporary things that aren't so factual
degrade in the due course of time
but the soul is a never ending story in rhyme

vidyāḿ cāvidyāḿ ca yas
tad vedobhayaḿ saha
avidyayā mṛtyuḿ tīrtvā
vidyayāmṛtam aśnute

Need to remove
our disease of materialism
aggravating this disease
just strengthens the prison
of the mind
and we find our fevers increase
ignorance leads to suffering
knowledge leads to peace
knowledge of love and our conscious selves
knowledge of the Supreme
improving our healths
our current senses
are reflections of the eternal
but those senses are light
these senses are nocturnal
accepting the temporary as all in all
forgetting our friend
ignoring the call
need to be reminded
of the fact we are blinded
and that time
just cannot be rewinded
got to learn our lessons
no more second guessing
getting to the essence
not temporary impressions
lead a healthy life
keep a sound mind
take the time to seek
you will surely find
something beyond your wildest dreams
what it all really means
things are not what it seems

vidyāḿ cāvidyāḿ ca yas
tad vedobhayaḿ saha
avidyayā mṛtyuḿ tīrtvā
vidyayāmṛtam aśnute

Vidya
will rid ya of the pain
that's knowledge
with an actual gain
utilize the self
to find the highest wealth
inquiry into absolute truth
it starts with faith
but it ends with proof
realized
by persons broad minded
attained knowledge and detachment
no longer blinded
Absolute truth in three different stages
the light
the Supersoul
the supreme person
of all ages
central purpose
of all spiritual principles
is to attain loving service
to the supreme principal
the teacher
the father and the friend
we learn the art of love
in the beginning and the end
and during
all enduring
thats what is curing
until the truth is naturally alluring
getting ever attracted to the wonderful form
even fresh rainclouds no longer bring a storm

Everyone is a daughter and a son
but inside this sad material condition
we suffer on our life journey
the Supreme says, "Just turn to me"
intelligent entities walk that way
takes away the pain
stops us going insane
learning the process of nescience
along with truth makes real sense

vidyāḿ cāvidyāḿ ca yas
tad vedobhayaḿ saha
avidyayā mṛtyuḿ tīrtvā
vidyayāmṛtam aśnute
