about

Everything animate or inanimate that is within the universe is controlled and owned by the Lord. One should therefore accept only those things necessary for himself, which are set aside as his quota, and one should not accept other things, knowing well to whom they belong.

lyrics

Inside and outside of our conception
is everything owned by the one giving direction
we're energetic parts
of the source of all energy
The creator of art
science and synergy
earth, water, fire, air,
ether, and the mind,
intelligence, false ego and all that we can find
gifts given for our living while we're in this atmosphere
but we're driven to not giving respect coz of greed and fear
explicit exploitation
elicits confrontation
it happens through the ages
coz we ignore the sages
false sense of ownership
leads to an iron grip
suffering from attachment
to what we've only lent
renting an apartment
that soon we'll have to leave
paying with the karma
we're destined to receive
but we're born fully naked
and we die with nothing
avoid time wasted
just strive for loving

īśāvāsyam idam sarvaḿ
yat kiñca jagatyāḿ jagat
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā
mā gṛdhaḥ kasya svid dhanam

polluted water sources
from detrimental forces
desertification
of a fertile nation
disturbing the natural system
provided to maintain
making us more distant
inconsistent and insane
our sensory ability incomplete
what to speak of our tendency to cheat
ourselves and others, so illusion covers
maya smothers, reality colors
the plans of mice and men are laid
but the good thing when mistakes are made
they can be rectified when we abide
by wisdom in all areas of life
like
social, political,
global, analytical
international or even interplanetary
they'll be right once we are sanitary
in our minds and our hearts
that's where it starts

īśāvāsyam idam sarvaḿ
yat kiñca jagatyāḿ jagat
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā
mā gṛdhaḥ kasya svid dhanam

responsibility comes with human life
we have the ability to reduce strife
offer everything up to the one most high
then distribute the mercy far and wide

īśāvāsyam idam sarvaḿ
yat kiñca jagatyāḿ jagat
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā
mā gṛdhaḥ kasya svid dhanam
