“Tell me, what are you doing now, Mind?”
Tell me, what are you doing now, Mind,
sitting there with a blind eye?
There’s someone in your own house
but you’re so oblivious
you’ve never noticed!
There’s a secret path
with a small room at the end —
and what an amazing sight inside:
caskets filled with jewels
that you never even knew about.
There’s a lot of coming and going along that path.
Go, upstairs, to the highest room,
and you’ll see the moon rising.
Premik says excitedly,
Keep your eyes open;
if you want to be awake in yoga
you must travel this secret way.
