Banter Verses 1-2
One day the Goddess sang to her lover, Bhairava:
Beloved and radiant lord of the space before birth,
Revealer of essence,
Slayer of the ignorance that binds us,
You who in play have created this universe
And permeated all forms in it
With never-ending truth,
I have been wondering…
I have been listening to the hymns of creation,
Enchanted by the verses,
Yet still I am curious.
What is this delight-filled universe
Into which we find ourselves born?
What is this mysterious awareness
Shimmering everywhere within it?
