Hymn to The Seeker (fragment)

The Life Power
came into being
through the Backbone
and by the Tongue

The sight of the Eyes
the hearing of the Ears
and the breathing of air through the Nose
they transmit to the Backbone
which brings forth every Decision

Lo, every Word came into being
through sight of the Eyes
and the command by the Tongue
Thus all witnessing faculties were made
and all Qualities determined

Justice is done to him who does what is Loved
and punishment to him who does what is Hated.

Thus Life is given to the peaceful
and Death is given to the criminal
according to this Word which is devised within the Backbone
and comes forth by the Tongue
and creates the performance of Everything.
