You have overcome attachment with renunciation, aversion with love, and indifference with wisdom.
Lovely yet calming, bright but not blinding, gentle yet strong —who would not be inspired just to see You?
Just to hear You brings joy; just to look upon You calms the heart. Your speech refreshes and Your teaching frees.
To praise You removes faults, to remember You brings joy, to follow You gives understanding, to know You purifies the heart.
To approach You brings good fortune, to serve You gives wisdom, to honor You dispels fear, to serve You bestows success.
— Selected Verses from the Śatapañcāśatka of Mātṛceṭa
