I do not know Shiva; how can I speak of Him?
I do not know Shiva; how can I worship Him?
I , myself, am Shiva, the primal Essence of everything;
My nature, like the sky, remains ever the same.
I am the Essence, the all-pervading Essence;
I have no form of -my own.
I'm beyond the division of subject and object;
How could I possibly be an object to myself?
There's no such thing as an infinite form;
The infinite Reality has no form of Its own.
The one Self, the supreme Reality,
Neither creates, nor sustains, nor destroys anything.
(The Avadhuta Gita)
