Dancing along the galaxies, the universe at his mercy
For the dance which incites the ring of life
Must proceed for life to circle
He whom provides platform to universe's root,
Cannot help but extinguish his ignorance, the lord's dance
Relinquishes his snare of illusion
Bearing neither birth nor death, he is forever the creator and destroyer,
the preserver and concealer, the "omnipresent” revealer.
Evil cannot escape the rhythmic tunes of his actions, each sign of movement twitches on the heart of nature, awakening the unborn,
Awakening those from the far ends of the world,
Awakening those from the next world, and the next….and the next,
until finally awakening those at the summit of eternity
The sun whose energy transcends throughout the world bears the energy of the lord himself, for the end to this showpiece will ultimately be the end of life as we know it.
