My companion told me He would return
and then left.
But He did not return till today.

With jingling lyre strings,
He told me to abandon the crooked path
and search for the straight path.

Yet, I wandered about endlessly
forgetting the Supreme Desideratum.
I did not move on that illuminated straight path
in the first place.
Attachments prompted and pulled me.
I forgot the essence of the instruction conveyed to me
to search the truth.


Today light shines forth from all sides
telling me to closely remain on the right path.
