A short sample from Mandala One, Being:

      The Self is just Being.
      It is not being this or that.
      It is just Being.
      Self-Realization is just Being.
      It is not being this or that.
      It is just Being.
      Being knows no alternative.
      The Self is just Being.


      Being never changes its nature.
      That which truly is never ceases to be.
      That which ceases never actually is.
      That which truly exists never changes.
      That which changes never truly exists.
      That which is changeless is without destruction.
      The indestructible is only
      That which is without creation.
      The unborn is the undying.
      The unchanging is alone Being.
      Being never changes its nature.

      The Self ever is
      Just as it is.
      There is no time
      When Being is altered.
      There is no time
      When you are not the Self.
      Primordial Being eternally is,
      Is what you are even now.
      Immutable Being is peace itself,
      For there is no time
      When Being is altered.
      Just as it is,
      The Self ever is.
