O this beauty of the universe!
How do You, O God, continue to create it?
What burst of ecstasy
Allows You to manifest Your being?
Some say You take fancy in the play of form.
I understand You need participants like me
In Your perpetual play of creation.
Dadu (1544–1603) was a Hindu guru in Rajasthan, India. His group of followers became known as the Dadu-panth. Many of Dadu’s words refer to natural joy and raising all earthly things to a divine status.
