The Vedic Hymn to Time

 

Time is a horse that moves with seven rays,

with a thousand eyes, undecaying,

who projects a manifold seed.

Him the seers mount, illumined in mind.

His wheels are all the worlds.

 

Time moves seven wheels.

He has seven mouths, whose center is immortal and undecaying.

He anoints himself with all these worlds.  He moves as the first of the Gods.

 

A full vessel is set in time.

May we who live see his manifold forms.

He faces all the worlds, who, the seers say,

is time

in the supreme

void.  He gathered all the worlds together.

He encompasses all the universe.

As their father, he became their son,

apart from whom there is no other light.

Some of the posts/articles here are unedited first drafts. I have found that it's more important (for me) to just get the words out and clean up the errors later. Slowly I am beginning to edit what I've written and present the material in a more polished form. Some day, I hope to publish much of this material in print (rather than virtual). Of course, the way the planets have been spinning around lately, that may have become an impossible dream?
