‘This Inverted Ashwattha Tree’

 

‘This Inverted Ashwattha tree,
With its roots above
And it’s branches below,
Is not in view to one
Rooted in this world..
The Sun illuminates not,
Nor Moon, nor Fire..
[That Source] from where
All light sets-forth
And that having reached,
The Traveler never returns.’

The Bhagavad-Gītā
