day and by nigh, none so glorious so bright hagavat, the source of all spiritual light.

Lere is one alone unchanging,

-DHAMMAPADA, 587.

Trom whose face the darkness fies,

High-born, laminously beaming,

Uncompared, beyond comprise

Bhagavat, the far-secing,

Bhagara', the very wise ---PARAVANA SUTTA.

Ther is now re in all the world

That his reason has not been;

Not a fact whereof the Master

Has not pierced the origin

He will end the doubter's questions,
If they will but let him in

Namaççakyamunaye thathāgatāya, arkate, samyak

sambuddhāya.

Bright shineth the sun in his splendour by day

And bright the moon's radiance by night,
Bright shineth the hero in battle array,

And the sage in his thought shineth bright

But by day and by night, none so glorious so bright

As Bhagavat, the source of all spiritual light.

—DHAMMAPADA, 387.

There is one alone unchanging,

From whose face the darkness flies,

High-born, luminously beaming,

Uncompared, beyond comprise

Bhagavat, the far-seeing,

Bhagavat, the very wise.-PARAYANA SUTTA.

There is nowhere in all the world

That his reason has not been;

Not a fact whereof the Master
Has not pierced the origin.

He will end the doubter's questions,
If they will but let him in -Ibid.

Dedicated

to

All whose hearts are vast like the sea
And full of compassion and love;

Whose thoughts, like the sweet Philomel,
Soar high and lofty for ever;

Who, regardless of consequences,

Use their reason to distinguish

What is true from what is untrue;

Who work with zeal to share with all

The easy path.of salvation

Revealed by Him who read aright

The problem of origination.
