Akho : Speaker of Truth and the Sun

For more about the Gujarati poet and mystic Akho Bhagat, see this earlier post.

Speaker of truth and the sun — these two —
Give knowledge and light to all.
As with the sunrise the owl’s power subsides,
So also a malign mind dislikes the truth.
Akho, one without malice speaks straight;
It’s the sun’s approach which removes darkness.

Translation Krishnaditya
