Allama Prabhu : For all their search

In this short poem, perhaps we recognise ourselves as the seekers who, in spite of all our efforts, overlook the obvious Truth. For more about Allama Prabhu, see this post.

For all their search
     they cannot see
     the image in the mirror.

It blazes in the circles
     between the eyebrows.
     Who knows this
     has the Lord.

Translation A. K. Ramanujan
