Life is but a train of spirits
that march in their bodily hold,
from spirited childhood to wise age old;
Life after life, birth after birth,
a continuous train
on the spiritual terrain!
Death is that vital foe,
So essential for the spiritual go,
and rest awhile from this sensual world;
to be born yet again and again, life after life,
ascend the spiritual plane,
till that light of heaven is attained!
