“The One remains, the Many change!”
There was a discussion with Swamigal about how famous English poets like Shakespeare, Milton, Wordsworth, Tennyson had expressed the principles of Vedanta in many places! I showed Swamigal an example of how Keats, though considered to be a Romantic poet, had spoken about Adwaita.
Swamigal replied: “Keats and Shelley should not be dubbed solely as ‘Sensual Poets’ (phrase used by Him). You gave an example of Keats. Has Shelley also spoken about Adwaita?”
I started to think but could not recollect.
Swamigal gave me a clue, “How about Shelley’s work in the poem Elegy?”
I still could not recall!
Swamigal Himelf continued, enjoying the beauty of Shelley’s words:
“The One remains, the Many change
Heaven’s Light forever Shines, Earth’s shadows Fly
… Life like a dome of many-coloured Glass
Stains the White Radiance of Eternity!”
“Is there a better way to explain the Adwaitha’ Oneness and the Illusion of Dwaitha’s Divisions?!”, said Swamigal.
