THE GODDESS: a Hymnal
(the provisional translation into English)Lada Lethe Lalita al-Lat
1. [The Other]
Awake! I am not the one and the many –
the essence of Me is unquantifiable;
I am not a mother or a virgin –
verily, I am the other to all;
for the other deity – the nameless faith
of those who don't pray for any;
already having all, the rich in spirit
are flying out of exuberance to freedom.
.........! Allow turn to Thee,
a feeling, speech and hearing grant me,
let approach the azure visage,
like a bird having soared up at the clouds,
not high hovers hunting down an aim,
nor does flap wings having heard a whisper of snakes,
but as a pigeon rushed at height,
has been circling - seeking a sky stream.
Devi, Thea, Inkosazana, Xi-wang-mu, al-Lat, Ya-nebya ...
What are wonderful names, but it's solely part,
they have each a portion of Thy secret, –

than with Thy womanhood.

then the canticle flowed on the souls were overcome by ardour.
But no, it's only the presence sign the other.
The path to Thee another: a way of life,
the experience's flow, consciousness of Thee.
Thou art not a creature and didn't need it,
Thou art the creator and mistress
exclusively by own affording.
Being neither a part nor the wholeness of all
Thou can invest with a variform.
It may from nothingness a good creation
or the return of worlds into nonexistence.
In Thy powers becoming nothing Thyself.
With a reminder of all truths
Thou descend to all people.
Thou come to every nation, in every home,
sometimes in the image of a beloved and loving wife
or a charming girlfriend,
sometimes as a careful mother, a sister, or an orphan.
And now Thy dominion is capable
to join the shoreless with a finite.
Tho' the fullness of the humanity's salvation
occurs, when a masculine body
partook in Her pilgrimage on the earth.

Henceforth he only thought of One
Who appears abloom at the radiant sky
and warms the reaching palms.
When Krishna has got virility mid grasses of Vrindavan,
Radha appeared to him as a shepherdess.

A blessed amorousness settled into the hearts of ones
who sees the exaltation of the life in Radha,
the abode of their thoughts,
the aim and the source of feelings.
Thou art borne in mind in the image of Mary,
the messenger Herself was chosen
in the person of beloved son Yeshua.
Was Thou with him as he got out to the men,

and a word of comfort in an evil hour
is able of the nature of the righteous ones
to exalt through all potential and mere worlds
during an instant of the climax merging.
Though remember, endowed with passion
thou not for a litter's infinity,
to which has reduced human story.
Forsake a movement of crowd quickly
and thou will see the freshness tide,
a shallop on it all the feelings.
Cast off from the immobile pier,
and as good wind I shall be Self.
Needn't argue by words,
no need a barren husk.
Abandon the ritual art
for the artificial hearts.
Or it doesn't really humble spirit
whereby nor the donation to the needy,
warmth for the ailing,
openness to the neighbour.
Vidya, Torah, Quran and some more
thousands of thousands words.
Yet what is the use of it for them
who is enemy of the living speeches, -
their trust and prayer are vain.
Any scripture and prophet to their term;
will pass time for the body of Her
who will come and comfort us.
At present there isn't a ban on the meat,
and what is harmful - the man knows himself.
Nowadays there are no more bans, -

Isn't really the body of bodies with Thee,
which approached the whole world to Itself?
The devotees will follow the Supreme
onto the brink of all eventual.

will go without thought of reward,
will go into perdition in Thy behalf.
And if only once to bathe in the ocean
cool, warm and shoreless
of Thy celestial beauty.
The time is ripe for the descent
the Goddess righteous among the humankind
in the chastest immediate appearance,
unlike it all things formerly are only precursory.
The world has become able to hear a feminine voice;
is ready to accept Thee with spirit
one who waits and believes in,
that there's in the world perfection.
Had strike the hour on trial.
One wants a miracle and sign like in old days.
But isn't it whether the Crown of heaven
glistering with ice above the universe,
shimmering iridescence Herself with Oneself,
will descend timely to us, –
is a genuine miracle of miracles?
If only the trust wouldn't left us ...
The matter repeats that the all is the one,
the oneness of all is god;
to be a part of the all is not freedom,
freedom is to be all.
The spirit's utterance: there's the other to all,
the divine is solely it;
to embrace the all is not freedom,
freedom is beyond the cause of the all.
I am mistress of the ice castle,
an eternity here is only a blink.
I am childless and without a darling,
nor a sister and nor a parent.
If love Me, - adopting thee
onto my snow-white lap.
Does not belong to all soulless world
will be the chastest oblivion with Me.
Love with Thee is like the rivers
wafting along towards oceans,
purling nights and days,
flying from mountains into overflows,
not drying up in the glow,
nor freezing up in the cold,
with the mouths, have been kissing abysses,
again with the sources, have been conceiving the brooks...
