How beautiful are bees. Devine, magical, perfect.
In the 8th century AC the
buddhist tantra master and poet Saraha wrote of bees and honey. Throughout ancient India honey was worshiped in many scriptures
The Royal Song .
Forsaking bliss the fool roams abroad,
Hoping for mundane pleasure;
Your mouth is full of honey now,
Swallow it while you may!
Fools attempt to avoid their suffering,
The wise enact their pain.
Drink the cup of sky-nectar
While others hunger for outward appearances.
The bee knows from birth
That flowers are the source of honey;
How can the fool know
That samsara and nirvana are one
Though the fragrance of a flower cannot be touched,
‘tis all pervasive and at once perceptible.
So by un- patterned being- in- itself,
recognize the round of mystic circles.
Goddess of the sun fooling around!
