Will You Meet Him Through Your Ordinary Rites? (Shejdari Katha Bulchey)

Will you meet him through your ordinary rites?
He whose Form is not even most faintly drawn in the Vedas

Some say that the Ultimate Good
Is seen by none.
By Fate some others might see,
And all the Scriptures are about only that.

As the Formless Brahma he wanders in unknown lands
Without a second by His side
He wanders alone.

In meditation Mahadeb grasps a piece of him,
To what may that be compared?
Lalan says worship the Guru
And all falsehood will leave your Mind.
