Calcutta nr. 314
From the Nadir of the earthly globe up to the Zenith of Saturn
I made solution of all the problems of heaven
I escaped from the bondage of all trickery & deceit
All obstacles were removed but not the bondage of Destiny
Up from Earth's Centre through the Seventh Gate
I rose, and on the Throne of Saturn sate,
And many a Knot unravel'd by the Road;
But not the Master-knot of Human Fate.
From the Nadir of the earthly globe, up to the Zenith of Saturn
I solved all the problems of heaven;
I escaped from the bondage of all trickery and deceit.
All obstacles were removed save only the Bond of Fate.
From the nadir of earth to the zenith of Saturn on high,
All doubts have I solved and all problems of earth and of sky;
The toils of deceit and imposture o'ervaulted have I
And all barriers removed, save that only of "Needs must thou die."
Up from Earth's center e'en to Saturn's throne,
I solved all problems of the Heavenly zone ;
From bonds of fraud and artifice leaped out.
And every barrier burst save Death's alone.
