Look, there's never even been a you or an I;
All talk about family or caste is untrue.
Truly, I'm Shiva, the one supreme Self;
How, then, should I worship? To whom should I bow?

The distinction between Guru and disciple proves illusory;
The Guru's instruction proves illusory as well.
Truly, I'm Shiva, the one supreme Self;
How, then, should I worship? To whom should I bow?

The division between bodies is only imagined;
The division between places is only imagined.
Truly, I'm Shiva, the one supreme Self.
How, then, should I worship? To whom should I bow?

~ Dattatreya's Song of the Avadhut (6.22-24)
