What Is ‘Beauty’?

The worldly only
cling to the beautiful.

— Shilashanti
(Part 1)

The so-called ‘beautiful’ is so
only when perceived
under certain conditions
of space and time.

When seen too far without,
it is only a blur.
When seen too near within,
it is only fluctuating particles.

When seen too soon,
it is only a forming form.
When seen too late,
it is only a deforming form.

The spiritual simply
become the wonderful.

— Shilashanti
