I have no name…

Came across this haunting verse by Jiddu Krishnamurti

I have no name,
I am as the fresh breeze of the mountains.
I have no shelter;
I am as the wandering waters.
I have no sanctuary, like the dark gods;
Nor am I in the shadow of deep temples.
I have no sacred books;
Nor am I well-seasoned in tradition.
I am not in the incense mounting on the high altars,
nor in the pomp of ceremonies.
I am neither in the graven image,
nor in the rich chant of a melodious voice.
I am not bound by theories,
nor corrupted by beliefs.
I am not held in the bondage of religions,
nor in the pious agony of their priests.
I am not entrapped by philosophies,
nor held in the power of their sects.
I am neither low nor high,
I am the worshipper and the worshipped.
I am free.
My song is the song of the river calling for the open seas, wandering, wandering,
I am Life.
I have no name,
I am as the fresh breeze of the mountains.

~Jiddu Krishnamurti
