Neodämmeringing wet


From delusion lead me to truth
From darkness lead me to light
From death lead me to immortality.

He who knows both knowledge and action,
with action overcomes death
and with knowledge reaches immortality.

In him are woven the sky and the earth
and all the regions of the air,
and in him rest the mind
and all the powers of life.
Know him as the ONE
and leave aside all other words.
He is the bridge of immortality.

Beyond the senses is the mind,
and beyond the mind is reason, its essence.
Beyond reason is the Spirit in man,
and beyond this is the Spirit of the Universe,
the evolver of all.

When the five senses and the mind are still,
and reason itself rests in silence,
then begins the Path supreme.

And when he is seen in his immanence and transcendence,
then the ties that have bound the heart are unloosenend,
the doubts of the mind vanish,
and the law of Karma works no more.

Don Davis has put up this translation of the choral part of Neodämmerung that I was so squishy over.

It's beautiful, and while not technically a spoiler, says a lot about the third part of Neo's journey to me.

You can go read it side by side with the original Sanskrit at Don Davis' site.
Thanks Tyler.

Please keep any discussion on this in the abstract/speculative sense please. And don't bring any outside information in. If you want to talk about what the words above say to you, that's fine, but don't be using them to confirm spoilery info from other sources and blabbing that out here.

Chicks, there's an MP3 of it on the left side of the linked page on Mr. Davis' site.
I believe it's being sung in Sanskrit.

Thanks ladies, I don't have media at work but when I get home I'll be sure to listen to it.
