“I Am a Lie”: A Sustained Failure in Translation
Our UU Sources statement tells us that "The living tradition we share draws from many sources," then goes on to say that the very first of these Sources is "Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life." That's quite a mouthful! Over a thousand years ago, one poet in India seems to have had his own mouthful of such "direct experience." Let's share its flavor, and address the role of mystical experience in our religious lives.
