પૂજ્ય ભવાનીશંકર વ્યાસને
જેમણે પરકીયાનો અનુરાગ લગાડયો
If what you read herein seem not for you designed,
may you at least have met the mind within this mind,
May this unyielded book at least as much convey
as we grant each to each presence from far away.
Presence I say, but mean equivalence thereby.
The unexpressed that from afar can magnify,
can shrink us from afar until we’re almost gone :
Unreally possessed and really foregone.
– Rainer Maria Rilke
