Swim in the Lord's flowing stream.
One who has lost 'I' and 'me',
Mingles easy in His sea.
Akha, have insight this way,
Space is in the center every which way.

Here is a distinguished translation that can be read by every person, not as an archaic monument to an ancient culture, but as a living contemporary message that touches the most urgent personal and social problems.
