Silence

Silence and tranquility

silence
is not empty,
it is always
full of
all the answer…
in the tranquility
of silence alone,
man has fought
all the battles
of mind
and uncovered
in its eloquence
all the riddles,
all the answer…
silence
is not empty,
it is always
full of
all the answer…

The path

The path - swan - Saraswati

the path
*
looking for it
here & there,
treading
a thousand path…
all along my
eternal journey,
i traversed
many a path…
then one day,
the-one-within,
whispered
along the path…
you are your
path oh traveller,
your
pathless path…
your
pathless path…

Suchness

Universe

When one is
willing to see,
the entire universe
removes its veils
so that one can see…
and
in its such-ness,
happily Be.

Suchness

suchness

being simply
in suchness,
truth reveals
itself
to the attentive,
in
infinite way…
nothing more

and

Man & Woman…

Man & Woman...

Man & Woman…
Are they ever poles apart?
Or do they compose & comprise One World & One Humanity, sharing one equal footing on this earth ??
Yes, it is our mindset only which sets us as worlds apart!
Truth is, we each of us are made up of the blend of strength, valour, administration, control (masculine qualities) as much as love, compassion, care, sacrifice & justice (feminine qualities) and till there is a balance of these polarities, we can never ever evolve as complete individual entities & make for ourselves a balanced, cohesive society.
Can we, Can’t we do so by integrating in ourselves these male/female polarities & thereby successfully overcome gender inequality, in the deeper depth of our psyche??
This indeed is the call of true civility and in heeding to this call in letter & spirit only we can owe ourselves a foreseeable civilised society.
And hence, on this day of Women’s Day, as a tribute to the highly adorable Motherhood, and as a representative human being, I beg to make this sincere appeal:
Do not make it
A vertical split
Oh men & women!
Do not make it
A horizontal divide.
Do not see it as
Just black & white
Oh men & women!
Don’t make yourselves
Realms aside…
It is
one-earth,
one-worth,
one-bond,
one-binding,
Oh children
of God!
that keeps us alive…
Do not make it
A vertical split
Oh men & women!
Do not make it
A horizontal divide !!
??
Happy Women’s Day?
and friends,
Happy day of humanity.

The Ashtavakra Gita

The Ashtavakra Gita

“The Ashtavakra Gita is an ancient spiritual document of great purity and power.

Pure, because it is relentlessly one-pointed.

Every word is aimed at triggering Self-realization, no suggestions for self-improvement, no rules for moral behavior, no practical wisdom for daily life.

Powerful, because the mere reading, or repeated reading of it can be enough to send a ripe mind reeling into Truth.”

(A humble attempt to present the crystal clear, simple drops of wisdom from Astabakra Gita, as translated by Bart Marshall, keeping the sanctity of the feeling intact.)

The real

The deer

Reality is
so simple,
uncomplicated,
and
never so cruel.

Being real is
in your heart
and soul,

the real
always meets
the real.

Reality is
always
bare & open,
eternally,
for the real.

for the real…

The primordial

Little one

You are
One & Only,
the primordial,
the oldest
of the old.

You are
the first pulse
of the beginning,
and
you in yourself
are the pulse of
all that is
here & now,
the tender,
and the bold.

You’re verily
all that is
yet to born
from the womb
of eternity…
You’re
a story,
as yet untold.

Yes, yes,
yes my friends,
in yourself
you are
everything…

Home-bound

Home-bound

home-bound

Every journey
however long
and turbulent,
a fine morning
makes a round.
Every journey is
in itself
a full-circle,
in itself
a merry go round.
Awareness alone
makes it complete.
and
each-step,
in itself
home-bound.
each-step,
in itself,

New ways

New ways

new ways
?
There is always
a new way,
a new perspective,
a new angle of seeing.
There is always
a new scope,
a new avenue,
a new platform of being.
If one goes on
doing things,
as one has always done,
one misses out
a whole lot of new ways,
and
many a novelties
of life and living.
How amazingly,
a fresh look,
a refreshed outlook,
and
a refreshing reorientation
resurrects a new man,
upon the wonderful
ground-of-being!!

Truth

Truth
The obvious is
seldom seen,
The apparent is

Truth is lived

Without

ever being spelt…

That moment

that moment
that moment of
complete silence,
no chattering,
no noise.
that instant of
non-dangling,
complete balance

that moment of
only-oneness,
non-duality,
just rejoice.
is not that
the only goal,
nothing more,
and
nothing less ?

Memory

Memory

Memory of
one’s
Pristine Purity
is carved deep,
in deeper depth

And
that alone
is hope,
the ever inspiring
inspiration of soul.
All along,
in one’s sojourn
through eternity,
for
one’s atonement
with the whole 🙂

Love

Love

Love
*

there is a language,
one need not
mandatorily utter.

Far from man made
rules of life
and his grammar of living,
there is an order
which man & inanimate
naturally, equally,
silently adhere.

Be it the fragrance
of flower,
be it spring’s whisper…
be it the flicker of
the shining star,
or
be it the stream’s murmur…

There is a language,
one need not
necessarily pronounce,
and
one need not
mandatorily utter.

What at all is it?
Is it love’s language?
Or is it, as they say it,
God’s own whisper??

Do not just believe,
for someone says so.
Just touch your heart,
and feel that pulse.

The pulse
that resonates
in you & me,
and in everything,
in an ineffable,
unutterable
eternal bout of love…

that you
need not
pronounce
and of course,
that you
need not utter…

The story

The same story
goes on…
The same story,
in many ways
time & again
said and re-said…

And yet,
about yourself,
nothing more
can ever be said.
No addendum
can ever be added.

In your true self
You are ever-new.
No more newness,
No novelty
can ever be added.

In your self,
ever-content.
ever-happy,
you’re
ever-satisfied.

About yourself,
nothing more
need to be said.
No addendum
need be added.

Everything,

relegate behind,

in a joyful,
fun-filled moment of life,
in a cheerful
moment-of-cheer!

ennobling possibility

Love is what….

Love is what...

Love is not the game…
that the romantics play.
Love is not the ritual
That the preachers say…

Who can please you,
But,
who has ever owned your
Heart?
Who can touch you…
But,
who has ever won your heart…!

Nothing can stop you ever
From having happiness.
Just get over…
Get over,
From your conditioned reflex.

Who has not ever masked himself,
Just try to think…
Who has not ever deceived himself,
Look into the mirror,
And think…

Man is lost..
“Man is lost”…
Merely written on the wall…
The lost-one has
only lost himself,
Behind a borrowed mask…

Unknown to himself…
Can he ever find
a-man-of-love?
Unloved by himself,
Can he know ever…
the taste-of-Love…?

Love is not the game,
that the romantics play.
Love is not the ritual
That the preachers say…

Love is what…
Only the generous know.
The loving-one is just loved…
And It is all,
A Lover’s play…

The loving-one is just loved…
And it’s all…
A Lover’s-Play…! — met Rosie Wilkins, Madhumita Barpanda, Shila Mahapatra en 15 anderen.

And

Do not seek it

All that you are looking for
