The tree

The tree of life
The tree of life

The tree

The tree in many cultures
a place of gathering
a sacred, shaded place

A place where people share their goods and words
Questions, answers, statements, thoughts, ideas
Verse and Controverse

Where some agree and others disagree
Where people share their point of view
and viewpoints

A place where words become sacred
And sacred their expressions…

a place of bargain
and barter

Spiced with the emotions of our human condition
Colored with fate, faith, cult, culture,…
Multi verses and universe

And beyond the physical reality of the tree
The psychical and spiritual realm of so many
All around the globe

Banyan, the sacred tree of India

And amongst them
The sacred tree of India
And its delightful fruits

All those who have come
To gather and to share
Enlightments and doubt

And here, a small part of ST friends
Gathered to share
their wisdom, insights, experience

In a spirit of belonging
To the same heavens and earth
In respect of each expressions

I am aware with many others
that the task is beyond measure
May peace and wisdom be with us all

Let us keep up with the good word…


Banyan, sacred tree of India

  1. Very beautiful … Though A/C halls have taken over but still , the fun and joy of sitting under the Banyan tree under the vast sky ..
    Has it’s own beauty .

    • India will be a great teacher in the future
      Since it has always honored and respected its past

      And sitting under the sacred tree is part of it
