Biography of Mohabeer Beeharry
I was born in Mauritius in 1937. I am married and have two children, one son and one daughter and two granddaughters. In 1964 I came to London to study law. I studied at the Lincoln's Inn. I also did B.ed(hons) . I love writing poems, mostly on philosophical and spiritual themes. Most of my poems come from intuitions obtained in meditation. I do not demand a lot from life. I am very satisfied with what I have. However it breaks my heart to see so much of blood shed and hypocrisy around the world. There is hardly any knowing who to trust. Still I love this humanity. There may be a little fire or storm going on here and there. But humanity is a glorious state of being.
God bless this humanity.

Mohabeer Beeharry Poems
He Was Born Free
He was born free a long time ago When his mind and body were young. He loved the village lanes And the busy market towns.
The Flower Of Your Heart
I brought a flower to him. The wise old man shook his head. Child, he said I made the trees and the flowers;
A Touch Of Light
Let us for a moment Dare to hold our books to our hearts, Invoking some sincerity. Their wisdom is timeless
A Place For You To Rest
I cannot stop cursing myself For not giving you A better place To rest your head
I celebrate the cosmos with its infinite Multitude of suns, moons, stars and planets. I celebrate the lovely and exuberant world With its blue sky, and oceans,
Which Side Of The Mirror?
I wonder what game we are playing with life. I am one And life is another. Life does not end, at any time
Dream Is Only Dream
At the top of a tree There was the last fruit, And it was rosy, luscious and tempting. I watched the tree,
Who knows what truth is? Do you? Do I know? I don't.
The Song Of The Mystic Song Bird
It sings. Ceaselessly. Night and day
I Salute You Artist
I salute you artist Who can bring my master home to me. Love they say has no language, And no time to bloom
Not all the stories That I have heard Will make me change my mind about you. The wise man says
Stop awhile traveller On the way of life. What are you looking for, Peace, happiness?
I Need To Know
I have eyes, But I cannot see what I need to see. I have ears, I cannot hear what I need to hear.
Love Your Freedom
I am bird. Like all creatures I value my freedom.
What do I care if mountains topple and rivers flood!
This body falls and disintegrates!
I was not intended to last for a day.
I was here before the planets,
The mountains, the rivers and the waterfalls!
Before the first flower that ever bloomed.
I have seen many a day rise, their sheen,
Like the will- o'-the-wisp, disappeared into the dark nights of hopelessness;
Rivers swallowed by the thirsty cradles of the parched earth.
