Raman Savithiri

(22-May-1969 / Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, India)

779. Wake up TRUTH!


Take my body
Take my mind
Take even my spirit
But…
Wake up TRUTH!
Make me worth!

As TRUTH sleeps
My soul weeps
In clutches of mind
Under senses that bind!

Therefore
Take my body
Take my mind
Take even my spirit
But…
Wake up TRUTH!
Make me worth!

My spirit clings
To life which flings
Me in earth hither and thither
As TRUTH snoozes ever!

Therefore
Take my body
Take my mind
Take even my spirit
But…
Wake up TRUTH!
Make me worth! 270409

    this poem is in line with Amma's word ' I am nobody; I am your servant; Please save me'

    purpose of life is self-realisation

    i feel worth mentioning again Amma' think, i am the self; i am in everything; everything is also within me; what then will you be sad about; there is nothing separate from us; we are one; not two'

    great seers' vision is explicit here;

    but

    taking the body mind and spirit reminds me of Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlowe which i do not get

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
