A BEAUTIFUL LIFE!


A beautiful life is like harmonious music in the world;
Life is knowledge, culture, enjoyment and liberation;
But nobody follows dharma and suffers in the world
Driven by modern life due to civilisation sans culture!

Sufferings are due to attachment or desire says creeds;
But life with desire fair and natural can be lived well!
True knowledge of life and meditation Gita gives well;
Knowledge of Self, World, Nature and Universal God,
To have a clear vision of the whole is necessary first.

Vision helps one know what duty one has to do in life
And also what ambition one should have to go firmly
In work one does to make achievement in the world!
Physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual progress
To a harmonious level makes easy for higher venture
To know past, present and future clear and perfect.

Good food, games and yoga keep human physique fine;
Art, music, painting and poetry keep ever emotion well;
Discovery of self and pursuit of truth keep intellect joyful;
Meditation on the beauties of Nature keeps spirit elevated;
Stable body, heart and mind only make spiritual life alive!

A beautiful life aims at harmonious expansion of human nature;
In harmony with Nature harmonious human perfection is possible
By love and knowledge, work and play and beauty and truth
In achieving beauty and excellence in human nature in fields
Such as art, science, religion, philosophy, poetry and politics!

    A beautiful guide to a beautiful life! A poem full of life! I am a newcomer to this site. I just had a glance through your poems and was highly impressed by the depth of the thoughts conveyed. In course of time I will take time to read and comment on them. Meanwhile I would like you to know that I have pasted here a collection of my poems on the well known social worker late Baba Amte. I think you would be interested in knowing more about him and his work. I would like you to kindly go through some of them at your convenience, give your valuable comments and help me spread his universal message. (Report) Reply
