Arpita’s Vow On Cultivating Faith’s Seed.


Declared she at the age of twenty,
Hey, -me! No profit I can earn,
Save the whirlwinds and burns,
Of the rooted parasites of so many lives,
Yes, with my stay on Sri Ramakrishna,
I would erase, evacuate and wipe.

Subsistence, help, worldly support!
The emotional irony of daily deaths,
The borrowed learning for trickery and beguile,
Smile away I, for Sri Ramakrishna’s profile.

I would reform my mind, as the captain of the body,
And translate my prayers into blooming lotus,
Therein, in my inner shrine, share the touch,
Of the aura-oriented divine universe.

Faith she proclaims, demands neither ‘yes’ nor ‘no’,
It is the calm acceptance of God’s will, as life goes.
And Maa Sarada, the Divine mother opens her lap to hold,
Yes, yes, I would go abreast with my crazy wild, and be bold.

I would continue the digging of my self -well,
Earthling the sediments of Sanaskar, till the water-level comes,
And then, with the opening of the timeless Unconscious,
I would mingle, and dissolve in Sri Ramakrishna’s touch! ! !

    Ardency and anguish for realizing God, and taking a vow to know the self, come from Faith. The character depicted in this poem, -is a real character that undertaken the vow of leading the life of a spiritual aspirant. Salute to her majesty! (Report) Reply

    If life turns into a divine life, then, only then, -the true joy of life begins to manifest. The poet of this poem had the privilege to share and feel, -the divine zeal of one, -the character of this poem, who on her faith in Sri Ramakrishna, has accepted the life of a spiritual aspirant.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
