Atheist or agnostic may be truly spiritual


Atheist or agnostic may be truly spiritual
It sounds somewhat unnatural
Science is uncompromising search of truth
And science of 'Being' is ontological.
The sage 'Ramteerth', travelling in a ship, , met an old man
He said, he is trying to learn Russian as soon as he can
The puzzled ' Swamee' asked why he doing this instead of devoting to 'God'
The old man, a famous geologist and professor said he is not too old
To learn Russian to translate a famous book for students and country men
'As for devotion to God, your own 'Geeta' says as a guide to all men
That 'Karmayoga' includes unselfish spread of true knowledge'
These words gave new insights to the Indian sage.
Truth love and beauty, the three faces of Shiva are at the base of humanism
And spiritualism including scientist's agnostic secularism
In fact they are roots and flowers of all great religion
It is more valuable to live these values, truly human!

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
