Between Birth And Death! - Poem by Ramdas Bhandarkar

Between two shores,
Birth and death,
Ignorance and knowledge,
Turmoil and peace,
Mortality and immortality,
There is the ocean of dualities!

The world of dualities,
It is the ocean with waves and tides,
life is found there,
When energy and matter play,
Soul is the player,
stage is mind one is full of confusion!

Identification is what we need,
The world full of life,
light eaters and life eaters,
Autotrophs and Hetrotrophs,
Life eating life,
are parasites or saprophytes,
O, man what are
we?
Listen to call of
Drummer,
Who sent his ambassadors,
Listen to them,
You can cross the shores,
Take deep breath and stop,
See the spinning wheel at head's top,
Let silence be the meditation,
Drum beats may pacify all!

Listen the eternal music,
The heart sing in you,
The lovely melody of love,
that melody subside all dualities of ego!

Then with in you will ask yourself
Hunger and thirst,
Desires and lust,
Needs and greeds,
Love and hate,
Is that all the life?

Your own mind answers you,
You have come a long way,
Look back, dream is over,
You had been there over and over,

You yourself made poorer and poorer,
You moved away from your throne on which you were not there long since!

    It is always energetic whenever we read about the eternal truth. Nothing can satisfy this thirst of searching the truth in the minds of human. Good.. (Report) Reply
