    Listen Buddhist Barbie..

    In the 5th century B.C.
    an Indian philosopher
    Gautama teaches 'All is emptiness'
    and 'There is no self.'
    In the 8th century A.D.
    Shankaracharya never agrees,
    but points at Upanishads
    wonders how a man
    totally empty can see his disciples,
    preach and teach
    emptiness to emptiness?
    There is self where one is selfless
    smiling on thought of emptiness
    Says we may feel headless or empty head
    But the one who fills all space
    use the device fitted in Globe on our Neck.

    Self shine in its own glory in Selfless person..
    wise one. humble and polite. Shines like Stars,
    burning ignorance as fuel, radiating light of love silently,
    with twinkling smile on lips of Mrithu jaya ananda
    (bliss of winning death) (Report) Reply

    I think he did not deny the self just kept quiet about it. Good poem. Interesting to think how Barbie is trying to find or create her own identity. (Report) Reply
