By prayer you can feel God!


A few young boys met a saint,
Sir! You said to everybody that
There is God; He is everywhere!

Where is he? What is he doing?
How will he look like? Can you show us?
The poor saint! The boys were ridiculing!

The saint ordered, “Bring me some milk in a pot”
The young boy brought milk in a wide mouthed pot,
The saint was looking curiously into the milk!

Every now and then, the saint
Was stirring the milk with his finger,
Swerved the pot with both his hands!

He took it in his hands,
He kept the pot on the floor,
He was peeping into the milk again!

The young boys losing patience
Angrily asked the saint, “Sir, we asked
You to show the God,

But you are playing with the milky pot”
The saint replied, “Wait, I am searching
For the butter in this milk with hand”

The young boys became aggressive, said,
“You ignorant fellow, don’t you know that you have
To make the curd from milk and churn to get butter? ”

Young boys! Butter is there in every drop of milk,
Similarly, God is present everywhere in this universe!
By prayer you can feel God; as you prepare butter!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
