'Darshan' - An English poem but no english word for this.


I was sleepless, and then morning dawned.
In the middle of dark well before dawn.
I finally stumbled on the meaning of the word "Darshan"
I do not seek love, lust, flesh, or anything such.
A relationship finally boils down to "Darshan"
Seeing the self in you.

Notes:
Hindu Devotees que up for hours to see the lords diety and the sight of the lords diety is called "Darshan". The Word "Darshan" is also associated with the connotation of Philosophy, example Jeevan Darshan or the philosophy of life, the way of life where the word Jeevan in hindi means life.

    Seeing the self in you. This poem gives me the picture of complete freedom in
    knowing who you are within. So simple, yet so powerful. Fantastic poem,
    Hardik! ! Thank you for sharing what the word Darshan means in the philosophy
    of life. Keep teaching me through your poetry, my mind is open to knowledge. (Report) Reply

    Darshan wonderful. It should be within this body. This body is a temple. God is within. We should have a Darshan every moment. Here no place of Hindu, no Christians, no Muslims. Creatures means creatures. here no religion no caste no color. (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
