    Wonderful poem...Beautiful lines...
    To admit desire
    Is the cause of all despairs...Very true said. Loved reading it. I feel after a particular point of time in ones life following Buddhism can do much. Especially when one to detach from everything and from all worldly affairs. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    The true meaning of life is substantiated by the ultimate mindset of every individual.
    Desire and despair are quite human and therefore lay platform for your philosophy of guidance. Well written Mr Prem Kumar. (Report) Reply

    Desire and despair are related, as the Hindu prince Buddha told, but he did not tell us how to live our life without desire, as everyone can not give up the desire and the bond of the family. If everyone become the monk, whom do we look, for the alms. Donating the ill gotten money will not eliminate our bad karma...Hinduism talks about life...but Buddhism talks about the despair of every meal! ! ! (Report) Reply

    despair deposited in the minds earns us worries, that is the disintersting interest.
    Simple poem and clear expression of thoughts, nicely put. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
