Krishna is a unique synergy of archetypes


Krishna is a unique synergy of archetypes
It is not relevant for me whether he is a historical fact
Or 'Sampoorna avtaar', one of the godly stereo types
As a mythological figure his uniqueness will always attract.
His unparalleled contribution is 'karmayoga' of geeta, the song celestial
Delivered in battle field to a depressed 'Arjuna', who is escaping responsibility
Dispassionate yet passionate pursuit of values or 'dharma' perennial
He is a lover, yogi and warrior to end sinful inequity.
A friend, philosopher and statesman
Often unfair as a warring human
To establish higher 'dharma' he could be a political manipulator
Accepting 'Gaandhari's shaap' he gladly suffered his clan's ignoble destructive career.
Synergy and syntheses of multiple roll
Teaching and elevating body, mind and soul
Krishna conscience, doer - Arjuna and battle field 'Kurukshetra'
is alive every man's mind and life-goal.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
