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)

Buddhist Barbie



In the 5th century B.C.
an Indian philosopher
Gautama teaches 'All is emptiness'
and 'There is no self.'
In the 20th century A.D.
Barbie agrees, but wonders how a man
with such a belly could pose,
smiling, and without a shirt.

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
