Lord Buddha - Poem by Dr. Ramesh Chandra Mukhopadhyaya

Buddha roared like a lion

and thundered upon the world

the message of love and karunaa

Buddha was as loving as the kangaroo

He wanted to carry the groaning world

in the bag close to her belly

to reach them to nirvaana

Buuddha showed up in the world

as if from nowhere

just as a snake does

Buddha hit the world with his fangs

and then suddenly disappeared from the world

just as a snake does

Was he real or was he a figment

of the ailing earths dream

Was the world drug addict?

Did the world drink hemlock to drains

to make a Buddha in its own image?

    King Siddhartha became Buddha when once he understood that Spiritualism is greater than the material world around us! The Buddha alone can stand as a ever smiling Teacher of the world! Great theme. (Report) Reply
