gajanan mishra

(3rd April 19sixty / Tikapali, Patnagarh, Balangir, Odisha, India now at Tapobana, Titilagarh, Odisha, India)

O seeker of salvation

O seeker of salvation,
Come and go as you like
perform yours activities
For the good of others.

O seeker of salvation,
Subsides your ego
Practise discipline
And get rid of attachment.

O seeker of salvation
Come to practical life
Do not always go with books
Books will lead you to hell.
