Sukha / Duhkha


Appearance of agreeable circumstances
Is Sukha
Appearance of disagreeable circumstances
Is Duhkha
Modification and constant change
Is Vikara
We are in between these
In anger
In jealousy
And anger
That hurts our pride
The root of all these
Is our desire or longing
Our life-breath in this longing
Let us know us first
For healthy living here
So long as we call ourselves alive.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
