The Purpose of Man!


Thousand and One Nights stories queen may say
To escape from the execution by ruthless king!
But Nine and One Nights is a real story forever!

Nine planets and one Sun are our solar system;
A burning star is our Sun keeping all planets
With fire burning-in to revolve round it in orbits!

Destiny of all planets are tied to this one Star
Among many stars in Milky Way and galaxies
Balanced each other by each others gravitation!

The fire or heat within all keeps all alive here;
This is soul or spirit, a speck from Universal Spirit
After serving its purpose to reach all pervading Spirit!

Nine stages are there for a soul to attain tenth stage,
The final stage to reach the all pervading spirit or God;
This is the message of Nine and One Nights festival!

Plants and trees have one sense or knowledge;
Fish and reptiles have two senses or knowledge;
Ants and insects have three senses or knowledge.

Crabs and wasps have four senses or knowledge;
All wild animals have five senses or knowledge;
Above all man has six senses or knowledge!

After man, mystics have seven senses or knowledge;
Above them, angels known have eight senses or knowledge;
Above them, divine Lords have nine senses or knowledge!

Above all on the tenth level, the all pervading God comes,
The final stage of hierarchy just as the rungs of a ladder;
Climbing each rung to final one is the purpose of man here!

Creation, preservation and destruction God does as duty;
Man has to develop knowledge, wealth and power as duty
In life time to attain divine-hood with one mind as mission!
