Rookie - 34 Points (Madikeri)

Unconscious Learning nature's Lessons,

Many memories, many experiences
universe is my teacher, every moment
every events, at every points in space
wherever mind travels picks pebbles

Every breeze brought many pollen grains
the ovum of doubts and inquiries fertilized
seeds sprouted and became heavenly trees
In forest of memories mind happily roams.

In forest of memories sometimes lost path
but met with wonders of nature, valleys
Springs of fresh water, moss covered rocks
met fishes in streams and thirsty deer, hungry lions.

whenever lost way, reached places,
where I had to be, something waits
a lesson or a duty, many rocks hurled
and fell by my touch, some raised
like Ahalya by Rama's touch..

things and unfulfilled souls wait
where unknowingly we reach, but never we believe
just our mere touch bring freedom to bound souls
we never recognize Ahalya waits for Rama in us
Or Rama within Us who can bestow deliverance
souls wait for many years for us for grace of divine in us..

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In Ramayana Rama's touch freed Ahalya from Curse.

The Valmiki Ramayana tells how Indra was cursed by the Rishi. Once Rishi Gautama went to bathe in the river. At that time Indra saw Ahalya and was fascinated by her. He took the form of Gautama Rishi, approached her & made love to her. While he was returning, the Rishi saw him and cursed him. He cursed Ahalya that she should turn to stone. Later the great Rishi modified his curse and gave the boon to Ahalya that when Raama touches the stone, she would retutn to her original form and return to him.

Valmiki Ramayana - Bala Kanda - Sarga 49:
''Ahalya is redeemed from her curse when Rama enters their hermitage. Vishvamitra while continuing the narration of the legend of Ahalya asks Rama to enter her hermitage where Ahalya is living unseen by anybody. When once Rama steps into that hermitage she manifests herself from her accursed invisible state. She emerges with her divine form and accords guestship to Rama and Lakshmana. Sage Gautama also arrives at this juncture to accept his depurated wife Ahalya.
