A Pair Of Points - Poem by Rajaram Ramachandran

For every action, there's reaction.
If you sow corn, you reap corn.
In pairs lives the world,
As good, bad, hot or cold.

If every one is good
And no one is bad,
How to judge a good
Between every one good?

If every one is man
And there is no woman
How a progeny be seen
In the men's world clean?

If every day remains hot
And the cold remains not
How the heat be blown out
With the cold that exist not?

If the world is full of hate,
And the love goes abate
How bad can be its fate
With all eyes ever on hate?

In pairs, all things coexist.
Behold, this is the gist
Of the Holy orders, just
One should know at least.

    Pairing is deluding!
    Nondualism [Monism or Secondlessness] if the Jnana.
    Nice treat with subtle massage.
    Ten. Sir.
