Buddha - Poem by Pratheek Praveen Kumar in Calm Reflections
A great person of lore,
Whose heart tore,
When he saw suffering,
So wisdom did he try to bring.
A person who gave up everything,
So that he could end suffering,
By finding the secret of life,
And so he gave up even his son and wife.
To a forest did he go,
And according to lore,
He sat under a peepal tree,
And light did he see.
He went everywhere to bring peace,
Never once did he his work cease,
Many varied people did he cure,
And the rise of Buddhism did he ensure.
He was respected by all,
Many people did answer his call,
To join him to spread wisdom,
For this life he had given up a kingdom.
