Elucidation - Poem by Amitava Sur
One day I appeared on this earth
With my body and a mind.
But that also I realized to be created
By someone other than me.
So nothing of this being is truly mine.
Later, working out the body
And exercising this mind,
I gathered knowledge and wisdom
And realized that
I am also a part of the ABSOLUTE.
Then this enlightened I
Can very well realize
That everything in this universe
Truly belongs to me.
As I own the riches and fortune
Then distress and hunger are also mine!
From that stage onward
I cannot be cruel or an one eyed,
I cannot be a miser, selfish nor dominating,
And not hankering for anything.
By loving everything that I find
Will witness the infinite peace divine
Realizing the real truth behind
That nothing is truly of mine
But I own this whole universe
So rich a person am I
That nothing I need anymore
Except the wisdom of DIVINE.
