Mind 1 - Liberation Of The Mind - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
Let liberation be the motto of
The present generation
And the generations to come;
First and foremost:
Let there be liberation of the mind,
From the shackles of pre-conceived ideas and notions,
From the clutches of anger and hatred,
From the grip of terrorism and vandalism,
From the bondage of Ego!
Let the global wind blow into my tiny mind
Filling my brain -
The cerebrum, cerebellum and medulla oblongata
With fragrance of love!
Let the four walls of my heart -
The two auricles and
The two ventricles open their valves
To let out the toxic blood
And refill them with pure blood of compassion!
Let the breeze of all cultures
Waft in through the windows of my house
And cool the rooms with pure altruism;
Let me not hold on to dreadful habits,
Age old strife's and meaningless rivalry -
That block my growth in life,
A hurdle to my progress in work,
An impediment to my philanthropic ways
To follow the path of truth!
Let me celebrate my liberation only
With a pure mind!
To be able to think freely - at the same time
Respecting the thoughts of my fellow beings;
Let me have the freedom to speak - yet, taking care
Not to use words that hurt others;
Let my action be an example,
A lesson and a learning,
To be imbibed and followed by the children of my country.
