Nirvana - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

What is Nirvana if not being nude?
Being nothing, feeling nothing,
desiring nothing- is it so?
Moksha- can it be? [liberation]
Free of rebirth, free of attachment,
free of illusion-is it so?
Without passion, without opinion,
without judgment, without desire?
A fire without fuel- should it be?
The one who attained never ordained.
The one who ordained had not attained.
Nirvana is not a goal to run to.
It is a mount to climb up.
So much is so good, to have a better view.
