No Rebirth; No Karma; - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

You don’t step in the same water two times
When you step in a river at a place.
You don’t look at the same flame two times
When you look at a lamp in a place.

The river is same but the water flows.
The lamp is same but the oil spends out.
Life force is same, made of energy,
From where are born and dead organisms.

Each flow is new and each flame is new.
Each birth is new, budding from the life force.
It dies like an electric bulb when fused,
And a new birth comes like a new bulb fit.

Leaves are born and leaves are dead of a tree.
Births of leaves are new births and not rebirths.
Humans are born and dead from the life force.
Every birth is new and not a rebirth.

The craving and the propensities
Come to a birth from the parental genes
And are not transmigrated from one birth
To the other as Karma of rebirth.
