O Kid, What You Meditate Upon? - Poem by Ramdas Bhandarkar

O Just born infant kid,
why you sleep all the time,
Not opening your eyes,
what you meditate upon?

You just not know were you are,
This world may change you,
Do you think how can you change the world,
Do you think what is around?
Do you know who brought you?

what is that you meditate on,
You are that,
yet ready to fall into MAYA,
And that you brought with your
own karma and samskaras, Egoless state is beautiful,
Not with ignorance,
But with all knowledge,
Crossing the ocean from this
shore of ignorance to other shore
of knowledge, Both shores, the ocean and boat
all being you!

Listen this kid,
Self is that which,
is beyond every form of energy,
Yet is the infinite source of all,
Beyond the stage on which every
perform its show,
There is the neutral enjoyer, Who is dreaming these world, Earth is that fertile womb,
Where this self entered with
Desire to know the nature!
Just as one wants to love another
to understand more, Or to have one to understand! Only way out is understand the
And understand your own
Let nature go in its own way,
let nature leave you to live in your own way,
For that understand what is Self,
Whether nature and self are one,
Or different from one another?
Without Self or nature no one can
be there, If someone is there,
He is that Truth which can't see
and understand Himself!

You came here to conquer,
Not anything, only to conquer
your own nature, Your own idiocy and foolishness!
