Supreme Being - Poem by Om Chawla
Within me do I dwell and also dwell in you,
I dwell in everything and I dwell outside too,
I dwell in Being and without being I am too,
I am the creation and I am creator too,
Wherefore do you search me, reflect for I am you.
I am water, fire am I
I am earth and sky.
All these are my manifestations
Though unmanifest remain I.
I am fury, I am wrathful,
my articulation though is tranquility.
I am aroma, I am fragrance,
Though beyond smell am I.
Close your eyes and look within,
Manifest in you am I.
I am lover I am lover's errand,)*
I am Creator and myth am I. )*
Every where you have searched me
Abode shunya is of me.
It's only when you search within,
Can you ever find Me.
*Initially I had composed the following two lines: -
- I am Radha, I am Udhav
- I am Brahma and myth am I
I have changed these because the reference to characters in Hindu scriptures may not be understood by many.
