The Celestial House - Poem by renu kakkar
I was in meditation that day again,
and saw a park with little green hills.
The weather indicated fall of rain,
the picture was completed with singing birds.
I felt as if I was in another world,
I saw a distant house I walked towards.
A strange house it looked indeed,
cautiously I moved forward.
The framework of doors and windows were visible, ,
its roof was huge and white like a dome,
Doors and windows, however seemed invisible,
celestial light it emitted and I knew I was home.
As I came to stand before the house,
I heard chanting of Om coming from inside.
I realized that the chanting was from within,
coming from the rooms inside.
I felt at peace upon entering
all my aches and pains were vanishing.
Was it the house or the chanting,
that was effecting this miraculous healing.
As I walked through the doorway,
no one was there whom I could meet.
I saw a number of open doorways,
that led into rooms with chanting sweet.
Someone came toward me suddenly and stood,
dressed in a flowing white gown with a slash tight.
Tears rolled down as his aura was so good,
His clothes emitted pure celestial light.
For a minute i was held spellbound,
he smiled and blessed me with raised hands.
Thereafter I do not know what happened
he vanished and I found myself in familiar surrounds.
