The Way… - Poem by kunjubi varghese

In the land where the doctrine of Non- Duality

Of God, originated, and its profounder was born,

There are now, a thousand gods, thousand castes,

And a thousand religions, headed by god men;

Sprouting like mushrooms, in the rainy season.

Some religions are established, and then expire also;

Soon after, their founder passes away, and into oblivion.

And established religions plunder and pilfer

The conscience and the wealth, of the loyal simpletons,

Through coercion and fraud, promising heaven to them.

Man has only, one path to follow, any time;

The way to eternal love, and quest for truth.

The day has only one lamp, that gives light for all,

Yet, the night can enjoy a dream of light, only

By kindling, the lamps of myriad stars.

Who can see the light of those stars

When the sun shines and spreads its radiance?
