Learn the lessons Oh Man
24 May 2009 4 Comments
Nature, man’s best teacher and guide,
Works incessantly on each of us,
To teach us the eternal laws of truth
The laws of Dharma we must abide

Realise this and be vigilant,
Through alertness you will be transformed
For nature continues to teach you
Until you have learnt the lesson meant for you

It is beneficial O imprudent one!
To break the shackles of ego and pride,
And to succumb to His will, His resolution,
For that shall be done, how long will u hide?

Understand , there is no chaos in this universe,
Every motion, predetermined, every orbit in order,
The sun, The moon, the planets, the galaxy of stars,
All obedient, complacent in their own course

Centuries old are all of them, powerful are they
Still meticulous and diligent as if following an unknown master,
You will remain small and infinitesimal, try as much as u may,
But wait, there is hope for you.

Hope for you, if u surrender,
Surrender to the will of the ever-compassionate Lord,
Sway like a small blade of grass, as Amma says,
Alas! Look at the tall tree perished in its own vanity

For then you will emerge stronger with an uproar
Uproar of conquer over your powerful enemy
Your own conceited mind, and its incessant chatter
Misguiding and deafening,

Stopping you from meeting YOU seated
Within the deepest recesses of you .

- Preeti

Rocking words of poetry
Beating the dusty thoughts
To smash the vanity
An’ to break the lusty bonds

But surely we must have confidence given we are Amma’s close children. Being mean and arrogant is not on, but Fearless and Brave nature can be ours, no?
