Life is…. 

mystical Poems

 

You don’t look too scared

Looking to be compared

While all others prepared

You sat there and shared

 

Take on life you dared

To everyone you bared

Secrets of heart you aired

An open book you declared

 

Why now you seem flared

People mistook & squared

The round peg impaired

once done cant be repaired

 

See I never cared

For what others ensnared

I to my own tune blared

One and only unpaired

 

Life is to be lived & erred

Safe soul is beggared

Cant live on the edged

Lose the plot inhered

 

The one who lives completed

Is always avant garde-d

Accepting the grace unrestricted

Fulfils existence involuted

 

The inside world unfolded

Brings forth nectar shrouded

Multiverses of world created

The one in many manifested

 

(And then the one said ….)

 

Live complete Rama Dasa

Explore inside out Rama Dasa

There is no inside Rama Dasa

And no outside Rama Dasa

Life is….

Rama Dasa, Life is….

The Giant Tree

There was once a giant tree

Stood there completely carefree

Making food without paying a fee

Best business don’t you agree

The King decided this cant be

Real estate is ample rupee

How dare the tree be lessee

Without the royal decree

He ordered cutting with glee

Thinking only money no inquiry

The job fell on a novice trainee

Tried to chop it with a machete

Mighty blows did the wannabe

Give the giant tree third degree

With a lot of pain did end the fallacy

That saw collapse of the prodigy

This was the only tree you see

For over thousand acre territory

Taking toxins and in absentee

Giving oxygen for life plenty

The foolish King made a key

To timber all the wild tree

Not learning from the enlistee

Killed all of God’s greenery

It is said O! Rama Dasa

That it took Rama Dasa

Less than a lapse Rama Dasa

For Mankind’s Extinction Rama Dasa

Plant more trees Rama Dasa …

Plant more trees Rama Dasa …

The Night Owl 

 

On the wire sat an owl in the dark night

Swinging upon one leg at great height

Tu hoot tu hoot tu hoot it screeched sprite

Mixed the feelings were wrong or right

 

 

One part saw the feathers white

Imagined the swan in moon light

Separating the milk from water erudite

Rejecting the false choosing the right

 

 

The second watched Lakshmi’s flight

The Goddess of wealth smiling sight

Vehicle is here and affluence a kite

Granting your wish of abundance alright

 

 

Another peeped to see a flamingo light

Balancing on one leg like a sage uptight

One leg on the world knotted rope tight

The other wobbling in air of spiritual delight

 

 

Yet another perceived superstitious fright

To see an owl is an omen not too bright

The job at hand is doomed to be slight

O God! Make it go away or at least quite

 

 

Look at the truth said the owl Rama Dasa

That I come at night to feed Rama Dasa

That I am nocturnal and wise Rama Dasa

Drop the mind and see the real Rama Dasa

The one that is …

 

A dream that seems real is still a dream

Awakening that seems a dream is still a dream

Above these is a sleep deep with no dream

Then there is the one reality that is no dream

 

To react is the possible scheme

When the world comes in full steam

Through the senses flows the stream

Mind fools you in logical scream

 

Comparing with the next Ibrahim

Who has the biggest playing team

Is by far your silliest daydream

Keep away such grand extreme

 

Know that you are but a theme

In the eternal illusionary gleam

Here now in the mainstream

Tomorrow  is another sunbeam

 

Dream in a dream in a dream

You are just a thought it seam

Then why do you look for scheme

Gestalt et al of the supreme

 

Just relax and let it be Rama Dasa

See the reality in the absentee Rama Dasa

The one that is Rama Dasa

Is all that is Rama Dasa

WHEN I’M BEING, THERE IS NO ME….

Aum

 

WHEN I’M BEING, THERE IS NO ME….

 

I was born, yes it was me

I eat and sang, yes it was me

I grew and grew, yes it was me

I developed in mind, yes it was me

I developed in body, yes it was me

I built a self, yes it was me

I went to school, yes it was me

I fell in love, yes it was me

I thought of sex, yes it was me

I craved of senses, yes it was me

I gave respect, yes it was me

I vowed to parents, yes it was me

I take care, yes it was me

I fought for my country, yes it was me

I wanted money, yes it was me

I spent it quick, yes it was me

I coveted cars, yes it was me

I owned them nine, yes it was me

I lusted everything, yes it was me

I fancied watches, yes it was me

I yearned cloths, yes it was me

I desired all I saw, yes it was me

I lived only for me, yes it was me

I dreamed enterprise, yes it was me

I employed dozens, yes it was me

I grew an ego, yes it was me

I expected praise, yes it was me

I needed glory, yes it was me

I demanded superlatives, yes it was me

I got married, yes it was me

I had kids, yes it was me

I loved them, yes it was me

I they loved, yes it was me

I and I always, yes it was me

I was and nothing else, yes it was me

I yet didn’t know me, yes it was me

I am and was ignorant, yes it was me

I knew all but self and me, yes it was me

I wished one day, yes it was me

I to be, just be me, yes it was me

I was in being and then there was no me

O Rama! When I was in being, there was no me…..

You are me and I am you, but there is no me…..

ONE (the search for truth)

When I look for you, I found all as true

Like Rama’s blue, universe withdrew

 

 

When I look for you, things come into

The right brew, mixed up all through

I made it ingrew, quite easy to do

Then it shows due, the path of true

 

 

When I look for you, I found all as true

Like Rama’s blue, universe withdrew

 

By another clue, can’t show the skew

Neither the dew, nor the leaf’s true

The senses too, always lie to me two

Only world view, is to see me in you

 

When I look for you, I found all as true

Like Rama’s blue, universe withdrew

 

The world out threw, impressions undo

The roles play to, never real nor construe

Mind is the foe, slave mastering you

Designing avenue, inducing hallucinue

 

When I look for you, I found all as true

Like Rama’s blue, universe withdrew

 

Searching beyond knew, mind is shatru (enemy in Sanskrit)

Soon I flew, into the realm of true

Knowing the glue, that holds queue

To freedom pew, revealing light new

 

When I look for you, I found all as true

Like Rama’s blue, universe withdrew

 

There is no I or you and this is true

There is no two and this is the only true

There is ooh just the one sparking ado

All else is untrue, all else is so untrue

My greatest teacher

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

How can you be insane

Teaching the domain

That yourself profane

To the world explain

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

Opponents point the ordain

That I am really mandane

In the teachings I maintain

Never following it again

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

 Realizing this folly disdain

 I resolve to fully abstain

From the chains of ego-train

My soul to keep I retain

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

Then again another campaign

Starts to fight inside brain

Is it worth the effort children

To accept a teacher so arcane

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

Sets the ego to complain

Through the rough terrain

Only the though remain

Churning Truth Mountain

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

 Poisons the first butane

Released during churnane

Of the terrible and élan

Drink it bottom to obtain

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

The nectar of probity humane

Merging I with divine doctrine

A higher flowing ever sustain

Adversity possesses it in grain

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen

 

To be the genesis of all question

To be the seed of all moral stain

To be the trigger waiting to happen

To be the mother of all learnen

 

Adversity you are the bane

As is thought by the sane,

Rama sees it so plain

It is the mother of learnen
