The Ultimate Liberator!

For the seekers of knowledge
Can there be a knowledge?
better than
The Knowledge of The Divine, Shri Rama!

The one who liberated
Even the blades of grasses
And all the swarms of ants

Leaving none behind
That ever existed
In the Good City of Ayodhya

And placed them in
An exotic heaven
Created exclusively for them
By the Great Grandshire Brahma!


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest

The twin-syllable, Rama
When a devotee exalts!
The Birth-Death cycle
It permanently halts

Goodness and Wealth
It everyday brings
Sin and poverty
It cleanses and shrinks


Goodness Honesty Sweetness Simplicity
Gentleness Strength Humility Bravery
Valour Talent Prowess Success
Memory Trustworthiness Heroism Genuinity
Such adorable qualities and so much more
By chanting Rama's name you will score!


My Lord's Story: Goodness Incarnate

Ramayanam in English poetry.

The Supreme Lord of the Universe was once born on this earth as a Human Being, faced challenges and had His share of pain and pleasure going through both good and bad times like any of us. Like any of us He too, took His turn in laughter and cry.

This humility of The Lord, that makes Him come down to earth and share with us our difficulties to show us a way to handle them is what I admire in Him. This quality of Him, makes me surrender to Him unconditionally and makes me want to sing His Glory on and on and on.

My Lord's Story is an out pour of my devotion that seeps out in gratitude for the pains He took to be a lighthouse for us, to cross the ocean of Samsara.

Back to innocence...

I never wanted to be born on this earth

I never chose my date of birth

I never chose to become a male

My birth to me is a wonder tale!

Tied into this body by a mighty force

I did not know the way to oppose

I never chose the look of my face

Everything happened at a random pace

I came to this world shedding tear

Not ever knowing what was fear

I looked around here and there

Wonder! I saw every where

Someone told me, “You are this.”

Someone told me, “You are that.”

Someone told me, “You did this.”

Someone told me, “You did that.”

Now I realize I am not this

Now I realize I am not that

Now I realize those were lies

Ignorant words from fatal ties

Then who are you? You may ask

To answer that is a difficult task

I am nothing, so no debate

Just a doll, in the hands of fate!

I like to share an Osho speech which is similar to this poem. I am giving it in my own words.

“The moment you are born in this earth, this society starts to teach you ignorance. It applies many colors on you. You are an Indian. You are a tamilian. You are a Hindu. You are this caste and so on. But the truth is, you are just a human being. A human being with hunger, thirst, emotions and love. If you are really honest you will accept that you are just a being. Even the prefix human can be removed.”

Thoughtful poem. It reminds me of Yesuda's song "Naan Oru Bhomai...Nee Oru Bhomai..."

happy blogging

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Thanks parv. Osho is one guru who has helped me a lot. But still I have many contradictions with him. Anyhow I would strongly recommend reading Osho. Because he is a bold and unique thinker. He''ll give you the guts to take your own decision and look at life your own way.Nice to know you too read Osho.

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Prema thanks. Happy blogging.

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

I think I left out one more point about Osho. He makes you think on your own. Nobody else can brain wash you with false values.

Hi Ramesh!

Excellent writing with very deep meaning and plenty to ponder about the meaning of our existence, our constant struggle to achieve, excel and out perform others.

I read a quote from the Bhagvat Geetha reading something like this: YOU CAME WITH NOTHING---- AND YOU WILL GO WITH NOTHING.

Thanks for sharing!

Have a nice day!

shri ramesh sadasivam said...
