A prediction

In 2013, 1 Tuesday, I chanted a whole day praising Rama's Feet. The next day morning I had a dream. In it I won an Oscar. I'll win 4 sure.

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!

-Nammazhvaar


Ramayanam is Agriculture
Bhagavatham is Harvest
-Me


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

-Kambar


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!

-Me

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.

Shri Krishna's Birth!



A Light that is source of all the lights
Desired to take birth on a night!
The formless that forms all the forms
Decided to take a baby form!

With skin in colour, deep dark blue!
And rosy lips, to butter chew!
With silky, smooth and curly hair!
And eyes that resemble a lotus pair!

To grant us all an eternal bail
The judge was born in a locked up jail!
Wrapped up in a soft yellow silk
He too cried for mother's milk!

With eyes that filled with tears, brim
His father and mother worshipped him.
Peace, bliss and joy filled the air
And every cell of the lucky pair!

Seeing their devotion, the smile maker smiled
Blessed by which, they too smiled!
Thus was born the King of kings!
Whose matchless praise, every wise man sings!

Happy Krishna Jayanthi!

Hi Sowmi,

Yeah, I understood that yesterday itself, though a bit late. :)

I tried to post comment on your 'Impulsive blog', couldn't. Why?

Vishwanath Seshadri said...

Lovely poem Ramesh... It is so nice to read about the birth of Lord Krishna in the form of a verse...

Hare Krishna !!

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Hi Vish,

Thanks!

Hare Krishna!

Ayesha Parveen said...

Very beautiful poem, indeed!It is full of well-chosen words used with a wonderful flow. Thanks,Ramesh, for this beautiful poem.

But Krishna always has a form..that of Murlidhar; He is never formless. In Goloke Vrindaavan, He is as Murlidhar: His swaroop of sat chit aanand, the state of pure bliss which jeev-souls also reach if they get saamippya moksha and play with Krishna as their best friend.

Then, for the purpose of creating the Universe, He takes up the Vishnu-form.

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Hello Ayesha :),

Thanks for your appreciation.

Krishna is the formless that pervades the whole universe. Krishna is not just the one who is as murlidhar in Vrindhavan or the one who sleeps in Vainkuntha.

I understand that your conception of Krishna is much different from mine.That's because you are going by the path of devotion. There is also a path of knowledge.

Those who travel by the path of knowledge will accept that Krishna is formless.

Meditating on Krishna as the formless is as joyful as worshiping him with a form.

If you like to have a taste of it. Please read my poem "brimming space." http://smilemakerkrishna.blogspot.com/2009/03/brimming-space.html

We can share our ideas. But we can't insist that only our understanding is correct.

If you have any doubt in what I am telling, you just ask Krishna and see. He will tell you that I am correct!

I am not satisfied with all his miracles.And all the stories about his glories!I keep demanding explanations. And he tirelessly makes me understand. He is a loving teacher! Isn't he? :)

Ayesha Parveen said...

It is clearly stated in the Bhagwat Geeta that "Vaasudeva sarvam iti"; so, He is not formless.

Henceforth, I will refrain from commenting on your posts on my Krishna, because your and my spiritual values are very different.

Ayesha

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

Many saints who chose the path of devotion too have sung of Krishna as the formless one!

shri ramesh sadasivam said...

I appreciate your devotion on Krishna Ayesha...

Why get dissappointed over trivial statements...:)

I will be glad, if you keep coming back for more arguments! :)

Dear Ramesh,
After after an extremely busy schedule in the company of my son,my daughter in law and our two,
granddaughters who had come on a holiday I got time to go thro your poem on Shri Krishna's Birth only a little while back and hence the delay in airing my views on the same.
Quite frankly the poem is amazing and it made me so spellbound that
I wish "My Tongue could utter tho Thoughts that arise in me".The more I read your writings the more I admire you.Very well done Ramesh. Keep it up.Baiyu
